According to a staffer at my local KB Toys, all games for XB, GC, and PS2 will be 30% off, starting this Monday, Oct. 2. He claims they will only carry GBA and DS games in the future, so discounts may improve as this "final clearance" moves on.

YMMV, but I figured it was worth mentioning.

Think this might be online too, or just B&M?

I didn't know KB still carried those games. The only thing I've seen is some crappy GBA, maybe PS2 games that were $20 or under. Nothing worth actually getting, though...

Maybe you have a SUPER KB or something...

The KB in the Manhattan Mall carries games, so if I can remember, I'll try to stop by after work Monday to check it out.

I wasn't aware KB Toys still carried games. A shame none down here still do.

Every KB in my area either went out of business or does not carry games anymore.

It's a shame because I thought both their deals last year (the $1,$5,$10 game clearance and then the buy 1 get 1 free on all games) were deals of the year for me but it doesn't look like that will ever happen again.

The one in the Boulevard Mall already got rid of all the console games. I checked about 2 weeks ago. Kinda sad. I remember when I was a kid KB was the place where I would buy all of my games.

yep, nothing like finding Tactics Ogre, Vagrant Story (non-gh), Bushido Blade 2 and various other rarities sealed;) and as display copies, after that my kbs were basically wiped of anything good...

one thing i noticed last time i was there was a few Metroid Prime Gamecube bundles (shiny box) but they were still regular price

My KB hasn't had any console games since the last big clearance.

It's kind of a shame, they made nice trade-in fodder for EB's bonus credit deals.

Mine still has games, not sure what but they do have the current gen out there. Are these going to be coming off the shelfs at super cheap prices anytime soon, since you mentioned they are only going to carry GBA/DS?

The only KB still here has games lined up in a case behind the counter. They are sideways, so if you're lucky you can read the titles on the side... and there are no prices. It's really bad.

Yeah, me 2! Between that and Woolworth's/Toys R Us/Target....I practically grew up in there playing NES kiosks and occasionally getting a game when my grade warranted it or saved enough money up from odd jobs.:bouncy:

It's a sad state of affairs now at KB.:cry:

Yeah, most KBs around here cleared out all their console games over the last 2 years. I was lucky enough to get Legend of Mana and FF Tactics for under 15 bucks a piece.

So is this YMMV? Or nation wide? I might go to my KBToys in the mall to check, but I'd like to know before I went.
