I found a selection of older games in the $1 to $3 dollar section at my local Target store. Lots of Shovelware but a few decent titles for 5 bucks. The ones that I can remember are...
Wii: Game Party
DS: An RTS game that I can't remember the name of, but it looked crappy, and Spectrobes: Beyond the portals collectors edition
3DS: A lot of shovelware, nothing worth mentioning at my store. A few licensed movie games.
VITA: Unit 13 and Little Deviants.
PS3: Battlefield Bad Company 2, Assassin's Creed 2, and a few of those drawing pad games like the marvel one.
Xbox 360: Similar to the PS3 selection, with some added Kinect shovelware. The other games were an old madden game, the swimming game with that famous olympic diver, the Victorious game, and an old Forza game.

I got the Spectrobes game. Since I like the series. I know that the online doesn't work for the game, and the majority of games were Wii and DS games, probably because of that fact.

What part of the store? In the electronics section on in the front with the cheap stuff?

They were all 5 bucks, despite being in the 3 dollar section. Though, you can use the 20% off cartwheel coupon on PS3 and Xbox 360 Assassin's Creed games to get Assassin's Creed 2 for $3 (probably). I already have the game, so I didn't bother trying to see if it would work.

The 1 to 3 dollar section. In most Target stores it is found in the very front by the carts and cash registers. In two story Targets, it depends.

Any chance you could post a DPCI? I'd guess these have new barcode stickers over the backs, at least Target.com says Little Deviants isn't carried in store.

There are three that I know of. 2 two story Targets in San Francisco, and 1 in San Bruno. They are pretty cool, and carry higher end stuff than normal Targets.

I don't shop very much at Target, but in FL we have Super Targets that are enormous Targets on steroids.

That's one of the reasons that I loved living in Florida. The super Targets and Walmarts.

That one is good, but the new one on Geary has a bigger games section, and a whole isle dedicated to Skylanders.

I was dumb and unwrapped the game while I was shopping to look at the cool Spectrobes cards that come with the game. And, without thinking, I tossed the plastic wrapper with the price tag in the trash. But, I can tell you the code on the receipt. It rang up as MISC 234010015 VIDEO GAME. I would assume that they all ring up this way, since the all had the same $5 tag pasted over the original barcode of the games.

The games at the Davis target were stuck on the bottom shelf near the back of the display. I thought that somebody had just stuffed a game there, but when I reached down to look closer. I saw a big pile of games haphazardly stacked on top of each other. Similar to the way that games are stacked on clearance in the electronics section.

Come on people, lets talk about our finds, not the size of our Targets.

I'll have to hit up some Targets tomorrow and see if I can find those Vita games. If so I'll return the copies I picked up at Best Buy today.

The selection probably varies store to store. Most games had a single copy on sale. I didn't see any doubles except for the drawing pad games for PS3 and Xbox 360.

Why? Are you scared that the size of my Target is bigger than your little, tiny, Target?
