Everyone should go to the parade! I would give (almost) anything to go up there! Can't wait to get back up there in September.

If anyone's looking for target clearance items, let me know and maybe we can set up trades. Or if you're looking to buy straight up, let me know what you're looking for. I only ask a few bucks (and tax) more than what i can find it for (for gas).

Best Buy at Back Bay Boston and Wareham MA are closing as of May 12. I stopped by the Back Bay location this week and the majority of games (inlcuding new releases like Witcher 2) are 10-20% off. Not sure what sort of better deals are coming, but I'll be visiting the store frequently to keep sales updated.

If anyone is looking for ME3 collectors edition, the Best Buy in Marlborough MA has a PC one and a PS3 one out on the floor. No 360 though. They also have a copy of the Witcher 2: Dark Edition but it was all fucked up with the spider wrap.

Anyone dying to get a hold of Mortal Kombat for the Vita before the release should head over to Best Buy on route 9 in Framingham, MA. I was just there and the had a few copies out on the floor. Someone messed up I guess, cause I'm pretty sure 5/1 is the release date.

This is a week or so old, but I just discovered this thread (and laughed when I saw the OP was from 2004). Anyway, the Newbury Comics in Attleboro, MA is moving to the Emerald Square mall, so they are clearing out a lot of stock. I haven't checked it out myself yet, but the promo is 50% of all toys and games (I think this might only be board games, but I'm not entirely sure), and 20% off everything else. Either way, at least 20% off is pretty decent, and most stores usually have a good selection.

hey I'm new to the area (live right around Boston) and was looking for places with retro (psx and earlier) games. Anyone have suggestions?

Is ther place locally in MA where I can sell or trade my old retro systems. I have no more for any more consoles. All I use is my XBOX and PS3 and recently got a WiiU Basic which is still in the box.

I'm not super familiar with the shops in the state, but I'd definitely take them off your hands for a good price. Send me a PM if interested.

I'd be interested in an SNES myself.

For places to sell games though, in Salem NH there's a relatively new store called Core Gaming, they take in all kinds of stuff and they're pretty good with pricing. They have a Facebook page so you can post on their wall and they may be able to ball park what some stuff is worth.

The Best Buy in Everett, MA is offering an additional 50% off all clearance games. There are naturally a lot of Guitar/DJ Hero's and such, but there were some good titles, too: personally picked up Child of Eden for $8.99 on PS3 and Samurai Warriors Chronicles for $4.99 on 3DS. Might be worth a look if anyone's near that area.

Deval is also trying to push a federal internet tax for all of the USA for all online sales. How greedy can they be?!? It is our fault it's so much cheaper online that going into a crappy over priced best buy!!!!

I'm looking to sell my old school video game systems. Are there any stores that will give me good prices for my systems?

That's Entertainment in Worcester and I believe there's one in Fitchburg sells and buys old school games. One of my favorite stores. They offer more if you take store credit though, worth checking out.

Are there any CAG's in the Springfield/Holyoke area that will be heading out to Target in the morning to try to score a Rosalina?? I am going to be there and was looking to meet up with any CAG's so we could team up in the future.

Friend of mine in CN saw this posting for a boxed TurboGrafx 16 on Craigslist that has stayed unsold for over 10 days if anyone is interested.
