I get that.
I think Gamestop sometimes
beats online prices though...like the Persona 5 PS4 Steelbook I found for $30, or the Shin Megami Tensei IV Apocalypse I found for $20.
That, and with their 4 for $10/$20 sales, I can easily save money there vs. online...AND get things in the shape I want them to be in.
