Does not change people's reaction to Amazon putting it on "sale".


Who did it first? Is it currently $29.99 at Gamestop?

Does amazon say "Look at me, look at me"? and send out e-mails or fliers advertising this price?

Does amazon charge more for used games then games on sale?

Would I get an opened game if I bought it new from amazon?

I don't really bag on Gamestop but the thing is Amazon's price is active right now

We have to wait till the 20th for Gamestop, just saying.

Gamestop has been on par with most places. I mean I gave it props when it put Crysis 3 and Dead Space 3 on sale before more other stores -shrugs-

Seems like you just don't like GS and that has nothing to do with this particular game. GS advertising a MSRP price drop is not unique to GS. Other retailers do that all the time. Amazon sends me a dozen emails a week telling me to buy games that just came out.

Monster Hunter comes out Tuesday for the WII U and the 3DS.... no circle pad pro announcement so most people (me) are importing it. Play-asia had the best deal going into this weekend so far. (20 bucks for the item, 20 bucks for 3 day shipping) Amazon was $45 with super saver shipping.


Tuesday?

I saw the 3DS version out at Best Buy earlier.

Should it be pretty easy for me to walk into walmart at midnight next week and price match one of these pikachu 3ds's for my girlfriend? Would i need the ad or could i pull the ad up on my phone from the target website?

Im gonna try this, so hopefully it goes well. Otherwise I gotta drive a bit, to the closest target.

Any guesses for the price of BL2? Isn't it already on sale for $40 this week at GS?

is there a reason why the Pokemon mystery dungeon game is $40 at Best Buy, when everywhere else it is $34.99?

I was hoping they would price match Target's 3DS prices since I have Best Buy credit to use.... so does anyone know a place that I can exchange a $50 Best Buy gift card for a $50 Target gift card?

Wasnt sure where else to ask but is it true you can't use shopyourway points to buy PSN cards? They gave me 7 to use and when I went to use it, they said I can't use it on those kinda cards.

You should be able to price match Target's deal at Best Buy on the 3DS. It's during the same week.

I am just going to guess that there is probably 50,000 of these made. Just a super quick rough estimate on top of my head. It could be anywhere from the 30k-100k range in my opinion.

They will be flooded on ebay, so I really wouldn't think of this is an investment for the future. I think your best bet is being able to retain the value of your console, but these will never be rare. The one good thing about this console is that keeping yours mint condition will go a long way. I see a lot of these going to kids, which could significantly lower the total number of minty consoles much lower in the future.


Anyone who thinks this is going to be super rare is out of their minds. Nintendo wouldn't advertise the hell out of this on their official sites and facebook, to only come out with a very limited stock. I am assuming each store will get at least 5 copies, but that is being conservative. Each store will probably get a box of these shipped to them. I have no idea how many can fit in a standard 3DS XL shipping box, but that is probably how much each store will get.

I would still recommend going the morning of the release, especially if you are going to Target. I know for a fact these will sell for more than $160 no matter how many are made. Resellers will wipe every Target clean of these. If this happens in your area go straight to the nearest Walmart and price match it, but knowing resellers these days will probably do that also.

As usual with modern game collecting, if you don't get one of these it is because every reseller on ebay will have a mini warehouse of these. It isn't because 10s of thousands of hardcore pokemon fans ran to the store in the morning on a Sunday.

Oh, am I gonna have to find one of those to play it? If so, probably gonna pass. I bought a MotionPlus for Skyward sword and nothing else, this would be the same situation.

Come on Tomb Raider...we need a sale so I can price match my pre-order copy.

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.

If you're referring to the Circle Pad Pro XL/LL then eBay is your best bet since Amazon has it for $35+ (with tracking) whereas reputable eBay sellers has it for $28 - $30. Mine just got here the other day from Asia & took only one week even though the listing said takes up to a month.

Target and Best Buy confrims it. Sim City price drop. That is why I never buy games at launch.
