picked up Sherlock Holmes: The Mystery of the Mummy (DS) for $7.48

dcpi 207-02-0692


I picked this up a couple of weeks ago for $14.98. I know it would not last for another price drop since there were only two copies. Its a decent game, but nothing I would pay full price for.

Definitely not worth anything over $7.50. It's a fairly short game that has no replay value at all. And the four statues room is retarded.

They're building houses out there for people who commute to DC...a 70 mile commute is nothing new around here.


Oh, sure. We have one guy in my office who commutes all the way from West Virginia. Every single day. It's pretty insane. But, that's for work -- again, I couldn't see someone driving all the way out there just to get something from Target clearance. They'd end up spending way more in gas and time than they'd end up actually saving on the games.

Did you actually check the prices at your Targets? I found a set for $62.48 yesterday on a set that I know for a fact had NO clearance tag at all on it and a shelf tag that said $249.99 on Monday...

Question, I called the Target in North Dartmouth, MA and asked if they had Killzone 2 and Demons Souls. The kid said they had Killzone 2 @ $59.99(lulz) and they did not have Demon's Souls. Now, when I call, will they just give me the retail price, or the clearance price? Could there be a copy of Killzone 2 in the clearance section for $14.98? I'm aware that it's YMMV, and every store is different. Has anyone had any experience with this particular store? Do they tend to put clearance up a lot?

Generally speaking, don't call them. If it is on clearance, you just may be alerting an employee of a low price and they decide to pick up the last copy and just tell you there are none.

Steve, you're an idiot. Not everyone is a hoarder.

Although I agree on one point -- never call on a deal. Always go and scan it yourself/put it in the scanner yourself.

Have you checked Best Buy for one yet? They dropped the Endwar bundles to $19.99 for both PS3 and 360 a little while ago.

No.. but I definitely will... $20 is a good price for that bundle right?

Both the PS3 and 360 headsets go for $40-50 each, so I'd say yes.;):D Although people have reported having issues with the 360 headset, as I guess the battery in them have lost too much of a charge to properly charge up initially.

I think a bunch of folks who found the bundles had to have them sent in to MS, though the PS3 ones seem to be fine.

BTW, you can enter in the SKU# in place of any other SKU when you search for stock. Don't be discouraged if it comes up as not in stock though, as I think if a store has only 1-3 of an item it'll show up as out of stock.

How many clearance endcaps do your Targets have guys?

One? or two? For video games.

You talking about Greenbriar? I saw that lone Fallout there earlier in the week. I originally went to the games end cap and found nothing. All of the good stuff had been moved to the books and movies clearance end cap. I thought it was funny that someone had placed children's books in front of all of the games to half assed hide them. I obviously moved all the kids books.

Forgot to mention in this thread, I saw 2 copies of Mass Effect 2 CE @ the Target around Oceana. I bought one earlier in the week but there was still one there as of Tuesday hidden in the glass case at the bottom because the package didn't fit in their new zip-cord style cases.

Side note, my girlfriend was inspired by my clearance finds and started looking around and found some Ed Hardy shirts and a purse on clearance. I think they were $55 shirts marked down to $13. Ultimately, she opted not to buy them in favor of not being a douche.

They could have them in the back. Did you check every shelf in the PS3/360 section? The one I found was behind another game bundle(one of the Buzz games, I think), so you may have to move shit around to find them.

Unfortunately none of mine show up as having it in stock. So the PS3 version comes with an official Sony Bluetooth adapter and the Xbox version comes with an official Microsoft wireless headset? That's really cool.

Yeah. I managed to find ONE of the PS3 ones about a month ago. It was still marked $89.99 too. The game is worth nothing anywhere already, but the headsets more than make up for that.;)
