Went into our local Sears (Jonesboro, AR location, in case you were wondering) to pick up some pots and pans on clearance yesterday. While there, they announced a sale on clearance video games: $4.97 apiece, no matter what their original clearance price was. We ended up getting 2 copies of Battlefield 3 (:360:), Rage (:360:), Red Faction: Armageddon (:360:), Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock (:360:), Vanquish (:360:), Crysis 2 (:360:), Mortal Kombat (:360:), Infamous 2 (:ps3:), Uncharted 2: Game of the Year Edition (:ps3:), Dragon Quest IX (:ds:), and Pokemon Platinum (:ds:), all for about $60 before tax.

We went back today, and while a lot of the better selection was gone by now, we picked up Halo: Reach (:360:), Dance Central (:360:), Star Fox 64 3D (:3ds:), and Jeopardy! (:ds:), all for around $20. Jeopardy may not be the most exciting game, but dammit, I don't think we're ever going to get a version of XBOX 360, so I bit. Dance Central also came with a code for 240 MS points, so it pretty much paid for itself already.

WOW

That's awesome.

Totally amazing. My store has a ton of games locked away in the cases I would love to grab at $5 each. But with my luck, an employee will snatch 'em up long before I even hear about such a deal....

I've got some buddies up in Jonesboro (I'm in Little Rock). Did they have anymore copies of Battlefield? I can get someone up there to grab one for me if they do.

Picked up Flingsmash at $9.97. I know it's not the best price it was offered at but I think it was worth it for the extra remote.

Didn't they (Sears) have a pretty ridiculous Clearance Sale about this time last year (around July 4th)? I know they are ceasing the sale of all things video games (don't know about consoles) but the timing of some of the prices I have seen on here the past couple days is reminiscent of that sale last year.

Goddamn, I would've too. When they had yard games and digital picture frames for 97 cents each, we bought all of them and gave them out for Christmas.

Well, I got the okay to do 50% off the items on my VOM table. This includes stuff like psp go's, dj hero bundles, etc. it be a lot better if I could just make my store do 50% off all clx games. (And my store has been behind on the clx cycles. My go's are still 99.97)

I went to the niagra falls blvd Sears and as usual found nothing. I rarely go there as there are two indy game stores literally around the corner. I imagine they clean out the good stuff regularly.

Sorry for not responding quicker, but it wouldn't matter: when I went back the next day to pick up those last couple of days, all the worthwhile games like BF 3 were already gone. Multiple copies of Halo: Reach were about the cream of the crop then.

Yes they did. I was thinking that last night that most of the games are in the almost but not quite good enough price range and they're priming for another swarm.

Probably just coincidence. According to the employees/managers here, they've gotten memos from corporate about taking extra percentages off (at each store manager's discretion), and they're just trying to get rid of remaining clearance games. After this, they're only carrying consoles and new releases. One employee said that they can't compete with other stores on older releases, and most of their videogame business is from people buying games the day/week of release because they don't want to wait in line at gamestop or best buy. So there you have it.

Oh, and the McKinley Mall store in Blasdell, NY, is down to an extra 25% off, too, and said they might go 50% sometime in the next couple weeks to get rid of what doesn't sell. I bit on Castlevania ps3 for around $15 after the extra 25% off. Not bad (have been waiting on that to drop further).

Went to Sears a few days ago and there were some games reduced to $4.99. Most of the good ones were probably gone, though. I picked up a PS3 Darksiders that looked to be resealed. It had no y-folds and the shrink wrap was torn. I'll exchange it at another Sears.


I believe all copies of Darksiders for PS3 were shrink wrapped instead of Y Folds. Not sure why.

I hit 2 Sears over the weekend trying to find a copy of Pokemon: Black (which is down to $19.97) but both stores gave me the same story:
"some guy came in and bought like 10 copies!" :cry:
Oh well.

One store had 99% of its games on clearance, but everything of interest was still in the $15-20 range with no further discount.
They even had XBLA point cards in clamshells on clearance but the discount was only 2 cents. :roll:
I'd probably head back there if they do a "50% off clearance prices sale" or something though.

I'm uber surprised that sears even holds 10 copies of any game... I can't imagine them selling that many!!

Not true (on the Oogie Games front). Them and Play N Trade have bigger fish to fry than clearance.

I openly admit Ive been hitting that Sears hard for about 5-6 years. I live so close to it that I hit it up frequently. In fact I worked there for a year almost solely to CAG it :) Its yielded me tons of good finds over the years.

I don't think these stores grab the clearance items, as I said before both of these stores have positioned themselves next to goodwill's and SA's in many area's, especially the Lockport Oogie games whom has themselves positioned directly next to a goodwill in order to ensure a steady stream of stock. Or at least that is the way I see it. This basically means for most SA's and Goodwill's in the WNY area you won't be getting anything. Oogie games also puts more stickers on their games than Gamestop which some find hard to believe but it is true. These stores are also horrendously overpriced and I refuse to shop at them. I would rather shop on ebay, and I do shop on ebay. I don't even know why people shop there when every game you would ever want is a click away on ebay for a lot less money.

As for me I only buy what is a really good deal or what I want to play for myself, so as I said before there is no way I can clean out an entire Sears by myself.

The McKinley mall is very good but honestly its not worth the drive for me since it would take me well over an hour to get there, the arcade is gone and basically the only reason I would be there is for the Sears.
