ymmv, but I found some great videogame deals at Sears today. Until recently, my Sears seemed to believe that old games in dusty cases at exorbitant prices was the best way to move merchandise. I'd heard that you could find the PSOne + LCD combo for $29.97 (they didn't carry it at mine), but I did find a v.1 Live kit for $24.97 (my subscription expires in 2 days). I also picked up Grabbed by the Ghoulies for $9.97. Other games I can remember were Jedi Academy for $24.97, Haven was $4.97 (it's my duty to flog this game), the Xbox Hi-Def A/V Pack was $6.97, Panzer Dragoon Orta was $14.97.

The videogame section of Sears is usually somewhat near the electronics, but shunted to the side like a red-headed bastard stepchild. They only stock Sony and Microsoft games and hardware. In addition to the above deals, you'll see inexplicable pricing like $49.99 for Kingdom Hearts (must be why they still have original packaging copies), though I imagine you can get them to price match anything. I've been reading rumors that Sears may dump videogames altogether, so prices may plummet soon, as in the KB Toys blow-out. The cheap PSOne bundle is very ymmv (for some reason my brain always interprets that as "your methods may vary"), but the game pricing seems to be nationwide.
