Last night during my shift at TRU my manager had a bunch of Xbox One launch games pulled aside to "look into" For whatever reason the vanilla versions of

 

Ryse

Dead Rising 3

Forza 5

 

are ringing up for $0.02 in the system. He obviously wouldn't let me buy them, and I'm not sure if its a glitch in our system or if its company wide. Their website still lists these titles for their original or sale price.

There are new versions of all three of those games, so they are probably trying to remove the old/original versions. If it rang up for .02 though, that would be interesting to see if they ring up like that in stores.

Yeah when I went to exchange regular ryse for the legendary edition at Walmart a couple weeks ago the lady had a sheet saying to pull all the regular editions of it and a few other games. They had a ton of them left over.

Wow, would be a nice flip to GS or BB maybe? Might try and see if I can snag some before they're pulled... maybe with the amiibo sale today they'll be too busy to do so :D

Nothing like trashing games people would happily buy at a deep discount.

So anyone tried to make a purchase yet?

I might go to TRU if they literally are selling them for 2 cents

That would be great. Just don't be stupid enough to get 3 games and try to check out. Get the games you want to try plus another shit just to cover the prices.

Looks like they were trying to top that one Batman boxart. C for effort, but I can still see the car on the front. They should really have put a few dozen more quotes on it. Maybe put them in rainbow colors to grab people's attention.

That's what I figure, unless the poster can produce a legit receipt picture, won't be wasting my time.
