Maybe we can get a list going of some of the better .99 games. I'll contribute with:

Space Channel 5: Special Edition
Herdy Gerdy
Metal Arms: Glitch in the System
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty

Puzzle crosswords & more

I picked these up at .99 during a b2g1 and enjoyed them

Tomorrow, Thursday, is 9/20, not Monday. Does it really start on Thursday? Thanks for confirming it though, I know I'll be getting a bunch at that price.

I was looking at the games yesterday and did not see any of those games for .99, aside for mgs2. Maybe they are reducing the price of more games to .99 now in preparation of the sale?

GS should reduce prices for all ps2 games and not just the $0.99 games crap!

Confirmed. It's tomorrow. I'm grabbing and putting my stuff away when I close tonight

Edit: Oh it's 5 for $1 if they are .99 or less, and b2g2 for the $1- 3.99

Edit 2: No price drops. There are some gems there like the cool boarders and some Matrix games and the like, but mostly sports games and crapzilla are in this range. In for a collection of games w/cases

So nothing for games priced higher than $3.99? That sucks.

I don't know if you guys are into music games, but they had a LOT of Dance Dance Revolution games last week. I ended up getting 5 of them for under 10 bucks.

DDRMAX 1/2, Extreme 2, DDRX 1/2

So witht his deal I could have got them all for a dollar :(


They had a lot of GTA's too, including LC/VC Stories, GTA 3, VC, SA

So same thing with them

I'll try to check this out tomorrow. I probably won't be able to make it but I would love to pick up some games, you can't beat 5 for $1, even if they aren't the best games in the world.

Space Channel 5: Special Edition
Naruto Ultimate Ninja
Mojo
Stuntman
GoDai: Elemental Force (Never played but looks interesting)
Freekstyle
LOTR: The Two Towers
Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty


That was the stuff that showed up online that looked worth $.20

As for someone who doesn't own a PS2 or backwards compatible PS3, would this be worth flipping at Best Buy? Looks like a handful of PS2 games trade in for 25 cents and with the extra 100% we can be looking at about 30 cents profit per game.

As I was typing that out, I've decided it's not worth it.

I did the math and it is most certainly worth it. For ever dollar you spend at game stop you get 2.65 in credit at Best Buy. So let's say that you spent 10 dollars at Game Stop you would end up with about 26.50 in Best Buy credit. This is most certainly worth it. Going to try to get as many of these PS2 games a possible. :)

I have to disagree. From a dollars and cents standpoint it makes sense I guess but it's only going to help push you over the volume trader threshold and get banned from trading.

I read it wrong, I thought it would be all games for a dollar.

Employees at my local GS had no idea about this deal/promo... hopefully a GS around me has this. 5 games for a buck isn't too bad.

Wait, I'm sort of confused

Is the B2G2 on everything? Not just <$4?

$ price <= 3.99, buy 2 get 2 free; $ price <= .99, 5 for $1.

<= (less than or equal to)

Thats what I feared, was hoping sasukekun meant everything over $1 was B2G2

This sale is almost pointless for me, most of the games I want are over $4

Didnt see any mention of it being B2G2 free under $4. I can recheck tomorrow night.

This is the stupidest sale ever... Talk about getting my hopes up for nothing.

I'm starting to get the feeling that the PS2 is like that roach that won't die at gamestop. I feel like I've been waiting forever for them to blowout their old PS2 inventory.

Well, the $3.99 restriction destroyed my hopes. But after sifting through a few pages, I think I found a few worthwhile titles.
Lumines Plus
Zatch Bell
Shadow of Destiny
Deus Ex
Yuyu Hakusho: Dark Tournament
Viewtiful Joe

All of these are $1.99 and they all look ok or at least good for a filler item. Just hoping most of them come with a case, but likely not. Either way, 4 games for pretty much a dollar a piece is not bad.

Id be more interested in this if they didnt throw out all the cases on games 4.99 and less.
