Don't know how Newegg keeps doing these great deals. Saw Kirby Dream Collection for pre-order $39.99. Free shipping too. Great deal seeing as though Amazon will not be selling it and $50 everywhere else. No coupon code needed as well.

edit:

As Sway has pointed out it seems that this is MSRP. I personally still think it is a good deal as Newegg doesn't charge tax for most and shipping is free.

Oooh, so Amazon won't be carrying it? I wonder if I should bite. I don't recall there being much of a discount on the Mario collection.

Didn't know about Gamestop. I just know it is $50 at Best Buy and thought this was better.

Is it a Limited release like Mario All Stars?

Thanks OP. Will buy from GS when it comes out. Didn't know about this before and seeing Kirby 64 (my favorite in the series) made this an insta buy.

I was about to go buy a wii for this game until I saw what games came with it. For some reason I thought it contained all/alot of kirby games.

Close call for my wallet

Other than Best Buy, where else is it $50? As you've stated, it's $40 at Newegg. It's also at GameStop, Target, and goHastings (probably other places I don't know about atm). I'd guess that is the MSRP and Best Buy hasn't updated their price yet.

Pretty sure it's another soft box, so I don't think I'd risk buying it from an on-line retailer, especially one like NewEgg that uses bubble pouches for most items.

I wouldn't recommend buying this from newegg. They will ship it in a padded envelope, and the box will be screwed up. Gamestop.com usually ships in boxes for these types of things, though, so they are a safe bet.

Did we confirm $39.99 is the MSRP for the Kirby collection? Wasn't Mario All Stars Wii $29.99 MSRP?

Yeah 40 is the msrp. Played this at SDCC. way more polished than the Mario set.

It was, but this one has a bit more stuff. All Stars was just a port of the SNES that had the 3 games plus the Lost levels. This has 6 full games plus new challenge levels so it makes sense that it would be a bit more

And yeah, $39.99 is the MSRP. Both Gamestop and Newegg have it at that and it doesn't indicate it's a sale. usually Gamestop would have the MSARP crossed out and then the price next to it or something to indicate the deal.

My weak Google skills show that a MSRP was never revealed but since we have four retailers selling it for $40 and one for $50, I think $40 would be an educated guess. We're also less than a month from release.

Also, cross posting from the Kirby 20th Anniversary Special Collection (Wii) thread:

Kirby's Dream Collection Special Edition

Kirby's Dream Land (3DS, $3.99)
Kirby's Adventure (Wii, 500 points;3DS 3D Classics version is also available for $6.99)
Kirby’s Dream Land 2 (not available for purchase?)
Kirby Super Star (Wii, 800 points; Kirby SuperStar Ultra DS remake is also available)
Kirby’s Dream Land 3 (Wii, 800 points)
Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (Wii, 1000 points)

So take the dollar equivalent of the Wii download games and it'll cost $35. Adventure Land 2 isn't available but let's say that it would have cost $3.99 like Dream Land for the 3DS and the retail cost would add up to $39.The collection also includes brand new challenge stages, the 20th anniverfsay soundtrack with 45 tracks, an interactive timeline and a 48 page booklet. Another plus for some is having all the content on disc instead of digital content.


I forgot that many of us buy our XBLA/PSN/Nintendo currencies at a discount. I'd guess that discount would average around 25%. So either it's paying ~$30 for Nintendo points to get all but Adventure Land 2 for your Wii/3DS or $40 for six games for your Wii with the additional benefits I stated in the cross post.

Yeah, I think I'm done with Newegg when it comes to CEs/LEs/etc. Amazon is shipping a lot of items in bubble mailers too but they have plenty of warehouses near me so they rarely arrive damaged. And with GS, you can always exchange in store.

This is not a deal, this msrp. Even Gamestop is selling it at this price, and you can pre-order then pick it up in-store and not risk damage during shipping. Nice try OP.

You're assuming I'm offended to the very core, I'm just telling it like it is. $39.99 is MSRP for this title. Gamestop reflects this as well as many other stores. And if I had my choice, I would order locally to ensure no damage was made to my item during shipment. Sorry if you take um bridge to anything I have to say, but it's only facts and I feel I've portrayed my point in a non-hostile manner.

I think you mean "umbrage"? Also, "Nice try OP". That doesn't sound snarky at all. How dare he make this thread. This is MSRP. Nice try OP! lol

Well, as long as you concede you look like the immature one in this instance, I think we're done here. Moving on.

You complain about a thread and laughably misspell a word trying to sound smart, and I have somehow become immature, you say? You, sir, have brightened my day with your silly antics. <3

Right, so, in summary, there is no deal here, this is MSRP and can be better off purchased in-store to avoid shipping damage. Probably the third time I've said it, but some of you seem a little slow on the uptake.
