I was in Target (Salt Lake) yesterday and asked a sales person to scan LotR: Conquest (ps3) and still it still scan at its stickered price of $39.99.

So we definitely don't have any Target clearance in here yet.



The Target thread only lists LOTR for the 360 as clearance. There is a whole rack of marked down games across from the WII section in the range of 19.99 and some PSP and DS a little lower.

I stand corrected. I was at Target and it wasn't a 360 MK vs DC placeholder I saw, but Monsters vs Aliens. It wasn't tagged $12.98 but out of stock anyhow. I did try to scan Bioshock for the PC and wasn't clearance price like the thread listed.

Wassup 808'ers.
Here's some scoop on B1G1 from BBV:
Mililani - Crap, it seems like they have their own way of doing things, the last time I was there (no B1G1), they had tons of GTAIV and now, all gone.
Waipio - Slim picking, 1.99/2.99 old gen games
Pearl City - Lots of old gen games (1.99/2.99/4.99), not much on PS3/360/Wii
Salt Lake - Opposite of Pearl City
Ala Moana, Iwilei and Hawaii Kai - Same as Salt Lake

Can somebody report on Kaneohe, Windward, Wahiawa, Waianae, Kapoelei and Ewa Beach.

Happy Flippin'

Damn, another flipper I have to watch out for! ;)

I want to add the Ala Moana actually really sucks for flipping as they have gotten rid of all PS3 used for sale AND rentals. I overheard the CSR saying they just weren't making enough money off them. They're WII and 360 stock is also very bare, but are still running that "clearance sale" as is Hawaii Kai on select new games, just not the recently released.

bbv in salt lake pretty much has nothing left.

TRU has Street Fighter IV for $39.99 (and you can further apply that 10% off coupon they are doing onto it) checked today lots left.
RE5 is still on sale, not as cheap as a previous sale though, its $44.99 but coupon works on this as well.

BB@Dillingham had a bunch of collector's edition games on sale for 60% off. Some 4th of July weekend stuff.
Nothing interested me.
MKvsDC, Endwar, Brothers in Arms.

No worries bone, my flipping days are over ;). Don't wanna get tagged by GS here and this is a small island.

Here's an addition to the list.
Wahiawa got nothing, they are $2-$3 higher than Salt Lake. No old gen games what so ever.

Just wanted to point out the $20 sale at GS. I've noticed a lot of places out of Wheelman for 360 or PS3, and PS3 versions of Bionic Commando or Hawx. Don't forget the B2G1 that's supposed next week.

BBV is still on, but I've looked around recently and haven't found any more flips. Still good prices if you're actually looking for the newer games to keep. Where's that guy I met at the Kaheka BBV? I thought he said he would post here soon????!!!! :cold:

boneless and his cheapass encounters...
Hahha.
Anyone trying to look for BlazBlue (PS3) might have to resort to TNJ. Depending on the GS, it is very YMMV if the employees will allow you to buy a copy if you haven't pre-ordered the game.
Get it while it's still relevant though!
Ebay the game and you'll get what I'm talking about.

I don't get it. btt you need to stop talking in riddles :lol:

BTW, what I bought at BBV was nothing compared to the guy I met. When are we going to bump into each other? :cold:



never mind, I'm assuming the price increase is what you're referring too. Anyone got Wii Punchout yet? I'm really liking that game. And FNR4, for some reason I like the controls, but maybe b/c I only played as Tyson as can wallop everyone.

Ray, you're actually going to play those copies and not, heaven forbid, resell them are you? ;)

Of course he's going to play BOTH of them.
Nah I have to admit, I picked up two copies myself.

No recent deals on my side of town btw.

I'm heading over to visit a good friend on Oahu early next month, and while I know about Toys n Joys, has anyone seen many import titles at Book Off? The one up in Vancouver, BC had a small selection of Japanese PS2, PS3, DS and PSP titles, and I was wondering if the two Oahu locations were the same.

Thanks.

There are two Book Offs here in Hawaii. There's one in Ala Moana (Shirokiya) and a new location just opened at Pearlridge. I don't recall seeing any games at either location. The Pearlridge one has games, but they are all crappy used (English) games.

Toys n Joys has their import titles marked up significant and there is no such thing as a sale there, but they have a very nice collection.

We've got Pink Godzilla here in Seattle, so I'm not too interested in new import titles, but if the Book Offs happened to have some used stuff, I'd be up for checking out. Oh well, I'll still hit them up to look through their art books and CDs.

Can anyone confirm recently Target/Kmart drops? I'm planning on possibly checking out Stadium Kmart as soon as the AT&T network is restored.

I would check Target for Fear 2, Riddick, NHL 09, 50 cent BotS, and maybe Hawx. Those are relatively new and may be in their system. I've scanned UPC's there before and prices do drop as reported, but I haven't seen those games in stock at the time. The nice thing about their scanner is that it tells if there's on the floor or inventory in the back.

BTW if you go to Target and see Dead Rising Wii marked down to 9.98 or NHL $14.98, get me one will ya?

Absolutely nothing at Target/Kmart near stadium. Save your gas. Dillingham Kmart did not have any recent drops as well. Either that or the workers are CAGers, hoarding that stuff after work.

I spotted 4 BlazBlue LE at Kahala BBV. They're listed at 59.99. Get them while you can! :lol:

The Hawaii Kai Gamestop is pretty well-stocked with used stuff -- spotted BlazBlue, ICO, Shadow of the Colossus, Odin Sphere, among others. Would be a good place to use the 25% off coupon. Only problem is that they put stickers on the artwork rather than on the case, which is a hassle to get off.

You my friend are getting a little too manic over these games. Save your energy and wait until the fall season comes out.

Here I go scolding btt while I go hunting some games down. :-#

ToysRUs has 2 copies of Blue Dragon 360 for $10 in the clearance bin. I dunno how it is, but seems popular on other threads. There's also Samba Amigo but I think you need maracas or something that it doesn't come with.

Sears Pearlridge has a Bioshock 360 which is supposed to be $14.97 but is very YMMV. Probably best to create a UPC and scan it yourself first.

BestBuy Aiea has some Bioshock guides which were pennied back in Feb or March but now they got about 10 with a shelf price of $20. Dunno what's going on with that but worth a shot if you want one.
