There marked most of the time its diffrent prices in every target

How do you find these prices? Are they marked this cheap? Or do you actually have to go ask them to ring it up?

Hmm... Looks like I will be checking the local Target (Columbia, MD) today to see if they had any price drops. I bought Tony Hawk 3 last week (4.44). We will see...
Take Care,

Still, the fact that had a rather complex pricetag leads me to believe this may be the new nationwide price for targets everywhere -- if not all stores everywhere.


I don't know. Fuzion Frenzy (Xbox) is $5 at some Target's, $20 at most, but the one I found it at for $5 actually had it behind the glass with a pricetag indicating it was $5. (I have actually scanned the game at two or so other Targets and it was $20.) The guy who got it out for me scanned it himself to make sure the price was right, LOL. I think the pricetag thing is just something that varies by store, just like the actual markdown itself.

When there's stuff on clearance, I'll tell you, but the P-Ton location has been ransacked and then picked over... nothing for the box, and nothing of worthy note for the cube either (matrix is still 21)

man... i just checked the target in placentia, CA and there is nothing but 20 dollar games. i scanned like 10 vid games and they were still 20 bucks or more. :(

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

A little off subject but do they make any sort of battery pack for these? It would rock to play this on a plane instead of my gba sp.

Saw Metroid Fusion on Clearance at my local Target. Not quite ripe yet though, only down to $24 for $30. Definitely worth a check in a few weeks

Yes, they do. Mine came free when I bought the portable screen a couple years ago. The life on the battery is not the greatest, giving you around 2 hours or so...just long enough for a short plane ride. The battery looks likes a thin tray which the PSOne sits on, BTW.

I work at a Target, in the Electronics Dept. I put out the new releases on Tuesdays, as well as stock the Electronics on truck days which are M, W, and F. There are many games, and software on clearance currently at my store. A lot of PS1 games, and Need for Speed Underground is like 20 something. I can send games to people who request them and send payment for clearance items they may want me to look for, just ask, I don't mind. Also, did anybody take advantage of my Cody Banks 50% off any DVD post? I know that I sure did. 8)

NBA Street Vol 2 (PS2) - $19.99

Another thing I saw was NHL 2004 for PS2 was not on the racks but on the ground behind the glass case. I thought it would be on clearance since I found most games that were on sale were also on the ground. So I asked the clerk to ring it up but it was still $49.99. There were tons of copies too, oh well.

if possible, you should try and give us any news on any new clearance games, at your store at least. then we can cross our fingers and hope for the best at the ones in our own respective areas.

i don't know if target actually fills anyone (being the employees) in on the markdowns, though, since usually i get massive "huh?" when i buy a clearance game.

Man. My freaking Target goes about as low as dpatel's does. Midnight Club 2 Xbox for $20.98 and Def Jam Vendetta and Mortal Kombat: DA for $13 each. Not bad but I wish I could find the prices you all are posting which are usually $3-7 less. I usually have to wait a few weeks for them to go down in price again. Kinda sucks but oh well.

Is there any specific time to look for these games? I have heard that tues evening is when target usually finishes marking down all of their prices.

Does it matter on time of year?

I finally got mine, for $75, that's 50% off 149! I'm so glad I waited, scoped out which store had a couple left for them to go lower this week. Thank you so much to the person in this forum who mentioned that they were on clearance. YAAY!

Has anyone had a situation where you bring in a barcode to scan and it comes up with the clearance price, but when you get the game and the cashier scans it at the register, the original higher price comes up? I haven't really checked my local target stores for these deals, and I just wanted to ask if something like this ever happened to anyone.
