Yes. Assassin's Creed 3, Scribblenauts Unlimited and FIFA Soccer 13 are pictured and scheduled to be released on Tuesday.


The weird thing is that I think all of those games are $60, which should exclude them from the deal.

Hey guys/gals thanks for the 3DS vs 3DS XL input. I was on the fence about which model to get but after this discussion I will grab the XL and skip BF Ad on the bundle.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

I haven't seen the ad, but from the OP...

"Buy 1 Get 1 40% off ALL 3DS, DS, Wii and Wii U games priced $49.99 or below."

Since the Wii U games are $60 it just seems a little weird.

huh?

He probably means the "Buy 1, get 1 40% off" deal that only applies to games priced $49.99 and below, not the $10/$30 off deal.

EDIT: Whoop, too slow.

ESPN Sports Connection and Rabbids Land are pictured with the B1G1 40% off promo so I'm assuming those titles are $49.99.

Will definitely try to pm this at bb, but prolly not on release night as they might be more likely to just say no as it might create a problem with having so many people right there all buying the same thing and wanting to hop on the pm bandwagon if they approve it. Will likely just bring my receipt in later the next day or so and ask for a pm.

$14.99 DVD
$22.99 3 Disc Blu-ray Combo
$27.99 5 Disc 3D Blu-ray/DVD Combo

There's also a promo for a $10 gc with any Disney DVD or Blu-ray purchase of $40 or more.


Thanks! Looks like I'll be keeping my Amazon preorder, unless Disney releases a coupon.

I don't think the $15 gaming coupon will work on hardware. The AD just features the most recently released PS3/X360 games. Also if you had received any of the latest gaming coupons, the fine print is getting more specific. They can only be used on gaming software and accessories. Where before you can use them on anything related to video games.


Do you think I buy Paper Mario 3DS and another 3DS game 50% for a total of $59.98 pretax and use a $15 gaming coupon from an earlier purchase will this new spend $45 or more $15 coupon print out? Or will I need a total of $60 pretax to use my coupon and get a new one?

I guess it applies if you're dumb enough to have bought several $60 games a month before BF.


Call me stupid then since I will still be getting the games for less than what most will pay on BF. You just have to be smart about it. Wait? what?

The only Wii U Games that would be eligible are those that are out before the 17th (and under $50). Those are:

Rabbids Land
Your Shape 2013
ESPN Sports Connection
Just Dance 4

Might pm BL2, BO2, and Dishonored. Already pm'd AC3 and MOH. Seeing as Best Buy isn't matching anything from 22-24th, this might be the best I can do for now.

Definitely going to pick up paper mario + professor layton for $60. Also the Shop Your Way Rewards iOS app has several coupons that might work with this deal as well ($5 off $50 purchase, 10000 points on $45 purchase, etc..)

Still no 3DS xl bundles. What exactly is the big difference between the XL and regular 3DS besides bigger screen. And does the Bigger Screen make a big difference. My son is wanting one this year and I never have been a fan of handheld gaming so don't know much about these.



How old is your son? If he is younger the regular 3ds may work better for him because it's not as clunky. However that being said if he is new to handheld gaming and needs help with games it will much easier for you to help him with the 3ds xl with out having to take the handheld away.

If he's older hands down get the 3dsxl. It's worth it for the few extra $.

He's 5 y/o. So I don't think he is going to care which one he gets. But like you said he will probably need help sometimes with games. I would personally prefer the 3DSxl but my wife doesnt think its worth the extra money and would rather just get the 3DS.

When they did these deals before when Josh was around, it was software only. Hardware did not count. Also, the PSN and XBox cards were iffy. I think one sale they counted and another they did not, so be warned that that may not work.

Even though I'm not a mom yet I would still be leaning towards the the xl. It's something he'll grow into and it will allow you both to interact with it. I know he'll be over joyed no matter the screen size

Which ever you decide to get I would suggest getting the Nerf armor. While it ads a little more weight it does an excellent job of protecting the system from drops etc.


As a side note GameStop may be doing a XL bundle for Black Friday

They have it up fror pre order on their website

I'm hoping that Nintendo releases some sort of XL Bundle here (like the white Japanese Animal Crossing Bundle). Not really feeling the Red and Blue colors. The $20 off does sound tempting otherwise.
