If you've been to any EB in Australia, you know the drill: every single square metre of the store is drenched in posters, a red sea of fonts screaming SALE SALE SALE. You have to dip your head underneath the posters just to get through the bloody door, before ruffling through enormous bargain bins in a vain attempt to find the game you're after. If you're lucky, in one tiny shelf tucked in the corner you might be find new releases, next to three shelves of empty boxes for games that aren't coming out until November -- PRE-ORDER NOW! This is the EB shopping experience -- but this particular store is different. Believe it or not, this EB is not having a sale.
I know, crazy right. Australian Redditor Andrew was so blown away that he had to post a pic of the place just so others wouldn't point and laugh when he said that, yes, people -- I have found the last EB in Australia that isn't having a sale...
I can't imagine how Andrew must have felt when he stumbled upon this rare artifact of a retail age long past. It must have been like Indiana Jones staring at the Ark of the Covenant for the first time, or Howard Carter when he first found the steps to the tomb of Tutankhamun. It's incredible, I know. And nigh on impossible to believe, but it exists. It is real.
