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

I bought the first season of the Beware the Batman animated series at Dollar Tree, and it put me to sleep yesterday when I tried to watch it.  Great sleep aid for $1.  :applause:

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

I try to check my local dollar tree each week now to see what they have. This past week they had new stuff out and almost all of the dvds/blurays had walmart and kmart price stickers on them lol.

Well, a lot of KMART stores recently closed, so that would explain the DVDs, but KMART stopped selling games back in the Wii era.

FYI, Dollar Trees don't typically restock their movies that frequently. It's only very recently that they've replenished stock monthly.  I would think with supply chains being stifled with Covid-19 that they'll go back to less frequent restocks soon.

Newer stores (mostly the kind switched over from being Family Dollars) seem to get new DVDs every week. Older stores seem to only get them once a month at max.

I found shadow of war for 5 bucks at Walmart. Figured I would never ever find it for a buck at dollar tree.

I'll keep searching for scribblenauts, but outlook is grim.

I saw some of these game titles at Family Dollar... I guess $1 was too cheap. FIFA 2017 for Xbox was $8, Star Fox (the "free" one) for WiiU being sold separately for $5, and Elder Scrolls for PS4 was $5.

Yeah.  Family Dollar has actually had cheap game cardboard displays for years now.  Some people have occasionally found decent stuff, but usually priced $5-13.

Dollar Tree and Family Dollar are the same company, so I assume that these games and DVDs at Dollar Tree are probably overstock from all of the Family Dollar stores that they are closing and converting into Dollar Trees. Apparently the Family Dollar stores have been losing them money for years, but the Dollar Tree stores have always made them money.

People are now finding copies of TitanFall 2 at Dollar Tree. Maybe video games at Dollar Tree is becoming a permanent thing.

titanfall 2 was a great game at 60, good campaign, looks great and runs at 60fps

 

 

multiplayer has no microtransactions, plays like sci-fi call of duty, but much more fun

After weeks of periodically looking, I finally saw 1 game at a dollar tree.

Madden 15 for the X1.

I found Titanfall 2 a few weeks ago. So far its only been a few games though so I wouldn't get my hopes up at a large selection of $1 games.

Agreed. VGs are not going to be a routine thing. Odds are those games were way overproduced, and bought out through either a liquidation or bankrupt retailer. That the games are AAA or big titles that flopped or way undersold is not surprising.

I actually went and looked for the NPH book, but no luck and no new games.  New dump of movies, though, so scored Pulse (Kairo) and [REC] 3.  And they have bags of Bertie Bott's beans and Harry Potter Jelly Slugs in the candy aisle at mine now if anyone's interested in that.

Consider yourself lucky.  Mine don't even have DVDs.

I finally scored a copy of Titanfall 2 for Xbox One today at the Dollar Tree that's less than a mile from me.  The store received a new shipment of Blu-Rays and DVDs, but that might have been the only video game in the box.

Congrats! I feel like I'm finally getting over my Covid 19, but I'm still too weak to go out to stores, so I am happy that people are finding games. I'm living vicariously through all of you.

No sign of Madden or Titan Fall 2.  I did pick up Robocop (2014) on Bluray/DVD. 

Did I win with Cheapy D?  Like how it was a win to buy "Time and Eternity" with CAG whoknows.

Weren't you the one posting that you already caught it twice between March and June, despite the first case of reinfection being recorded just yesterday?

No, I caught it back in March, and I've been sick since then. I'm only starting to feel like a human being again, and it's almost September.

Found Titanfall 2 and a Madden game for Xbox. Didn't get them since I don't have an Xbox and they're not flippable.
