I refuse to believe that they had Persona 4 and Persona 3 for .99


wasnt .99 cents but was sleeve only and guy didn't give 2 shits because I was a regular on top of it having no price to begin with just barecode.

Hope he gets fired, a game like that should never be sleeve only. That has to be one lazy gamestop

They do take disc only trade-ins and they tend to pitch cases that are empty so they would most likely only have a sleeve to put a game in....

When I was checking out the guy there said that this is phase 3 of 5 of the PS2 sale. He said that the next one is any game that is $10 or less will be $4. Then phase 5 is those games in a buy 2, get 2. I asked if they were going to throw out the games after today's sale and he told me this.

Alright, I spent 15.97 (with tax) on 38 games! You might ask how,right? My GS was doing 10 $0.99 PS2 Games for $1!!!!!!1
I figure $3 on 30 games isn't bad and 13 on the rest is alright XD

Here is what I got for $3:

A lot huh?:D

Then I got:

The guys there had said they had sold only 10 games before I had been there and that if they could they would have given them all to me. XD

Obviously I did good, since most were $0.10, but does anything stick out to you guys?

Hope you guys had as much luck as I think I did!

Also the best part is that the receipt is about 3 feet long:whee:. I win!

Very Interesting...I will be on the look out for this. There is some solid games to be picked up at the $4 price point...its just a shame most Gamestops throw out the cases. :roll:

I'm not going to discount what he said. But the Email from my DM clearly said tomorrow, all games .99 and below are trash, and 3.99 and below are defective ships to the warehouse.

I went to another store and between the SM and I, bought all .99 discs so we can donate them.

So are they throwing out all of the $0.99 :ps2: games after today's sale?

Went today and picked up Tenchu 2, MOH: Pacific and European, and Legacy of Kain Blood Omen 2.
I was looking through their 3.99 and up games and they are definitely some good ones to be had in there. I would love to try out the Manhunt series. But I still wouldn't pay $4 a piece for them. Holding out for B2G2 and hopefully better.

Of the 74 games I picked up last week, I've traded in 50 of them in to Best Buy for $27 in-store credit and used it to buy the Sept @gamer mag (never got mine that month), Mass Effect 3, and Battlefield 3 (Using coupons).

Came to the realization that a majority of the games were crap and worth more to me being traded in for a couple of better titles. I did keep 24 PS2 games that I felt like might still be worth something.

Games as popular as those are suppose to get fake cases put up for them, not thrown in a sleeve only area(easy to steal). I used to work for Gamestop.

All the stores I've hit this weekend had a mix of more expensive games in sleeves as well.

No rhyme or reason, some of the games in cases were under $5.

I scouted out a bunch of worthwhile games in my area for the $10 and under sale, so I'll probably be picking up a bunch of stuff whenever that starts.

I asked the guy in my area about them trashing the 99c games on monday...he said he didnt recieve any word to do that from anyone. Even checked the emails to see if one came that talked about that. He said he couldnt find anything. Maybe only some are trashing them? Its suppose to be tomorrow that the trash them...so by the end of the day right?
