I was wondering the same thing.

Also, this is interesting:
Guaranteed In Store Wednesday 5/30/07 at 2 PM or receive a $20 Gift Card // Offer valid this week only for select video game New Releases on the advertised release day from 2 PM until the close of business // In store only
Sounds like somebody could come into the store at the end of the day, check all the titles covered by this guarantee, and if any are sold out collect a $20 gift card!

Nope, people tried that on digg a few weeks ago when Super Paper Mario came out and the guarantee is that they will get a shipment of them and that the shipment will be there by 2 PM. Doesn't say anything about how many there will be or that you are guaranteed a copy.

Cool. I didn't think so as you are always right on. Just unusual for a first week release... and a high profile one at that.

Nope. People on the net have been bitching about that. There is a fine line apparently. As long as they have some in stock at the guaranteed time, they aren't required to give you a gift card. Meaning, if they sell out after 2pm you are S.O.L.

So to even have a chance at the gift card you have to be there at 2. I've read people have had success with it, but heading out to CC during the workday doesn't seem worth it for a possible chance at $20.

I suspect that they're:

A) Trying to get back in the good graces of the buying public

B) Trying to take it directly to Best Buy that weekend. So far, the CC ad looks a LOT stronger than the Best Buy one.

Is it just me or does it seem like retailers are all of a sudden clearing their shelves of Star Wars discs? First Costco and now this. Hummm....

(I was still under the impression it was OOP, hence not wanting to tip off anyone in my area who could then swipe the last copy)

PS: I also probably would've responded after your post, but I only just saw it :S

It does say $19.99 Xbox 360 game. Do those even exist? I always thought the lowest MSRP (usually after a price drop) 360 game was $29.99. None are pictured or listed.

About the "guaranteed" time. It does state guaranteed in-store 2 p.m.. Does not mention by 2 p.m. I guess if the game arrives before, like at 12:30 or 1 o'clock, they wouldn't be able to sell it, right? BB's ad states by 2 p.m. No guarantee, just availability. They could conceivably have them in at noon and sell out which would qualify as by 2 p.m.

Just something else to think about before tomorrow.

The folks over at CAG have been listing known $19.99 XBOX 360 games in my duplicate thread over there.

They are not supposed to start selling their "guaranteed" games until 2 PM.

The big $19.99 game I can think of is Table Tennis, but there are a few other ones that are mediocre at best.

Also: Arcade Unplugged is $19.99

i found none of the 9.99 video games at my cc store. there was no bin and none on the racks.

we asked the guy for resident evil 4 and he looked in the rack and said we dont have and wont be getting it!? sale started yesterday, what do you mean not getting it, so i asked him to look it up on the computer. he said we cant do that anymore, its a new system. so CC cannot look up their in-stock inventory anymore? is this really true?

so i asked for a raincheck and they said, they dont give them on movies and video games, so i asked for a manager and finally they gave in and gave me a raincheck.

i doubt they will be getting Resident Evil 4 in, i dont see it stocked at bb or walmart anymore either, but it felt like a small victory. would rather have the game though.
