exactly. it won't go down for quite some time. look at mario 3d world. that game came out a little while ago and still retails for the same price.

Yep. I end up keeping my eyes open for sales. Like what Wal-Mart did for 3d World online, and same with MK8. Ended up ordering it online and being able to get them instore for the online price.

Hoping for FIFA 15 and NBA 2K15 for 34.99 or less for xbox one this year :D

I'll take NBA 2K15 at that price on PS4 or in a killer bundle.

Nintendo rarely ever offers lowball prices on first party games. Then they wonder why some people never buy them.

Nintendo drops their gane prices towards the end of their consoles life cycle, such a lame practice lol

Yep. And that's for a lot of the other companies too. Sales are basically the only way to get a deal.

Either that or the companies that print the ads.


This. Most started printing last week. (I'm kinda surprised they haven't leaked yet.)

Again if you guys are banking on Nintendo games to go on sale like Smash Bros for 29.99 you are in the wrong business. Nintendo First Party games never ever go on sale and if they do its about 5-10 off the MSRP at most. The games go on sale at the end of the console's life cycle or the best deals come with bundles.

I had gotten my copy of Super Smash on Day One for $27 plus 6% tax from Best Buy.

You can get the same price now. Just Find a 10% off coupon with the GCU discount.

I'm talking about the Wii U version. I got mine for about 30 bucks with the 10% coupon and some money left over on a giftcard. Everyone on this thread is thinking that Hyrule Warriors, SSMB U, SM3DW, DKTF, and other games are gonna be dirt cheap. The only Wii U games that are  going to be cheap are third party games and that is the last reason why you should buy a Wii U. Best 3rd party game by far is Splinter Cell Blacklist though

Do you have a PS4? I only ask cause Injustice is free next month with Plus. If you don't. maybe there's a way to snag it and get it in your purchase history for when you do have a ps4.

No I do not and I don't plan to get one for a while my backlog on PS3 is huge. Also I have the battle edition and collectors edition for Injustice Gods among us but I really wanted the ultimate edition because I sold my 2 vanilla copies that came with my other editions.

To be fair, I didn't believe we would see decent sale prices on A Link Between Worlds and Pokemon Black/White 2 and X/Y, but we've seen those.   I still don't think some sort of sale on Hyrule Warriors is out of the question, since it's loosely first party.  The others I have very little interest in, so I can't comment on those.

Decent prices on outdated 3DS games perhaps and that happens often.

 

Hyrule Warriors may be the only game to go on sale and perhaps offer an amiibo as well to entice people

 

I have high interest in all the others but not if I'm going to pay 65+ for each. The only game I'd buy is SSMBU and at that I can wait since I have the 3DS version which is equally fun

Is there some special reason black friday ads have not leaked yet? I would have expected walmart and such to leak already.

GCU at bestbuy will allow you to avoid full retail.

And I think we should reserve Smash comparisons until we have both versions available to play.

Not so much "east" that's in question as it is "coast."

 looking to pick up either a xbox one or ps4 bundle this holiday season. I had a xbox one in the early stages and it wasnt too good, sold it and just held off on another console. 

 

Ps4 with gtaV & the last of us @$399 seem pretty decent

 

xbox one COD bundle $349 at sams possible? gtaV how much would it drop come black friday? $39?

 

Pretty much the only two games I would play would be COD & gtaV

Thanks for the helpful link. This gets me excited knowing that Wal-Mart and Best Buy may release their ads next week. I hope to do everything online for a fourth year in a row.

The best deal on 3ds smash will end in 2 days. It trades for 20 + 60% w/ GCU now.

 

1. buy smash now, save receipt (1)

2. Try it out and trade it in for 32 to BB w/ GCU, don't foreget ot register the CN code

3. Sunday buy 2 smashes with B2G1 50 0ff.

4. return 1 of the smashes with receipt (1).

5. deal is sweetened with movers and promo 5 cert going on.

 

Even the best BF deals require planning, best deals ever on stuff requires the same.

Something just isn't right about this "deal".

 

*This is basically return fraud. You are getting an item (albeit from the same place) and returning it under a different receipt and also selling them an item again, albeit in your right to do that part.

You just told me I did nothing wrong.

 

Or to rephrase, I bought 3 items from them and returned 2 w/ receipt, concent, and under their own rules w/ condition agreed by both parties.

Don't paraphrase what I said. It's in your right to trade in the game you bought, not do return fraud w/ the 2nd copy you're buying.

Your phrasing made it seem like you're going to buy it now. Trade it in (which is perfectly fine). Than next week buy it again during the B2G1 and than return that copy with the receipt you got from the 1st purchase of just the game (not the same receipt you actually bought it on).

If this is not the case that you are trying to do than by all means.
