If you can't find it locally amazon has free shipping! Those used games at Eb are ridiculous. I can't believe people buy the used ones when there are new ones right there and there is a whopping $2 difference between the two. Blows my mind. A goldmine for EB but man, are gamers that broke that $2 makes such a difference on a game?

I usually go to Wal Mart for console games. EB Games is a scam and Future Shop is too far away. EB Games here go to Wal Mart and buy out their stock of WoW subscription cards. Then EB sells them for a dollar or two more. They probably do it with other stuff too.

Wally-mart or Futureshop for me.

EBgames is such a ridiculous company. Every time you ask them something, they lie to you.
They give you $4 for a game that they'll sell for $30 5 minutes after.

EBGAMES is ALWAYS $5 more expensive than Future. Future is often $5 more expensive than Wal-mart (less choice tho).

Wal-Mart FTW. Go up to some old lady in electronics and get games before they release. LoL

They double swiped my credit card saying it was for security reasons and to allow me to leave the store without raising an alarm.The real reason was to have all my data available for creating shopper profiles etc. I'll never go back there again.

I've only had problem with certain people at one location near my work, the 3 around where I live are fine, but you can tell those people aren't the average EB idiot.

the one I had a problem with didn't even know the release date of a game, and lied about it amung other things.

One thing is though, they often have promos on the new games, and the head office doesnt' adjust the used game prices to compensate.
