    Cheap before it was cool

After stopping at my two Targets again and finding PGR4 at both stores ringing up at $30 I have figured out that my Target stores never clearance price the games for the minimum that other people are finding them for. I have never seen these lowest prices that others have. Ninja Gaiden Sigma stayed in the case for months and never dropped below $40. I could never find Folklore for $15. They had tons of copies of Shadow of the Colossus for $15 last week but now they are gone. Jerico is STILL in the case for $25. I think my Target stores in my area will give these to the goodwill before they reach the minimum price that others are getting. It is really frustrating when I see these great deals posted but the are NEVER available at my stores.

Went to target today. The 9 copies of unreal on PS3 were gone...Must have dropped today, since they were there yesterday and scanned at 29.98.

I thought PS3 Unreal was a universal drop to $40?

In the past, one of my Targets would never sell a clearance game below 50% off. If there were any left after 50% off they would send the rest to Goodwill. Thankfully, they eventually started to allow the clearance games to go to 75% off before sending to Goodwill, and I've been able to have some pretty good pick-ups.

Just for those on the fence over the Simpsons game, I've played a few levels now and it's well worth the $12 if you're a fan of the show.

Way better than the demo would indicate, and it's truly funny, too.

i'd give somebody $20 if they picked me up the simpsons for ps3, if it's available for that price.

Are you talking about the PS3 version or the PC version? City of commerce of city of Whittier? More importantly, are there any left? Thanks for the info :applause:.


PC -- nobody buys PC games in my area, so AAA titles usually go clearance fast and hard. But yeah, def PC version (i got a barrage (okay, 2) PMs asking me to pick it up if it was the ps3 version)

also: IN CITY of Commerce, on Whittier BLVD.

does that look like shouting? not shouting, clarifying.

Picked up a DS Lite Headset for 3.74 yesterday, a Psyclone 360 VGA cable for $5, and a PSP hard case for $5.

For the PSP Phat, they had about 3 of the kits for $10 that include a USB data/charging cable, case, screen protectors, slide in charging station, grip with an extended life battery built in, among other things. Was marked down from $40.

Clearance is done at the store level, so prices vary. I always scan pretty much anything that looks old (any x-box or GC game or old PS2 games). I scanned Oblivion PS3 yesterday and it is still 29.99 at my store.

Any good PC games on clearance?

I saw a post saying ET: Quake Wars was $5...I'd really like to get that! Any deals on Unreal Tournament III for PC? I saw a post saying it was $13.

Also, any deals on Gears of War PC?

I recently upgraded my PC, so some new games would be nice.

oh i know that but what i'm saying is i assume most people just see that games aren't stickered as clearance or are stickered old clearance prices and people assume that's the price... at most targets i visit games aren't marked correctly but ring up the lowest price here but soon as they are stickered correct they are GONE within the first day or two which gives me the impression people don't bother to check prices

i make a list of games i want. go to the upc database and print out the upc and then walk up to a scanner and see if the price has dropped.


that's a GREAT idea... how do u do that? there's one target with the older scanners that don't have the keypad to enter dcpi's so i would love to do this to save time as the people in electronics are so freakin' lazy


to change subjects a bit, what do people see as the next "wave" of clearance games for 360?

Eminemobied, go to the first page of this thread and look at the first post. Sonic has put a really helpful guide on there if you are trying to print of the UPC's. Takes some effort, but well worth it if your target is like mine and keeps almost everything behind the case.

I would also like to know what the next round of games is going to be. I missed out on Simpsons and Blue Dragon (Got BD from Amazon), but I'm hoping it'll be a good clearance like this last. Maybe Turok, due to its lackluster sales and stale inventory? That'd be a good one.
