I think there might be a mistake in regards to the target add. I couldn't find the 1600 MS points @ 10$ anywhere in it. I did find a 3 month xbox live gold card for 10$ though. Am I just missing it?


It got changed recently. No idea which item is going to be in the physical ad. It does say there are other items available for $10 though, so we might be in luck.

Tigerdirect must think they're so special to charge more then pretty much every store for a Vita bundle.

Wow. Great time at Walmart. (Not sarcasm, everyone there was nice so if you want to read a good customer review carry on)

I go to the electronics section with my wife and ask to put the item on layaway and the woman there is working her first day. She takes about ten minutes to get the first game (out of three) out but is nice about it. We go to the layaway counter and then wait ten minutes for her to get the layaway person.

Problem is the layaway person had to take a piss so she went off and got another person. This person never did layaway before and had me input my name, address, home and cell phone number, city, and state twice. Of course my wife started asking if we can come back on Black Friday and get the games for those prices, the number one question not to ask (and which I already knew the answer to) so I kept whispering "no no no, don't don't don't" but the lady answered that we would easily be able to and that it would be no hassle at all.

Of course my wife asked more questions but the lady answered very nicely and told me it was a possibility to just come at 9AM Friday and take them for their cheap prices.

Awesome. Thanks Walmart!

This maybe the wrong thread for this but can anyone recommend any 360 exclusives that are NOT Gears of War or Halo?

Ah shit! Just now realized the $25 games are in store only. No Walmart near me. Damn.
Was hoping to pick up WWE 13 on Thursday. :(

The ad scan on slickdeals says "Get in the spirit of savings at your local Microsoft store" so unfortunately, i'm assuming it's not online :-/. damn, didn't notice that when I posted, hopefully its online too though.

Not meaning to be mean, but where in the US do you live there's not a Walmart near you? Even the rural areas of southern IL all have a Walmart within 20-40 minute drive of them.

No it seems the original print run of it that leaked on the sites had that but now it shows the Live card instead, which makes sense as many stores are discounting that.

Those Walmart deals are really enticing but I think I am going to pass. I have a backlog of 10ish games, can get Dishonored or NFS later. Might hit up Target for those live cards though.


Is having a backlog a bad thing or good thing?

The official ad on Target's site showed it as well (looked at it yesterday) but it got changed to 3 months of XBL. I do believe that's what is going to be on sale unless they are just "hiding" the 1600msp, which I'm hoping is the case, if not, their loss. Pretty much should be forced to honor the ad if it's printed and you take it to their store though, if the print ad has the 1600msp and they try to mark it differently.

NYC. Apparently Walmart is illegal here.

Sweet! Thanks for the heads up!

Ah OK makes sense. About the only places in US where Walmart isn't are cities with strong grocery unions and other groups protesting them, but I figured one was nearby in like a suburb or someting.

Is having a backlog a bad thing or good thing?

Its good when you want to be able to play a variety of things on a whim.

Its bad when it becomes so large that it achieves critical mass and becomes sentient.

Only event 3 stuff will work for layaway price match. You may be able to price match other store prices though like best buy or target.

Are the Microsoft Deals for the physical MS stores or Microsoft online store? Would love to get Forza Horizon for $15! I don't want to fight the crowds at Wal-Mart to get that same deal!

If it weren't for BestBuys gaming deals this year I'd probably be spending a lot of money during BF. However I've played every new release that I really wanted without spending much cash at all, from beating and trading in the previously released game. Semi-tempted to get Dishonored again though. Not looking forward to Walmart on Thursday night.

Really hoping that Microsoft Store deal is online as well. Assassin's Creed III for $25 sounds like the perfect way to spend the $25 credit from Halo 4 that's burning a hole in my pocket.

Wow.

I forget what thread it was exactly but there was a collections thread where one cag had shelves full of games. It was the biggest collection I ever saw in my life. Worst than this. It looked like something you would only see at a Gamestop store. A highlight was how dino said ”that's no backlog. That's hoarding.” LOL. :)
