Noticed this morning:
Facebreaker and Golden Axe (both :ps3:) dropped to 50% off.
Also the series of Phillips HDTV Antennas seemed to have dropped to 75% off.

I played Golden Axe from Gamefly. It's not even worth $10. It's that bad. Avoid it and you will be a happier gamer and just play the original on XBLA.

Facebreaker was $29.98. Not sure about Golden Axe.

Also none of last week's :360: drops, had an additional drop this morning.

I had no intentions of playing it....I plan on flipping it.

I can't believe you cheapasses place so much importance on TV brand. I'll take a Vizio or a Sceptre over almost any other brand when it comes to LCD's, save for maybe Samsung, but then cost becomes a major factor.

I'll check this afternoon and report back any drops at my store - I'm still waiting on at least a $7.48 Sega Bass Fishing to give as a gift.

I just looked at the ad for this week - has anyone had any experience with B2G1 sales like this week's and clearance games?

The advertisement for this week does say "Regular priced" which probably means that clearance items are excluded from the offer, but it doesn't hurt to try.

Samsung >>>> Sharp >>>> Panasonic >>>> Sony >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Lg, Phillips, Mitsuibishi, Pioneer, Etc.


I know that's your personal preferences, just throwing in that I've had wonderful experiences with all of my Toshiba Televisions.

I haven't seen much on Lg other than that they seem to be a pretty good South Korean electronics manufacturer. They acquired Zenith around 9 years ago so I'm inclined to believe that they make some quality TVs.

Unfortunately, it has been posted in the weekly ad thread that clearance Wii titles did not work with the b2g1.

How is brand not important?

As much as I loved my little Olevia set, after a year and a half, it's major defect became apparent. And I don't mean normal things like wear and tear, or maybe an odd power failure that can be fixed easily.

Well, at 50% off the game would be the 29.98. No trade in values go above $35 generally, and considering the sales of this game I'd expect it to be a piss poor flip until it hits at least 75% off.

I'm madly in love with my LG HDTV.

So can we get back on topic instead of arguing about TVs please? If you want to start another thread in another forum, by all means, but please don't flood this thread with essentially useless nonsense that has nothing to do with the thread. Thanks!

Has anyone noticed any other games that went on clearance? I'm hoping the last 360 wheel went down and is still there but I'm not holding my breath.

Bay Shore, ny store finally dropped the price of DMC4 (PC) to $10. They're on a random endcap in the store thats a bit aways from the games section. Happy I held out. There were 3 more. Also Age of Conan was clearanced at $20.

Question about the price changes. Do the clearance prices get manually changed in the system or is it automatic? I hid a sixaxis controller at my target and am waiting for the 12.50 price.

They have to get manually scanned/changed. If you were to hide a product there would need to be atleast 1 still on the shelf to get scanned and marked down (thus making the one you hide come up in the system at the new price)

I stopped by my local Target today at lunch. They had 1 :360: racing wheel but it wasn't marked as clearance and the shelf tag still said $99.99. I scanned the barcode and it indeed rang up $69.98. I thought about getting it but it looked like it had been opened and was a returned item. If I got it, I would want to ask CS if I could return it if something was missing / damaged. I was wanting to get one of these anyway so the price is good. I don't ever see more than 1 or 2 of these at a store so I don't expect them to say around until the $49.98 mark (50%) or lower. I figured I could hold on to my receipt and if it went lower, ask for a price adjustment.

Expect a Merrillville report later tonight.

I bought the 120 GB hard drive at Wal-Mart for $149.99 when I saw the price drop b/c I had a bunch of gift cards. I think I will buy it at Target for $125.98 and return it to Wal-Mart (unopened) to get my money back (on gift cards). I bought it on 09-30-08 so I should be safe with an unopened item (little over 30 days old). I could then watch the drive prices and see if Target lowers them and ask for a price adjustment.
