Swung by Toys R Us today, and saw they had Gears of War 3 Epic Edition for $39.98. My TRU rarely puts video game related things on good clearance, so there is a good chance you might be able to find one for $40. I just got one a few weeks ago from target for $60, so no need for a new one. Best of luck, and sorry if repost!

GS had this for $50, and still available at several GS around me. I have never seen one at TRU.
It should be a no brainer at $40 if you could find one.

Had 3 of them at my TRU, and your right $40 is a no brainer!

The Rockaway, NJ TRU has one epic edition left unless we sold it without me noticing.

iirc that included shipping costs, which was around $12, unless you are talking about some other sale.

It's weird, that during the past TRU clearance rounds, I spent good gas money searching for TRUs around me after work, and never seen any collector's editions, while other CAGs were reporting all kinds of harvests. With the limited space they have, they just lock all games in a big glass shelf.

It has been at this price for months. I got one at TRU for 40 about 5 months ago. If I remember correctly I used google somehow to locate one.

There was already a thread for it before the holidays. That's how I found out about it.
And they might have been marked at 99.98 but they would have rang up 40.
