View Full Version : Can't believe these games are on clearance

06-11-2009, 07:01 AM
Ok I work for a retail giant that has a dog for a mascot and a bullseye for a logo. Anyway since I look at the 360 section all the time, I been noticing that we're putting alot of 360 games on clearance. I mean we put Afro Samurai, Mirror's Edge, Left 4 Dead, Banjo & Kazoee: Nutz and Boltz, and others on the clearance rack. Dunno if this is happening at everyones store that they live at but I know its happening at the ones I live near. Don't bother looking at their website since they will be at stanard price since most of the time clearance items are in store only. I'm hopeing Left 4 Dead stays on our shelf and drops more in price because I want to pick that one up. And for those who didn't get the hint at the top, I work at Target.

06-11-2009, 07:05 AM
How much was Left4Dead? I got rid of that game, and if low enough, I'll pick it up again.

Very good on the subtlety of where you work, you had me fooled. ;)

If Afro is reduced enough I may grab it. I was curious on that game and heard some mixed reviews. Gamefly blows and won't send it to me, so I guess I gotta just pay for a copy of it. I'll check the site out shortly. Thanks for the heads up on the clearance section, I'll be up by my target this friday. I owe them hundreds on their damn card too...

...stupid disability and friggin' next door trailer trash taking my payments out of the mailbox and the stupid money order company having a 120 day policy for all money orders that go uncashed after 60 days...fucking me up...

06-11-2009, 07:33 AM
Different store, but I was pleasently surprised that Tom Clancy's End War is for sale at play.com for only 12.99 euro's.

06-11-2009, 07:33 AM
let me guess, target? :O.

Iunno, I don't watch commercials :X

06-11-2009, 10:35 AM
I work in a mall with one of those unnamed stores attached. I frequently check the clearance rack, because Store X does not have the space to stock a wide variety of games go to clearance fast. I picked up Turok for $7 and X-Blades for $14. Still hoping Afro goes down some more, as it's hovering at $29. I saw Banjo on the rack for $10 today, but alas, I already own it. Hoping to see MK vs. DC drop further, too.

the best is buying used games from a friend who works at best buy!

the more threads i see on here the more i realize how much my area sucks. the targets here only carry new games so i've never seen a 360 game at one for less than $50. that's why i don't buy games from them.

oh, except the time i reserved call of duty: world at war there because best buy couldn't for some reason. i went there that tuesday and they told me they had the game but couldn't sell it until wednesday. like what bullshit was that?

06-11-2009, 03:51 PM
DAM!!!!!!!!! if Afro is on sale then i will get it along with Mirrors Edge

06-11-2009, 04:41 PM
I would consider buying Left 4 Dead and Mirrors Edge if they were at 10

06-11-2009, 05:26 PM
Well then that's a shame. I dunno about full price, but Mirror's Edge was definitely worth the $30 I paid for it.

06-11-2009, 05:45 PM
They've on clearance everywhere. L4D is 34 and change. Afro is 30.

The price dorps down either every week or 2.

06-11-2009, 06:03 PM
target is good at putting games on clearance... i've bought many games from there cheap

COD:WAW is 35 bucks if you buy it used at Game Stop, while it's 60 bucks for a new game.

Cant Belive Afro Samurai Is On There ! :eek:

06-11-2009, 07:32 PM
Yeah, I like to regularly check out Target myself. I purchased SoulCalibur IV for $23.99 when it was going around $35 - $40 everywhere else some months back.

06-11-2009, 10:12 PM
Sounds about right. Q3's a month away, so price on some games should go down. Guess I should take a look, it's been a while since I bought a new game. There might be some good bargains out there.

In UK there's no target ;) only a dog with a certain musical device...

But i can't belive L4D is in your clearance it's still 30+ here :(

i picked up from target, yesterday cuz they finallly dropped.

MKvsDC for $14.98
Prince of Persia $14.98

Mirrors Edge/Afro/NFS:U are out of stock here, so i can't bite at the $10/15/20 that those are at.

these are YMMV (for when they get marked down) and do not apply for the B2G1 that target is doing, because they are clearance.

also on markdown, L4D is around 30, so is SR2, Fear2 and a few others....this is kind of well known on some other places, and has been posted about in the GD thread i believe.

06-12-2009, 03:51 AM
Christ, good deals you got there Smurfy. Too bad I don't own MKvDC, otherwise we could thrown down over Live!.

06-12-2009, 04:01 AM
I was at that store where they sell walls and I saw Damnation in the clearance rack, but I'm pretty sure that it was a mistake.

i ain't really good yet, but that game got me over the 50k hump.

I got rid of the game after the first level. Pure dog shit IMO. Rent it first to see for yourself. I wouldn't waste $15 on the game personally. Some real cheap AI and one of the worst in-game camera's I've experienced to date.

COD:WAW is 35 bucks if you buy it used at Game Stop, while it's 60 bucks for a new game.

i paid $35 for a new copy back in december

06-12-2009, 07:36 AM
Where? I've only seen $60.

06-12-2009, 11:39 AM
Yeah, I saw that in the Target near here too, I was like "WOW, too bad I don't want any of those games.." This is in New Jersey. They were all in the glass case, just where the price was there was a clearance sticker over it. The games were about $40.

06-12-2009, 01:23 PM
For anyone near the Novi Michigan area, target here has
Prince of Persia - $14.98
Left for Dead - $34.98
Smackdown vs. Raw - $34.98
Guitar Hero 3 - $7.98
MC vs. DCU - $41.98

Depending what the trade value of Prince of Persia at the Canadian Gamestop is, i may buy 4 copies... :). Generally if the trade value here is $17 or $18 its usually double or more in Canada. w00t!

06-12-2009, 03:07 PM
Where? I've only seen $60.

it was back in december... best buy had it on sale... i rarely buy games when they are released because it will usually be on sale in a few months last time i paid $60 for a game was GTA4 and i barely play it

06-13-2009, 06:56 PM
Damn. For some reason, Game Stop has the used version for $55 again. I'll still buy it next week though.

06-13-2009, 08:26 PM
It seems like many games are put on clearance two to three months after being released, wating for a game to drop in price really becomes something worth thinking about. I'll probably wait out on Tales of Vesperia (which will be released in Europe in 11 days) just to save some money..

06-13-2009, 08:30 PM
Good deals thread: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/showthread.php?t=14631

06-13-2009, 09:27 PM
Yea I'm waiting on those games to drop. Since I work there I picked these games up for dirt cheap prices.

Thrillville: Off the Rails, Battlefield: Bad Company, Viva Pinata, Civilization: Revolution, Tomb Raider Underworld, Last Renment, and I believe one other for $4.95. Mercenaries 2 for $8.95 and Soul Calibur 4 for $14.95. Right now I know Guitar Hero 3 is $7.98 and waiting on Sonic Unleashed, Smackdown vs. Raw 09, Afro Samurai, and Left 4 Dead to drop some more. Man it pays to work in electronics :woop:.

06-15-2009, 04:51 AM
I love target for the amount of games and electronics they put on clearance. I went go pretty often to check but my target doesn't keep a large supply of games so its a lil harder to find good ones on clearance.

Prince of Persia $15 @ Target. Just 1000g'd it.

06-15-2009, 05:07 AM
Where I live most games cost $20 unless they just came out they cost $45. I don't know why in my city the games are so much cheaper the stores don't have to many customers and they have to give good deals to sell.

06-15-2009, 05:29 AM

Theres a KB Toys outlet in my area that sells all kinds of stuff for dirt cheap.

06-15-2009, 11:34 AM
Too bad there is no Target aound here. I have been looking for Mirror's Edge for a while. Hopefully the prce is going down everywhere.

06-15-2009, 04:40 PM
All Target clearances are YMMV. The prices drop in different weeks as its up to each store. This is a good list of clearance games but you should really always keep an eye on Target clearance racks because they are constantly trying to make room for newer games and start clearancing older ones. $15 price point is the ideal point to pick these games up but some Targets drop them quicker and are easier to find games when they are at that point based on how busy your Target is.

06-15-2009, 05:26 PM
I was at Asda today and loads of games have been reduced.

Fuel was only 25, Afro Samaria was 20, Bionic Commando was 17.99 and Godfather 2 was 23 as well as a few other games.

Those haven't really been out to long.

06-16-2009, 01:06 AM
Just got Riddick Dark Athena, Ninja Blade, Afro Samurai, Fear 2, fable II, all for 16-20$ at my local Taget in the clearence section. They have Prince of Persia for 15, and a promotion price all week for Prototype for 37 dollars. Literally just picked all these games up an hour ago. Also got LOTR Conquest for 16 a few days ago.

06-16-2009, 01:19 AM
COD:WAW is 35 bucks if you buy it used at Game Stop, while it's 60 bucks for a new game.

Not around here. MW is still $44 and WaW is still $54 used. Pisses me off :rant:

06-16-2009, 01:23 AM
i often find several good games on clearance at my target

06-16-2009, 03:09 AM
Just went back to work today and we put Ninja Blade and Chronicles of Riddick on clearance. And the funny thing is that Left 4 Dead is in our add this week for $37 but its on our clearance for $34.98.
