Default Target clearancing recent titles....

At my local Target a few of the more recent games went on clearance, which if you know anything about Target it means that if some of these games hang around for a few weeks you'll be able to get them at very cheap prices.

My "local" prices (your prices will be the same or different depending on your markdown dates, inventory levels, etc. for your Target. They are always different for each store):

Xbox 360...

Pure 41.98
Civilization Revolution 41.98
Golden Axe : Beast Rider 41.98 (didn't this JUST come out?!?)

PS3

Pure 29.98
Golden Axe : Beast Rider 41.98

There are a few more that I can't remember offhand, I'll update this list the next time I can check.

My guess is they are going store by store and removing under performing titles to make room for the many titles coming out this busy holiday sale season.

Target clearance is always a store by store basis.

Yep. Certain stores have amazing clearance. The one by me has a great clearance selection most of the time.

Recently I've see/bought:

Skate clearance for $15 (360)

Condemmed 2 for $10 (360)

Kane & Lynch for $10 (360/PS3)

Unreal Tournament 2 for $20 (PS3)

Really? I might have to pick up UT3 if I can find it for $20.

The last time I was there, they had a ton of copies too.

And they was $20 at that time. They might even be lower by now.

I refused to pick up Lego Star Wars 2 on 360 for $15 clearance, and waited a week and it was $5.

Reminds me, Lego Indiana Jones dropped to 34.98, although I think this one is being marked out because it is one of the 2 games included in the holiday bundles for the 360 this year.

Dang. Sadly I haven't played it yet. I liked the 1st one, and for $10 I knew I would play it eventually.

There are no Targets in Canada... I swear if I had the money I'd buy a license to the Franchise and open a shop up! They sound like they got all the deals!

Yea Targets are very hit or miss with their clearance. Even if 1 store has an item on clearance, 1 may have it on clearance for $30 and another across town may have the same game on clearance for $14

It's really just luck what you come across, as I'm too lazy to "hunt" across all the targets in my city lol. Plus more often then not the clearance tags won't even be correct, so it might be tagged at $30 but it'd ring up $14, but what do you do? Ask an associate to take it outta the glass, scan it, and if it comes up the same price as advertised, then be like, "oh nevermind"
