Man, I wish I could see Kane and Lynch at that price for PS3 here.  My Target never ever has clearance games.  Suck.

Bioshock (360) - $20
MX vs ATV Untamed (360) - $25
Bully (Wii) - $20

My Target had Bioshock for $19.98 (one copy), but I didn't want it cuz I have already had it, beat it, and swapped it off.  Waiting for the PS3 version now with extra content.  And they have 6 copies of Kane, but not at $20.  They are all $28.  WTF?  I asked the manager and he gives me some song and dance about quantities in stock determine price blah blah blah. 

Don't know why I ever bother to check there as they have never, and I mean NEVER had a single good deal I would take advantage of.

the one near me likes to play a little game called "hide and seek" with theirs.  one week it's near dvd's, the next week it's in toys. last week they actually moved the red tagged clearance games onto the pc and video game shelves.   icon_confused

My Target had one PC game in stock at the clearance section... Supreme Commander Gold for $7.48 so I got that.  They still had the expansion (which is included in the gold edition) on the shelf for $20, which was also a recent markdown. biggrin

I go to the Target on Elston, and it is the busiest Target in the country, apparently. The one on Addison, IMHO, is a lot better. It's got two floors, too!

Is the one on Elston the one that's close to Micro Center?  My wife and I dubbed it the BC (Birth Control) Target.

Hahaha, that's a good way to describe it.
Yeah, that's the one, and it's the busiest and most profitable Target in the country.

I saw Unreal Tournament 3 for PS3 at $26.99, which is odd because the PC version is $19.99.
They also had some crappy kids games for PC.

FYI, both lost odyssey and the club just had a price drop on both new and used copies at gamestop.  i believe lost odyssey is at 35 and 39, while the club is around 14.99 and 19.99.

Keep an eye on for the Madden 09 CE on 360.  If you can find it for $40, I'll pay you for it.

I saw that GRID for the 360 has dropped down to $30.  There is also a batch of DLC that is due out soon (and more to come in a couple months) so I ended up jumping on it. 

Lost Odyssey also at $30. 

It looks like they are also starting to clearance out a bunch of PC games, though most of them are casual-type so far.

GRiD dropped to $15 at my Target, so my wife picked it up for me today.  Woot!  (It was $30 on Sunday.)

I should have had her check to see if Lost Odyssey was $15 as well.   mad

I'll see what I can do, but I probably won't be able to make it back over there until Friday - tons of meetings on Thursdays. Also, I've never really done the whole PayPal thing so we may have to work something out by PM.

*UPDATE* When back at lunch today and all of the GRiD and Lost Odessey copies were gone. Sorry guys.
