#14139113 Walmart YMMV In Store Clearance Thread I (READ THE FAQs)

Posted by element676 on 06 March 2019 - 06:09 AM

Went to a few Walmart’s and all I could find was SMT IV: Apocalypse for $15.

Why is going to Walmart always such a miserable experience? I really hate going to Walmart, they are just the worse.

It would be nice if SE would reprint 2.8. I already own KH 1.5 + 2.5 Remix on PS4. I hate to have to spend $40 just to get 2.8, when I already own the other disc.

For people that don’t buy everything under existence, it’s an incredible value. Plenty of games to love on the service.

Same with backwards compatibility. Tons of people love to play games that they never got to play on 360. Or play their favorites again.

Both of these programs are extremely popular and would be if Sony had them as well. But whatever, your point may be valid for you but not for most other people.

I love my PS4 for exclusives but love the way MS has done so much else that is pro-consumer. Even crossplay is a bigger priority and should be for Sony as well but it’s not. Sony has gotten arrogant. Just because you have the lead doesn’t mean gamers stop caring about certain features.


Strange how before this gen started, most people felt the complete opposite. Microsoft started the gen trying to force us into an all-digital and not being able to trade discs , DRM etc

Sony has once again grown fat and arrogant, just as they did right after the success of the PS2.

Last time I dealt with them was for a refund on a game I'd never even played or installed. The customer service guy acted like I was trying to steal money out of his wallet.


I have actually gotten two refunds from Sony. But it was still a pain in the ass. I never used their chat though,I just called their 1-800 number and spoke to a customer service rep over the phone.

They really need to get with the times about refunds though. Steam and Microsoft offer digital refunds. This greedy corporate penny pinching about digital refunds is very anti-consumer.

I still cannot understand why all of the previous copies of KH 1.5 + 2.5 Remix, KH 2.8, and Story So Far were all bought up everywhere all of a sudden.

Could this be eBay resellers going out of their way to purchase every copy in hopes of spiking up the resale value?

Seems like about 200 games were added to the Holiday Sale page, including the Flash Sale games for some reason, so I'll have a list of that stuff in a bit.


I think at this point, Sony should be paying you.

Yooka-Laylee worth $10 bones, what say you and by you I mean those who actually played it?


You are better off spending an extra $7.99 and getting A Hat in Time. That game is actually good.

Pricing is up to the publisher. Star Ocean 3 is the cheapest it's been. Get it. Ape Escape 2 and Rogue Galaxy have been a little under $4 with plus, and the Dark Clouds have been $4.50 with plus. As someone else said, those go on sale a lot.

I'd buy Star Ocean and wait on the others.

 

I see you like good music. I have been a fan of Propagandhi since " How to clean everything".

I miss how Amazon use to organize things for BF, which made it easy to find the deals. But since they have already destroyed the competition, i guess they do not give a shit anymore.

Got Final Fantasy XV, LEGO Marvel 2, and Skyrim for PS4. I had a $2 Target gift card so that covered the taxes. Only paying the $45. Already got Monster Hunter and Horizon Zero Dawn on PSN with the $40 for $30 Walmart gift card deal. I think 5 games for myself is more than enough this year, especially with the No Man's Sky update tomorrow that once again changes the game. I was planning on waiting at my Target, but it's still too smoky, and rainy in my area of California, so it's just not worth it this year. Got my Brother the Metal Gear Solid V collection for PS4 for $18 with a special Google pay coupon from some slightly Newegg-ish PC store, and my mom the Michelle Obama book. So, all my shopping is done. I probably would have got more for them, and myself, but my work check didn't show up when it was supposed to.

 

Be careful out there man. I heard on NPR yesterday, how they are recommending everyone wear an N95 at all times.

so tired of this response-- really saying you don't want to have to leave your family to buy material possessions on thanksgiving. I use to work retail and loved working on holidays. you get 1 and half to double time pay. thanksgiving can be any day-- have it on Saturday


Wrong. I don’t go out shopping on Thanksgiving or BF. I do my shopping online. The only reason I said what I did is because I am thinking about others having to work on a day that stores use to close on. Great you use to love working that day, but I am sure there are many, who do not.

Quit your job in retail if you don't want to work during the Holidays. Problem solved.


I don’t work in retail.

Remember when Gamestop was the longest hold out of not opening until actual Black Friday and not Thanksgiving day itself? Now they're opening at 3 friggin PM Thanksgiving.


Not a fan of this opening up on Thanksgiving, therefor forcing employees to work on a day that they should be spending with their families.

I do not see Ni No Kuni going any lower than $19.99 on BF and with GCU, I can get it for $15.99.
