Just picked up a Wii U this week. Was itching to get some good games, good thing I waited. Def getting Mario and Zelda. But what other titles are included?


Same here. I picked up a Wii U a little over a week ago and am itching to get a good catalog built up. Looking at snagging SM3DW and LoZ WW. Hoping I can grab Lego City and Pikmin 3 as part of this deal as well.

Might grab a eshop card. What do I use it for, virtual console games?

Hmm... Do I take part in this B1G1 50% off or take my chances and wait for a B2G1 free? I think I'm going to just get SM3DW and WWHD with this sale.

Oh good, hopefully they'll have better stock on the Skylanders than for BF and they'll still get the GCU discount.

They are essentially the same deal…. Price wise….  Just boils down to game multiples.

I just bought the Mario & Luigi 3DS at Target with the 20% off coupon.  This would have been a slightly better deal, I think.

 

I wonder if this will work on the Zelda 3DS and if they have any left anywhere after Black Friday. 

 

I think I actually like the design of the Mario & Luigi more than the Zelda though.  I'm about 4 hours into Dream Team now.  It's fun...but SO MUCH DIALOGUE.

the current trade ins without the bonus are actually better then when best buy offers a bonus….  I beat and traded in Killzone….got $44 for it, then used that credit to get Ryse for $4 (plus tax), $47.99 - $44, and now I'm going back today to trade in Ryse for $44……  Gonna use that value to get Forza next week with the 400 bonus!

 

I mean who else gives $44 for a game trade in?!?!  No one!

Thanks for the trade-in value head's up. Played Ryse and enjoyed it. May just trade it in for the $44 and pick it back up in a few months when it drops in value.

You're welcome.  Yea it was fun, but after you beat it the Arena aspect isn't enough to warrant me keeping it when I can get $44 back…I'm going to trade it in after work.

Would Walmart price match the buy 1 get 50% off? I would love to get a Wii U and then use the $25 GC with that deal.

If I were to pick up 2 copies of Ryse, would I get 800 bonus points?  or is there typically a one per title limit?  I know someone earlier mentioned a limit of 5 total.

Is this Buy one get one 50% off thing gonna work online, or do I have to actually go to the store?  

 

Works out to two 3DS games for $30 each.  Might be okay for getting two copies of A Link Between Worlds for gifts for $30 each plus tax.  (Okay, not a great deal... but better than retail price.)

Should be of note that many of the non-gift card deals are "Rollbacks". This is encouraging to know since other retailers are likely to follow, meaning possible sales on top of that in the future.

It did over the BF week, we'll see if it still does.  I'm a skeptical but hopeful since it seems like the kind of thing that isn't meant to be covered by it.

Also same here. I'm down to get SM3DW, but I wonder what else to pick up with it. New Super Mario Bros. U, The Wonderful 101, and  Pikmin 3 are on my list.

Are there any good exclusive eshop games? I'm new to the 3DS so am not sure. I usually like to get retail versions of games if I can but would be interested in stuff that is only on the eshop.

Everyone should have Earthbound.  :)

 

Also, make sure you check out the Wii U General discussion thread here on CAG, and also check out the Wii U eShop Deals thread.

NSMBU already comes with system. Don't forget to pick up Zelda.

It depends on your situation to maximize the deal.

Do you want 3 games or only 2?

Looking at the $40 price range, your estimated value of paying for each is $30, where as the B2G1 is roughly $27.

Edit: in the $60 price point your looking at spending $40 B2G1 vs $45 in this deal.

Is it really worth waiting and risking for the B2G1 never coming around over $3 or $5 really worth it?

Assuming all game you plan to pick up are $60

B2g1F : $60+60+60=$180-60=$120/3= $40 per game.

B1G1half: $60+60=120-30(1/2 game)= $90/2= $45 per game.

 

During Target last Buy 2 get 1 free sale, a lot of the Wii U titles were $50 online(i.e. Pikmin, Zelda Wonderful 101)

For those looking to get a Wii U, you can get the system for $299 and get the $25 Giftcard.

 

Use the $25 giftcard and get say Mario 3D World and Wind Waker combined for $65 total. So about $365 for Wii U + Mario 3D World + Wind Waker

Skylanders get the GCU 20% discount? Is that right??

I've purchased the Skylanders Swapforce game and figures and they've applied the GCU discount to all of them. You can test right now by putting the items in your cart at bestbuy.com and it will show the discount. Works for Infinity characters as well.
