WalMart typically quickly dumps anything with a low "sell through" rate. If it isn't selling, it goes in the clearance bin and something else is given shelf space.

I don't know that I've ever seen WalMart drastically cut prices on something that's still selling well, but who knows.

Please let me know when the GHWT Game Only drops to around $20. I love my Ions and my RB2 strat so I don't have a use for the full bundle, but there a couple of songs on that setlist I'd like to try murdering on the mic.

^lol. k, i'll keep tabs on the game only.
i own guitar hero 3. i dont own either rock band nor GH: world tour. i see it as a party game. at the 2 prices on the past page its a steal for me. i know nothing about the RB vs. GH contests or each ones issues or mis-steps and to be honest i dont care. sorry to be so blunt. but one thing we can both accomplish right now is to simply agree that any game at this lower price than what it was is a great deal.
Agree?

who knows maybe next week walmart will start selling rock band 2 at this price? heck, i may even buy it too as i'm mysteriously attracted to the idea of belting out some "Rio" by Duran Duran.

"Hungry Like the Wolf" followed up by "Psycho Killer" is the way to go.

Keep up the great deal posting. I was just trying to point out some of WalMarts typical pricing practices, not fan the flames of the music game wars. I remember when a PC game version of Disc Golf finally came out years ago, and WalMart stocked it. It was in the $5 bin within 2 weeks, meaning that pretty much zero copies sold and there was no hope of another version ever coming out again.

I don't know why you think my comment had anything to do with you posting a deal about GH.

You asked "wtf is happening?" that's what I was replying to.

There's no flame. I quoted that last one because it looks like the same reaction.

It was just supposed to be a funny comment, I'm not, and I'm sure Lord Flatus too, against posting a deal on any game. I could have said something about half the crappy games in this thread already.

Formulanerd, thats some list. There are many gems in that list, and the prices are smoking good. I mead VF5 scored almost 90% on metacritic, and is an absolute steal at that price (its cheaper than most arcade games). I need to make a Target run (or 2) to try and find them.

yea, target deals around me are hit and miss... most of these prices are 50-75% off or more, but some stores will sell out at just 25% off etc.

good luck there are usually endcaps (sometimes not really even near the games, near tools/lighting/headphones, etc) with the clearanced items.

Those target deals are great. I have to go try to get Mirror's Edge...I loved the demo but wanted the price to drop.

And Far Cry 2 for $10?!! Yeah, I'll try it out for that price.

yes, many targets had a bunch of stock and no floor/shelf space to put it.... target always does that and clearances it out to get rid of it.

i got one of these for $12, which is like 90% off because they had quite a few and nowhere to put them.

That's actually an insane deal if that's the case...I was happy getting it for $90 at Toys R Us during the misprint, but for $35 I might pick up another one just for another guitar and spare drumset.

EDIT: Oh wait....just realized it's not Rock Band 2. Nevermind...not interested.

I have RB for ps3, but would love RB for 360 so I can justify getting the stage kit, too

Can't really pay more than $35 though.

I might have to swing by Target on the way home just to see if they have Far Cry 2, Mirror's Edge, or (maybe) GH:Aerosmith

Can you use the RB2 strat on GH: Aerosmith? I picked up GH3 for $10 a couple weeks ago only to find that I had to use the Les Paul....which I have as a spare guitar for guests, but that I hate using (needless to say GH3 hasn't gotten a lot of play).
