    Default Starting 4/26 Best Buy has a big $9.99 Game Sale

    I shamelessly ripped this from Cheap Ass Gamer, so thanks to Guildrage over this for sharing this.

    http://www.cheapassgamer.com/forums/...d.php?t=221773

    Starting 4/26 BB has marked down tons of titles at 9.99$. This list includes over 50 titles for 360, PS3, Wii, and DS.

    Stock is YMMV but the list is the same throughout all BB. Its Best Buy, my details are scarce with this. They did not give me much info but its not YMMV as it was said throughout the company.

    Edit: Removed Starting, my resource said all titles at 10$.

    Edit 2: I have no word that they are at risk stock but i assume they will be so they wish to get rid of them at said price. I do work for them

    Edit 3: Ok I have more information for everyone. Below will be the actual list i have pulled and many stores may have started placing stickers on the games (look for a Best Buy logo sticker on the game). The actual date to start to sticker is 4/19 but the sale is 4/26.

    Wow, slim pickings as far as quality titles go. Movie licenses and standard issue sports titles markdowns. Looks to be a lot of kiddie games, especially on the DS. It looks like the 360 has a decent amount of non-crap, so I'll be popping in and picking up a few.

    I skimmed through some of that thread, which currently is over 60 pages- despite the sale has not yet happened. I'd check back sunday and see if anyone there has had luck with it, just to save yourself a wasted trip. There seems to be some argument over wether the sale is going to happen or not.

    Anyway, even though there is a lot of sports/movie tie-in titles, there's still a few quality selections in there.

    I see 3-4 games I'd love to have, at a price is right...I just wonder if the vultures are going to swoop in and scarf them all up before any of the rest of us get a chance.

    Ill be there opening sunday. At those prices you really cant go wrong. In a month or two you can resell them if you didnt care for them and make your money back. The only thing im worried about is them not having the games already. Well see I guess.

    In case anyone forgets a list Sunday, it looks like the games that are going on sale all have a little yellow Best Buy sticker on top of them.

    EDIT: Note to self...fully read first post.

    Got 4 I have been meaning to pick up for awhile, at that price can't wait no more, going before they open sunday to at least assure me of a few decent titles I can find before everyone else comes swooping them up....would like to get 007: QoS, Hellboy, Bourne and SC IV, if they don't have them Pure and DMC4 will do just fine. I'm afraid they won't have anything good but going before they open at least assures me one good title I'm hoping...wish me luck as I stink at getting any good sales on games ever....maybe sunday will be different...we'll see!.

    Will this be available online? There isn't a Best Buy within 100 miles of me.

    If anyone is a trophy whore like me, I combed through the PS3 list, but the only three games with trophies are:
    Blitz 2
    Ferrari Challenge
    007: Quantum of Solace

    I'd like the other sports games if they were current, but sports games become useless after a year unless you don't care about multiplayer.

    My best buy had them out today.

    I got Quantum of Solace Collector's Edition for $9.99
    CC&C 3 Red Alert
    CC&C 3 Kanes Wrath
    Infinite Indiscovery

    They didn't have any SC IV for the 360 or I would have snagged one of them too.

    I might go back for a few others

    I went to my closest BB and they didn't have any copies of Operation Darkness. They did have about six copies of Infinite Undiscovery though so I may pick up a few of those (one to keep, the rest to pay for it).

    Yes, But shipping appears to be $2.99. Still $13 isn't bad for some of these games.

    They're going fast, so get 'em while you can.

    Checked my BB last night and they look to have most all of these ready to go. As I was looking at the stand with these special games on them, two different employees walked up and said "you want to come back tomorrow for these. We're having a big sale". Who knows what will be left when i get back this morning, but I'll be there at 11:00am that's for sure!

    Just got back. Of course everything decent was long gone (and I got there when the store opened), so thanks again price-adjusters!

    if anyone wants to sell a spare soul calibur at a decent price let me know I suppose.

    Just got back from Best Buy. They did have a good number of $10 games left, but none of the ones I was looking for. They did not have Ferrari Challenge or Soul Calibur 4 for PS3. They did have Quantum of Solace but it was NOT marked down.

    If you guys want Rock Band or Rock Revolution though, they probably have a million copies.

    Just got back from the BB in Menomonee Falls, through an online order I placed last Sunday (prices were automatically adjusted when I picked it up) and a healthy selection when the store opened this morning, was able to get the following:



    Was a great way to use up my Christmas gift cards...looking forward to trying these games out.

    Figures that the one damn game I was interested in (Ninja Gaiden DS) wasn't in stock. Ah well, I'm sure I can find it for $10 again down the road...
