well I was excited because i saw three copies of Grid for the 360 sitting on the shelf for 15 dollars, but then i looked closer... some jackass cut the seal on all three of them and took the discs out. I wasn't happy to say the least.

Richmond Target stores are pretty much cleaned out.


I got six copies of Lost Odyssey for 15, and four copies of Scene It! for 15.


I just couldn't find Viking or Blast Works!

stopped by the Target next to Santa Ana College today. Got the last GRID for 14.98 and a copy of lost oddysey for the same price, there were still two left. There were well over 10 copies of Scene it for 14.98 for anyone interested

Thanks for the heads up; I sped over there after work from LA and got the last copy of Lost Odyssey and a copy of Scene It (still over 5 left).

He is either going to flip them or the other obvious thing would be to sell them on Ebay or something similar.This site has changed a lot in the last 6 months or so and this open flipping and hoarding has become a part of life on this site and has spilled out of the Blockbuster Video thread.

A little harsh, but if your dumb enough to mention your hoarding then your open to these kind of comments.

I've come across a few CAG's facing this dilemma. Though CAG most likely hooked them up with the information to score these clearance titles they also are aware of the flipping movement.

Found LO and Scene It! for $15 each at 135 and Smith Valley on the south side of Indy. GTA4 SE still $45. I got the last Scene It, but there were still a couple LOs left.

Oh, and there were about 10 Grids for $15.

Does anyone know the URL to check which stores have Scene-It in stock online? I know someone had the one for Madden 09 a couple of weeks back.

UPDATE: OK, I found it.

I'm not sure how helpful this is. I just checked my zipcode and it lists Out of Stock for Targets that I'm almost certain have copies (at least they did yesterday evening).

A lot of the time theft isn't about not having the money for it, it's just about moments of opportunity, the thrill of it, a "because I can" mentality, etc. I mean, how many people are out there that pirate games, and how many actually can't afford them?

Some people just like to steal things. Not that I'm saying that's any better or worse than just being lazy, I'm just saying that's how it is.

I thought Mysterio hit the nail on the head. :lol:
Hoarders are bad enough. Vocal ones are even worse. I hope fettmaster chokes on every goddamn game he bought.:bomb:

There are some stores with leftovers after fettmaster's jackass clearance feast. I'll let him/her waste his gas trying to figure out where. Active Richmond CAGers (more than 30 posts) can contact me if you're looking for specific items.

Or maybe he bought them to use as trade fodder with other CAGers or to sell to fellow local CAGers at cost? I know we do this a lot over in the Atlanta thread. Did you ever think of that? Probably not.

Highly unlikely seeing as most Veterans mention when their games are up for grabs to the community:

I got two copies of Scene It (one for trade to possibly another CAGer in my area for Grid).


Picked up:

Lost Odyssey- $14.98
Scene It?- $14.98
DragonBallZ Burst Limit (PS3)- $14.98
Eye of Judgment- $17.98

The Target near me still has Lost Odyssey and Scene It? I can pick one up if someone has something to trade for it.


As you can see members here to help the community offer up there games or are willing to pick up extra copies at there local stores. It is somewhat understandable why you might come to fettmaster's defense. However, seeing as how you've only been an active member since Jan 2008 you might not have seen all the BS some members pull here.

Sorry but this site has always been like this,, before the Target clearance **(correction) a lot of people would horde the EB GAMES moring clearance. This was done a few years back. Early in the mornings, EB games would alot a certain amount of games and cut the prices to 70-90% on both new and used games and put them up online only until they were gone. I cant tell you how many flamewars there were just like some of these about people here hoarding them, and this and that. I have been here for a long time and its always the same stuff just new people complaining..

Also I want to point out that I pretty gave up on trading/hooking cags up a long time ago due to being ripped off ( ie game not being sent or filing false paypal claim) and people not returning the favor. If I see a local cag'er in the store I will hook them up but other than that I will get what I need because there are so many other resellers here in Jacksonville, Fl and with a GAMESTOP next door now to every target here in jax( yes I have ran into GAMESTOP employees cleaning racks at target, even the electronic people tell me this), these clearances games dont last past noon here.

Now I want to point out that if there were people I know I could trust I wouldnt have a problem, but as my current track records stands, I havent had luck with online trading in the comm and its not something Im itching to get back into. I know it works for some but not for others and its just not my cup of tea.

Yeah im not that stupid and highly doubt that is the intentions of this particular CAG.I learned the hard way on how much some people on this site are willing to help out other CAG when it comes to finding clearance items.. A guy said he grabbed like 5 copies of Hot Shots Tennis for the PS2 for $5 at a TRU store and yet wanted to charge me around $20 for one?
Obviously he got them with the intention of making some profit and for someone to get multiple copies of different games he is out for the same thing not out for helping other CAG or else he would of made it known in his initial post along with the games he got.

What it comes down to is if you want to hoard go right ahead you have the right. However, though the community is slowly straying away from helping one another you should keep your hoarding stories to yourself. This alone is why I don't feel bad for hiding games. Sure the main reason is to get them cheaper, but it is also to get them period.

I've had this happen as well. Another big mark-up IMHO is the CAG's who sell their $.01 guides for $5. Have these members ever heard of Media Mail?

My point is you have no idea what his intentions are. Maybe he hooks his friends up or does his business via PM, you never know. All too often I see people in these threads pounce on someone for buying more than one copy of a game as an ebayer or flipper. Heck, sometimes i see those very same people that do the pouncing say they are going to find games TO FLIP when ebgames does the trade-in bonus deals. If i see multiple copies of a good game for cheap, i'll buy several copies and try to hook anyone up that needs one locally, other people I know, and yeah the leftovers ill keep them around for trade-in fodder. So what? Why do people get so bent out of shape over this.

Funny thing is most of the time I get rid of penny guides I will ship media mail and just charge people the shipping and they still complain im trying to make a profit... lol a dollar something is not profit anyway you look at it.

People can hoard if they want to but in a way there should be a thread made so these people can post away about finding 15 copies of X game and rolling naked on them. If anything keep it in the Blockbuster/Gamerush thread seeing that is hoarder/flipper heaven.

The games are on clearance for a reason. They don't sell well at the full price, let alone at the higher clearance prices in most cases. You can make a few bucks here or there (less on Ebay because of increasing fees), but it's not worth the effort unless you are going to do it in bulk. Then there's the risk of being banned from stores for trading in multiples, or being scorned by the gaming community.

If someone wants to make a career out of flipping videogames, more power to them. I'll keep my day job, thanks. This is a hobby, and I'd like to keep it that way.
