Earlier yesterday morning I called all the locations in my area that showed up on Sony Store's website, all Star Oceans were cleared out. Damn. I really wanted that one.

I went to WEM after work last night and manged to pick up DA:O and R&C:CiT. no WKC of FFXIII. Some Fifa.NHL/Madden 10, the bromance game (army of 2 40th day) Wolverine and a few others not really good enough to mention.

Those looking for Ratchet and Clank titles are better off to hit EB since they are selling for $9.99 used (along with KZ2 and Uncharted).

Was a bit disappointed that the hoarders got to this one first. Was hoping to get on WKC or FFXIII.


WOOT ARMY OF TWO is still availaible??!!? NICEEE

Yeah, the Bayshore location in Ottawa only had a few $10 games left as of yesterday night, but they were probably not the ones most people are looking for; not the ones being mentioned here at least.

Sorry, can't remember the titles. Think it might have been Madden 10, Lost Planet #1, and some old music/rhythm game.

Either Moncton, NB was cleaned out or they had jack to begin with.

I picked up Prince of Persia. There wasn't much else. Sad as I really wanted army of two and Kane & Lynch. Oh well maybe next time. :)

yesterday, went to the windsor location (devonshire mall)
only ones of interest were both ratchet and clank games for my gf (I played them both already)
we find the first one, so the guy is going thru the big stack of games, finds the second one and PUTS IT ASIDE FOR HIMSELF!!!!!
i go, guy, what the hell are you doing
oh i'm gonna buy this for my nephew for christmas
but i specifically told you I was looking for both R&C games, and i'm here to buy them
but its the same game **looks at cover** oh, its not. But come on, this is for a 7 year old for christmas dude (he was telling me about 5-6 other games he bought before this for him/his nephew)

i'm not a confrontational person (but if I want to be, I can), but looking back, I should have exploded at this guy

Anyone know if the Vancouver stores are cleared out yet? I have a feeling they've already been raid...


Yeah I work at Metrotown, there was nothing but the crappy games left at that one. I want Star Ocean soooooooooo bad at that price, oh well.

I'm really confused... I went yesterday to the Sony Style Store in the Westfield Valley Fair Mall in Santa Clara, CA, and had them ring up White Knight Chronicles, Fifa 10, and a few others on the list and they were all ringing up at full price. The employees knew nothing about the clearance, and kinda made me feel dumb about asking... Soooo, what the hell is going on!!??

@Darshminder

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic, but this deal is posted in the Canada forum. I'm guessing that it isn't valid in the states. If it is any consolation, most of the good games were pretty scarce so you aren't missing much.

Oh wow, and you can clearly see the FS price tags, meaning he probably price matched them for like 5 bucks...whatever happened to people who buy games to play them...

Funny replies to his thread though! :applause:

It's a small world...er, forum. Here he is gloating about what he hauled in. It's funny how even his RFD brethren are flaming him.

You know it's gotten to a point when you don't even have an interest in these 'clearance' type sales due to the abundance of hoarders around the GTA. Would've been nice to grab a few games, but by the time I put pants on and drive to the closest Sony Store, all the good stock is gonezo. Of course, if a fellow CAG snagged some extra's I would love to buy a copy of Star Ocean or WKC for a reasonable price, but alas, doesn't seem too many people here had much luck!

You surf CAG with no pants on? I thought it was an urban myth.

Actually ejamer, Wii games are hoard-bait as well since they retain high TIV's. Just look at the FS list for the TV: all recent releases except for the Wii first-party games (Zelda is 4 years old!)

If anyone in Vancouver wants Star Ocean, I have a sealed copy that I have no use for (and can't be bothered to return). I'll be willing to trade it for 2 qualifiers at FS for the PSP deal (>$9 TIV).

Yesterday I saw a copy of Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City Stories/Vice City Stories (Ps2) for $4.99 at Yorkdale mall. If I didn't already own it, I would have snatched it up in an instant.

It was in New Mexico but the print-out is too old now as it was dated for Nov. 25th.

Also me buying all those games at 9.99 shot up red flags at bestbuy, I don't think they will be taking print-out sell papers anytime soon.

I was just at the Eaton Centre Sony Store.
:ps3:
GH:Aerosmith - $9.99
Rock Band Track Pack 2 - $9.99

:ps2:
SingStar Amp'd Bundle w/Mics $4.95

I picked up the SingStar and I'll probably go back tomorrow for the Aerosmith. I actually like Aerosmith and I liked that game on Wii. Might as well buy it again now.

If you want to gamble, leave the games there. Buy the gift card deal instead -$50 gc get a $50 off $100 coupon valid dec 26-jan 9. go back after Xmas and get twice as much.

interesting. b/c I don't see GH:A going anywhere it gets a lot of hate for some reason. and I can take or leave RBTP2. I'll have to see if I have $50.

Go to store, buy min $50 gc, get coupon. They have signage on the counter and staff are wearing a tag to that effect to. Only few hours left thought

The risk being, they might have sold a lot of them and have people waiting for them to open(been well discussed on rfdhoardervlle)

hm.. well it would be a nice way to buy a GH band set but I'm not gonna worry too hard over it. if i can make it, i make it. If not then I'll probably use the money to get Pikmin from what's his face.

either way thanks for the heads up zoro
