The b1g2 free that just ended last week on clearance pokemon and collectibles was better IMO. Yes there are sets that weren't on clearance that this covers and the b1g2 did not but I was able to clean up over the weekend getting 3 mega garchomp/salamence ex premium collections, elite trainer boxes, etc for the price of one.

Unfortunately only things I got from that were 2 SM1 Elite Trainer Boxes with a Link Nendoroid. None of my local stores even had 3 clearanced Pokemon boxes.

 

but let's be real here, this is a great chance to pick up some tins (Tapu Bulu comes to mind) and some Guardians Rising packs.

Can I buy a PS4 w the $50 gc, than immediately use that $50 gc to buy another PS4 + $50 gc, than immediately use the $50 gc to get the $39 controller?

Decent ad
I’ll waste all my GameStop money on the games I was going to buy elsewhere

I’ll pay the extra $5 for dragon ball

So happy the add finally dropped. Looks like everyone is offering the $189 Xbox one s this year. Kohl's or target offer gift cards is well with the $189 Console. It's a better deal if you don't have gamestop credit.

Great deals on new games as well. Definitely didn't disappoint. I'll be stopping in for sure. I know they are open at 4pm 11-23 but I wonder how late they are open? I'll have to call.

It should be removed in the official ad.

Yes, you can - unless they have some restriction of one console per person or something

I'm in for a PS4 Pro. I just wonder if they'll still be available on Friday... Or online at least

Any idea how much you have to spend online to get free shipping on BF at Gamestop?

I think it was $25 in years past? Not sure. I don't remember it being an issue and I try to avoid getting charged for shipping at all costs.

From the way the ad reads, I don’t think the Pokémon stuff counts for the 25% off bag. It says discounted items on this two pages.

Anybody ever played with one of those GAEMS units? That’s a hell of a deal on that - $150 off...

Check the specs.  It's 720p.

GameStop's actually WINNING on price on some stuff? $25 ​Shadow of War​ is a winner, though maybe that's related to their exclusive Mithril Edition partnership? Still, WB Games' lootcrates and DLC nonsense mean I'm not volunteering my money for a new copy. If they put the used version at a similar price, MAYBE I'll consider it, but this year has absolutely fatigued me on the microtransaction trend in games. At this point, I just want to throw up a middle finger and skip everything that brings it to the table.

Likewise I will probably look at Nier Atomata, though as Wal-Mart has Nioh for $19 I might just get that one instead and keep waiting on Nier. 

Get Nioh and thank me later.

 

 

Anyway, only thing I see here that I'm interested in that I don't already have or is the same price or cheaper elsewhere is Outcast: Second Contact for $20. Haven't seen that in any of the other ads unless I overlooked it.

You could argue that Pokemon Cards fall under the umbrella of "toys," not to mention the pokemon tin in front of the bag in the image.

 

Bag aside, B2G1 on single boosters is the cheapest way to get Guardians Rising on outside of buying a box and $10 tins are borderline theft so I'm still happy with the ad.

Played Shadow of War for 60 hours. Never bought anything and didn't use the stuff from the preorder code. Had a fucking blast. Even better than the original (which was one of my favorite games on this generation).

Is it my imagination, or did pro members have B2G1 access earlier than advertised last year?

It did happen, just not sure it was for black friday.

My issue is not with whether or not I can get through without a purchase. I know I can. Like I said, it's now just an act of principle. I went and got every Achievement in the base Mordor​ game on XB1, then got the Platinum Trophy and all DLC Trophies on the PS$ GotY release when I got my PS4 Pro. I loved the game and considered it the only new game of 2017 I actually wanted. However, I absolutely abhor this lootbox trend in gaming, and I'm willing to skip a game over it to punish the publish for the decision.

 

I'm certain that would have a blast with the game, and end up an overpowered monster like the first one because I spent so much time just freely roaming and savaging enemies. I'm just pissed WB Games had to go and soil its new IP with this EA-like crap. I just hope we get a Dying Light​sequel, and that it's free of this feces.

I wonder what they'll replace the Powerpass with. 

Powerpass Pro/Elite

You are correct, Wednesday was B2G1 for pro members only. But that was announced a lot I believe, so it’s unlikely we will get it again this year.... here’s hoping though!

They are winning with the PS4. $199 and a $50 gift card

The 1TB variant no less! Sony is killing it with these discounts. I guess they're serious about winning this generation. Not so much with Microsoft and the deals for the Xbone S. With Walmart selling the Xbone S with Battlefield 1 for $200 all year long, these $190 S units with no game are basically not even discounted.

Seriously - $149 effective for a TB PS4 - didn't expect to see that this year and won't fight it.

Seriously, the console "war" between PS4 and Xbox One ended a while ago.

At this point it’s like the 360/PS3 again by the end of last gen. Ps3 has amassed a ton of exclusives and Sony was back in the lead at that point when MS tripped up with Kinect. You won’t go wrong with either anymore.

Can’t wait for that $14 injustice 2 and $29 Persona 5!

FINALLY a sale for Yakuza 0!

Wario64 has a couple pages still up as of right now.

It's a great game - I strongly recommend it to anybody who enjoys beat em ups and crime dramas
