Didn't find nothing again. I get it that someone else might have cleaned out the stores in my area and/or they haven't been put out yet, but dang. 

Not even a hint of hope like finding titles I already own and/or sports video games.

I might cave and just buy the mentioned PS4/XB1 titles at Gamestop that I don't own. 

Sure seems like this is a regional deal.  It wouldn't surprise me that's how Dollar Trees operate when it comes to these specialty items.

The local Dollar Tree happened to be putting out their July movie assortment when I stopped there today. One copy each of Madden 1? and Titanfall 2 for xbone... no other games.

5/5 of the stores local to me already put everything out last week and over the weekend. Don't wait until this weekend. Zero PS4 games at all stores I visited. Only xbox Madden 16/17 and Titanfall 2.


Could always call and ask the store if they put out the movies/games.

Stores near me havent put anything out yet

I generally do. The 5 stores near me are all under 5 miles in any direction and usually on my daily routes.

 

As far as asking employees... good luck. From my experience DT employees are 1,000% worse than walmart employees. I've asked DT employees if they have movies out and was told no, when I'm looking right at a table of movies in the store. Other times I've asked if they had games mixed with the movies from last months shipment, was told "no we don't get games here". I drove by and went into that same store 10 minutes later, sure enough I found games and movies on the front 'item of the week' table.

Are old maddens even worth a dollar?  Not a joke question, really interested if I can actually trade it on craigslist for actual games I want

Some people enjoy sports games, even the old ones. I also think the farther back that you go, the less microtransactions that those kinds of games contain.

Titanfall 2 and Madden 17 around me

WHAT??? $1 for Titanfall 2 is a huge score. I bought the deluxe edition digitally for $4.50 and I thought I got an awesome deal but you one up'd me. Titanfall 2 is soooo good!!

Still nothing at two stores I checked today. But one of them had a bunch of unopened boxes in the aisles, so they may have just been slow getting things out.

I'd be happy just to find Starlink ships and weapon packs.  I'm really starting to think those were just for the East Coast Dollar Trees.

Saw 4 xbox copies of madden. No ps4. Not into sports games. Will check another location tomorrow.

Thanks for all the updates guys and gals. I'm guessing that video games might become a permanent thing at the Dollar Tree as they change over more Family Dollar locations to Dollar Trees. I recently read an article that Family Dollar stores are losing them money, while the Dollar Tree stores are making them money. So, they are converting more Family Dollar stores into Dollar Trees in the near future. I imagine that these games are probably the same games that they were getting for their Family Dollar locations.

Really, it had no game in it? That adds some credibility to the rumor that these are from Family Dollar. Since those are all "pre-owned" games. Well, I hope that you are able to get your dollar back, that sucks. I also hope that somebody didn't steal the disc out of it.

He did buy a game for a dollar so there should be a disc inside, but I don't know if I would return it to get a dollar back. Think of it as a replacement case. I have bought replacement cases for various systems for a dollar each in the past. But yeah, there damn well should be a disc in it. Damn thieves!

I also learned the hard way. Now I shake every game I buy to make sure I can hear it inside the case.

This round seems to only be xbox Madden '16, Madden '17, and Titanfall 2. No PS4 games.

 

On that note, does anyone have a copy of PS4 Shadow of Mordor to trade from the last round?

Still nothing at all in other stores. I give. It's not worth the trouble.

PM sent.  

 

From what I can tell, if you didn't get the games as soon as the shipment is put out on the floor, you probably will be out of luck.  I happened to go into the stores on Friday afternoons and Saturday mornings, and that's when I found the few copies that I saw in the last batch.  I went out again this morning, but I didn't see Madden or Titanfall 2.  Mainly, I've been after the DC animated movies and the TV seasons on DVD.

I was surprised, the local Dollar Tree actually had a game - Titanfall 2 for XBox one.  Picked up the lone copy.

Go around November, you may have more luck

Just found this thread over @ blu rays and that seems to be the most wonderful time of the year @ dollar tree, last year at least.  With new consoles coming out and physical media taking a hit, the next few years @ dollar tree might be great places for old gen and blu rays.

 

From me going over that thread, it would seem dollar tree buys walmarts old inventory when walmart refreshes their media stock for the latest movies to sell for higher prices

How much are they buying these things for, that selling them for $1 nets a profit?

Pennies, probably. Retailers are purging old physical media inventory, deciding they'll never be able to sell it.
