Well, that is your definition of "valuable." I am thinking more along the lines of "piece of crap"


You could at least donate it to Game Grumps. Arin would probably love it.

I wish I could look away from this train wreck but I occasionally check here for a laugh or two.

So I bought two PS3 mystery bags and after reading this thread, I was honestly expecting duplicates.

 

#1 - with black sharpie dot next to bar code

Infamous 2 (disc only)

God of War III (complete)

Dead Rising 2 (disc only)

Soul Calibur IV (disc only)

 

$2 - with purple sharpie dot

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (disc only)

UFC Undisputed 2010 (complete)

Call of Duty: World at War (disc only)

Grand Theft Auto IV (complete)

 

I'm going to call to see if they'll accept mix and match returns.

I don't understand why you all keep supporting this company. I've bought one game from them in the last 5 years.

Its convenient for people to buy games from. Its convenient to flip games for credit or to pick up cheap stuff to transfer credit elsewhere. You can always return their garbage (which includes the mystery bags). Sometimes their preorder inclusions are better than competitors. Sometimes they actually run good deals/promotions. You know....rationale reasons. Its not like anyone here are share holders who are investing in the company or glorifying GS's business practices.

I support then because they're the only retailer that has a physical store where you can purchase more obscure titles.

They are a great place to get JRPGs.

 

I have picked up a ton of DS ones there, for under $10.

I support them cause their price for used jrpgs with PUR is almost always cheaper than anything you find online unless it is on sale online. 

 

Damn I wanted to get a bag and maybe hope to grab Bayonetta for PS3 in it but it seems like the chances would be around zero.

PS3 is still in stock, but it looks like the rest are sold out. I think I found out what they did with them...

It wasn't old sports games, it was that if you bought 2, you got fucking doubles. I think a few sports games were sprinkled in here and there, but not a box full.

 

It wasn't bad for 20 bucks or so, solid titles, but if it cost more than that it would be shit.

It also depends on how long you've had the system... Really pretty good for a new owner, but most of us who've had the system for years bought and played those games long ago. The kids might not have it too bad...

I wonder how that conversation goes when you are a video game company and you are donating Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 games.

 

"Hello child, which video game system do you have?"

 

"I don't have either sir. I was hoping for food."

 

"Ok Jimmy, just take the games and move on, I'm taking a Twitter picture here to show everyone what we're doing."

Well, most bags have games, but there's that one rare bag with valuable food that someone might find.

I missed out on the first run of this grab bag so now that it restocked I went ahead and bought the PS3 version which came with:

Red Dead Redemption

Little Big Planet GOTY red label

Little Big Planet 2

Soul Calibur IV

 

Unfortunately I could not get past the install screen of Red Dead Redemption and was told to send all four back for an exchange. I don't mind since I already had both LBP games so hopefully I get one with more variety this time.

They became available several weeks before the b2g1 sale but I was waiting for something worthwhile to combine shipping and the b2g1 sale hit the spot. I simply kept checking every few days and when I noticed they came back was afraid posting the info here would cause them to sell out before I had a chance to buy one. There aren't any Wii grab bags time around though there wasn't much interesting there anyways. 

This also didn't count as an applicable game for the b2g1 sale and neither did pro discount apply automatically even though the product page specified it but the way I applied the discount means I wouldn't have a standing with customer service.

Can you guys not bump shitty deals? We all know this is a way to make more money out of people who think they'll be getting something good but don't realize that in actuality it's a grab bag of junk GS wouldn't be able to make a profit on individually.

 

I have a gr8 deel 4 u, 4 gaemz 4 $20 no dupes. Just lemme go buy MLB The Show 07, MAG, SOCOM Confrontation, and Madden 10 really quick for 99 cents each.

First, the op links don't work. Please update so that no one misses out on this amazing deal.

PS3: http://www.gamestop....tation-3/120404

 

Second, Gamestop has upped the ante on these babies for PS3 owners only. Now when you buy the PS3 grab bag you have a chance to score a whopping $24 worth of games! I just bought two.

I agree.  They do have crazy prices on alot of older games, but I do find deals on stuff I don't have to add to my collection.  I shop everywhere, who ever has the best deal gets my money. Period
