Do they have pictures of some of the 8.96 games in the ad? That way I can maybe PM elsewhere.


From the way speedy worded it, the ad specifically states that it's a clearance. Nobody pricematches clearance prices that I'm aware of.

Thanks OP!

nothing for me this week, but it is nice to see BFME II for 360 is coming out on time. as for the clearance, I am also curious to see what it will be like on that Sunday. my local CC is almost picked clean of all their clearance games.

Despite the fact myself and Ender picked through out CC in Mobile, there are still lots and lots of games left .. but it is funny how history repeats itself over and over with them, which is fine with me... Ill get what I want :)... the "magic" of that 5 dollar sale may never be repeated, I had bought random crappy 5 dollar games before... but with thiat sale, they were everywhere, and some REALLY good games too (Disgaea, MVC, etc.)


This is probably a good thing; at $5, people buy _everything_. At $9, most of us actually think if they're interested in the game at all, and if they'll ever get around to playing it.

So none of you have CC's that pulled games? I know one of the ones near me pulled everything pretty early - at least with respect to the DS, GBA, and Xbox games. Another was pulling stuff today so they probably had less left over. But still, it should be better than 2004 when I went to that same first CC, flier from the paper in hand (and no knowledge of CAG) and couldn't find anything but some 2002 Sports games and a couple of crappy GBA games (though those ended up netting me decent GR credit once I discovered the wonders of trade-ins).

In fact, the manager at this particular store remembered the "fiasco" of 2004 and that's why she started pulling things. She was pissed some Circuit City insider leaked the super-duper top secret clearance list :roll:. So, DemoMan, I would avoid Portland, OR if I were you - she'll have your head :D.

Basically, though, anyone who is reporting back that hoarders or FatWalleters "cleaned out everything" are most likely simply seeing a store that pulled stuff back for the 2nd of July. I'm basing this on the fact that the one no so nearby store that hasn't pulled anything back still has a pretty good stock (granted nothing great, but lots of middle-range stuff).

Never thought of that! Speedy?


Sorry folks.... These games are NOT listed in the ad.

The Intel to go to is Demolition Man's posting here at CAG.

Can you tell if the PDZ the limited edition or regular?


You'll need to specify what PDZ is please. Sounds like a game.

From what's pictured, I'd say Perfect Dark:Zero is the regular version.

I bit on GTA already so I'll either take it back today and then buy it at BB with a price match for that extra 10% off, or I'll just take the game and my reciept to CC to get the difference. They still do that right where if you come with the game & reciept & ad showing the lower price, they just hand you the difference?

That seems to imply that the employees at your store actually care and/or know about such things. The employees at my store are like "Here you go, and it's cheap, wow!"

Anyone know if that 6 megapixel Digital Camera is any good? Seems pretty cheap.

When in doubt google it and read customer reviews!

I usually pick things out like this because I've read something good about them and when It becomes a great pricepoint, I make a point to notify people.

From what I remember it's a starter camera.


Other camera values that I pointed out is the Nikon 5.1 Megapixel ($169.99) and the Fuji FinePic 4.1 Megapixel ($129.99) which I listed in my Target thread for this timeframe.

Sims 2 Family Fun Stuff for $7.99, finally, because that's what it's worth.

I'll pick it up for my gf.

Worth it because there the original SiN game in there too. I don't know though...it's a hot price but part of me just wants to wait for a compilation to come out down the road.

Although I did bite on HL2 ep1...but I guess thats Half Life heh.

Yeah I got the exact same reaction : "Hey, looks like these are on sale!", and "You're a smart shopper!". LOL. Yes. Yes I am.

Looks like it's time to pick up SiN Ep 1 & Sims 2 Family Fun Stuff and do the 110% PM this coming weekend. $6.79 for each after PM is such a nice thing. :D

GTA: LCS for PS2 for $12.29 after PM is also a nice thing.

Ghost Recon: Advanced Warfighter >>>> PS2 / XBOX >>>> $29.99!

GRAW is coming to PS2 and XBox? Huh, I wasn't aware of that.

I'll probably just wait for the 360 version at the same price, by the time I get a 360.

BTW, thanks speedy.

I don't think you understand what I'm saying, I want to know (in the ad it's self) if it says something like "big clearence!" with just a generic picture of various game on sale. Or is like "big clearence!" check store for details..
