I don't think it was hoarders that depleted most of the stock. The item was already sold out in most stores when Vyse gave us the heads up 4 days ago. It was only available in 2 out of the 10 closest Best Buy to me.

I try my best to inform people about the BB DOTDs including posting them in the OP when somebody like Vyse comes forward with early information so people don't have to go digging through the thread. I even had the time posted of when the deal should go live.

$9.99 game + kingdom hearts + lowest price so far + low stock = fast sell out

Tip for next time:

  • Check the OP once daily.

:applause:If you got the game before others than how is it your fault for others not being awake or quick enough to get it. I miss out on deals all the time but never once did I think that I was being robbed b/c I missed out on the deal. Congrats to those that got in on it. I hope I have better luck next time.

Why does it really matter? Not like they will instantly sell out.

So to all the people who bought 5 copies or bought copies without even owning the system, would you mind selling me yours for the price you paid and free shipping? Since you know, you basically stole the copies from other people who can and will actually play them. :|


Arbitrage. They stayed up late and bought in bulk so soccer moms and other inattentive folks can get a better-than-MSRP deal down the road through Amazon, eBay, Craigslist, whatever. Don't be a hater.

Huh. Wake up at 4:30 (not for this deal, sadly that is wake up time for me these days) and after a bit of start the day check CAG and remember this deal, only to find out it is already sold out.

I won't even get the DotD email from BB for another 3 hours and the item already isn't available. Wonder if they will swap out something else (doubtful).

Ah well, I was going to pick up the game for my backlog for $10, not even play it instantly, so I guess the hoarders saved my $10.

Sucks for those CAGs where were wanting it to play instantly.
The battle's done, and we kind of won, so we sound our victory cheer

This game was pretty low in stock or unavailable online at the best buys near me when I checked earlier in the week. So anyone thinking about the hoarders buying up all the stock is a theory I wouldn't even mention. The only one I will go to is the one by my job as I saw it was available the night before the deal went live. Hopefully I can get a copy as soon as they open at 10am.

Good luck to those who try in store as well

I'm bummed that I wasn't able to get in on this deal. Next time I'll buy the item ahead of time and pm later. Waste of time/gas but I'll know I get it before them hoarders.

You're kidding right? Best Buys aren't even open yet.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

Of course you managed to pick it up. With no one in the store and your phasing through walls super powers you were guaranteed a copy. I need to learn your ways. They sure are going to be surprised when the store opens in a few hours.

Typical American attitude these days... I was lazy, but I DESERVE the fruits of others labor! Why can't I be given the fruit?!? WAAAAHHHHHHH!!!

Annoying. How about you get up and get the shit you want earlier next time? Or not bitch about those who did? That's a better plan. I'll sell you one for 29.99 shipped.

Tip for next time:

  • Check the OP once daily.


I read this thread many times a day, checked back when the prices usually go live, and I still missed it. It isn't quite that simple ;).

I'm heading to bed now - that is the queue for Best Buy to add more stock and/or lift the in-store pickup restriction. So you early East Coast types will probably luck out again.

Thanks OP. I'm glad I made my order as soon as the deal went live.

For those of you that missed out on this deal, why don't you try PMing at Target? You might get a cashier that fails to notice that it's sold out online. In my experience, they only verify the price and not the availability. YMMV.

I can imagine if perfectmf1386 would've went to that store he wouldn't have been able to get a copy an hour ago like he posted! But that is cool to know.

It worked for me just now and I'm awaiting the pick-up email.

The add to cart button is now working, instead of saying "sold out online". So it looks like some more are back in stock, guys.

Good luck!
