Thank you Tyrok for the ad. Tekken for alittle over $11 (after my certificate) is the perfect price. I could use a down time filler between my playthrough of God of War.

Glad Avatar is discounted a little on release week. I was tempted to pre-order at $50 but saving a little without having to reorder makes me happy.

Keep in mind Tekken had a $10 price drop the same day as Wolfenstein so they might consider it "already on sale" at $30. :-

I haven't looked into it but I hope Donkey Kong isn't as reliant on motion controls as the Wii one.  That game was downright infuriating.

No worries, Tropical Freeze doesn't use motion on Wii U nor Switch.

Best Buy deals have been consistently underwhelming especially as of late. Horrible.

Man, its the switch, why would it be anything but spectacular and fresh? Tsk tsk ....
Only question for me is what price to buy it at

And Amazon's better? For me, BB is the best place to buy console video games most of the time ever since gcu was a thing.

I agree, but I'm really just comparing BB to its former self. Cut it any way you like - these weekly ads have been very lackluster. Just look at the comments from the past month or two of threads.

True but no other retailers are out doing them either during the weak periods so... they are still the best.  :lol:

So if I buy Tekken 7 in store will the Steelbook ring up free?

The motion controls are still there in both versions, but they're optional. :)

... Tremors: A Cold Day in Hell? They're never gonna stop making these are they? I don't know how to feel about that.

Speaking for yourself, maybe, but have you ever checked Best Buy's actual website such as daily deals? Everything from TVs and batteries to video games and movies constantly have amazing deals. Best Buy may not advertise weekly deals in the outdated format of paper ads that speak to you but their online deals are great.

Edit : I'd also double-down and wonder what it is you expect... Are Target and Wal-Mart's ad deals blowing you away?

Regret not picking up MHW with my now-expired $5 renewal coupon. Could've stacked it with the $1 off pickup. Now I'll just be cheap and wait until BF.

Dang, usually the first sale is 40/32 at BB, gotta decide if 50/40 is worth it on FC5.

If you have a backlog, which I'm sure you do, wait. It will drop in ~3 weeks.

Absolutely. Story mode is based on the Mishima clan and ties in all the events of the preceding Tekken games. I brought this game at release. Very satisfied with this purchase.

Two weeks in a row with a price match available on a game bought at launch for Elite Plus members after not having one for a while. Far Cry 5 for $40 plus the $10 pre-order rewards cert is a pretty nice deal.

Yeahhhh.... noooo

According to last weekly ads and the real sale price it seems that tekken 7 will be at $24.99 before GCU.

I find it funny how everyone moans and complains about how shitty the ad is nearly every week...this is no different then any other year...the sales dry up in the spring and summer months and then in the fall and winter boom
Sales galore. Happens literally every year don't get why it shocks people every damn year.

Haha, don't judge the book by its cover... unless you had first hand experience. Even then, it's subjective. lol
