Good deal considering a few months ago this went for $17.99 used and new copies go for $19.99.

Use the PPLAY 15 and Saver coupons and get it for $11.04 with free shipping. Or use the AFF25 coupon and get it for $9.84.

Good point...you have to watch out with getting "good deals" on used games from those places sometimes.

I didn't think about that, but for some that want it, this probably as cheap as it gets. Also, it probably will not have original packaging or instructions, cause I've ordered 5 PSOne games within the last 2 weeks from them and only got the disc. Also, if all their PSOne games are like the ones I got, they're pretty scratched up.

you can exchange games that you bought from ebgames.com at the b&m stores now. therefore, you can probably find one with case and manual (and check out the condition in person). :) this deal looks pretty good to me! if i didn't have it already, i'd do it. thanks!

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

You can get it new for $14.99 at all the Best Buys around here. And that WILL have instructions and original packaging.

we personally don't deal with ebgames.com at all except with preorders. It must only be your EB, probably a special employee that hooks you up. From my understanding, if you have a defective one, you have to send it back to ebgames.com, not B & M. I am just telling you this is the way My District (northern florida, part of SC, part of GA) works.

Then why does it say on the back of the order form that you can exchange or return the defective game at ebgames store? It even says it on the ebgames.com web site.

i dunno? i just called customer service about 2 days ago and he said i could exchange it at any b&m store (for the same item).

I haven't been informed otherwise at my location and other stores in my area. The only thing that they have told us is that we now can have people preorder their games online and pick up in store. I would still label this as YMMV.

Then why is it included in their return policy?

Eventually someone is going to come to into your store and ask about it.
