MORRISONS: More Video Game Price Drops + 1080p 40" TV

47
Found 2nd Dec 2012
Following on from recent Morrisons price drops, starting tomorrow at 8am, there will be a lot more as well. I work on the Home & Leisure department so this is 100% true, get there early, make phonecalls in advance etc because this will turn into a wild goose chase very quickly (as usual). It's stock clearance, so no every store will have everything you want, if anything it's all going to be somewhat unlikely but try your luck anyway. My store is Salford, Manchester, on Trafford Road so I can only vouch for that one in regards to current stock.

Playstation Vita Wi-Fi - Was £150 / Now £125
Nintendo 3DS - Was £140 / Now £100
Wii Fit Plus w/ Balance Board - Was £70 / Now £35

40" 1080p Techwood TV w/ HD Freeview - Was £319 / Now £269

PS3/Xbox 360 Games:

Final Fantasy XIIII-2 - 98p
Duke Nukem Forever - 98p
Harry Potter & the Deathly Hallows P2 - 98p
Phineas & Ferb 2nd Dimension - 98p
XCOM - £7
Star Wars Kinect - 98p
Saints Row the Third - £5

I can't remember much else as my colleague did the price drops and I had to rush off, but there were plenty more. I'd assume we'll see the left over Nintendo game stock drop next Monday as well.

went there yesterday (expecting their games section to be much bigger than chippenham morrisons) I was sorely disappointed!

Store specific probably & the staff will grab the offers first

went a wild goose chase last monday for the elusive xbox360 14mth gold for £13........... 5 stores and 80+ miles and still nowt.

ill have a go, thanks OP

Yeah, like I said, best off to ring early and check (if there's something you want). My store in Salford has six each of the 3DS's and Wii Fit Plus', along with four of the TVs. But they'll go fast (although staff may wait until Wednesday as we get extra discount for that day).

Staff will be bagging them though for sure.

I don't know why they don't just let us know what the full list of prices are, my stores never have the discounted prices shown, even a week later! Saves us all time and they'll clear the shelves much quicker!!

Why not just pay £25 off eBay it would ave being cheaper.

will hold off voting until I've been in store tomorrow

Thanks OP, Salford it's my local branch so I'll definitely check it out.

Another store specific deal

Why is this hot when no one has actually managed to get any of these yet? Sometimes I really don't understand this site

Do morrisons reductions happen on the systems automatically or were they all manually reduced game by game?

Those console prices couldn't possibly be 'clearance' prices, the stock is current and bound to sell in the run up to Christmas. Given that, and assuming good faith on the part of the OP, I'm wondering if these console prices will be nationwide offers rather than stock clearance in particular stores...

As to the rest, good luck finding it all. I won't be trying, but I'll be straight down there if the Vita price turns out to be standard.

It's definitely clearance for Vita due to extremely poor sales, it's only sold around 2million units while the 3DS has sold over 20million more than that. 3DS might not be clearance, but I can't see them constantly selling 3DS for £100 when most other places sell them new for £130+ and it's not even a 2-year-old machine yet (that started out at £230+) and it's also obviously a good seller.

mine does have ****! still hot

I suppose they could be clearing out the 3DSs to make way for 3DS XLs? Was in this Morrisons earlier and picked up a couple of DS games for a tenner each, might have to make another trip tomorrow morning, but the thought of getting up early isn't very tempting right now

Never EVER in my local site. Not once, never a sniff of a deal. They have a bargain bin full of scrunty games that they must ship in for the bin which are still massively over priced.

Oooooh worth a look I think! Thanks or the heads up!

Thanks for the tip

Haven't spotted any of these deals in my morrisons. Good deal if you can get it.

Thanks for the tip OP

store specific and not even active but peeps going mental hot- they are mental! good luck

These deals do exsist though. I haven't done very well this year in my searches yet but I still have over twenty-odd sealed games from last year that I've yet to play! I'm rather hoping Morrisons do the same as last year and have a 'January Sale' clearout. My local really hate it if you ask them about games 'n' stuff. Luckily I've befriended a techno-guy who (when he's on) tells me if anything good is available. Some of the others though - WOW. They look at you like you've just run over their dog. It's like they REALLY resent the fact you've got a bargain. I wouldn't give a monkey's if I worked there and would actively congratulate customers.

If 'Quidditys_shore' is out there somewhere and maybe reading this - thank you for your input and heads-up posts last time. I appreciated your 'insider' tips!

Aye, surely as another fella said, the cost of petrol + time & energy spent, would negate the saving even if you found it in the 5th store?

Yay another super cheap morrisons deal. Forget camping for the wii u, im camping now outside my morrisons.

I suppose the staff need some joy in their shelf stacking existence.

Been to two Morrisons and bought ds games off of the shelf only to be refunded later because there were just empty boxes

I find myself phoning up the one in Tunbridge Wells a lot and not having any luck. Good luck to those on their wild goose chase! HOT

I totally agree,I have only just started shopping at Morrisons again to get the Christmas saver deal and I was also lucky enough to get one of the 10% discount cards but I soon remembered why I stopped.Horrendous customer service and like you say,when it comes to these games deals,it's like their guarding the crown jewels!! However,I was lucky to get Battlefield 3 limited for 98p a couple of weeks ago and the look on their faces when I used the discount card was priceless lol

My local in Rhyl had a bunch of well priced games yesterday, i picked up Need For Speed The Run for £10, they also had Arkham Asylum for £10, didnt really take note of the ohters.
Never seen a 98p game in there though.

Hope this is nationwide, my nearest store had a few copies of Star Wars Kinect a couple of weeks ago priced up at £30+ would be such a bargain at 98p!

just went up morrisons (yate)
nothing yet and i even asked for the xcom price to be scanned...still coming up as 39.99

damn i want these deals!

This has being going over 2 weeks now, its just when ever stock drops into the store at reduced price from what I can tell.
