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.



My issue with the two people which may be the same person posting this stuff is that any future deals may become that much harder to find with other people finding out about the deals...

CAG,SD,FW are all starting to become less sacred lol....

Officially the last posted deal I was able to get on was the DMC 3 for $9.98 at TRU but my city has always been picked pretty dry on deals....

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


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


:roll:

Are you serious? They better have given credit to CAG.
You hurt the right person and you're wrong for life.

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!


Scorch - just rent it. I rented it for the kids and played through it myself. You can beat the game and get 1000 achievement points in about 5-8 hours tops. That is if you can stand playing through the glitches at the end :bomb:. (There's one race level where you may keep running under the carpet texture and getting stuck and then having to reset and start the whole race over again - I had to do it about 7 or 8 times before I got past that).

As for Target, I was there the other day and the clearance stuff was wiped clean. I can't believe anyone finds anything this time of year. There are too many people (kids with gift cards, etc) buying the clearance games at not-quite-CAG prices, so they never last until they are CAG-worthy.

This thread is probably useless now. I'm going out to do some serious rounds to look for a tv and other stuff so I'll check this out while I'm out anyway.

Three Targets in the Atlanta area have a 37" Flat Panel LCD HDTV on clearance. Starting price 1,000, current price 800 at 20% off. 99% sure that it was a Sylvania.

I saw Tony Hawk CE for 29.99 for 360, Graw 2 for PC was still 34.99. I'll pick either or both of these up when they hit 19.99. Thats the Norman, OK Target. The clearance game section is tiny now.

YES!!! Picked up Ghost Squad for 9.99. Found a few copies by the end aisles, no price on them, scanned them and came up 'item not found'. Asked the Electronics kid, he said they might be recalled, but customer services could help me out. The lady at CS asked me to name a price, I said 10 or 12, she then rang it up for 9.99!!!!! - Green Bay, WI

Besides, you may be able to find the PS3 Homecourt at BB as a frontlane game, and be able to use the "$10 off any PS3" coupon from the BB coupon thread...

My Target had a couple PS3 Untold Legends for $12.48 and a bunch of PS3 NHL 2K7's for $7.48. I passed on both, although if the NHL game drops one more time I'll probably pick it up. From what I've read, Untold Legends for PS3 isn't even worth $12.xx.

Anyway, my store had NBA Homecourt for the PS3 with a generic UPC of 29.99. Would it be immoral to remove the UPC and get the game for its clearance price? What would you do, CAG?


Wasn't it on clearance close to 2 months ago? If so it's probably out of the system and when it prompts the cashier to enter a price, they'll just enter the sticker price of $29.99

Just went to my Target and they had 2 copies of Ghost Squad for 12.xx each.

Its strange because they had them labled with a repackage sticker but it was never opened, i guess Target stores hate the fact of having a game in their store calledl Ghost Squad lol.

It is amazing how fast Ghost Squad went on clearance seeing it is only like a month or so old. If I had a Wii I would snag up on this seeing it is like the Time Crisis games...

Target seems to be clearing out new products pretty quickly these days. I thought the same thing about the PSP slim headphones and AV cables. A month or so after those accessories had come out and they were over in the clearance endcap.

Just bought Ghost Squad for 14.98. I also bought NBA Homecourt for 14.98. When Ghost Squad wouldn't scan, I told the cashier they were in the same section.

Also saw Stuntman for the 360 at 29.98.

All at Streamwood supertarget.

What I'm really wondering about is why so many stores are apparently using the "as is" stickers specifically for copies of Ghost Squad when they aren't actually damaged or opened items. It seems to go against the general idea of "as is" stickering.

Saw Stuntman Ignition a few days ago for $20.xx down from $29.xx. Still a little too much for me, I'll check to see if it's still there at $12.xx.

They also use the As Is stickering when items barcodes don't register in the system like when they receive items in shipments that were sent there by mistake. This seems to be a big mistake like the Popcap Games issue, but on a much grander scale. I'm guessing that they will get the barcode in the system soon. It seemed to me that Popcap's problem was the actual barcode itself as it wouldn't scan, but if the number was typed in it would come up in the system.

If I may ask, what is the Deal with the Popcap collection?

Is it another Clearanced title?

The "As-Is" sticker on my copy of Ghost Squad said specifically that it was a website return. I've also gotten similar "As-Is" stickers on a CD (new one by Operation Ivy) and DVD set (some 3 DVD horror collection). I'm not saying all these copies of Ghost Squad are website returns (they are obviously not), but that they also use that sticker when someone returns a website item to the store and the store doesn't carry it.
