I saw Tony Hawk CE for 29.99 for 360, Graw 2 for PC was still 34.99. I'll pick either or both of these up when they hit 19.99. Thats the Norman, OK Target. The clearance game section is tiny now.

YES!!! Picked up Ghost Squad for 9.99. Found a few copies by the end aisles, no price on them, scanned them and came up 'item not found'. Asked the Electronics kid, he said they might be recalled, but customer services could help me out. The lady at CS asked me to name a price, I said 10 or 12, she then rang it up for 9.99!!!!! - Green Bay, WI

Besides, you may be able to find the PS3 Homecourt at BB as a frontlane game, and be able to use the "$10 off any PS3" coupon from the BB coupon thread...

My Target had a couple PS3 Untold Legends for $12.48 and a bunch of PS3 NHL 2K7's for $7.48. I passed on both, although if the NHL game drops one more time I'll probably pick it up. From what I've read, Untold Legends for PS3 isn't even worth $12.xx.

Anyway, my store had NBA Homecourt for the PS3 with a generic UPC of 29.99. Would it be immoral to remove the UPC and get the game for its clearance price? What would you do, CAG?


Wasn't it on clearance close to 2 months ago? If so it's probably out of the system and when it prompts the cashier to enter a price, they'll just enter the sticker price of $29.99

Just went to my Target and they had 2 copies of Ghost Squad for 12.xx each.

Its strange because they had them labled with a repackage sticker but it was never opened, i guess Target stores hate the fact of having a game in their store calledl Ghost Squad lol.

It is amazing how fast Ghost Squad went on clearance seeing it is only like a month or so old. If I had a Wii I would snag up on this seeing it is like the Time Crisis games...

Target seems to be clearing out new products pretty quickly these days. I thought the same thing about the PSP slim headphones and AV cables. A month or so after those accessories had come out and they were over in the clearance endcap.

Just bought Ghost Squad for 14.98. I also bought NBA Homecourt for 14.98. When Ghost Squad wouldn't scan, I told the cashier they were in the same section.

Also saw Stuntman for the 360 at 29.98.

All at Streamwood supertarget.

What I'm really wondering about is why so many stores are apparently using the "as is" stickers specifically for copies of Ghost Squad when they aren't actually damaged or opened items. It seems to go against the general idea of "as is" stickering.

Saw Stuntman Ignition a few days ago for $20.xx down from $29.xx. Still a little too much for me, I'll check to see if it's still there at $12.xx.

They also use the As Is stickering when items barcodes don't register in the system like when they receive items in shipments that were sent there by mistake. This seems to be a big mistake like the Popcap Games issue, but on a much grander scale. I'm guessing that they will get the barcode in the system soon. It seemed to me that Popcap's problem was the actual barcode itself as it wouldn't scan, but if the number was typed in it would come up in the system.

The "As-Is" sticker on my copy of Ghost Squad said specifically that it was a website return. I've also gotten similar "As-Is" stickers on a CD (new one by Operation Ivy) and DVD set (some 3 DVD horror collection). I'm not saying all these copies of Ghost Squad are website returns (they are obviously not), but that they also use that sticker when someone returns a website item to the store and the store doesn't carry it.

I scored Excite Truck at my local Target for $12.48 today. Of course it was still stickered $49.99. Others might want to check and see if it's dropped further from the $24.98 listed in the OP.

I saw some Wii Classic controllers for $14.xx with the AS IS sticker...although these may have been opened. I was tempted to get one, but I passed as someone may have had their dirty hands on it ;)

Excite Truck for that price is an absolute steal. Then again, I thought it was a steal for $49.99. :)

Nope. It's a new release. I had to have an employee at Target try and use his hand scanner to try and find anything about it since the price wasn't coming up on the scanners for customers. Retail price I think was around $30. Very weird this is happening all over.

So how good is Ghost Squad? And would I "need" the zapper or Nyko gun to really enjoy it?

just picked it up today and have been playing it straight. It's fun without the zapper and plays fine, but i'd sure like to get one just to get into the game a bit more.
