Ended up getting the first couple volumes of Singstar for $6 a piece. Too bad I didn't get that 50% off clearance this time around.

Every single game you can get for cheap had one of those "value" tags on it, raising the price to $10-20 dollars. Who the hell does Kmart think they're fooling? $.75 LocoRoco is $10. $3 Lost Planet is $15. Bunch of rat-bastards.


It's because they don't get any money by returning the game back to the vendor. So by slapping a value tag on the product, they can preserve its value while at the same time making the game look like a good deal to someone that's buying games for a kid. From a business standpoint, it isn't a terrible practice.

Both Kmarts I went to had games on tables in electronic. With a ton more up near the registers on 4-sided, with a basket on top, carts.


Yes, there was definitely some activity there today.

Nice on NCAA 10. I found 3 during March Madness for 9.99 each and made $150 on Ebay. I've looked all over town for more but they are gone where I am.

I am betting the value games are ordered from a separate vendor and bought in bulk, since I have seen the same game at 2 different prices. I don't think Kmart is pulling anything here, but raising the prices on clearance games is shady, I bet they are doing that just so that they don't have to honor the b1g1 that does not work because their system is screwed up. If they don't have any clearance games in the store then they don't have to honor the ad.

Off topic but I am having trouble charging my PS3 keypad, I tried every USB port in the house, which is a lot but the only thing that charged it was my Xbox 360 S model, I don't have the PS3 system yet, but I will be getting it soon. Would it be safe to use a Motorola cell phone charger (input 100-240v, 50/60hz, 0.15A, output 5.0V 550mA) with it, the charger is a wall plug with a USB port on the end.

I know about Open Office, but I don't really have a use for it right now, or else I would install it.

open office sucks. when larry ellison bought sun microsystems, the open office team forked the project and formed libre office. Libre Office is the one you want to get. It is fantastic and open source.

Haven't seen it noted in this thread yet, but Sports Champions (PS3 - game only) was also $6 at my local K-Mart. Buzz Quiz World (PS3) rang up at $6 here and not the $4.50 that some have reported.

Dawn of Discovery (Wii) was $4 here too.

Those $4.50 prices were only for last week during the B1G1 50% off on clearance games. I know because the :ps3:Tony Hawk Ride bundle that I bought a week or two earlier for $6 came up $4.50.

But it only seemed to work on certain games apparently, since the :360:DJ Hero bundle that I picked up with it for the BOGO 50% came up the full $10 that it also scanned in as at the scanner.

What's really cool though is that they gave me the THR bundle for $2.25 after deducting 50% from the $4.50 price at the registers.

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

I found a few of those Digimon's at a distant K-Mart last September for the same price. I'm surprised they haven't dropped any lower.

Nice job on Red steel 2 bundle. Sears has it for $18.
FYI- No more heroes 2 was $2.97 at my sears

My Kmart didnt have any good clearance. I know this is a game forum, but
I found a Craftsman 4 Gallon 5Hp Wet/Dry Vac for $20.
Sears still sell it for $80 and dont match Sears prices

Got my 10$ GC for the screw up, went back to the K-Mart and damn near anything of value was gone. (Saw a few GH:Metallica's though).

Just curious, do GC's from K-Mart work at Sear's too?

Not sure. Read the back of the giftcard.

If it says Sears holding, etc.
They are both the same company, but not sure. U can call the 1-800 # that is on the card

I have the digimon PS2 game, I wouldn't advise buying to play it, the battles are EXTREMELY and excruciatingly slow and the encounter rate must be like 90% so every time you take like 3 steps you have to battle a monster. If you want to play a good digimon game track down a copy of Digimon Dawn or dust for the DS from Gamestop they are the bees knees, if you can find the original Digimon World for DS its even better than those 2, I lost a big chuck of my life to that game no joke, it was really that good. Its Pokemon done right. Your monsters live on a farm instead of living in a box like they do in pokemon, while they are on the farm they grow and gain stats and stuff. If Pokemon would only steal this concept...

Went to the local kmart yesterday and got all excited when I saw a really old xbox live 3 month in a blister pack, a 4000 point card and tons of 1600 points cards in blister packs. Only to have them ring up for retail......

Did they start making those again or is this kmart just behind on the times?



The 1600 points cards were $16 which is ok but meh.

Wanted:
Halo 3 headset that came with Halo 3 edition Xbox 360

I saw the EA Active 2 bundles for 360 this afternoon at the one Kmart. They were priced at like $3.90. WTF kinda clearance price is that?:lol:

I also saw a :ps2:Singstar Country bundle that was sealed for $5 as well as a standalone of the same game for $5.

Some prices have gone down by about $1 per game, but the names elude me right now.

I also saw a Karaoke Revolution bundle for $10 for :360: in the one Kmart.

Hmmm. My Kmart FINALLY reorganized its game section and marked some clearance items. Saw a bunch of band/guitar heroes...the usual fodder. I ended up getting Genesis Collection and Naughty bear for 5 each. Contemplating whether or not to return Naughty Bear, though...the reviews for it are ABYSMAL. Seems like such a hilarious and interesting concept, though. I guess I could just trade it back into Best Buy if I don't like it.
