    Default 50% off all Gamecube games at Gamestop

    Today is the deal of the century for Gamecube collectors. 50% off all gamecube games plus and additional 10% off for card holders. I went to my local GS this morning and cleaned them out. Here's some of the titles I snagged:

    Balders Gate: Dark Alliance
    NBA Street Vol 3
    Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2
    Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes
    Zelda Collectors Edition
    Wario World
    DBZ Budokai 2
    Simpsons Hit and Run
    Simpsons Road Rage
    Fifa 03, 06 and 07
    Sonic Heroes
    Shadow the Hedgehog
    Resident Evil 3
    NFS Most Wanted
    NFS Underground 2
    Prince of Persia the Warrior Within
    Dr. Muto
    Crazy Taxi
    Digimon Rumble Arena 2
    Rocket Power Beach Rescue
    Spongebob Creature from the Krusty Crab
    Eternal Darkness
    Army Men RTS
    and many more

    Needless to say I'm happy as a clam right now. I've gotten a lot of the expensive titles out of the way now. Some of the games are incomplete, but at that price I can settle for finding the missing pieces later.

    What luck have you others had with this sale?

    I'm in NYC and I called a store or two to see if this deal applied to the area. I was told it doesn't, but it wouldn't be the first time a store associate got it wrong in that place.

    I'm about to leave the house to go. I have a list of games to grab for resell and another list of games to grab to play.

    60% off total is pretty damn good.

    THANKYOU!!

    @ Doonzmore - I quoted yo over at Racketboy to get the word out over there.


    I made a beeline out the door. Gamestops here honored this! Picked up three GC Exclusives!

    Not sure how long this UNADVERTISED SALE will go on. Only the games and not the hardware have the discount. Gee do you think this is because the new Wiis no longer suppport Gamecube games? Take a wild guess when the tons of white Pelican Gamestop Wii Gamecube controllers go clearanced.

    Yea, it's a one day special for December. New deals each day.

    I missed out on the PS2 deal sadly. I would have racked up then.

    I spent $40 on Time Splitters Future Perfect, Sonic Gems Collection, Spartan Total Warrior, Zelda Twilight Princess, Metroid Prime, Super Mario Sunshine, and Donkey Konga. Not bad when TP is more than half of that total. I wanted Zelda Four Swords too but they didn't have it in stock.

    Too bad all the Gamestops in my area either stopped carrying Cube games or gutted them down to disc only. I guess it doesn't matter, they haven't had anything I didn't already have for a couple of years now.

    Unadvertised Daily Specials?

    Does anyone know of any advance notification?


    I really do not want to make daily runs to Gamestop to find the current Blue Plate Special. I didn't know about the one day deal on PS2 either. Nothing in my EMail from Gamestop either.

    It's PowerUp Rewards members only so keep that in mind.

    This is why I pay the $14.99 a year; when they go crazy on the markdowns, there's profit to be made and games to amass.

    I wanted MGS but I would have had to drive an extra 30 miles to get to a store that carried it. Didn't feel like making the trip.

    I couldn't find MGS: TTS or Star Wars: Jedi Outcast at any of my GS locations but managed to get Mario Party 4-7. They were all complete but they had lots of stores that had them as disc only.

    Sadly all the EBGames around me blow for previous generation nowadays, especially GameCube. Few even have GameCube stock at all beyond perhaps a dozen or so titles.
    Whaddya mean invalid parameters?!

    9,000 gigs of ram and it still can't answer a simple question!

    @ Doonzmore - A BIG THANKYOU for the headsup on the Gamestop Gamecube sale!

    @ Jaruff - Thanks for the Gamestop Calendar link, I'm clicking this every week from now on!

    @ wingzrow - For shame, so many copies of the same games. I hope you are at least playing one each of them.

    I saw no indication of this at my local Gamestop.

    I'll have to ask, because they had a copy of Resident Evil 3 in there that looked pretty sweet...

    This was a one-day deal as part of their countdown to Christmas specials. I'm not sure what the current deal is, I think it's only for Power Up Rewards members (maybe not...but that's where I've seen all the info for these specials so far).

    Don't worry. Now that the non-BC unit is on shelves everywhere, it won't be long at all before they call it a day on GC games and accessories (that's floor space they could sell to Ubisoft!! ). Keep your eyes peeled.
