Looks like Amazon is going for the mainstream market yet again (because they sell). I haven't seen a quality Wii title on Goldbox for hella long.
Here are my guesses..

Deal of the Day:
Walk It Out

6am: Go behind closed doors and into the recording studio with rock legends.
Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock (game only)

9am: Join your favorite Toy Story characters in the shooting gallery.
Toy Story Mania!

12pm: Lose weight, win challenges and stay above the yellow line.
The Biggest Loser

3pm: “You Belong With Wii"
Band Hero (Super Bundle please!)

5pm: Fitness has never been this personalized or this much fun!
Wii Fit Plus (Balance Board bundle please!)

7pm: Charge 4 Wii Remotes with one dock.
Wii Charge Station Quad (Nyko)

8pm: Get ready to get active.
EA Sports Active

If I had a Wii, I might buy Walk It Out solely for the novelty...

Wow, what a disappointment.

If they wanted to be casual, why not WSR or Wii Fit Plus at the least?

The Biggest Loser is dropping in price? That's one more I can take off the wish list.

As always with the wii, another disappointing day of lightning deals. Disappointing for me anyway. I fully understand why Amazon is pushing this stuff.

As for the return fraud debate, there is no debate. I've learned that people will justify it however they want. Especially those too stupid to understand business and retail 101. But I do like to call out assholes whenever I can. :)

And I feel sorry for miserable douchebags like you that face life with the constant "glass is half-empty" approach. Enjoy growing old alone with your video games.



wow. smacked down by Vince McMahon!

Amazon's going to have to downgrade to a Silver Box when they realize nobody's going to buy these games.

God, you've got to be kidding. >_>; I think Amazon is purposefully stocking this event with... Like... 10 games a piece. I'm finding it REALLY hard to believe 34% of Toy Story is claimed in five minutes... T_T;

What's so hard to believe? Parents are picking up these things for their kids.

I just feel like the same parents who hadn't gotten this game for their kids for Christmas would have waited for a cheaper price point than this. It's inevitably bargain bin material.

Toy Story is actually kinda fun... a bit spammy but some of the objectives to unlock more games is impossible with just one person.

With the included 3D glasses, it's fun. gives you a nice headache after an hour.

I've actually been waiting for Rock Band Beatles and Band Hero for Wii to get sub-$30. I missed the Rock Band at Old Navy thing a couple months back, as they didn't have any copies of Beatles left at the one I went to.

But otherwise, pretty disappointing day. So much fitness crap, and I'm not sure which charger set that is, but most of the ones on Amazon have horrible reviews because they are crap. Seems almost every non-Nintendo accessory is crap, and makes me wonder why they didn't just design rechargeable wiimotes to start with. Oh well.

I hope they start a PS3 Gold Box or Xbox Gold Box event soon.

You would think this game would be better suited to play on a more powerful console, as it is just another clone Wii game, with crappier than should be graphics for such a great movie.

Toy Story is a kids movie. Frankly, I think it's on the console that best caters to that demographic.

:rofl:

:rofl:

It's a fucking cartoon... ?

And no, it cannot play on a "more powerful console" because you're stuck with shit controllers then. The infrared of the wiimotes play better than dual stick on anything else.


unless you're being totally sarcastic... then I failed. :booty:
