didnt see this listed, but at a target I usually don't go to in South Austin,TX had Prince Of Persia 360 and Afro Samurai 360 for 41.98. Saw it on Saturday, might check monday or tuesday to see if it goes to 50% off but will probably miss it. Only about 3 Afro Samurais and 5 Persias in the case.

^I was hoping to find XBlades at that price to flip to BBV ($26 TIV as of yesterday). And my store had a few copies, but at $41.98. Ew.


Yeah. A couple of weeks back, the only copy of X-Blades that I found was still at $41.98 but when I checked this week, for some reason, some of the Targets in my area had several copies at $14.98.

I thought about picking up a few to flip to BBV but I just can't seem to get myself to flip to BBV anymore. I still have a rule of getting a 2x return on cash flips ingrained into my brain. So spending $16.xx to get $26 just doesn't compute. I guess i'm just spoiled and bitter. :lol:

Alright, I'm officially begging for a 360 Mirror's edge, as I've now been to three Targets that claimed to have "limited availability" only to find zero copies of it at each one.

So, those of you with these miracle Targets that have 26 copies available for $9.98, how much for a shipped copy (Paypal)...?


You should still check them out once a week. You might be surprised at them popping up out of nowhere. I've had a couple of clearance games do that at the Target I visit regularly.

Yeah I do check my local one every Monday anyway, and that's still saying limited availability so we'll see if anything happens. Its frustrating because the stock checker was 100% accurate about the games that nobody actually wants like X-Blades and MLB manager, but Mirror's edge is batting 0 for 3!

Saw these on clearance today

Banjo Kazooie Nuts & Bolts
The Lord of the Rings: Conquest (360)

Don't remember the exact price, but I think both were in the $2X.XX range.

Someone hid a coopy of Mirror's Edge ($19.98) and Sonic Unleashed ($12.48) behind soe copies of Kung Fu Panda. I picked up Sonic Unleashed. Another Target had about 15 copies of Mirror's Edge for $19.98 as well, so I'll just wait until the next drop on Monday.

Most likely it's either hidden somewhere in the store or in the back stock. Either way, it'll show up randomly rather than any set day. My Target didn't have X-Blades in forever and suddenly it showed up on Thursday this week. I'll keep an eye out for you though.

Whoa I hadn't thought about checking Target every week, but doesn't that rape your wallet haha if you see other stuff you normally wouldn't think of getting? I was kind of let down by both of the stock checkers when I looked, but it does make sense that the games could be stashed somewhere. At one of the Targets here, there was Mirror's Edge for the PS3 and it said available online.

I went there and checked at the price scanner and it said available in the back, but the guy couldn't find them so I gave up. Also, it was still $29. I did notice though that one of the stores that said out of stock, managed to have one pop out of nowhere. Maybe a return?

Banjo isn't much of a deal at that price since it was going on Amazon for less a couple months ago. But I will say that I have been having a lot of fun with it -- it had a pretty bad demo that turned me away from it until Wombat trumpeted it.

I'll be sure to check back on Mon. And 2:1 is definately what I'd want, but I'll take a +$10 flip, when it's not too far off from 2x. My BBV has had a lot of decent used games lately that I've had my eye on and I don't like having $0 in credit now, lol.

Need to tag the new thread since old one closed. I'll get around to Target again once my financial responsibilities have come to pass.

I do too, but I only want to pay about $10 for it, since I heard it got horrible reviews.

Mind you, I've bought games that got horrible reviews and most people hated before and some of those were some of the ones I played the hell out of and couldn't put down.

I'm headed up to NY state on Tuesday, so if I don't find a copy of the games I want around by me, hopefully I can snag one or more of them up there come Tuesday.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

Holy crap...there isn't a game on this list that I don't want, well maybe Smackdown but I bet I'd pick it up if/when I saw it for $15. I thought after Mirror's edge I'd be done with Target clearance for a while, guess not.

I've only seen one or two of those Lips bundles at any one store at a time...probably going to have to bite early on that one.

Is it worth picking up? I know of a store that had about 5 copies when I was in there 2 nights ago.

I'm also on the hunt for mirror's edge, but I've come up empty :( Can anyone pick an extra up for me? I'll pay shipping/tax/extra or I have some $10 BB games I can trade...

My Target had three random copies of Jericho show up. I scanned it but it says not in the system. I didn't think the game was worth it to try to follow up on it and get a price on it or anything.

I visited Target store after a church service to look for PS3 $10 Bioshock.
I couldn't find it, but I picked up "Bully" and "Kingdom Hearts II" for each $4.98.
Sweet. Thanks God.

I'm going to guess the bundle. I believe the bundle was $40 and the game by itself was $30. $27.98 would be 30% off of $40.

Checked my local Target and came up with nothing. Perhaps the price changes will be done on Monday (I hope).
