Saw Tony Hawk 3 and SSX Tricky for 14.99 and Disney's Magical Mirror for 19.99, new regular price shelf tags dated today. There may be others, and for other systems too, not sure....

Might have to pick up SSX Tricky for that price...

The Kay-Bee near me wasn't doing the the 9.99 SSX Tricky deal a while ago, so I might get it for $14.99 myself. It's a pretty good little game.

P.S. -- Tricky and Hawk 3 are both on the BB web site at that price. Don't see Mirror there, but the B&M had plenty. Rogue Leader is also there for 19.99 (same at B&M, forgot about it earlier).

So Rogue Leader was marked 39.99 at my Best Buy, but I had them scan it and it was 19.99. Thanks again. :)

Almost got Rogue Leader for 29.99 the other night. Glad I showed some restraint.

I feel much better about 19.99. :)

You can actually get the 19.99 games for 14.99 if your B&M BB still has those "gamer's gift cards" with the "$5 off video games 19.99 and up" coupons on the backing for each card (they're in plastic cd-style cases). Just activate one for $5 or so; they don't expire until 12/31/03.

SSX Tricky is awesome, I can't get enough of this game, it is Road Rage on Snow board

Is Outlaw Golf (on sale for $20 next week I believe) any good compared to the Xbox? I have both systems and was wondering if it is camparable. I rented and love it on the xbox.

Beach Spikers is 29.99 as well. Not great, but good price for a great game.

You should also pick up Tiger Woods 2003 for 29.99. It's a damn good game.

Wow -- can anyone else verify they've gotten these at Best Buy B&M for 9.99??? My local BB didn't have either in stock.

How is Tiger Woods compared to the Xbox version? Any idea. XBox version is still $50.

If Beach Spikers is in fact 9.99, I'm going to run out and get a copy. I've heard it's great and at 9.99 that's an insane deal!

I just came from BB.
Turok was $19.99.

I didn't see Beach Spikers.

The Gamecube "Big List" thread over at Anandtech confirms that Beach Spikers is indeed 9.99 at Best Buy B&M; my 2 local BB's were both sold out. RATS!

Eternal Darkness is also $19.99 at Best Buy B&M.

Also for those of you who have the December issue of EGM (GTA: VC cover), there is a Best Buy "$5 off any video game title or accessory $19.99 and up" coupon on page 127. This coupon is good through 2/1/03.

Trevor
01-15-03, 07:36 AM
CreatureX, where have you been? The $5 coupons can be had for free by buying Gamer's Gift Cards. These coupons do not expire until 12/31/03. I have about 30 of them stocked up.....

Was at the best buy in Levittown, NY last night. They were sold out of Beach Spikers, but said they will get a new stock in on Jan 23rd. I asked the sales guy to look up the price, he said 9.99. i asked for a raincheck at that price and he said he cant give a rain check for something not advertised in the flyer. He said 9.99 is the price it will sell for when they get more in stock. We'll see.

How is Tiger Woods compared to the Xbox version? Any idea. XBox version is still $50.

I have Tiger Woods for the XBOX and have not seen the Gamecube version. One benefit of the Xbox is that the hard drive of the XBOX makes it real easy to save stats, shots, etc. I would think a memory card would fill up quickly.

My buddy has Tiger for the Cube and it doesn't take up much memory card space. Like 20 blocks tops I think. If you've got a 251 it won't be an issue.

My BB was out of Beach Spikers too...does anyone know if I can go into CC and get them to pricemwatch there?

I just came from BB, they had Turok and Rouge Leader for $19.99.

How are these 2 games ?

Rogue Leader is one of the best games for the GCN, arguably a classic. It's easily worth $20.

Not to be confused with Rouge Leader, an unfortunate cross-promotional title produced with Maybelline. I can never get past the mascara level. Damn clumps!!! ;)

Rogue Leader is a GREAT game.

I picked up Eternal Darkenss for $29.99 and Beach Spikers for $9.99! I brought Beach Spikers up to the front to have it scanned because it was labeled $49.99. I figured it might ring up $29.99 as well...I was stoked to get it for so cheap!

Zodo
01-16-03, 04:05 PM
Dang it...
So i guess no one knows if CC will pricematch then?

They won't price match it if it's not on Best Buy's ad.

Picked up Beach Spikers for $9.99! Thanks for the heads up!

Beach Spikers lives! Local Best Buy had it back in stock (after not having it since the deal first showed up here), and I got it for 9.99. Also got Swingerz Golf for 14.99 (19.99 minus $5 coupon on back of gamer's gift card I picked up next to Gamecube section and put $5 on; clerk scanned the coupon and let me keep it).

mine had like 3 little rows of them with like 7 in each, there was no price tag but they scanned for $9.99, great price for a great multiplayer game

Also, Tony Hawk Pro. Skaters 3 (GC) $9.99 this SUNDAY :) If you price match w/ Circuit City........it end up under $9.00 w/ taxes :)

No Beach Spikers in my area BBs. If anyone would be nice enough to pick me up a copy, I'd appreciate it. Email: raymond@redshorts.com

Keep checking Best Buy. I was finally able to get it for $9.99 and they said they should probably get more in by the 31st.

I also snagged the last copy they had of Knockout Kings 2003 for $14.99 (using a $5.00 off coupon). I didn't realize it at first, but this is an enhanced version of the 2002 games on PS2 and Xbox and a GameCube exclusive.

Can't beat cheap GCN games! i plan on getting Pikmin for cheap when they get it in!

Hey, I tried a bunch of best buys last week and no Beach Spikers... Glad you guys tipped me off to new shipments. I just went in (saturday morning) and the guy was stocking them when i got there! They had about 30 copies of beach spikers...

so if your best buy didn't have them last time, I'd check again.

TripWire
01-25-03, 04:01 PM
Thanks for the heads up on the restock, before there were none, now there at least 20 copies of it. Picked one up of course.

Also notice that Freekstyle and Home Run King for $9.99 also, which probably have already been mentioned.

is home run kings any good? i figured it is like most non big name sports games... lousy.

I hated it myself. Very arcadish. Its mostly a home run derby game. I would go for All Star Baseball 2003 instead. You can find it at many places for under $20 as well.

Is this a permanent 'while supplies last' deal for beach spikers or what?

I got mine at the BB in Cary, NC

01-25-03, 10:19 PM
I had purchased this right when it came out for 50. I liked it alot, but once I maxed out my players etc. there wasn't much replay value, even multiplayer wasn't much fun I didn't think. Ended up trading it or selling it on ebay something.

Figure for 10, I"ll pick it up again, got it today. Guy was suprised when it rang up 9.99. I wasn't ;)
