It seems that several targets have had pricing errors with Donkey Konga 2, as well as Pikmin 2. It also seems that these pricing errors are exclusive to targets that have recently opened, as I have not seen it for this price anywhere else.

Damn... I wish I could get DK2 w/ bongos for $15. Or a new, fresh copy of Pikmin 2 for $15.

Same here. But, is it JUST for recently opened Targets, or can it also apply to older ones?

As far as I can tell it's just newly opened Targets. I was able to find both of these at a target that opened on the 17th, but also price checked at the other Target less than 10 minutes away and both were full price.

did it have the correct name on the tag ? The DK2 and Pikmin 2 had their names on the tag that was showing with the lower price and it scanned that price in the system. Going back this morning to see if anything else might be offset.

Throw down on them. Any time I've found games at Target that were in the wrong place behind the glass shelf, I've managed to get the cheaper price. It might have just been luck though.

Resident Evil: Outbreak file 1 & 2 is really bad game. Thought it worth $10 or less. I rather wait for Resident Evil 4 w/ Extra (PS2) coming soon this fall.

Atleast at the target I went to, the price sticker underneath the game (both Pikmin 2 and DK 2) said "GC Set" with the game title in smaller letters, and were both marked $14.99. I don't know if that might help someone in finding it, but I just remembered that detail.

I can confirm this deal.

I was just at the newly opened Target in Grand Rapids, MI and they had Donkey Konga 2 (with bongos) and Pikman 2 marked at $14.99. Had the same "GC Set" tag on DK2 that dayglo mentioned too.

The sweet thing is that there was a "$5 off any $25 purchase" Target Coupon in the Sunday paper, so I scored both games for $25 total!

There is a Target opening up soon near me. When it opens, I'll have to check it out. There is another one thath recently opened, but it's kinda far. Not worth the trip out there I don't think.

Almost worth a road trip. The thing is, I don't want either game that badly, but it's such a bargain.
