To be honest, CC has been pumping out great game deals especially on new games. I'm still piss at how I didn't get my artbook for Valkyria Chronicles from Gamestop. Right now in the process of b!tching and moaning to gamestop about the artbook.

Valkyria Chronicles for $45 is a great deal. The game is simply amazing, not for everyone but definitely worth playing for those who enjoy strategy rpg.

It's too bad, Circuit City always seemed like they were on the cusp of becoming a true rival with Best Buy. Customer service was always a problem for me whenever I went to a store- they seemed to not care a whole lot and there was always only one register open. Not that BB's service is all that much better but I have left merchandise on the candy rack and left in frustration more often in CC than I have in BB. Maybe with Chapter 11 protection they'll be able to reorganize, retrench, and reinvent themselves into a more customer friendly (and profitable) organization.

i agree, especially with the great deals on video games. I always wait till the week a game come out to see who has the best deal, and it's usually CC.

Prolly due to Obama getting in office. Increasing taxes on a company this large to 60% is going to hurt, allot.

I heard it was Obama's fault that a star in a distant galaxy blew up and killed 13 billion inhabitants of a nearby planet.

Give me a break, Obama is not in office yet you chump, Bush is still president and Obama isn't going to be president Until the 20th of January. Also, Circuit City has been bleeding for ages why do you think they had to shut down 155 stores across the nation? Get your butt-hurt repub ass and your politics off N4G.
