Resident Evil 5 Official Strategy Guide @ GAME 1p!

Bought three of these in GAME Today at an amazing price of 1p! Brand New. Of course getting rid of old guides. But try and head down to your local. Not sure if it'll be nationwide. Will upload a pic of the Guide in a Sec. My store's in GAME Woking, Surrey

Hah...these things always seem daft... why not just write them off and give them to the staff?

Still, hothothot.

Shame on you for nicking them all though. Tut Tut.

I'd have done the same. =D

Agreed. I'm sure people would still buy them if they were £1.
1p price tag looks ridiculous!

Why cant i ever stumble onto something like this

and game station paperback £4.99

Might be store/ region specific

Marky264 - if you have no need for three copies (friends etc) I'd happily buy one off you - at 100% mark up (making your copy FREE) plus postage. Will send an SAE to make it easy.

Gotta start somewhere... and a 19900% profit seems like a pretty good starting place to me.

1p price for generating good will with customers. Worth a lot more to them to sell them on and make customers want to come back :thumbsup:

Anyone in midlands area know if these are for sale or would be willing to sell me a guide, I will pay them over 100% more than they paid for original !

I'm sure if the staff wanted them, they could pay for them. They often get first chance on deals like this anyway.

Just been into the St James center branch in Edinbugh and they have none. A mega hot deal if you can find one.

They could probably also get 20% off :w00t: ;-)
#19
might have to check it out on the way home - don't normally use strategy guides, but they often have a lot of artwork in them as well, and for 1p you can't go wrong :)
banned#20
It's regional only people!

Got Prince of Persia for 1p from Bluewater and End War for 1p from Gamestation in Dartford.

When i worked there over xmas they threw out old guides, I mean literally about 50. I was only allowed one of each, so got 8 different guides for free.
#22
Nice price indeed :D

Do these guides have trophy/achievement guides in them?
#23
I got the lost and damned gta strategy guide for 99p a few weeks ago in the Manchester Gamestation.

You're kidding yourself. =p

That's an idealistic text book theory and simply doesn't apply here. Goodwill is generated by atmosphere, helpfulness, and consistency in low pricing (not something I would associate with Game, personally).

In broad strategy terms, there is no quantifiable consumer loyalty anymore when it comes to big retail chains. It's dog eat dog.

People will go where the item they want at the time is cheapest and closest, and only an idiot would do otherwise. Hence the creation of sites like this, and the massive influx of price comparison sites.

Price, Place, Promotion, Product

and with the internet revolution, place is becoming less relevant to the mix.

Good god I'm boring :?

Aren't you generous!
banned#26
I used to work at GAME.

All strategy guides eventually get reduced to 1p. ALL OF THEM.

At that point they are written off (removed from the stock system) and given to staff/bin. If you ask in any branch, they will probably have a big pile of 1p strategy guides lying about in the stock room. I often used them to get 'When Bought With' items sold to people I liked.

On Monday morning, stores get an email with all the price changes, so the best time to ask is Monday afternoon once the 1p guides have been removed from sale. The Woking store seems to be the exception in that they would prefer to leave them on the spinner and make ****** all from their sale rather than write them off as per instructions. Most stores do not have space on the shop floor to do this, so don't expect to walk into GAME Oxford Circus and find a bunch of 1p guides.

Some stores are also lazy. So if you see a guide that is more than 6 months old or for a game that now has a sequel, but priced at £9.99, likelihood is that they could not be bothered to put a new sticker on it.

There, I would not rate this as a hot deal, because I know a lot of people will waste their time looking and will not find. You are best just to ask a friendly staffer if there are any 'Written of Strategy Guides from the Price changes this week'. good luck.

My local Game seemed to have absolutely NO strategy guides at all, the stand was gone, nowhere to be seen instore.

Also, I saw the same guide in Gamestation but it was full price.

All your points indeed matter, but no doubt it encourages you back to look for more bargains does it not, into that shop - your chance of spending there is increased.

Anyway you are right, boring.

Did you ask them to check the price?

Similar story:

I was in GAME in Wigan a few weeks ago and managed to pick up the Gears of War 2, hardback collector's edition guide for 98p. Woot.

I called them back up not long after I left the store as didn't get chance to ask on my break. I noticed one there. Unfortunately they said they had look but the copy had been sold GRRR!!
#32
The hardback is well worth the money, collectors piece
#33
Would love this too, checked my local couple of stores and there was none :(

If someone could get one and be generous enough to sell it on to me, id greatly appreciate it.
#34


Game and gamestation are the same company now. Not good news to lose competition like that. :x



I wonder why anyone buys games from either of these shops, the prices are much higher than online.
#35
Worth noting what was said in the Gamestation thread which has now expired as a result; these 1p prices mean that the products are to be pulled from the shelves and not to be sold. So if they do have any, you'll be lucky to be allowed to buy them anyway!
#36
Nipped into game while in town tonight and none of the 1p guides but did grab a resi 5 hardback collectors guide for £2.99
banned#37
As these can be difficult to get, A competition has been placed in misc,

for chance to win one of either guide's
