Try this.
- if they've put Blur's 50% price on a ticket on a shelf (22.97) take the ticket from the shelf
- get an employee to follow you to the clearance table where Blur is (or whatever clearance game available)
-22.97 is the lowest price so point out that you should get 1/2 off of that (even though its obvious they were just pre-emptively providing the 50% off of the 39.99 on the shelf ticket)

Worked for me and I got Bioshock 2 and Blur for $8.73 and $11.48 respectively. (Also she gave me Crackdown 2 for 1/2 off $17.47 but I think I got lucky with that)

What really drives me crazy is that those clearances is that they don't match up from store to store. At one place you can find a game that is 9.97 and it might be 29.99 at the second store !
YMMV indeed !

You might want to know that I saw DJ Hero (1) bundled with the turntable for 30$. I still don't know if it is a good deal but it is tempting...

Staples at Morningside in Scarborough is pretty much cleared out. Call of Duty 2, Lost Planet 2, and Professor Layton and te Diabolical Box. Saw one copy of Lego Rock Band for PS3 for $3.97. There was also Resident Evil 5 (360) for $10 and Red Dead Redemption (both systems) for $39.97.

Staples in Oliver Square (Edmonton) had a few decent titles available earlier this afternoon. Crackdown 2 and Lost Planet 2 (PS3/360) were the main titles. They also had The Saboteur for $9.xx for PS3 as well. I didn't pick up anything, but was tempted by Crackdown 2.

Thanks Craig, don't suppose you saw Saboteur for 360 as well?

I managed to grab Alan Wake and Dragon Age Origins (PS3) at the Heartland Staples in Mississauga. I checked a few other Stores, Argentia, and Appleby line. Neither had any of the games on the list.
I truly wanted Heavy Rain but sadly I could not find it anywhere. For anyone near Heartland they had one copy of Dragon Age Origins for the 360 left as of this afternoon.

I know a lot of stores don't have their game stock on display because too much gets stolen. My advice is to ask someone who works there if they have the game you're looking for in stock, it's probably in the backstore.

Did you ask them to scan the price?

what do you think of my chances calling the stores I've tried calling places like Wal-Mart and long story short it doesn't work.

Between the 2 stores here I found the clearance games split between up to 3 locations at once - the normal aisle for games, designated "clearance table" of various items, rack just with clearance games, tables set up for generally regular price nicely displayed holiday merchandise with the games standing on end, and some (misplaced?) on the "$20 value game" rack.

At first none had the correct price, then they fixed some while others remained right beside with incorrect tags, sometimes identical titles with different prices

So I'd take a good look around

Found multiples of the following PS3 games in the big bin near the entrance at Highway 7/Weston in Woodbridge:
Lego Rock Band ($3.97! Still didn't pick it up tho)
Bioshock 2 ($17.97)
Dragon Age Origins ($17.97)
MAG ($17.97)
UFC something ($??)

Lots of Wii, PS2, PSP, DS and 360 games, but sorry didn't browse them as I was in a rush. And no Heavy Rain :(

oh man oh man. i was completely shook. Over on the gamecube side many of us use NGC instead of GCN. I thought you found an original Pikmin. For 4 bucks I'll keep on eye out on the new version. Never played the original anyway.

I enjoyed the crud out of pikmin 1 + 2. If you'd like I can sell it to you at cost + shipping, I really only wanted the club nintendo code from it :lol: have the originals on GCN anyhow. Let me know.

Why is there no Pikmin 2 NPC? I thought that was coming so I sold off my GCN copies. :-(

They probably didn't sell too well, though I do recall miyamoto confirming a pikmin 3 is in the works.

yeah but how bloody long ago was that with no word since. I'll get to you on the Pikmin. As much as I'd prefer to play the cube version I think it would make a great showcase game. All the kids just want to play Smash Bros and Modern Warfare.. well none of them are older then 14 and the only other age appropriate games i have are Bomberman, Galaxy and Dokapon.
