My local Target (And maybe yours!) has all their bargainware marked half-off. It says 2 for 1, but when they were ringing up my games, the first one rung up as 7.50 before the second one was scanned. So if you've been waiting for your chance to get Sid Meyer's Pirates!, or Civilization 3 Complete, or Sam and Max Season 1, or any number of popcap casual life-vampires, now's the time to strike. It doesn't get much better than $7.50. :^)

Amazon has At the Movies 360 on sale for 10 dollars.

Gamestop has a bunch of games on sale... I grabbed the Namco Collection (360) and Ghost Squad (wii) for 15 each.

Gamefly has Force Unleashed (used) for 20. Got it for the Wii.

Hey, is that Ghost Squad new or used?  I've been meaning to pick that up if I can find it cheap, but I don't buy used games.

The Game Days stuff  are all new. (Although the charming folks at EB/GS might have gutted them. They did at mine. Grrr...)

STALKER: Clear Sky (OEM in a papersleeve with a key) for $3.01, free shipping This is for the PC and is going very fast.

That is a crazy good deal.  I haven't even finished STALKER proper yet, and my machine doesn't run it very well, but I would be remiss not to pick this up.

Thanks one million for this.

Newegg has a whole bunch of games on sale for $15 or less. I just picked up Dark Sector and The Simpsons game for about $10 each for the Xbox 360.

Cheap ass gamer has a list of what's on sale for what price

Hey! Do you like Xbox Live games but hate Microsoft points? Well, there's a way around that now! Amazon now sells XBL games in their store. Head over to here:

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-Live/b?ie=UTF8&node=979417011

(I haven't tried it, but I imagine that you are emailed a code that can then be inputted in the XBL marketplace to allow the download.)

Amazon's Gold Box stuff today all pertain to video games.  For the next half hour, for example, Rock Band 2 for the Wii is $29.99.

And for the rest of the day, Shaun White Snowboarding is on sale for all systems.

I've been thinking of picking up Killzone 2, and it was on sale. Of course it ended right before I woke up for work. Stupid 3rd shift.

Killzone 2 was only like $7 off.  If your local BB sends out 10% off coupons (mine does) you can buy it there for almost as cheap.

Oh man! I completely forgot that my aunt works at Best Buy! I could just use her employee discount. Oh great now the amount I spend on video games is going to go through the roof.

I feel like I should contribute something to this, but I don't really have any tips. Unless you're looking for a cheap copy of Little Big Planet. I found a seller that has a bunch of copies for $30 (mine was $26). They ship from England, so it may take a while to get it, but the shipping is free! And really, waiting 2 weeks( how long mine took) is worth it to save $30. So if anyone happens to want a link to the seller, either reply or send me a message.
