If you used the barcode scanner of the Target app, i have encountered similar issues with it bringing up full price while the in-store scanner and checkout will give the correct price.

It may also be that brickseek was reporting the new markdown price as i think electronics price drops happen monday or tuesday, but may have changed.

But if they could not find any copies on the floor or in the back, then it won't matter much.

I have experienced items being nowhere to be found and then suddenly on an end cap a week or so later.

The whole GPS location determining pricing in the app definitely confuses things as you may get a different price showing up than you expect. Target.com will obviously always shows the online price while the app usually does if you are a certain distance from the store. In general, it should display the instore price when searching for an item while the barcode scanner seems to vary between online price, instore price, or potentially not being found at all.


The issue I had (and the other poster I think) was that it rang up $17.98 and then 2-3 days later reverted back to a $39.99 price.

Ok. I have had that occur before as well. Certainly seems odd to put something on clearance and then raise the price back to retail after an certain time limit or perhaps quantity sold.

Yeah, I've noticed this before for other items as well...for example, :switch: Ultra Street Fighter II was on clearance for $11.98 at the Target near my office as recently as three months ago, but they just a little while ago changed it back to MSRP (both Brickseek and Target.com list the item as $39.99 or N.A.).

Sometimes a restock makes a game go back to full price. I have also seen it where a game is on clearance, restocked as a Greatest Hits (or Platinum Hits) version and entered into the price system at 70% off price for a few days and then goes to MSRP.

Didn’t something similar happen to Project Cars or Dying Light or one of those games that got a Greatest Hits relabel for the PS4?

Quite the opposite for Dying Light: they reactivated 70% clearance price of Dying Light vanilla edition and used it for the GH GoTY edition. It stay like that for a long time too.

I was just at my Target the other day and they had loads of copies of the new GH version of Dying Light: The Following but I just assumed they were $20-30. Are you saying it would be $6-9 (assuming 70% clearance)?

1. You can get Mew from trading so its not the end of the world if you wanted to use the ball.

2. Do you mean Mewtwo? You can't get Mew in R/G/B/Y. Not unless you hack or go to one of the giveaways at a Gamestop/EB HmGames or Toys R Us.

No, there's an easy way to get a level 7 Mew in R/G/B/Y. No hacking or promotions required.

No, $15 was the 70% clearance price of Dying Light vanilla. They reused it for GH version. You could wait for a clearance for these GH, but who knows when that gonna be.

Most people don't know how to exploit glitches or battle data to trigger the mew fight. Also, lol why was this just now quoted.

That was from me! Always interesting to find stupid clearance or sale prices. Today I found Apple Watch accessories on locking pegs in the accessory aisle... and the packaging had hanger hooks, they come right off!

Thanks for this...quite a few local stores around me with healthy stock and at this price point. None of them having Dying Light in stock, though...I guess it’s been too long to hope for still having it at 70% off clearance, thought from all I’ve heard $20 is still not bad for the quality of the game and DLC you get.

I can see your point. $40 at target, walmart, or amazon honestly is irrelevant though since all the retailers pricematch one another. I'm still sitting on my target $36 PSC too, sealed and in my attic. Maybe one day I'll open it.


Lmao it's already in the attic? I don't even know what's in my attic, besides the spiders, ghosts, and murderers.

Didn't feel like hooking it up yet since my entertainment stand looks perfect the way I have it. Plus I'd have to swap HDMI's from the other Nintendo classics to this as well. I have my stand wired perfectly and clean, just never felt like adding more to it yet.

Reminds of that batch of games last year that went straight from MSRP to 70% off without warning...I think that PS4 Digimon game was one of them, IIRC.

Yup, I snagged the Digimon Hackers Memory game for like $8.98.
