PS2 sale
« on: August 14, 2015, 11:49:51 PM »
If anyone is looking to add to their ps2 collection gamestop is selling of ps2 games at 75% off. I've only purchased from their website and not in a store so I don't know if the discount applies in store. The selection online changes quick, I think when I checked out about half a dozen games were no longer available (I browsed for about an hour) but it looks like they're adding games almost as quickly.

I will stop by today on my way home from work and confirm if the sale is in the brick and mortar.

If  yours is anything like mine there's probably not even a stock of ps2 games available. Mine barely carries Wii games anymore

You are right. No PS2 games and no PSP games. I saw PSP sale online and was hoping for a few of those. The most primitive games Gamestop presently is carrying are the DS games.

must have culled old stock from the stores to discount online. I'll have to look into that psp sale, there's a lot of great titles out for it.

When GS does the bogo type of sales If you have multiples the online store doesn't discount correctly, it only picks up the lowest. That's fine for two items in a buy one get one or four items in a buy two get two but when you have 8 items in a buy two get two scenario it discounts the four lowest items. if four items are $10 and four are $5, instead of getting two of the $10 items free and two of $5 items free you get four of the $5 items free. This has to be on purpose. I saved $60 by splitting everything into four different orders on the psp sale. I think I purchased one of every arcade compilation, rpg, and tactics games available.

It's different in the stores. I'm all the time buying old stuff when they roll out the buy two get one frees and I've never seen the stores pull the same trick, it's only ever online. I've even tried putting items in my cart by price level highest to lowest and it still applies the discount to the lowest of items.
