Toe Jam and Earl 3 has dropped to $12.50 on Target clearance. If anyone can pick one up for me, I'd appreciate it.

I'll take a gander and see if I can find it for you James. I'm debating picking up Gunvalkyrie for that price as well.

Edit: Added Nightcaster and Minority Report for the Xbox and Dave Mirra 2 for the GC. Also, Eternal Darkness and Sum of all Fears for the GC have been added.

Added a few new deals to the price drops.

Robotech for the Xbox is down to $7.99
The collectors edition is down to $9.99
Also at $9.99 are Gunvalkyrie and Aggressive Inline for the Xbox.
Deathrow and NFL Fever 2003 have hit the $14.99 price point
As have Onimusha 2 and V-Rally 3 for the PS2.

All of these deals are at EBgames.com. The B&M stores may be honoring these prices as well.

Hope you find something you like.

Thanks Glen. Yep, it's definitely a bit of a slow time right now, but there are some good price drops on older games.

Thanks, I had $40 in MSN Holiday $ I had to use, so this was the thing.

For $46 shipped at EBworld.com I picked up:

Gunvalkyrie
Aggressive Inline
Robotech Collector's set

Used- Sega GT/Jet Set RF

Not bad.

I picked up the collector's edition of Robotech and GunValkyrie today at EB. I couldn't pass them both up for that money.

Tshirt, artwork, soundtrack, dog tags.

Also you might want to check out some of the EB B&M stores if you want some REALLY cheap games (although, not necessarily good). The store I work at had NFL Gameday 2001 PS2 for $.89, Rumble Racing, Driving Emotion Type S, and a bunch of others for under $5.

Harry Potter 2 for GBA is $14.99. All prices are Canadian, and could vary in the US.

Added a few more games to the list.

Robotech Collector's for the PS2
Superman for the PS2
Dragon's Lair 3D for the Xbox.

I'm really debating Dragon's Lair for the Xbox, since I could get the 110% price match at CC and see how good the game looks in 1080i... hmmmm...

Edit: KBkids is also doing a free shipping deal from their website. I'm still looking through the list to see if there are any bargains... but it couldn't hurt if there are a few that are the same price as EB or other places.

Robotech: Collectors for the Xbox has had it's price changed back to $29.99.

I hope some of you picked it up.

But, NFL2K3 for the GC has been dropped to $9.99

Here's an interesting bargain at EBgames.com


Buy a refurb NeoGeo Pocket with 6 games for $79.99
. That's a pretty darn good deal for a really fun handheld system.

Here are the 6 games that are included.

- Dark Arms Beast Buster
- Fatal Fury First Contact
- King of Fighters R-2
- Metal Slug: 1st Mission
- Neo Turf Masters (Green)
- Samurai Showdown 2

It's almost worth it for King of Fighters and Metal Slug alone. :)

If someone does decide to pick this up and doesn't want any of the games, let me know... I might be willing to send a few bucks for a few of them. I already have two of the Pocket systems, just don't have a few of the games.

Ratchet and Clank is a terrific platformer. I haven't been able to get all the way through it because my wife won't let me play it unless she can watch... don't ask. :)

Well worth $20 bucks. I can't wait for the sequel.

I posted previously about an EBGames.com online rebate promo on Gamecube and GBA games (buy 1 get $5 GC, buy 2 get $20 GC, buy 3 get $40), with a catch being the games had to be selected from a limited list of GC/GBA games that were mostly 29.99 and up (few 19.99). Well, I was in a retail EBGames store today, and the B&Ms are running the same promo, EXCEPT (!) you can buy ANY 1, 2 or 3 GC/GBA games 19.99 and up to qualify for the rebate. The rebate forms are in-store at the register/counter. I verified the terms with the clerk, different from the web site promo. I got Backyard Football, Sum of all Fears and Taz, all for GC, 19.99 each (Not the greatest games, but I've got most of the good ones I wanted; I wanted Zelda, but they didn't have the bonus disc, so I'll probably end up ordering that online somewhere -- maybe KBKids). I'll be getting a $40 voucher for future purchase to go with the others I've stashed away. Mwah ha ha ha ... *cough* ...haaaaaaaaaaaaa.... Er, anyway, this seems like a hottish deal for you Gamecube/GBA owners.

Also picked up Reign of Fire (Gamecube) for 9.99 at Best Buy today.

Have any of you seen a good Dreamcast deal lately? I'm looking for the console, Crazy Taxi, and the Sonic Games all in one bundle. I'm hunting on eBay, but if you hear of anything, please let me know.

Thanks.
