Sony Style Store. I'm not trying to hate on them just couldn't find anything there. Even deals posted within the hour or so.

Best Buy, I've gotten some great online deals from them, but I've NEVER found a deal in-store.

Wal-Mart, home of the full-price games long past universal markdowns other stores take. We've all seen games that are in bargain bins elsewhere still marked at $59.96.

Only thing it's good for is the scammers doing fraudulent returns for credit.

Yeah, there WERE sales at Gamestop last year - there is never anything at Wal-Mart except for maybe on BF. So Wal-Mart, no doubt.

Agreed. Wal-Mart only has deals on Black Friday. That's it.

It cracks me up to see GameStop being mentioned when they had deals quite often. Where else can you get $1.99 games and trade your junk?

Don't forget max payne 3 CE for $19.99.

I got the epic edition of Gears 3 for $50.
It was almost mint. I now have a "good" Gamestop.

You know what, Target is worse. Imaginary clearance sales. ......

Except for a few decent online / BF deals, Wal-mart is my least favorite B&M store, their clearance section is a joke.

I gotta say Walmart. I got the MP3 CE from Gamestop and Target had that $20 trade in program that one week for crap games, so I gotta say Walmart did the least to impress me this year.

Best Buy. They may have stepped up on the deals in recent times but their consistency of service is still in the shitter.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

I vote Target as well. Clearance dried up and they never have good deals. Takes a Steelbook and some gift cards (Tomb Raider) to get me to buy a game from them for the first time in over a year.

My vote goes to Wal-Mart, GameStop had so many PS2/PSP Pre-owned sales this year that it was probably my most-visited store :3
