It was fun on PC hundreds of years ago and I imagine it's the same.

Is Ultra worth it at $20? Also, I've heard bad things about Lords of Shadows, but it comes with some good content to boot so should I also be interested in that bundle too?

They don't seem to want to clear this stuff out. Most of these prices are horrible.

Thanks, Derrick1979.

 

Picked up Lords of the Fallen (XBO) scanned $15.99...$12.xx after GCU.  More titles to pile on to my new XBO backlog. :)

 

May have to see about the other titles listed for the XBO, that they have in-stock.

Lords of the Fallen is supposed to be getting a complete edition...that's probably why it's clearanced. Might already be out in Europe...

really wish best buy had a price scanner, employees get so irritated i dont even want to ask most of the time. and half of the time i do they just tell me the price is what is marked. maybe if they did their job it would be marked correctly, but they dont.

Its not the sales associates job to update the prices. To them what is shown should be accurate, not they're fault.

I would just get it cheap if you want it.  Unless more DLC has come out recently all the DLC is super minimal and not worth it.

Son of a bitch, had I seen this before I left my house today I totally would have picked up. Oh well, hopefully it stays that way as I work one block away from my Best Buy.

If sales associates don't update the price tags who does?  The managers do it themselves?  Maybe I'm missing something here.

It's the merchandising team that's supposed to do it.

Key word is "supposed" in that sentence.

 

When they had 10% off XBL cards for 2-3 days in March or April I saw tags from that sale still up 3 weeks later.

I've been periodically checking this thread for Lego Hobbit (XboxOne) but I think all I saw was the PS4 game clearanced. I just checked BB.com and they had it for $13.99/$11.19 w/GCU so went ahead and got it. Figured I'd post this in case anyone else has been looking for the One version.

So they have a merchandising team who changes price tags on racks and sales associates have nothing to do with it?  Is Best Buy still having financial woes?

Well (aside from anything that may have changed more recently) merchandising is responsible for all the tags, all the signage, setting and maintaining displays, whatever other merchandising tasks there are, and assisting with trucks and inventory duties.  Most of them really only work a few hours a week other than on truck days.

 

Sales associates have some minor upkeep responsibilities within their departments but unless it's absolutely dead during a shift they want you focused entirely on dealing with customers.

 

Of course that's all in theory and varies depending on how much each store actually does their jobs.

Cross train sales associates with minor merchandising associates job functions (updating prices) And the store could stay updated more often with more knowledgable sales associates being able to push sale products to foot traffic.

As a BB employee I agree with this statement. Sales team does nothing on their downtime unless their supervisor or manager is watching.

this is amazing to me, i noticed today elder scrolls was still priced at last week's sale prices and none of this weeks prices were up. i guess this merchandising team must not work much.

i know for sure they are not trying to keep employee hours under control. i went in during the week right at opening and they were having a meeting, must have been 25-30 people. then i am shopping and there are like 3 people on the floor and one cashier. i guess it was break time or something.

Whenever I’m at BB and need a price check or to know where its an item it ALWAYS feels like I’m asking a favor of the employee to assist me.

 

IDK , but even Kmart employees assist you better (if you can find one).
