I wonder what’s going on here. Maybe they are tired of getting their asses kicked. GameStop should follow or die.

Christ, Walmart is getting pretty competitive with these prices lately, I hope Amazon PM them. Going to put some preorders down and see if they do.

I may have to re-evaluate my current pre-order at GS for Dragons Dogma when price compared to WM.

If a third company jumps in the 20% off pre-orders. Woo boy.

I didn't even realize Dragon's Dogma was coming to PS4. For ~$23 that is a no brainer.

The best thing about Walmart is the pickup process will be full of errors, lost product, slow shipping and someone just off meth working the game counter. Plus the fact that generating credit that like you can amazon or Best Buy makes it a non competitor for me.

Anybody familiar with Walmart Preorders? More specifically, do they charge right away, put a hold on the account, charge when they ship?

yea, Capcom asking price $30 is absurdly steep for a port

Just an authorization, it drops down after a couple of days, just like BB. 

I had one but it got cancelled, so never have actually ship or pick up something. Guessing it's when it ships.

But that's the point, these are better prices than BBY or Amazon...

Something seems messed up.  Each of these games has 2 listings.  One at the normal price and one at this the discounted one.  Both show up when you search for the game though.  They have different item numbers and SKUs though.  For example:

https://www.walmart....Switch/55791768

I noticed that as well but there are other games just as cheep that only have one listing. Wish I could get Best Buy to price match a preorder but they won’t.

Every preorder I've done from Walmart has had free shipping no matter the price so my guess is these all should have free shipping at checkout.

 

Also, as mentioned in another thread:

 

Sine Mora EX (Switch) - $21.20 (MSRP $29.99):

Shin Megami Tensei: Strange Journey Redux (Nintendo 3DS)

$32.96

 

 

Not a pre-order, but still a good deal:

Dragon Quest VIII: Journey of the Cursed King for Nintendo 3DS $29.99

EXCELLENT! Come on Walmart. Let's do this for all games. Let's bring this competitiveness against Amazon and Best Buy (both of whom require memberships to get discounts). Plus, the more competitors - the better it is for us gamers!

 

With Walmart entering this field, things are now gonna get interesting.

I don’t understand what the competitive advantage is here anymore. It’s a race to the bottom and knowing from my previous retail life the actual cost on these games these retailers are bleeding out basically all profit for them. It’s like video games are the new cheep cds to lure people in only these retailers are online as well defeating the purpose...

Probably the same idea as GS getting foot traffics for their stores, only now it's web traffics that Walmart steals from Amazon/Best Buy?

The specs for the higher priced one says it's for the Wii and also has a different manufacturer part number.

Hmm, may have to switch my Wolfenstein 2 preorder over to Walmart from Best Buy.  Its nearly $10 cheaper even with GCU.

I get a lot of "free" money off savings catcher.

You would be surprised by how much money Wal-Mart gives back through savings catcher if you shop there every few weeks.

Granted you can spend it on other things. Every $5 I get I spend it on xbox credit via the website and have it e-mailed to me.
