My first guess is that this is a price mistake or they had a boatload of RB SE's sitting around and meant for it to be that, as they list the PS3 and 360 versions of RB2 SE for that price with a $25 GC. Says it starts 12/14 and ends 12/20.

I'll see if I can get my scanner hooked up...

Please bare with me folks, this is my first post so I'm sure you guys probably don't think I'm much of a credible source, but I seen the Toys'R'Us ad for 12/14 - 12/20 and about the 7th page in on the bottom right hand corner, it has the complete Rock Band 2 bundle for Xbox 360 or PS3 for $109.99. And next to it it says you get a free $25 gift card with the purchase of the bundle. I would assume this deal is for the US only. Hope this helps!! :)

*edit* A picture of the deal can now be found in the other thread found here: http://www.cheapassg...t=207393&page=2 *edit*

Hell if it is and TRU doesn't honor the price then if its in the weekly ad (which I can't check since someone stole them from my work already) then I will be PMing somewhere BB or Wal-Mart

i hope this is true because i was at TRU a few days ago and saw a boatload of RB2 SE near the RZone(they were placed way on the top where the overtstock things usually go, they had 2 rows/aisle worth of it!)

So maybe this deal is true to help push all those overstock items out(which im glad to help them out). :applause:

I know you can use that one cheap Electronic Drum Sets for RockBand, but can you use Yamaha's or Rolands with Rockband with a UX16 or any other Midi to USB like Drummania?

This is true. I receive Sunday ads on Saturday and just saw it.

I also have a 20% coupon I received in the mail, so that should make the deal really sweet. Stores open at 7 am, that's what the ad says.

I'm in San Jose, CA btw.

I saw the ad too. I can't believe that price.

I think it's not a mistake since in the ad they list item number in the website 135020, for the xbox 360, and that's RB2.

So wake up early and if you don't have any GC or coupon for TRUS be ready to pricematch at CC or BB.

Im willing to get on this deal even though I have Rock Band, because I can turn this around and make it a Christmas Present. I don't suppose anyone can show me the coupon for 20% off, or if it will even work for me.

Wow, I'll be picking that up for sure if that is the case. It seems too good to be true though. Maybe it is a misprint and it was supposed to be the normal $189 with the gift card or it was simply Rock Band 1.

Please do! I just lost my ebay bid, so this is my only hope of snagging this on the cheap. Seeing confirmation of the cheapness will make my day!

EDIT: Just got off the phone with my local TRU and this deal is real! $109.99 is the price I was quoted!

This seems too good to be true but I hope it is! I've been wanting RB2 ever since I played RB1 for the first time not long ago and have been craving it, but not at the price. It seems like the ultimate party game.
