Went to Target after seeing Pure dropped.

They had Pure(360), Civ Rev(PS3), and Silent Hill (PS3). All rang up 41 and some change. :(

I got lucky and found a $14.98 PURE (360) at one of the 4 local stores Saturday. The other two were $41.98 at all locations.

Picked up Singstar 80's bundle for $12.48.

Nothing much else dropped. Most games held at 50% off and I doubt they will make it past Black Friday. Found some 360 HDs but they are at 30% or 50% off. I was hoping to pick one up at 75%. If I miss out, I will just get a used one at GS (hopefully with an accessory coupon).

I just want to give everybody a heads up about Black Friday and how the clearance sections will be wiped out after this weekend. Shoppers will be picking up anything that looks like a deal and this includes games and such with the little red stickers on them. Don't be surprised when crappy games like Golden Axe stickered at $42 are gone next monday. There is a way around this though...buy them now. Target's return policy gives you 90 days and no hassle if you keep everything sealed. I've got two copies of Ratchet and Clank sitting on my desk so I can return them next week. This also works better than hiding them in the store. So if there is a special deal/game that you are really itching to get, you better do it now or it might not be there for next monday.

Guess that means I should go grab that $30 copy of Siilent Hill that I've been waiting on.

$30 isn't that bad for it I guess, I just wanted to wait a little longer :-P

I had a horrible trip to Target, Ninja Gaiden 2 was $41.98, Pure was $41.98, Battlefield was $34.98, basically everything was only 30% off. Surprising because usually if a store is behind other stores in terms of price drops, usually they are only 1 drop behind, not 2. Everything will probably sell on Friday since customers will think $18 off a $59.99 game is a good deal even if it is over MSRP.

I would think since all targets are on different clearance schedules (as in prices being different from Target to Target) that it would have to be done manually

Target clearance schedule (taken from another board)
Monday--kids clothing and electronics (maybe food also)

Tuesday--women's clothing and domestics (maybe food also)

Wednesday--men's clothing, toys, health and beauty

Thursday--lingerie, shoes, house wares, sporting goods

Friday--cosmetics, hardware, auto and jewelry


Someone should maybe add this list to the first post.

Any Targets in greater Chicago have Pure PS3 for $14.98?

At the one on Peterson Ave. in the city they had a couple copies of Uncharted for $29.98 and one of Civilization Revolution (PS3) for the same price. They also had about 4 GTA special editions--all still at $89 (grrr).

Only the 360 version of the GTA 4 SE were clearanced, not PS3.

Facebreaker $12.48 and I love boxing... I picked it up but will be returning it after I read the reviews and realize my time to play games right now is tight, so it might was well be cloes to a AAA title if I spend the time.

Argh!! Found a store selling Lego Indy Jones, but says it is on clearance for $24.98, even tho you guys say it is for $12.48. Maybe I should wait until after Christmas for all those Lego Indy/Kung Fu Panda games flood the market.

You seem to have misread what you quoted.

Edit: To be more specific, drops always occur on those days, but prices don't always drop every week.

Thats how my Target is. Most of the games are only 30% off. The last two months it has been hard for me to find anything at 75% off like I used to. People are buying the games at the minimum discount. I have become even more cheap in my ways and will only buy at 75% or more off and MAYBE, sometimes at 50% off. Games are not worth more than that to me anymore unless they are good collector/limited editions. I havent bought a clearance game in like two months, but it saves me money. My backlog is so full, so more power to the moms that buy these games at 30% off.

I hit the Target in Vernon Hills and they did a small drop ....

Battlefield: BC - 24.98
Ninja Gaiden II, Civ Revolutions - 29.98
DMC4 - STILL 41.98!

The section was a wreck too. So yes, YMMV is still very much in effect. With all the scores reported I thought Target may have pushing to clear those before shopping kicks up on Friday but I guess not

I'm going to hit the Target in Wood Dale and see if there are any more copies of Pure left for CAG's. Report back later

Lord Kefka... you're insatiable.

I've been calling all around the St. Louis area today looking for Pure for $15. And I've come up with nothing. I guess I'll buy it for $30 before Friday hits.

Also noticed they had Lego Indiana & Battlefield: Bad Company for $25. Hadn't seen those two on clearance racks before...

Which Target was this? Fenton is out of those games, and south county still had them for $35.

Well I stopped by the Matteson IL store on my lunch break. They had ONE 120 GB hard drive left, but it was priced at $44.98! Snatched it up with a quickness. Now I need to take that one back to Circuit City and get the $99 back I shelled out for one last week.

Man... Most of you guys are lucky... I have between 8-10 targets around me in a 15 mile radius and I always have to jump on the clearance stuff a bit early or else I wont find it again!!!! arggg

p/u ninja gaiden II for 29.99, xbox, pure 29.99, wipeout pulse 14.98 and battlefield 25.xx

I did see an xbox racing wheel for 49.99 at one of the targets I frequent.

wish I could get some for 12.xx... o'well I did find an abundant amount of NGII at one target so hopefully I can get that one cheaper.
