Final Fantasy 13. Almost every store gave a gift card with purchase.


I'm not sure you can compare FF13 to Starcraft 2 ... sure Final Fantasy used to command big fanfare back in the PS1 era and somewhat in the PS2 era but it's definitely in a state of decline as far as franchises go. Not to mention the mixed reviews and reception of 13. I think alot of retailers saw that and started trying to entice people ... but imho I really don't see Starcraft 2 getting massive discounts at launch.

Ah, another Target thread already. I should really browse through the other sections of Target for their other clearance items, their men's section occasionally has some ok stuff too.

Nothing to see here, move along!

how come some games just dissapear from the video games section???

i was looking for motorstorm AE, dragons age, resident evil 5, PS3 EYE CAMERA, and nothing around any of my local targets (3 different targets)

ps3 eye camera - theres something about these cameras (with the PS motion controller coming out), ive been searching walmart, target, kmart, TRU, (BB has it at full price) trying to find it on clearance, kmart HAD it for 1.99 but OOS, but no one has any in stock, what gives????

do stores really just take products off shelves just so no one can buy them????

Don't you just love it when stupid people think you're stupid.....

Picked up a Logitech 720 remote today for $37.48 in Richmond, Va. Haven't used a universal remote before but will be excited if it works as well as everyone says.

I found an "AS IS" $2.56 price sticker on a new Iron Man 2 CONCEPT SERIES, ARMOR TECH, SHOCKWAVE MISSION figure. Originally $9.99. Don't know if there was a problem with this one or not. They blotted out the barcode and sku'd the price tag.988030870004989552 is what it read.

missed out on some great clearance games at target in west co. they had :ps3: 7.98 007 Quantum of Solace, Dirt 2 14.98, Transformers Revenge of the Fallen 7.98, Fall out 3 7.98, Star Wars Unleashed 4.98.. :360: Gears 2 7.98, IL-Sturmovik 7.98, Fall out 3 7.98, and a few others. Totally wished i had stopped by when they had Dirt 2 on clearance. Asked the worker to check for games and was told they won't be getting any more in as they were clearance items. :cry:

On clearance rack I saw :ps2: Friends Trivia 2.98, Lego Batman 4.98, Lego Indian Jones 4.98, Motorstorm artic 7.98, Bigs 2 7.98, cabela outdoor adventure 7.98, star trek (price forgot). ps3 component cable 5.98, ps2/xbox composite 5.98, ps2 composite 5.98, ps2 silver controller 6.98.

Actually that's not true. While the game has gotten mixed reviews, it was never expected to do poorly. As a matter of fact, it was extremely successful. It sold faster than any other final fantasy game in history. It sold a million copies in only five days.

It may just be that someone came along right as the games/items were put on clearance or they just forgot to put them back on the shelf after pulling them.

If your store is one of the ones redoing their electronics section with the new plastic prison setup, then perhaps they moved all of them to the back to accomodate the revamp. You could try asking about particular items you're interested in.

I think Sears may have the PS Eye on clearance there. Someone found it marked $11.97 there. But there's only been ONE reported sighting of it for that price.

Usually when that happens the product is not on file in our systems, so the Price Change team creates labels for NOF product. Sometimes we get stuff that's supposed to go to other stores. Once I had a box of Great Value crackers and I was laughing at myself if I tried to stock it on the floor...heheh

2 of my stores did that yesterday... On the positive side, it forced them to clear out their back room and I got a wireless MS mouse for $5 and a couple of laptop bags at 75% off. Also picked up the NYKO media port extender for PS3 for $3.74... The Monster Component cables finally dropped to $5.xx, but the 360 and PS3 ones had already been bought at $10.xx...

Wow ... really ... because I found this website that's selling Demon's Souls for $2.50 ... I'm going to make another thread about it ... if I can sort through all the other Demon's Souls threads currently on the 1st page ;)



Wha...? Where was this for $2.50? Hard to believe that's legit.

I stopped by my local Target with the plastic prison. I noticed that :ps3: SingStar:Queen had a a regular white shelf tag for $9.98. Also, somehow all the Bayonettas disappeared from that store so I'm crossing my fingers and hoping these will reappear and be on clearance.

Therefore, I think we better not just run through the plastic prison, but take a close look at the price tags because you might miss some good clearance game deals if you assume everything is located in the clearance endcap.

I like that new system actually. It allows you to check out the case front and back without having to ask an employee to open the case so you could check out the games.

It also keeps the stashers at bay, since from what I've seen in other Target stores with this setup they keep ALL of the games in one place and don't put out the clearance titles on the endcaps, which is what allows people to hide shit in the first place.

So, well played Target, well played.:applause:

The Targets I've been to that had the plastic prisons still had clearance endcaps. (Of course, that's back when Targets still had video game clearance. ;))

I don't understand the distaste for the new style. I think people are taking the coincidence of new layout with lack of clearance as being cause and effect. But all the Targets I've been to have been barren no matter what the layout.

And just for some perspective, in the past few months it was only the new layout stores where I found:
1. Demons Souls on clearance
2. Modern Warfare 2 Hardened on clearance
3. Mass Effect 2 Collectors weeks after release
4. DSi bundle on clearance
5. White PS2 bundle on clearance.

So the sky isn't falling. Or at least it's not falling because games in tethered cases.

^^ Wow, DSi and white PS2 bundles on clearance. You have some pretty awesome Target clearances in your area.

I remember when people reported seeing :ps3: Demons Soul on clearance. Those were all bought at MSRP or at 30% off in my area. There was no way I'd be able to pick up a copy at $14.98 as some other CAGs reported in this thread.

Found a Resident Evil 5 PS3 for $20.98 in the housewares section @ Plymouth Meeting Target. Looks like it was hid by someone, but I put it back on the video game clearance shelf. If anyone is looking for this game, its there.

Just snagged two copies of :360: Beatles: Rock Band for $20. Right after grabbing them an employee came around and said he was going to pick them up when his shift ended in 10 minutes. Felt bad for a moment, but not really.

Now to find a cheap mic…

Like Salty, the one Target in my area with these cases still have the clearance endcaps, but for whatever reason I have far more luck finding stuff at this store than the ones without these cases. Unfortunately it isn't exactly close by otherwise I'd make it out there more often.

The only store I ever saw with the new setup before my two local ones remade their game sections kept all of the clearance games locked up in individual 'prison' type cases or at least they did so while they were higher priced($30-40).

That's why I thought that the remodeled stores did away with the endcaps for games.

This may be a long shot, but is anyone here from the central Florida area? Also if you are, have you checked out if any of these cheap prices are REALLY at the local Target stores? I ask because Target is really out of my way and might check it out if they are selling the games listed at these prices.
