Blockbuster: All new Xbox and GameCube games $4.99


Still bouncing around on last generations systems? Own a current system, but want to fire up an older disc inside it? Blockbuster is clearing out all of their Xbox and GameCube games for $4.99. There’s no timeframe on when this will end. The big BB is getting out of the last-gen business, so this sale will probably be on until they pull the remaining items from the shelves.

Just so we’re clear, this price applies to new items only. Used games are still carrying their sticker price, although for the most part the sticker price is $4.99 anyways on used Xbox and GameCube product. PlayStation 2 items are still being supported by Sony with new product coming out regularly. As such I wouldn’t expect to see these join the clearance table anytime soon.

EDIT: Reader b has had some trouble finding a store that’s aware of this offer, so while the whole chain is supposed to be offering this, treat it as YMMV.

    Where did you get this info from?

    I stopped by 3 different blockbusters last night (in Ontario) and none had the sale on or even knew about it.

    My day job is actually with BB, so the info is definitely 100%. Tell them to price check any new Xbox or GameCube games — they’ll come up in the system as $4.99. That being said, I’ll make sure to edit the original post with a YMMV in case they’ve started localizing the deal.

    Hmm, ok.. the ones I stopped by only had about 2 or 3 gamecube games each, anyway, and I don’t think any of them were new.
    I didn’t even know Blockbuster carried ‘new’ video games for older systems

    Hey Jim
    I’m gonna check out my blockbuster(s) tonight
    so thank for the deal
    but just wondering what YMMV actually stands for?

    Hi Amy!

    YMMV means “your mileage may vary.” Essentially it just means that some stores might do it, some might not.

    Hope that helps! 🙂

    I was at a store in Cambridge today and they had a small selection of GameCube and XBOX games – all priced at $4.99. Nothing I wanted but I verified it’s happening.
