Is there not a "Ship to Store" option on this? Was so close to getting Midway Arcade Origins and Saints Row The Third, but shipping is gonna push it out of my price range.

Yeah there should be. It takes forever though, both for them to actually ship the item, then for an employee to actually find it and get it to you when you get there.

I got excited when I saw this:
http://www.walmart.c...Bundle/22152321
but it won't let me add Uncharted 3 even though it is pictured! And they aren't sold out as you can still buy Uncharted 3 by itself. Am I missing something or is Wal-Mart just being really lame? Is there any way I can get Uncharted 3 with this deal?

It's amazing that they have games like Saint's Row The Third and Final Fantasy XIII-2 in there with games like NBA 2K7 and Band Hero.

I don't know what the deal is with the "free headset". When I select the bundle is comes out to $75. That would imply that any of those games are $75. Am I missing something?

Walmart only allocates a certain quantity of each game for the bundle. Uncharted 3 already was purchased in that quantity, so it's no longer available as part of the deal.

"Free" is a flexible term... still seems like a moderately decent deal, but would be a lot more appealing at $60 (thus, MSRP for the game and "free" for the headset, as they are trying to claim).

Same here (same games even!)

If there is a store pickup option, I'm not seeing it. Guess I'll go save money and live better someplace else.

This is how I understood it and I would have jumped on it if this were the way things were going (even though I already have a better gaming headset and most of those games. Damn deals!).

Well damn. I figured the whole point of these bundles must have been to move stock on older games, but I guess not :roll:.
Thanks for letting me know though. Any chance that they'll allocate more copies of the game to the bundle?

They have in the past, but it can take weeks or even months for that to happen.

No, unless they changed their policy recently, Walmart is one of the few stores that refuses to price match their own website. I hope they lose a lot of business to Target and Best Buy.

Good to see someone else is doing an Army of Two promotion. I really wish it was included in Best Buy's deal, but at least I now have a choice for $20 credit between Wal-Mart and Amazon.

Considering its bundling, I really doubt it.

You would think so wouldn't you? But no, you have no chance in hell. Wal-Mart is very strict about that, they will not price match anything from any website, including their own.

In addition, if you order something from their website and have it shipped to you and it is damaged, they won't replace it for you even if they have ample stock. I have been able to bitch enough to get a refund when I recieved a BTTF Blu Ray trilogy with loose/scratched up discs, but it took a lot of doing and an arguement with the manager to make it happen. However, even though they had 10 copies sitting on the shelf, they refused to let me have an exchange.

Overall Wal-Mart is just horrible, I never buy anything from them anymore besides groceries (for convienence, they are 5 minutes away and the next closest grocery store is over 25 minutes away) and an occasional T-Shirt or hat. I have only used their website for an order once since the incedent I mentioned above as well. I would have been willing to risk it for $15 Uncharted 3 but apparently that's out of the question now :(

Exactly what I was thinking. No other game on the list is more expensive on Amazon except SR3. I'm sure if you could buy doubles SR3 would have been long gone by now.

Shipping, tax and lack of selection kill it for me. Already 1000/1000 SR3 and all the DLC

Yeeeeeahhhh...

I can't speak for ignorant Service Desk associates, their CSMs, or a-hole Asst Managers, but as a WM grunt myself I can tell you that the policy is that, as long as the UPCs on dot-com items are 100% identical and you have your Order information (not just a shipping form) WM is allowed to give you an exchange as if it was any item sold off the shelf.

If you're just yet-another dipwad, sitting there screaming at the Service Desk drone that you want to violate copyright regulations (and corporate policy) and demanding that you want your money back on media that's been opened, well that's your own fault.

Not to mention, if you really had to, you could have always gotten an RMA through the site with free shipping back on most items, and gotten an exchange or your money back. First time ordering on WM.com... or just any site, ever?

Again, individually we've all had a horrible buying experience somewhere, and I can't speak for your store specifically, but this is all standard policy. I'm not only (begrudgingly) a WM drone, but I've also returned 2 air-conditioners, a drill set, and exchanged a flashdrive through WM.com & dot-com-to-the-store. YEMV = Your Experience May Vary

Can you mix systems? For example, if I wanted Midway Origins for both 360 and Ps3?

I like that the first page of the $10 & Under bargain bin promo is full of food items like M&Ms and popcorn --and that there's no way to sort it by platform Way to be, WM, way to be. :roll:

You can sort by platform on the left side, below the departments.
