By now, most hardcore gamers have heard the news that some Target stores made a mistake and put Infamous 2 on the shelf early. The clearance shelf in fact. Lucky gamers could pick this title up for a mere $29.56, and some bought multiple copies to turn a profit. This is very similar to their earlier screw up with MLB 11: The Show. Could this happen again, perhaps to another huge release like Uncharted 3: Drakes Deception?
Being realistic, the chances are slim. After all, that title won’t release for another 5 months. I would hope that Target would straighten up by then. But, I also would have thought that Target would have learned their lesson after their first mistake. The MLB: The Show 11 seemed like a once in a lifetime steal. Then, along comes Infamous 2.
You can see both threads on CheapAssGamer with eager gamers hunting these games down at Targets here and here.
Were you one of the lucky hunters that found either of these games early and cheap at your local Target? Did you bother looking around for some copies? Share your story below! And who knows, maybe we all will have another shot at this with a different title someday.
