Spotted this deal over on RFD :lol:

The Sony Store (Sony Style?) has quite a few notable games (all PS3, obviously) on clearance for $9.99. The great thing about this, is it isn't the typical clearance bin garbage you see in other stores, but actual GOOD games worth playing :applause:

Here's a list of titles:


  • Africa
  • Afro Samurai
  • Army of Two
  • Batman: Arkham Asylum
  • Bayonetta
  • Bionic Commando
  • Bioshock 1
  • Bioshock 2
  • Call of Juarez
  • Dante's Inferno
  • Dark Void
  • Enchanted Arms
  • End War
  • Fear 2
  • Ghostbusters
  • Godfather
  • God of War Collection (FRENCH VERSION ONLY)
  • God of War 3 (FRENCH VERSION ONLY)
  • GTAIV
  • Guitar Hero: Metallica
  • Guitar Hero: Smash Hits
  • Hawx
  • Hellboy
  • Lego Indiana Jones (not sure if it's for the first game, or second)
  • NHL '09
  • Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2
  • Prototype
  • Pure
  • Rainbow Six Vegas 2
  • Resistance 1
  • Resistance 2
  • UFC 2009
  • Unreal Tournament 3

Note: Please keep in mind that the above list has been compiled from users' posts stating as such, so don't be surprised if it isn't 100 percent accurate. However, titles in orange are confirmed as I purchased them myself so I can vouch for their prices.

Apparently, these have been on clearance for a few days, but despite this, I was still able to find a nice selection between the 3 stores I called. Either way, I'd still suggest calling before heading out to save yourself on the gas/time/frustration. Good luck :)

I tried to get GOW Collection and the guy scanned it in as $30. YMMV?

Hey Eoyote, what time did you go to the Chinook location at? I went there this evening but only found Dante's Inferno, but no Bioshock 2 (which i also wanted).

You can take a look but the people on RFD said all Edmonton locations are picked clean.

Hmm, I want to say around 6:30-7:00? I noticed 2-3 copies of Bioshock 2 still sitting on the shelf when I left. When I was at the checkout with my games, one of the other employees walked over and sounded extremely surprised/excited at the price for Bioshock 2. Sounded as though he was intending to purchase a copy(ies) which may explain it's absence :bomb:

GTAIV might seem like a good deal, but the Complete Edition is coming soon...

At a full price of $59.99 more than likely. Kind of hard to compare the two at such a large price difference even with the DLC episodes being included in the complete edition.

Awww man, I walked by the Sony Store today and had the biggest urge to go in (I rarely do), but I didn't.

:bomb:

I've already played/beat/loved GTAIV, wouldn't mind buying it for $10. I already bought Episodes from Liberty City when it was on sale at Amazon, so there's no point in me waiting for the complete collection. I might call around tomorrow, doubt any would be left though.

I got a few of these today (Bayonetta, Dante's Inferno and Bioshock 2) and the Sony rep told me most of these prices were only good for today (28th), as was the $25 gift card promo. Hope she was wrong though, these are great prices.

Various PSP and PS2 games at $5 as well. Some blurays on sale, too. Doesn't really matter anymore if it was a one day sale though!

There's a patch that reduced the load times, I don't know how bad they were before, as I haven't played the game pre-patch, but it's pretty good imo.

I don't have a 360, so I can't compare the PS3 version to it, but it's far from unplayable on PS3. I would go as far as to say it's one of my favorite PS3 games. I've played through the game at least 10 times, and haven't experienced any game breaking problems.

Compared to screenshots of the 360 version, the 360 version definitely looks better, but gameplay wise, I would imagine they're pretty equal, and this game is very fun. Slight slow downs some times, but nothing too major.

I think I paid $28US for mine, for $10, I'd definitely recommend you get it ;)

Instead of pulling numbers out of your....... out of thin air, Google it first.

40$ MSRP. Most likely 30$ deals within a couple months.

I prefer having everything on one disc than multiple discs / DLC so that's what I'm getting.

Why in the hell would they do it for 1 day? surely they could've advertised it better to, you know, make MORE money.

i called my local store and Africa is indeed for $9.99

The Sony Style Employee said The Beatles: Rockband Special Edition originally for $200 was going for $10 he said that can't be right but it was .. they were swiped in seconds.

Guys, this deal is NOT dead, at least in Ontario. I can confirm this because I went to a Sony Style Store myself today. However, all the good titles such as Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 and Bayonetta were picked clean. If the games are mis-tagged, tell the employees to scan in the game. For example, Resistance: Fall of Man was labeled at $27.99 but scanned in at $9.99. I had them also scan in Resistance 2, but it came up at the regular price of $29.99. I also had them scan in Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood, but it came up at $14.99. So it may be a YMMV thing according to the store. GOW 3 [English] was also tagged at $59.99, and also scanned in at that price. I only picked up Resistance since I've been meaning to buy it for awhile. They had Tiger Woods Golf 08 for $9.99, but I passed on that.

I think this deal might be dead in Quebec however, according to posters on RFD.

Couldn't find Bayonetta in Edmonton :( That was the only one I was really interested in.
