prices on those would be helpful...for example if PoP is 39.99 and they mark it down to 19.99 after 50% off, there really is no deal

Yeah I definitely think this is very YMMV because of the fact some toys r us's are planning on going out of business. I could be wrong though or maybe it's to early in the sale to jump the gun.

So this is YMMV or everywhere? Must...know...

Cause if it's everywhere, I can stop at TRU on my lunch break and check it out.

Knowing TRU, it's probably YMMV.

At the Rockaway, NJ location I got Guilty Gear XX for $15, BG&E for $10, and I have no idea if this was a glitch or not, but the PS2 Online Pack for $75 :shock: . Was it Discontinued?

By the way, the following games weren't 50% off:
Both Maximo games
Nightshade
Disgaea
Viewtiful Joe
Castlevania: COTM
La Pucelle Tactics

I was almost certain Nightshade would have been 50% off, but it wasn't.

Yep, PS2 w/ Network Adapter and ATV 2. The funny thing is, I planned on getting it today anyway. I didn't think it would be 50% off. It's the only store around here with the Online Bundle still for sale.

Just went on my lunch hour. Grabbed a few of the games that have been posted here for XBox and they rang up at the marked price (i.e. not a deal). Maybe it'll kick in later, but so far, no dice...

Is PoP GCN in this deal, anyone know?

BG&E for GCN was part of the deal, so I assume POP is 50% for all systems as well.

Anyone check Ikaruga? I would think that is part of this deal.

TRU is starting a 50% off discontinued and X status items deal. The promo started ringing up today, but stores will start putting up advertising on August 22nd. And they are doing it by world and the video game section is one of the last sections. So until they send out the list of all the items on sale to the stores, it will be interesting to see what people find. Pretty much all DC, N64, SNES, etc. are part of the sale. Also, there are some GC, XB, PS2, and GBA games. I think almost everything that was part of the BOGO deal last month is part of the new 50% off deal(thus making it the same price as the BOGO deal for those who missed out, except this time you only need to buy 1 item). Anyway, I don't have a list of much, but it is better than most of the other deals as they have some better games as part of this deal. For example, The Lord of the Rings Two Towers for Gamecube is part of it(only $10 for the game, reg. $20). To find out if the item is on sale, it will say "Fall Clearance" when you scan the item at the register or a price checker. I'll have more info soon, but just wanted to give everyone a heads up to this deal. Could end up being like the CC deal for awhile where nothing is really marked, but people just find out from others whats on sale.

I was there last night and I was wondering why certain price tags had a big black "X" marked on them...thanks!

If this is YMMV at all, I'm going to bet that the one I would go to (Times Square) isn't running a deal. That one's not going out of business anytime soon...

Yeah definitely any store that has a high income revenue is probably not on this, but any store not can't meet quotas will probably be going the way of the dodo.

My Toys R Us put red tags on anything that applied to the BOGO deal, and a sign saying "Anything with a red tag is BOGO"

My Toys R Us also has the price check scanners placed in the store. I'm going once I leave the office today.. because if this applies to all of the BOGO games, it will make navigation extremely easy. If not, POP and Silent Hill 3 are well worth the trip.

Well, mine looks like the floor hasn't been mopped since New Years, and the place is a ghost-town. Think I got a shot?

Definately... that's how my Toys R Us is, its just a fluke that they did the red tag thing. If you can catch everybody off guard about this, then you have a pick of games. Remember... employees like snagging deals too... that's why I was cheated out of Jedi Outcast from the CC sale.

For you guys wanting RAD, I remember it being a BOGO game at my TRU. I'd say hunt down the thread with the list of BOGO games, and wreak your havoc.

Correct. I was just there and everything was ringing up full price.

OK, just got back from TRU. I picked up two PS2 games:

Warhammer 40K - $9.99
King of Fighters 00/01 - $14.99

Prince of Persia for GC is $19.95, so it's NOT part of this deal, unless their regular price was $40. The receipt actually shows the $$$ off the regular price. I also treid Legacy of Kain: Defiance for PS2 and that was not part of the deal either.
