Hmmm... Nah ill pass... Maybe. PS3 needs some loving... Hard choice but I prefer the 360.


euro gamer says the ps3 version is better

Damn I was hoping no body would post this. I can verify that both Tomb Raider (w/steelbook) and Bioshock Infinite (also the Premium Edition) were clearanced at some Targets. The prices by me were at $42 and I was waiting for the $30 price to hit so I didn't want to post it and send out all the hoarders and flippers out that normally clean out my local targets. With both games being such highly reviewed I feel like most people will still buy them at the $42 price so that's another reason I didn't want to post it on CAG.

Now that it's posted I guess I going to be forced to hit up a bunch of Targets early tomorrow in hopes of getting the sweet $30 price.

It has a reversible cover anyways.

And it is soooo much better than the normal cover. :drool:

What a score! My super target will never do anything like that..Last i checked they had mlb 2k12 and some ds games..

You got lucky good sir..I wont buy it untill that price 6 months later from now :D I enjoyed the 1 hour trial from ps store. The metal arm melee is sick. One hour goes too fast.

My best bet is that its the first print versions of Infinite that only have Bioshock 1, and they are clearing it out...

Any west coast CAGs want to call their Targets before closing to see if this is anywhere else at all? I'm calling my store first thing in the morning because this is quite the deal...

Just go to the store, don't call.

EDIT: Looks like Wario beat me to it, while I had this window responding to a PM :D

This has happened a few times recently where Target's system borks up and puts a new release on clearance. Asura's Wrath, Resident Evil: ORC Special Edition, and Tiger Woods '13 Masters Edition off the top of my head.

Two things: It is YMMV, and they WILL fix it within a few days.

I don't care if it's because it includes the original Bioshock or because it's PSMove compatible, Sony putting the "only on PlayStation" wording on their cover art is 100% bag-o-dicks.


That is really weird. Should have said Exclusive Content Only on PS3, like below. It's definitely a little bit misleading.

for Target clearance (and other places I guess), would the clearance price show up if the game is scanned (or dcpi typed in) at a scanner?

It looks terrible against the 360's green case IMO. I opened up the case, saw the art through the plastic, pulled it out and thought the art looked great, and then big disappointment when I slide it back onto the case. If I was the type that obsessed over this kind of thing I'd probably think about putting it in a different DVD case, realize it wouldn't look right with the rest of my green 360 games, flip it back to the original art, and then stare at it out of resentment.

This post I totally agree with. Target's system is really messed up sometimes. I remember Bioshock Ultimate Rapture Edition PS3 being $21 on release date and Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed 3DS being $5 on release date. It seems this was YMMV at the store I work for.

Just a heads up guys, all clearance is YMMV at Target. I work for Target and this is definitely the first time I've seen this. Some times the clearance system will mess up and have employee ticket things accidently, in which when caught the employees have to take the stickers off and the price goes back up. This looks like one of those situations; I've seen it happen before. I wouldn't expect any other Target stores to have this too.

Anyway, awesome luck to the OP though!

I've had it since launch and didn't even notice. Mine looks like a badass Criterion now. I'm going to look through the rest of my games and see if there are any more.

I played through the game on a rental and it was so good I felt bad for not buying it.

I didn't even see a PC version. I wish I had, I hear the PC version is infinitely superior to the console versions. Probably just wait for a steam sale though.


Normally I do not buy into that very much but after watching some walkthroughs in 1080p from a ultra high PC it makes my 360 playthrough seem drab. I kind of wished I never watched it. Still looks good on consoles in comparison to a lot of stuff but man that game just popped on the PC. I love the art style.

Ugh. Sorry to hear that...but I'm happier that I got the :ps3: version now. :booty:

wow, the clearance label already. The game hasn't even been out two weeks has it?

Nice find though, I wonder if someone at that Target overlooked something. ¬¬

Why does Target clearance stuff like this? What could the purpose be to mark an item that just came out as clearance for half off?

That's nothing, at my Target, they had the Bioshock Infinite Premium Edition for the Xbox 360 for $56! Too bad I already bought the standard Bioshock Infinite for my ps3!

TIV at GameStop currently? Just seeing if it is worth it to see if I can flip them to a premium 360 copy. (Pretty sure the targets near me don't have this on clearance)

That's about an hour away from me. If I wanted it on PS3 I'd consider going there to check. I really want it for PC though...

I'm pretty sure it's an error and they marked the wrong thing for clearance or something... I'm just guessing though...

I wish the Target near my area was good with Clearance stuff.........it's always crap.


"Good" with clearance stuff or good with stupid employees/pricing mistakes?
