    Every year around the second week of October TRU does a buy 2 get 1 free on video games, they are already doing it with GI joes and TFs, could someone that works at TRU kindly post the date this will happen and what systems will be included. PS2 /XBOX/GC are a given, but 360,psp, and DS/GBA I am curious about.

    Thanks in advance

    Hmm, interesting, I've either never heard of this or I've completely forgotten about it. Make sure to post anything if you find out something, bro.

    They did it this week (ending today 9/30) but it was only for games priced $19.99 and under.

    I already took advantage of this sale on the $19.99 games. But if I remember correctly, a similar sale may happen again in the near future, as I thought the B2G1 on games happened more than once during "Geoffrey's Birthday Sale" season. And keep your eyes open for a similar sale from Best Buy as well.

    I will, thanks.

    So isn't there such a thing such as an event where the actual game console's price is lowered a bit. Because I'm planning on buying a PSP due to Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops. I have the moola but, you know... saving a few bucks never hurt anyone.

    I'm expecting the real one to be in a month or two, so don't worry, it'll come.

    I know it's not this week, but from what I remember it's late October/early November. I'll make sure to post something when I find out when its going to be.

    yeah its usually the second or 3rd week of october, and has happened the last 3 or 4 years in a row. They do it to clear out old stock, before the rush of holiday games comes in. Usually the first week its XBOX/PS2/GC then a week or so later DS/GBA

    With the PS3 and Wii looming on the horzion I dont think this year will be any different. With them already having done 19.99 b2g1f its only a matter of time before the regular one (49.99) happens.....only question is when, and if 360 and psp will be included.

    Well if a deal like this is going on, there would usually be a whole thread dedicated to it(and probably on the front page)

    So i'll take a gander and say no. But if anything comes up, i'll be sure to ring in here.

    Well, at least from what I can catch from the search engine, they're in the same boat as you. There was one thread asking when it would happen and all I could gather is someone claiming that it usually starts around the last week of october.

    yeah this happening this week. I picked up a few games. Sad thing is the selection isnt that great...also you guys should know that TRU has allegedly wisened up and there will be no "my brother already got this game" so you can return it for next week's newer hotter releases.

    Supposedly you can only exchange for games released at the time of the sale and nothing afterwards.
