Went into my local Sears earlier today and found The Metroid Prime Trilogy Collector's Edition in the Steelbook for $9.97. Of course I bought it. It was the last one. I want to find another one since I am unsure if I am going to keep this game or sell it since I could easily get $50 + for it online.

Also snagged Muramasa Demon Blade for $9.97 for my buddy and 2 copies of Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts for 360. Those were $1.75 Each. Lol. I traded one in for $10 since I owed a bit on MGS:PW CE and may keep the other one. Not sure.

This Sears was in Bethlehem, PA.

It's OOP so it's rare to find it anywhere anymore, new at least. Worth the $50 price tag if any Wii game is, one of the only reasons I have a Wii.

Holy balls. $1.75 for Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts is bananas.

I bit the bullet when it was 19.97 about two months ago. I'd highly suggest to get it if you don't have it already. It's absolutely worth every penny of the original price tag.

You guys are full of it. These are still out there so it doesn't hurt to search. Besides, there are other $9.97 games that are worth looking for too.

This thread will probably get merged.

I said it would be tough finding one, not that there are none to be found. You know damn well it would be tough finding a copy.

Wow, that is an amazing price on Metroid Prime, as are the others. The Sear's around here aren't really worth checking anymore. Last year, when I started looking, I was finding some good deals, but since then it has been dry and they actually raised the prices back up on several items.

I recently found Banjo Kazooie for $5 at another Sear's, which I've never found any deals at, but that was the only thing they had.

Nice finds!

I checked my local Sears out yesturday, but, sadly, there were no copies available.

Looks like I'll need to spend $50+ to finally own it. Tell me again why Nintendo stopped printing this compilation?

They're clearanced for a reason, buddy.

Anyway I gotta check my Sears tomorrow. No luck for Ninja Gaiden Sigma 2 & I walked like an idiot for the bus before asking about this. Could have been under the piles of shovelware crap, I don't like how Sears (at least mine) just stacks new items on top of old items in those glass cases, makes it hard to find anything without asking someone for help.

This. I remember though when they had a clearance on some PS1 games, included in that lot was Final Fantasy VII for 6.97...and I passed it up, because I didn't think I'd ever want to play it again after investing 350 hours. I was like 12 :cry:

If anyone manages to get an extra copy of Banjo Kazooie Nuts and Bolts, I'd pay for the game, shipping, and your time!

Damn, why could I have not seen this earlier today? I was just at Sears not long ago.

I am definitely visiting somewhat soon, tomorrow if at all possible.

ALRIGHT, we had the goose-chase for Zelda Twilight for the Gamecube at K-Mart a couple months ago. Now we can waste a bunch more people's time looking for another thing really rare at an incredibly low price that should have been posted in a clearance thread. Oh boy, oh boy!

Oddly, actually, one store here did restock Muramasa this month -- about five copies appeared out of nowhere (at the updated clearance price) when they had previously sold out a month earlier. Of course those are now long gone too, but still, apparently restocking of clearance items is not entirely impossible. It probably depends on whether they have more stock at their warehouse to get rid of.

That being said, I've been in about twelve Sears stores in the past month (beyond the ones in my immediate area, I also stopped at several along the way both ways on a road trip I took a few weeks ago), and I didn't see any copies of Metroid Prime Trilogy left at any of them. I'm glad I went ahead and grabbed it at a higher clearance price a couple of months ago.

It's OOP so it's rare to find it anywhere anymore, new at least. Worth the $50 price tag if any Wii game is, one of the only reasons I have a Wii.


Eh, it's not that rare yet. Pretty much all of the Targets around here, anyway, are still sitting on multiple copies of it at the full $49.99 price point. So if you can't find it on clearance anywhere, and you still want it badly enough to pay MSRP, check Target.
