The MLB 11 price mistake was pretty wide spread so if you happen to be out or going to Target anyway, recommend giving it a shot. Once the MLB 11 word got out, availability dried up pretty quickly as I remember.

Ironically this happened once again to a Sony published game.

This could possibly happen again for Uncharted 3.

Interesting to say the least.....

So basically this isn't even a regional deal, it's an extreme YMMV deal that could very well only affect one store. Man, I got flamed pretty hard when I posted one of these before...

No, not necessarily. The last time this happened (again, with MLB 11), it was spread across numerous Targets around the country.

Yup... These are the same threadcrapping noobs who are running out to Target now to see if it's real, then won't post anything if they find it.

All of you guys posting "lol he bought infamous 1 for $30" and "lul he prob bought 2 copies of infamous 1 xD" need to brush up on your deal history. When MLB The Show 11 came out, Target accidentally put it out on clearance for $29.98. It wasn't really regional, either, a LOT of people got in on the deal. The OP didn't immediately provide proof, but he later did, and a lot of CAG's went to their store and got in on the deal, too.

So I'm not immediately writing this off. I'll definitely check out my Target today.

Ah, so it has the POTENTIAL to be a fairly wide spread deal. I guess it could be like the first time when DA: O UE went on clearance, how it was a mistake but officially came down from corporate to start the clearance cycle. I'm guessing all it would take would be a few accidental mouse clicks by somebody at corporate to start the clearance ball rolling on anything.

I'm starting to doubt if their is as much money in prerelease resale. Their are at least six auctions with sellers who are able to ship it today and as more get put up I think the value will drop. They'll defiantly fetch more money then retail but in November I had buyers offering $150+ for the vanilla copy of Black Ops if they could get it the weekend before release date.

That could have just as easily been from the Subway promo. That is how I got my 2 copies...

Black Ops was a lot more in demand than Infamous 2. There are a lot of people who only play call of duty games.

I'm not going to bother checking for this, there is no way it won't be dead by now.

Yep, that would be an accurate way of looking at it. I wish I knew why it affects some stores and not others though. With both that DA example you provided and the MLB example, it doesn't appear it was region based. Even Targets within the same district would not be consistent with one another.

Again, all those could easily have been from the Subway promo earlier this year. One CAG member claims he got something like 6 copies of inFamous 2 he won...cant remember the exact number, check the trade section. I had 2 copies until I just recently finalized a deal to trade 1 to a fellow CAG.


EDIT: If you look, some of the auctions for inFamous 2 even show the Subway letter they got for winning the game! Sheesh, its obvious now...

I still don't understand your point. I was referring to the resale value pre release date regardless if they came from Subway or Target.

If your point was that you don't think the OP got this from Target then you obviously don't follow the threads on this site

I work for Target part time, and as far a my store here in Chicago we have not received the game. We typically don't get the game until 3-4 days prior to release, not only that but unless this is a corporate mistake the register will not let an item to be sold ahead of street date.

I must have misunderstood your point. I thought you were pointing to those auctions as proof that the game was released early by Target. If that is incorrect than it is clearly my misunderstanding and I apologize for any hardships you may incur as a result of my incorrect comments.

If it's a clearance like The Show 11 was, they see the clearance sticker and think that it's out of the system and force it through. Either that, or there's a new UPC they enter that isn't locked.

$29.56 isn't even a clearance price...shouldn't it be more like $29.98?
