It’s not really all that wacky, after all, is it?


  • No not wacky at all. Just like their Mad Monday wasn’t all that mad.

    EB Games must feel pretty good when a clueless stumbling retail doofus like Harvey Norman are undercutting their prices. Morons.

  • EB Manager: “Christ, these huge DJ Hero and Guitar Hero boxes are still here? What the hell man?”

    EB stooge: “Sir, nobody’s buying them. Everybody’s avoiding these overpriced things like the plague. I’m telling you, when Tony Hawk: Ride comes out in Australia, we gotta sell it for like 20 bucks!”

    EB Manager: “Forget all that. We gotta get these boxes outta here. Put on another sale!”

    EB stooge: “But sir, none of the other games on this list are at reasonable prices.”

    EB Manager: “Well done, you want a prize for figuring that out? We need the shelf space now!”

    EB stooge: “C’mon sir, we gotta give them something so it just doesn’t just look as if we’re clearing stock.”

    EB Manager: “Alright, alright. Reduce Call Of Duty 4 by ten dollars. How’s that?”

    EB stooge: “Sir you are a genius! I’ll get on it right away!”

    • No offense but EB managers have zero to do with any pricing or even most of the factors involving the running of the store.

      It would happen more like this…

      EB Head Office Retard to EB Head Office Lacky: as above.

      EB Head Office Retard: “Pass this amazing sale on. Get it set up as soon as possible.”

      EB Manager: upon receiving details “WTF is this… Great more stuff to take crap over from retard customers who think I set store pricing.”

  • roflmfao!
    theyve just priced the games similar to what other stores are selling them at. hahahah.
    i was gonna go in and check it out but i just cant be stuffed. its way too hot here today and i already have every game that i really want anyway. the only games i want havent been released yet :/
    C’MON MAG!!! the beta reminded me of socom a bit, just playable.

  • *shrieks*

    EB Games, a great place to shop for scratched, so called, NEW game discs. Yay, to that!!

    I’ve had a lot of bad experiences from them with scratched discs.

    • Actually you will find that it is publisher greed not retailer. Australian consumers have been trained to expect to pay retailers cost prices for software. Regardless of exchange rate the Australian publishers still charge retailers the same wholesale prices.

  • I hate to brag but I already got the good games on this list atleast half the price cheaper by doing a little shovelling on ebay and cashies.

  • Some of the prices are pretty outrageous to be considered ‘wacky’, but DJ Hero is good for the price if your into it, considering the cheapest it’s been so far is $130. The Guitar Hero 5 Bundles albeit overpriced do beat most other stores, so it ain’t all bad.

  • I don’t get some of the flak EB Games gets regarding product quality and customer service. The guys at my local EB are great blokes, know their games, have good customer service skills and me, nor any of my friends that shop there, have received these so called “scratched” new discs everyone keeps talking about.
