It's temporary OOS at Amazon

Best Buy

I think if you have Gamers Club it will come out around $19 for it.

I was gonna say I regret including this in my Target B2G1 purchase last November, but I remembered that between the 30% off coupon and the 5% off for using my Red card, it came out to exactly $22.16 prior to tax after all. Hah.

Lol I thought I was crazy for thinking the exact same thing last night when I first saw this deal. It's only $4 difference but it's makes a difference when you don't plan on realistically playing it for months anyway.

Hopefully u mean epic yarn or dream collection and not return to dreamland. :-P. That game is expensive now unless u found one at a closing blockbuster.

I think the only problem youll encounter is that both kirby and metroid had a huge following to them and nintendo printed a ton of them. Wonderful101 is a new IP and inventory is slowly drying up.

It wasn't the best Metroid game out there, but I feel that calling it "terrible" is a bit extreme.

I was told back when it was on sale for 35 to go for it because if I don't it will get rare and I would have to buy it for god knows how much later. I will take a chance this time and wait. If it does go super expensive I will just wait and get lucky at a garage sale where a single mom is selling her collage graduates things for super cheap.

Sounds about right. A niche game that's a new IP on a underselling piece of hardware? It's a perfect storm for low sales numbers.

The price recently dropped to $29.99. I'll pick it up when it's under $20.

It was terrible compared to other games in the series. On its own, it was merely mediocre.

All stores near me are showing out of stock. Might order online just in case it goes rare and super expensive

Thats why I ordered, regardless of whether the price is gonna get jacked up, very few stores had any copies in either of the 2 areas I frequent. I doubt the price could drop that much lower to make me regret this

Stopped by Local Liberty Bestbuy (MO) Price $27.98.  I told the cashier they price match BBY $23.99 - 20% off = $19.19 plus taxes.  End up picke up 2 copies.  Seem like Hard Copy will be OOP soon and only version we will see is digital version on E-shop.

Yeah, new games drop so fast in price now that $20 is my borderline level for harder to find games, $15 is my more comfortable price point, and $10 I can just buy without thinking much.

Did the other retailers like Target replenish their stock after they sold out online when it dropped to $29.99? Serious question, btw? 3 local GameStops never replaced them but that's not unusual for this type of game where I live.

It's worth it at this price especially if you are a fan of Platinum Games output. Was a great game and deserved to sell so much better. It doesn't seem likely with the sales it has had but I would love to see more games in W101 universe.

This price is pretty good, but considering I'm not looking to buy a WiiU until next Christmas, or sooner if it ever reaches the 200 or less club. I just can't justify buying it now. I'll have to keep an eye on rarity, but every store in my town has it, and I'll doubt they'll be a rush anytime soon, so waiting on a 20 or less price tag seems the way to go.

This kind of price seems okay if it's a game you MUST PLAY or if you have NO BACKLOG.  If it's a game you don't feel you must play or you have a backlog then you're better off waiting for 10 or 15.  If it goes out of stock and OOP in the meantime and never hits that level then oh well, it's not a game you MUST PLAY anyway or you would have bought it for $25.  This is the situation where people increase their backlog and end up looking at stacks and stacks of games that they buy but will never play.

I picked a copy up because only one electronics retailer in my city had a copy and it was the last one.

I guess its all about location the stores around here which is just a Walmart and a locally owned game store have plenty in stock. I just don't know since I can still find Vanquish and Bayonetta for 6 bucks at my local store. Just trying to be a better CAG everyday. Also I'm about 60 games deep in my backlog. O:)

Not necessarily true. Could also be an investment. Not saying it will become like xenoblade or other games that go OOP then you can sell them for over 100 but it's a possibility.

Yeah but then you've got to pay an extra $120 to save $4. Not really worth it in the long run.

I was able to get Wal-Mart to price match to Best Buy, despite it being "clearance".

It's worth it for most people that were already in the program. Those in the program also are renewing for 2 more years @ $30.
