Scribblenauts Unmasked is $60 on WiiU?  WTF?  I thought it'd be $40 tops.

I guess they are cashing in on the fact that WiiU owners have nothing good to play, but damn....

 

 

Yeah, it's a great tactic for morons too damn stupid too damn stupid to look up prices online.  I don't know anybody who's fooled by that nonsense. 

Non gamers/parents are fooled by that non sense.

As a Walmart employee, I know for a fact that Walmart never has any legit sales.

 

What they do is post regularly-priced items in a flyer then people think they are on sale and buy them. It's a great tactic.

Walmart does sell those individual containers of velveeta shells cheaper than most places - my 7 year old loves them.   :rofl:


Selling on Amazon as Gaming Cheaply

 

Please feel free to PM me if there is a game you want to purchase cheaper than Amazon Warehouse or Gamestop.

Good deal for Pokemon X and Y? Order both and get $10 GC back with free in-store pickup on release date. Newegg had it for a buck or two cheaper, but I hear that shipping takes forever...

These aren't MSRP; everything is a whopping 3 cents below MSRP.

Really want to PM GTAV SE in a NYC store either in Target or BB.... but according to the online stock locator no one seems to have it in stock. 

 

Bummer...

Ok.. I can't find the proper thread to post this.. 

 

Has anyone made a preorder at a best buy store by taking one of those cards to the register to put down $5?

 

I preordered COD Ghosts for 360. The big signage at the store mentions you are supposed to get a code for your avatar 'now' and a tshirt at pickup. Needless to say, there was no code on my receipt and of course no one was able to explain. Advice?

 

edit- found a forum link that may be helpful will give it a shot but curious to see if anyone on here has been through the same

Neither, that's the system, not the game

 

So they're releasing the LE systems...before the games?  Imagine if the Wii U WW bundle came out and there was no way to get the games, or the Halo 360's.  Seems pretty damn silly.

But the X/Y Console is not a bundle. It is just a themed console. It does not include the game neither physically or digitally.

My thoughts exactly. Don't worry though, I can see the game dropping to $10 soon enough.

There is no one true CAG. Some are more "gamer," some are more "cheap" and certainly some are far more "ass."

The first Halo 360 (for H3) came out a few weeks before the game and didn't have the game included, FYI. I do agree it's silly but it's happened before.

No trade bonus.

First, how can you claim prior non-existance to devalue a movement? I am sure the civil rights movement would love that. "Well, there was no movement to free the slaves before, so why is it relavent now?"

I'm thinking of going to walmart to get the new pokemon.

If I go on midnight would I be able to get it or gotta wait till morning of 12th?

I never did this for a game before so not sure.

Is it routine to put up ads regardless of whether or not there are actually deals? Seems kinda irrelevant to post MSRP prices on a site that is all about deals. Maybe next to the thread title put in parentheses "all msrp. Crap deals. More like Cheap Ass Retailer amirite"

You should be able to walk in at midnight or a little after and the electronics associate can sell it to you at or after 12:01am Tuesday.

A lot of times in walmart they have the mod in the back ready to go well ahead of time. Sometimes it would be a couple of hours till it gets rolled out onto the sales floor but Hydro is correct. If you ask for something that is released, as of 12:01 they can sell it to you. at anytime before that, even if you were able to get your hands on a copy the register wont permit the sale. they tie the release date to the upc that they scan somehow.

Didn't even know Black Ops 2 was on sale for Wii U til I was there the other day. Went near there hoping to do the Target B2G1 free on Wii U and ended up just grabbing some WiiU stuff at Best Buy instead, got Black Ops 2 purely on a whim for the gamepad features. Turned out I got it before it went up to what it is now.

That's my point in every way.  Dumb it's not a bundle and dumb it's coming out before the games.

 

The first Halo 360 (for H3) came out a few weeks before the game and didn't have the game included, FYI. I do agree it's silly but it's happened before.

I remembered it happening before just didn't remember what, H3 is probably what I was thinking of.
