All the sears stores here no longer have video games, aka the games themselves on clearance, so perhaps the games are at a standstill in the system regarding price if your store still has any left. Thankfully I got that DQ game when it was still available here. Another reason why I am weary of waiting for things to drop too low as they may just disappear, especially when it's something I really want.

I have no idea what happened to the leftover games here as there was definitely leftovers but they are gone now.


All of our Sears at some point did a ymmv clearance to get most of the stuff out.

Anything left over was sent back by managers. I know this because Boulavard did a fantastic 75% off in the fall. Got tons of goodies. I went back the week after to try and get some other stuff and my friend who works there said they had to send it all back.

The plan from what Ive been told is that SEars wants to keep a few new releases in a smaller area on the floor.

Eventually have new releases slowly creates backstock/clearance over time. So theres a chance over a couple years the bins could re surface. OR they may just opt to send old games back if they dont sell after the first month or two.

I asked a SEars employee at a store near me about this. He told me "We're getting rid of the old games and only going to sell new ones." To which I commented, "Right but when the new games get old you'll have clearance again right?" His reply was "No, we're getting rid of all our old clearance games.". Obviously logic isn't his strong suit. The new games from this year are going to have very little demand in two years from now. It's like going to Kmart and seeing them trying to sell PS2 games. Good luck with that! Better yet, I was at some really rural Kmart locations while driving out to visit family for vacation and they were selling (no joke) GAMEBOY COLOR games for $24.99!

I bought quite a bit of stuff from the Amherst store when it was 50% off, so I think I had gotten everything I wanted from that location before the 75% hit, though I can't visit that location all the time so its very well I could have missed the 75% easily. There are still some accessories and systems that are leftover from previous clearance cycles around some of the WNY Sears.

Ironically I have rarely, if ever seen anyone at any Sears in the WNY area buying video games besides myself over the years. I do see people coming in for TV's all the time. So I am guessing all these clearance DS systems were bought by employees or customers who came in for TV's and saw the prices. Or perhaps a mom who just happened to wander by from the clothes department. I can totally understand why they are phasing it out. I do see people buying games and electronics at Kmart though, thus they have a much larger gaming department.

The prices reported for the DSI XL must be YMMV. I went to my local Sears today and they had a blue one with a shelf label of $129.99. I had the employee scan it at the register and it came up at $129.99. This is pretty disappointing when so many people are finding them at $80 or less.

I don't want to start a frenzy because it is EXTREME YMMV but I hit a store with additional 90% off clearance today. Went to a bunch more hoping to repeat or even some at additional 50-75% and nothing. But if one store is doing extra % off I'm sure there's others doing something, I would say not worth a trip to check but if you're in the area it could be worth it. The store had everything on a table in the middle of the mattress department so look around if there's NO clearance in the department.

Not sure if I should post a list of my haul its a tad extreme.

I used the google shopping to search and save myself a trip. Only select colors are on clearance in my area, and they still aren't cheap enough, so I passed.

I worked at the Blvd Sears elec dept for about a year and you got to know 2-3 of the Ebayers. Depends which location but there are some guys who buy in bulk

Well Blaster hes not too far off. Its the same thing I suggested in my post.

I believe whats going to happen is after a new release game is out for a couple months, instead of marking it down over and over again, I think they will send the games back immediately. I hope its not the case but makes more sense to the company.

Probably a good chance there will be drops today, as February is a short month, so I don't think they will wait until next Friday. Good as time as any to swing by your local.

For there to be drops, there have to be clearance games. There are no clearance games to be found. At least not for three Sears I go to.

Clearance wire bin at my local Sears is almost empty. The only games left were WoW Cataclysm for $3.94. I had expiring SYW point so I just decided to grabe them. I guess I can easily flip it for a few bucks.

They are still clearancing out some hardware and accessories though, such as Vita memory cards and Wii remote plus, so it is still worth a look to pick over what's left. It's not much, but they still have had drops every month, even if it was only one or two things at a time.

Just to let everyone know I went to my local Sears and they had a 250 GB xbox 360 slim marked from 299.99 to 149.99. Sign said it was being discontinued so it may be YMMV.

I saw this as well, but it was marked used instead of discontinued. I didn't want to pay $150 for a used 360, especially since I can probably get one soon for that price new, so I passed.

It's not a great deal anyway. It's only $50 less than the Black Friday price & I agree that the price will be lower in the new future.

Does sears carry the 32gb cards? I know some stores didn't have them in their B&M locations.

I've only seen 4 an 8 gb at most stores. One store carried 16gb but was not clearancing anything.
