Portage kmart is closing. All games were 25% off and hardware was 10% off. They had several ps4s and xbox ones and wiiu in stock.

Any decent deals?   

 

I'll be swinging up through Portage this weekend.

I didn't look to deep but the x1 for $450 and ps4 for $360 was good if you need one. taqysyte.jpg

Madison CAGs: what are your thoughts on the various game stores in the city?  And where (if anywhere) can I find imports?  The only stores I'm aware of right now are:

 

- GameStop: skipping this...

 

- Pre-Played: went there today, huuuuuge place.  Prices are a bit high (or maybe CAG just has me jaded), but the selection is quite a bit better than any other brick-and-mortar store I've been to.

 

- Video Game X-Change: tried to go there today, but they had just closed, damn.  I'm on the west side, so it's a bit of a drive... might try again tomorrow.  Got a gift card for this place, and I'm curious to see how much is on it-- I just subleased an apartment from a married couple who were moving out of the state, and when I picked up the keys, I saw they'd placed a gift card in the envelope. :D  Made my day.

There's another Video Game X-Change on the near east side:

 

https://goo.gl/maps/eW4aq

 

I stopped in there a few months ago and they have a lot of different stuff, so you're bound to find something.  They have a pretty large retro selection including reasonably-priced consoles ($20-$50 for new or refurb NES, Genesis, SNES, N64, PS1, GameCube, etc.), but like Pre-Played the games are mostly priced at market value.  They definitely had import stuff when I was there, and there's a big glass case kind of in the middle full of random items like toys, stuffed animals, and trinkets (mostly Nintendo IIRC).  I didn't even realize that they still had a store on the west side, but their old west side location was about a third of the size of the Atwood Ave. store.  You could easily kill an hour or two there.

 

Aside from VGX and Pre-Played you can find a decent selection of games at Half Price Books, but since they don't specialize in games they don't always have a lot.  At the east side HPB they usually have the really good stuff in the locked glass case.  HPB also does 30/40/50% off coupons a few times a year if you sign up for their emails.  Pawn America has a lot, but their video game section is pure chaos and their prices are pretty high.  Sometimes you can get lucky at Goodwill or Salvation Army or St. Vinnie's or Savers.

 

Good luck!

Thanks for the info.  And sorry for the late reply; I didn't see your post until just now.

 

I checked out Video Game X-Change a couple of weekends ago, nice place.  Turned out the gift card that the subleasers gave me for VGX was worth $60. :O  Very generous of them.

 

On another note, Rossi's Pizza is awesome.  Greatest arcade I've been to since the 90s.

Shopko has PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale (PS3 / cross-buy, comes with a Vita code) on clearance for $16.  Only a couple of bucks cheaper than Amazon, but not a bad deal.

If anyone sees a clearance deal on a PS3 console (any version, any hard-drive size, must be NEW-in-box) in the Milwaukee/Waukesha  area, please let me know.  With so many special versions released, I'm hoping someplace will be trying to get rid of an older model.

 

My original 60GB FAT PS3 finally died, in what I believe is a YLOD issue.

 

Thanks!

I ended up repairing my system via ifixit.

 

Took about an hour or two, but it was fun to go through the process of repair.  Plus, now I have a heat gun!

Shopko in La Crosse has had some great deals on PS Move stuff lately.  It was a few weeks ago (probably still there), so I can't remember the prices, but the camera and controllers were all really low-- I think it was about 75% off.

 

Shopko in Madison has no deals ever.  :-({|=

I used to try and hit them from time to time, but yeah, there is almost nothing good on clearance in Madison right now.

For anyone in/near/visiting Black River Falls, check out their Wal-Mart.

 

It's been a couple of months since I went there, but when I went, they had the greatest clearance rack I'd ever seen in a Wal-Mart.  Picked up Rayman Legends (Vita) for $15, Kingdom Hearts 3D (3DS) for $10, and a Sharpshooter controller for $10.  They had PlayStation Eye cameras for $10 if I remember correctly.  Lots of other games/accessories and miscellaneous electronics, too.

 

This store tickled my CAG bone in ways no other Wal-Mart ever has.

 

And in other news, Madison is still completely devoid of gaming deals.

Does anyone here live near Superior Wisconsin by any chance that can help me out with a request? I have a lead on some Villager Amiibo figures.

Super Smash Bros Wii U is $40 at the west side Madison Shopko.  Not bad at $10 less than Amazon.

^Still a thing as of earlier today.  I finally caved in and picked up a copy, so there should be just one left.

 

May or may not be a price mistake.  It rang up as $59.99, but they said the sign was correct and the scanned price was wrong.

Hi everyone from Wisconsin! I knew we had this but never posted. I live in a north shore suburb and if anyone ever needs tips on retailers in Milwaukee County, I'm your guy. I've been to almost every Gamestop in the area and to every Best Buy. I'm always around the area getting flips and deals, so we may bump into each other if you live in the Greater Milwaukee area :).

October was the last post in here?!  Sad days in the frozen tundra.

Usually I hit up Mega Media Exchange in Brookfield for some good deals, but recently Gamestop has been beating them on prices.

Shopko in reedsburg had sunset overdrive on Xbox one clearance priced for $11.99.

I've heard good things but couldn't quite bite.

Look, there's no easy way to ask this so I'm just gonna do it...

Does anyone want to be gay lovers with me in Fable 3?

Toyrus Northridge (NW Milwaukee) is closing. Most stuff has been picked over. Remaining PS4/360/PS3/WiiU/XBOne are 50% off. What was surprising was all Skylanders/Disney/Lego Dimensions/Amiibo/whatever interactive figures are 70% off. Includes starter packs. I can post photos if needed. The area looks untouched. They're open daily until 7pm.
