Which one are you talking about, the $40 one or the $120 one? There are 2 stores here with the $40 one, none with the $120 one. Besides, I don't think I could bring myself to dump $60 on a strategy guide for a game and franchise I've never played.


The easiest flip is the standard paperback one. It's going for $40-$50 right now on Amazon. Not sure about the regular hardback one on EBay but it isn't a good flip on Amazon.

The super hardback one would be an insane flip. It's going for $180 sealed on Amazon right now.

That seems weird, given that you can order the paperback guide on GS for $12.50, and it seems that every store has it. How it can sell for more than MSRP on Amazon is rather baffling. The non-Inquisitor ones don't seem to flip for much on eBay, and even the Inquisitor one only seems to net $140-160.

Where are you pulling these numbers from? I looked up on Amazon and it's not even close.

My area has various Hyrule and Smash guides if people need them. PM me asap if you want me to get you one. You pay for shipping.

Well, just came back from GS and I'm pretty pissed.  I had Bayonetta 2 CE guide and Hyrule Warriors CE guide, and the clerk said he couldn't sell me the Bayonetta 2 CE guide.  I asked why and then he started stuttering trying to make up an excuse that he would get in trouble.  Sounds like he just wanted it himself.  Looks like I will be giving his survey my undivided attention.

How much was that? I couldn't find it on GameStop's site to check, and the store I stopped by last night didn't appear to have one, though I could check the other two stores, if the price isn't terrible.

The Bayonetta 2 guide is pennied out at Gamestop, so free basically.

I see. I probably won't make a special trip for it then, as I doubt they'd sell it, and it's likely gone. If I decide to head out that way, I'll take a peek, though.

I snagged a HW guide this morning and they had a Bayonetta 2 guide. The guy didn't even blink. Rang it up as a penny and I was out the door. :) that doesn't usually happen around here.

Was he supposed to sell it to me or not since it's pennied out?

Employees are supposed to pull and trash the penny guides, but they ring up for .01 and ymmv on the employee selling it to you. I grabbed a Bayonetta 2 guide the other day and the employee called the manager over who overrode the price to half off (for the 50% off sale).

I just grabbed a Vita memory card. I'm glad that I remembered this sale before it ended tonight.

I managed to get the Pokemon X and Y guide. And the Complete post-game pokedex. All normally for 40$, but got them at 15$. I was hoping to take advantage of the B2G1 Free, to get the ORAS guide, but the clerk didn't find it and didn't even mention the B2G1 free (that was two days ago; their inventory listing they did have it)

I did a hold through their app today and it turns out they did have it. Bought the ORAS guide today for 10$. All in all a 60$ value for 25$ isn't too bad. The clerk was really cute and he had a nice tattoo, so I just went soft. I have a problem with being assertive ; ~ ;
