Price for MP3 is pretty good if you get the one that comes with GTA IV

So this has been a recurring promotion, does anyone have the details on what you have to go through when you have no intentions of picking up that pre-order and then don't? (Nagging phonecalls, emails, smarmy looks, etc.)

Since, I've apparently got a Target member "on the horn" here, is there any affect on the stores that are getting in these pre-orders that aren't being picked up, short-term or long?

From what I've seen , no affect at all. The more pre orders we sell the more of the game we receive but that's it. It doesn't hurt our scores. I think target does preorders so a guest will come back to the store. Not just for the game but for other needs. (grocery health beauty etc).

I picked the bundle up this morning for my cousin, as he wants both games. Thanks for the recommendation.

Just a heads up on people wanting to get it on the MP3 sale for PC, Amazon has Max Payne 3 + GTA IV Complete bundle or bundled with LA Noire for $29.99 this holiday weekend in both Steam and non Steam versions. A bit cheaper than this deal, especially if you are in a no sales tax area for Amazon. Though it is only in digital form so if you wanted a physical copy to give as a gift, Target is the way to go. Plus Target has the $10 gift card thing so if you shop at Target a lot, it still may be the way to go if you want the GC.

I know nothing about this MP3 and GTAIV bundle, is it some Target exclusive..was going to get it for my buddy who's bday is tommorow. Been debating all weekend which route to go..$30-$35 seems to be the ticket.

It's a no brainer to get the Max Payne 3/GTA 4 or LA Noire bundle and reserve a game for a buck all for $35.99 and get a $10 gift card. GOOD LUCK FINDING THE BUNDLES!!!

Did anyone else notice the prices on the Sony games that recently dropped in price? Mine jacked Uncharted 3 and GT5 XL edition back to $39.99 as well as put infamous 2 at $29.99.

I know they were all $19.99 just last week because I bought GT5 XL edition.

They also put Forza 4 back at $59.99.

I didn't bother checking to see what they'd ring up at as I have no interest in them but they definitely changed the price tags this week.

Not a straight on game deal, but picked up the Westinghouse 39" LED TV for $329. Marked down $70. Perfect fit for the traditional large tube television entertainment center.

How much does GTA4 fetch at best buy and what system was yours for?

Looks like the GTA GH is worth $10.35 @ Amazon.com. Counting the GC's, that makes Max Payne 3 potentially $15!

I was able to get it by typing "Grand Theft" - It is worth $5 ($10 with the 100% trade in deal - may be interesting!).

GTA4 is worth $9 base at GS before promos which could bring it up to $14.40.

GTA IV is worth $5 at Best Buy, but with the 100% trade in bonus you get $10 for it. Between that and the Target card, Max Payne 3 is basically $15 bucks.

Did they modify this promotion? On Sunday I was able to purchase Max Payne 3 / GTA IV bundle ($34.99) and Infamous 2 Collection (39.99) and preorder two games and I got x2 $10 gift cards.

Today I went to purchase Mass Effect 3 N7 CE (Xbox 360) for $49.99 and I went to preorder a game in the same transaction and it did not prompt a $10 GC.

The employee pulled the add and showed me where it said that promotion only applied to "select titles".

The select titles included Max Payne 3 and a few others but did not include Infamous 2 Collection which I had purchased yesterday.

Regardless he was adamant that the Gift Card would only be prompted if I bought one of the games in the add and preorderd a game as well.

I know this wasn't the case yesterday but assumed they had modified the promotion.

Any Target employees know for sure?

It clearly says any game.
