I bit on a copy of Gunstringer for $11.98 yesterday. Not a bad deal!


Even better that it includes a copy of fruit ninja also

Just don't tell us when you return it tomorrow because you don't get any responses agreeing with you. :)


I liked gunstringer. It was a quirky different game that plays easy enough for kids with some humor to it. Twisted Pixel usually makes some good games and I would call Gunstringer one of them.

But for $12, yeh I got that when it was released from BBY. Then selling the in box kinect redemption codes on eBay started and you could find them for $3

It's all like "psst! by the way, I don't want to bother you, but Batman Arkham City."

Edit: Looks like they fixed it later and it appears more normal on Amazon

Saw Fifa 13 on 3DS today, 30% off so $27.98.

Might bite if it makes 70% off, which is unlikely.

LOL...when I read that, I just assumed that there was a game that was named 10 out of 10 that I've never heard of...then I remembered the Batman AC GOTY packaging.

Saw one copy of Rayman Origins on 360 for $5 at a Toledo store (Spring Meadows).

Even though I already have it, I thought about buying it on principal alone as I never find anything good on Clearance there.

This whole argument is ridiculous. Nobody can look into the future. If every big store only had what it knew it would sell, then most stores would be half their size. Businesses take into account risks with profit margins and total inventory selection. It's obvious that many of these stores don't lose money even if they sell one item at half price.





This guy gets it. Hence why Amazon is headed in the right direction and brick and mortar stores will be a thing of the past. Thanks technology ($arcasm)

You already have it so you know it's a great game. give it to a stranger, coworker, classmate, hobo, etc.

Found an elusive $17.98 WiiU TTT2 today; it was the last copy left in the normal gaming shelves, not in clearance, marked at full $59.98. Being as it was the only copy left I thought maybe they were waiting to see if someone bit before putting it out on clearance, but something told me to find a scanner-- so after trying 4 different scanners (first touchscreen didn't work, then the buttons wouldn't call up the pad to enter the DCPI, etc) I found out it was indeed at the $17.98 price.. I nearly ran back across the store to get the game. ;)

So, just in case anyone needs reminding, if you see something that interests you ALWAYS CHECK THE PRICE SCANNERS! The "lazy"/overworked clearance worker or/overlooked-item hidden clearance items are where you score the best deals. ;)

I would definitely pick up the Show and NBA if I saw those. Perfect price points for me and my newly acquired PS3. I have never seen a good clearance game at all my time being a CAGer.

Are they forged in steel or could an employee grab one and scan it for you?

Anyone else encounter this:

A few weeks ago, my target started taking the clearance cycle games out of the plastic prison and placing them in piles on the end caps. The piles have now grown to epic proportions but none (and I mean none) of the games that have accumulated in the last month or so are being clearanced. They are full price (yes I've scanned).

They are still reducing the games that had gone on clearance previously, but none of the new additions are being reduced or tagged with clearance stickers. I'm thinking that someone is forgetting to do their job. It's really strange and becoming an eyesore.

It's encased in carbonite!

Naw, I just assumed that since it was still on shelf, it'd scan for $59.99. I'll swing by Target later and see if this is the case.

I have 3 stores that I frequent, and one of them has an end cap like you are describing, but they also have a clearance section on the next end cap. It's full of crap like full priced Metroid: Other M, etc. I occasionally scan them but they are always full price.

This happens at one store near me once or twice a year. No idea why. Eventually (like in a few months) they will eventually either go to the stockroom or back in the prison/displays.

At least two stores near me, and another one pretty far away do this. It's been like this for about half a year. Really wish those games would go on clearance, but it's just not happening. These stores are also the ones that never have much clearance.

One of the stores I visit regularly did this with Kingdom Hearts :3ds: recently.

Got Rayman Origins (360) for $5.96 Huntsville, AL store
Sims 3 (3DS) is $2.96
Fifa 2012 (Vita) is $8.96
Fifa Soccer 2012 (PS3) is $8.96

My store always marks down electronics on Mondays so I swing by on my lunch break and usually get the first look at that weeks selection. My mother-in-law is on the pricing team so she gives me a heads up on any new titles getting marked. Also, hardly anything goes below 70% off. They mark down 25%, 50%, then 70%. So if you see something at 70% off its as low as its going to get.

It's 30-50-70, used to be 30-50-75. But some here seem to be lucky with the occasional 90 on some stuff. Would love to have a relative on the pricing team. Heck, I would quit my job to be on the pricing team, but it's probably harder for them to buy clearance for themselves without suspicion than for the people they tip off.

Went to a couple local stores hoping to find maybe Fifa 2012 or Soul Silver...but nothing but a bunch of sports games or shovel ware. Did pick up Smart as (Vita) for 8.98 and Lumines Electronic Symphony (Vita) for 20.98. Anyone own these games? Are they worth the price?

Lumines is the game I've spent the most time playing on my vita...10X more than all the others combined. What's a trip is, play for a while, log some scores, and then look at the online scoreboard. It is amazing how good some of these guys are, especially on those timed games. I just don't see how someone can score that high in 30 seconds...impossible! Great game. Great Music.

Not exactly clearance, but I did find Golden Sun DS at local stores for 14.99. Couldn't find it listed on the website when I did a quick search, and amazon had one copy left for slightly cheaper at 11.xx.

Everywhere else I have seen the game at 30.00.
