Oh, well, if you say so then it must be true.

Wouldn't be too surprising. I mean, at the end of the day, it's a box with a fake cart... not a great value. Only made for suckers like me. I think it was pretty similar with the Seven Sirens, they had a ton left and that one was more appealing since it was a new/unreleased game and a bigger nostalgia factor seeing it for the first time.
Nostalgia is expensive, suckers are cheap.

Well, as February comes to a close, time to post my pick-ups and arrivals from February.
A bit more than I thought I'd end up with, especially after I told myself to slow down after January, so this time, I really will slow down in March...or try my best to...

There used to be a couple of good ones towards Pittsburg/Antioch, but they both closed down recently, so now it's mostly just Phoenix Games in this area for retro gaming needs.
You can also try Half Price Books in Concord, as they will have some retro games. While the selection isn't huge, but there may be a thing here and there that might be of interest.
If you want some recommendations for a Japan hobby/figures shop, you can Toyslogic in Concord as well, and have a decent selection, albeit, not a typical storefront, and the set-up is similar to like shopping at a very large store front at a convention, but with larger stock of things. Kind of neat if you're interested in that stuff.

Does anyone know how New converted to pre-owned works? I'm guessing they need to actually apply the pre owned sticker since New/pre-owned should have different SKUs and pricing? Asking because yesterday I saw KH III deluxe edition new for $60 or whatever. I asked if it was new and not pre-owned because I just bought a "pre-owned" one for $15. She said yeah it's new and I just let it be because I felt like even if she scanned it it would still show up as new.
Although I bought a PS4 one and this was XBONE so not sure of both were converted to pre-owned. Would kinda suck if I missed out on a deal cause they didn't get the memo from corporate.
It will be tagged as pre-owned.
Gamestop gets a list everyday of price changes, and employees are supposed to go through and adjust them as such. Depending on your store, and if the employees are lazy or not, this may impact whether or not you are seeing converted games as often or not.
Both new and pre-owned skus can be active at same time, but whether or not corporate tells them to convert new copies to pre-owned will be up to each store to make sure it's done.
