Thanks for the update on the Ponce BBuster. I might have to hit Chipotle and swing by there sometime this weekend.


No problem. I should have mentioned that while they do have games, it didn't strike me as a good selection or good prices.

I'm going to that Tool show too, with some cowrorkers who are pretty big fans. I'll keep an ear out if they wish they'd bought another ticket.

Sears at this location: 4269 Roswell Rd Marietta, GA 30062
(678) 403-4600: has games on liquidation clearance for 40% off. Not terrific prices and certain items are still full price, such as PSN cards and Xbox Points. However, I do think they have some games people will want around $10-15 after discount. Go check it out. :D


Isn't that the one that's going to be converted BACK to a K-Mart? :roll:

Yeah, it is, which is awesome with all the new gaming deals K-mart is putting out now. :D

I think you missed how Kmart pulled the plug on that. Or you're being sarcastic.

Yeah, find the locked k-mart gamer thread. Seems corporate put an end to what Josh was doing, his deals are done, and K-Mart is back to sucking.

On the positive side, maybe KMart clearance will pick back up. As soon as a manager with gaming knowledge took over I knew $2 to $5 games were over.

I just got a $40 PS2 slim at the GameStop on Mansell in Roswell. There's at least one left. These are the SEALED ones that were recently converted to "used" product. Jump on it if you're so inclined!

The Riverwood Target (State Bridge and Medlock Bridge) has some MW3 Xbox 360 wireless controllers on clearance for $30. These are the special edition style ones, with the twisting D-pad. The cheapest you can typically get those are $50 normally (albeit they come with a rechargable battery pack) and even the normal wireless controllers are typically $36 at Amazon. Can't beat this price, as long as you don't mind the MW3 skinning. I bought 1 and there are 2 left.

So it looks like the Ponce Blockbuster is holding firm at $7.99 for all their used BDs in cases. Ridiculously, that is also the price for used _DVDs_ in cases. STOP PLAYIN', BLOCKBUSTER.

BUT! There is an interesting deal. They've gotten in a large number of DVDs and BDs from Blockbuster Online in the little white sleeves. These are $3.99 (eh), but you can get FIVE for $7.50! Pretty nice deal, as there are some good titles to be had on BD, if you don't mind the lack of case.

I got:
HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON
CRANK 2
SHERLOCK HOLMES
BEAUTY AND THE BEAST
TAKEN
GI JOE
THE TOWN

plus DVDs of MACGRUBER, FUNNY PEOPLE, and TRANSFORMERS 2 to round out my batch of 10.

Other things they have among the disc-only BDs: SALT, INVICTUS, THE WOLFMAN, SEX AND THE CITY (both movies, I think?) ... I'll add more later if I remember them.

I was just there today, but didn't have the time to go through the white envelopes. I'll probably swing by again tomorrow. The guy there said that they will be closing on March 18. I have to think the prices will go down further the closer they get to that date. They dropped them from $8.99 to $7.99 since I went there a couple of weeks ago and they still hadn't moved much of the merchandise.

The disc-only BDs are confined to the shorter rack on a table out in the center of the floor, right in front of the registers. They are on the side facing the back wall, on the right end of the table.

Does that mean that all the stores should have them at this price? Assuming of course that they have them in stock.

Yes, scored one at the Snellville store last weekend. You have to ask for a new ps2, if they're knowledgeable they will explain it's still sealed but will sold as used. I got mine at the one across from Office Depot. Dunno if Presidential Commons has it or not.

No luck :( either the dude was just a dick or they really don't have any sealed ones. I asked if the other store had any and he just said no. I didn't recognize him, he def wasn't one of the couple of cool people that work there that I've dealt with before. I've got a friend that works at GS so I'm gonna check with him but if anyone finds one and can grab it for me that'd be awesome.

Just picked up Trigun the ENTIRE series on DVD for only $9.99 at FYE in Douglasville, Georgia! I have pics too I will post soon :) Not sure if it is YMMV or what, but I was looking for Tron on Blu-Ray in the 2pack and ran across this tonight. I took it to the register to make sure I was not seeing things and they rang it up and told me it really is $9.99...okay I will take it!

Edit: Adding pic. Also I am not sure how many they have/had but I noticed a lot of other cheap anime DVDs. Unfortunately I didn't have much time to skim through it because of a dinner date, but I couldn't pass on this one >.<

Target is supposed to have DR2: Off the Record and Halo Anniversary (both for 360) on clearance. If anyone sees them, let me know.

You guys that got the sealed PS2s, what did you say when you went in?

I asked for a new PS2. The guy who helped me, Jared, knew exactly what I meant. They were out on the floor, right in front of the register, along with a few actual used ones.

I asked at the Edgewood store last week, and they seemed ignorant of the new system conversion. They only had used ones.

Stopped at the store at Presidential Commons and was told that they have to "convert" the new PS2s by playing them or "whatever it takes" to make them used. It would be fine if I was getting the same story from everyone but this is just a bunch of crap.
