Every time I've checked a Target in the past few weeks, there's either been minimal clearance (one or two tycoon games for the PC) or nothing at all.

Gentlemen, I think we've hit a dry spell. :-(

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

I noticed something today - all previous clearance, no matter what discount, was removed from my store. The endcaps were bare but appeared to be waiting for product. I don't think it was for clearance; I think there is a large influx of product at the start of the summer. If memory serves, they start to clear that out around August.

Same here on the east coast. Kind of a dead time for retail before the fall shopping season heats up.

I should really check my local Target, since they almost always have some of the clearance items, though I only still want that damned 'tourist book' from the San Andreas PC version. I don't even want the game, since I have it for both Xbox and PS2 already.


What's in that "Tourist Book"? Is it like an enhanced instruction manual? I always enjoy the artwork of the GTA world, but their manuals have been pretty skimpy in the past.

I'm no gentlman, but I have to agree. The Targets near to me are still wanting $39+ on games most of y'all have found clearanced out months ago. I enter the ASI number with all good hopes and... no joy. blah.

Yup. I'm even seeing gardening supplies/outdoor stuff starting to be marked down. I guess they're beginning to make room for Back To School, but currently they have no BTS product to put on their shelves. *shrugs*

I'd be psyched about gettng new stuff for my gardens, but with the drought we have I can only water twice a week as it is... I'm not about to start planting new stuff when I can't water them enough for them to establish. Fiddle faddle.

I believe so, as it also lists 'ads' for many of the businesses you run into in the world of San Andreas at some point or another. You know, the Cluckin Bells and such where you can have your character eat later on in the game.

I almost talked someone from an EB into letting me have the book, if they didn't find a disc only version of the PC game sitting in their drawer.

It is a very nice book, to say the least, which is why I so desperately wanted to find the PC version of SA from this clearance for $5.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Those little hand-held Game Gear clones had finally gone on clearance at my local target, the same ones that were $20 on Amazon for a bit.

Dropped from $50 to $35 which is still a bit pricey for me, but they had plenty so I shall await further drops.

These were all 50% off in the Livonia, MI Target today on Haggerty Rd.

Snagged the last Psyclone PSP speaker system at the Roseville, CA Target store this afternoon. I would have never paid $100 or even $50 for one of these (don't really know how much actual use it'll get) but for $25 I couldn't resist.

Me too. Turning my future PSP into a mini entertainment center for 24.98 isn't bad at all. Not to mention the thing is friggin huge.
There's also a bunch of shitty handheld and TV games that I didn't feel like typing up.

I know we've been getting this quite a bit lately, but I figured I'd toss in my recon anyway: total clearance futility. Hit up three Targets (searching for SW: Battlefront II at that $4.98 price), and found nothing but stacks of the WoW trial disk (50% off) and the boxed demo of Medieval II: Total War for $4.98. :roll:

Hopefully we'll see some happier hunting soon!

I was in Dallas yesterday and came across Chicken Little(wii) on an end cap with other cheap games. I decided to scan it and it rang up $0.00. I missed out on a clearance copy at the Target in Clarksville, so I was excited when I saw the $0.00. Surprisingly the cashier looked up the last price, which was $9.98, and gave it to my wife for that price. I've had other employees give me the last listed price, but for every nice employee there are three that screw you; particularly management.

Quick heads up for the North Jersey CAGs. Hackensack Target had two WoW Burning Crusade Collectors Edition marked down to 34.96. They are on an endcap by the DVDs. They were there as of 15 minutes ago.

My target reguarly give goodwill all it's clearence stuff after one 15% drop. Then goodwill take it and jacks it up to retail - or get this - above retail price.

I saw a Medieval Total War II box at Goodwill with a "$8.99" sticker and almost popped a boner right there....luckily (or not), i noticed it was the demo.

There was a 20% off sale that took effect on everything 29.99 I think.

Man it's been forever since I've been able to find video games in the clearance section of my Target. About 6 months ago I nabbed some DS titles for about $5 but I really haven't seen anything since. I hope the rumored GBA clearance hits my store soon. They still have a whole case dedicated to it.

Not a game, but I picked up the Disney Legacy Collection "Lands of Exploration" clearanced for $6.26. I probably don't want it, but figure it's good trade fodder.

I went to the Target nearest my house today. Nothing on clearance, and not a sign of any GBA price drops.

Most of the Targets here still have a lot of GBA games, including the older Pokémon titles. There's a lot I'd like to get when it drops, but I don't think anyone here has seen that happen yet. If it wasn't for the fact that the memo was confirmed multiple times, I'd call bullshit. I wonder when or if we'll see this sale? :-k

Today at my Target, I saw a 20 games in 1 portable handheld that plays Sega Genesis and Master system games on a 2.5 inch screen for $24.98. It was originally $50. Didnt get it though. Hopefully it goes down more.
