Just got back from BestBuy and they had a few of the collectors Ed. Guides bundled with games. There was a sign buy a game get guide for free. My bestbuy has been doing this with all guides that have deleted skus. I saw RE 6 and Mass effect 3 Final Fantasy Uncharted 3 collectors Ed. Guides. I don't know if all the those guides have deleted skus. No one around to check price.

Nice deal, but def. YMMV. I'd buy UC3 for a free CE guide.

Awesome list. Too bad i'll never be able to get any of these. The only successful penny guide at Gamestop i've ever gotten was a torn and tattered Star Wars III guide that most people wouldn't even want.

Could go for LoZ and Skyrim (not the revised one im assuming though). Can't check online for stock that I can see and since GS is hit(%1) or miss(99%)... oh well.

Lol. We just did it at the same time I guess. I was actually referring to the complete alphabetized list of GS drops. It's done though. The OP has been updated.

Picked up NSMB2 and SH Downpour. Asked if they had any others and her reply was I do not know and do not care.

I wonder this. GameStop in particular tosses guides a the time, some times hundreds from one store. It happens generally monthly. I can't imagine the guide industry and GameStop makes much profit at all in the end since so many go to waste, so why bother even carrying them in store anymore?

I lucked out and was able to get a DOA 5 guide and a Playstation All-Stars Guide as well.

An accosiate told me they rarely actually sell them. It's far more likely for them to be dumped. Great haul today though, I got:
2x Ghost Recon
2x Lego Batman 2
2x Sleeping Dogs
1x MoH Warfighter
1x Fable the Journey
1x Zombi U
1x PS All Stars Battle Royal

There were plenty more there, but I decided to only take ten.

I know.. They waste more then they sell, it's nuts.

Tad jealous of your haul. My local store had inventory and a manager there opening early so my hookup didn't get any guides at all, even for himself. Everything is gone, I completely missed out. Quite bothered by it.

I had gotten 1 of each of the guides. Was very happy with my haul i got When I was gonna check out the guy freak out and told me he could get fired if he gave them to me. Because the regional manager comes and makes sure those guides are destroyed.

I just said ok and walked out. Oh well. I'll go to another GameStop later.

While on the hunt for GC games for other cags was only able to get one of the three I wanted Tekken TT2. Still looking for Lego Batman 2 and Silent Hill. My local sold a boatload during the 50% off sale but they assured me that when the stock in the back drops they got me. I saw the stock they had left. 30+ copies of Halo 4 COD BO II AC III. Never seen that many HC guides before crazy!
