I've had no problem matching Targets B2G1 at Best Buy in the past. It is technically YMMV since they aren't supposed to do bundle deals, but many CAGs have reported success before.


I am definitely tempted to do this myself as I do a lot of business with best buy. Hopefully it will go in my favor.

Thinking of getting:

Monster Hunter 3DS
Tales of Abyss/Devil Survivor Overclocked
Super Mario 3D Land


Planning on:
Monster Hunter 3DS
Dead or Alive 5 Vita
Ninja Gaiden 2 Vita

A poster on another forum tipped me off that Target has both versions of Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate listed as "not sold in stores" - really hoping their online version of this deal includes it!

Check your local Target anyway. I never trusted their website when it comes to whether the game is in-store or not.

I think when its not listed as in stores, that just means most stores wont have it, but some might. Either way I didnt want to risk it and just ordered both versions elseware.

I remember when the Vita came out and they were having a B2G1, I had to go to 4 different ones to finally find one that had Ninja Gaiden Sigma Plus.

Just to put things into retrospective, the game is not out until next Tuesday. So of course it's not currently available IN STORE. I asked my local Target and they said they will have the game out that Tuesday, but the employee I talked to didn't know about the deal yet. So whether we can use Monster Hunter as one of the 3 games is still up in the air.

The store checker online is pretty much never accurate, at least for the 3 or 4 Targets around me. I would just go straight to the store, chances are in your favor.

Damn this looks like a good week to pick up a Wii U for those on the fence. Also a good deal on games considering there is a bunch of new stuff out this week. I dont see there being a better deal for a Wii U for another few months at least. Plus, last time Target had this B2G1 they dropped a bunch of Wii U game prices, making the deal sweeter.


Not to be a pessimist but that is VERY sad if true. The best we can expect from WiiU for the next few months is some deals on old ports and another crappy Lego game :cry:. Outside of maybe a couple Tekken matches, I haven't touched WiiU since I tried to beat ZombiU and encountered 2 game ending glitches after passing the "point of no return". Lesson learned: No more console purchases at launch.

I don't even have Injustice to look forward to anymore either, as I was forced to cancel my pre-order due to the overabundance of DLC/pre-order bonuses (which apparently weren't even available for the WiiU version in the first place!). Really hoping the GOTY version of that game drops in time for Xmas, or the price drops very much very quickly to offset the cost of all that DLC.

Shame about this deal missing Bioshock too. I would have been willing to put $40 on WiiU's port of Need for Speed if it meant I could also get Bioshock Infinite at launch for $40, and GoW Accension.

Same with Luigi's Mansion. I would finally be willing to grab NSMB2 and some other title, but this sale misses it by a day :(

Too lazy to search this thread so sorry if it's a repost but there's also a 20% off coupon off a Wii U accessory that came with my ad. Pretty sure it's nationwide?

I think it's very likely both games will be in stores. Target has always stocked most of Capcom's releases. The "not sold in stores" indication is often wrong and doesn't get updated until after release. For example, last week the new Castlevania 3ds game said not sold in stores and now it is available both on-line and in stores and most stores I have visited this week had plenty of them.

Tried the demo, hated it.

But even if I didn't, it's pretty much an HDified version of the Wii game that Amazon is selling for $15 or so right now. Even if the online component had been disabled on the Wii (and AFAIK it hasn't), I don't know why someone would pay $45 more just for the HDified picture. I don't remember the gamepad adding anything worthwhile to the game, in fact I remember getting frustrated that the map was taking up space on the gamescreen when the 2nd screen was practically empty. Maybe if they'd lower the price to $40 or so AND include the 3DS version for free, like Sony's crossbuy program, I'd give it another chance, but I'm not about to pay Capcom what they are asking for it now.

At the risk of sounding like a hypocrite, I would be all over the WiiU port for Need for Speed if they sold it at a reasonable price, but I'm not going to buy a game I don't want just to get there (and $35 was the limit I had originally set for that game anyways).

Shame you didn't like the demo. From what I hear, it was not very beginner-friendly. But FYI Ultimate has a ton more content than the Wii game. Think SSF4 AE vs vanilla SF4 multiplied by about a factor of 2.

I believe the release version of the game allows you to put HUD elements on the Gamepad and off-TV play is going to be patched in next month.

Posted 15 March 2013 - 03:44 AM

Just did a search trying to make sure--but am I seriously the only CAG commenting on this thread to say that the title didn't immediately give the impression it was "B2G1 games" sale rather than, "B2G1 Skylanders" sale?? I've been looking at this thread's title all week thinking, "yawn, Skylanders sale again?" Just me huh, fuhrealz? :-s


Has anyone had success in getting Walmart to price match a B2G1?

As a WM drone, I might as well try being useful while I'm here: if ever a sale like this lists the exact prices in the ad for what a game will comeout to be, (officially) WM will PM it--everything else is extremely-YMMV.
(Poorass Ex: there were some Target sales quite a while ago--can't remember if they were "Percentage-off" sales or if they were "Buy X games Save $Y" or what--but under each game they listed specific prices you'd end up paying--that's PM-able in WM's book).

I was literally saving some (generic American Express) gift cards for a B2G1 sale to pick up some 3DS/Vita games. And, of course, I will be away for nearly the entire time the sale is happening. I do fly back next Saturday (3/23), so I will make a last minute run to Target. Hopefully there's some scraps left for me.
