I was just at the HMV at Yonge and Dundas last night, and I didn't notice anything. Picked up Street Fighter on bluray for $10 though. SCORE.

Should be country wide, Hmv is getting out of the gaming business permantly according to csr's at all 3 stores I visted. Only 4 stores in the GTA have video games, add Sherway Gardens to the kist as well.

I called 1 of my local stores and the guy on the phone told me.

" we don't carry games any more we got rid of our stalk and gave it too This Location ( which is also near me but is closed right now ) * i ask what's the percentage off was * the guy mentioned 50% - 75% off on old titles they have but the newer titles tho they were going to keep getting "

I also looked online their website and i see that they don't list games anymore as i went to look up infamous 2 and then uncharted and nothing then i looked into each category and .. again NOTHING SO.. if anyone is interested .. call their Local HMV's and maybe you can run across something good. i might give it a shot but .. the bus workers are on strike here and i doubt I'll get a ride downtown as it will be ALOT more busy with cars sense bus's no longer exist.


so if anyone goes to get anything from a HMV during the same ... Post here on what you find and what you picked up ! and thanks for letting us know dvdswapper

Lol Yes this has been know for about a year though. All the stores around here stopped carrying games over 6 months ago. Definitely final clearance. Those few stores who still sell games need to get rid of their stuff.

Anytime James.
Infamous 2 should be 60% off.
Uncharted 3 is 25% off
Rachet and Clank:all 4 1 25% off
mw3 25% off

Some locations did get rid of some stock, they sent 400 titles to Ottawa loactions from Dundas/yonge OUTSIDE store on Friday.
Depends on where they think they'll sell faster at the lowest possible % off.
You need to know what prices are at other competitors to get the most for your money. Try doing a bit of homework tonight on the games you want. Check the website price minus 75% off for older games and 25% off for newer games.

Tales of Vespa was 75% off $64.99 if anyone is interested.
I bought a psmove bundle_one controller for $30.00 DOLLARS!
Systems were 30% off whatever price you see on the site.
This is not on the site, this is not found ANYWHERE. I am bringing you this info first even before some store employees even know. Do you homework tonight and call first thing in the morning. There are many good deals to be found.

@ichit4k4_set0

This hasn't been known for a year, not in the GTA. We've had games on sale upto 50% off but most were only 20-30% off. Nothing off newer games. Now EVERYTHING is discounted most at 75% off.

Looked like the Dundas Square location was 'reworking' their games section, pulling titles maybe to mark down? Nothing changed from the last few months of mark downs on mostly older titles though. 3DS stuff still full price, etc.

Maybe I'll venture out to a couple HMVs tomorrow. I did have some more blurays I meant to buy. Might as well see what's up.

So nothing will be advertised then? It'll just come up on sale when they ring you through?

Only locations that have games will have this sale on.
Call in the morning to verify, some places don't have the list yet like the Yonge/dundas outside location in Toronto.
Only 4 locations in Toronto have games. The 3 downtown and Sherway.

You guys actually had time to get deals if you went into a store. Only posted it because I got messages on my Facebook/Twitter pages to do it. I haven't been on that site for a while. Still lots of PSMOVE bundles at Eatons. A few systems too. I'll post my reciepts later on tonight.
By the time they are done confirming you guys should already bought items. Too many non-gamers slow the process down at RFD. There will be lots of confusion because no one will follow what I post and some people on there post FAKE info to confuse the non-members. Not here. You guys got it first with enough time to actually call a few locations to verify. That's gives you guys a leg up on the competition.

Visited 2 HMVs here in Calgary in the last 2 weeks and neither of them even carry games anymore so this is going to be pretty hit or miss.

They are getting out of the gaming business completely so everything must be sold off. Everything at EATONS was marked down, not one title/accessory/system was spared. So I think this will happen at other game stores but some are sending the stock elsewhere. Your best bet is to either show up or call tommorrow to find out more info. Some places don't have the list yet so the mark downs are the same as before.

I hope you guys help each other out with info on which stores are particpating. Like I wrote before, in a city with thousands of game hunters this was not posted anywhere else. No other game forum had this, no deal hunters on Twitter had this, complete silence for this crazy deal.

Would you rather have had no time for people to call?
I did the best I could to bring you the deal first. Don't complain.
I work nights and usually with family right now so you would have not known at all. I went to Eaton Center to get gifts for the family because the family cat is sick and I wanted to cheer them up. After buying the gifts and on the way out I stopped by HMV to see what's on sale. After that I hurried to the other locations to verify for everyone. I took time away from my family to help others and you complain?:cry:
Sometimes helping others doesn't pay it seems.

I was told they open until 9pm?
http://www.hmv.ca/Stores/Locator.aspx
Toronto outside locations are open until 9pm according to site.

I gotta go for a bit. The family cat's sick and is constipated. He cries now when trying to use the litterbox, my wife and kids are upset. I got them gifts from Eaton Center and some med for my cat. If anyone has been through this your advice would be appreciated, other than that I need to go now. I will post my recipets later on tonight after they finally calm down enough to go to sleep.

Local HMV got rid of their games weeks ago. Best bet is to go to Oshawa, but that's hardly worth the trip since I they either already pulled all their games or they're already picked clean since it's in Oshawa centre.

I'm sure most here are thankful that you brought it to CAG's attention first, but everyone knows RFD is hoarder central. Most of the people (guests) that frequent that site honestly don't give a shit about any of the sources, they're just selfish exploiters, or worse...they have their own Ebay store!

As for HMV in Calgary - most here are inside malls, thus close early on weekends. Like JamesSoprano mentioned, 7PM tonight.

In any case I hope your cat recovers from it's constipation. Sounds dreadful.

Thanks for the concern James and Vetrax. I just came back from the emergency clinic with my cat, he won't die from septic shock if I waited until the morning to see my regular vet where my cat would be more comfortable because he knows and likes the staff. So i'll be off in the morning as well, here's the pics I promised. I lost one of the bills for the Bioshock 2 CE but another guy sent me one as well from Bloor st.My neighbour from across the street gave this to my wife while I was away.

Wow I'm so out of the loop. I didn't even notice HMV stores were getting rid of their gaming sections. 0_o Too bad I can't go looking around. Which stores in Toronto still have games besides Eatons Center? Yorkdale (although I guess this one would be in North York)? It wouldn't hurt to pop in later on during the week just to see what's left, I'm still hoping to find a copy of Pokemon Ranger 2 somewhere, or other DS games I missed out on (DQ6), but I don't even remember what HMV carried.
