GameStop's 25% Off Used Game Sale

Player 1: "Man, I gotta catch up. I'm so far behind."

Player 2: "I know. What's up with so many awesome games coming out in the first half of the year? Since when did this start happening?"

Player 1: "I mean, it helps that some of the games are short but with stuff like Final Fantasy XIII and Red Dead Redemption, it was basically impossible to play everything I wanted to play."

Player 2: "I got stuck on Battlefield: Bad Company 2 online. I only took a break for God of War III."

Player 1: "Yeah, well, I'm on my fourth playthrough of Heavy Rain, but now that the DLC isn't coming and there isn't much this summer, I have time to hit the backlog."

Player 2: "With just so much stuff...it's gonna cost a crapload to..."

Player 1: "Well, maybe not so bad...GamerDeals says we can get 25% off on any used game over $19.99 at GameStop."

Player 2: "That's something, anyway. Okay, time to stock up."

Player 1: "Just make sure to take advantage before the end of July..."

Player 2: "Plenty of time."

Dude. Like, that's a totally awesome deal man.

Translation : Dude, you can buy used games from Gamestop at a more realistic price until the end of July.

"sometime you get a nice gift card too."

Can someone give me an example of what you get (in the USA), and how you earn it? I've spent a few hundred quid on Amazon UK and... nothing!

A few times Amazon has given me a $5 credit towards downloading songs. That's about all I've gotten, but I usually don't buy games until they've been out for quite a while, and their promotions have probably expired.

Either one, and buy them new from Amazon instead of handing your money over to the con men at GameStop. Amazon will more than likely have the games new for a similar price to the used ones at GameStop.

Buy GOWIII...highly entertaining, decent wrap to the trilogy, and just 'epic'. Buy Heavy Rain for a dramatic story with mildly good voice acting and interactive QTE's. Basically choose a game that fits your preference and preference of play. If I had to choose between both, GOWIII would be my first choice.

Used games shouldn't be even be allowed to be re-sold, imo. Unless the companies get a share of that.

They both look great. Although God of War 3 performs better in my opinion. Heavy Rain has screen tearing(although minor) God of War 3 does not. With Heavy Rain, some experienced audio skips and some freezing, God of War 3 has no such issues.

I myself didn't have any technical issues with Heavy Rain besides the screen tearing like others did. Any problems it had have been cleared up though with a hefty patch.

They are both fantastic games and well worth the money. I paid full price for both and haven't regretted it. But like Highlander said, they are completely different games and it just depends on what your looking for.

Its not really a question of which on should i get, because you should get both at some point, but rather which should you get first.

Guitar Center does the same thing. They announce "huge savings!" "this and that percentage off!" then you realize that Fender American Standard Deluxe suddenly has an MSRP 200 to 300 dollars higher then it was the week before the sale.

In the end you save little to nothing participating in their "Huge Blowout Sales Events!"

Don't even get me started with Guitar Center. That's why when we've had to get stuff there, we'd frequently check the prices, know the staff, so that when they do have sales we'd get them to take the discounts off of the lower prices they had the day before. Scoundrels.

I also heard Gamestop has a $200 for any PS3. I'm considering to replace my old one with a slim.

The $200 is for the new 250 gb PS3. What model do you have? I can check my work and tell you the trade credit you'll receive, but I'm not sure if it'll be the same since I work at a Canadian GS =S

The $200 GameStop store credit is for all models and with the original accesories (controller, A/V cable, 1 USB cable, working system). If the system is broken (YLOD, won't play discs, etc.), then depending on what model it is, you will get charged a refurbish fee ranging from $40 to $70. I checked into the deal but decided to keep my extra PS3. I'd rather get cash and they will deduct 20% for that. No thanks.

So wait, your telling me that I cannot resell my games?

As for gamestop, as an entity that operates in a fashion no different than person-to-person sales they have every right to resell a game what what ever price point they deem for the value.

In the end the real culprits is not gamestop or individuals that resell their games, but rather the game publishers who are milking gamers with their ridiculous $60 price tags.

EB have some really good sales going on now, i bought a bunch of wii games for 20 bucks each!
i cant believe how expensive nintendo developed games are though!
there not even in HD so why the &^%$ are they the same price as ps3 and 360 games?

here wii games are not the same price as ps3 games normally ps3 games are 110 sometimes 100 depending on who releases them.
if its sony there always 120.
360 and wii games are always 100 no matter who releases them.
