If you've been waiting for a price drop here's a huge one if you don't mind not having the case. Picked this up a couple hours ago. They had both PS4 and Xbox versions.

It's not YMMV.  The only iffy part is if your redbox has stock or if you town has redboxes.  And there is a current thread on those $4.99 redbox games that dropped off the front page.  I also think Cheapy posted a similar thread also.

Well, yeah that's what i meant but YMMV is a lot easier to type in the header.  

 

I never saw that Redbox thread. thanks.

There's a small button on the bottom right of the screen that says  "buy" and it'll have a price attached. Just click on it and swipe your card.

They're not all set up to sell games. The three closest to me don't do it but thankfully there are others not too far away that do.

Thanks for the heads up OP!

But yeah only certain kiosks sell games. I've been to several Wal-Marts in different states and none of them have sold any games. Just a heads up.

I wonder what happens to the games that don't sell do they eventually drop to $1.99 then after that they shred them or something?

I've got quite the backlog of games, but know I will playing this. So picked it up last week at a Redbox near me. Normally don't buy games without the original manual, inserts,etc. But for 5 bucks, couldn't pass it up.

In my neck of the woods (Tennessee), the only Redboxes that sell games are attached to Walgreens, CVS, Dollar General, Publix, and Food City.

It being in stock or your town even having Redbox makes this extremely YMMV lol

With Black Friday around the corner, I'm going to wait and see if there's sales on this game. I hate not having the case, art work etc. Thanks for the heads up though.

So most every deal on the site is ymmv then, no?
My town doesn't have a Best Buy or Target in it, so posters need to please start labeling all Best Buy and Target deals as YMMV.



Looks like Base GS TiV on PS4 copies is $8. I don't do any flipping of games, or buying games at GS either for that matter, so I don't have PUR. I see a handful of copies for PS4 available to buy near me but I don't know if it's the right "intro" flip for me, after driving around to get them and then removing the stickers. I'd like to have an Xbone copy for myself at that price but no case breaks the deal for me, because I don't think the GS stores near me would hook me up with the case and buying/returning-sans-case a copy from the store seems like too much work. I still haven't played my copy of DSII though, so I'm in no rush to get III.

Bought one for my brother-in-law, who just got an XO and has never heard of a Souls game. If he manages to ever get past Iudex Gundyr I'll be impressed  :twisted:

ah, just summon help.  You can do it offline if you kill a certain NPC IIRC (avoiding a spoiler) or of course, if you're online, you can summon help that way too. 

 

I think I solo'ed him once (I capped myself at SL100, ) with a dex/dark sword build but it was pretty tough as he has a very long reach.  The rest of the times (2 times more for the plat), I summoned that NPC.

I have traded in the living hell out of NBA2K17 (Xbox 360), Madden NFL 17 (Xbox 360) and WWE2K17 (Xbox 360) to Lamestop and Best Buy. Each game is $5.00 at Redbox and flips for around $15 each at either store. Probably banked $250.00 + in credit profits doing this (was told by Gamestop on my 20 + trade in that I had exceeded my trade in limit, enjoy my trash Gamestop you bunch of dickwads).

:roll: So the company is a dickwad for giving you a trade-in value that is 200% over the cost of the games you bought ... okay.

Can you use a redbox gift card to purchase games?
