Woah. 59.99 + 29.99 is already close to 90 dollars without tax.... so idk how you got 71.

 

Although, pricematching any prices at the time should work and theyll bring the lower one down, along with redcard. So this is a very good deal.

Well crap, I was keeping the last copy of Lego City Undercover they had sealed so I could do a return/rebuy and pick up the last P.Layton game I needed for 50% off.

What are amiibos good for right now? I'm so disappointed in how limited and bad Mario Party 10 is, and given how useless amiibos are in Mario Kart 8, they're really just toys for Smash now, right?

 

Also, super-disappointed Nintendo games are exempt from the sale. I am starting to think about just keeping my Smash 3DSXL from Target at this point, and was considering picking up some games when I heard this sale was going to happen. I guess Best Buy's superior pricing and GCU essentially exists as an eternal alternative to this sale, but it still sucks a bit.

I'm glad I saw this. I was about to go to Target and buy some new Skylanders. Now, I guess that I can wait.

Codename STEAM seems like it has the best amiibo bonus.....but then again it should, aren't the Fire Emblem characters rare?

Yeah, Marth is getting a reprint for late April but otherwise goes for nearly triple digits on eBay for a US version ($30-$40 for JPN/EU versions). Ike is around $30-$35 for a US version, and the other ones aren't out yet. On top of that, you need a New Nintendo 3DS as the amiibo portal for the older systems is not out yet with no release date besides Summer 2015 for Japan so that's another barrier.

 

I personally like Hyrule Warriors and Kirby Rainbow Curse functionalities. I haven't played Smash Bros. yet but I hear it's neat. I'm also excited to try out the Captain Toad Treasure Tracker feature only because I'll take any excuse to play that game more.

Yup, all Xbox/Playstation/PC software. Essentially 25 % off (plus an additional 5% of that with REDcard debit or credit card). This little icon indicates PS4 --> :ps4:

Maybe I'll bite and pick up the show and Bloodbourne. I have a feeling those will both be sold out at my store.

So a lot of very limited options is what I see. Are all amiibos compatible with Hyrule Warriors, and are the bonuses meaningful? The Mario Kart 8 one is pretty disappointing, and I'm not sure which amiibos are compatible. To me, most all of those are somewhat pointless. The Xenoblade and Hyrule ones sound almost like microtransactions, where you spend real money, then use the amiibo for in-game items, haha.

 

I guess when amiibos were announced, I expected a Skylanders/Disney Infinity experience. I thought we would see them used for in-game play. Smash does it, but isn't it A.I.-controlled? Codename only wants to do it with a few of the characters. The overall use of amiibos is disappointing to me. I'd have liked to see them become playable in Mario Kart 8 as well, not just a skin. I was also hoping for that in Mario Party 10, as opposed to having a limited number of functional amiibos, and using them only on a super-tiny, square board. All of MP10 is a colossal letdown though, so I can't say the amiibos hurt any more than the rest of it.

since Target prorates their returns for sales like this, you could buy 2 same priced games and return 1, leaving you with one game at 25% off (spend $90 to get two $60 games, return one at the prorated $45 rate). If you are only interested in one game.

Looks like PS4 is getting an E3 price cut, between the $50 GC here, GS's free year of PS+, and Best Buy and Target's free Silver Headset deals (about $40 at retail).

I'll be really shocked if we're not looking at a $350 MSRP in June.

Why would sony cut the price ? It's selling incredibly well and it's outselling it's competition which is 50$ cheaper than the ps4

Man, there's a sale on PS4 every week these days, if someone wants to buy one this probably is the right time. Anyways, B1G1 50% off is what I will be looking for - agreed it is not as good as B1G1 Free or B2G1 Free, but it is at least something.

I was really hoping that Nintendo games would be apart of the B1G1 50% off so I could get Code Name Steam and Majora's Mask 3D.
