Not sure why but this is the 2nd time I have ordered a game on expedited delivery with my Silver membership and they are sending it UPS ground. I am glad they got it out already but usually it is 2 day when you use expedited.

No, you're not the only one. I don't see the point in getting both versions.


It's easier to get version exclusive Pokemon, can be useful for handling storage of Pokemon, good for starter/legendary farming for trades, and Pokemon games go up in value years after they've been released, despite selling tons of copies.

I personally haven't owned more than one version of Pokemon game for the DS generations, though I owned every version in prior generations (Gameboy-Gamboy Advance). There's just too many to own them all. Seriously- that would be 9 Pokemon games just counting those on the DS. Plus, with Wi-Fi it's relatively easy to trade with friends.

My store had a few LE but rung up $49.99. Employee had me grab regular edition


Yeahhh.... Mine DEFINATELY is the limited and rang up at $15... Try again tomorrow? I went at 5:50PM EST. There shouldn't be any differentiation between the 2, it's just a first run copy really, also given as a free upgrade for preordering.

My store still had a good amount of everything on sale in stock, but then again I got 3 Best Buy's around me in a 10 mile radius.

Also I now realize how much I shop there or do store pick up when as soon as I got to the store pick up line the person running it saw me and went to the H's for last name, got my stuff for me before I even said a word.

Same thing happened to me today. What I found was I had grabbed a LE that had the slipcover and an extra sticker saying "Best Buy exclusive.." rather than the normal LE I was used to seeing. Had a different UPC which rang up $49.99 rather than the other LE's which rang up $14.99.

Yeah, It's the slipcover, as a CAG, I see them skipping the other LE's for a slipcover version and getting the wrong priced one's. Try again tomorrow and get those lovely babies.

O.O

damn I hope that was a production error, would be pretty sketchy taking back opened games and selling them as new.


Hey the opposite happens too! Fatal Frame reprints, anyone? (not interested in the genre myself)

Same with me. People don't understand how big the United States is. They think the Northeast is comprised of New York and Boston, and the rest is part of Canada. I bet half of the CAG community couldn't tell you where Maine and Ohio are on a blank map. It's sad.


Fuck right pal.

Honestly I'm skeptical whether Sega released Infinite Space for DS in the state of Washington.

When I went to BB today, the LE Darksiders 2 rang up as $49.99. Non-LE rings up as $15. FYI.


It's actually pretty... terrible. :-#
You collect stickers for every attack. No basic attacks - all sticker attacks. It gets really annoying collecting all those stickers just to do a few jump or hammer moves.
Special stickers? Yeah, a handful of them, but... the enemies aren't varied, bosses are kind of lame...

If you're a fan of the Paper Mario series, prepare yourself for some... disappointment.:cry:

You don't gain stats when you level (other than HP); all attacks are based on the stickers you find. So it's SORT OF an RPG... in the loosest sense of the word. More like an action game with light RPG elements, IMO. But slow, as you're managing sticker inventory and choosing stickers to attack.


Well that doesn't sound fun. Maybe I won't pick this up then.

Bought Darksiders II yesterday but am way to lazy to go pick it up. Probably go Tuesday when I'm in the area, unless I forget.

Shows how much I want the game, I guess.

All my local store has in stock is paper Mario and both pokemon games. I already had white 2 once and sold it for high trade in credit, so I may pick up black 2 for the club Nintendo points. I can't get there until Monday so hopefully the games stay in stock.

Sorry if it's already been posted, but Amazon has matched the Paper Mario deal:
http://www.amazon.co...rds=paper mario

Also, if any of you are having trouble finding the games you want at Best Buy, try PM'ing at Target!
I pulled up the games I wanted in the Best Buy app on my phone for the clerk to verify the prices and I got Epic Mickey 2 for Wii and Darksiders 2 (LE version!) for PS3 for $27.55 total with my Red Card. :D

I hope it's the former, because there's not a single copy of Kid Icarus: Uprising anywhere here in New York according to Best Buy in store stock check.

Went to Target and was able to PM epic Mickey for wii, pokemon black and white 2 and professor Layton. They wouldn't let me PM Darksiders 2 for Xbox 360 because they had limited edition and the one listed on BB website was regular for sale. But 3 out 4 isn't bad!

Thanks to the OP. I've been sitting on a $5 RZ gift card and one of my many local stores had PM:SS for pick up today (all others show 3-5 days) so I got it for $16.23 after tax.

Have you tried to do an OMS, basically they order the item to be sent to your home or shipped to a store and pay for it right there. Doing an OMS for a product sometimes works for items out of stock online/in-store. An OMS can be done at Customer service or the pickup section, if you can't find an employee how knows how to do one.

What is an OMS? I tried searching for this acronym on Google, and couldn't find a suitable meaning for this. Can you please enlighten me? Thank you.

I really want to buy PL:MM, but it's not available for shipping, or for pick up at any store in my area.

I think it means Order Management System. Best Buy employees have access to it on registers and it lets them order items for customers directly from the warehouse. The ordered items can be shipped to your home or any Best buy store for pickup. The big advantage is buying stuff that is out of stock online/in-store or using Gamer coupons on games out of stock in-store. The warehouse might not have any inventory left for certain items, so it does not work all the time.

Picked up my copy of Black 2 from Altamonte Springs, FL store. While there I checked out the Nintendo section and saw they still had Layton even though the online stock checker said they were out. Grabbed myself a copy. There were 3 more Layton when I left. When the clerk checked me out and saw the price I think she wanted one too. They also had 1-2 copies of Kid Icarus and 1 copy of White 2. Black 2 was gone, and I don't remember if Paper Mario was there. Anyway, if you have a BB near you, try visiting the store even if online checker says oos.
