Went to my local BB, and they had a bit of the same titles, not as many though. I picked up SSB Melee for 5 bucks, along with NBA 2k7 for PS2 for 10 bucks.

Most of these games were sold out before this markdown happened, don't expect to go into your local BB and find any of the good ones left.

I just came from there and the sales people had no idea about this..there were definitely no $1.99 games which I did see online. The lowest games were priced at $5.00. The games are online by now most of them are sold out. I did manage to find one out of that entire list that I wanted. So keep checking online for the $1.99 games.

I went there this morning and the sales people knew all about it--they were swarming them looking for games they were interested in (and adding the price tags). As expected, my local Best Buy had nothing I REALLY wanted, but since I made the trip to get there before it opened, I ended up picking up Star Wars: Republic Commando for XBox because I had heard it was at least decent (so easily worth the $5). They had some $1.99 games for the DS but none of the good ones... just things like Pokemon Dash.

Most of the $1.99 games are online and I remembered were on the list, but I can't tell you which ones because it said soldout. I'm guessing this is not at all bestbuy stores because the salesteam at my local besbuy had no idea what was going on until we kept approaching them about it. The lowest price I saw at the store was $5.00. Most of the games on the list weren't instore. But then they usually re-stock right when the store opens.

just got back from Best Buy and they had very few games on sale for $2. They said anything you would want, basically any good game, is not available. Seemed they were pissed from everyone asking..

I left the store right when they were re-stocking then I called them to see if they had an item in stock which they are holding for me right now.

I was just at my local BB, they were putting out the price stickers for this, but the list of 1.99 games and lower priced games doesn't seem to match. My suggestion, if you want to check it out, head there, its instore only

Hmm i just went to a local bestbuy during lunch and they didnt have "ANY" of the $1.99 to 4.99 games. They had very little $9.99 and a bunch of $19.99. And they only had about 20 ish titles. It might only be that particular bestbuy. I will check another after work.

That's how I feel about a few of these--they seem a bit too good to be true...

So we should go early to bestbuy under speculation or is this deal actually real?

Here's a more recent thread on the subject: http://forums.vgpub.com/showthread.php?p=24158 But they don't list a source either...

yeah no sites or forum threads about this i've seen have had information actually from best buy, so either this is a hoax (i think this is pretty unlikely) or they're trying to keep it hush hush (to avoid shady behavior like I mentioned previously, which seems more viable to me.) I think the only thing we can do is head to Best Buy tomorrow, pick out a game, and see if they ring it up for 2 bucks.

Hate to break it to everybody... But look at the date of the article--May 24th... So unless there's another source, this is a non-deal.

They had a similar deal a few months ago. This is going on tomorrow, as far as I know. Seen it on several other sites.

as far as i know this is in-store only. i haven't seen any information that indicates otherwise. this starts monday by the way. also a lot, a lot of fatwallet and slickdeals people know about this and are buying up as many of these games as they can to pricematch and try to make a profit, so a lot of stores are going to be completely cleared out of these games, which sucks because there are a lot of them i would love to get personally. some deals websites have some shady people on them. hope dealsplus members won't try to pull crap like that :)

Where'd you get this list from? And I'm assuming I can't buy these online... I'd like to pick up Advance Wars and Lunar Dragon Song for the DS, but I'm doubting my local Best Buy will have either...
