So Micro Center's ad has the Witcher 2 for PC listed at $29.99 but it also states that it's available for 360. So I took the ad to Wal-mart to see if they would price match it cause it clearly doesn't show any price for the 360 version on Micro Center's ad.

To my luck (and after 2 managers approvals and trying to call Micro Center) they gave me Witcher 2 for $29.99 for Xbox 360.

So I would say it's really worth a shot for one of my favorite games (If not) of last year.

GL Everyone.:D

Wait, why not just get it at Microcenter then? They also have a $15 off coupon on your first purchase there. Few reasons why I actually like Microcenter is because of their coupons. Here is a link to their ad but I still prefer actually getting it at Microcenter. http://viewer.zmags....fc#/95ab8bfc/44

Edit: Oh because it's shady. It's not really $29.99.

cause Micro Center is like 40min's away from my house and just in case someone does not have a Micro Center close I guess.

and possibly a scam as well! I assume the 29.99 is for the original edition (which allows a free upgrade)!

Gee I was just trying to help people out with this deal, I didn't know everyone would just turn on me like this, so much for the awesome CAG community I have followed for the last 2 years or so.

Micro Center clearly marked their ad wrong and I was just pointing it out to everyone.

This community is full of the old lady type you see at stores trying to get everything handed to them for the cheapest price. Its best to not contribute at all and just look at the deals.

Thank you for posting OP. Anyone with a Microcenter nearby, do they have any signs up in store saying this was a misprint?

I'd have to agree with the OP on this. Microcenter should specify the regular price for the 360 version of the game when saying it's available at
$29.99 for another platform as opposed to the other if there is that big of a discrepency in pricing for both platform versions. It's not our fault that the ad interprets to us as both versions as being $29.99.

It's just like they'll call you a vulture if you shop at one of their favorite retail/rental chains that are closing. Like me, and Blockbuster video. I dont hoard every copy of something I find at a closing sale (i'm happy with getting one copy of w/e), but damn if I dont get my moneys worth in a little of everything else. It's almost like a catch 22. I'm here to be a cheapass in every sense of the word to save money anyway I can. Getting a price match on a misprinted ad is no exclusion. If you're (the person who disagrees with it) gonna critisize me, and whoever else for it, then why the hell are you here on these forums? Just save yourself some money, and quit pissing and crying about it. It's a one time shot. If you're a hoarder then that's another story.

Ad scans are not allowed on CAG. Also the ad is not on their website that I can find.

The ad is there. You got to click the tab that reads "Hot Ad Deals". That will take you to the online catalog, which in turn has a link that reads "April Specials". That will bring up the ad.

Damn, I don't have any Microcenters near me. Oh well. Thanks, OP.

(I agree that a lot of the CAGs are little bitches, complaining about something so stupid that they'll just forget about in 2 minutes. I agree with the other poster that said you should just browse deals, because there will always be someone who complains. #FirstWorldProblems)

I wonder if they got any to begin with. I remember that store would be crappy in getting games on a timely manner a couple years ago.

At least you tried to help out the community and not just lurk like 90% of the registered users here do.:applause: So for that I definitely commend you. As for the people getting on you for posting this, I say don't worry about what some random people on the internet think about you.

This community is full of the old lady type you see at stores trying to get everything handed to them for the cheapest price. Its best to not contribute at all and just look at the deals.

It's also full of the soapbox white knights that get on your ass for doing something 'shady', yet I'm sure they've also done their fair share of stuff that other people would consider unscrupulous without even a second thought.

The way the ad is set up ambiguous. It is made to seem like both the PC and 360 version are 29.99 and even 29.99 for the PC EE would be a deal so who knows. Has anyone actually been able to purchase it at Microcenter?

I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested
