What is an online return? I thought B&M and online were treated as separate? Then the B&M has to discount it 70%?


The typical clearance cycle for Target is 30%/50%/70%. A clearance item will be marked as such and be one of these percentages off. If someone returns an item sold at Target.com only in store, then it may be found real cheap with one of those "As Is" stickers since the store cannot effectively merchandise it. Those "As Is" prices are across the board as far as percentages go though.

Yea, it was probably a return.

Only thing I saw in my targets clearence area was that Wii party game for $20.

There were a handful of us who got the deal though, not just the OP.

This could be one of those deals where its only clearanced at some Targets (like the smaller stores). The OP clearly posted a picture showing its not an online return, but a regular in-store clearanced item.

By the way, the two Targets I went to today had it at $59.99.

Dammin, you're all making me wish I purchased it, haha.

I mean, I'll eventually get the Wii U (read: in a year or two), so I'm guessing it'll be sub-20 when I get the Wii U.. eventually...

I think Wii U was worse performance wise on all of digital foundry's head-to-head comparisons. Only reason I may still pick up a few is for the added content/features....

I think they said PS3 is worse, but Wii U doesn't get the dlc or all the dlc.

I think DF said that the Wii U versions usually have some advantages.

Like Batman's fps drops a bit to 24 frames but it is hardly noticable in game. And they say the game has FXAA or something that the other versions don't have

Trine 2 is a better example, a multiplatform game that is best on Wii U (OTHER THAN PC VERSION of course)

Yeah, you're right -- my mistake. I should have said Wii U wasn't the best performer on any of their current head to head comparisons. If the Wii U ports were clearly superior, I probably would have eventually bought them to have the best version.

I was so excited when I got to Target and saw a pile of 5 blue Wii U cases sitting in the clearance rack.

Too bad they were Ben 10 at 70% off. :P They didn't appear to have any Mass Effect and the SKU was still 59.99...

I think this says it all:

"Aside from some cute but non-essential gamepad features, it's safe to say that Mass Effect 3 on Wii U is a solid enough conversion but offers nothing of substance to elevate it over the existing Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game - it's clearly an improvement over the lacklustre PlayStation 3 release with a higher performance level, but across the overall run of play it's somewhat disappointing to see a vintage 2005 console with slower GPU and less RAM match and indeed exceed the quality of the experience found on the brand new Nintendo hardware."

The PS3 version is the worst of the bunch.

We COULD just open up a thread on performance of consoles somewhere is this forum, or we COULD use the thread for it's intended purpose.

Decisions, Decisions.

Where are you peeps located that they are having the clearance items?? Target is usually very consistant - i drove one year from Ga to upstate NY to see my parents, and each time I stopped for gas I hit a Target and they all baiscally had the same clearance.....so the the heck on this one !

Checked my store - which fails utterly at marking shit down and nothing

They still have 3 copies of Uncharted II GOTY that should be clerance ( $6.98 ) and still have 3 copies of ME 3...
