Was in Target today and couldn't help but notice that they had marked down Bioshock Infinite and put a bunch of copies on the endcap.

Thought it might be a used game but the game was shrinkwrapped and everything was brand new. So I have no idea lol

Haven't really encountered this before so I'm not sure why/how but thought I might post it in case others want to try their luck ;)

Ok.

First, was it only for PS3?

Second, this could definitely be ymmv. I am definitely going to have to check if 360 versions were also available.

I checked and they did have 360 copies as well, albeit in the normal spot and marked at $59.99. So that was a no-go lol

There were still several copies left when bought mine so it may be worth a shot. Hopefully we don't have a resident El Hoardo :P

Might have to check when I'm out tomorrow...but there seem to be some random clearancing errors going around.

Someone in the Target Clearance thread found the $80 premium edition for ps3 on clearance at $39.98, too...but when I checked, it was full price, and nobody else seems to have found it on clearance.

I got my copy of Bioshock Infinite on release for effectively $9.14 with tax by stacking rewards, credit card rewards, gift card deals, and an error on the stores part. Beat that! =)

I don't care if it's because it includes the original Bioshock or because it's PSMove compatible, Sony putting the "only on PlayStation" wording on their cover art is 100% bag-o-dicks.

Also: Target Clearance is possible YMMV? Inconceivable! File under Bragging Rights.

This entire thread reminds me of Portal 2 (?)

keep in mind bioshock 1 comes with infinite, and PSN+ users got bioshock 2 free a few months ago, this means potentially you can have every bioshock game for $32.
