so anyone find Pokemon Conquest at TRU yet? i notice that the website says it can be shipped and picked up from store (no stores has it in stock around me or yet)... im hoping they are restocking it this week soon.

BB hasn't received many copies of the game; my local store has only received 5 copies thusfar.

My local store got a shipment in yesterday, and by the afternoon showed TheatRhythm in stock. Then I noticed Conquest was on backorder. I went to the store anyway, thinking that I'd just pick up a different 3rd game if they didn't have a copy.
Sure enough, they didn't. I asked one of the employees about it (the game is in this week's ad, after all). After checking their stock room, I found out about the limited quantity shipped out.

Employee tries to order Conquest through the website, and then tie it together with the 2 games I was buying. They'd ship to my house, and I'd still get the B2G1 deal. This requires a Manager override.

Manager comes over, sees that the game is backlogged in their system. According to him, they can't sell me a copy of a game they don't have. His solution: look through the system for another store with the game in stock, and have them ship it to this store.

Turns out, between the states of Wisconsin and Minnesota (where - I might point out - BB is headquartered), they have all of 2 copies of Pokemon Conquest in stock....both in the same store in Minnesota. After the employee making a series of calls to the Minnesota store (including being put on hold, and dealing with someone in the games department over there who didn't know how to do what he was being asked to do), they were finally able to sell me a copy of the game. I should be able to pick it up sometime in the next week.


tl;dr -- my apologies. Long story short....if they can track down a copy anywhere nearby, you can take advantage of the B2G1. Just expect it to take an hour for them to figure out how.

Does anybody know whether you can PM TRU's price of NCAA? And then add to the B2G1 purchase? I doubt I'll take advantage of the deal unless I somehow find a store with both Theatrhythm and Conquest though.

Nope, PM's don't stack with b2g1 it's double dipping.

Anyone have any idea on if the B2G1 will be brought back on the site again?

None of the games I want are in stock at the Best Buy here.

I''d suggest calling CS during off peak hours & having them manually adjust the prices.

Have they been doing that for people?

Do you know if they'll adjust it if I do the order online and then call? Reason I'd rather do this is because I have a lot of gift cards with random amounts on them I want to use as well as a few RZ certificates, so doing all that over the phone would kind of suck.

If you just want the game, it looks like just about every Gamestop has been restocked in the last couple days and it's back in stock online. Obviously not as good as the $10 GC from TRU or the B2G1 from BB especially since GS is charging $5 more than everyone else, but it's another option.

They'll do alot if you ask & get the right person. My suggestion would be to get all the values of the GC's look them up on the BB site shouldn't take too long I just did 17 I had from trades. Write it down & have everything in your cart make it as simple as possible for the CSR. If the deal can be seen online they usually will make the needed corrections.

honestly, the ship has long sailed regarding the online b2g1 promo from bb, due to the special "incident". It is looking grim, so for those who are still interested, you should just go to the store, and get the b2g1 deal, if not, then just forget it

YMMV. I just got my NCAA PM down from my B2G1 purchase of yesterday; it wasn't my free game. It required manager override with zero problems.

Very disappointing.

Maybe I'll get lucky and the store will get the games I want in stock before Sunday. Probably not, but looks like that's the only way I'll get in on the deal at this point.

This. I saw a wall full of them in a Gamestop in the mall today. Perhaps the glut was due to the fact they were charging 5 bucks OVER MSRP:roll:. TRU and BB are definite no goes unfortunately.

At least as TRU goes, it wouldn't hurt to call. Although the website said none of the nearby stores had any, I called one and they had them. Turns out the "shipment" of Conquests that I was told about on Sunday turned out to be a single copy.

didn't see they made it "in-store only" on the site so in-store p/u combined with return/rebuy would be the only way now.

YMMV. I just got my NCAA PM down from my B2G1 purchase of yesterday; it wasn't my free game. It required manager override with zero problems.

EXTREME YMMV b/c this is something managers usually refuse outright. I've got it done only by purchasing enough total titles that it would be a hassle to cancel it all out & do 2 seperate sales & re-price match all the items.

I received my games today in the mail already, and they shipped all 3 games in a box - by far the best shipping experience I've ever had with Best Buy/Mail Innovations. I probably shouldn't get used to it, though.

I assumed this was the case, since the copy of Devil May Cry 4 (360) I scanned/bought today was listed at $3.75. Glad to know everything's working properly now.

Would the controller bundles be eligible for the B2G1 free deal? Like the God of War bundle with Red Controller?

They aren't suppose to because the controller makes it an "accessory" bundle but you may get lucky if you are friendly with your CS.

lol Best Buy CSR just said it was "impossible" to do an even exchange on a b2g1 bundle on the not $0 game. Which I know is untrue based on my fellow cags.

Oh well guess I'll try one more time later

I'd been watching TRU's online this week and they showed out of Pokemon C all week. Then this morning suddenly in stock. So I get over there and they say they are out. I get to them to check that media room and no dice. I have a feeling there was a box of them in the warehouse that hadn't made it to the floor yet. They all just looked at me.

What really annoyed me was that they said they don't do rainchecks. I'll check tomorrow but watch it "show up" on Sunday...after the ad.

Good luck. I work next to a Best Buy and I've checked every day this week for Theatrhythm to no avail. Same with Pokemon Conquest.

I ended up buying it full price at GameStop. Good game though.

Those are the exact three games I want. The only one Best Buy has here though is Theatrhythm. :cry:


All I can do is hope they miraculously put the b2g1f back on the site tomorrow.

As part of the B2G1 deal, I bought Metal Gear Solid for PS Vita last Sunday, for in-store pickup. It wasn't in stock, so it had to be shipped to store. I received a notice that the game is delayed and back-ordered for shipping, so I don't know when I'll get my notice that the game can be picked up, but it's been back in stock at the store for several days. Can I just go there and grab a copy off the shelf and ask them to give it to me, or do I really need to wait an indeterminate amount of time for it to be shipped?
