    Too many games...

You can never rule out getting ANY game for 75% off. It is possible, very much so. In fact, someone even got the Madden CE for 22.48. That's fairly impressive right there.


Yea, if something isn't moving off shelves quickly at retail it will get clearanced regardless of what game it is. Especially at this time of the year when there are a ton of releases for the upcoming holiday season. Most games sell the first few weeks after release and will only sell after that point if there is a promotion or a price cut. I just see Pure as a game very similar to Grid where they both got good reviews, but ultimately are just going to get lost in the shuffle.

very true... what's baffling is that some games stick around forever. By target's standards, Army of Two should be long gone by now, but it's still $50 at all my targets

Here's hoping that Saints Row 2 drops fast. I'd absolutely go ecstatic to get that on clearance.
My name is in your Resident Evil 5 manual. ;)

I think if games get a retail price cut they tend to stick around and stay out of the clearance bin a bit longer. That said NCAA March Madness 08 for 360 is still on shelves out here for $59.99. :wall: How does that happen? You are telling me that is moving units?

I've been seeing a "new" Madden game lately. I haven't paid attention, but I remember Madden XX SE.
What's that?

It's the Madden 20th Anniversary Collector's Edition. It has Madden 09 and NFL Head Coach 09 bundled together along with a playable version of Madden '93 and some videos and normal CE content.

If you would have checked the first post, which Friend of Sonic keeps well updated, you would have seen that the ps3 version is on clearance. You did not mention which console version you saw so we have no way of knowing if it is on clearance or not.

Picked up the last :360: Scene It at the CSUF store for $14.98 today. I found a copy that appeared out of nowhere last week, but it rang up at $29.98. I thought they were long gone (there were 6 or 7 of them at $41.98 one week and were then gone), and I'd reserved myself to buy it at $14.98. Lo and behold, it managed to survive until today and rang up at $14.98 without a clearance tag. Should be a fun party game and one that I can get my girlfriend into.

Does anyone know if they'll be selling the new version as game only? I'd hate to have to get another set of controllers.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Yes, they're offering a game only version at $40 and the full package (4 controllers) at $60.

Battle of the Bands (Wii) is $7.98

Has anyone played this? Is it worth trying, or is it as crappy as I've heard?

I don't think it helped that for some time after I started seeing mentions of a game called "Pure" I kept saying to myself, "what kind of game is that?" Does the name have some meaning that I would instantly get if I was in the ATV culture? I finally looked it up, but I could see how somebody who might be interested in the genre could be ignorant of this game for some time if they didn't happen to see the cover art.

Ima chime in on Pure here. It is a great game and everybody should get it. It's just really polished and just plain fun. imo of course. I would like the dev to keep going as they got the tech down.

WOO! My burried Lost Odyssey FINALLY dropped to 14.99!!! Also saw and passed on No More Heroes for 20, which will hopefully drop once more (if not, I'm not super pissed). And yeah, what's up with Pure? I enjoyed the demo well enough. If it drops enough, I'll def. pick it up. I think it was 4x.xx?

I was cruising the electronics section at Target today looking for some new video games to take to my anime club's game day at my old college. I bought GOW for $4, Singstar 90's (game only) for $14 and a Buzz game (complete with the four buzzers) for $20. I'm going back either tomorrow or Friday before I head into work to get Singstar 90's and Buzz.

well, I did find Pure on clearance. However, it was the ps3 version, and it was 41.98.
Oh well. I'll just keep looking.

My Target's been doing strange lately. Items (not just games) will drop VERY slowly, they'll have quite a few of whatever it is left, then the Monday that I expect them to finally drop to the price point I'm waiting on...they vanish. Happened a couple weeks ago w/ Bourne, they had at least 4-5 of them then when they should have hit the $15 mark, gone. Today I went checking for one of the Harmony remotes that had been slowly dropping, and THEY'RE gone. Either I'm having really bad luck (and a lot of other people are keeping a sharp eye on those endcaps) or they're sending the stuff off instead of giving the final price cut.

At any rate, I did score the last copy of Dragon Ball Z: Burst Limit for the PS3 for $14.98. They had one copy of Lost Odyssey for the same price, but I passed on it as I've already beaten it (and sold it back off).

Hows the online? I rented it and the most people I had in a race was 3 or 4. I would probably pick it up for 15.

It is but good luck finding it. It went down to 75% clearance months ago.

Nothing exciting last night. Frontlines for 360 is still ~$42 as well. The Logitech remotes are moving slowly at $50. Hopefully one will make it to $25 :)

edit: my Co-Worker just showed up and thanked me for telling him about the $50 remotes. He picked one up last night and was blown away.

the Target near me seems to do this as well

also I think some things never seem to even get put out to clearance to begin with
