great thanks to the greedy people who ordered more than 2 target will cancel it. it might have passed if people were not greedy.

it's not cause of greedy people, read my post #63, I've personally ordered three titles from target that were price mistakes, don't get excited guys I'm just letting you know. Being let down is not the best feeling.

whats going to be funny is when they ship all the hoarders the original Skate on Dec 8 and charge their cards $20 ea.

I understand what you are saying, but it is a win-win situation either way. 1.)Target can honor the ad and people can get a great deal, or
2.)they cancel our order without charging us, and might even give gift-cards/store credit.

I wish I can gamble in Las Vegas with those odds. I will not be upset with whatever happens.

Placed an order for one just for the hell of it. Also, I doubt they can just send you the original Skate. Pretty sure that would fall under false advertising that would open them up for legal trouble, since the page clearly states the game is Skate 2.

Just like posting the wrong price, they can post the wrong picture and not have legal trouble. False Advertising has to have the company KNOW that they are doing wrong.
However, there is no reason for shipping Skate (1) on Dec 9 when it is out. Their website is indicating this is a preorder - which Skate is clearly not. I ordered one as well, but just like many other posters have got the "sorry" e-mail when the mistake was made.

The title of the page and the pic is skate two, but if you click "More Info" it says..."Release Date: 3/15/2006"

Unless we are in a time machine...

I loved the first Skate so I figured it was worth a try. I realize the last two pricing errors were cancelled but it's always worth a shot.
So Cheap, I once used a GGC to pay attention.

I doubt this price mistake will last until january, so either they fix it and honor ours or they fix it and cancel everyone.

Why do these pointless topic keep getting made. This is clearly a price mistake just like X-blades and Heist. They will get canceled and nothing will be given out. This topic should be closed.

I'm really hoping it gets canceled, and I don't end up with another copy of Skate 1.
