Christ. I've been waiting for my local Walmart to mark down Quantum Break to something more manageable (it's still $40, the damn game has been in the clearance bin for a month)... I checked again last weekend when I went there on some errands and someone opened the damn thing and stole the code.

 

ARGH.

 

And yes I know the thing's been cheap on Humble, I want the extras.

Have another day before I can pick up my tv and monitor from the store pickup location. Gonna be interesting since they both just dropped to clearance price according to brickseek. Hoping they'll adjust it when I pick up so I don't have to go through any return rebuy nonsense.

One fun thing, I went to a different Wal-Mart yesterday claiming to have the 49" tvs but didn't see them on the floor. Asked a manager who immediately said they had none, checked brickseek today and the quantity is 1 less than yesterday lol

PX24 headset: http://brickseek.com...er?sku=47069369

 

It's OOS everywhere, but one store local to me is reporting it at $10 instead of $20

Does anyone have any experience with these headsets?  They have a 3.3/5 star rating on Amazon.

I mentioned this in a reddit thread at r/ps4deals. They're shitty headphones but great headSETS. If you're looking for a set of headphones for listening to music or for great sound quality, look somewhere else. I bought a pair when they were $25 last year. Used them for like 30 minutes and returned them. They were that bad. The mic was fine, but the sound quality. Jesus Christ the sound quality was horrible. It was like I was using some old JVC headphones from the 80s. I own a pair of sennheiser professional headphones. The cheapest I could find at Amazon for around $30 and they've lasted me almost 3 years now and the sound quality is still FAR superior to these. With that in mind, I'd buy them for $10.

Picked up KH 2.8 PS4 for $15 today (beats the non-GCU BB sale price this week by $5). Bandicoot Trilogy reduced also. I found out about the KH price from Brickseek (I refresh a couple dozen titles a day) and sure enough, the price drop was right. According to Brickseek, this was the only Walmart in my area that had knocked down the price on KH that low so, as always, YMMV.

Brickseek said there were 3 copies but I saw only 2 (including the one I bought).

All I found at my local Walmart was the Super Mario Culturefly box set on clearance for $15. I am checking two other Walmarts tomorrow for more items.

PC. The physical box includes a Steam key.

 

Yes, I'm weird.

Thanks! My store had a bunch but they were hung vertically in one of those plastic strips on two different isles, there didn't really seem to be an isle dedicated to computer storage like my other walmart (which didn't have any of these drives). I got 3.

Just curious, where was the isle located? BS said they have 30 but it wasn’t at their dedicated storage isle. I was in a rush & didn’t see any workers so I didn’t get a chance to ask any workers.

I did see someone scan their phone on those in store scanners things, I guess they were trying to see if the items they wanted were there. I might do the same & look up the bar code online and scan in store.

I usually use these 2.0 storage for music and to fill up with vids & pics and give them to my clients that I shot vids & pics for.

Picked up Switch Disgaea 5 for $25, 3DS Shin Megami Apocalypse for $10, and PS4 Inside/ Limbo for $3  though it was marked $10.

They had a bunch of Wii U Nintendo Select titles for $10, but since everything is seemingly going to Switch I see no point in getting more Wii U. 

 

edit: Oh yeah, Doom VFR for $15.

Success! Picked up my tv and monitor and the online prices adjusted to the in store clearance prices. Can't seem to get anyone in that store to look for the 49" tvs they supposedly have but I guess I'll take what I can get and wait for something bigger to clearance out.

Previous orders of used games have been in excellent condotion. They have always come with a clean case. Disc is in excellent shape. Game in case is plastic wrapped. Not all games have come with a manual, but not all new games come with manual. Dlc codes and inserts have never been included for me. Generally better condition that anything I've gotten from gamestop or amazon. At least that's been my experience. As always with used games it can be YMMV.

I've never bought a used game from Walmart (as I can usually get new ones for less), but I don't think I've ever seen a used game on the rack that didn't have the original artwork. Maybe they do sell them like that, I'm not an expert or anything, but I've personally never seen them without the artwork.

I have seen them without the artwork, which is odd because when you trade games into Walmart they won't take them without the artwork.

Yeah, its pretty sad Walmart can sell better condition used games than the game "specialist" that is Gamestop.

Watched a GS employee accept a PS4 controller clearly chewed on by a dog today, which he then put out on their accessory wall. Thought that was funny lol

I've actually been looking for a decent compound bow or crossbow lately. Sadly this one is still near full price around me but it's worth keeping a watch on.

Better than me. Nobody within a 20 mile range has it.

Not Clearance related but the last few Wal-marts I've stopped by had 1-3 Splatoon Switch Bundles in stock.  Full price but it was weird to see them pop up everywhere again. (Why couldn't they be Odyssey bundles instead?)

I live in the south so most stores have it in stock here, lol.  I was actually looking at these yesterday.  It's not a need so I'll be passing.  They are $250 here.

 

Glad I got the Laptop bundle from a few weeks back, but I was expecting it to be a little faster considering it's processor and 8GB RAM and I was upgrading from six or so year old PCs.  Was hoping to be able to finally play Forza Apex, but it only has .5 VRAM instead of the 2GB.  Unlike my Surface Pro (1st Gen) it actually let me install it and play it with a warning that performance may be affected.  On absolute minimum settings it was still a little janky and the road often turned into the sky textures.  Makes me wish I hadn't hesitated on going for the HP Platinum Gaming laptop last summer.  There was a display model that looked like it had never been turned on or touched and marked as $600 at a store when that store actually dropped them to $150.  Didn't go that day as I had mixed feelings about getting a display model and it was a little out of the way and I was busy that day.  Still, this laptop filled an immediate need to replace my old dying PCs so gaming be damned I guess.

Do yourself a favor and invest in a solid state drive: you’re going to see a far more significant performance bump from that than you will from upgrading your RAM or getting a machine with powerful processor. Depending on your budget, the brand and how much storage space you need, you can get a great SSD for anywhere from $100-$400. Old spinning disk hard drives are still good for pure raw storage of files, but modern operating systems and programs are so demanding now that an SSD is practically a necessity in laptop computers.

Did some brickseeking, and of the half dozen Walmarts in my area, that single store was the only one that had those games on clearance. I did get a PS4 Shovel Night for $7 at another one though.
