Does anyone know what percent off the CC at the HIP is at now? I've had my eyes on some Blu Rays and PS2 games.


I went earlier this week. Games were 20% off with used being 30% off.

I'm going back today to see what deals I can get.

Just got back from the Norridge CC again. All games and systems were 30% off and used 40%. Blu-ray and DVDs were 30%.

Checked out the Schaumburg CC yesterday. Games still only 30% off MSRP. Decent selection left but still too pricey.
They still had quite a few rock band full kits and gh:aerosmith's left. Unless they were hiding them thats about all the accessories they had left, a few strategy guides left also.

I was at the CC in Berwyn near North Riverside Park Mall (Harlem and Cermak) and they're still only at 20-30% off stuff. I overheard an employee say they'll be gone a week from this Wednesday, but I can't confirm that.

Sparse? I dunno. It wasn't as destroyed as the Village Crossing CC near the end, that's for sure. I remember seeing a bunch of Guitar Hero and Rock Band guitar boxes/sets, XBL 1 month cards, crappy PS2 selection, overpriced PC software (altho 30% off the new stuff ain't that bad). I looked at PC memory, monitors, peripherals, TVs, but nothing stood out. Also, I had to pee and their restrooms were closed. :-#

In related news, I hit a bunch of Gamestops over the weekend and grabbed a bunch of old PC titles for $5 and less apiece. Call of Cthulu, Europa Universalis Rome, PREY, Guild 2 Pirates, Gothic 3, Sword of the New World, and Rag Doll Kung-fu. The last 2 were $2.50. Blew my e-rewards giftcards.

I doubt it. Selection's only gonna get worse, and I don't think they'll drop the prices on games any further. Although I didn't look at the 360/DS stuff.

Just a heads up that the CC on Elston bumped up it's clearance % today - Games 40% off now and still a decent selection of stuff (no accessories or systems though, just games.)

Going to stop by there after my class in the morning. I'm in need of point cards.

Games are 40% off at the CC by the HIP as well. They had a bunch of 12+1 XBLA cards (clamshell), but no points I could see. I had a bunch of nice pickups... I'll update later.

heads up- the walmart in Forest Park, IL had a bunch of $10 video games for all systems. they weren't very good, but were all $10. Spider Man 3, NBA Ballers for PS3. Napoleon Dynamite for DS. Nothing spectacular. There were also a few Wii Fits and Wiis in the glass case with the other Wii stuff.

I went Thursday night, snagged a High Def cable for the wii/360/ps3. Saw like 3 guys running around flipping thru games like craaazy. I spoke to an employee though and he said they were staying open until March 31st. But judging from what was left in the store(nothing), it didn't look like they'd have anything left past Feb 31st.

when you say there was nothing left do you mean games or in general? because when I was there , also in the evening, there were tons of games at least.

In general, the way games used to be set up, was that the entire back room to the left was games. where that glass case with the higher end games was, that whole section was gaming stuff. and now it's just that one section that used to be CDs. But the store period was picked pretty clean. A week ago, they had like 4 times as many games, and literally 100 Nyko Perfect Shots that I was hoping would make it to 50%, but were all gone Thursday.

I think a pretty fair price is $400. I have all the original packaging saved for the components. You would also be able to give it a try prior to purchasing it. PM with any questions. I'm not going to take any trades for this.

WOW, what a difference a few days make! I went back to the Berwyn, IL Circuit City store and it was a mess, as a previous poster had mentioned. The games were in shambles and everything was mixed together BUT the glass case was still pretty full with games in the back of the store, gears 2, mirrors edge, resistance 2, endware, prince of persia and some special editions of fallout for the PC and 360. Also a couple of special editions for saints row 2, 1 for sure was for the ps3 but couldn't tell what the other one was.

Also still had quite a few PC games so theres that! Supposedly this store will be open for the long run so maybe they will be restocked at some point.

Game accessories - they had a ton of 360 controllers, cables and remote controls but ALL the point cards were gone. I couldn't believe it!!!! Oh well!!!!

ps3 - controllers and cables. didn't look to close though so they might have had other stuff.

I stopped by the store on Irving Park/Kedzie today. I saw a GH III bundle for $15.97 and Rock Band bundle for $54.97. Unfortunately, I didn't think to check which system they were for.

Crazy prices, though.

So.. I went to the HIP CC and the games are getting sparse. No titles that I'm not willing to wait til the 50% mark for.

My other local CC had a nice selection of games... in fact while I were leaving, they were stocking DS games; GH:OT and and GH: Decades with grip and a bunch of other titles. Needless to say I'm taking another trip up there soon.
