You might want to check Circuit City again

Dec 10 // Dale North    @DaleNorth

We told you early last month that electronics retailer Circuit City was closing over 150 stores. That's big news, as they held up about 10% of the US games market. Damn this economy!

We saw their "everything must go" sales last month, but were not impressed. They discounted their games a measly 5%. What bullsh*t! You could do better than that discount just about anywhere, especially on the internet. That doesn't even take care of tax!

It's worth checking back now, provided you have a closing store near you. I checked in on a local store yesterday, and the prices were much lower than before. Games were 30% off, and they actually had a solid selection. New games were still on the racks, too. Both of Square Enix's recent RPG duds may not be worth $60, but how about $40-something? Fallout 3 was there, as were the limited editions of the new GTA and Saints Row 2. All cheap.

Game accessories were also 30% off. I didn't really want a PSEye, but got one for a good price. They had no controllers left, but they did have just about everything else. Strategy guides and the like were a whopping 70% off. Found several nice ones for only dollars.

If you're a PC gamer, titles were 40% off and the selection was very solid. PC software was 50% off, too. And if you're still gaming on stereo television speakers, you're missing out. Circuit City had some insane discounts on receivers and speakers.
