Yeah, this is most likely an exclusive deal.




For Sobakasu.

In this case, Sobakasu, who works/worked at an EB, got to drop in and save some used PC games from being thrown away. The average customer will still look like a jackass for coming into the store saying "i came looking for the free gamez lol".
It wasn't just me. There were other customers that were taking the games as well.
I guess that whether you could take the games or not depended on the type of people working in the stores. It doesn't really matter anymore though, they're all gone by now.

Or the location of the store.

My question now, do ebgames really throw away thier pc games or do they ship them back to the where house?

Because if ebgames is really throwing away pc games, well i think next weekend i will be driving to a few of them , to stop them from throwing them anyway ahah.

If i see something i like anyway. I already own 392 pc games, its only maybe 50 more i am still looking for.
