So the 75% still works in store. Here is the games I got during this sale.

yu-gi-oh falsebound kingdom (i know. its a alright game if u like yugioh)
x2 Mario party 4 (sold one here on CAG to help out.)
star wars rogue squad 3
robotech battlecry
x2 resident evil zero (may trade/sell)
star wars rogue 2
x2 mario golf (sold one to same CAG here)
x2 fight night round 2 (yay. super punch out alone worth it if u like snes. may trade/sell)
ikaruga :)
lord of the rings return of the king (fan of star wars and lotr)
naruto clash of ninja (never played, but so cheap)
naruto 2: clash (saw tv show...not bad. wonder if naruto is worth it?)
metroid prime (i have the wii collection)
gotcha force (played it. its alright, just not my type of game.)
super smash bros melee
Total: $41.25

I live in the DC/MD area. No, I did not drive to many GS. It's funny that super smash bros melee wasn't showing in the online store inventory, but gs employee found it in the drawer complete with case and booklet. His computer stated that they didnt have it in stock. All games tested and works. Sure mostly disc only, but they all work and wanted some for gamecube since I skip it duing the good old xbox/halo days.
I requested a store transfer on 1/14/13 for a gameboy player and eternal darkness. The GS I got the games said that it depends on the DM. If the transfer is within 15 miles, then the manager has to drive it to that location. He also stated that transfering one item is losing them money (UPS) and if they dont sell then they will transfer to another store or back to warehouse in Texas. So anyone trying to do transfer, your store manager may say yeah, but they most luckly didnt do it. (I try many times and kept blowing smoke, but Im glad I was able to get some alright titles to build my gamecube collection. Thanks OP.

Update on transfer. Well the store I just called said that they no longer have the game eternal darkness :cry: Looks like the employee may have purchase it since the other store haven't receive it yet. Oh well.

I'm more or less done with this sale (got most of the stickers off, too!). Anything else i'd really go for is not available within 100 miles. I may pick something up if I see it in the store or there is a website re-stock, but i'm done specifically GC shopping at GS for this.

Here's what I did...
Posted Image

Baten Kaitos Origins isn't from GS, rather something I happened to find in between GS stores. Kao was from ebay, it was supposed to be GC version $4.xx shipped. When it arrived it was the PS2 version, and the seller refunded my money and let me keep the game as well so that was pretty awesome. Everything else is from the GS sale. The two without covers are Harvest Moon: A Wonderful Life and Mystic Heroes.

It still shows through Jan 27th. The deal will probably exist until they take a wrecking ball to the remaining discs which shouldn't be long.

Wend to pickup Fire Emblem - Radiant Dawn, and Fire Emblem - Shadow Dragon at my local gamestop (In honor of the new Fire Emblem coming out), and was surprised to see that they still had non-sports games left. Ended picking up about anything non sports. Will update later with what I got!

Try it in both GC and Wii. Sometimes it works in one and not the other.

Games no longer showing in the web site. I think they destroyed the games that were left.

I will wait until 90% off so I can get one of those cheap quality GS GC controllers... there is a bunch in all nearby GS, from what I have read they break rather easily... I wanted a wavebird since the promo started , but none of my close GS have them of course.

I still have a backlog of Win 98 games sealed, at least I'm done w/ my floppies! :lol:

I heard that gamestop was stocking up on old school games because eventually they will start selling old retro games online. But anyways, I doubt that they would keep the sports ones.

Yeah some GS corporate guy said they were doing that, made it sound like it was going to be online and in store and also like it was going to start extremely soon. That was half a year ago, if not longer.

Still, if it ever happens...

1. GameStop.com
2. search "stadium events"
3. In-store pick up
4. Reserve 100 miles away
5. Win.

Actually found a system today, but they would not discount it from the $19.99 price. Said corporate recalled all the games and they already shipped them back. This was one of the GCN consolidation stores.

I don't believe consoles were ever part of this sale. Games and accessories only. At any rate, $20 for a console is a pretty sweet price especially if it is the dol-100 with the digital out port and even more especially if PUR Pro brings it down to $18.

Boo! Got the shaft on instore transfer. The GC games were there .. then they were gone. Was trying to get a few titles for some " newbie " cag's. The manager who is pretty cool with me said likely snatched up by one of his minions. He also said jokes on them almost 75% of the games guaranteed to work wouldn't. Was honest at least. Let me go with a few more guides for my troubles :)

Online stock tracker said that a nearby store had a few Mario Party and Resident Evil titles, as well as Metroid Prime 2 and a few other games. Went to the store today to check it out, and the employee told me that they got rid of all GC games last week. I knew I should have checked it out sooner. :(

Yeah. Complaining about a $20 GC system is kinda foolish, especially since they've become scarce at Gamestops, and resellers want at least $40 for them.

They actually have a few games in stock now. I thought they got rid of them all? Hopefully, the ones the stores returned will end up on their website though.

Not sure if the deal is live online still but...

The deal is definitely live in stores, I picked up donkey konga 2 yesterday for 75% off. GBA games are also 75% off if you find a store selling them. I picked up a few at $0.45 for the shells and battery.

PUR Pro NEVER reduces the price of systems, just games and accessories.

Doh, I sold one to a CAG for $18. #-o Bah I've got like 12 or 13 of them anyway.

Yes he said resellers... but just because that's what they want isn't what it's worth, I can get 5 GC's with hookups and controller for $30 ea at a local game store, if they pay for shipping $18-20 is VERY fair for both parties.

Not complaining, just sayin'. Early in the thread, it was speculated that this may qualify for the 75% off sale making it $5.

Now, the fact that the system looks like it was pulled out of a toilet with dried poo on it and the included MadCatz controller instead of Nintendo manufactured original would be the reasons I would be complaining.

Big Restock just happened. Managed to grab RE 1, RE 0, Baten Kaitos, Warioware, Wario World, Gladius, DK Jungle Beat, TMNT, and Starfox Adventures. Couldn't get CAG16 to stack but 15FREE did.
