I can attest to the fact that the Hiram Target almost never has decent clearances on games. Most of the good games are bought before they have a chance to clearance out, or they just sit there are regular price.

Nothing much to speak of at Phipps TRU (and the "Us" in their marquee fell off or has been removed for some odd reason -- maybe they're not feeling inclusive).

Only thing I saw worth mentioning was one lonely copy of Geometry Wars for DS in the bargain bin, along with several copies of Elite Beat Agents (this game will never disappear) and a few Master of Illusions.

They're just confirming that Toys R.

I think those would be Masters of Illusion? (which, by the way, is the name of a kickass prog-metal band from Topeka)

Is it just me, or have clearance games basically disappeared from Target in the last month in Atlanta?

50% off clearanced games at BB on Barrett Pkwy through the weekend. Unfortunately most are 07 sports games for the 360 and PS3. Did see what looked like a Two Worlds for the 360 and 3 Baten Katos Origins for the GC on the rack.

A few DS odds and ends in a bargain bin at Tucker TRU, including multiple copies of My Word Coach, Children of Mana, Magical Starsign, Geometry Wars, EBA, and one or two Jam Sessions.

Got all excited because they had many copies of Beautiful Katamari in the case, but turned out they were empty display cases.

Buckhead TRU had two copies of Beautiful Katamari the week that it first went on clearance (maybe two weeks ago??). I picked up one and left the other copy... so someone must have gotten it.

Anyone seen Rayman Raving Rabbids?? I don't think many TRUs had it to clearance in the first place :(.

Barrett Toys R Us had two display cases of Beautiful Katamari...but no games. :bomb:

Did make a decent haul today around Hiram, Acworth, and Marietta.

Target - Cumberland/41 - h3llbring3r said there were Dark Sectors for the PS3. I saw Kane & Lynch's for the PS3 instead in the Dark Sector spot stickered at 19.98. Don't know if it was a mistake on their part or not but there's at least one more there after I bought one.

Toys R Us - Barrett Pkwy - 360 games - Perfect Dark Zero - bought last one - and Lost Planet Extreme Conditions (mismarked) - 5 left - 7.98 for each.

Goodwill - Kennesaw - 41 - Found a Karaoke Revolution Country game for the PS2 for 5.50. I'll probably put this on ebay. They had a slim PS1 and a couple of old PS1s in the display case for $20 each if anyone's interested.

Best Buy - Hiram - 25% off sale on select games on a rack - saw a Lego Star Wars Complete Saga for PS3 for 37.50 after discount but passed. Did buy a Blue Dragon for the 360 for 22.50 (not the best deal ever) after discount (1 left).

Circuit City - Hiram - picked up Prey (360) and Jackass the Game (PS2) for 9.99 (YMMV). The 20% clearance sale applied then I gave them the Gamers Club card. 4 employees there had never had to use one before so one of the managers just manually overrode the price for each game for 9.99. Don't ask me how he arrived at that lol.

Picked up some clothes at the Target Acworth on clearance (pair of shorts, 2 pairs of jeans, and 2 rugby polo shirts for about $55). Also saw a sign at one of the Best Buys I went to that from the 31st thru the 3rd is the tax free weekend.

Guess I'm going to check this out tomorrow. Hopefully they haven't corrected their mistake!!

edit -- I assume they are the Colonies Editions because you said they were mismarked?

I got mine about 6 months ago at the Howell Mill Gamestop. Being the closest GS to Georgia Tech, lotsa nerds means lots of rpgs and srpgs can be found in that GS (moreso than others in the area, anyways). There were like 5 there when I got mine. Might be some left.

I finally made it out there yesterday (7/29) and they had 3 left, but with the correct price of $29.99, and yes I even got the employee to scan it and it was $29.99 in the system. :cry:

I think I was in there just a little bit after you. I did the same thing and he said he had just scanned and checked it for someone else. They still had 3 copies of PDZ CE though.

kinda random but has anyone ever gone to a target that has no video game endcap?

I was at the one on state bridge yesterday and there was no endcap in sight. I was confused and disappointed all at the same time

Last week my two Targets had no clearance games on the endcaps, just the "bargain" (shovelware) isle and the glass-cases; Both had a clearance game endcap this week.

That store has had an endcap not in the section with electronics before. In fact recently it had one near the automotive section with some clearance stuff on it. All I recall was a ton of last years NCAA Football game.

On a different topic, when the hell did all the Wii Wheel prices jump up to 14.99 everywhere? I am glad I got mine at Sam's for 8.66 a while back. A friend just tole me today that she couldn't find any for $10 and sure enough Walmart.com seems to be the only big box selling them for $10 still.
