Isn't this $19.99 at any Best Buy?

I got it at Best Buy during the buy-2-get-1-free sale several weeks ago, and while the shelf tag said $19.99, it rang up in the system at $29.99. They gave it to me for the $19.99 price, but immediately took the shelf tag down.

I would buy this, but I have the DS fat and it's depressing to play.

Dang! I posted the same thing here, but you beat me by a couple of minutes.

Anyway, the only thing my post really adds is that the game also dropped to $19.99 Gamestop, in case that's more convenient to some folks.

I think this is a universal price drop. Gamestop now has it for the same price, and $17.99 used. Of course with tax, but if you can find a used copy and another game you want, the current coupon would be the bomb (25% off 2 to 4 used games + 10% Edge)

Buy it even if you don't want to play it so I can play the sequel one day.

And, from that standpoint, buy it new. The publisher doesn't see used sales, and therefore doesn't count them in their numbers. That $2 extra spent now could have a very real impact on whether we see the sequel.

It just is. It's all scratched up (not the screen), it's not very bright, and it's huge.

For anybody on the fence about this, it's a great game. Especially if you grew up playing NES; the geek jokes are hilarious.

Yeah, it was a fantastic price with the 25%+EDGE. Found a couple used ones around me. One for me, and one for a friends upcoming bday. :bouncy::bouncy::bouncy:

Lucky! There is one place semi-near me that is listing it, but otherwise nothing close. Depending on our plans tonight I might have to go give it a shot, but if so I'm going to call and ask if they have it with case and manual before I bother.

Was waiting for this drop, hoping to maybe get it in my Gold Box although my luck is pretty bad. I do like the idea of not giving Gamestop money on this one.

Yeah, I was surprised I could even find one used, but two? I normally have no luck at all at finding rare used games at GS. Must be my lucky day. :bouncy::bouncy::bouncy:

This is an awesome game. It made me feel like a kid again. While playing it, I was even looking forward to the "new issues" of the fictional in-game magazine.

I never heard of this game before this thread, but will have to check it out. Seems like something I would like. And I never buy used. :)
