Today when I went to my local store I noticed a sign saying "Video Games $6." There wasn't much variety and they were mostly budget games, but it may be worth checking out.

I remember seeing Geometry Wars, Kromaia, Apex Legends and IIRC a soccer game for PS4, and just Lego Worlds for Switch. I didn't check their Xbox games; all the games were locked behind the counter and they just brought them out on request.

This might be good for a stop over, since it's right next door to my supermarket. Thanks for the heads up.

It's funny that you mentioned this.  This afternoon, I found 360 and PS3 games in a box that I bought when Big Lots clearanced out its video game stock years ago.  The more things change, the more they stay the same.

When I saw this, I thought someone had revived a zombie thread.  I think the PS3/360 clearance was in 2013 or 2014?

 

Might have to check this out.

Went and they were behind the register. Only two games both switch, Sonic Forces, and Cartoon Network Battle Crashers, guy at register said he thought they were $20. Don’t know if he was right or not but I wasn’t interested at that price. Hope he wasn’t lying to me.

Was just at my local store and didn't see any.  Just a bunch of DVDs and blu-rays.

PLEASE NOTE:

 

For anyone interested in these games they will vary by store, be either located in the "LOT" (a separate area with white shelving usually near the front with themed items) be locked up, or have cards you bring to the register.

 

Switch games are $20, Switch Lite is $199... However this batch of games were all $6. 

 

So far I have found the following:

 

Apex Legends XB1
Bioshock Infinite XB1/360
Titan Quest XB1
Just Dance 2015 XB1
Victor Vran Overkill Ed. XB1
Fade to Silence XB1
8 to Glory PS4
Life is Strange BtS XB1
Geometry Wars XB1/PS4
Dragon Age Inquisition 360/PS3
 
Remember Big Lots is a buyout store, so this maybe be the first and only or the first of many... So if you see a game you want snag it while its there!
 
Also, if you are a Big Lots reward member your coupons work. Including the %15 off for signing up emailed to you and the %20 off you get randomly.

Apex legends has enough points for a battle pass?

Two stores nearby had the games in the movie section. It's pretty sleazy that two of the games for sale (Battleborn and ArmaGallant: Decks of Destiny) are literally unplayable due to server shutdowns.
 
Besides what's already been mentioned, I also saw :xb1: Battle Chasers: Nightwar and :ps4: Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Lots of complaints from users who didn't receive the 1,000 coins advertised in the boxed versions, seems to be a known issue that can be fixed by contacting EA support.

Last time I was in a nearby store they had/have 3 Switch games for $20 each. Cartoon Network Battle Crashers, LEGO Worlds, and Sonic Forces. Just checked the site and they've added Sonic Mania (NSW) for $20 as well.

Who was here when Big Lots in 2012 had that major liquidation / clearance out (up to 90% off) on all of their video game inventory (3DS, Wii, DS, PS3, Xbox 360) in-store nationwide?

I joined a little while later than that so I only got to see the scraps. Nothing I really wanted though.

The Big Lots stores in my area never had games to begin with.

It does. I picked up the Lifeline and Bloodhound editions for $6 each. I can't complain, $12 for $20 worth of points in addition to 2 weapon skins, 2 rare skins, some banners, and badges.

It's the reason that I asked myself why I own so many factory sealed copies of the Michael Phelps game for Kinect the other day.  :shock:

For those who were wondering, Big Lots has had games several different times. And even at one point they created their own labels. Why... I have no clue, but they were super high quality just plastered with ugly price and caption bubbles.

Anyone recognize these?20220225_200456.jpg

I spoke to a GS rep this week via chat support. The app really crashed last month and I had trouble using the $5 February coupon during checkout. My PRO account was credited 5,000 points for the unused coupon!

Congrats, but I think you posted in the wrong thread, my friend.

That's really great, but I don't truly think there are many gamers who are still buying the games in these stores. I mean, it's much more convenient buying the digital versions from the online stores directly. You don't even have to get out of your house for that. Man, sometimes I wonder when this game development industry will slow down. I'm just tired of all these triple-A projects. That's why sometimes I just like to get on the minecraft skyblock servers and have a casual Minecraft game with some kids.

I don't mind a physical copy at $6. 

I guess I'm late to the party.  Are these near the register or something?
