Pretty nice deal on Vita, but not low enough for me.

Yes the crappy deal about the $20 gift card is a few of those games including ac:r and mw3 are $39.99 and lower now. Might as well get them now if you're considering the gift card then it's money in the bank, not in target.

Ahh, just picked up the GTA Episodes from Liberty City for $10 from GoHastings. Oh well, GTA4 vanilla is the most boring GTA ever, so I don't need that anyway, and wouldn't want to spend $10 extra on it.

Do you need GTA IV to play the DLC? or can i buy the DLC disc or on XBLA and play them without owning GTAIV?

Beat GTA IV and have no interest in buying or playing it again but i hear great things about the 2 DLC.

I also want to add that AC3 Target pre-order comes with exclusive content, as for what that is I have no idea. It just says Target Pre-order exclusive content on the $1 pre-order card.

Lame no Yakuza deal. Now the coupon in the book has gone to waste.

I got a copy for $10...It requires manager override.


It's worth a try, if I can get Darksiders II for $10... I'll give it a shot tomorrow. [EDIT: Nope, didn't work. They said they don't honor/respect/validate twitter prices.]

Not sure if you knew, but by doing the Target deal you can get it for $9.99 like I did :)


Um... what is this Target deal of which you speak? I'd get L.A. Noire if the price for the complete edition was down to $10... ;)

No luck at Best Buy :-(

there's still a chance for an unadvertised sale

I'd get L.A. Noire if the price for the complete edition was down to $10... ;)

The MSRP for complete is $30, vanilla is $20, $18 used so depending on used deals you could score the vanilla under $10 & decided on if the DLC is warranted later.

May be time to finally bite on some Wii games. Paper Mario, Mario Galaxy, Twilight Princess, and hmmm dunno what else...I doubt I'd play much of the Mario sports games. Wish Mario Kart was part of this.

Man. I've been sitting on a $20 gift card for a while. They need to have something worth buying.

BF3 and MW3 were both 30 last week without the need to buy 2. Maybe SCV?

SCV is $45 via "Temporary Price Cut" at Target. With the last day of the trade-in special it would be $25.

Yeah forgot about that, too bad UC3, ACR and SCV were cleared out instantly after the promo started.

Wow I wish the UMvC3 and MLB12 deals were part of the Trade 2 for $20 off....both of those for $10 each would be awesome.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

I was thinking a return/rebuy but the coupon makes each game $20 so it would be less than the $29.99 price.

What if I've already made the purchase at Target?
No problem. Within seven days of purchase, bring your Target receipt and the competitor 's current printed ad. We will reimburse the savings to you.

Target Coupons:
Target coupons will be applied before the price match is made. If the competitor price is still lower than the price after the Target coupon has been deducted, the ad match can be adjusted to match the competitor's price.

I still think it could work. The price would be $30 and the coupon works on $30 games making them $10. The issue is having Target allow it. I don't think it's worth the work. Those games will be cheaper eventually anyway.

I think a price match would work even with the coupon. I think I recall people buying those Disney movies with coupons and then price matching after buying them. Not bad if you're willing to risk a couple cheap used games but no guarantees

I just bought UMVC3 on Tuesday with that $20 coupon. Would be nice to get it for $10.
