Your CAG cred has definitely risen. Thanks for the heads up, it made it possible for me to get LOTR and Hitman. If you can make this a regular monthly thing it's pretty obvious that we would all appreciate it very much. Thanks again!


Agreed, my props to you as well. It looks like my local BB is starting to pull guides so the extra advance notice was very helpful for pre-drop stashing.

Darn it ! I didn't know Godfather guide is penny.

Its only the non-Xbox360 one. If it says "XBOX360" on the top, then its not a penny yet.

Zelda Four Swords

3.96
Metroid Prime 2 Echoes
Paper Mario Thousand Year Door

5.96

FYI Enchanted Arms guide is $9.99 at best buy. Not a penny but at least its a decent price compared to $15-20 for a guide.

No, just the Zelda 4 Swords Players Choice guide is.

Saw the Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion guide pennied out at the FYE in Triangle Town Center in Raleigh, but the cashier wouldn't sell it to me.:cry:

How does this thread get down to page four? Jeez.

I waited 10 minutes at the register at a Best Buy trying to get the World of Warcraft Atlas. The cashier got all upset because it rung up as a penny, I played dumb, since she was muttering about how they're not supposed to sell stuff that rings up as a penny.

She gets someone from media, who gets someone from games, and finally they all decide to sell it for $10. I had made something up about thinking it was $20 when I realized I might not get it for a penny, so I had an excuse not to get it if they tried to make me pay $30. When she sells it for $10, she was like "well, you got a better deal than you expected!" and I was like "haha yeah.. bitch."

Still, I have two now.. still looking for a 3-4 guide trade for them, or perhaps a good PayPal offer.

Stopped at a GameStop and picked up 3x Suikoden Tactics, 2x Suikoden IV, and 3x Resident Evil: Outbreak File #2 guides.. the Tactics and RE guides are all sealed, but I have others that aren't, so I think they might be sealed by the store. Regardless, all will be added to my list shortly.

Usually, when they penny one guide, there are more. I wonder if Xmen Legends II finally dropped to .01 there, not that my local GS people would even let me buy ONE or even gimme one.

I've got a feeling though, that Oblivion is going to penny at BB SOON, since it dropped to the $9.99 discounted price that guides USUALLY drop to prior to pennying.

Then again, some guides have been at that $9.99 price for what seems like forever at BB and just WON'T drop.


I don't think X-Men Legends II is pennied. I know we have one at my store but the only labels that printed out in the price change were for our Gran Turismo 4 guides. They've been pennying out 1-2 guides at a time at a much more frequent rate recently, as opposed to 8-10 every couple months.

I managed to grab a pennied Four Swords guide tonight, so thanks to whoever was the OP on that.

The cashier just said "That guide is actually a penny!"
I just smiled and said, "Yeah, I know :)"

The store had FFXI Atlases a few months ago, but could not find any now. Major :cry:

I was also buying something else. That always makes it easier. I'm not ballsy enough to JUST take a .01 guide to the counter.

Well, I AM!!! The same GS I finally snagged a 4 Swords from last night(while buying MGS 2 and State Of Emergency, which I hated when I paid full price for it) also had a couple others I think, but I had those already.

Also, when I was at a GS later last night, I noticed theres a 'new and expanded' Oblivion guide out on their shelves, maybe this means the 'old' one IS PENNIED???

It's worth a shot. If anyone can confirm or deny it possibly being pennied, let the rest of CAG know(and credit me dammit lol).

EDIT: The reason I was at a GS later in the night was that the clerk gave me the DEMO version of MGS 2(which caused a DRE on my buddies brothers PS2) and I had to go get the non-CD version.

I added a WIKI page for the strategy guide section. This way we can have a list in one section vs accross several posts for the most up to date list for us all. I will refilter them back into latestest drops and master list of this post as time permits. Thank you all for all your contributions to the WIKI and this thread,

The OP has not been updated since July... Does anyone know of a list/post that can catch me up to the past few months of drops? I don't have the time to look back through all the pages so if anyone could help out if they already know, I'd be very grateful.

It's not. It's just a revision of the current guide. Same sku.
