Sure as much as they were when I was there on Saturday evening. Also I have heard from someone I mentioned it to elsewhere that the liquidation company may be allowing individual site/area supervisors to set the amount of the discount in proportion to the traffic to the store, or if said store is the 'key' one that'll be the last as others shut and move crap there. My store is the KEY store as there are 2 other crap ones in town and one just over the river in Indiana. For me systems are 20%, games 30%, and some accessories are 30% others 40%.

Also I am curious why on an overpriced $60 game $48 isn't cheap? If the game is brand new and retails for $60, the douchebags at Gamestop will sell it used for $55. Here you can get a non-used game for another $7 under that. Seems like a deal in that perspective on newer(and/or still) full price titles.

I'm unfamiliar with your Caldors, but I know the company who is doing CC is the same as CompUSA. They initially jack all prices up to the original MSRP when stuff first debuted and then pull 10% off (making most stuff more expensive than normal elsewhere.) At most they'll raise things to 25-50% off depending what it is and after that they close up. They'll then send back stuff they can and profit despite the restocking fee. They're in it for money, it's not like a company dies and sells their own crap, these are low ball scum that feed on the death other companies to make cash.

To me I got a deal as the PS3 isn't going to be coming down to the $320 ($80 off) I paid for it for a good long stretch still and likely by then it wouldn't be worth it as new systems would be showing up another 1-2years out. Even now Sony is almost at a 1:1 ratio on price of system to ship (a little over $400) vs sales price ($400.) And I know I got MOH Airborne and Assassins Creed for $20.99 vs $29.99 on those saving $9/pc. And the component cable I picked up was $17.50 normally it's like $25 saving $7.50.
