South park is well worth $40. I skipped my 150+ backlog to play it. I'd say it's 12-14 hours long but likely little to do after it's over. I only play games once though so no big deal.

Who knows how bad the drop off was in sales the next week though

I think its like that week Target had Mario 3d World on sale. Nintendo is giving retailers discounts on the popular titles a while after to keep them stocking Wii Us and software. Same thing will happen with Mario Kart with another place. Count on it

not to mention that it sold around 100,000 copys in the u.s the first week from what ive read. with millions of ps3s and 360s out there in the u.s thats terrible. if it released a year earlier it would have faired much better imo as i think the excitment of the new consoles made people forget about this game. hope they port it over to next gen like they did with rayman !


It`s still did well overall though, an estimated 500,000 week one worldwide in a crowed week with dark souls 2 & titanfall releasing plus all 3 CE`s too.

It's up to you, really--first-party games on Nintendo systems don't tend to drop in price very quickly.


Counterpoint to this argument: Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze on sale for $39.99. Uh. ???

Yikes, DK alrready getting a sale? I know it sold 130k in 7 days in February via NPD, kinda odd to see a sale so soon if it sold that good. (For reference, Pikmin 3 and Mario 3D World sold about the same in 2 weeks or more)

This isn't the first time it's been on sale.  I don't wanna speculate how it's doing but, let's be honest here, it's an overpriced 2D Platformer that doesn't have Mario stamped on it.  I doubt the sales are good.....

 

Though I know it's already sold like 5 or 6 times what Wii Fit U sold  :rofl:

the last dk did around 10 million though so the lack of sales for this game surprises me, even with the lacking wii u sales. i always have love for platformers !!

Source?  Aside from VG chartz (which says 6 million) I can't find anything that says they even sold half of that amount.  Which seems very, very high for a game like DK.

i wish i could find it again but i read around 10 million. theres over 100 wii's out there and the wii u is backwards compatible so i wouldnt be surprised if it hit that # by now. oh and its on the 3ds too

According to nintendo it sold 4 million in it`s 1st month of release the article is from Jan 2011 so the VGchartz sales seem about right 6-7 million

Are Best Buy gift card deals like the Wii U deal usually available for shipping online?

I could be wrong, I thought they deduct part (half in this case) of the gift card. I know with Target it tells you this right on the receipt what your returned item is worth.

This is the slowest beginning of the year I can recall. I haven't seen a good sale in ages.

I think you missed what I was saying, bringing back one of the games that got you a bonus gift card will net you the price you paid for that game game MINUS half of the gift card's total (ex. $40 game & $40 game with $15 gc, bring back one of those $40 games and they'll give you $32.50) got it now? I didn't literally mean they'll physically ask for half of your gift card.

Had to laugh at this.  Thanks for the morning giggle.

Getting south park for $40 is a great deal.  May pick up donkey kong also

Well sadly I don't have the GCU, but I think trading in some games (that might be worth it) to WM and then PM the game and get it even cheaper. Even still, $40 for this game is pretty good. If it's dropping by $10 this fast, I'm wondering if it'll be worth the wait to see if it ever drops to $30..  :-k

 

Nah. I'll get it this weekend. :bouncy:

Observe ladies and gentlemen, this individual knows good games! Titanfall and Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze. Two completely different games, on completely different consoles, aimed at completely different types of gamers. Yet you can enjoy both of them...Rarely do I see anyone with such a diverse taste in gaming anymore- I salute you!

I just noticed a lot more shipping availability on many games on the Best Buy website. I've been watching some Wii U games all week, but the only one they had available to ship was Super Mario 3D World.  Today, they also had Pikmin 3 and Windwaker HD, so I finally had my three games.

I have and enjoy both games. People should learn to be open-minded and play any great game no matter what platform it is on. :)

Also I wished sonic lost world was going to be cheaper than $40.

This is the definitive Best Buy thread. All others don't deserve to exist because they don't include a story of Twitter's narrow escape from the blue shirts.

I took advantage of the $40 Xbox One trade deal last week, so I think I'll finally get DK. My Wii U deserves some love.
