the reason these things never go through are the people that buy 4. that ruins everything. they know something is wrong so they cancel on everyone

id have to agree iggypop its not enough that you can get a great deal like this people have to go and order a slew of copies and set off all kinds of red flags sometimes its not about reselling something its just about taking advantage of a good deal

I'm with everyone that it's gonna get canceled but hell, it's worth a shot.

they should just cancel the people who ordered a whole bunch of them its only fair let the people who played by the rules get it for that price teach the others a lesson

In for a cancelled order. I wanted to pick up the first one, just not for $30. I'll be really jazzed if they honor this (which they won't).

I was already planning on getting this, but if by some miracle I can, that'd be great.

Wow I guess it is worth a shot. I will get two copies and see what happens.

Oh and what is the thing about ordering these games through amazon? Can someone please clarify the deal on that?

l don't think it's wrong to ask a company to stand by it's ads, so long as you were making the purchase in 'good faith' meaning for yourself or family. Plus a reasonable number 1 or 2, not 10 -20, who would ever do that.

l actually like the Skate series, l'm in no way a 'skater' but the controls for Skate (which some gave me a free 360 version) were so easy, made the game fun.

And l'd pick up Skate 2 @ $20, which is a 'Reasonable' price for a game. Affordable by many more than the outrageous $50-$70, they're asking. People are getting sick of paying a premium price for a game to only get it home to find it sucks, and a week later it's dropped to $20-$30 like a rock. Gamestores and companies are starting to become the 'Car Deajler's & Manufactures' of the entertaiment world

Worth a shot. Don't have a PS3, but if it does go through I can resell and make a solid $20-$25 on this deal.

Only picked up one though. I'm not going to be a greedy bitch. People who order more than one copy are the ones ruining things like this.

I dont really see the point getting onto people who ordered 3+ copies. The deal already died once it hit any forums. Just waiting for the inevitable cancellation email now.

I love these price mistakes. Such a small chance they go through but worth a shot.

I bought 56.

Actually, just one. It seemed fun. :) Now I can join the class action lawsuit Romis will file when they cancel our orders. :)

Costs a lot of money to make games, Romis, and Sony and Microsoft all take their cuts. Video games are one of the few things that have stayed steady, or even dropped in price, despite inflation. Nearly everything else has increased in price along with inflation, but games haven't; in some cases, they've actually decreased in price (due to disc-based media being cheaper than cartridges). I know, I repeated myself, but I think it's a fact fun enough to underscore!

Don't get me wrong; I hate paying $60 for games (which is why I never do), and I wish all the in-game ads they were doing would lower the cost rather than just pad the publishers' pockets and supposedly defer development costs and make "better" games possible, but the fact of the matter is that there are a lot of hands in the cookie jar, and to say $50-60 is unreasonable and $20 is better, well... If we want to go back to PSOne-era games, $20 might be reasonable. (And I'd be all for it. Maybe then we'd focus on the game instead of pretty pictures and gimmicks.)

Actually, you have to use www.target.com, and when you're checking out, it'll ask if you want to log in. On the login screen, you can use Amazon.com login info rather than Target.com.

Hopefully that makes sense. I just did it, so...

I don't understand why they haven't corrected it or taken the page down, it's been listed for over 24 hours.

x-blades was listed for a day or two before they realized, not even gonna waste my time trying to buy. This is the third (that I know of) that target has mispriced a presale that is months away from release.
