L.A. Noire Guide>>>>>$14.99

I wonder if this price is only with purchase of LA Noire? If not, then I hope this is a trend they follow with other guides. I miss the days of $9.99-$14.99 non CE guides.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

so what's the deal here? If they're only offering a $10 GC in store, can't I just price match TRU's offer and just pay $45 instead of getting the gift card?


Nope they usually on deduct the gc value when they dont offer a gc themselves so they will increase the BB gc to $15...you can however price match kmart when the game drops to $40 w/i 30 days. That's what I'll be doing, plus I get the all the credit.

Does the Wii deal work on pre-orders? Skyward Sword would be my third game.

Just looked on Best Buy's website. There's nothing really worth getting that's $29.99. Lost in Shadow is the only one it seems I'd bother getting.

Wish it was B2G1 Free on $29.99 and under games. Would get a lot of shovelware/budget titles to move off the shelves.

While this is true for the most part, Metroid: Other M and Kirby's Epic Yarn have hit the $10-15 range this past month, so there is still hope, especially after the new console is unveiled at E3 in a few weeks.

True those Epic Yarn and Other M are some of Nintendo's worst selling games for 2010 and most stores have a TON in stock so it was a move to get through the excess inventory.

I wonder if this price is only with purchase of LA Noire? If not, then I hope this is a trend they follow with other guides. I miss the days of $9.99-$14.99 non CE guides.

The sale price of the guide does not require the purchase of LA Noire.

Does the Wii deal work on pre-orders? Skyward Sword would be my third game.

In-store it will not work for pre-orders because you are essentially not purchasing LoZ Skyward Sword in full, instead your are only putting $5 down. Online it will work because you are paying the full amount for pre-order.

Nintendo always release their greatest hits líne at the end of their current consles life cycle.they are doing that for the Wii right now.i think they were released already at least in europe i think

I thought that Brady Games cancelled the limited edition guide. Both Amazon and Gamestop have taken it down from their site.


Im 99.99999% sure this has been cancelled. I had the LE guide preordered at gamestop almost a month ago and the sku was removed from there system. I would have thought Best Buy would have removed it from the ad because this happened weeks ago...........but im still hoping its true, lol.

Someone keeps rating my Target threads with one star. I'm guessing he wants me to stop doing them then, I take it?

Appreciate the thread and will star it accordingly. Used to do ad-set for target and I know how much of a PITA it can be.

I never rate these things and I find some of the ratings to be a bit baffling myself. I wouldn't take it personally. I think the rating has nothing to do with you, and more likely has to do with Target having another typical crappy week. I for one appreciate the post, however, cause I'm always curious about what's on tap for next week.

Ahhh. So it's a $5 drop from the usual price then.:cry: I was kinda hoping the game guide publishers smartened up and actually dropped prices back down to $15 for the max price for a non LE/CE/SE guide.:-#

With how many places you can find the same info that's in the guides online nowadays it's a miracle they sell any of these things anymore.:roll:

the wii games are the new greatest hits ones i believe. I did buy them a week or two ago from walmart (target didn't have any) to return/rebuy when the price droped since i wanted the original label ones. But someone said the new GH line is actually a different sku which would be odd. Can anyone confirm/deny if they are actually different skus?

It's not you they probably hate the MSRP ads keep on posting.
People probably 1-2 star ones that have alot of OT banter that doesn't relate to the thread too.

...someone said the new GH line is actually a different sku which would be odd. Can anyone confirm/deny if they are actually different skus?


I can't verify for sure with these games but coming from a fiery pit of 11yrs in Retail Hell, I can tell you that normally if a game (or a cd, or a dvd) is republished, even if for nothing more than to use diff't cover art (eg. "Look Look! I'm award winning! Buy me!?") then it's normally a diff't UPC (new, extra slipcovers thrown on top, not withstanding with that theory).

Normally though the same product will all be cross-referenced as proverbially the same-exact item and ends up with a very strong potential for getting the same markdown... but that's not 100% the case. Not too long ago, we had dusty black label copies of PS2 games (or were they PS1...) that would ringup for full retail but then we'd have their GH counterparts on the same rack for $15.

In my experience it's really a crapshoot with what the industry wants to do, and whether or not the distributor really has their shit together when the new version comes out.

I think people are rating the deals not the thread. Either way don't take it personally, there are a lot of trolls on the Internet.

I didn't rate it but maybe the one star is because the usual funny target thread name is missing....
