I just got back from Best Buy and they have the newly released Viewtiful Joe Double Trouble for the Nintendo DS for $29.99. This game is $39.99 everywhere else. Also if you use a GCC, it would only be $24.99 ($15 off list price).

There's a scan of it in this thread, but I'm not sure if Best Buy accepts scans. It's probably YMMV on that.

I'm planning to try it out next week on Mario Kart (and maybe VJ), so I'll let you know if it works.

Just a heads up, VJ is in most BB's backroom so you have to ask for them to bring it out.

Thanks, I've been looking forward to this game. 24.99 after the coupon seems like a great deal right off the bat. Thanks, OP.

That's a pretty sweet deal--that's the second time a $39.99 game has released at BB for $29.99 (Lunar was the other one).

Great find, OP! The price is good online, too.

Was going to pick this title up elsewhere for $38, shipped, but BB's is by far the cheapest atm.

Thanks for saving me some $...

Bah, my BB has it in the back and both the employees I asked wouldn't bring it out, said they'e not supposed to sell it before the release date.

Picked up the last copy at my local BB. It was out on the floor, but there was no shelf tab for it (No price on the game either).

Seems like no one else is having trouble getting employees to bring a copy out, or there's copies on the shelves. I'm jealous, looks like I'll have to wait until Friday to pick it up (since that's the date @ the BB website).

In my past experiences, I had to ask for recent DS titles cause I don't think they stock the area very well. I had to ask them for Wario Ware, Meteos, and Trauma Center. Meteos had been out for a couple weeks and it still was in the back.

I asked 2 different employees to grab one out of the back, neither would oblige :cry:

And it sucks because the Gamestop I work at got copies in on Thursday, and I know it's already on the shelves, but I'd rather save $15 and get it at BB.

As far as them stocking DS games, that's definitely true. IIRC, Castlevania was out at least a week before I saw it on the shelves. Although for that game I got lucky and an employee grabbed one from the back.

Is VJ: DT $29.99 YMMV deal or is it at every store?

I went to BB yesterday and they didn't have VJ: DT. Today I was talking to my friend who works at BB and I asked him if they had the game instock and he said they were in the back. So I'll check tomorrow. I also hope the store gets their copies of MK:DS a day early. :)

it's MSRP is 29.99...every other store is just marking it up. You can even order from ubisoft directly for 29.99 with free shipping.

Thanks OP. Picked up VJ:DT for $25 after GGC. I got the last copy on the shelf, though after talking to the BB guy, he said he had more in the back.

On a different note, he also mentioned that Guitar Hero was selling very well, which was good news. Harmonix and RedOctane deserve to have a hit for such a great game.

No, you are incorrect. So you're telling me Target, K-mart, Wal-Mart, Amazon.com, Buy.com, Toys R US, EB, GameStop, Game Crazy, and Game Rush all just happen to sell this game for $10 over the normal retail of DS games just to 'mark it up'? Ubi-Soft may sell it directly for $29.99, but that does not mean its the MSRP of it. I find it hard to beleive nearly every other store that sells videogames all decided to mark this one single title up $10.

Even at Capcom official site it's marked at $40. This BB deal is great for anybody who wants to pick up the game now.

Don't expect this stay cheap at BB forever either. Castlevania DS was cheap originally at BB, then later went up to $35 like everywhere else.
