YMMV PS4 and Xbox One games are at Dollar Tree for $1!

Where was this advertised? I didnt see it in any ad.

I have a friend who works at Dollar Tree as a manager, and he told me that they were getting the games in last week, he said that they might be in the ad, but any stores that had them would be advertising them either with a sign in the window, or with a sign in the store. He didn't know if it was going to be the standard DVD and Blu Rays sign that they always use, or if it was going to be a sign that also advertised the video games. But it sounds like a lot of people are finding the games, and that makes me glad that my friend wasn't lying to me. Because, I always want my threads on here to be based on facts.

I really wish that I wasn't sick with Covid 19, because I live ten miles outside of Sacramento, California and they have 20 Dollar Trees in a ten mile radius. I'm sure that I would have been able to find all of the games, and probably the ships from Starlink, also.

That’s how it goes.

Well I’ve been to 5 Dollar Tree and at all five the employees didn’t know what I was talking about. They just kept telling me they only have movies. I did pick up 2 blu rays.

I went to 8 dollartree stores this week, incorporating the stops during normal travel, getting much the same response, and I was NOT asking about games, only blue rays, with very little luck, I was directed to the automotive isle, where there were just some old/unknown dvd/blueray sitting on the bottom shelf. Finally today, I did another run, going out of my way to hit all of them, I found the shadow games for xb1/p4 at 2 stores, right in the front, no real sign other than WOW item, most of the stuff had been picked hard by the time I got there, but at least I found a few games. IMO many of the stores put them out early, or didnt get them, and I wonder how people were actually able to get any of these.

Stopped by a brand new dollar tree in my area today and found both platforms of that Shadow of War game.

 

I'd like to recommend the longhorn steakhouse seasoning if you happen to stroll down the spice aisle. It's quite good.

this is what I remember

 

Shadow of War PS4/xb1
shadow of Mordor on PS4/xb1
30 for 30 season 2 vol 1 dvd
Tim and Eric’s Movie
Amazing Spiderman 2 on bluray
Almighty Johnson’s
Robocop
Monster High
Superhero Girls
Stargate Atlantis- Blu-ray
That 70's Show: Season 3 - DVD

I dont know if this is helpful, my buddy thinks some of the dud stores could simply be behind on stocking shelves, due to staff shortages(people not coming to work and not wanting to work when there), he has convinced me to take another run this weekend, and see if anything thats sitting in the back makes it way out to the floor.

I got to a few stores early.  Only a single copy of a PS4 game (one of the LOTR "Shadow of..." games, not sure which) between the two stores and the remainder were 1-2 each of Xbox One NHL, Scribblenauts and Lord of the Rings games.

 

On the movie front, quite a bit of the titles seemed to be from Magnet Releasing who tends to release a lot of indie genre stuff.  I've noticed their films tend to show up often in these Dollar Tree bins in the past during sales like this.  

 

Both stores had 2 packs of AA and AAA Energizer Max batteries with some good expiration dates (2029) for the dollar each, though.

Does dollar tree get game regularly or is it just this one time?

I've been shopping there for many years and never seen video games there before.

I found only nhl 17. Didnt even bother. A lady nearby told me that someone went around all local dollar trees and scooped all the good games to re-sell.

However, like the above post, I got jojo season 1 (incredibly random, but I'll take it). Also got two dc movies with vudu codes which said they expired, but didnt! I'll take a win, wherever I can.

A long time ago, they had PC games sometimes, and they had original Xbox games. I even got the Burger King games from a local Dollar Tree for Xbox/Xbox 360. But, it has been many years since this has actually happened.

I'm thinking that the games showing up at Dollar Tree is just Warner Bros dumping their extra stock.  I often find DC Comics-themed DVDs there, so that's probably how the Middle-Earth and Scribblenauts games made it in there.

Hmm, since the next gen consoles and HBO max (dc content) coming out, may be they decided to liqudate their warehouses?

Who knows. But, some people have found more of their recent stuff on DVD at the stores. Like movies from 2019.

burt wonerstone

After the whole UMD thing kind of failed, they got in tons of UMD movies, too.  I bought like a dozen movies for my PSP.  And yeah, they had some PC games, especially a lot of PopCap stuff at one point.  But as has been said, it tends to probably be mostly overstock and obsolete stuff publishers are trying to dump, etc.

My mom was nice enough to go to both of our local stores today and look for me, and while she didn't find any games, she did find a bunch of cool animated movies and horror films on DVD and Blu Ray.

My friend who is the manager wasn't working today, or she would have asked him if they were getting them in or not. My mom said that the first store was practically wiped out of everything, and the second store had tons. So, I think the first store may have had them. My friend works at the second store though, so I am hopeful.

Went on a trip to 7 different stores today. My local store still had nothing and most stores had maybe a couple of stacks of picked over movies. But the third times the charm apparently, they had a bunch of full boxes sitting there all stacked up in the electronics isle. For games I only found XB1 SoM, but I got a ton of movies & tv series( most on blu-ray ). :D

My tastes are a little obscure, but here is what my mom picked up for me, based on what I like:

Blu Rays:
The Belko Experiment (A great horror film)

Jack and the Cuckoo-Clock Heart (also comes with a DVD and digital copy)

Fascination Coral Reef 3D (A 3D Blu Ray that plays in my PS4 Pro, but not my Xbox One X for some odd reason, it also comes with a standard Blu Ray of the film)

Earthquake (A Charlton Heston disaster movie from the 1970s, the film San Andreas was a loosely based remake starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, that I did background work in)

Carrie (The remake from a few years ago, also includes a DVD and digital copy)

DVDs:
The Smurfs Season One, Volume One (The first 19 episodes of the show from the 1980s)

Due South The Complete Series (I vaguely remember this show from my childhood, it contains all 67 episodes from all three seasons)

The Lucy Show The Official First Season (A remastered version of The Lucy Show with tons of special features, it contains all 30 episodes of the first season)

Hello Kitty Triple Feature (Contains Hello Kitty goes to the movies, Hello Kitty saves the day, and Hello Kitty plays pretend, which seem to be 55 minute long films)

Tom and Jerry Around the World (Contains 22 cartoon adventures of Tom and Jerry, and I haven't watched it yet, but I assume that these are edited versions to take out any objectionable content)

Batman Unlimited Mechs Vs. Mutants Original Movie (Batman villains are turned into Kaiju, so Batman builds a Megazord to fight them)

Batman Assault on Arkham (Batman Vs. The Suicide Squad, basically)

Space Dogs Adventure to the Moon (One of those cheap looking foreign 3D animated films that they get B-List actors to voice, this one has Alicia Silverstone and Ashlee Simpson)

Tom and Jerry Back to Oz (An animated sequel to the original Wizard of Oz film from the 1930s starring Tom and Jerry)

Osamu Tezuka's Metropolis/Katsuhiro Otomo presents Memories Double Feature (Two great Anime films)

Monster High Frights, Camera, Action! (Blatant marketing of dolls for children pretending to be a movie)

Terror Beneath the Sea (A classic Japanese horror film starring legendary actor Sonny Chiba)
