Soo today is EB Games Wacky Wednesday where in theory you'll get a good price for stuff online only....supposed to start at 12.01am but didn't just went back on their site and showed Call of Duty Advanced Warfare for PS4 and XB1 for $36...however you click on the link and it shows $88.  I have taken a photo and posted it on my twitter feed since it looks like it's going to be a mistake they won't probably honor but hey go for gold everyone.

 

Tried clicking on the search for Wacky Wednesday items on the sides and got figurines only with just 1 game showing (Minecraft for the 360 (at least pretty sure it was the 360 version) for $25.00.

 

So anyway if you see a good deal you're actually going to buy post it here so others can possibly get it too.

Looks like they have fixed the problem because Ghosts is showing as $36 while Advanced Warfare is showing at $88.

 

Not really seeing anything that is a great deal for me. I was hoping Wolfenstein might have been super cheap but they are still selling it for $57.

 

I noticed they finally stopped advertising Halo MCC as "four games" in their bundles.I couldn't have been the only one that complained.

I like it how a lot of their prices are still more than most other shops normal prices lol.

 

WatchDogs $20 preowned on PS4? I guess I'll pick that one up.

Yeah just had a look and they've fixed the CoD price as mentioned above but really their prices are terrible unless you've not got the launch titles which are selling for around $20 or $30 2nd hand there's nothing but stuff priced above or the same as you can buy new elsewhere what a joke.

 

If I was them I would have used this as a way to clear their old 2nd hand stock selling most of it for 25 - 50% off if not more I search for Xbox One stuff in the sale 8 items...1 was a console.

 

They did have Wolfenstein 2nd hand cheapish for the PS4 (somewhere in the $30 range $37 I think).

Wish they'd put some deals on Vita and Wii U, none of the other prices are tempting enough to make me spend. Dunno why PS4 Watch Dogs is $20 when XB1 is $28 and PS3 $30.

I called them out on this too, no reply back but good to hear they've canned that slippery marketing angle.

The Special Edition is on clearance at the Warehouse for around the same price, I think. Good luck trying to find it in a store though. :P

That's a great price but my flatmate has it, I wasn't impressed with the product quality. For its price I would have been pissed as it's mostly plastic.
