Talking Virgin Megastore - Union Square NYC

While the first phases of the Virgin Megastore liquidation were fairly weak (selling stuff at 20-30% off fairly high prices), everything is now going for 70% off the marked price. While selection is pared down, there's still a couple of hundred blu-ray discs available, including many popular titles. For instance, I picked up You Don't Mess with the Zohan for $12 today.

I know this isn't possible for everyone, but I thought NY metro people would be interested.

I didn't look a games because I don't own a console of any type. I know, I'm a weird nerd. They seemed to have a lot, though.

I recall they had a lot of copies of Hancock, but otherwise I didn't take notes. All the DVDs are in the very back of the upper level, and there's a solid row of blu-rays stacked front to back, which is how I got my estimate of 300-500 discs.

Ubertrout... Thanks for the heads-up. I was there around 1pm and it was a madhouse, and it was 80 percent off.

Picked up Hancock (BD), Stargate Continuum (BD), Futurama: Benderís Game (BD), RoboTech: Shadow Chronicles (DVD) and Watchmen Soundtrack (CD) for $37.

BD were pretty picked over. Lots of Hancock and Space Chimp.

Wow, 80% now. I feel like a chump, to quote Bender. Although we're probably talking about $2-3 tops in difference. The store is supposedly closing tomorrow: http://racked.com/archives/2009/06/1...hanging_on.php
