Times Square location is departing first, then the Union Square area a few months after that.

Games at Times Square are currently 20% off (PSP and PS3 10% for some reason), books and cds are 25%. Rock Band 2 SE is going for $117 right now. I'll keep things updated as I find out their timetable.

Not that I've seen, I'm on the mailing list for when notable markdowns happen, so that's where I'm getting my info from (that, and I work a short walk from Times, so it's easy enough to check on things).

Research is claiming that they're killing it in April, I'm only hoping to get some RB2 drums to replace my fully working RB1s. The bounce, man, the bounce.

does the % off seem to be from original MSRP or off more reasonable current prices?
yeah, I know, likely MSRP, but it doesn't hurt to ask

and psp and ps3 are less % off because they ROCK!!!!

The signs today say 50%, I'll do a sweep through and report.

Not all are MSRP, the under 20 crowd are all still 19.99 to start off at (Harvey Birdman Wii was 40 at CC when they were cleaning house). I might finally pick up RB2 Drums yet.

I stopped by on my way home, here's the deal:

30% on PS2 and DS
25% on Wii, PSP, PS3, and 360

These are off full retail, and they have tons of inventory. I noticed plenty of the following:
Fallout 3 lunchboxes for both systems
Fable II Limited Edition
Madden Limited Edition
Pretty much all the most popular titles are in stock, if anyone wants to ask re a specific title, i'll let you know if I remember seeing it.

I work right next door, so this is going to be the death of me. I picked up some Blurays tonight at 40% (25% + 15% extra when buying 5, not applicable to games sadly).

They do have a lot of game related merch. Rock band/Guitar Hero clothes, hoodies, bags. Same with nintendo old school stuff. I may pick up a couple of tshirts when the prices start dropping.

They should open an Amoeba in NYC. That would be amazing.

I hope Generation Records on Thompson is hanging in there...might be the last good records store in the city.

Yeah, the 40%-60% newsletter just came in. I was going to just upgrade my drums to RB2, but if they cut the SE down, I'm going to pick that up and sell off my old setup plus RB1 and 2.

Back from scouting the top floor: Games are now 30% off, still a good selection, might get a copy of Gears 2 out of this afterall. Drums have now dropped to 50 something (52? 58?) and are in good quantity, while the special edition has dwindled and is still 104. What do you guys think? Drums and sell old drums, or SE and sell RB1 bundle with extra copy of RB2? We'll see if there are still any left (they probably just moved them to another floor, they've been rearranging like mad there).

Got Rock Band 2 SE $113.78 after taxes last night. Was going to wait till next drop but this was the last box that looked in perfect condition. I remember seeing about six more so I wouldnt wait for too long in hopes to save about $10. ( My wife is livid ) They still have tons of videogames so I will wait on those. That store just looks good there. Wonder what else will come in in its place...

Rockband 2 (game only) is 50% off so $30 and I saw a couple Fable II LEs as well as some Fire Emblem RD (Wii) and a ton of $20 DS games (nothing particularly amazing or new).

I have also heard Forever 21 is taking that space.

Anybody seen Hotel Dusk there? I might go tomorrow, but I will probably wait for the Union Square closing, since I'm usually too lazy to go to Times Square.
