Best Buy Ad 12/10-12/17: Buy One, Get One 50% Off on select 3DS Games

Sounds like the reduced MSRP for PS4Pro and PSVR are locked behind a combo paywall.

 

 

 

 

I guess it might be confusing since it looks like the GT bundle is getting a double MSRP reduction (one perm [$50], one temp [$100])

 

 

Er...that GT bundle's MSRP pricing is currently all over the place. $300 @ Target, $350 @ BB, $400 at GS/Walmart

It will be a pretty substantial list if it's anything like last year. Probably a good 30-40 choices minus the ones excluded.

It should be in addition to the $100 off.

It's possible.



Okay in a for a pro and model 1 of VR headset, 3ds xl black

Will the PS4 Pro deals announced today start Sunday at Best Buy as well?

I like how PUBG explicitly states that it an unfinished game available for purchase.  Do they not have enough money to finish development while providing a free beta?  I guess Fortnite really rushed their schedule.

If Metroid: Samus Returns isn't part of this deal, it's a fucking waste of everybody's time. It wasn't on sale during BF or CM, so it better be here. Tired of Nintendo being the only publisher not to put their shit on sale. Damn it, Nintendo, throw us an occasional bone.

PUBG has been slated for release in the fall before fortnite even came out.

PUBG is never going to be "finished". Gonna be buggy and unoptimized forever

It was essentially $26.66 pre-tax @ Target around a month ago during their B2G1 sale; you just had to take advantage of their prorated returns. I actually picked Samus Returns as one of my three games, but ultimately decided to return that and Mario Maker because I only really wanted Pokémon Ultra Moon.

That seriously works? I had no idea! Can we do that at Best Buy or do they have a different system?

Need a pic of the ad, they are probably counting the $100 price drop for the vr already that week.

I’m picking up a pro, 3ds xl, metroid, and fire emblem. Will definitely purchase during targets b2 g1 next year instead of waiting for bestbuy.

 

Well I hope that's not the case. That would be pretty misleading.

Unfortunately Best Buy only carries five of the six 3DS games I want so I may have to double up on something or make something a Christmas Gift.

Is Super Smash Bros gonna be part of this sale? Got this 3DS here and that's the only game I really wanted to play at the moment.

Highly doubt they are dumb enough to repeat the same glitch, but you know I will be on it at 10pm PST on the dot.

Eh, Mario + Rabbids And Disgaea 5 going on sale did the trick anyway, it’s Splatoon 2 and FE: Warriors I wanted otherwise.

Hoping for the Lady Layton game plus something else (Metroid/Superstar Saga...something else).

Minecraft isn't published by Nintendo though. Also neither is Lady Layton.

Why do you think this considering the dreadful selection PS4 and Xbox got this year?

Because this is a Nintendo sale on Nintendo games and Nintendo makes a lot of games. :D

Both are published by Nintendo actually. ;)

Very tempted to renew my gcu for this sale, but i gotta stay strong.

Edit: what's the possibility of bb having a b2g1 on 3ds games around spring/summer?

Go to Best Buy and sort through all the 3DS games they have available.  Anything on 3DS with Publisher=Nintendo should be part of this sale aside from the 3 exclusions previously listed.  I'm personally going to try and get the new Layton and Mario & Luigi titles as both never went on sale when they first came out.  Comes to about $23.99 each if you have GCU (one for $31.99 and one for $15.99).

Or if we're lucky, $16 each after glitches.

Meh. I'll just use the $30-worth of promo certs on Metroid next month.

Wow they pushed GoT out early and raised the price for the shortest season. Fuck off HBO.

Another disappointing ad, and I'm not holding my breath on a Switch sale the following week. BB knows we'll buy the popular games anyways.

 

It's sad because I have $80 in rewards certs. Now I'm looking at buying a vacuum...
