Old stock (SF vs. Tekken SE, Terraria PS3) popping up @ Target stores

In the Vita thread I noticed members talking about old games popping up out of nowhere, some I've never even seen sold there before. The games were years old and super mint, leading me to believe it's either a reprint or warehouses are shipping out old stored stock.

 

This week I noticed a wall full of older games, some CEs, all as mint as can be. Took a photo, linked below. I did not scan each so prices will vary, especially if the individual stores choose to sell these as a clearance of full MSRP.

Yep these have never left my target. I assume they were just hanging in the back room in a location that was marked emptied but still had product and forgotten until they did inventory yearly. Used to happen at my store sometimes.

Wierd that some of that stuff would start showing up in stores. I run the video game section at my store and we have a whole section dedicated to having all our old games out on the floor instead of just sitting in the back unsold. It's alot of the same stuff I see in that picture minus all the cool CEs, but we've never recieved old games. Its only ever discontinued games coming off the planograms from the regular PS or Xbox aisles.

This may be stores just clearing out their backrooms, and not necessarily stores getting shipments. I remember when I worked for Target, out electronics backroom had stuff stored in it for years and it never got pulled out.

When I first started working 9 years ago we found some old N64 games in the back. Nothing super cool, but it shows how long stuff has sit there.

Are stores getting the CE of Terreria? I did see a bunch of older games in my store but looked like it was just stuff left over from the B1G1 free sale on backstock games.

it varies from target to target, i know the sf x tekken ce was priced at 30? but those codes arent good anymore so its not worth it anyway

My Target had a Terraria CE, didn't know what the hell it was when I saw it. Never heard of it. I also saw a Lightning Returns (PS3) Steelbook Target exclusive in addition to a Thief (PS4) Steelbook Target Edition as well and both were $19.99 each.

So the deal here is "Target has more games than one may assume!"?

I just love the fact there are Modern Warfare 3 and Fable 3 games at the top of the shelf.  I mean wow how long do they keep games like that?

as someone pointed out in another thread, this might have to do with canada closing shop?

Target is showing us that our game backlogs is nothing compared to theirs.
