I was sort of expecting that for a response...I'm pretty much the same. If the B&M sales are good I'll probably head to Braintree, which now has a Target, Kmart, Best Buy, Staples, multiple Gamestops, South Shore Plaza, etc.

Oh so you all come out of the woodwork now :).

I'm in Canton and generally shop around Braintree, Dedham, Brockton, Framingham, and Watertown areas...

BTW there will soon be 4 Gamestops in Braintree...ridiculous ain't it?

I live in the Metrowest area (Natick/Framingham).

Still waiting for a used videogame sale to pop up at Newburry Comics. They have them every once in a while.

Looking for boston area CAGs to help me out - Our school is running a bus down there next weekend and dropping us off at the aquarium. I'm trying to get to fenway for the game that day and was just curious as to how much a cab would be. Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

It'll likely cost about $20. It also depends on traffic/route.

Have you considered taking the T (subway)? It's super easy since you are being dropped off at the Aquarium. The Blue Line is right there, and you get to Government Center stop. Transfer over to the Green Line (no extra cost) and hop on the C or B and get off at Kenmore Station. If it's a Sox game, just follow the hordes of people all heading the same way. That is actually a better way to experience it. Total cost = $2 one way. You can also buy an all day pass for $9 and travel all you want.

Plug in Aquarium Station as the start, and Kenmore Station as the end -- along with the time.

Tell me about it. I really really thought they were at least going to tie it up there at the end yesterday with how strong they were playing in the last few minutes. Alas.

Nice deal...I thought it would have sold out by now. I recently scored two like-new Xbox 360 arcades at that same Microcenter for $30 each.

Yes. I was just browsing the site a few weeks back and saw 2 arcades on clearance. Got in-store pickup and was told they were basically customer returns returned from MSFT. They are like new and were made in 09 and 10, so I'm not as worried about the RROD.

Also got an i7 960 for $200, which is a pretty good price considering I then sold my two year old i7 920 for $185 net.

It might be a one time thing. There are a couple other goodies in that store that I'm waiting for an inevitable markdown on...

The thing is that Microcenter used to do weekly gaming deals but they've stopped it for several months now. They went into effect Friday mornings and usually there were games and accessories on clearance if you checked thier website. I scored a 360 LCD screen for $2, marked down from $200.

Massachusetts kind of jumped out at me as i was browsing the titles of the threads, I would just like to take a couple mins to say I hope and PRAY none of our fellow CAG'S were affected by those tornado's the other day. God Bless You.

Huh. I know microcenter used to have really good deals when the game section launched, but the inventory sorta blows.

There are also a lot of SD'ers that check out the Microcenter, so I'll only head up there if I need a Trader Joes order anyways or if I can reserve an item.

Thanks, it was pretty scary in Boston but nothing really bad happened there. It was much worse in other parts of the state.

Congrats to the Bruins for an amazing post season....every round was epic (Yes even Philly) and it is very well deserved. So any of you going to the parade?
