Yeah that was never a thing. What it was was fraud.

Fraud is a dirty word. I like to call it being a smart shopper.

Brickseek showed one WM in my city had two Fallout 3 GOTY 360 editions for $5 (they're $12.88 at all other WM's). Since it happened to be the location 5 minutes from me, I went over there and those games were nowhere to be found. I'm sure they're stowed away under a shelf or something.

Did you check the clearance area

DLC for Fallout 3 and NV aren't signed, so if you own the vanilla versions you can just download the DLC from somewhere online and play it on your 360. Same goes for most games with a GOTY version, like Borderlands and Bioshock.

Yup, first place I looked. This particular WM has a small desk where its clearance games are stacked up but there were only a few junky DS games there. I've seen PS4 games in that area before. They looked in the back for me and said it wasn't there either. Though some have their own experiences, I have personally found Brickseek to generally be very accurate when it comes to inventory, so I'm guessing (especially with more than one copy shown) that they're somewhere in the store.

Heh.  One store by me put out a bunch of the 3 cent games I guess they never sent out.  Unfortunately they ring up as out of system so they're just like "oh, they're $30 still"

Found the Switch version of the Skylanders Imaginators Starter Pack on clearance for $15. All other systems (Wii U, PS3, PS4, Xbox One) were down to $12, but you can find those at Five Below.

I think before when I was asking around trying to find Pokepark II here, there was like one person who ever found that title. I'd trade one of the other 3 cent games I got last time, plus negotiate a bit more in cash or games, if anyone finds an extra Pokepark II.

I remember tbe good ol' days of $60 Wii U's and $90 PS4'S


Not the $60 Wii Us and 3DS XLs. Happened around Black Friday 2014. Sears had a glitch weeks before Black Friday where they accidentally sold the Super Mario/Luigi U bundle and Blue 3DS XLs for $60. It was up on their site for less than 20 minutes yet kept the price up for longer than they should have.

I went to my local Sears and got the Wii U price matched from their own site and TRU to price match the 3DS. The very next morning, every other store that price matched were told NOT to price match those deals because of the giant price gap.

Wow, I remember trying to get those, but most of the Sears near me didn't sell video games anymore. Can't believe it's been 4 years.

 

We need someone to be an hero and make a glitch happen this year.

I'm not sure on just downloading it, but they did have dlc discs for at least fallout 3 that'd let you just install the dlc so I'm guessing they're referring to that in some fashion

It was glorious. The glitches weren't plentiful but happened enough times to keep you excited. We knew a new glitch was bound to happen in X time and puff, it would! It's like Christmas!

Got a 4K TV (via Amazon GCs), HTC Vive, and 3 iPhone 7s from GameStop flips last summer. It was glorious. I haven’t seen any deal deal that comes even close to that.

I picked this up, although I did not see it dropped in many stores yet. Might be great to keep a eye on. I got it for $599 which is a really good deal.

Went pc hunting to some sketchy stores, struck out. One actually had a clearance table, but it had Nascar 06 and Madden 07 with John Madden slipcover among other trash. Also a few Halo Reach metal box CEs for $15.

The penny glitches might be the only thing.

Several years back, like 5-6 years, amazon warehouse would sell stuff CHEAP with their glitches. And it was consistent for about a year or so. One early morning, a few cags discovered some relatively recent games at the time, Crysis 2, LA Noire (around that time) for 1 cent. People bought tons and tons of these penny games and amazon fulfilled them.

It was also a time when Best Buy had no limit. So people were taking 40-50 copies at a time and getting MacBooks, TVs, phones, etc for 50 cents to a dollar.

The best glitch though as far as pricing errors had to be the $99 unlocked S8 phones last year

That penny glitch was gold. I made so much bank off of Crysis 2.

I suggest to keep checking back. That also occurred in some of the stores near me, then later they were in the system for 3 cents.

It was a year ago. Best Buy had Black Friday in July online and instead of taking $100 off the price of the S8 and S8+, it made them $100. You also had to be Elite or Elite Plus because the glitch only happened during the early access sale a day before the sale was available to everyone.
