It will YMMV on what games you store may have on sale.  They had all 3 priced at 29.99 each.  I believe someone said the B2G1 is going on all month.

Yeah it's just up to the store. I am in the same boat where the game selection at my family video is pretty bad. The only PS4/xbox one stuff for sale is sports games and ME Andromeda. They had a good selection of wii/ps3/360 titles but I bought a lot of the best ones last time there was a b2g1 so nowadays it's pretty dry.

 

Really great selection of Wii U games though for $10 a pop, makes me wish I actually had one.

My local Family Video stores just won't let go of their games and when they do it's always something that's been much cheaper elsewhere for a new copy. I've had my eye on Game and Wario and a few other harder to find Wii U games, but they just won't sell em' to me!

It actually kinda confuses me. I go into mine on a regular enough basis that I know the guy who runs it pretty well and he told me that they'll only sell the games when they aren't rented very often anymore. Which is just really crazy to me because I honestlydon't think anyone is renting that copy of Smash Bros. Brawl on the Wii anymore. In fact I've never seen a single Wii game actually rented when I am in there but he won't budge on that stuff.

 

I thought it was a miracle when I got Mario Galaxy 2 for 7 bucks.

They tell me the same thing and I always tell them to look at their records when the last time any of those games were rented out and they then admit that they never get rented, but they still can't sell them to me yet for whatever reason.

Finally was able to take advantage of this sale! One of my store made the mistake of pricing Anthem at $19.99 so I grabbed that, Just Cause 4 and Hitman 2 on PS4 for a total of $42.xx after tax. Took Hitman and Just Cause to a local game store (Disc Traders) and got $52 in store credit which will just about pay off MK11 on Switch at the end of the month. So essentially I got MK11 and Anthem for $40. Woot!

I wish I could find some of the deals others have in this thread. Hell, I tried to buy one of the TWO copies of Kirby Return to Dreamland for the Wii and was denied for no reason other than the woman who is there ALL the time is a stingy weirdo.

 

Ended up getting Catherine and Vanquish for BC on my Xbox One X and then a third game free to trade in at Gamestop for the trade boost. $12 wasn't too bad.

Hey now, Family Video is generous! My local locations are happy to part with Wii classics like "The Ant Bully," "Boogie" and "Wing Island" for only eight dollars a pop. /s

Family Video leaves me conflicted, man. On one hand, I love that a movie rental chain is still chugging along... but on the other hand, why did it have to be this one? >_>

I lean toward a positive outlook on FV, though, since they boost Marco's Pizza. Love that place.

Ended up getting RE2, and then got BO4 and Anthem to trade in, so I spent 60 bucks and I got RE2 and $54 of trade credit

One FV here had no signs up for the buy 2 get 1 sale. It didn't really matter because the only games they had marked for sale are the same ones they have been trying to sell for almost a year.

The other FV here was a completely different story. They had signs for the sale on the doors and tons of games marked for sale. All PS3 and 360 games are $5.99 and they had tons of PS4 and XB1 games for $9.99. I picked up with B2G1:

Outlast Trinity PS4
Gran Turismo Sport
Street Fighter 30th Ann PS4
Sniper Elite 4 PS4
Kingdom Come Deliverance PS4
WWE 2K19 PS4
Lego Movie 2 PS4
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 XB1
Attack on Titan XB1
Cars 3 XB1
NCAA Football 14 360

A few will probably go to Gamestop with the impending SB and 20% MK11 bonus.

^^^  This has to be a mistake, the game isn't even a month old so how do they know how well it will rent so early?  Still, excellent find.

No idea but they had a few other newish releases for 30 that's been mentioned in this thread (kingdom Hearts 3, metro, rdr2, RE2, and Anthem)

It's official; the local Family Video is closing.  I hadn't been in in about 2-3 weeks, swung by tonight and they were closed.  Sign said "Closing sale. open 12-8".  

 

I knew they were in trouble when the Marco's Pizza next door closed a few months ago.  If they're open tomorrow I'll let you know what kind of prices they have.

Looks like all the Indianapolis area Family Video stores finally closed.  The store locator shows 0 stores.

 

About a year ago, I think there were still 5 or 6 in business, as I would hit them up for sales.

Are you willing to mention which location is closing?

I don't think the store is closing, but particular location seems to want to clear out the Xbox 360 section with almost every title priced at 2/$3. I cleared out a lot of the titles at the store. Worth checking out your local store to see what deals may be had. They also had a number of first part 3ds, wii, and wii u games for $5 or $10.

Looks like the one I go to is closing as well. Went in today and the lady could not officially say they're going out of business, apparently, but she said today is the last day you were able to rent games/movies.

 

But more importantly for this thread, basically all X1/PS4 games are $7.99 a pop or $21 for 3. Only exceptions were the more popular games, Spider-Man, HZD, Sekiro were all $20. PS3/360 games and most Wii, Wii U, 3DS games were $5 (some first party games were $7.99)

 

Picked up Nioh, DQ11, and Attack on Titan for $21 myself. Probably going to go back in a few days as she said games will get even cheaper as well.

Damn. Where are you located? (Obviously nothing exact.) Curious if it's a regional thing.

Thankfully I decided to go back to my store today, because, they officially started their going out of business sale this morning. The $20 games (stuff like RE2, Spider-Man, DMC5, KH3, HZD, etc.) are now 2 for $25, while the games that were 3 for $21 are now 2 for $11. The $5 games are also now 2 for $8 iirc, didn't buy any of those though.

 

Picked up Spider-Man, Sekiro, Tekken 7, and Shadow of War for $36 plus tax, pretty happy with that overall.

Sekiro alone is worth 36

The store in my town is closing also. Most games are $6. I bought a few games, and will go back in a few weeks to see if they drop them further.

Several nearby stores closed recently. I missed the boat on their closing sales, but I was able to hit five different locations while on the road over the weekend. While they are not closing for now, they nonetheless had many additional 360, PS3, Wii U and 3DS games on sale. One store was even selling quite a few Switch games for $30 apiece! (This included good first-party titles.)

Of the five locations, one was still doing the classic Family Video move of protecting any non-shovelware titles like Gollum protects HIS PRECIOUS, but the other four stores were surprisingly forthcoming with the good shit. Some of my better finds included:

-Wii Sports Club (Wii U) - $4.99
-Tomodachi Life (3DS) - $4.99
-Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions (360) - $4.99
-Alice: Madness Returns (360) - $4.99
-Paper Mario Color Splash (Wii U) - $9.99
-Kirby: Planet Robobot (3DS) - $9.99

Pricing and availability are extremely YMMV, naturally, but I'm glad I hit these stores. It can be tedious waiting for FV to part with good games, but it's so satisfying when they finally do.

Yeah my store never budged until quite literally the end. Only PS4 games that were ever available to buy were old sports games and big name bombs. ME: Andromeda being the one that always came to mind. It sat on the shelf with a $10 price tag until their going out of business sale started where someone finally got it lol.

 

Anyhow, I went back to mine and ended up getting a couple more games with the 2 for $11: AC Black Flag and Lego Marvel Super Heroes. Pretty much the only games left I wanted for the current prices. Will go back later on though as they said once they get closer to the final closing date they will probably make everything even cheaper just to get rid of it. It's very slim pickings now but there are still some games I'd pick up if they were only a couple of bucks.
