Seems like one was bought out by the other, they are very very similar. I don't know if I've had a problem with EB like you guys have. They're pretty helpful and sometimes help me decide whether or not to buy a game. I don't go there for hardware, though.

I usually get my stuff at Wal-Mart. Their WOW 60-day card costs 32 bucks, which is cheaper than EBGames and their crap online renewal service.

Yeah, I'm rather against EB games and Gamestop, for the following reasons.

At Gamestop, I asked for We <3 Katamari, and the guy there goes "Sorry man, guess you shoulda jumped on the bandwagon, like, 6 months ago. Ahuhuhuh." Like a total idiot. I didn't tell him I'd been looking for months.

And I called EB games, they told me they had a game with case and everything, and when I went there, they said " Umm.. do you remember the name of who you talked to? No? Hmm... well did he tell you the pin number of the game? No? well, Sorry, I guess I don't know what happened." Needless to say, I was quite upset.

Now I'm all Gamecrazy. They're cheeper, and the employees will usually sell me M games since I go there so often.

Only game store i've ever been to is EB Games since it's walking distance away, if I'm in a rush to buy a game i'll go over there and check out the prices, otherwise I just order it off Amazon or something.
