So... it looks like the GC era is over and only the PS2 is left. It's weird to think that the GC is over a decade old.

It sad that so many games were destroyed by GS's poor resurfacing machines.

Currently playing: 

:wiiu: Xenoblade X (2nd try) - :-k 

:pc: The Witcher - :)

I was lucky enough to find resident evil 4 and it worked great. Problem is that now it is asking for disc 2 and I never got a second disc :(

Anyone have the other half?


Also I just noticed that the promotion no longer works online. Guess they aren't extending it :(

Welp, my GC spree ended with 60~ games purchased and about 70-80 dollars spent.
I scoured tons of gamestops in eastern PA and almost all of NJ. I got every good or expensive game on the system now, cept a few that I knew weren't in stores anymore (at least in the tristate area). Sadly a good 40-50 of those were in sleeves =(
Those poor poor boxes...


It sounds like you would have spent more on gas than anything else....

He is going to justify it by saying he had to go that way anyway.


Have fun wasting more gas returning 80% of them because they don't play. :) this is one deal where getting "more" may not be a good thing.

Nice find on the Gotcha Force! You better keep it! :lol: I highly recommend you play the game as well; it's one of the most underrated and fun titles out there! I probably played through the story multiple times and the reply value is just so immense! You'll have fun collecting the Borgs and recruiting the characters. The Game has a flawed Camera System but you'll get it over it quick, switching over to the enemies without a hitch.

I probably spent most of the time trying to collect the neat Transformer Borgs and Futuristic Borgs. Haha.

EDIT: and my order just got confirmed.

Also yeah is the promo still working? I want to transfer a few games but nobody here currently working knows how.

Posted in the B1G1 50% off ps2 thread exactly how to get a transfer.

Just a heads up, by lying and acting like you work for gamestop to get a transfer done you are jeopardizing the employees at the gamestop receiving the games. They get in trouble with their DM's for doing low yield transfers. That is why it is at their discretion whether or not they will do a transfer.

considering gs probably gave pennies on the dollar on the ps2 games, not too worried (dot hack part 4 alone is $44.99)

You seem to be missing the point and illogically rationalizing your actions. TIVs are set by Gamestop Corporate, not Gamestop employees. You are advocating fooling Gamestop employees and getting the unaware transfer recipient Gamestop employees into trouble just because you have the transfer protocol down.

Your whole argument is that they can get in trouble for 'low yield' transfers. When ONE of the games is $44.99. I doubt they will get in trouble when they picked it up for $5 or so. Making $40.
If it was a $2 game sure, also... how will the employee get in trouble? THEY didn't make the transfer request, don't get mad at me for gamestop protocol flaws.

Not to mention the stores near here have a looping video advertising that they do transfers. If they get in trouble for doing what their company advertises then maybe they work for the wrong company.

Yeah well, they have rules about it. No point in transferring a $0.99 gamecube broadband adapter from New York to Cali if the shipping costs them $8 and the customer will only pay $0.25 after discount right? So when you go to ask them for that to happen, they reserve the right to say "No" (and they are told to say "No"). What is being suggested here is to circumvent the process by acting like you are an employee asking to have an item transferred to your store. Now that isn't to say that they won't do it if you offer to pay for shipping... [guess how I know about the broadband example ;) ]

Your whole argument is that they can get in trouble for 'low yield' transfers. When ONE of the games is $44.99. I doubt they will get in trouble when they picked it up for $5 or so. Making $40.

It's not an issue of getting mad Champ, I'm simply explaining the consequences of the actions you are suggesting people take to get cheap games. The store manager of the Gamestop that receives low yield transfers will feel the heat from their district manager. Yes, "low yield". Keep in mind you are quoting the 44.99 price for a PS2 game in a thread about Gamecube games that are 75% off...

Remember, this is cheapassgamer.com not scumbaggamer.com

Anyway, people can do whatever they please. No skin off my nose, I just wanted to add some info from the other side of the spectrum.

I didn't pretend to be a game stop employee when i called to see about getting .hack 4 transferred over to a store near me. I asked if they could because my gamestop told me its possible and he said yeah as long as it wasnt like across the country and if i had the store number

Ok we shoulda taken this to a diff thread it's off topic, belongs in the PS2 B1G1 thread ATLEAST. but yes transferring a $1 thing is shady, a $45 game less so, and nobody wants employees in trouble.

Got my 18 games in the mail today. Only 2 had cover art (Ultimate Spiderman & Wave Race), one was complete (Bomberman Jetters), Looked at the discs and none looked rough. Hopefully I got lucky. No huge titles mostly non sports filler. Still happy with 18 games for about a buck a piece before shipping. Will be testing tonight. Wish me luck I may need it.


All Said and done 15 worked no problem. 3 did not. Went to local store returned 2 and managed to exchange 1 which surprised me. So overall not bad for what it was.
