Some people have asked for pictures of the newly expanded store, so here you go...








There is still some decorative stuff & a bit of tweaking to do, but you get the idea... it's MUCH BIGGER now. Come & take a look.

16 April 10 - 21:40FREE STUFF with online orders this weekend!!!

For those of you left out of our "in-store only" sales over the last few months, here's a promotion for you:

Starting tomorrow (Sat. April 17th) and for the rest of the weekend, every order from our online store will include a free gift. What's the gift you ask? It's a surprise random thing, could be a collectible, maybe another game, who knows. The more you buy, the better the stuff.

Also: At a random time tomorrow, 4 games will be dropping to door crasher prices & other titles will get random price drops throughout the day. Whomever posts this to RFD and/or CAG will get a PM a bit before it goes up (for first dibs).

That is all.

16 April 10 - 00:15Fallen soldiers.

As of the last week or so, 2 local video game stores have gone out of business...

Play N Trade Kitsilano... is packing it in & moving their stock to their Squamish location (same owner). My sympathies to their staff (some of which were friends of Gamedeals) whom are now looking for work, but that store is one we're glad to see gone.

Cheeky Monkey Games... was a small store downtown run by Mark (very cool Brit). We liked him, and his store will be missed.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to remind everyone that the independent video game store business (or any indie store business for that matter) is a difficult one, and it's important to support your local stores (as opposed to the big chain stores) if you want them to survive. They are what gives our neighborhood culture and generally provide products/services far better than what the big box stores do. Something to think about.

09 April 10 - 23:52Grand re-opening of Gamedeals Video Games v3.0

Not to sound like an "Extra Sugar Free Gum" commercial or anything but DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE, DOUBLE YOUR FUN, GAMEDEALS IS NOW DOUBLE THE SIZE!!!

We knocked the wall down, put in some new carpet, and made Gamedeals bigger. It's been a long 4 days (the longest we've ever closed since we opened almost 4 years ago), but we're almost ready (and are staying here into the late hours of the night to finish it). I'd like to thank the "friends of Gamedeals" that helped us out today & over the last few days, as well as our customers for being awesome and allowing us to continue to grow.

To celebrate our grand re-opening, we will be doing "NO TAX" on anything in the store this weekend (Sat/Sun)!!!

Even if you're not looking for anything in particular, come by & say hello, and marvel at just how big our store is now. There is more to come later this year as well with a new pricing structure, special events, parties & more. See you soon.

01 April 10 - 03:07Gamedeals is closing...

... for a few days next week for renovations. We pride ourselves on being open every day, but unfortunately from the 6th-9th of April we will not be here to save you money on video games. Big changes are happening at Gamedeals (and change is good). After examining some of the flagship indie game stores in other cities, we are growing to serve you better (by borrowing some of their best ideas).

As part of this growth, we will be permanently closing the "Expansion Pack".

So for the next 3 days, everything in the Expansion Pack is ON SALE:
- DVD's are "Buy 4 get the 5th one free" ($5 each or 5 for $20)
- Everything in Dan's showcases are 40% off!!!
- Import games are still 50% off.
- Everything else is 25% off.
ONLY FOR 3 DAYS!!! April 1st-3rd.

Once the "Expansion Pack" closes, we will only be keeping the DVD's, so if there's anything else you want (toys/collectibles/etc.) now is your chance to get it.

We will re-open on Saturday April 10th with a "Grand Re-opening" party (more details to come).

In the meantime, we are OPEN during the holiday weekend (Friday-Monday) so come on down.
