So is this post-Black Friday period where nobody has any good sales because they don't need to?

If I didn't already have EA Sports MMA and Enslaved, I would say those were good deals. Add Vanquish at $39 and that would have been awesome.

TRU can kiss my ass. I ordered a Xbox 360 with a free controller and $25 off for using my AMEX card. They waited forever to ship so I call them 2 days ago and customer service puts a expedited order through. Still no ship today but then I get a email saying they CANCELED my order. I call them and she tells me it was a problem with the AMEX card but when I ask to reorder she says they are out of stock. What? How can that be when you just canceled my order...there should still be the one you reserved for me. I am SO pissed right now because I passed on other deals last week for this and now I am stuck holding my you know what and its going to cost me $50 more to get what I ordered. KMA TRU.


How'd you get customer service to expedite an order for shipping? I had a similar situation ordering an item on TRU.com and it said "located in stock" for the last 4 days and after calling customer service i politely asked if they could upgrade my UPS ground to a 2 day delivery service and they said no. :cry:

The 160GB PS3 + free controller + $20 psn card seems decent. I wouldn't say it was an epic fail, maybe a "Fail Edition."

A little better if it is one of those holiday bundles people don't seem to want (PS3 160 GB PS3 + Star Wars Force Unleashed 2 + Prince of Persia Blu-ray bundle).

Is there a better deal this coming week I missed and is the controller a generic 3rd-party controller or a Dual Shock 3?

This seems like any other regular weekly ad. I really don't think it qualifies as an "Epic Fail". Maybe all of you were just spoiled by Black Friday?

Enslaved is usually like $25 at Amazon every other day

$299.99
:ps3: 160GB PS3 with free controller and $20 PSN card

Looks alright, maybe applying the Red card and get 10% on it... But still, the PS3 holiday bundle is a much better buy, wondering if it's the holiday bundle in the Target's promotion?

Is there a "of equal or lesser value" this time?


lol I can't believe this is even a question. As someone else said, they aren't going to give you 50% off a $60 game if you buy a $10 one.

Once I've seen games for cheaper, be it Black Friday or another sale, I'm not going to bite on a higher price. Retailers should learn, once you mark it down, that's the value of it.

Yeah, that would be interesting if it works for any leftover PS3 bundles.

I agree. You can't make me forget that many of these $49 games were only $29 just last week.

But I'm guessing the "target" audience of this ad isn't directed at CAGers, but more towards the non-gaming, gift-buying consumers that don't know the difference either way.

The Target Red Card gives you 5% back.... you might have been thinking of the TRUs Reward Card which does give you 10% currently.

I'd say that PS3 bundle is pretty good.

The consumer that sees the "$59.99 as advertised" sign and bites?
