I was out at my local 5 Below yesterday and saw that they are now selling these. I guess that apparently they didn't sell real well at $4 each so now they are going to try and sell them for $5 each. Sounds like a bargain. :wink 2:

They went down to $2 at some point while burger king was still selling them. They were selling for $7 used at gamestop at the same time...

They sold over three million copies during the original promotion (I think the actual number is something like 3.2 million before they dropped the price to a buck a piece). I'd say it was pretty successful.

I'd buy them for a buck,just for the replacement cases...


There's a Rest stop on the highway that still had the BK Standee Up for the old promotion..

Sneak King, Big Bumpin', Penny Racers I believe. I just sold an extra sealed set for $10 this weekend at a garage sale.

These, in fact, did sell quite well for the time but they are hardly worth $2 today. They really aren't as bad as people make them out to be, but, still, they are far from being AAA titles. You'll usually get a little more enjoyment out of Pocketbike Racer and Big Bumpin' because of the multiplayer and pick-up-and-play nature of the titles.

I believe the racing game was PocketBike Racer.

I say Sneak King is worth it just for how batshit insane of an idea it is. You're the Burger King, and you have to sneak around and give people food in a variety of ways.

if you like to get achievements, these games are always a way to bump up the score a little bit. For a couple bucks, I think they are worth a shot.

How many points do they have? 200 like an XBLA game or 1000 like a typical disc game?

I've got all three, I tried them in my original xbox but haven't tried them since getting my 360.

Pocketbike Racer was a decent game, it's not really a "real" racing game, more like Mario Kart with those little bikes.

Sneak King, as was pointed out, is worth checking out just for the WTF factor. The actual gameplay isn't all that hot though.

Big Bumpin was terrible IMO, the control was really sloppy.

I wanted to get a copy of these when they were out but there's no Burger King nearby. I don't suppose anyone feels like picking up copies for me for a price? ;)

200 a pop. Some of the achievements are actually pretty hard. Not easy/fast 200g games by any means (though pocketbike racers is the easier of the three).

If you have a GameStop nearby, I know they are desparately trying to get rid of them for around $2-3.

No gamestops in Canada, alas. At least not around here.

i havent seen any of these in either of my local gamestops (gotta love how they build two within a 5 mile radius of each other) but ill take another look.

I find these things in thrift stores marked up to $7 sometimes. They obviously don't have a clue what they are. They also mark up those Jampacks for the PS2 that used to be sold at Best Buy for $4.95 up to $10. They usually only have little old ladies marking things in the stores I go to, and if it involves technology, they don't have a clue on how much to charge, or even what the hell the object they're pricing is. Which can work out in a lot of ways in my favor. :)

Our local stores have theirs in the cardboard displays they have in the middle of the floor for games $15 or less that they really want to get rid of.
