This is all over Redflagdeals, but it seems like many Superstore locations are having an unadvertised sale on games. Mass Effect 3, Batman: Arkham City GOTY edition and UFC Undisputed 3 are among the titles that are selling for $15. None of the Superstores near me carry electronics, but hopefully some of you can take advantage of this sale.

All the details are here:

Anyone in Airdrie, AB that could pick up stuff for me, if there's a sale? I'm leaving the province for 2 weeks.

EDIT: looks like there's nothing on sale in calgary area

Never Mind. Called Airdire, AB. The guy told me they're not doing clearance now, and probably won't be for a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the heads up, kn420994! If you read through the 18 pages (so far) at RFD it seems YMMV, but I never expected RCSS to turn out to be a place to score a deal now and then. First the MS point card blowout ... what a year ago? ... and now this. Five star.

For kn420994 and any CAG in the Halifax area
, I just left the Portland St location on the Dartmouth side an hour ago and its indeed happening there. I was told the prices got marked down yesterday. Batman AC GOTY isn't going for $15, but the regular edition for the PS3 is. ME3, BF3, SR3 and Undisputed 3 for $15 were among the standouts. There was plenty of ME3 copies for the 360 and PS3 left, but Undisputed 3 is gone for the 360 and only a few copies left for the PS3. BF3 was only left on the PS3 and SR3 was sold out for both by the time I left. There were also some deals on hardware and accessories. Don't bother with Braemar Dr, Cole Harbour and Barrington St. They don't have electronic departments. I don't know about the Bayers Lake location. Maybe someone else can confirm.

The Kitchener, Ontario store still has plenty of copies of PS3 and 360 games (a real glut of ME3 for both consoles). I just snagged a copy of Lumines and Ninja Gaiden for Vita for $15 each, so I'm happy.

Went by kanata, found nothing marked down yet.

from reading RFD it's inevitable for any store that has been renovated.

In quebec, they liquidated all there games over a year and a half ago(maybe more). that was a crazy sale. So it may not be nationwide.

Side note, if anyone gets any psp vita games, or 3ds, and wants to sell or trade some games... let me know.

Talked to a csr at Kanata RCSS. They said there was already a sale a few weeks ago and nothing really of a mention of another clearnace.

This is what they said, but i really doubt the one a few weeks ago was it. They have waaaaaay too much stock to simply say there is not gonna be another one before big games come out.

Damn, I went to the superstore in Brampton last week to pick up a prescription and went by the games section and there was hardly anything left for ps3, wasnt anything on sale then either.

Now that theres a sale, I doubt anything is left since its been posted on Hoard Flag Deals, but will update when I check it out later.

RFD spoils certain deals with casuals hoarding games for reselling, but I wouldn't count myself out on this one just yet. You gotta look around and ask.

I just came back from the Brampton SuperStore. Just like when I went in last week, some games were there, some weren't.

Most, if not everything was $10 or close to $10 for single games.

I picked up the Sly Collection (last copy) for $10, but also picked up a copy of GoW III, since it was also $10 and it was the initial release edition (not greatest hits). They had like 10 copies of god of war.

Was hoping to pick up either LBP GoTY edition, and Infamous 1 but neither of them were there (then again the brampton location never had them before either when I usually went for groceries).

Twisted Metal was still $60 also, bummer.

I generally look for first party games on Nintendo and Sony consoles, but they were wiped out for the most part or not on sale.

I asked one of the electronics guy if they might restock, which they generally were at the time, (ALOT of wii games).


Some highlights I saw at the store:
Fallout New Vegas $10
R&C Tools of Destruction $10
GoW III $10
Oblivion (TES IV) $10
Dead Space 2 $10
Resistance Dual collection (I think it was either $12 or $15)

There were some decent games, definitely some great deals, alot was gone but this location never had much ever since it moved the electronics section to the back of the store (2 months ago).

Guys don't let RFD hoard these games this early in this deal! Please go and visit to see if theres anything left, and talk with the CSR. They may restock.
No offence to RFD, I feel that games deserved to be played and enjoyed, not trapped in resellers hands or casual gamers that build massive backlogs that they have no intention of getting to.

I'm assuming you'll be there before me. It takes me a good 45 minutes to get there. Luckily all I want are DS/3DS games.

Funny thing is, tomorrow is "no tax day" at superstore in ontario. I bet some people had to make the decision of either saving on tax and getting leftover scraps, or ignoring tax and just getting the best and first pick.

i would like to point out that the only the stores that are downsizing their games section are holding this sale. As of now the only store in the gvr area holding the clearance is the grandview location. i called both richmond and burnaby locations today and the sales are not happening there.
