I'm tempted by getting an Arcade 1up but afraid I'll never use it, even if I mod it (I have like 5 devices I've bought for modding purposes and never gotten around to it).

 

I'm not even sure $199 is a good price for the Simpsons cab considering it only has 2 games.  You're really mainly paying for 4 player capability.  They're probably gone from my store by now anyway, I went Tuesday and I think they only had 1 left, down from a pallet of like 6.  If I do get one, it'll either be a Pac-Man or MK2 legacy edition (if they still have any).

The only good thing about the Simpsons A1up is the 4 player ability if you have the room. I prefer the MK2 legacy cab because of my space limitations and would put a retropie in it

Stores make peanuts on game and movie sales. It's clear most retailers don't care about them and their approach is increasingly, "You want it that badly, pay more since we know you have fewer and fewer options."

According to BBY employees at bluray.com, BBY will stop carrying movies entirely in stores come September.

Video games are next.

Meh. I don't think games will stop being carried anytime soon. A lot of people have switched to streaming for movies. Games are still primarily bought physically (last time I checked).

I don't disagree, though every best buy's media section is now cookie cutter, and most of the game shelves are empty. If a game is in stock, it's left in the warehouse for online orders meanwhile the shelf is bare.

It's been about 50-50 for nearly a couple of years.  But yeah physical isn't going away anytime soon.

If people posted about things like the bags of ice melt or the utility gloves that I see on clearance at my local Walmart, this thread would be jumpin'!  :bouncy:

games are getting closer to 70% digital now.  covid pushed it a lot faster.  still varies depending on the title though.

A few local Walmarts have that Switch Hori Mario Kart wheel set for $70...

 

I keep waiting to see when it will be marked down for clearance -- but, if I'm right, there's no easy way to see if the units are marked down right now, right?  The Walmart website/app doesn't show in-store clearance prices anymore, right?

Been watching Brickseek for Tales of Arise to drop at one of the local Walmarts and saw it hit $15 at one then like a day later drop to $10 so decided to head out and check it.  Turned out they had a whole bunch of stuff clearanced, but I only grabbed stuff I was interested in.  I'd post where, but El Hoardo clearly hit it up like an hour after I was there as everything decent I saw on Brickseek was now OOS.

Although I'd keep an eye out, if this one was clearing stuff out others may be gearing up to do the same.

Weird cause tales of arise always comes up as "no results found in the searched area" for me. Has for awhile along with Scarlett Nexus

Same, but occasionally this one store would pop up.  Tony Hawk 1+2 is the one I'm most interested in, but it's 100% immune to Brickseek.  Sadly still at like $33 at most stores.

What I've noticed is that sometimes the clearance barcode gives a different UPC number than the normal product barcode which might explain why sometimes the products just don't show up even if the stores have them.

 

Yeah, I scanned the brickseek barcode for ToA with the walmart app and it's not showing up.

I've managed to pick up the MK Legacy and Ms. Pacman 40th anniversary cabinets for 199.99 a piece which is really the sweet spot for me on the Arcade 1 ups. They also have 12 and 10 games respectively so it makes it much more appealing compared to the Simpsons. I might make an exception for the Ninja Turtles cabinet though if I ever found that.

Nothing found in my area which I know is bull that site/app sucks. Cause I know scarlet is in cleance for $25. Even if I got inside the store the app scan is still does the same.

Well, the app is officially useless for my local stores. Literally every item in the store (towels, hardware supplies, games, toys...) Comes back as item not found. So what's the point of the app if the entire store seemingly opted out of price scanning?

Yeah the app is really spotty for me anymore.

 

One of the other big things is I think Brickseek not working has to do with SKU's changing when it goes on clearance, which makes it a pain to hunt down the clearance games.

 

I was at a walmart about an hour away from me this weekend hunting for them deep discounts and they had Control Ultimate and Aliens Fireteam elite (PS5) for 30$ each (Games that typically get clearanced out for <$15 from what I've seen here in the past months) sitting on a clearance shelf, but no price checker anywhere near by, and I did not have the time to wait in the line or bother an employee. Sometimes I wish I could just clearly and concisely get the price without the rigmarole.

I’m assuming by app you guys mean the Walmart app? The paid Walmart+version is still working for me but I haven’t tried video games in a while.

Something changed in the past week with Walmart’s inventory system. Non video games that have been clearance price went out of stock on brickseek at every store around me, but they’re still there on the shelves at 6+ deep and still the clearance price.

I’ve regularly seen the discrepancy where Brickseek says it’s there, but it’s not. I’ve never seen it the other way around until now.

Just to be clear. and yes I could search the app store lol. But to confirm. There is a specific app for walmart+ ? Or you're just saying logging in to a walmart+ account on the app? 

 

Edit: Reason I am asking is I am logged in on the app to my sister's walmart+ account, and most items with the scan feature show up as "Sorry, we don't sell this specific item" or something like that anymore. Either that or it gives like the online price when the sticker directly under the item is sometimes less.
