    There are a lot of caveats now to even finding "deals" like these with ymmv, and with online retail. Also, with physical games now in far smaller numbers generally, you seldom even get games to sit long enough to drop to $20 or below.

    Assume you mean they're trying to keep them from falling below $30-- like how Nintendo (frustratingly) keeps their titles at msrp for years on end after release. Not sure how well that's working for these other publishers, but for me I do pick up titles I want when I see $25 or $30. Granted...

    I picked it up at $30. It's an excellent remake. Too bad EA is not going to make anymore. It's said to have sold below expectations. Probably will drop to $20 though nowadays it feels like these drops on physical games are a lot slower on most prestige titles.

    I'd assume so. And on that - what a clusterf%$k Microsoft Xbox is. We're talking LRG level of incompetence over there. Spencer, Bond, and Booty should all be fired. Whatever the strategy there is, I think Gerstman said it best, "It's a mystery ... and I don't think they know, either." I'm...

    Same for me. That said, no matter how interesting a game is, I'm done ordering directly from them. It's only Amazon, VGP, or ebay for me. Nothing they publish is worth the wait for me anymore.

    Same. It really shows how good a job these companies have done not just in convincing consumers about streaming, but also in devolving consumers' expectations on the quality of physical media sold (CD-Rs are less reliable and more prone to damage; the difference in manufacturing costs is pennies...

    LRG remains one of the most incompetently run companies I've ever seen that literally survives merely because they were first. It really is a wonder just how much brand damage they can take before this house falls. I suppose it's lucky that so many of its customers appear to enjoy being lied...

    Agreed. Far more obscure titles have gotten reprinted ... and this is a current gen title.

    Guessing the Persona games will show up at those sales because as I recall, LRG is not allowed to sell those through any other retailers.

    Amazon may also get some, too.

    Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

    Believe what you want. None of these games were on clearance at my locations. I think you're also forgetting there are a lot of folks here who post who basically live in the same area/region which also would easily explain the same games being on clearance at the same prices. Walmart is...

    Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

    WMs sales are mostly YMMV, as evidenced by how folks here are seeing games priced differently across stores/regions. As always, none of these are showing up at mine.

    Target Clearance Thread XXIV

    Target clearance is ymmv They don't because Target dosen't charge you until it ships so the dollars spent will not register in the promo period.

    Given Nintendo doesn't have a new Switch this holiday, pretty safe to expect bigger sales on the software to make up for console sales.

    WM deals are pretty much always YMMV. Literally none of the deals talked about here have ever showed up at the WMs near me.

    Thanks. Will probably just try to pick this up from another retailer like VGP after it actually releases.

    Target Clearance Thread XXIV

    Well, yeah, because nobody buys physical media on Xbox. In earnest, I'm surprised smaller publishers even bother with printing Xbox discs at this point given MS doesn't even do so.
