I hate to burst your bubble here (well, not really) but HPB does sell stuff online through the Amazon marketplace and through their own website.


They don't sell anything of their own on their own site. Other sellers sell stuff through hpb, just like private sellers on amazon.

The feasibility behind what you've suggested re: shipping everything together has been discussed in the past, and it's not really feasible. Think it through or search the thread for that particular discussion.


having worked for a massive retailer that ships with great success, you're full of crap. it would make much more financial sense to ship items in bulk, even if there was a 2 or 3 day delay. every store picks their online orders and puts them in a big box, ships them to a central facility, and ship in bulk to customers from one location. obviously you only do this when someone orders multiple items. there is absolutely no reason to ship 5 games in 5 shipments in 5 envelopes, other than management incompetence. you could even pre-ship multiple copies of popular items to that central facility, knowing that they will sell quickly, while maintaining a reasonable inventory in store.

Did you notice all the rare games some people in this thread got in on? They couldn't have had more than a handful of these


I don't think they're holding back items but they are definitely removing items from the promotion. All of the .hack games are no longer listed on the page. Yes, they are sold out right now, but so are hundreds of other games that are part of the promo.

fail on batman arkham city game of the year :[


Fail on a bunch of games. Street Fighter Arcade edition is $29.99 new, $33.99 used. Even with 33% off, it's $22.78. That's right at Amazon's regular used price. King of Fighter 12: $44.99? Really? It's under $10 on Amazon.

For PS2's, wait for a Half Price Books coupon. oXbox and PS2 were $18 with cables and one controller during the last 50% sale.
