Weird that the store even marked it out $1c and put it on shelves and not sell it to you when you saw them in the floor? But yeah, sorry for the loss man.

Back when I first joined CAG there were several BB stores that would clearly mark their guides $.01(Seacaucus, NJ, for one) and even put out a shelf tag marked a penny too. I also noticed that most of the guides I used to get from my closest GS store for being on their 'good' side(making and keeping tons of pre-orders) would have penny stickers on them.

That's the thing that amuses me most about the pennied guides is that both BB and GS sticker them with the penny stickers just to end up throwing them in the fuckin' dumpster.

Anyway, I stopped at that lil flea market place where the guy used to have tons of guides from drops 6-8 months ago from BB. He had all guides marked 50% off. I thought about buying a Lost Planet 2 one for $1 just in case I grab the game used from BB sometime. But I changed my mind. Otherwise he has crap for guides and doesn't seem to be putting any newer/different stuff out.;)

Ladies and gentlemen, fear not, for I have arrived! I went to BB today to try to find Duke Nukem and Battlefield 3 for the sale price. Didn't find them, but I decided to ring up a handful of guides. And one was pennied. The Fallout New Vegas CE has now been officially pennied. So, no, it looks like BB has not dealt with their issue of pennied guides. We're still getting them.

Uh-oh. Now I have to check my store to see if the 9+ copies there have mysteriously vanished...

Don't worry about it. I'm sure someone will update the OP if you don't. After all, people on here don't just want the deals without doing any work to help contribute, right?;)

It's not like when I still had this thread I made the OP a Wiki and had to goad people into finally updating it to help out/contribute.

What I find funniest on here is how most of the people who cry about this being a community that helps one another will also be the same people who sit on their hands and do nothing to actively contribute or help out.

Interesting. Maybe the Wiki feature has been changed since I had this thread, since I just remember someone having edited it and the edit showing up soon after.

EDIT: Hmmm. I see edits from both you and WeaponX2099 on the OP. But yet it doesn't really highlight what was edited by either person when clicking on the view link.

But I'm assuming that WeaponX added the TRU 2-3 guide drop, since their post earlier in the thread mentioned them pennying Dead Rising 2 and Medal Of Honor.

Have we had any other confirmation of anyone getting the fallout guide for a penny? RSS is showing $34.99 for it via the SKU at my store.

Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood (regular and LE)
Brink
Bulletstorm
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
Donkey Kong Country Returns
Dragon Age II LE
Epic Mickey
Fallout: New Vegas LE
Homefront (regular and LE)
Infamous 2
Mortal Kombat LE
NCAA Football 11
Pokemon Black/White LE
Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver Volumes 1,2 and 3
Resident Evil Archives II
Resistance 3
The Sims 3: Medieval
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed II
Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine
White Knight Chronicles II
WWE All Stars

There's probably more, but my store has been a little lacking in getting guides these days, so I don't know what else.

And once again, THESE ARE NOT PENNIED YET.



I went to Best Buy today and tried Infamous 2 since we have confirmation that Fallout has pennied. Unfortunately Infamous wasn't pennied yet. I forgot to try out WWE All Stars since that was the only other one they had.

What is RSS? If it's an online price checker, it won't inform you of pennied guides. And a handful of people on the previous page confirmed getting it. If there's one at your store and you want it, get it. It's definitely pennied.

RSS is Best Buy's internal inventory checking system. If you've ever asked an employee to look up to see if a store has a specific item by giving them a SKU#, then chances are you've seen their RSS in action.

From that inventory screen they can typically also look up the inventory counts at other stores in your district and even tell you if there's more of an item en route to those stores as long as it's not a discontinued/deleted item.

Went to my Best Buy today and in looking over the guides, found a regular Fallout:NV, a Dragon Age II guide, and a Mortal Kombat guide marked with yellow stickers. They all rang up full price, but the guy said they'd probably penny out soon.

Talked to the staff working and he said they usually pre-pull the guides that gets pennied out in the system. They just missed the guides i apparently got. And since it was in the system and i found them on the shelf, he just let me buy them.

you might want to get your guides soon or else they might be gone next time.

A bunch of what?

I NEVER go to the trading area, it moves too quick. Guide trades for regulars should be done here.
