Saw a 250gb Xbox 360 for $287.97. The black PSP-GO was still stickered at $99.97. The PSP-3000 was MSRP at my local store, but I've seen it on clearance at other stores. Anyone see a price yet?

Off topic, but the PS2 has hit clearance at BB. It's still $89.99 but it's still in the clearance cycle.

I was just at one last night. They are still sellling games.


What I guess I was trying to say, was that they will 'soon' no longer be selling video games. Eg: I asked them, "Are you guys not going to be selling games anymore?", Each employee stated "No, we aren't going to be selling video games anymore."

Yes, they are still selling games (at present) but I would suspect that by by August-ish, they will have unloaded everything and by 2013 (at the latest) no longer have games on the shelves.

As for Sears no longer selling games, I'm leaning towards that being true, since the store up in DeWitt(NY) on Tuesday had 90-95% of their games on clearance.


I am 100% 'confident' that Sears will no longer be selling video games. Several months ago, I overheard a couple of employees saying, "I don't know if we are going to be selling video games anymore." Last week, I spoke with the same employees and they stated, "We will not be selling video games anymore."

I wouldn't think this is exclusive to my area (Charleston, SC), as these stores do pretty well (financially)/are not in lieu of closing or anything. I am am 99.9% 'confident'/'convinced' (though I have no crystal ball) that all Sears stores will no longer be selling them...the writing is on the wall(s) (or lacktherof, if you've been in a Sears lately), in my opinion.

Ah, gotta love Google Shopping and how when you click on "sort low to high pricing" it NEVER actually puts it in that order and it's still seemingly random.

Which side of PA are you talking about?
The ones around Pitt are bogus as of the last few months:cry:


It would be around northeastern, central PA. Actually I just did a search on google and found a list - I think it may have been the Pottstown Sears that was closing that they sent all of the games to.

Last week's list I posted at 4:47 so if it doesn't update in the next half hour, either very few things dropped in price, the drop doesn't go into affect until next Friday, or Google Shopping is taking longer than normal.

edit:

Has anyone actually been to Sears and can they VERIFY that the prices are different than they were last month? Google Shopping hasn't updated yet so I'm thinking that there was NO price drop this week. Maybe they went back to their old schedule of the first Friday of the month that falls on a full week.

I scanned a handful of stuff, but most I was interested in was now locked up in the case as almost everything is now in the cases since the number of games left is significantly less. Everything I scanned was the same as it was previously. I didn't see any price stickers from this month out though. So, either there were very minimal price drops or they haven't been enacted yet. Went ahead and picked up 4000 XBL points for $40 just cause I need more points and rarely find deals on them. 20% off is better than nothing.

From what the managers in the electronics dept told me, Sears will no longer be selling videogames. No reason given, other than I could imagine them not being profitable for the company (then again, with the state they're in- what is?).

Unfortunately, our store sucks and would rather return older games/handhelds (like the PSP Go) to the warehouse than mark them down, so I don't expect many further clearance sales.

swung by sears on my way to watch the Avengers, they have the same old crap as a month ago, Portal 2 marked at 39.99 rang up at 29.99, what a joke.

I believe it. I've never seen anyone else buying games at Sears. A couple of times I've noticed some clearance stuff I had my eye on had vanished, but all the MSRP stuff - Assassins Creed, Call of duty etc, all just sits there in the glass cases. Nobody goes to Sears to buy games.

The only time I have seen people buy games at Sears is when other stores are out of a game that is popular and since no one buys games at Sears, they had it in stock or during the holidays

I know its irrelevant but for those that don't know pretty much every Sears location, at least here has free Wifi, that means you can look stuff up in the store if you have an iPod touch or a wifi only device.

You will need a device that can do a login though (its just a login screen with a checkbox), which the DSi can't do, but I think the 3DS can do it and I know the iPod touch can.


Thanks for the tip! Hope I remember to try that if I find a cheap game and want to see it's value and I hope the store has wifi!

Picked up a Nyko Chargestation Quad (PS3) for $2.97 at the Moorestown, NJ store (one left, albeit opened). Also had Kinect sensor TV stands for $4.97. Price tags were handwritten.


Oh yessss....!!! That's what I want! Going to check a store and see if I find it! Thanks! :)

Yeah I believe that Sears has decided to phase out their games section. None of my managers know what is going on nor do they know if they are phasing out the game section. They are still selling consoles and handhelds at a steady pace at my store.

This is most likely what is happening. There's so much confusion in management (new manager in Brand Central) I'm not sure what is happening right now. Sears hasn't really told us what is going on at our store. I tell customers that the video game section is phasing out though.

Also off topic but Shop Your Way Rewards will require an email in order to earn points. I think they switch over to the new method in June.

I mentioned this in an earlier post, but a manager said that Sears is leaving the videogame sales to K-mart, which is both sad and amazing on many different levels.

Yeah, this is about the only time I have ever seen people buy games or electronics at Sears unless its a super hot item that is sold out everywhere else or its the holidays and they are picking up games along with children's clothing as gifts. I have basically never seen anyone buy any electronics except for televisions and television accessories, and of course once you pick out your TV its either not in stock or they can't find it. One time I saw an old lady buy a Zune but that was several years ago.

Stopped by a sears today and no price drops happened this weekend, maybe next weekend as someone else said? Unusual but sears has never liked to follow their own patterns.

Anyway, did manage to pick up EA Sports Active 2 for $12.97 - $1.30 (10% sears friends and family promo) - $5.00 (your way sears rewards credit posted this weekend) = 7 and change out the door. Not bad, but lets hope for some decent drops soon.

It's normal. Sears used to price drop the first Friday that fell on a full week.
