I was just at two different Targets in Massachusetts (Leominster and Worcester) and both had their entire stock of Vita games on clearance from between $5-12 per game.

 

Sorry for the crappy picture, best my phone could get.IMG_20150426_172029.jpg

I believe there's a couple titles not on clearance like Tearaway, LEGO Chima, and one or two others.

My store had their entire stock of Vita clearanced, but that's all of it right in the picture sadly.

My store has God of War Ascension Collector's Edition and other items moved to where clearance is usually and are charging full original release day price for them. Stupid Target store.

Correct. MLB 15 The Show is another, which shows up on Brickseek at the Worcester store.

Hmm..I'll have to check at my local Target again. They had titles like the Ninja Gaiden, Hot Shots Golf, etc. on clearance recently. But more recent games, like MLB 15, were in an entirely different area and definately not clearanced.

So not sure if it's ALL Vita games but certainly all but the newer ones.

When Tearaway is still selling for $39.99, this is most definitely a rumor.

My local Target had a bunch of price tags saying the Vita games were $5-12 each, but I couldn't actually find any games except Borderlands 2 for $19.99.

My store had those and a few more all between like the 5-10$ range. Too bad I already had most of it from Plus or whatnot

Most Vita titles have been on clearance for several weeks at Target.  Tearaway is among those that is not.

Most of the crap being clearanced is games that came out at or around launch, and Freedom Wars. Target never really stocked most Vita games anyway. 

 

As long as Atlus, XSEED, and even NIS exist, I doubt most Vita owners will be hurting for games. Unless there's still a few Vita owners waiting for a console-quality CoD or something. If you're a niche Japanese game fan, you're going to be okay.

You know what else isn't clearance yet? Dungeon Hunters Alliance, a release day title...

Not to go back and forth with another longtime CAG, but I was only pointing out the fact that the word "entire" in the thread title was incorrect. Which it is.

Grabbed Uncharted Golden Abyss for 11.98. Too bad I have no way to play it since it's not compatible with PS TV and I don't have a VITA.

Agreed, just making the point again since this has been going on for weeks.

The Target I went to today had 2 loose Vita games and 2 behind the locked cabinet.

The 2 loose ones were Gravity Rush for $4.58 on clearance (which I bought a couple of weeks ago at a different Target for the same price) and Street Fighter X Tekken for $39.99 (WTF?).

In the cabinet was MLB 15 and The Walking Dead Season 2 for regular price.

 Still need to pickup uncharted for my collection but can never find a good price for it and my target does not carry it. Sigh*

Tell me dude. My 2 closest targets have inventory that should have been clearance out years ago that are all in one corner, but all still full priced. Like I remember recently seeing a Littlebigplanet 2 move bundle and when I scanned it, it rang up as $120. Like, they still have full priced PSP cases.

My local Target has been buzzard-picked for weeks; I managed to snag anything worthwhile (Uncharted, Gravity Rush, Jak Trilogy, Sly 4) a month ago when CAG first clued me in to the clearance.

 

I just got back from checking once more to be sure, and all there is is the shovelware. Several copies of Smart As, a couple of MLB: The Show, and one or two All Stars Battle Royale.

 

I guess all that's left is the quiet markdown of the Vita itself. Because there's no price at which anyone will be snapping up five copies of Smart As.

Not the whole stock, but all those games that were $5 at best buy already were there. I still see stuff like Minecraft at regular price on the displays.

It's a shame that they forced in the touch controls.  They really didn't need to do it.

After I had to open the first game using the touch screen with three swipes I was over the novelty. I love the game, but that stuff was really unnecessary. Saying that, I wouldn't mind a HD remake for PS3 or PS4.
