They have model 1 Genesis with gamepad and controller for 30 bucks, Dreamcasts for 44, old gamepads are cheap ect.  I think they've knocked around 10 bucks off of every console.  Yeah those aren't great deals, but unlike buying the stuff from ebay, ect. it's guaranteed to work and you'll actually get the gamepad, power brick and all the a/v stuff.

Ditto.  My laser died in my dreamcast so I should get one, but what puts me off about gamestop is their lack of free shipping.  Actually they don't even pretend that it's shipping and just call it "handling".  This is 2017... if you pay more than 25 bucks for something and it's of a reasonable size and weight you get free shipping.  Everybody seems to have figured out how to do this but gamestop. 

I thought of getting two 360 gamepads for 30 bucks, but it's 9 bucks shipping and at 40 bucks that's the going rate for used gamepads. 

Been sitting on some gift cards for quite a while because I have the same problem with them that I do amazon... I can always find the stuff cheaper elsewhere so I end up buying it there. 

That being said I do think the retro deals are pretty good right now, which is why I posted them.  Just ignore the cheapest man alive's ramblings.

Define retro.  Seriously. It needs defining. If you are talking Dreamcast and earlier then yes it is online, yet I do see old crap still in the clearance section at the back of their stores.  Apparently Disney's Infinity is retro now.

I think its age dependant.
Old buggers like us tend to think of Things pre gen 4/5 as being retro.

Where the youngsters tend to think of Gen 5/6 being retro.

Technically they would both be correct as I believe the definition of retro means in layman's terms something which is no longer made or supported.

That being said though I read a article a couple of years back that said Brazil had only just stopped selling games for the SNES  because it was so hugely popular.

So who knows....

Well now like most places their in-store sales aren't the same as their online sales.  Officially at least, gamestop only sells retro stuff online although you can turn old stuff in for credit... that's how they get their online stock.  By retro I mean dreamcast and before.  Their online store sells every popular console from the nes onwards.  It is rare for them to have nes and snes consoles in stock though.
