Local Best Buy in Rochester, MN (north) had a 50% off video games rack near the checkout.

Mostly garbage but they had a couple of Saints Row 2 CE marked down to $30 so I snagged one. CE is still $60 here, non-CE is $50.

I asked about it since they had a bunch of others on the shelves marked full price but the manager just said they probably haven't been marked down yet. After I got home I saw a dent in the tin (which I couldn't care less about since I just wanted the game) so it was probably a scratch'n'dent markdown.

They have the same set-up at the Apple Valley, MN store. A good number of GTA IV CE and Assassin's Creed CE last time I was there a few days ago.

This should probably go in the regional thread.

A brand new BB just opened up down the road from me. I haven't been there yet. I wonder if they'd have this or it's just getting rid of old crap.

I work in a Best Buy, perhaps I can help.

clearances at Best Buy are on a store-by-store basis. What doesn't sell in that particular store may eventually be put on clearance, but it is pretty YYMV. It isn't at all a chain-wide thing like Target.

Ona side note, my store has Resistance 2 ce for $40. can anyone tell me if the artbook is any good?

Hopefully Saints Row 2 LE will drop at my store since there are around 10 per system.

I hate how they changed it to be different at each store, my local Best Buy never has clearance deals.

I miss the old standard price will be the same at all Best Buy clearances they used to do

Only decent thing at mine right now is the Eye of Judgment bundle for $35. I've snagged UT3 and some other games at 50% though.

Went to my local BBY today and they had two racks of games all 25% off one game and 50% off if you purchased two or more games. Pretty much garbage but they had a couple copies of Valkyria Chronicles. So I picked that up for $29.99 and my second game was The Simpsons for $4.99.

CE is worth it if you're a fan of the resistance world, as i am.

If not, don't bother.

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Valkyria Chronicles was in the Clearance at mine since Sunday, right after their restock of the section. $30, reduced from $60!

Also, Star Ocean: First Departure was amongst the PSP titles for 50% off as well ($15 at checkout). Last I checked on Tuesday they were almost all gone.

50% off what? $60? That's my guess, but I'm hoping it's lower.
