Just got back from Best Buy in South Austin (by Slaughter) and they have a slew of Dead Rising Off the Record with a * tag on them. Asked what it meant, they said it was 50% off. It was priced at 20$, so I picked up two copies at 10$ a piece. No idea if it is just the store clearance, but it is a good deal

This sounds like a sale at the managers discretion which would make it very YMMV. Great price though.

Hate how these are never available online. I'd even pay an extra few bucks for shipping.

I saw this for $17 used at GameStop and thought that was cheap (considering it came out... what, 6 months ago?) but this is even better! Course it's probably YMMV.

They probably had like 30 in stock. The price was listed at 30$ in the front of the store, but listed 20$ on the rack.. and rang up at 20$ before the discount. They also had Dungeon Siege and a few others in stock, but didnt care after seeing DR2:OTR

Considering this is a game from Capcom, how much you wanna bet they'll make a Dead Rising 2 Complete Edition in another couple months that includes the original DR2 game and this OTR one?:lol:

Don't get me wrong. I bought both DR2 and DR2: OTR(PM'd Amazon or something at BB for it). But DR2 gets annoyingly hard a bit later in the game when they introduce 'super zombies' that you can't kill and should just run away from and OTR is more of the same for the most part and repetitive as hell even on the free mode version.

Definitely gonna check tomorrow, though my stores rarely ever have clearances or anything decent. (Last good thing i found on clearance was probably Dragon Ball Z Raging Blast 2 during last summer, or the time they had those Guitar Hero bundles for 9.99)

I live just a stones throw away from that best buy in southpark meadows, but I already grabbed OTR when it was 20. What else was on clearance over there?

Im going to check this out today. I wanted to try one of the Dead Rising games and $10 is a good price for any!



Tried local BB. $30 for the DR game and I didnt see anything below 19.99 any where (for video games) sans pre-owned. But even those seemed over priced. Batman AC pre-owned was $45 0_o

You can kill those "special zombies" just as easily as a regular one. And they won't release any complete versions.

When I originally played through part of Dead Rising 2, I wasn't even bothering to level up my character. But later on I found out it made it a bit easier, so I started trying to do so on my old game. Chances are I'm just gonna go back through from the start and mess around with maxing them out.

But before I do that I'm gonna finish playing Dead Island.;)

Went to the local BB today....they had the game in stock just not on a clerance table ora nything of the sort. On the shelf it said $29.99 and when I had them price check it showed as $19.99.

I attempted a PM of the receipt another CAG posted but no luck. The employee said that usually BB does company wide clearance not just individual stores so he found it odd it had been sold at that price.

As someone else stated this is probably a manager's special not a company wide clearance. Either way this is pretty decent for that price.

I agree $20 is a fair price for the game new but knowing others are getting it for $10.....I'm not gonna pay $20.

Agreed. I thought about it new now that it is 20... but don't feel like it anymore.

Gee I wonder why. Tried today, but no luck in NYC.

Good to see fellow Austin CAGs here! Finally a deal that wouldn't be so "YMMV" for me, too bad that Best Buy is about 40 minutes away, no way I'm going to waste gas all the way over there just for $10 savings.

I did go to the BB next to South I-35, but no luck there.
