Just grabbed this from the new TRU Ad thats up.

Buy Watch Dogs save 40% on any PS4, Xbone, Xbox 360 or PS3 game.

 

Like wise

 

Buy Mario Kart 8 save 40% on any WIIU title.

 

Mario Kart 8 paired with the club Nintendo promo, and TRU make for some interesting combos.

 

MK8 + Super Mario 3D World + Wind Waker for 96 dollars? If I had a WIIU I'd be all over that deal. 

 

Watch Dogs/Wolfenstein for 96 bucks wouldn't be too bad either.

Do you think two of either MK8 or Watch Dogs would trigger the promo or does it have to be "any OTHER game"?

TRU loves those stealth deals.

Nah the ad specifically states WIIU for MK8 and every platform but WIIU for watch dogs. so the way their system is set up it won't trigger. You can try and push the issue and depending on the manager they may give it to you but that is always YMMV. The TRU I work for the management is customer satisifaction above all else so I could see them doing this with no issue.

I believe they are asking if you can buy 2x Watch_Dogs or 2x MK8 or do they need to be different games.

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.

aye my bad. I would assume so. They don't limit at TRU and the way the promos are set up in the computer it will trigger the SKU range for the platforms. So I don't see why 2 watch dogs wouldn't trigger the 40% off one of the Watch Dogs.

In the past TRU promos have worked fine with duplicates so I doubt there's going to be a problem here.

LOL first thing that came to my mind. Unless TRU has a sale going on some game, and you get 40% off that sale price, any deals of this type are now null and void to me.

Well, I think it's a stellar deal. Definitely makes me think about finally getting a Wii U.

Just got a wii u recently and have been enjoying it very much. Its a really good compliment to a X1 or PS4 because while its not nearly as powerful as those consoles it is unique in its own right and has games with different appeal than the other consoles. Plus I didnt own a regular wii for very long so the backwards capabilities make its library of unplayed games huge for me. It may also appeal to other people in your home more than the other consoles. My fiance never plays games (in 5 years the only game we've completed together was Castle Crashers) but last night I fell asleep on the couch and woke up to her playing NSMBu at like 1am and loving it.

With that being said I think im going to be grabbing both games at BB because of gcu

Played Mario Kart 8 at a Gamestop yesterday 6 courses as the store wasn't crowded. Very fun and good looking game, feels a lot like 7 with better graphics.

yeah i read some reviews about how it was "only" 720p and no AA, but w/e it looked great to me and played just as well.

 

If you don't have GU @ BB, this is best straight cash deal (buy 2 return one) for a flat 20% off, assuming you don't care for the free wheel

Returning promo items will result in a wonky value.

They always like to do 40% off. Just make it 50% dang it

Sucks watchdogs is shipping only, arkham origins for $24 wasn't bad but gamestop gives the season pass free.

Quite the pickle.

Lucky you. When I went a little 6 year old girl was hogging the machine and played for at least 15 minutes. I gave up and left but I was getting the urge to shove her.  :-

This could be alright for me, as :wiiu: Lego City is unavailable at every BB in my area and doesn't ship, so my GCU is useless for it.  TRU shows in stock at both nearby stores.

It will be interesting to see if this works instore on 2 copies of Watch_Dogs. On the website it does not.

Anyone's Watch Dogs Shipped yet? They shipped the two 40% off Games for Mario Kart 8 and Watch Dogs but no Watch Dogs Yet I really forgot how much I hate TRU's shipping process, next I will skip them.

I was wondering: Could I have Toys R Us price match Amazon's Super Mario 3D World price ($49.87) on Friday?

 

Basically, you could get Mario Kart 8 ($60) + Super Mario 3D World ($29.92 after being price matched and then discounted by 40%) + Pikmin 3 (free with Nintendo's promo) for $89.92!!! That's a great deal!

I can confirm that the 40% on Watch_Dogs does work on 2 copies of the game.

The instant gc deals & 2 for $50/$70 are the only temptations but my BB`s match them so no matter what BB it is.

This deal sounds pretty awesome and I would have taken advantage of it if only I know.... does this only work if you purchase Mario Kart 8/ Watch Dogs or can you buy a different game and have the 40% sale apply with those.

I took advantage of this deal right before Watch_Dogs was coming out, even more than I planned to. I ordered Watch_Dogs plus Wolfenstein New Order, then got cold feet and canceled a few hours later. Well, they canceled Watch_Dogs (since it was before release date), but for some reason they still shipped Wolfenstein to me at the 40% off price!

 

I don't know if my experience is just a lucky one-time break or if there is something here that others could repeat.
