Is Starcraft II sold out?

It doesn't appear on the website. (I was going to try to PM at Best Buy)

You have to look it up as Starcraft ii, not numerical but two ii, I just checked and the game is back on stock on toysrus.com

Success. Went to my toy r us and got BF3 for 10 and went to BB next door and got Diablo 3 price matched for 10 bucks. Salinas,CA

On a Side note. The employee I talked to at Toys r us was putting out Dishonored for PS3 early ( since it comes out Oct 9th), so if anyone wants that it fair game.

Thank you. I tried 17 different ways last night, even just 'starcraft' and nothing worked. Went to BB and got Diablo 3, they refused to do Starcraft 2 because it didn't exist online. They even google'd "toys r us starcraft 2" and it has a page that doesn't load.

I noticed this last night, these do not require any time of manager override, even with a huge $50 discount per item.

Where do you go? Customer Service counter? Video Game Dept rep? or straight to the cashier? I'd rather go to the correct person and get as few people involved as possible.

I'm going to try this today at my BB for Skyrim. My TRU only had Batman:AC and AC:R in stock @ $10.

I guess some folks just scared. Again, price matching used to be easy. Now days the hunt done got tougher. Maybe I'm thinking of when Circuit City was alive.

Fry's almost did all three but then she was like well, this is in stores so I'll have to call about Skyrim and Diablo 3. No go in the end. Starcraft 2 was going down but then she made it seem like they were a online only shop and wanted to add shipping on to the deal. Fuck that. Sure it would have only been $15, but Fuck that.

Starcraft 2 should be more legitimate at Best Buy though. I didn't try it. It being order-able online as well as in stores make it look clean.
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Went to the CS counter. They checked tru.com and all went well, no override needed.

Success! Took quite a while of the manager calling corporate to see if it really was an in-store deal, but it worked. A friend offered to pay me $15 for it since he's been too busy to get to Walmart, so looks like I just got it for $5.

At the BB I went to I took it straight to checkout and he did Diablo 3 no problem. Then I went right back around with the Starcraft 2 after I knew this guy wasn't going to ask questions. I was worried if I took them both at the same time it might not work.

Yup, that's the one! The guy working there had to go in a back room and bring out a shopping cart with the clearance PC games in it. Not sure why he didn't just leave it out, but he must have wheeled it back into hiding.

Wait, do you mean Mishawaka? Cause I was just there an hour ago and there was nothing.

Went to my local TRU and picked up Battlefield 3 and Diablo Battlechest for $9.99 each. They were located in a large bin with a bunch more clearance games.

I then went to Best Buy and price matched Diablo III and Skyrim. I just showed the cashier a printed pages from the TRU website and I also showed her the items on my phone from TRU.com. Had to get a manager override but all worked well!

Just went to BB to PM for diablo 3 and battlefield 3. I successfully found D3 but I didnt see a BF3. I asked one of the employees if they had any copies in the back that I could price match and sure enough he comes back with a copy... of the premium edition. So I made out with it pretty well, and got the premium edition of bf3 for 10$

Went to my local Best Buy with a print out of the Skyrim page. I decided that I would also want a Diablo 3...so they had to go look it up. After about half an hour of waiting, they finally told me that they couldn't price match because my TRU had none in stock. I know that they have the right to do that, but did they really have to make me wait so long? -.- Plus, I think the one guy who was working there was about to PM Skyrim, no questions asked, but the Diablo 3 made them go to their excuse list. Maybe I'll try another BB XD

Just got back from best buy. Picked up skyrim with the price match with Toys r us website on my phone. The manager had to do an override for the pm but he didn't even care. The girl couldn't believe I got it for that price though. So happy hunting friends.

Just got back from BB, got Skyrim pricematched at $10 by showing them the online ad and going to the Customer Service desk.

I think the best way to go about it is to do only 1 or 2 games at a time.

Northern CO, no luck. :-(

BB wouldn't price match because our TRU relocated and didn't carry PC titles. :-(
