Before my brother hit FutureShop he went to Staples(keele/stclair) and found a bunch of games on sale.
One of the csr's said that they had the same games for ps3 that's on sale for 360 but all gone except rage. He also said that other stores should have many of these titles as well, although that remains to be seen. No idea if they do or not, call your location or pop in, your choice.
Keele/Stclair doesn't offer 50% off but some locations do, making these prices super hot if they are at a discounted location.
EVERYTHING IS YMMV, NO CONFIRMATION ON WHAT OTHER STORES ARE OFFERING!

Assassin Creed: Brotherhood x1

This week's Staples flyer mentioned clearance games from $9.97 and up, so this is a nationwide deal.

I think Rage has dropped in price faster than any other game... ever.

You could throw ME3 on that pile as well. 50% in the same month is a huge drop.

i don't think AA dropped that low..i remember picking mine up for $29 on black friday which was only like 2 weeks after AA was released but after that it rose back up to $59..Rage is definitely one of the fastest drop i have seen in a game..the fastest drop i have ever seen was Brink...that game dropped to $15 like a month after release LOL

Thanks OP! For once, a Staples gaming sale I can take advantage of! I also got RAGE. For anyone looking, the item number looks to be:

093155117471

Anyone have the number for PS3 or Xbox L.A. Noire? They can't find it in their system, and I don't feel like driving all over town (Edmonton Claireview had none)

Is it just Dead Rising 2, or is it Dead Rising 2 OTR?

Staples in Aurora On. was a joke. Everything was knocked down by MAYBE $6

If it was $29.99, it's now $23.97... Big whoop.

You had them scan it, right? My game was stickered as "clearance", $23.97 and rang up at $9.97.

Wii Epic Mickey was $17 at Edmonton Calgary Trail South with a further 20% off. Otherwise the store was bare.

Saw no games of interest, but I got a Sandisk 16g usb drive for 12 and a Kodak 16g SD card for 6 (pricing error). I'm likely much better with that than yet another batch of games.

This seems to still be going on; stopped in at Staples in Kingston, ON (on Gardiner's) and got these:

PS3
LA Noire
Mass Effect 2
Rage Anarchy Edition

All $9.97 each. Only other game there was Homefront for X360 at 9.97 as well.

Besides a SKU of 398023, I'm not sure.. What number are you looking for? :-#

Note some edits to the list I posted above.. Fable 3 is PC not 360, and Halo Reach isn't $9.97, it's more.

Umm, the number i was after was the number of friends Kirby can make throughout the game.

...

Nah, the SKU was what I meant! Thanks! ;)

Glad you laughed. And TeaBisquit, I liked your contribution--I'd quote that 'wat'...image, but I'd rather not see it again.

Ever. *shudder*

Thanks! I got Kirby: Return to Dreamland for 10$ (they added another 50% discount for some reason). And to think I was about to buy it full price at 50$...

Thanks again!

I swear I'm 1-40 on Staples deals in this city...

So Edmonton Calgary Trail looks up L.A. Noire for PS3 via the SKU provided and tell me it's 22.97. And sold out in Edmonton.

Kirby? Yah, that scans at 29.97. But now it appears I'm getting my Kirby's mixed up. Dreamland--the newer one--that's the one for $20, while Epic Yarn is still $30? Do I have that right? (does Kirby make fewer friends in Dreamland? Is that why it's cheap?)

Plenty of Epic Yarns to be found--no Dreamlands in sight...

*sigh*

Yeah, PC games, 360 games and PS3 games all drop at different rates :roll:

Here's two PS3 SKUs:

Mass Effect 2 923030-1
LA Noire 329353-1


Nice :) Note that the number past the dash is typically ignored, as it's not actually part of the SKU, but actually a check digit :)

That's because one game has "Epic" in its title. It's also the one without angry Kirby.

Good point! I suppose I should be thankful they didn't call it "Epic Dreamland" or we'd never see a break in the price.

Has anyone seen a price drop on Wii Party? I keep seeing a ton of copies at $29.97, which is too steep for me because I don't have an intense interest in it. But at $15 or $20 I'd think about it.

To me it's weird they haven't slashed its price, sitting on a lot of inventory. Picked up Kirby today (mispriced)... Should have asked them to check WP too
