I know this may need to go in the clearance thread but I thought this deal was so good it had to be brought up so everyone would see it. I was at the Midland, MI Target looking through the clearance games and I stumbled upon the MW3 Hardened Edition on clearance for $49.98! It was for 360 and I didn't see a PS3 version either. This may be YMMV. I guess maybe they are clearancing out stuff to make room for black friday. They also had Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 for $5.98, Red Faction: Armageddon for $8.98, and lots of other titles for $8.98.

Wow. Nice find. It's been sold out locally as far as I can tell from the stock checker.

Yeah that is pretty insane. Buy that and sell on ebay would be what I would do.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I found one of these (Target Clearance) actually at Goodwill for $50 a few days ago. I thought I got lucky but when I brought it home, the disc was completely ruined and all the codes were used. Maybe I'll actually have better luck getting it directly from Target!

make sure it's sealed! I recall someone guy mentioning he found a used/returned/open box one (at Target I believe). He told the manager he'd buy it if he could verify that the codes worked. Elite and Founder codes were gone lol. This might have been Jimmie (some CAG I see posting in BB threads often)

Good deal!

I just hate Target's spider holders.

Ruins perfectly nice collector edition boxes.

FML and the hell I went thru for this. Wonder if I should try to PM the receipt and see if it dropped in that stores system..but I doubt it, it'd be just my luck. Only played 2 hours of this game. probably won't touch it again w/ SR the 3rd, NFS the Run (just ordered), and some others that I'm way more into..

I may have to check target sometime for Red Faction but that is a heck of a steal for hardened, and well if you don't plan to keep it, you can make a few bucks off it.

^ It's ok, you'll get the CAG jargon as you stay here longer. It means "your mileage may vary" which means not everyone can get on this deal because clearance is at the discretion of the store.

I know it means Your Mileage May Vary, but to me for CAG it makes more sense for it to mean "Your Market May Vary" since clearance games are different prices in different regions/markets.

Couldn't you take it back to activision, since we are definitely with 30-90 days of the titles release?

Yes, I actually think it does give you the maps on both systems. The Elite membership is tied to an email account separate from LIVE/ PSN and you have to link to LIVE/ PSN the first time you use it.

One day I will test this when I get another PS3 copy.

Nice and all, but percentage wise not different that regular Target clearance. Just seems like a better deal on such an expensive item to start with.

I'm gonna chalk this up to "extremely lucky find." My store in a relatively decent sized market only got 2 copies per platform.

Was an extremely lucky find, my local target only has a lot of junk games. Picked up HawX 2 and a few other games for 5 bucks, so at least my trip wasnt a total waste. Hopefully other ppl are more lucky than I am
