Massachusetts' Cheap Ass Gamers Topic!

Someone mentioned Best Buy in the Cambridge Galleria Mall not having many cheap games. I can tell you now that the reason for that is because if a game is marked down dirt cheap, the employees will scoop 'em up and sell them on ebay.


I also remembered another place to look for some games~ Newbury Comics (Back Bay, down the street from the Prudental). I haven't been there since Oct. but they had quite a few new and used games with widely varying prices. I remember used copies of Metroid Prime, Dragon Ball Z Budokai, Shinobi, and Way of the Samurai were $11.


Thanks for the info. How did you know that about the Cambridgeside BB employees? I'll have to check Newbury Comics next time I have a meeting at the Pru. Does anyone know anything about the BB at Landmark Center?

One of my friends works at the BB in Cambridge and he usually sells me one of his discounted items.


I went to Newbury Comics today and saw some pretty good deals.
Rez--$20
Freedom Fighters (X-box) $30
Killswitch (X-box) $25
Deus Ex: IW, Star Wars: KOTOR-- $35
Star Fox Adventures: $12
Wrestlemania: Arcade (psone) $4


I also found a store that is near Newbury Comics that sells games. Nothing too great in there but there was a fairly large selection and the prices were generally lower than EB or Gamestops (ex: Contra: Shattered Soldier is $18 as opposed to $28 at Gamestop).

There were some Dreamcast games there but I didn't see the rpices and they didn't look to hot.

Are those only used games at Newbury Comics?

If you're in watertown, your best options are the EB at the arsenal mall (shitty little one though) and the bestbuy across the street. And if the KB toys is still open there, that too.

I usually go to the burlington mall for EB, Funco/Gamestop, CC, KB. I do most of my shopping online now though, 25% off used at EB is usually better than most. Though I think they try and stick you with the cases with more stickers on them and the more scratched up games if you use the coupon (been my experience anyway).

Anyone remember the EB trade-in deal where you could trade in a ps1, 64, etc and get $10 a game? I traded in an old ps1 and a bunch of worthless old ps1 games (crappy ones)... Got a new PS2 for $40.

So we're going back to Target in Marlboro where we got the cheap Ape Escape 2 last Friday. If they're still there I'll be getting a few more.
