Fable 2
Soul Caliber 4
Burnuot Paradise
Elder Scrolls: Oblivion
Kane and Lynch
Mirrors edge
Farcry 2

They do come in the blockbuster box, without instructions. But if you just want to play the games, seems like a good deal. Scatches galore, but not a problem if your installing to HD. Will probably vary from shop to shop, but these prices have only just come in this week (Ive been checking for a while now). Bought 6 myself for £16.

Its not a bad little price. May go have a look at the weekend.
#2
Would love the get almost all the games you have listed there but I never see ex rental games at Grimsby store. Either we don't get the for sale or staff/friends get them all before they see the shop floor.

If they are scratched you can ask for free instore resurfacing( if they do it).

Potentially HOT !.
#3
any ps3 games in there?
#4
There were lots PS3 games in, but didnt have a look. Im going back in tonight (glasgow), so will have a look and report back..
#5
Good price if you can find any.
#6
I would also be interested in the PS3 game list.
#7
I'll nip in after work...or maybe at dinner and have a look, see what they've got ps3-wise :D (Leyland)
#8

#9
You could have the disk's if scratched, fixed up in Gamestation
#10
Not at my blockbusters :(
#11
Why the cold votes? looks like everyone's happy with this one? If you dont like, tell us why..
#12
i work at blockbuster, and unless the prices have changed since tuesday when i was last in most of those will not be £4 or in a 3 for 2 offer. not saying you didn't get them for that price, but they definately shouldn't have been!
gta, fable and mirror's edge should all be at least £12 pre-owned.
EDIT: just had a thought, you said you got them without manuals and cases? if so, then good on you! a lot of blockbuster stores won't sell stock like that, hence the cheapness. so you're lucky the on near you does :D

Yeah, they all came in the red clearance cases. My blockbuster has sold every pre-owned game to me without case or instructions, and said this was normal? Misprice maybe?Worrying. Wont go into the location, dont want anyone getting the chop with the crunch on and all.:whistling:
#15
Are people now confusing this Ex-rental post with second hand ?.
#16
hmm, well i know some stores do it. some stores just send them away as they don't have the room to put them, or just get told to so do it. my store sent about 3 or 400 discs away the other day coz we didn't have cases for them. check you local store though people, looks like there are bargains to be had!
ex-rental and second hand stuff is the same mate. anything that isn't brand new is 'pre-owned'. ex-rental or trade-in have the same price.
#17
May just be me but I always treated second hand and ex rental different. Ex rentals always had a lot of wear and tear and rarely came complete, also normally had some form of rental only over the disk cover. Made a re-sell hard. Basically as reported in the original post " disk only, in blank case and Scratches galore".

But I can see that, Yes they are technically still second hand as they are not new and sealed etc.

I thought ex-rental was always labelled as PPG or PVT.

of course that was how it was in the good old days when Blockbuster was actually a decent company, the staff knew what they were on about and the company was making money hand over fist. Most of the sleeveless used to be sent to the flagship stores which made it a pain in the ****.

its amazing the difference a decade makes.
#19
well, they are still sort of labelled. ex-rental stock still has rental stickers on ;)
i was trying to get at the point that the prices are the same either way. it doesn't help when not all stores do things the same way though.
#20
No luck at the store in Whitechapel, East London - the ex-rental games are mixed in with about 6 display stands of ex-rental dvds (all in the red blockbusters cases) and all £4 each 3 for 2 but all they had was a few PS2 games (mostly football) and a few original Xbox games (a couple of Rainbow Six games and the like)

Still, potentially hot deal if you are luck y at your store

Basically the deal is this, BB send their sleeveless stock to selected stores in the country. They then sell it for a set sleeveless price (£2 DVD, £4 games) but you won't find them in many stores. Glasgow are one and Birkenhead (Games not DVD's) another, and Wilmslow Road in Manchester do DVD's but not games. They will mostly be ex-rental or trade but some new ones do get in there as well, and the stores do have resurfacing machines so it's hot if you can get there.


i'm just trying to think where we send ours to. i think it's taunton or barnstaple... or minehead
#22
we used to send ours to peterbrough but its closed now
#23
I just phoned the Torquay store and was told that their sleeveless stock is sent to Yeovil.

So if you live near Yeovil, you may be able to get these deals.
#24
Ah, so its not a misprice? mine were from Erskine in that case

bought an ex rental copy of burnout revenge for 360 from blockbuster once, marked up at £4, no instructions so he knocked anotehr £1 off at the till, it was scratched so he put it through a scratch cleaner, which made it perfect for me. Got it home and it was all in French.
#27
...and if you're a farmer from Poland that lives near the Gdansk Store then blah blah blah....!
#28
I no from the last deal like this that stock from newport stores gets sent tothe bb in cardiff if that helps anyone!
