You will find games from GameStop.

Of course they won.Gamestop bought out most of the competition

What a joke of a store. Even though I'm going to go buy a game tomorrow at Gamestop, I still hate them.

Go to walmart instead. Don't support this facsist dictatorship which is GS

Panthers4393d ago

I never shop at Gamestop anymore and I never sell my games there.

If you need to sell games, do it on eBay or something. You will make more and the person buying it will spend less.

or go to or any other game swapping site.

Places where I live, Gamestop has to be your go to store for games. They are the only one that has the games on time and in stock.

I hear ya. that's why I always go If I don't mind waiting a couple days I get free two day shipping. If I want the game right away I can pay $4 to have it sent overnight and still spend less than I would at a store. And for bigger games they've been offering free overnight to prime members. It's been well worth the price to have amazon prime. It's been nice to see them offering most pre-orders for $56-57 or occasionally less along w/ $10 off a future game purchase last Fall and it looks to be rolling out again for games this late Summer/Fall [Madden, CoDMW2]... ;)

but yeah, you can't count on Walmart and that place is a dump. I can't speak for all but there's SOO many games they don't get at all or don't get until 3+ weeks out. Shopko is awful rarely even getting a new release until Wed-Fri, and Kmart doesn't even know what's going on (they still want $60 for Kingdom Hearts, when the BLEEP was Kingdom Hearts ever $60!?) and there's no gamestop here (though I doubt I'd go there anyway). I learned my lesson years. Don't bother. Go online, save some change, and be ensured you can get the game you want when you want it... ;)

I go to Play n Trade unless I'm pre-ordering something. They get stuff about a week after it comes out, along with having the biggest N64 library around.
