I'm having bad luck finding these ps2 games.  I went to three Gamestop shops and all three told me, they shipped games to specific location.  I called this specific Gamestop location from Gamestop employee’s advice.  They said shipped all ps2 games to another place, but their inventory still have all the games.   I’m confused…….

Stores are actually doing inventory right now so that could be why. I'm only a GA so I don't know the specifics but it's possible you may have JUST missed out. We had to turn away a guy's return of his system because he had a disc stuck in it and it would have been sent away and therefor forever lost.

Ape Escape: Pumped and Primed - disc only

Burnout Revenge - disc only

Digital Devil Saga - disc and manual - for trade!

Ico - complete, excellent condition - for trade! 

Lifeline - disc

Phantom Brave - for trade!

Ribbit King - 2 discs

Silent Hill 3 - disc only - maybe trade

Sly 2 - disc

Sonic Mega Collection Plus - disc

Urban Reign - disc

My haul:

 

I was more interested in quality than quantity. I didn't buy anything I wouldn't play or didn't want. Just mainly looking for games I didn't have.

Paid just under $100 for all that I believe. Have to add it all up.

Stopped by Gamestop to grab some cheap PS2 games today. For just under $16.00 I grabbed:

 

Winback Covert Operations

Tomb Raider Angel of Darkness

Time Crisis 3

Time Crisis Crisis Zone

The Thing

Star Wars Episode I Racer Revenge

Ratchet Deadlocked

P.T.O. IV

Naval Ops Commander

Lifeline

Fire Pro Wrestling Returns

Evergrace

Deus Ex

Armored Core Last Raven

 

Pretty happy with it since PTO IV is worth more than I spent for all

Got a small haul yesterday, will post mine in full later. Yesterday I ended up getting:
Ace Combat V
Ace Combat 0
Under The Skin
The Thing
Motorstorm Artic Edge
Indiana Jones Emperors Tomb
The Punisher

The Punisher ended up not working as it has a ton of scratches. Might also be that I need to clean my PS2s laser. Still, does anyone know if GameStop still fixes discs? I'd do it for The Punisher since I heard its a great game and I'm a big Marvel fan. Guess I'll be trying toothpaste, it was so cheap I don't think it's worth a trip to return it.

Huh, I guess it is - looking on ebay, a disk-only copy sold on Monday for $35, and I don't see another one listed right now (cheapest US version listed is a complete copy for $60).  I've had the LE of that one since it came out, glad I picked it up back then & hung onto it.  :)

Believe me. I had to sift through hundreds of copies of The incredibles and The Golden Compass to find descent stuff. Ha ha. I think people cleaned them out the first few days of the sale being announced. And also, some gamestops got rid of their good games.

So I was browsing eBay and I saw a loose disc copy of Budokai Tenkaichi 3 for PS2 going in a auction for $65+.

I checked GS.com and saw one is available at a store not far from me. I sent in a request for pick up just in case.

What I wanna know is the price at GS.com is $34.99. Will it be $34.99 - 75%? I mean it should right? Also anyone else know of any good investment games to take from this besides the obvious?

The price will be 75% off the lowest marked price. GS.com doesn't reflect the sale price. But don't be surprised if you get a "could not fulfill order" email.

I didn't submit any payment information and I was thinking I'd probably end up with a could no be fufilled email but worth a shot!

Thinking of heading up there just to see whats there. My closest gamestop has some PS2 games but they are 45-60% Guitar hero 3, sports and fishing games.

I saw a copy of it in at least one store, maybe two when I was driving all over looking for games. Crap.

Was on a business trip so I took advantage of the opportunity to poach some games from other regions.  Had some pretty good luck.

 

First store:

 

Prince of Persia: Warrior Within

Harvey Birdman

Sims 2 Castaway

Spartan: Total Warrior

Star Wars: Clone Wars Republic Heroes

LaPussy Tactics

Persona 3 FES x2

 

Second Store:

 

Sly 2 Band of Theives

Sly 3 Honor Among Thieves

Ratchet & Clank Size Matters

Ratchet & Clank Going Commando

Star Wars Racer Revenge

Red Faction II

The Fast and the Furious

The Spiderwick Chronicles

Persona 3 FES

Persona 4

 

Third Store:

 

Disgaea 2

Eternal Poison

Nobunga's Ambition Iron Triangle

Shadow of the Colossus

Persona 3 FES :roll:

 

Fourth Store:

 

Star Wars Episode III

Crash of the Titans

Ape Escape 3

Midway Arcade Treasures 2

Megaman X Collection

Clock Tower 3

Heavenly Guardian

Zone of the Enders: The 2nd Runner

 

Only the first store had any games on the floor.  The first three stores were within about 2 miles of each other.  One of the employees at the fourth store didn't even know they still had PS2 games.  I figure soon employees will be instructed to start tossing these, so I'm grabbing any decent titles on hand.  Obviously I have a few copies of Persona 3 FES available.

I have an extra .Hack Mutation copy I snagged. It comes with the anime DVD too. Discs are a little beat up, but no major big scratches that would prevent it from working. I've definitely seen worse as far as used games go. I tested it and it works through to the opening few minutes of gameplay. Didn't test more than that. Anime DVD worked too. I was thinking about just keeping it, but might be willing to part with it. Can't think of anything PS2-wise I want or need right now though.

Call me stupid (I've looked through the last few pages as well), but this sale only applies to in-store games, correct? Online prices remain the same with the 75% off, right?

 

Edit - seems that every one is reporting the same. Oh well. Really was hoping.
