anyone manage to get in on the nintendo ds $100 deal?

i tried menlo park (sold out), clark (spent an hour trying to call random people, said come back tomorrow), route 22 union (just said no and wouldn't even call anybody or ask anyone)

so, anyone know if the one in milltown/east brunswick will honor it, or anything in that area? Thanks!


ill check the bwater target for ya. i have to stop by there to get the family guy dvds.

Just joined the board, been looking for gamers in the somerville/bridgewater area.

As for the Nintendo DS $99 deal, I didn't bother checking Target yet, but I did print out the online ad and had the Circuit City off Rt. 28 do a 110% price match. Manager didn't bat an eye (of course I was also buying Mario Kart and Advance Wars, but hey...)

I just used the Target print out at Circuit City by the Somerville circle too. I got a Nintendo DS for $96.99. Although my experience wasn't as easy as yours, the cashier was very pleasant and I eventually got it after he couldn't find a Nintendo DS on Target online.

I don't know about my experience being easy - I left out the part where the first DS I got had a dead pixel on both the top and bottom screen:) I went back during lunch the next day and they exchanged it with no problem, and this one works just fine.

And OMG, there's gamers in Somerville? Where has everyone been hiding?

Well the DS I picked up is a gift so I won't know about any pixel problem until after Xmas. Are dead pixels a common problem with the DS? And is there a quick way to tell?

I wouldn't call dead pixels "common," per se, but they are inherent to any type of LCD technology; a certain % of any pixels will end up dead, depending on manufacturing methodologies. Some companies often refuse to exchange unless a certain number of pixels are dead (there was a big issue with Sony originally not touching PSPs with less than 3 dead ones), but Nintendo is honoring *any* dead pixels if a retailer refuses.

As for the DS, if you can manage not to mangle the end of the box by opening it, the unit typically comes with some battery charge remaining - fire it up and get a game in it if possible, then repackage it. Personally, I think the risk of it looking semi-opened outweighs the risk of having to return it post-Christmas and taking it away from whomever received it.

Also, dead pixels are most easily seen when the screen is displaying black, hence the recommendation to use an actual game - the built-in startup goes stark white upon boot and isn't of much help.

Hey everyone,

I thought I'd post this here for us NJ'ers. If you can get to the TRU off 202/206 in Somerville/Raritan, go quickly.

They have two bins at the register with multiple copies of a lot of whats in the OP.

Off hand I remember multiples of Rumble Roses, Transformers, Pikmin 2 (in the GC aisle), Fight Night 2 (these are in the display behind the counter), Klonoa 2, F Zero (or whatever its called for GBA), Tron 2 (GBA), Silent Hill 4, & Wrestlemania 21.

Hope this helps someone! :D

Doom 3 (Xbox)
Ace Combat 5 (PS2)
Dead or Alive: Ultimate (Xbox)
Pikmin 2 (GameCube)

There are a ton more of these games and many more left at TRU. I got all the games that I wanted except DDS and Tekken 5

Did you happen to notice if they had any of the GBA games (like Shaman King 2, Racing Gears Advance, Metal Slug Advance, etc.)? I picked up my games at the TRU in Seacaucus earlier this week but they had none of those GBA games.

Interesting. They actually did have a few copies of SH4 for both PS2 and Xbox when I was there a few days ago. Guess someone bought them. Didn't see the copy of Haunting Ground though.
