SHC-Gamer, will the PS3 Aliens Vs Predator be showing up online?

Only the 360 and PC version are coming up currently.

Are you aware that your comment makes no sense? Unless you mean it as an honest compliment...??

A pennied guide isn't really priced at a penny. That's just a system update to signify to non-brain-dead cashiers (of which there are thankfully few) that the item in question was supposed to be pulled off the floor. It's a safety net. In actuality, all of these guides are supposed to be pulled before we ever get to see them at a penny.

So if the stores are pulling them in advance....they are doing the right thing.

Not sure I'd call it "genius", though, as they are simply doing their job. :roll:


Zippon, I think you totally missed shoe's point. Sounded like "genius" was used as sarcasm in shoe's post.

Thanks for the clarification. Odd that they would be pulled with no change in price.



Just checked the Halo Wars guide. They were there as of Sunday 2/14/10 and as of 2/19/10 all gone. Asked a clerk I know at my preferred BB and he told me they are starting to pull guides before they drop to a 0.01. Also told me they had shipped back all the Halo Wars guides that Friday morning.

Also gone TMNT Smash Up and Brutal Legend.

He was cool enough to look up the Halo Wars guide on their local system (not their local internet, used the gray system to look up the guide. lox or frosty prob know what I'm talking about) and showed me that it was still 19.99 scan price but all the other BBs close to me showed zero inventory.

Hopefully this not a permanent crack down....
