GameStop Store Listing Has Pokémon Black/White 2 Dated for October

April 24th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

If this software listing from GameStop is to be believed, Pokémon Black Version 2 and White Version 2 may be coming to North America on October 2.

It’s very possible that this is merely a placeholder date so GameStop can take preorders on the game, but it does line up with Nintendo’s announced “fall 2012″ release date.

Reminder: GameStop Giving Away An Exclusive Kid Icarus AR Card Tomorrow

April 13th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

GameStop is hosting a demo event for Kid Icarus: Uprising tomorrow at participating stores and they’ll be giving away an exclusive AR card to anyone that attends.

It’s a great opportunity to try out the game if you haven’t yet, but for people who already have the game, it’s worth checking out just for the free card.

The retailer has a store locator set up to find for the nearest store taking part in the demo session. Card supplies are limited, so it’s best to head out early if that’s your only reason for going.

GameStop Selling Download Codes for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus

March 26th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

With 3D Classics: Kid Icarus currently unavailable for purchase in the eShop, there may actually be an advantage to buying eShop games from GameStop.

The gaming retailer is charging $6 for 3D Classics: Kid Icarus download codes. Not bad for anyone who missed out on getting the game by pre-ordering Kid Icarus: Uprising.

In fact, since Best Buy is still offering Uprising for $30, you can put the $10 you save towards buying the 3D Classics version and save yourself a few bucks overall.

GameStop Ending GameCube Trade-Ins Next Month

March 23rd, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Beginning April 2, GameStop will no longer take trade-ins for GameCube hardware, software and accessories.

While GameStop is notorious for paying out next to nothing for trade-ins, the real disappointment is that this means it’ll become a little harder to find GameCube games in the future.

Now’s the time to pick up any games you may have been on the fence about buying, since it may not be there next month and they won’t be restocking any more used copies.

GameStop Now Selling eShop Download Codes

March 19th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

If you wanted to add a few more steps in your purchase of PushMo and Super Mario Land 2: Six Golden Coins, GameStop is now offering download codes for both eShop titles.

It seems odd for GameStop to do this when it’s more convenient to hop online and buy it directly off the eShop, but then again, it does give customers something to spend their store credit on.

Crush 3D is a U.S. GameStop Exclusive

March 09th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

SEGA confirmed on their company blog that the 3D/2D puzzler Crush 3D will be exclusively sold at GameStop in the U.S.

Crush 3D was still listed on Amazon in the days leading up to the game’s launch, but the listing has quickly disappeared. So, GameStop really is your only choice if you’re interested in picking up the game.

Fortunately, it’s on sale for only $20.

March 05th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Like the Crush 3D eShop demo, but don’t want to pay full price for the game? GameStop is taking $15 off the price of Crush 3D, meaning you can pick it up for $20 before the game even comes out.

That said, it looks like the game’s release is getting delayed (again). This time to March 13.

Free Art Book with Xenoblade Chronicles Pre-Orders at GameStop

February 24th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

Not only does GameStop get the exclusive North American rights to sell Xenoblade Chronicles in retail, they also get an art book to give away with their pre-orders.

The store’s listing doesn’t provide any details on how big the book is or how many pages it has, but it does say that online and in-store pre-orders are eligible for the bonus.

Sadly, the art book is a U.S. only deal.

GameStop Selling 3DSes for $149 Until February 12

February 08th, 2012 | Category: Uncategorized

GameStop is temporarily knocking $20 off the price of the 3DS until February 12.

Notices on the retailer’s site suggest that the price cut is part of a Valentine’s Day promotion, but with the First Edition PS Vita bundles set to ship out next week, it’s possible that this is an attempt to sell more 3DSes before the Vita has a chance to cut into its sales.

It’s a smart move on GameStop’s part, and I wouldn’t be surprised to see other retailers copy it as the Vita’s launch quickly approaches.
