I don't think it would say it on the online stock site since it is on the clearance shelf.
I found a clearanced copy of Demon Souls that was in the regular case but was stickered with a clearance sticker.

Battlefield Bad Company 2 preorder at Amazon comes with a $20 coupon for the next game purchase.  Not a bad deal - still can't decide if I am going to get it or not  :-\. Anyway, for anyone interested, here is the link.

I always do a install for my 360 games to make sure they work. I've ordered about a dozen games from them. Only problem I had was a copy of Mortal Kombat vs. DC coming in a Prince of Persia case.

 Ghostbusters $14.40
 Bionic Commando $9.90
 Band Hero $19.90
 Katamari Forever $19.90
 AC/DC Live: Rock Band Track Pack $9.90

Ghostbusters and Bionic Commando sound appealing at that price.

Amazon (and I think Walmart) are doing the $20 credit with a purchase of Halo Reach like they did with MW2.

It's beta is in May and it's release date is sometime this Fall.  It currently costs about $50 bucks to get into the beta but you do get a free copy of ODST.

Amazon also has Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker with $10 credit

seems like Walmart has more deals that Amazon hasn't matched yet, like $10 for Crackdown 2 and a few others.

Also, on April 1 from 12:00 pm ET/9am PT through April 5 at 12:00 pm ET/9am PT, Xbox LIVE Silver members can enjoy features that are reserved exclusively for Xbox LIVE Gold members – including Netflix, Facebook, Twitter, Last.fm and premier multiplayer features.

SALE: Between April 1st and April 7th, there will be Ten Arcade Games on sale (like Super Street Fighter II HD, South Park LET'S GO TOWER DEFENSE PLAY and Defense Grid: The Awakening) I’ll post the complete list of titles and sale prices as soon as get my hands on it.

Just FYI, you can get Splinter Cell: Conviction for $46.99 at Amazon.com when you type in SPLINTER for a promotional code at the checkout. It has same day delivery too, for five dollars and change. Cheaper than going to GameStop!

I'm going to cancel my pre-order there.

Toys R Us has a buy one, get 2nd 50% deal.  Pretty good deal but my local TRU has a pretty lousy selection.  It's basically just new games and platinum hits.  They don't even have stuff like Naruto PS3 which is odd for a place that caters to kids.  I guess it's good if you were waiting to pick up something like FF13 and GOW3.
