It is not a clearance price. Its a price drop in store, they are getting rid of reg. version before Greatest Hits versions come in.

Do a search in a close by store.

THIS IS IN STORE DEAL ONLY.

RUMOR - MOTORSTORM PACIFIC RIFT FOR $14.99
** NEEDS TO BE CLARIFIED.

You rule if this is true. Any chance there are drops on the other future GH titles?

Yeah, I just called a local store and confirmed the price on GT5 Prologue, though oddly he told me the price was 9.98 The store I called was OOS even though the website said they had it, so beware of that.

Going to check out a Target down the street at lunch. I'll let y'all know my results. Thanks for the tip, Op.

EDIT: Confirmed in Albuquerque, NM. I picked up GT:5 Prologue for $9.98, and I saw R&C for $14.98 (I already own a copy). Both had "Greatest Hits" stickers on the outside of the packaging, both were in the normal non-GH cases. Also, as many have said, they were behind the glass case and had actual shelf price stickers listing $9.98 and $14.98, respectively.

Just got both at Hamburg, Lexington, KY location. 9.98 and 14.98 respectively. Interesting... These have a red "Greatest Hits" sticker on the outside of the plastic wrap. I thought that was pretty cool. That means no nasty red case.

These 2 games are part of the new PS3 Greatest Hits titles which officialy launched yesterday. Target has been getting in new copies because of this, but haven't updated the DPCI #s for these.

It happens quite often with the inventory system Target uses.

It should be 0.00 in the system since it's old clearance. Kind of weird they reactivated it specifically for the new Greatest Hits copies and keep the old price.

I hope they don't raise the prices before I get to go. May try to skip out for lunch. I'm not sure if this will even last the day.

Says it's in-stock at my local Target store. The price being $9.99 is another matter, of course. Guess I know where I'm stopping on the way home tonight.

Expect the prices to be raised sooner rather than later. This is not a case where Target wants to get rid of the regular version before the GH version comes out. As someone already mentioned, they simply reactivated the products at their last known prices and will probably fix that soon.

It happened with Far Cry 2 (360) last week. It was being sold for a while at $9.98 before stores corrected it to $29.99.

Snagged the last GT at the Layton Utah store for 9.98. I saw a guy post on slickdeals that he grabbed that last one at the Orem Ut store.

Yep, if you're on the fence I would go today and buy it, and you'll have 90 days to think about it anyway. Lock in the price.

Store locator list that they have it, but sometime it doesn't comes up trumps is it?

If it says out of stock then they are out. If it say in stock they have multiple copies. If it says limited availability then they have 1 or 2 left.

Just adding another confirmation for those who are on the fence. Both games were restocked at the old clearance prices of $9.98 and $14.98. Red stickers indicating they are Greatest hits (no red cases) and both in the glass case.

Sure beats having to wait 3 months for the clearance price to hit 75% off.

Website shows GT5 at $39.99. If the deal is good, it would be in-store only now.

I missed the bottom price on R&C and never even saw GT5 on clearance so I got one of each. I had to do a bit of driving as my closest Target had none even though it said in stock on the website. Do the UPCs change on Greatest Hits versions? I checked the codes and these are the same as the original versions on the web. Just curious, since it seems they just slapped a sticker on the original version.

I'll be right behind you Shrike. Hopefully none of the RagTag's want anything, all I want is GT5 Prologue. Only about 4 or 5 RagTag's (myself included) even have PS3's so there shouldn't be a repeat of the Afro Samurai debacle. :)

Just got back from mine here in Columbus, Ohio. Both games fully stocked and yes priced at 9.98 and 14.98 respectively.

Interesting was that they were the only games listed without a price tag. I asked the sales clerk if I could get a price check and he scanned them and looked confused. I said, "I'll take both" and he said, "I think I will too" haha

Think this'll still be active around 5-6 EST?

I won't be near a target til then, unless theres reason to believe it'll be fixed before then.
I'm not missing out on 2 great games for 25 bucks total >.>.

And how accurate is their inventory system online? It shows theres no GT5 Prologues at my local store :/.
