Punch out with nunchuck?

Target has an "exclusive" version that comes with the nunchuck packed in.
It is in fact the only item that seems to be on sale since it usually goes for $64.99 and is down to $49.99 that week.

Virtua Tennis borders on being worth a pickup for me, just because I like the series.. anyone played it? How is it with WiiMotion+?

I didn't enjoy it that much. I like tennis games and have enjoyed past Virtua Tennis installations and Top Spin games, but not so much this one. If you're a fan of the series you might have some fun with it for a bit, but I'm glad I rented it instead of buying it. I probably wouldn't pay $30 for it. Maybe $20 would be the right price for me.

Hmm looks like I will definitely be picking up Wii Sports Resort on Sunday at 10 am. I have a $10 gift card to use from the purchase of the Bigs 2. So I spend $39.99 + tax and get a $20 giftcard. Not to bad. Dont most games usually release on Tuesdays? Wonder why WSR has a sunday release date?

Shit, I might have to bite on that Punchout w/ Nunchuck.

I've been staring at it with its insanely high $65 price tag for a while hoping they'd just clearance it.

But this is basically like buying Punchout for full price with a free Nunchuck.

Or to flip it, you figure the Nunchuck goes for $18-20 new, and Punchout at its lowest has been $40, to pay $50 means you're getting Punchout for $30.

Or to look at it another way with internet deals, if you could score Punchout for $40-45, you're getting a Nunchuck for $5-10.

Either way it sounds pretty good to me. I doubt Punchout will drop much below $40 for a long time because its a first party Ninentdo game.

I think Best Buy pming this will be YMMV. Their policy says they won't PM gift cards, but I remember last time some people managed to get it PMed.


I have always had luck with my local BB when it comes to pming gift card deals.

Is it totally unreasonable to post DVD ads at the same time as games?

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Thanks for the info. Given that Amazon has it as a Gold Box Lightning Deal right now at $20 I'm going to give it a shot (with ECA it's a great price)... out of curiosity, did you try it with Wii Motion Plus, or just the normal game?

Best Buy doesn't pricematch gift cards like they do at other stores. Instead they take the price of the gift card off the total price just did it this past week with 1600 point cards from target.

From bestbuy.com (http://www.bestbuy.c...460&id=cat12098)

How do you handle a price match if an instant gift card is included with a purchase?
The value of an instant gift card with purchase will be considered when calculating a price match. If the combined value of a competitor's product and instant gift card is lower than the combined value of Best Buy's product price and instant gift card, Best Buy will match either the price or the instant gift card value, depending on the offer.


PS they(CSR and a Manager) didn't believe me about this until I pulled it up on my Iphone in the store, then a 2nd manager had to come over and read it to get them to honor it.

This is def. YMMV. I've tried to get BBs to honor this (with print out ready) and had some wench tell me that BB couldn't give me a gift card to TRU...uh...no shit.:roll: I said screw it and just bought the game elsewhere. It's called "murphing" and store managers runners get incentives to do it.

The system takes the amount of the gift card off the price of the game, then charges the value of the gift card on the receipt. Basically, so no one can return the item for full price and get a free gift card out of the deal.


has anyone tried to return the game... Man its freaking awful..... in the past they did not take the price of the giftcard off the game and now that they did they never told the workers

I got one of those xmen games on the last gift card deal..

Well after reading reviews the ds verison sounded like it sucks so it was

xmen 15
gift card 15
total price 30


Well i went to take the game back and they would only give me 1 buck for the game saying the game was only 15 bucks and you got a 15 buck gift card i had to call the 800 line to finally get my 15 back
WOOOO I STINK
