See, this is what I'm talking about. Target needs to universalize the discounts on their clearances throughout ALL of their stores. My local store has 2 RB2 sets, both PS3. A week ago they were listed clearanced at $69.xx. I checked yesterday, and they removed the cheaper clearance tags, now they are back up to $97.xx!!!


Plus everything at my Target is about 1.5-2x as expensive as most of you are finding when it comes to clearances. Sometimes it will take 3 weeks before a clearance item drops again.


What's the deal with Target and discounts? Is it based on regional sales, or is every store just doing their own thing? It seems so friggin random.

Every man dies; not every man really lives...

As far as I can tell it dropped today, wasn't this price last week

Checked my target and it was all but empty. The only things of note that I recall were

Batman AA $14 (360)
Elder scrolls IV game of the year $14 (360)
Red Steel 2 $14 (Wii)

Sadness too as I would have snatched both Batman and Elder scrolls if they'd been for the ps3. Other than those games it was just some of last years sports games like madden and such.

I scanned a ton of games and no new prices from last week. Except rockband 2 dropped from 97 to 68. Gooing by ebay prices that's a great deal

Went to a Target I just discovered today. This place was freaking LOADED with clearance games, I have never seen a Target with so many. There was over 100 games, easily. Picked up a few games at 50% off because it takes paying two toll roads to get there and didn't wanna leave empty handed. Plus they were the last copies, I got:

:ps3:[207 24 0349] Resident Evil 5 Gold Edition $19.98
:360:[207 22 0348] Elder Scrolls IV Oblivion Game of the Year Edition $14.98
:360:[207 22 0343] Batman Arkham Asylum $14.98
:wii:[207 26 0556]Final Fantasy Crystal Chronicles The Crystal Bearers $9.98 (75% off)

I might be making more runs to this Target in the future because it seems to be out of the way and doesn't seem to get much foot traffic considering all the games I saw. Good stuff!

Picked up these 360 games up this weekend:
Saboteur $4.98
Borderlands Add-on Pack $3.47
Scene-It: Bright Lights Big Screen $4.98

Also saw Batman AA for $29.98, MX vs ATV Reflex for $9.98, Bioshock for $7.98, and some backyard baseball game as well. I only looked at the 360 stuff, but this particular store all the clearance games were mixed in with the normal price games locked in the plastic prison.

Did you try scanning them or entering the DPCI into a scanner? Someone could just have removed the lower price tag to get people to not buy them so they can pick it up later for a lower price. I've seen it happen a few times at my Target.

You can still find Hardened editions? I see Prestiges, but everywhere is sold out of Hardened editions.


I'm sure that there are stores out there with a copy or two still in stock. That's the rule of thumb about virtually anything that's Target clearance. You'll hear about games that went clearance MONTHS ago that tend to pop up at someone's Target for 75% or 90% off.

I think you can take up it up to guest services and return it then buy it again. I did it years ago when i bought a clearance item that went down the next day.

picked up rock band classic rock track pack for $10 yesterday at the Burnsville, MN target. $10 is the the exact price point when I start to be willing to buy track packs like that, great price for 20 more rock band songs. They had several copies left.

Problem is if they bought the last copy, then they won't price it down since it's no longer in their system as in-stock.

Also at the same target(sorry didn't post earlier, previous posts were from my phone)
:ps3: Dragon Age Origins $7.48
:ps3: White Knight Chronicles $12.48

Awesome prices, no other targets I checked had marked these down to that though yet so I don't know if this target that's usually slow is getting on the ball, or if they are just prepping for BF since it's typically a busy store.

Lots of drops at my store, including the new stuff that just came out over the weekend went immediately down to 50-75% off. (strange that it'd come out and then immediately drop in price, instead of holding for a week or two to see what might sell)

I picked up Elder Scrolls Oblivion GOTY 360 for $14.98 (I'm assuming it won't survive to 75% with BF in the way) and Carnival Games wii for $7.48 (first game, not the new one).

I saw 2-3 copies of Just Cause 2 PC for $9.98, didn't realize it only uses Steam for DRM; kind of wish I had grabbed it now. Maybe they'll have some copies left after work...

Picked up 2 Rockband 2 SE for PS3 for $34.98 each. I bought 2 for the extra insturments since I hear the drums are way better than the RB1 drums.

Picked up :

Mass Effect 2 :360: -13.89
Batman AA :360: - 14.98

Saw :
Super Street Fighter 4 :360: : 13.98
DAO :360: : 14.98
Sin and Punishment :wii: :12.89

Tons more but these were the stand outs IMO. Good time to shop Target clearance, it's been dry as hell past couple of months!
