Does anyone know if Target does price matches for games? I'm planning on getting a 3DS from Target on Sunday, and would rather buy Pokemon and Luigi's Mansion there if they price match than to drive to K-Mart and buy it.

They should, they're matching games from BB for the B2G1 that's going on this week.

You know what would push digital sales? Moving to an account based system so we don't hear stories about people losing hundreds of dollars of games when their system goes haywire.

If your systems breaks can send it to Nintendo. They will either fix it or move your files over for you.

Nintendo has excellent customer service. Hell they sometimes will even fix systems outside of their warranty.

Maybe its not ideal, but its not like you are totally fucked.

Regardless it's still a terrible system.

I can't think of one other service that sells downloadable content that doesn't have an account system other than Nintendo.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

It's like Nintendo's a racoon wearing a top hat who mauls you just a little, but at least they're not a bear on ice skates that mauls you a lot.

Conspiracists theory is that it is Nintendo's way to push digital sales, but who knows.


You don't have to be a conspiracy theorist to realize how obvious Nintendo is being.

Why does Nintendo want to push digital download so hard? So they don't have to produce disc anymore? Their master plan is to force everyone to just download their games?

I imagine that servers + bandwith is likely less than whatever the cartridges and other fixed costs run them.

That's what I'm doing. I picked up the last Mario Kart bundle my store had and am holding it until Sunday for a price adjustment. The associate said I had 2 weeks to do so, but if for some odd reason it doesn't work out I can just return it and wait for a better deal to come along. Pikachu is fine and all but I figure might as well get something to play with it.

Edit: Nevermind on the first part, see on most sites it's $199.99 and the one on the Target site isn't the one with it preinstalled so disregard the first part.

Isn't the Mario Kart bundle more though? You're probably going to have some uphill YMMV on that adjustment since the ad specifically says regular price $199.99.

Otherwise a price match on a standard XL or 3DS shouldn't be an issue, worst case they would do a return rebuy.

I bought it $199.99+tax at the store. I was surprised since the website has it for more. Like I said, I can always return it if something goes awry, but I doubt it since the regular price is pretty much what they put in the ad.

Edit: I see your updated post no biggie. Hopefully it works out.

Keep in mind if you buy SimCity before the 25th and register before that date you get a free game from Origin.

They don't have to give bestbuy,target,gamestop 30% or more, they don't have production costs, disc costs, printing costs etc. I think the main advantage is you can't resell it so they don't have used games floating around.

they should atleast make the digital download version cheaper since they're saving more and you can't resell it.. but that would be too logical

does target price match, or do they make you return everything and then rebuy it?

Thanks. I just pre-ordered at Target.com just to ensure that I'll get my hands on one. Then I'll price match as soon as I get it.


Did they (Target) charge you the 199.99 automatically or just a preorder porcentage

I feel like it's more on the demand side of people wanting digital downloads.

Still debating if I should sell my 3DS and get an XL...eBay doesn't seem to net much after fees and although I've never had an issue using Craigslist, I just prefer not to.


How much were you looking to get for it on ebay? I was thinking you could probably list for like $110 and come out with close to $100 after fees. But idk.

I tried listing mine on CL for a day and got someone wanting 70 for it and an actual scammer lmao. I might sell mine to a friend, but he doesn't have the cash right now so it would be a payment plan type deal.

FYI if you pre-order the Pikachu system on the website using PayPal when they do the adjustment you'll be getting it back as store credit.

I wonder if this will be something I can just walk in when they open and get I hope someone doesn't go in and buy all of them that would suck.

I think the biggest gamble, unless you live in like LA or something where there's 5 million people looking for it, is just going to be a matter of how many each store actually receives. Nothing's confirmed but there's plenty of speculation that each store might only be getting two systems; considering that's the number of copies most stores got of Monster Hunter and Lego City I wouldn't find it particularly surprising. The only way to be really safe is likely to order it off the website now, or be at Target when they open and know where other nearby Targets or a TRU are just in case.

That I couldn't tell you, all I know is what it tells you when you select PayPal at checkout:

How do returns work if I pay with PayPal?
Since we can't credit your PayPal account, a refund will be issued in the form of a Target GiftCard if returned by mail. A refund will be issued in the form of cash if returned to store.


It doesn't say price adjustments specifically but I can't see it being any different.

Since Swagbucks decided to stop their express shipping until April because of "passover" I won't get my $100 in time for the 3DS deal. I am POed that I will miss this deal, I really wanted a 3DS XL.

Maybe someone will have another cheap deal soon.
