Ugh. I already have Kingdom Hearts. I would get Lego Batman, but I would still need one more game. I wish they offered Rhythm Thief.

Hm. Is there a limit on one Kingdom Hearts game per transaction? I might tell a friend that we should both go and pitch in $20.

Good deal, I bought Kingdoms Hearts from Deepdiscount and they never shipped me the game from 8/1 around the same price.

$10 says the angry birds games end up rare because nobody buys them, rofl

$10 says that soccer moms and grandparents buy it for younger kids and it's a success. Seriously, this game was pretty much made because of how popular Angry Birds is- and it definitely isn't aimed at gamers. Younger kids are going to see it and beg their parents to get it for them.

Might be in for Kingdom Hearts 3D and Lego Batman 2. Not a bad deal.

That's actually what I'm looking to do as well. Hopefully someone can shed some further light on it.

I think I'll go that route. It's about as much as you'd make reselling the second one after ebay fees and such. Pretty much a $10 copy of DDD.


Your post made me cringe because I suddenly realized why they named it Dream Drop Distance.

Dream Drop Distance = DDD = three Ds = 3DS

Reminds me of all the early DS games that had DS acronyms in the subtitle (Advance Wars: Dual Strike, Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow, Resident Evil: Deadly Silence...).

But back on topic, I might pick up two Dream Drop Distances too. Angry Birds is tempting...I just don't see any reason to buy it on the 3DS when I can download it on my phone for a few bucks.

TRU deals haven't had limits on titles before so I'd bet on the answer being no.

Now playing:

:ps4: Mortal Kombat X, The Last of Us: Remastered

:xb1: Ori and the Blind Forest

Ahhhh yeah. Now I just have to hope they don't all disappear before I can make it down there. Thanks.

Did TRU do away with physical ads? I remember hunting for one a while back to PM something and the CSR said there ads were only digital now. Would like to PM this at BB and not have to spend actual cash.

If nobody bought them, how would that make them rare? That would mean there would be tons of them on the shelf, which would be very much the opposite of rare.

Depends on how you look at it:

More consumers = more copies available floating around.

Less consumers = more destroyed copies means less of a print.

But I can see your stand point as well.

Less consumers = readily available to purchase retail.

More consumers = Hard to find retail.

I assume his point was from a collector's stand point.

I believe Best Buy can (and do) look it up on their PCs. I wish Target would do that :-(

Might get Fifa with the $15 GC. I already have a $20 GC from them and I am trying to get ready for the B2G1 free deal they have every October. Then that will be it for me. November will be real rough. With Halo, Ops and the Wii coming out back to back, I will be pretty busy the rest of the yr.

Perfect. I've got some Rewards $5 coupons to use before the end of October. Looks like KH and Batman for $25 AC.
If I thought I needed to get out in the sunshine I'd play Boktai.

YMMV. You shouldn't need it, as BB has the ability (in the customer service area) to go online and check out their site. But I've been to a few BB's where the manager flat-out refused a pricematch without a physical ad.

Nope. It's the same as the DS version- just has slightly improved graphics. Same thing on the Vita. It's bullshit- especially when the PSP handled console ports of most of the Lego games (later ones were ported DS versions). Hell, the Wii has a version practically the same as the HD consoles- they could have easily put that on the 3DS and Vita, and they're both more capable than that.

You shouldn't, they just typically need to confirm the sale (be it online, calling the store, etc.)

The real YMMV will be then actually honoring the deal as Best Buy technically doesn't honor "buy 2 for $40" type of "package' deals. I'm hoping I can convince a Best Buy near me to do it though, couple of games worth having in the $20 range if I'm paying credit, nothing that strikes me as must buy if I'm spending cash.

Do not laugh... I'm actually looking for a deal on Angry Bird trilogy and TRU is the only place sort of have a deal (two for $40). I didn't know there's a PS3 version as well, $40!!!! Crazy... I have to buy the 3DS version, it's a birthday gift.

u can find the actual ad on TRU's site worse case print the ad out right at BB.

going by the previous 2 for $60 thread it's not that ymmv at all. Now being able to score any titles even ones not in the ad that's ymmv based on ur skill level & how much u spend.
