Buy 2 get the third free on select Gamecube Player's Choice Titles(Luigi's Mansion, Pikmin, Super Mario Sunshine, Super Smash Brothers, Starfox, Metroid Prime). I think those are all the titles, but there may be more listed.

Playstation 2 Soul Calibur 2 $10 off(sale $29.99 reg $39.99). May be for all 3 systems on sale, only PS2 listed.

Starfox is a crappy game. It to slow paced but none the less think I'll finally pick up Luigis Mansion and SSB.

:evil: BAH! I just got Luigi's Mansion last week. Do you know if Sonic Adventure 2 is on the list? Or Pac Man? Or SpiderMan?

Edit: Just checked the list. Cool! I'm doing some major shopping.

Nope, it is only select games listed. Also as far as I know there are no subsituitons yet. The Pokemon Controller is a Inteck Mini controller that has nothing to do with Pokemon. It is clear (see thru) and has orange and gold. Not that bad if you need a spare.

Also a heads up, PGR2 is dropping in price like after this add. So you can basically get PGR2 and a Racing Wheel (they suck anyway) for $30. Just ask a manager if the price drops within a few weeks if you can come back and get the difference. I believe they do that for at least 2 weeks.

Damn, that sounds like a great deal. If I still had the cash, I'd be all over Metroid Prime, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Animal Crossing.

Of course, I don't own a Cube, so...

Yes, its only select Players Choice Titles. Right now I think its only those I listed(stores have been getting tons of those Players Choice games in stock the past week, the only one I'm surprised wasn't listed is Monkey Ball as stores are swamped with those).

Also, if you do buy PGR2 and the wheel deal and want to get the difference back when PGR2s price drops, you could end up getting screwed. Some stores can be jerks about giving back the difference saying that it's part of a promotion, so in order to get the difference back for PGR2 they may refund the wheel and PGR2, then rering everything up, charging regular price for the wheel and the new price for PGR2. It all depends on who you talk to, so YMMV on that.

Edit: Also, it's policy if the price drops within 30 days after you purchased the item, you can get the price difference back, but for promotions they usually make you return all items and rering them up.

There's also a GBA SP Value pack listed for around $130 I believe.


Is this a GBA SP system + accessories / games?

If it's just one of those gigantic accessory packs, I think Value pack is a bit of a misnomer.

what games would you guys recommend?

I know I will for sure get Super Smash Bros & Super Monkey Ball but I don't know what the third should be. I am debating between Pikmin and Animal Crossing. I don't know much about either but I hear they are good.

EDIT: will this sale be available online? Or is it just B&M. And does anyone have a copy of the ad?

That's an awesome deal on the GC games. Too bad I already have all of them except Luigi's mansion.
