#12443337 3 for $10 Xbox 360 or PS3 Games at GameStop

Posted by jbroush99 on 26 January 2015 - 04:48 AM

The Gamestop here had a sign at the door and 2 bins with signs promoting the 3/$10 sale.  Many thanks to sp00ge for posting the list because the store didn't have all the games in the bins.  I asked the manager if the sale started today and he said "yeah, and it ends today too".  Not sure what he meant by that but he did say he couldn't believe the amount of $8-$10 games that were part of the sale.

 

Here's what I grabbed, all PS3:

AC Revelations w/ bonus AC1 on the disc, complete

Dead Space 2 LE w/ bonus Dead Space Extraction on disc, complete

Dishonored in generic case w/ disc and manual

Dynasty Warriors 6 in generic case w/ disc and manual

Ratchet and Clank: All for One, complete

WET generic case, disc only

 

Thanks to OP for the heads up on this one and to sp00ge for the list!

It was a fake ad?

I was considering buying Saints Row IV.  Anyone know where I can find a review of the game?  It's not like it will be very obvious to find because it came out like a year ago.  Any links?

Wow, some kid is really going to miss his 3DS after today!  There was an ad posted for a 3DS for $40 and the ad stated

that it powered up and the wifi worked, it just wouldn't play games.  I checked later and they had lowered the price to $25.

We did a little research at work and figured if the game slot/drive was bad, I could get one for $12 and my coworker

would handle the disassembly and soldering. 

 

I countered with $10 mentioning what it would cost me to fix it and get a charging cord (which wasn't included).  They countered

at $15.  I told them I would take it for $15 if it still had some charge left and I could see that it worked.  Their reply was

"OK, $10".  I was more than happy to set up a time to meet and picked it up.

 

I got back in my car to look at it and the screens were dirty, but not scratched up and the stylus was still in the slot.  I hit

the power button and it fired up!  Nothing great gamewise on it, but it was working.  When I got home, I grabbed a 

game and threw it in.  Unbelievably, it worked without hesitation. 

 

All I need a charger and I have a perfectly working 3DS for $10!!!  She looked pretty ragged so she may have been

looking for a quick buck, but I really don't care now.

At this point I just want those ancient reviews to disappear from the front page.  They make it look like a time warp.

Exactly!  July of 2013 was a little more than a few weeks ago.  That stuff makes the site look piss-poor.
