The 1600 XBL cards that are clearanced are the blister-packed versions. Most (if not all) Targets are switching to the giftcard style (similar to the XBL game cards) because they don't hold any value until they're scanned at the POS.

If you find the blister-packs, it's worth checking the price.


oh, ok, cool thanks. my target (mission valley, san diego, ca) is the #13 highest volume store in the nation. it's only less than the supertargets. which is both good and bad. supply runs out quick. guess i won't be finding them at mine...

Found a couple of Ghost Squads at the gaithersburg target.... They show "Item not found" or whatever when I take them to the scanner, and the price on the shelf says 29.99 (no clearance sticker on the game) .... I'm guessing they would charge me 29.99 if I were to try and buy it, but I didn't try.

I found Meet the Robinsons for 360 and Metal Slug Anthology for Wii for $2.46 each as is at my Target. They weren't in the system anymore. Last ones as well.
Returned my MSA to C.C.

Just got back from Sunnyvale, CA Target. Item didnt scan so I went to the front registers. Stood in the Express lane with about 5 people in front. Took about 10 minutes. WTF???
Scan didnt take so she called Electronics. They told her $39.99. I was like "WTF?". Guy on the phone then changed to $29.99. Said no thanks and left.
There was absolutely no games on clearance there.

My pleading offer still stands on the Wii Ghost squad - anyone who feels generous and is getting it for $7/$12 I would happily pay $15 plus shipping. I've checked three Targets here and the only clearance games are Shadowrun for PC and a ton of Godfather.

On Topic: Godfather for what system and at what price?
Off Topic: I MAY be able to get a Ghost Squad, especially to trade for Godfather on 360.

I got a couple of Ghost squads for $12.48 each. They came up as not in the system, but other games on the endcap display (which had a giant $29.99 sign over it) rang up as $12.48, so they gave the Ghost Squads to me for that price. I also got a copy of GRAW for the 360 at $14.98 (it was in the system at that price).

Just picked up

:ds: Magical Star Sign $7.48,
:ds: Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin $7.48 and
:ps3: Untold Legends: Dark Kingdom $12.48

from the Dadeland, Fl store.

They had Ghost Squad but it showed up as out of system and they offered it to me for $29.99. Same thing happened with :ps3: Def Jam Icon.

I picked up Ghost Squad tonight for $12.46. It had one of those "As-Is website item" stickers, with a barcode right on the price sticker.

Another game that was out of the system (and a possible website only item) was Prince of Persia: Rival Swords for the Wii. I asked the cashier if he'd give it to me for $12.46 also but he said that was up to the pricing team so I left without it. Please note I encountered this game at 3 different Targets as "item not found."

Also, I saw The Godfather for the Wii at $24.98 at two different Targets.

Hit up the Target and found 5 Copies of Ghost Squad

All Scanned as "Item not found" I could not get the Employees to sell it. They also took the other 4 copies off the shelves.

This is a huge YMMV of the OMG variety.

I just picked up Lord of the Rings: BFME2 for $7.48 at the recently opened Super Target in Rowlett, Texas off of 66.

They had about 15-20 copies for $14.98 a week ago, and now I picked up the last one to sell to one of my friends (for just cost) so he can join the rest of our group.

There was also a lot of Tony Hawk Proving Ground for $29.98, so hopefully I can snag one of those when the price comes down.

Which Glendale, AZ one? 35th Ave and the 101? I'm gonna try a couple in Phoenix and Scottsdale and see what they have. Glad to hear there's a fellow AZ CAGer out there :)



I was at the one at 43rd ave and Peoria. I might hit up the one on Northern tomorrow.

I also saw Ghost Squad on the clearance area at Target, but rings up as "Item not found" like others say. Asked the employe, but also wouldn't sell it.

Did find:
Posted Image Dragon Quest Heroes: Rocket Slime $7.48

Also saw but did not buy:
Posted Image Genji: Days of the Blade $29.99

Also saw like 30+ copies of Final Fantasy XII at one Target. Wow! They must of made way too many.

CRAP!

I'm staying in Rowlett until Sunday. So bummed I missed that. If he bails, consider me interested. :)

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

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Ghost Squad Wii was UPC NOT FOUND in their system - scored it for 50% off w/o manager approval. $14.50 because she put the original price as $29.00.

Thanks

As expected, no Ghost Squad at my store, THPG has still not gone down, no more Meet The Robinsons and Ratatouille on x360, and i'm depressed because of it.

I'm never going to find Ratatouille on the 360 for cheap!

I checked out another Target, but to no avail. I'm really surprised no one else is spotting the Ghost Squads with generic UPC stickers like I did at the one store.

I went to the Target in Lemon Grove this evening with my sister and her boyfriend. He tried to pick up a copy of Ghost Squad. It rang up out of system (of course) and they absolutely refused to sell it to him. They followed this up by taking down every other copy they had on the shelves.

If Ghost Squad is on the end cap, take it up to guest services, you might have better luck, it wouldn't ring up at first, but she put it in the scanner gun a couple times, and it rang up for $12.46 This was in Whittier
CA.

Yeah jdawg, it's the 360 version.

CRAP!

I'll let you know. He's leaving for a cruise tomorrow, so I'll send him a text or give him a call soon. Another one of our friends also said that he wants it, but he might not like the game (he doesn't really know what it's about), so I'll check with him.

I picked up Madden 07 for $7 for 360. Not a bad deal.

Awesome. No worries - if I'd have known, I'd have checked out that Target. I've seen several Super Targets since I've been here, but I've only been to one (I believe it was over near Firewheel). At least it's a sign that LOTR might be clearanced back home in CA. If they bail, sign me up and give me a price.

Grabbed Ghost Squad at the Dallas Target at Haskell and I-75 for 9.98. The employee had to enter the price manually.

Friggin' sweet price. Thanks to whoever found this initially.

The sun is set. The stars shine in the sky. The night air is tinged with anticipation. And it is time to meet The Continental.

Well this list of clearance games has officially been spread around Gamefaqs.com.


They have them split into systems on each of the boards.

Take some satisfaction in knowing they're a bit late to this party. :)

I can see some of those remaining $29.50 Tony Hawk Proving Ground LEs selling to the gamefaqs kids and their Christmas gift cards, though.
