    Default Clearance Sale at KB Toys!

    KB Toys is blowing out a lot of games for $1, $5, and $10. They are also having a BOGO at 50% off on orange tagged games. These two sales groups seem to be somewhat intermixed. I picked up the following from 2 local KBs tonight:

    Except for Mario Party 5, Paper Mario, and Desert Storm II (which were $10 each), everything here was $5 (even the GH Desert Conflict/ Top Gun double pack!). Some of these are orange tag games, as I was given $2.50 at each store. The Xbox Batman Sin Tzu with Batman Figure was a nice surprise, along with some games that my girls will get for Christmas.

    Along with a ton of junk, there were some other nice titles I left behind like GC Warioware, PS2 GT4, Xbox Soul Caliber II, among others. There are lists of games people have picked up over on CheapAssGamer, but it seems that the stores are just putting out whatever is in their back rooms. People are reporting finding Game.com titles, sealed PSX longbox games, and $1 sealed N64 games.

    Just wanted to give DP a heads up on a nice deal...good hunting!

    My bro was nice enough to call me and tell me he picked up 3 new 'cube games for my collection. He bought me StarFox Assault for $10, Bloodrayne and Black & Bruised for $5 each. With today's purchase of DDR Mario Mix, this puts me upto 95 Gamecube games. Only a few hundred to go. 8*)

    Wish we still had some around here. I'd appreciate it if anyone could pickup a $10 copy of Paper Mario for me

    I have a feeling our KB won't have anything but sports titles. :/ I'm feeling a bit pessimistic today, however.

    are they priced on the item or you you have to check all the prices at the counter ?

    Blech. The closest KB is over an hour away, and with gas these days, driving over there would offset any savings I'd get.

    Poopie.

    I hit the West Caldwell one after work last night and found a handful of good games. It was definately not cleaned out.

    I am going to call the Secaucus store and if they say that they have some games left I will hit it at lunch

    Same here, which is a shame...tried checking the KB Outlet stores while on business trips, but they told me they've NEVER carried video games

    I can confirm the randomness of some of the items available. At my local KB they had sealed Genesis, SNES, N64, Game.com games (mostly sports titles), as well as a bunch of disc only games.

    I picked up:

    Conflict Desert Storm/Top Gun (PS2) - 5.00
    Panzer Dragoon Orta (Xbox) - 2.50
    Silent Hill 2 (PS2 disc only) - 5.00
    MOH - Rising Sun (PS2) - 5.00

    They also had a bunch of GBA games for $5.00

    The guy behind the counter told me that come January, KayBee is getting out of the videogame business, so there may be more good deals to come!

    There's no shock in that statement. Honestly, I don't know why KB stayed in the VG business so long. The torch has long been passed to stored like EB, FCL/GameStop, and Game Crazy. Plus with the resurgance of indy game shops, it's no suprise KB isn't selling games.

    For anyone who hasn't been to a KB in a while or who doesn't even have one in their area anymore - Their video game section is comprised of games they get far too many copies of and don't sell enough of. Since the games are usually behind the counter, it normally makes it a bit hard to see them, but since they're usually sitting on a ton of games, they put them sideways to get them all to fit, making it about impossible to see what they have, and to see what they're priced at (a lot of times, $5 higher than normal retail).

    I enjoy shopping at KB for toys, and will continue to do so, but their dropping out of the video game market is long overdue, IMO.

    Yeah, I am going tomorrow and would like to know as well, do we have to check the prices at the counter, or are the games already marked?

    *lol* Have you looked at the member map in Off Topic lately? I think that's where half the DP members are located!
