I went back and got Demon's Souls for $41.98 (Huntersville, NC). If I hate this game I'm making a blog post about to shout down each and every one of you.

Closest Target has 63 (I counted, for fun) Guitar Hero DS bundles (with the guitar attachment) for $29.98 ... I wonder how low they'll go.
The other interesting thing (maybe someone can explain): This store only had a handful of said product in the lock-up before this week. Do Targets ship clearance stuff to other locations for the purpose of selling off markdowns?


Your store is probably just getting wiped out by people and then sometimes when shipments come a few random games can be mixed in or someone may have backstocked poorly and a stash was discovered, the only thing that gets shipped out from a store is salvage items (things that have been on final clearance and still havnt sold) or some charge back items.

It is the same thing with my Target. 50 copies of GodFather II appeared out of no where.

That would've been nice for the old GS 20 credit sale a lil while back.

I noticed that TV stands are beginning to get clearanced out. I'm going to keep my eye on them, I could use one sturdier than the 25 dollar ikea one I'm using now.

Thanks for the info. I usually go over to the Target in Nampa across the street from Bestbuy. Games there usually don't make it to 75%.


we'll have to keep this updated. anything you're really looking for?

Bought yesterday:

:ps3: Guitar Hero: Metallica - $19.98
:ps3: Skate 2 - $19.98 *
:ps3: Star Wars: The Force Unleashed - $9.98

Bought today:
:360: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (Hardened Edition) - $55.98 **

Also spotted in central Ohio:
:ps3: LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventures - $9.98
:360: LEGO Rock Band - $41.98


There were titles on other systems that I didn't pay too much attention to (including PS2, DS and Wii).

* returned for a refund today after reading online reviews
** placeholder for now; hoping for a price drop in the next two weeks, so that I can get a price adjustment


Target gives price adjustments on clearence games?

They sometimes will let you do a return at the higher price and rebuy it at the lower price. Not always.

It also works like this:
1) Buy item X copy #1 at price Y.
2) Buy item X copy #2 at cheaper price Z.
3) Return item X copy #1 with receipt showing price Y.

:360: Tony Hawk Ride for 83.xx in Garner NC. Hasn't been marked down at any of the other Targets I've been to this week.

Even if this hella awesome hunka plastic hangs around 'til 75% it's still too rich for my blood.

Haha, if you really do hate hard games, then you might hate Demon's Soul. In my opinion, it is a hard game with lots of dying and trial and error. Then again, the last time I played the game was during Halloween when it was set in pure black world tendency (enemies are harder and you are weaker, but they drop better items).

Picked up a copy of the new PS3 Karaoke Revolution with microphone for $7.46. It was labeled "as-is" since there was a very minor tear in the outer plastic. GREAT DEAL.

Good find! Really wish I could find that in Northern VA. I found the PS2 version but I want the extra songs (I'm a big Queen fan) and camera support. Ironically, I used to live in the Pembroke Pines area.

:-)

What he said. Its supposed to be the hardest good game ever, like earlier iterations of Ninja Gaiden. Dying is a very active part of the game, and you need to understand that you will die, a lot.

I took a 4 mile trek from the auction I was at today(walking, no less) and I found the Hardened Edition of COD:MW2 for PS3 for $55.98 and a copy of Demon's Souls for $41.98.

I'm probably not going to keep them, since I'm still hoping to find a copy of MW2 from TJ MAXX/Marshall's, unless I can get them bumped to 50% off at the one Target that does that when you return clearance games.

What amazes me is that I live in a city of 76,000, yet a town of 7,500 has copies of both games and my city's Target never even had Demon's Souls.:roll:

They had alot of other clearance games in this same store as well, including the 360 version of COD:MW2 Hardened Edition and some older games for the 360 on clearance(Darkness, The Club).

For those who might be in the area, this was the Mechanicsburg, PA Target on the Carlisle Pike and they still had 2-3 copies of each game I bought.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Went to Albany, CA (near Berkeley). Nothing really worthwhile on clearance (what they had is probably more expensive than what's on amazon...).

There are two copies of the Metroid Prime Collection left, albeit at full price...

Great find. I'm in need of a lot of poster frames. Do you remember if they had any other sizes on clearance?

I have 11 autographed posters I've been dying to frame and hang up. I don't care if they are cheap as hell, as long as I can avoid piercing them with thumbtacks. :lol:
