Target Clearance Thread IX

I haven't been following this thread much but there's a ton of stuff on clearance at my local Target. Most of it is still above the range I'd want to pay but I did pick up College Hoops 2K6 (360) for $4.98. I figured that was the 75% off price so that's the lowest it'll go. This store is notorious for only letting things get to 50% before sending them off (like those 360 Arcade sticks).

I also managed to get a bunch of Halloween T-shirts for the kids for 40 - 70 cents. Sure, they are all odd sizes that don't fit anyone now (or probably next year either) but for that cheap I couldn't resist ;).

^ I know the feeling. I found a lot of candy for $0.21 - $0.27 a bag. I was grabbing stuff even if it wasn't my favorite kinds just because it was so cheap. I figured with most expiring in Spring and Summer 08, I'd stock up now rather than buy an occasional bag for $2 on sale during the year.

I also saw an endcap with a ton of games, unfortunately they were all 30% off. Too many to list, but I remember seeing Ant Bully for the Wii for $13.98, a bunch of 07 sports games on various systems, Gun for the PSP.

Was hoping the 50% off games finally dropped but Burnout Dominator is still scanning at $19.98

Went to the local Target (Fresno CA River Park location)

Had quite a few copies of clearance games:
Stalker $20.98
All Star Football (360) $14.98
Fantastic Four, Harry Potter (PS3/360) $27.98
NBA Street Homecourt (360) $29.98
Godfather (Xbx) $9.98

I'm looking to obtain STALKER, but for no less than $15. If anyone can help me out, please let me know ;)


Are these deals everywhere?? Is it just for this week only??

READ THE DAMN TITLE NOOB!!!

it's a YMMV thing so you have to get your lazy ass to a target and look for yourself.

Hey Friend of Sonic, nice job on the list in the OP - that's the first time I've ever seen a comprehensive Target clearance list on CAG ;).

I did just remember one more I saw. Besides the College Hoops 2K6 I picked up, it was the only thing at 75% off - King Kong for the Gamecube was $4.98 also. I would have snagged it if I didn't have the 360 version. Pretty much everything you have in the list (dated Nov 5th) that I saw at my store was the same price so I would imagine those two would be fairly universal as well - or at least on clearance at some price (you do have College Hoops on there from Oct as $9.98 but King Kong for the GC is new).

Damn, wish I had known about Arcade Unplugged - I need to keep an eye out for that one. Unfortunately every Target I've been to in the last year keeps on top of all their prices and I never find those hidden gems any more (unlike at, say, Kmart ;)).

I saw Battles of Prince of Persia for DS for $9.98 the other day.

I'm not sure that I would include prices in the OP. Clearance prices vary from store to store.

YMMV, I bought Warhammer 40K: Dark Crusade for the PC for $9.99 at the Target @ Mundelein, IL two days ago. This is the stand alone expansion for WarHammer 40K (PC).

This has to be CoD2, as 3 and 4 were not made for PC in any way, shape, or form.

Too bad though....I would love to pick this up for $10, reminds me of the R6:Vegas when it first came out and some targets had it on clearance.



I can confirm that this is CoD2 as I have been to 3 targets in the past week and they all had CoD2 for the PC for $9.99. Hardly a deal. However, CoD4 is available for the PC now. ;) Infinity Ward wouldn't leave their PC peeps hanging in the dust like that.

It's so weird, i go to my target weekly and there's close to never any clearance games. I stopped by today during lunch and found the end aisle just smattered with cleareance games (mainly 360 games), most were not even in the glass cases for the past couple months. They all were still in the 20-25 dollar range, so i didn't pick any up. The list was:

360
-Prey
-Gun
-Meet the Robinsons
-The Godfather
-Pimp My Ride
-Call of Duty 2
-Tiger Woods
-DOA 4

Wii
-Metal Slug Anthology
-Red Steel

All in the 20-25 dollar range

I've been waiting for Metal Slug to hit the $20 range for some time now. I've never seen it on clearance at target though.

tons of ds, 360, ps2, and psp games at my target. mostly inline with the stated prices.

all of their ddr games on every platform were starting to be clearanced, but still not too cheap.

i did find one amazing thing though. ddr mario mix. not only there, but clearanced! Paid 37 for it out the door.

I know this is going to sound ridiculous to some of you, but could someone tell me what "YMMV" means?
Anyway, I'm tempted to buy N3. I'm really drawn to this game for some reason.

There was a huge pile of Gamecube games at my target marked with a 4.96 as-is tag. As far as I know they are factory sealed games with the same shrinkwrap that normal games use, there is nothing wrong with these games.

They also had excite truck for Wii for around 35$ Anything else was probably not that notable.

Two 360 drops:
Arcade Unplugged 4.98
College Hoopks 2k6 4.98

Two 360 games I haven't seen reported yet:

Amped 3 30% off at 20.98
Top Spin 2 30% off at 20.98

One GC game:

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance 30% off at 13.98

Friend of Sonic, I don't envy you one bit keeping up the list with this chaotic set of drops!!! Keep up the good work.

My target just loaded up their clearance rack again...though, since it was the first round of 30% drop, the deals weren't too great, but not bad.

Some of the games I didn't see mentioned in the main post:

DKC 3 (GBA) 20.98
Mega Man ZX (DS) 20.98
Final Fantasy V (GBA) 20.98
Children of Mana (DS) 20.98
Mario DK 2: March of the Minis (DS) 20.98

Picked up FF and Mega Man for now.

Don't remember anything else at the moment.

Anyone know when the next markdown is? I've seen a few, like Dead or Alive Xtreme 2, that I'd like to get, but don't want to even pay $20 for them.

Nice! I'd definitely grab Splinter Cell at that price. Still waiting on Stalker to drop further.

Ditto, I keep checking it every week to no avail.
Thank you CAG, for making grad school more enjoyable (and cheap).

Stopped by one Target near me tonight, but there was nothing to write home about. I'm hoping they mark te games down further so I can grab N3.

It's about fucking time.

My local target just clearanced a TON of games, though most are old drops that never happened at my store.

Korinopa, Ant Bully, Meet The Robinsons, Surf's Up (Wii) - $20.98
NCAA Football '07, Madden '07, DOAX2 (360) - $20.98
Zelda: WW (GC) - $13.98 (bought, much better than a price I was quoted on CAG)

A few others as well, but not much new (or new to me). I stashed a copy of Korinopa and DOAX2 in case they drop again after the weekend, but I might not have had to - my store had almost 20 copies of DOA and 10 of Korinopa. Has anyone played Korinopa - it looked interesting, and a fun Marble Madness-ish game on the Wii sounds good at $13.xx if it drops again.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Did your Target have any more Zelda WW for the GC? If so, which one was it? I'm going to be down in Santa Ana this weekend and I can't find it anywhere up here in Los Angeles.
