any websites will charge shipping, so $3 to $4 is going to the cheapest you will find.

I got those on ebay for .99 cents and $3 shipping. Be patient and you should be able to get a deal on them

I suppose the only reason you want to play any of these games is for the fairly easy achievements and to pad your gamerscore, and I don't blame you for that. The games in question are almost 5 years old, so I guess that would add a little difficulty in finding them. I'm sure if you wait a bit you'll find them for a great deal.

Why pay anything?

Go to Gamestop. Buy game. Beat game. Return within 7 days. Get store credit. Buy new game. Beat game. Repeat.

Then you'll pay ~$10 and get as many achievements as you wish.

Believe it or not some people like to own their titles. Personally it'd bug the hell out of me to have a game on my gamercard and not have the game in my library (even if it is 100%).

Anyways the reason the games were listed as $0.99 on gamestop.com (ignoring shipping!) is because they wanted to get rid of their stock ASAP. It's not because that's what the game's worth or what the competition was offering. You'll be hard pressed to get it for $1 anywhere, so you're going to have to accept the $4-$10 price range, which frankly is bargain bin pricing.

Frankly that's not much at all.

How many old games do you still play though?

Especially when we're talking sports games...what's the point in owning NHL '06, when NHL '11 is already out?

That's probably the cheapest you'll find it, because it isn't free to ship games.

Try buying several at once. Sometimes they will give you a deal on shipping and you can save money by buying multiple rather than separate.

NBA2k6 is Amazon right now for $1+$4.xx, that's about as cheap as you will find any game online because of the shipping. As the one person stated Ebay would probably be your best bet as you may get them for as low as $4 total.

You could probably score them a little cheaper if you could walk into a store like gamestop though. But you'd have to get lucky that they would have it, so would it really be worth the time/gas?

I don't know about websites but my local gamestop has a huge bin full of those old games like that for 99 cents to $5 each. That's where I got them.

Not all, I use Play and they are free.
