I picked up a few stuff among those was a Xbox wireless wheel for $11.99, 7oz compressed air can for $4, nyko powerpak+ for 2.99, Targus chill mat for 14.99. The first two items I went directly to the store to pick up and noticed the air can along with many other things weren't even marked as clearance priced but did scan at the register at the online price. For the Xbox wireless wheel the marked clearance price was higher but did scan at the lower price indicated on the website. I initially thought of getting an afterglow pro controller but once I saw it in person changed my mind since the quality did not meet my expectations. The nyko battery for the 3DS I couldn't find at the store so placed a pick up order and got it today.

 

A word of advice if you are browsing through a particular store's clearance and open box section is for many items the "Add to Cart" button appears as a gray "IN STORE ONLY" button and cannot be clicked. That does not mean its impossible to process a store pickup for those items it just takes a few extra steps which I will discuss here. First take the SKU # of the desired item then open a new tab at the best buy homepage and paste the SKU number in the search. Add the item to your cart then in your cart you should have the option of selecting the store where the item is in clearance. You will be charged the original online price but once you pick the item up at the store an adjustment will appear on the printed receipt. This is handy for items that are presumed unavailable or if you don't want to bother going through the store and finding what you want.

I already bought the Fusion like a week ago. Can I somehow get it at this price without just buying and keeping both?

I already bought the Fusion like a week ago. Can I somehow get it at this price without just buying and keeping both?

The same thing happened to me with the Wii U Pro controller. I bought it 5 days ago on sale for $30 and it's now $15. I called customer service to do a price adjust and they said they can't and it's against policy to price match/adjust with clearance items (she showed me on the website). So, I asked if I just went and bought the $15 one and returned it with the $30 receipt from the other day if I'd be able to return it and she said yes. So, that's what I did.

 

Also, anyone in south FL, the Coral Springs store has one Fusion controller left and the Margate store will have one later today when I return the one I just bought lol. I bought it on impulse and I honestly don't need ANOTHER controller.

Sweet I got the PS3 Fusion, 2 afterglows for WiiU (Might return one depending on how well it works) and a red cover for a WiiU gamepad all for 36$.

Not a bad deal at all. Especially since the damn Black Pro controllers refuse to drop below 20$

Picked up a Fus1on PS3 controller for $16. It is a very nice controller for the price. In the Pittsburgh, PA area there were three more at the South Hills Best Buy yesterday evening for any other Pgh. area CAGs looking for one.

 

I grabbed one at the Waterfront store today (last one on the shelf, may or may not have been the last one in the store).  It was marked as $32 but rang up at $16, and then on top of that I had a $5 Reward on my Rewards Zone card (which was a surprise since I can't recall the last time I bought anything at Best Buy).  At that price I really can't complain...

Can anyone who has purchased the pro controller comment on quality? I'm ok with 360 and DualShock layout, so I'd only be interested if the analogs are really better than a DS3's. I like the DS3's small dead zone but would like a stiffer stick. Every third party controller I've tried has a bigger dead zone and feels off, even if the resistance on the sticks is better.

The quality of the controller is fine. My biggest complaint about the pro and gamepad is the layout of the buttons being below the right analog stick. Wii classic controllers, PS3 and 360 controllers all have the buttons above the right stick. I find this VERY awkward, as it goes against the control configuration I've been using for many years.

 

I picked up the eye/controller combo and a second move controller. Also snagged a couple of the handgun attachments. Had all this stuff before, but sold it last year before the prices on this stuff started falling. looks like it's more HOTD 3 and 4 tonight. lol

Ah, just scored a couple of PlayStation Move Navigator controllers for five bucks each. The game clearance stuff was not easy to find, but they had a surprising number of Move and Navigator controllers there.

Well, no Fusion controllers in any stores near me. If anyone ends up with an extra, and would like to sell or trade something for it, let me know.
I just got a PS3, and would love to have that as a second controller.
Thanks.

For those in Orange County: mission Viejo store has a clearance section with games and accessories but don't just look there.  I picked up the wireless wheel from the actual xbox 360 section. still several there.  This store does not have the PS move accessories or the fusion controller.  The Irvine store (lake forest drive) is where I picked up the fusion controller.  still one there.  the fusion controller for the 360 is regular price.  there are several xbox wireless wheel there too (and $2 cheaper - $9.99 instead of $11.99).  They did have a few PS move navigator but not the rest.  they also had a PS move bundle but regular price.

For those of you with Forza Horizon, definitely get that racing wheel. It's insanely fun to cruise around with! Got mine when Target clearanced them out.

Will the clearance prices shown on the specific location's clearance page on the website ring up the same in the store? I went earlier and a lot of what was on the site is tagged higher.

Can that fusion controller be used on a pc/Mac. Specifically pc via VM Fusion on a Mac?

Should ring up at current price listed on web site for that store. Mine tagged the nav controllers at 11.99 but still rang up 5.99

It is plug and play for pc, Win 7 and I think 8.  Don't know about Mac.  It is also directinput and not xinput so you will need 360 emulation to play some games.

All the PS Move stuff was marked as higher prices but all rang up at the clearanced price at my store.  Now I can play House of the Dead Overkill with a lightgun.

 

I am bummed that they don't have any of the Fusion controllers.  I see that they can be shipped to the store but then I would have to pay full price.

I'm wondering that if you ship to store, the system will still only charge the clearance price. Can anyone chime in on this?

If anyone is looking for the controller & it is not available in your local area, you could always ask to see if they can order one for you.  I brought a print of the clearance page for the Fusion controller (the closest store was 50 miles away) & they ordered the controller for me right then and there, with shipping to my home residence for the $15.99 clearance price.

Has anyone had any success with this?  There is a store that is well stocked about 100 miles away from me.  I could print out the clearance pages for each item and have them shipped to my house for the clearance price there.  Does this work?  Sounds pretty YMMV

Also anyone else had success with this?  There are a few items at my local store that this would be nice to do at.  Hunting around that store for items can take ages sometimes.

My local Best Buy had no issues ordering a Fusion controller for me via OMS. I paid $16.XX and it'll be deivered to the store next week. YMMV if your store is willing to do it, my store knows me very well so they usually work with me. But I can atleast confirm it is possible.

Cool..what does OMS mean again?  Is that the system they have at BBY stores where employees can look up the stock at other stores in the area?

It stands for Order Management System. It's just the way employees can have an item transferred/shipped to that store, or even place an in-store pickup for you at another store.

 

I grabbed 2 Fusions, an Afterglow and a USB Hub. I don't have a Wii U yet, but I figured that's an amazing price so why not. I usually don't ever mess around with third-party peripherals but... couldn't get a white pro controller on clearance so this is the next bext thing.

 

I could try and grab some more Move stuff but honestly I have 2 wands and one nav controller sitting in a box for the past 2 years. I have Wonderbook that I bought for no reason, as well as some other Move-enabled stuff. No need to keep hoarding useless stuff...

Yeah, I picked up the fusion ps3 controller and played gta5 for a few hours tonight and it's really good. Ï would say buy one for sure. It has the Xbox sticks and triggers and feels very comfortable. The analog sticks are just perfect.

Really impressed with it. Best $16 spent.

That Fusion controller really is awesome. I'd grab another if I had saw one. Just played an all night RE5 session with a cousin, felt just as good as a regular controller if not better. The LED lights and extra grips are just added bonuses.

 

Easily one of the best controller purchases I have ever made. Hell I could see myself having paid in the 40$ range for it if I had tried it out first

AWESOME score today. None of the stickers on the shelves matched the online prices, but when the girl went to pricematch they all rang up correct. Ended up getting:

 

Fusion controller for PS3: Not as durable as a PS3 controller and certainly not as durable as a 360 controller, but the joysticks feel nice and tight. Comes with a ton of extras and overall love the design and feel.

 

Move Controller ($5) (Navigation)

 

Sharpshooter Attachment ($4)

 

Playstation Battle Royale (not part of the deal but was going to order this on amazon anyways)

 

Then I went down to Gamestop and got Heavy Rain Directors Cut new for 10 bucks. Awesome trip.

Nothing was more uncomfortable in a game then when trying to use the Sharpshooter attachment lol, not again for any price.

 

I'm still considering the Wii U Pro Controller, I think there's a couple near me on clearance, but I'm honestly wondering what game I'd even play it with, and since I have a PS3 and a 360, I don't ever see myself buying another 3rd party game for the Wii U that I wouldn't specifically get because it had unique gamepad support.  It also seems like half the fricking Wii U games aren't even supported by it.

 

Another waste of money.  Gotta practice some self control on this one.  I haven't even used my Move stuff in like 6 months.
