Signs still said 35% off but prices rang up at 50% off.

Also, many prices on stickers are wrong - eg. Iron Storm was stickered at $13 - price check said it was now $6 - Paid $3.

Edit
- Title edit
- These deals are at Brick and Mortar - I don't know about online.
- At my store, only the first item rang up at 70% off today (11/22), so the friendly clerk offered to ring up my four items in four separate transactions.

Edit 2
- Checked at two stores today, and both said sale ended.


Edit 3
- YMMV, but wankerjr reports 70% off is still possible (See below)

I saw this Thursday at EB. I should of asked about the copy of Madden 2005 that was on the shelf. It had a $24.99 sticker on it but it had been covered by a magic marker. I guess I'll check it out today.

I did pick up a new copy of Colin Mcrae Rally 2005 for $19.99.

Wow. I might have to go check out the rack in our store. They always seem to have a ton of pre-played PC games crammed into a rack made for half the number of boxes they have in it.

I picked up Republic, Armed and Dangerous and Max Payne 2 for a total of $5 and change.

There were a number of $17.99 games that were very appealing - I wonder if any of them were mislabelled.

I just got back and picked up the following:

Age of Mythology - Box Label 17.99 - Rang up 14.99 - 75% Dis = 3.75

Stronghold Crusaders - Box Label 9.99 - Rang up 7.99 - 75% Dis = 2.00

Spiderman - Box Label 3.95 - Rang up 3.95 - 75% Dis = .99

Max Payne 2 - Box Label 17.99 - Rang up 7.99 - 75% Dis = 2.00

This rocks.  The guy at the store was pretty cool and also said they have hundreds of other titles in the back and just no room to put them out front.  He offered to look up anything I was interested in but of as normal my mind went completely blank.  :roll:

He said to maybe check the web site and then give him a call and he would check on them for me.

I also had them ring up Star Wars KOTOR but it still came up 17.99 and also had him check Blitzkreig ?????? that came up 17.99.  I passed on those but saw some you guys listed here that I need to call and check on LOL

I am a delayed game purchase whore.  While everyone is buying the stuff coming out this year I am pick up last year stuff for penny's on the dollar.

This is crazy.  Between two different stores, I got -
Max Payne
MDK 2
Wizardry Gold
Republic : The Revolution
Ghost Master
Armed & Dangerous
Enter The Matrix
Jurassic Park : Operation Genesis
RollerCoaster Tycoon 2
Asteroids
Enclave
BG : Tales of The Sword Coast
Star Wars Monopoly
Alice
Empire of Magic
Homeworld
Return to Castle Wolfenstein

for $26  :shock:
Thanks for the heads up on this.  I don't go to EB that enough, so I probably would have missed it.  According to the signs, the deal is good through Saturday the 27th.

They also have UT2003 (not 2004), which I think is pretty good for those that never got it, and don't have the cash for 2004.

I went. The only game they had that wasn't supposed to be 100% suck was Soldier of Fortune 2 for $7.99

The rest was all trash.

Anyone know when this deal is over?  I found Unreal 2 + Robin Hood Defender of the Crown for $5.62 when I was on vacation.  If it's still going next week then I am going to check out the stores around town.

The sign at the store said it went through November 27, but that might not necessarily be for all stores.

I can confirm that the sale is dead in the Greenville, SC area. Not sure if its dead in all markets, but I think it likely is.

Let's hope that they bring it back before the end of the Christmas season. smile

I checked in the POS system last night and at least according to promotions the deal is 70% off PO-PC games until 12/31/04. I haven't tried it yet but that's what it says. Just have them go into Email, Promotions, Pre-Played and it should be listed there.

Did anyone check this and confirm it?  Is it back to 70% off for under $15?

Back on? Not as far as I can see. Made a purchase at one EB store with no discount > 14.99 game  and I talked to another employee in another EB store who told me the DEAL IS OFF.

I wish it were still on  :cry:
