I went in there to get an optical cable for my 360.  They had some and they were 30% off! Sounded great...

30% off of 75 freaking dollars!  Seriously, and they wonder why they went out of business. I went to Wal-Mart and got one for 15.

Pale, you got ripped off. Optical cables are essentially all the same, get one off eBay for $0.99 and return the $15 cable to Wal-Mart. It's a digital signal, so there's no difference, same with HDMI and DVI.

Oh I know 15 bucks  was over paying, but for this I wanted to get my freaking 360 hooked up and not have to wait for shipment.  15 bucks was cheap enough to pay for that luxury.

I saw an HDMI cable there, no joke when I tell you this, for 124 FUCKING DOLLARS. I bought the HDMI cable I use with my PS3 for THREE DOLLARS at NewEgg. I say good riddance, glad these fools are out of business.

I like to imagine that when they charge you > $100 for an HDMI cable, the cable comes with ownership rights to a small struggling third world nation.

any news on further discounts coming soon?

As i mentioned in my last post, I got the component cables for my wii (for future use, right now they're collecting dust) and a wii points card for the 30% off but I haven't gotten much of anything else.

20% off dvd's isn't worth it to me, and some random stuff i'd buy soley because its on sale (like new external speakers for my crappy computer, or a replacement pair for the one i have hooked up to my ghetto mono tv) is still only 10% off and not worth it.

Oh, i was in there the other day and almost picked up a wireless sensor bar just becasue it was advertised as $6, and although I'd probably never use it, might be handy to keep a spare around. Sure would make moving my wii into the family room easier for parties..

I looked for both.  They have them for normal price minus 10% when I was there... so you still do better on Amazon.

When EGM closed it's doors, when people brought up the fact that EGM's entire business model was fail, everyone was all "oh, boo hoo, what about the people who are losing their jobs?"

When Circuit City is closing, everyone's circling them like vultures, trying to get good deals and saying things like "they deserved to close!"

Wow.

Hah very good point....

I think the difference here is that I worked for Circuit City for over a year and hated every person in management with a firey pashion.  I know for a fact they ripped people off regulary with protection plans, lying about what's covered, refusing to fix things that should have been covered, generally price gouging.

Everyone I knew there that didn't participate in these horrible things would be fine getting out of there. =P

So yeah, I guess my personal experiences make it ok (in my mind) for me to be a hypocrite here.

Also, 1up didn't charge people 10 billion percent markups on cables. =P Just sayin'

40 1UP people got laid off in totally sucks that they got let go on such a bad time, take it from a guy who is looking for work in general.

This is just sad :/

40 people are out of a job and we're supposed to feel sorry for them, regardless of the fact that these 40 people dictated the flow of the magazine that failed.

Thousands of Circuit City workers are out of a job and it's okay because Circuit City overcharged on cables?

Circuit City personally pissed me off so I don't care what happens to them.

There, I dare you to try and argue with my blatant and painful selfishness! There's nowhere for you to go! =P

You're just stupid and are an HD gaming whore.  Go play your PS3 and 360 and leave just core gamers alone.

Nice try, but you can't ban me, you M$ pimp. Just because I'm not impressed with your attempts to bring the 360 into EVERY SINGLE CONVERSATION, i won't be silenced!

Is everyone committing forum suicide?
Why must all things be so bright? Why can things not appear only in hues of brown! I am so serious about this! Dull colors are the future! The next generation! I will never accept a world with such bright colors! It is far too childish! I will rage against your cheery palette with my last breath!
