Not sure if it's all stores but Upper Hutt Warehouse has a 4 day deal of 50% of clearance gaming. Appears to end on the 18th.

Got Xbox one Sniper Elite 3 for $15, Lego Movie Game $30, Alien Isolation $15, Zombie Trilogy $30, Disney Infinity 2 and a few others. Clearance Skylanders trap team figures were also half price.

Anyway might pay to have a look while in store.

It's all stores, plus the deals are on the website. Picked up Far Cry 4 on PC for under $15

Grabbed Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel!, I haven't bought a physical game in years! $15 seemed a pretty good deal when its still $29.99 USD on Humble Store on sale.

Damn I'm too late. Added zombie army to my cart but wanted to play it this weekend so didn't check out.
Went to a warehouse today and none in stock. None online either 😢

Mine arrived today - in separate deliveries, one from Tauranga one from Auckland.

Both games missing manuals/cards from inside case. No big deal but I normally like to sell on games once I am finished so would like these to be included - have emailed them.

Yeah TWH are terrible for that happening. I don't like how ordering off them gets store stock and not sealed items.

Skipped it this time around as I have so many unplayed clearance games already

If that is the case I am going to kick up a stink until they get them for me to make sure they improve their processes.

Got the following response - 

 

Hi Kane,

 

 

 

Thank you for your email.

 

 

 

I have contacted our Gaming Manager and he has advised that no manuals are normally found on the disc now days within the Options Menu.

 

 

 

A lot of Gaming titles no longer ship with manuals.

 

 

 

We apologise  for any inconvenience and if you require any further information you can contact us on 0800 733 665.

 

 

 

Kind regards

 

Annie


I have responded

Hi Annie,

 

 

 

Sorry he is incorrect, I called into one of your branches today and took the attached photo of the manual in the Don Bradman Cricket game so that you know what you are looking for.

 

 

 

They didnt have Call Of Duty Ghosts in stock but that paperwork should be around as well.

 

 

 

Please provide the manuals for me as soon as you can.

 

 

 

regards

There are also usually the codes for DLC which are missing on clearance games at TWH. Really the retail disc sales system of taking stuff out of the case and leaving that on a rack for people to look at is absurd to still have around.

I think this deal may be back on for labour weekend.

Picked up a clearance singstar for the kids at $30 which scanned at $15

I find it always pays to take something like that to the scan machine if in store. They're often mislabelled or have further reductions that aren't labelled or necessarily that well advertised.

I find those are good to find what items you're going to have to argue at the checkout about.
