Sure, it sucks when a series you love goes on hiatus, but with over-saturation and brand fallout comes a silver lining: excellent clearance sales on the remaining merchandise. That’s just what’s happening at a couple of nationwide retailers at this very moment.
The first clearance sale, which is a part of a larger video game clearance, is found at Sears stores across the country. In addition to $20 Silver Playstation 2 Slims, $5 Resistance 2’s, and $3 DS games, you can find guitar bundles of Guitar Hero 5 for the Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Nintendo Wii for $15.
If you’re in the market for a new guitar, we cannot recommend the Guitar Hero 5 guitar enough. In my opinion, it is the best guitar ever released on current generation consoles. While at Sears, keep your eyes open for DJ Hero bundles in the clearance section. While rare, remaining DJ Hero bundles should be hovering between $15 and $25, depending on availability.
UPDATE: Toys ‘R’ Us has canceled all online orders regarding this deal and our commenters and Twitter followers have reported that managers and cashiers are calling it a “hoax.” Oddly enough, the coupon code worked online last night on ToysRUs.com, so we’re not sure how exactly a “hoax coupon” ends up working on the official website. As of now, however, it appears as though the Toys ‘R’ Us deal listed below is dead.
UPDATE 2: A representative from Guitar Hero called eight Toys ‘R’ Us locations and has found that the coupon may be showing up as valid now. If you are in the area of a Toys ‘R’ Us, it is definitely worth a shot! The deal is also said to be valid on Tony Hawk Ride/Shred bundles. Good luck!
If that doesn’t quite strike your fancy, or you don’t have a Sears around you, Toys ‘R’ Us is also having a sale that allows you to pick up any Guitar Hero or DJ Hero bundle (minus the “super” or “full-band” bundles) for only $15 each! If you want to take advantage of this deal in person, simply display the below barcode to the cashier. If you’d like to rock this deal online, just enter code #946607 at checkout. You may want to hurry on this deal, as it sounds as though some people over at CheapAssGamer.com have heard rumors of a memo going out to managers to pull this deal.
Happy hunting and let us know what deals you were able to snag up!
