Very limited quanities on these items.
Xbox Kinect (SKU 260-1752) $59.97
Blk 3DS (SKU 260-2082) $114.97

Pretty sure there are discounts on some systems as well, might want to inquire with your local stores.

May or may not be YMMV, but I can tell you that my local store stopped selling game stuff a while back.

Unless it happened to be my same RS.  Mine had the exact same when I was there a few weeks back.  It was the last of their gaming stuff, for the most part, in a display case at the counter.

RadioShacks usually have similar things on clearance. I went to different stores to check out their conditions when I was applying for a job and a lot of the stuff was the same. Some were picked by the manager, but most clearance items matched up. Audio cable extensions and some motorized toys were marked at all stores.

My local RS has a 360 Kinect bundle w/ Disneyland and Kinect Adcentures for $199.99. Didn't bite on that, but picked up an XM radio for $49.99 with a $50 rebate.

As a former Radishack employee, I can say clearance is universal across stores. However, I worked there like 7 years ago so it could have changed, but knowing radioshack I doubt it

I have to say that is one of the best commercials I have ever seen when it aired during the super bowl. Was it effective as a marketing tool, for me...no. But I love watching it.

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.

Would the ps3 160gb be a good investment at $100? I seem to recall them being sought after new for some reason.

If it's the slim and not the super slim, I'd say so. The super slims are cheap top-loading units. Yes, they are the smallest PS3's imaginable, but I think the most optimized design for performance has to be the Slim v1. I bought a refurb'd 160GB PS3 Slim from Sony in Jan 2013 to replace an old unit for $129 (after trading in my dead unit), upgraded with a bigger HDD...still works perfectly and is so effing quiet compared to the launch units.

best bet is to go to the store and ask for an inventory check. It should tell you which stores in your town have it in-stcok. however, you need the sku numbers i think. i rememebred you can get the sku from the site. not sure you can now if the item listing is removed.

Remember when that black 3DS was trading in for $180 at Amazon?  Too bad that's not still going on.

$30 really?

 

Anyway, I found a shop that sells the 3ds for $100. Is that worth it? Anyone know if the clearace items are all open box? I saw a 3ds empty box on display and the guy said that they have like two more. He said that it wasnt as popular as the ps3 and xbox 360.

Nice find. Radio shack clearance YMMV? My store has it for $99. Anyone know if they do price adjustments or return purchase within the return policy? Anyone know is it 15 or 30 day?

My receipt seems to give 30 days for a return. I might try to do a return/rebuy for that $99 price. I'll post results if I do.

All items at RadioShack can potentially be open box, but they won't tell you. When I worked there my manager and the guys that worked with me used to open everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) and play with it, then sell it to unaware customers. Other stores in our district would do it to. They claimed it helped them sell the product :/

Edit: Also, never buy the keyboard cleaners from there. We used to have fights with them (stick them upside down, shake, cold air comes out) I think the video of them scaring me with it is on YouTube still actually, now that I think about it.
