In case you weren’t aware, EB Games loves a fucking sale. Like, really fucking loves one.
The collective mentality of EB Games franchisees the world over is, and always has been, every surface without a poster declaring BIGGEST SALE EVER!!!, 80% OFF!!!!, 2 GAMES 4 THE PRICE OF ONE!!! is a surface wasted.
