$125 for Borderlands GOTY ? Got two unopened ones will have to see if I can get something for them and try to move my RDR GOTY guide as well. Thanks for the info TN


I cant believe some people actually pay that much money for these things lol. I sold my Mass effect LE guide w/ artbook for $250 last year. I just cant understand someone paying that much for a guide. haha after learning about penny guides its hard for me to pay anything >.01 for one.

Not a problem, we appreciate the updates! :)

Edit: OP is updated. Also, please note that Birth By Sleep had already dropped at some point previously.


Haha you're right. Thanks for catching that.
It was Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance that dropped yesterday.

Regular and hard cover guides should ring up not for sale. If an employee looks up the price in some inventory mode they can see the price is 1 cent. YMMV, some employees/managers just give you the guides, deny, or let you buy the guide for retail price marked on the cover.

Thanks. Was at a BB earlier and they had a ME3 guide still marked at $24.99. Might go back in a bit and see what I can get it for.

Anyone still considering the Red Dead Redemption GOTY guide direct from Bradygames, I finally got the cancellation notice from my order of 1/18/13. Out of Stock.

imo most guides aren't worth msrp unless it's an rpg or a thick hardcover with nice artwork.

Confirmed so far:

ONLY the CE is missing on the website, also I cant find any Wii U guides besides NSMB U (might of missed ZombiU if it dropped a while ago) OMG EPIC MICKEY 2 CE IS FINALLY PENNIED!!! (not that I'm excited but I have seen that thing every time I go in, and now that I think of it I think I remember seeing it in the last drop)

You're welcome. I missed out on any and all guides. I need Hitman CE I just won't pay as much for a guide as I did for the game.

yea, I really want that guide as well. went in today at the BB near my office, and they didn't have it:cry:

but, I did take a few guides up just to get a price check. TR CE came up for retail (waaaaaaay too much) but I can confirm that GOW 3 LE and FF XIII-2 CE are .01/not in the store inventory. had a manager guy come over after the girl got freaked out about them not being in the system, and he hooked me up for free!

FF XIII is an old drop from a good month back. GoW of course is new.

I would buy these guides at a decent price! I'll never pay $40 for a guide, when often they cost more than I paid for the game.

Tried for CODBO, EM2, H:A, and DS3. All came up as "Not available for sale." However, this time was a bit different - the cashier checked the pricing in RSS, and found that they were still listed as retail price, vs. the normal $.01. Looks like BB is now marking these not for sale and NOT changing the price to a penny. Can anyone else confirm this?

Needless to say, looks like this might be the final nail in the coffin for penny guides at BB.
