Games Guides 1p @ Game

Game guides for a penny at Game.

Here's a list of the ones I got:
Lost Planet 2
Prince of Persia: Forgotten Sands
Super Street Fighter IV

Also had other Great guides for 99p like Uncharted 2.

Should be nationwide so get them while there dead cheap.

Instore only.

The cashier said that if they don't have any just ask the staff because they might have loads in the store room. Found the guides in 2 of the Southampton branches.

#6
Given the news about their profits dropping and more shops closing is this some disgruntled employee getting revenge I wonder? A penny! Madness!

For 1p, I'd buy the entire rack of them. We're talking pennies here! Great deal, I myself have managed to find some good bargains with reduced guides, many for 99p for never for 1p! I'll take a look tomorrow in the Manchester GAMEs :)

What's the point putting it on here if you're going to buy every copy you can find. There's no point doing it at all if you're going to be so greedy and selfish! You want everyone to give you a pat on the back for fleecing anyone else locally from having a chance!
#22
OP please in your posts make sure to explain if its a instore only deal.

Done it for you this time

I actually didn't buy all of them so you cant take that comment back plus its nationwide, just because two stores have a few less copies doesn't mean the whole of the UK has to suffer, And to Polly69 Thanks I'll make sure next time.

I almost pity you for being so desperate for money. But now that moment has passed I'm merely going to laugh at you.
Enjoy the few quid you might eventually make. I hear White Lightening is still the cheap booze of choice.
#26
I can confirm this deal the price changes happened yesterday.

However, staff usually just buy them between themselves to be honest!

I got SSF4 :)
#27
Good price if you can find them.
I remember seeing a huge pile of Gears Of War 2 books in my local shop for 99p each.

Totally agree!

I used to work there and what we had to do was remove em from the shop floor tear off the front cover and destroy them. They were high margin items so even selling a few covered the costs. Its unlikely that you'll find them instore for sale but a few might slip the net. Lets just say a few found there way to my car and im still selling them sealed for good money on Ebay now!

Ok, laugh if you want Mr.rich guy but this site is about saving a little bit of money on stuff you want. So if making or saving a few quid out of a deal is so funny I cant see why your even on this forum unless its just for a laugh, plus I don't drink because I'm Islamic so before you speak about someone know who your talking to. Same goes to "bob898" who just joined new to say that.

Surely it would be easier just to give them away to people who buy something than it is to destroy them (considering how thick these guides are)
#32
To be honest, I doubt you'll get more than a pound or two for each guide anyway. It's a strategy guide of a shooter (for which not a lot of people by strat. guides anyway) that hasn't sold particularly well, and is not received very well, and probably doesn't feature too much interesting artwork either.

I'd be jealous if it were Tales of Symphonia guides or something, but this isn't too impressive anyway.

Tried Game in Glasgow Sauchiehall Street and all full price - they laugh when you tell them other Game stores are selling them for 1p...

We used them as deal sweetners at times but the company line was to destroy them. Most likely at this time of year to. Why they didnt just put a free guide sticker or just sell them i'll never know.
