Mine also had Space Chimps (360) for $10, DOAXBV2 for $8 (about 10 copies), and Trigger Man (PS2) for $3. This was at the San Antonio Legacy BB. No F4, Conan (got the last one), or Harry Potter. They did have 2 more Simpson 360.

Just got back from BB in Manhattan NYC and they did have 2 copies left of Simpson with the Tab indicating the $10 price tag but when it scanned up it was still coming up priced at $20. They corrected the mistake but just to let some ppl out there know that some BB do not have a clearance bin but have the game on the shelfs where I found my game.

Same happened to me, and the shelf tag said $9.99 too. Conan also rang up $20 and had to be corrected.

Saw these bins at the West Paterson, NJ Best Buy. Would've picked up Thrillville had it been in the $9.99 as opposed to the $14.99

I find it amusing that some of the games I bought appear on the receipt with the description "Holiday Dumpbin." Don't try to sugarcoat it or anything, BB. Apparently the person who entered the description into the POS was previously known for marketing sushi as "cold dead fish."

Best Buy in Tupelo, MS has a bunch of copies of Madden 09 Collector's Edition for 360 (didn't see any PS3 copies) for $19.99. I'm guessing they're just trying to clear out a bunch of them they couldn't sell - but that's an amazing price.

This is definitely YMMV. Both the Mayfield Hts., OH and Mentor, OH stores have it at $90.

Just stopped by the Brooklyn, Ohio BB. The bins were pretty much garbage. I think the only few 360 titles in the bins were basically around 8 copies of Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix mixed in with various Xbox, PS2, and PSP titles. I did see on the shelves Conan (360) for $14.99. I did see one copy of Virtua Fighter 5, but it was $39.99 instead of $9.99.

Checked out the bins in San Bernardino, CA friday and what did I see... mainly crap but I found Disgaea for the PS2 for 19.99!! A steal for a great strategy/rpg thats better than the ds version.

Disgaea got the Greatest Hits label treatment recently, so that should be the standard price on the shelf at just about any store. Still a good deal if you don't have the game yet, but it's not unique to the holiday bins.

The bins at my local BB disappeared yesterday. They were where the checkout line makes a u-turn. I doubt they sold out all, or even a majority of the games in them. It's possible they were moved to another part of the store, but I didn't see them.

BTW, based on the queue at BB yesterday, there is no recession.

My local BB (Danvers, MA) used to have a $9.99 rack, they've now put all those games in a holiday bin and upped the prices to $14.99!!!

out of curiosity, what good ps2/wii/ds games were in the bin? I might pass by next weekend and pick one up since I just got a $10 rebate thing.

i agree with most of the posters here. I was in delaware near dover (the dover mall to be exact) on nov. 11th and the best buy out there had huge bins of games but mostly crap. however they were getting rid of a whole bunch of box sets. by far my greatest haul was a brand new copy of the limited edition halo 3 for 39.99. they had a ton of them. the game was still retailing for 59.99 but because they wanted to dump the LE's they were giving them away. i would say they had about 11 copies. i can confirm that sale on halo LE's for that location but i would check other bb as well.

The decent ones I saw for PS2 were Test Drive Unlimited and ATV Offroad 4. I almost bought both of them but wanted to wait for a %10 off coupon lol, stupid.

Every best buy I have visted have had two bins (ones 9.99 and the other 14.99). The problem is that the games get mixed up between the bins, and many aren't labeled, so you sometimes aren't sure without asking if it's 9.99 or 14.99
