Was at the Target in St. Petersburg, FL (Park St. and Tyrone) and they had Zelda Skyward Sword on temporary price cut for $19.99. The price is good until 2/2 (Thanks Deserter Goose), and all the copies I saw at the 2 locations I went to had the soundtrack CDs included. The game still registers for 50 coins on Club Nintendo as well. : )

I don't think it's YMMV, I picked it up in MA as well. Oddly it's in the endcap listed at 49.99 but in the isle listed at 19.99.

I actually went to best buy to pm and they refused.... Even offered to buy it at target, bring in my receipt, and buy it at best buy, to return my other copy to target... Obviously best buy doesn't want my money... Spend hundreds of $'s there each year.... Definitely will not be back in the store in my town...

Yeah, don't think its YMMV either. Went to another Target (Largo Mall) looking for something else and saw it on TPR for $19.99 as well. I'll leave the tag on there for now until a couple other people chime in.

Anyone willing to snag me a copy? Willing to pay price plus shipping and a few bucks for gas. All the Targets around me are out of stock.

You are probably right. I think I will just wait until it goes NS.

Anyone notice a date range marked on the tag? I see those sometimes and wondering if it will be the same price tomorrow. Stores tend to change deals on Sundays so I'm hoping I don't miss out.

"When making a purchase, or during the return and exchange period after your purchase from a Best Buy retail store, please talk to a Customer Specialist or go to the Customer Service desk for help with your Price Match request. Please bring proof of the lower price that is still in effect that you want the Best Buy retail store to price match."
Doesn't say what kinda proof.... Also doesn't make up for the rudeness by the manager working...

Date range if I remember is through today, the 26th... But maybe you will be lucky to buy tomorrow with a new sale!

Why not? The Wii is on its way out and the only way retailers will allow space for the games is for them to be marked at the new low price. Nobody is paying $50 for them anymore but at $20 they will sell.

By around September most 360 and ps3 games will be slashed to $30-40 as well. No one wants to pay full price for "old games."

Almost all my targets don't have these anymore, or the ocarina 3ds game. Wonder if that means the "first print" with the CD are finally not being made anymore. I've seen one or 2 packages at walmart and target without the CD icon, but not sure if those are just taken out of the bundles or if they are actually a new printing without CD.

ED's citing the Wii tradition of keeping old first party games at $50 MSRP. $20 Nintendo Selects took years.

But yes, why not? Indeed.

Zelda Sucky Sword ruined The Legend of Zelda series.


Crappy motion controls
crappy linear areas
recycled areas
casual watered down garbage
Fi is by far the worst companion in any Zelda

I can tell you that the price should be good until 2/2, assuming all Targets follow the same sales (and last I checked, they do). Just finished working this morning and checked the sale tag before I left.

dang this seems like a good deal. Haven't played a zelda game since.... Link's Awakening? Pretty tempted @ $20 especially since there won't be any new zeldas for a while.

You know, there is a legitimate debate about how this wasn't one of the better Zeldas, or how they have been releasing the same game for years. Or how Fi was a poor companion. Or how the motion control didn't work as well as hoped. But you sound like a 6 year old. "Zelda Sucky Sword"? Really? Say that to yourself in the mirror and then think about how you typed it.

And by the way, ALL Zeldas have been "casual". They are intended to be appreciated and beaten by the average gamer. Have you just not been paying attention? And if you don't like it, feel free to not pay $19.99 at Target for it.

Damnnnnnn. The part about looking in the mirror made me laugh.

I'd pick this up but I don't have the motion plus remote thingy. Good deal
