RE4 and Pikmin 2 got marked down on the 22nd so they're probably gone already, but Metroid Prime Echoes and Geist will be $9.98 starting Monday. Great games if anyone doesn't have them yet!

Sorry, turned out MP2 didn't drop until today. Ask an employee to scan the game because a lot of the price drops are not marked.

Yeah, RE4 was $10, I got a copy of it and there's a big thead about it at cheapassgamer.com

They're no doubt liquidating stock.  Once they're gone, they're gone (from Toys R Us any way).

However selling games for $10 when they're still $50 everywhere else usually results in someone buying out a store's stock, with the plans to resell them on say ebay.  That is assuming the game has some pull.

Ends up being unfortunate for those who were looking to actually play the game.

I bought one copy of Geist with plenty to spare.  Pikmin 2 was not in stock, and I had purchased most of the others earlier in the year.

This might be the perfect opportunity to get Geist.  I'll definitely go for it, if I have the opportunity.

You should try starting >HERE<

then click on "All Games" under the system of your choice.
Find the game that you are looking for and click on it.
print out that page.  Circuit City already got  memo about the sale, so they shouldn't give you a problem.

Hope that helps

I saw that, but they took off the price just because it's out of stock. I guess I'll just tell CC to call Toys R Us if they don't believe me; I think Gamestop does that. Thanks

Does anyone have an image of Geist for $9.95?

Looks like you missed the sale.  I have it printed out, I could probably scan it in and e-mail it to you, but not until after I get home(around 9pm pst). And thats if I get the new computer up and running tonite.

If you can, that would be great.  If not, I'll live.

Thanks.

I thought you knew that before you bought it.

I'm no judge for FPS games, so it didn't really bother me how "bad" that aspect of the game was.  The sooner I got done with those parts, the better.  But I enjoyed the puzzles and perspectives, and that's what I want more of.  It was a $50 gamble for me, but I came thru satisfied.  Unlike, say, StarFox Adventures...
