They were clearing out collector editions for the titles I was able to grab. I was surprised, given how popular most of these titles are (RE5, Fallout 3, GTA 4, Resistance 2!). Turns out the CEs are apparently discontinued, hence the sweet price..doesn't make much sense to me either..



I think this is where I say "I told you so" to the people who didn't believe me when I reported this information on 5/6.

So is there still a possibility that CE's will be 50 percent off or no?

Got excited reading the posts above about the Collector's Editions. But I just tried my local GS and NONE of the CEs mentioned were clearanced. I even had them scan them and press total to make sure it wasn't a promo that had to kick in. Sucks as I was ready to grab a few.

Guess it's YMMV even though I thought GS was pretty consistent nationwide on this sort of thing.

I should have mentioned that I picked up the 50% CEs during the "game days" sale. I haven't been back since, so i'm not aware of their current offering. I do recall they had to manually adjust pricing at checkout. I guess I was just lucky with the timing. What was surprising was the majority of people passing on the bin, ignoring it completely.

So i dont get it.... is this final clearance everything is 50%? because alot of those mentioned items wernt even in the gameday sale, so they are just random 50% off items that werent previously included in any sales?


The bins had a sign that said Final Clearance 50%.

Define 'sweet' price. I paid $31.79 per copy for two copies of the GTA IV SE from the Blockbuster clearance last month sometime. Mind you, $45 and change for it this year isn't bad since the game is still $60 new by itself.

GTA IV went down to $39.99 MSRP a while back.

I didn't realize the clearance was still going on. Stopped in a local GS this evening and they still had a lot of leftover games. In fact, it looked like they had even more than when they started. Either way, picked up Obscure for $12.99. Might go back and grab Tomb Raider for the same price.

He said he got two of them and they were the special editions.

I believe J7. was responding to "...since the game is still $60 new by itself."

Correct.

So if the CE versions of games 50% off too or was that just a fluke at a couple of Gamestops...

That was always YMMV. Any markdowns of CE's had to be by manager override (except for BIA: HH PS3, which GS as a company lowered to $19.99). Some stores just decided to throw other items in the Game Days bins - items they wanted to get rid of. One of my local stores threw in a bunch of collectible card game packs and starter decks, each which had to be manually overridden to get the price listed on the item.

I got Namco Museum for $9.99. I was pretty excited. I didn't think they'd have any in.

Thanks for the list, though looking at the 360 lists its not solid enough. Ideally we want so of the big games there.

As others have said, it would appear that everything that was on the final clearance list will continue on at those prices until the stock is cleared. If I hear anything different from my sources, I will let you know.

Hm, I guess I'll check for Sonic Rush Adventure then. I thought since GS.com listed it at retail again that it was dead.

I've been really tempted by Mercury Meltdown for Wii. For $10, I'm thinking it may be worth it. Anyone else play it? I'm a big Kororinpa fan...

It's dead for some of the games on the original list, but not all of them.

FYI, I saw Sonic Rush Adventure for $9.97 at Sears.

Hey, thanks. I'll scope out my Sears though I don't think they've had this game ever.

mine has some of the games still in a bin. pretty picked over though and not anything noteworthy. guess I shouldn't have waited so long for Persona 3 FES. Oh well I will wait for a deal cuz I am not opening my sealed one to play.
