I got Luigi's Mansion for $34.99 during the 3DS XL promotion for a free game. I thought $34.99 was high. I never thought the game would still hold its price! We should've seen $29.99 by now. :)


Doubt it, first party Nintendo, sequel to a kind of beloved game, new entry, limited supplies, huge marketing push (this thing was advertised on Disney Channel! Almost nothing besides other Disney stuff is advertised on there. I mean they don't even have ads!) make LM: DM more in line with something like a NSMB or other core Mario game. Those things hold their price.

DKR3DS is a remake and a 'lesser' franchise. Wouldn't be surprised to see that drop new to around $20 on sale at one point.

Might hop on LM: DM. Despite knowing why it won't drop, still kind of feel like $35 is too much. Wish I had seen this sooner, might have hopped on that DKR3DS, tried for a PM, and then just sold it on CL or something/use the $15 SYWR thing for a $20 LM: DM. Oh well, will know better for next time.

I hate to be the one to ruin it for you fine folks, but Luigi's Mansion is $34.99 next week. I have the ad in my hand, was gonna match it at best buy myself. Everything else is correct


Thanks for the update. You just saved my butt because I just put the extra five dollars + tax aside in my wallet so I wouldn't of spent it on Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate. =)

Nice to see a sale on the 3DS XL again, just wish it was a little bit lower to make upgrading an easier decision. Having more colors would help too (I want black like the original 3DS) but that's another topic..

Is the Injustice coupon stack just using the magazine coupon with the sale price or is there something else?
Keep thinking about this one. :)

Interested to see if the price match thing works for anyone. Wanting some NHL action and $20 sounds about right.

Brain Age Concentration Training for the 3DS is one i've been wanting to pick up for awhile. i'd like to pick this up now but i feel like this will hit around $12-$15 like Crosswords Plus 3DS and Art Academy: Lesson's for Everyone did at Best Buy over the last couple months.

Nearist K-Mart is just under 7 miles away so that's not too much of a big deal if i'm around somewhere in the area. why couldn't this be $12 like Crosswords Plus was a couple months back?. Ugh... lol.

I just ended up going to the store this morning to get my copy because I wasn't sure if the website was going to update or not. Keep in mind that if you guys go in store to get a copy today it might not be out on the shelf.
One store told me that it wasn't coming out until Tuesday and the guy refused to check anywhere else for the game and at the second store the guy had to go up by the CS desk to get the game and told me the release date was today, even though it's been out since Friday. Then they wonder why their sales are down.:wall::wall::wall:

Wait, this would work on the 3DS XL (on sale this week for $174?) I could get it for $154 if I agree to pre-order something? can I cancel the pre order later with no loss?

To follow up on eldergamer's question, TRU does have a promo if you buy a 3DS or XL and buy either NSMB 2, Donkey Kong Country Returns 3D, or Luigi's Mansion you'll get $40 off. Maybe someone can swing a PM with that. It's on the last page of the ad if you have that in hand.

that TRU promo is considered as a package deal and target doesnt PM package deals

i have done PM and the preorder card thing successfully before. but last time when they had the $10 off disney games with preorder I got some denial based on no double dipping. I think I was successful one out of 3 tries. getting JD4 for 99 cents may raise some suspicions so I think i will try the higher price games. good luck!

Sorry if my post is confusing:
You price match Amazon's price at Target and stack with the $20 off promo

Do you have to pre-order certain games or will any of those pre-order cards work?


The ad doesn't say so, but the worker insisted it be one pictured in the ad (GTA V, Battlefield 4, Madden 25, ACIV). That's fine with me, I'm not going to pick it up.

i have done PM and the preorder card thing successfully before. but last time when they had the $10 off disney games with preorder I got some denial based on no double dipping. I think I was successful one out of 3 tries. getting JD4 for 99 cents may raise some suspicions so I think i will try the higher price games. good luck!


Yeah, I may have been lucky, and it helped that I had other things to buy. I think I'll try Dead Space 3 at another Target but there will be better luck with the higher price titles I'm sure, since the price disparity won't be so shocking.

Do you have to print out the price from Amazon, or do you just tell them that it is that price and then they will match it? I'm sure $1 of fun can easily be had from Just Dance 4, thanks OP!

you know what? the reason we created GAMEstop in the first place was to serve GAMErs. if we didnt want to serve GAMErs we would have called it wal mart stop and sold baby items and food and a small selection of overpriced gaming software for high prices. and not thea bility to sell crappy old games no one wants anymore.

Usually, yes. I've done it in the past and you show them your phone with the price match and they go "Ok, great!", and then they proceed to verify on their customer service iPad. I understand this (cached webpages, photoshop), but every time they look it up they screw up.

Thankfully though, they just looked at my phone and adjusted it this time.

Phone or printout works
