Dont suppose anyone knows when EBGames 10th birthday sale ends ?

Keen on getting their PS3 deal for $626 but wont have the $$ for about 3 weeks.... did notice they changed the advert slightly to say one of the included games has to be a Platinum title altho the picture still shows 2 full release games :) (RDR and UC2)

I know someone at EB and they said they don't have a confirmed end date for the sale. He reckons it should be running for another 2-3 weeks.

Hope this helps!

Cheers,

Jason.

I've just been into EB in Wellington and they said the sale was ending close of business Wed, June 30th.

Their sign does also say "While stocks last." so it might pay to investigate a down payment of some kind.

don;t worry, if you miss this sale then the next one probably starts 2 weeks later.

I can't remember a time when I have been inot an EB shop and there hasn't been a sale on.

they are like the briscoes of game retailers (but more expensive)

Well I'm just confused. I even spoke to my mate on the phone and he said that hadn't been given an end date to the sale. He's even the Manager!

Either way as 'NonprayingMantis' mentioned, they are like Briscoes! Always got something on.

I'm sure you will get it sorted..

Damn cars always cost too much money! :(

Popped into Glenfield EB last night..almost walked out with a PS3 then :) But common sense prevailed....

Sale is on until end of the month. All good.

Except the damn washing machine has just packed up and that has priority over a PS3 (bang head on desk).

So another long wait...... (sigh)

hahaha!! Gutted man! I hate it when you really want something and you wait it out till you have the money and then something else craps out and you have to spend the money to get that fixed. Seriously not cool.

How much was the PS3? I want one :(

Far out! How did you walk out of there and not get one.
I would have been dumb and pulled out my credit card and purchased it!
Not a bad price! :)
