Please tell me people aren't playing the reprice game here. I'd like to be able to at least find a copy of "Astro Boy" and "Paper Mario" tomorrow.

Were they already marked down?

Also I just checked and someone put up the list on the IGN Xbox General Board. They found it from the DVD tak forum.

No they weren't marked down yet, but I should add they were I think the last copies of each.

far as i can see thats the best way to get what you want ^^

of course theres not even a gurantee that there is a copy of either game at stores near you anyways ^^

Well, I'm a little mad because I found the games "in stock" at my local Best Buy earlier this morning. Now, they say "unavailable". Crap, now I have to wait an extra day to have Radiata Stories.:(

Well, I'll just have to see what happens when I call a family member while they are at Best Buy, since I'm at college right now.:(

I hate living in Naperville... there's never anything at stores. So anyway, does anyone know if their Best Buy has Growlanser Generations, Y's: The Ark of Napishtim, or Final Fantasy Origins? I checked the BB site and I would apparently have no luck at my stores. So, if anyone's feeling generous and wouldn't mind hooking me up, PM me.

edit: I also need to find Paper Mario somewhere.

Just went to two different best buys to scope out all the games for tomorrow, I found 1 dam game at both stores, and that was the eye toy...... The games i checked for were
Paper mario
Disneys Tarzan
Excitebike Classic
Tony hawks Undergorund GBA
Eye Toy
Future Tactics
Growlanser Generation- Both said they no longer will carry this game.. wtf?
Kill Switch
Namco Museum
Narc PS2
Nicktoons movin PS2
Pinball Hall of Fame PS2
Rocky PS2
Scooby Doo Mystery Mayhem Ps2
Sega Superstars PS2
Silent Hill 4 PS2
Y's: The Ark of Naphistam PS2
Catwoman Xbox
Crash Nitro Cart Xbox
Star Wars Starfighter Xbox
Yager Xbox

Not one of those was in stock at either store besides the eyetoy, so would it be better if I just order all my shit off the online store and get the money back when I get it in the mail?

are you certain they'll let you do that? my BB's are pretty much assholes about pricematching with their website...they swear that their site and b&m are two completely different stores


Then UI'll just return it and then buy it again.......duh

So this all happens tomorrow? (Monday) Well i just called one of the best buys near me and i asked about the sale and she had no clue what i was talking about and said i must have the wrong store and such, so i guess after my class tomorrow i'll be stopping into best buy and with high hopes see if this sale is for real.

I might actually do next day shipping... it will come to $15 per game, which is still a hell of a deal for Growlanser and Ys.

I got just got the email myself telling me they aren't available... free ground shipping can blow me, though. I'm going to call them, cancel the order, then place a new order for Growlanser and Ys shipped next day. This way, if the website changes tommorrow, my order is already sent and I can just get them to price adjust it over the phone.

If they don't update it, I will take it to Best Buy B&M to see if they will price adjust it. If they don't, I will then see if I can return / rebuy it, and if everything fails I will just straight up return them for all my money back.


I'm doing the exact same thing

I was going to have the one by Jefferson Pointe checked for me, since it's 10 minutes closer to me compared to Northcrest. I do see the game "in stock", at both stores currently. If they aren't there tomarrow, I'll just have the ad taken to somewhere else, like Meijer (if they get the game in on Tuesday).

the eyetoy is horrible it hardly recognizes the movements


Not true. My Eyetoy works great. Sometimes it's a bit off, but for the most part it works wonderuflly and is a great party item.

Bah.. I just called our closest Best Buy and asked if they knew anything about the sale, and they didn't. But then again, I've had problems with this Best Buy's employees not knowing about stuff in the past. Is this sale for sure taking place in every Best Buy? I don't want to drive a half hour on the highway for nothing, especially since my car might not even make it that far.. :(

calling and asking about the sale is not going to work very well.

1) bb employees may have been told not to say anything
2) bb employees may not even KNOW about it..

I think I'll do a better summarization of the code of conduct of sales.

*clears throat* Just Don't Call Period!

So basically my only way of knowing for sure is to actually be there tomorrow? Because I just wish there was some way of knowing for absolutely sure, so I could give someone else my shift tomorrow, have the day off, and get there right away in the morning.

Too bad the only one near me has the worst gaming selection I have ever seen. KMart has better choices.

So yet again I miss out.

Fuck you BB, Fuck you.


I love this post...
