Well it's now Sunday. 1am Eastern. The price hasn't budged on Xenoblade. When will it go live?

About five minutes after you go to sleep.

So it seems. Rats.  Still a good deal getting the expansion for half off.  But getting the base game for 66% off would have been even better.  Guess I'll try to get a paper ad from Target tomorrow and try to price match it in person at Best Buy.

unless local ads are different, it's not in the paper ad. I just checked.

Target fixed the online ad, so that it now reflects it's the expansion, which is on sale.

I was walking up with an employee to get it price matched, at customer service, when it switched on the site. I had a screenshot, but they wouldn't honor it.

I’m happy I was able to snag the last copy of XC2: Torna at my local target. I was even more surprised to see it came with the rest of the expansion pass dlc for XC2. Now I just need to go back and finish XC2, only 60hrs to go.......for just the story.

I could have finished the story around 80hrs in, but I was enjoying all the side stuff so much (like leveling blades and doing their specific missions) that I delayed the ending until about 120 hours.  I think I have around 140 hours in it now and there are still a few things to do.  It was such a fantastic gaming experience... I can't believe I almost passed it up because of some preview stuff that really didn't show off the game (or it's story) very well.

 

The deal for Torna was solid.  If I didn't preorder it back when there was a prime discount, I would have been driving the 45min to my nearest Target sunday morning.

Best Buy price match. Wouldn’t bother with target rain check. They probably won’t restock.

My son wants a Switch specifically for Diablo 3 (and maybe a few other things) but doesn't have it yet.  How common are sales on stuff like Diablo 3?  Should I buy it now or are sales like Xbox and PS4 where they recycle the same items fairly often?

Fairly often, but still about $40

I called Best Buy and had them price match it so I could keep the points.  I also had it on order with Target just in case and I'm glad I did as they were sold out in the area by the time I called them.

Glad to see that there were a few great and cheap 3DS and Wii U games on sale this week for those of us who don't have the scratch to buy a Switch.  I just bought the Gunman Clive HD Collection and Tallowmere for Wii U, and I'm planning to grab Gunman Clive 2 for 3DS.  :D/

 

Anyone know of any deals on eShop credit right now since Easter is coming up?

Diablo 3 seems to go on sale every couple months or so.

Mario Maker 2 in June.
Fire Emblem in July.
No date for Luigi's Mansion 3 but probably October.
No date for Link's Awakening either, just a 2019 window. 
Other games with 2019 windows are Pokemon and Animal Crossing, probably both in late Fall/early Winter though.

If shopping digital and don't currently own a switch you can't buy digital games for the switch.  As far as physical goes, there's always a chance at a better price than the current $40 deal.  Given Amazon is sold out of the physical and shows no signs they are getting extras in, I'd probably go ahead and get in on the Gamestop deal... unless you are not in the USA.  Digital sales cycle on the bottom of the barrel games frequently and are more rare on the bigger mainstream games.  It might be hard to time out a good digital deal.

Thanks for this.  I guess I assumed I could just go ahead and create an online account and purchase games prior to buying the switch and then assign the account to the switch once in hand.  I guess there must be something in that account setup that requires a switch or maybe you can't buy games online (via website) regardless.  Oh well.

You can't buy from the eShop, but you can buy codes from Amazon or other online retailers and redeem them when you have the switch. Amazon will occasionally reflect eShop sale pricing on their site.

I've always thought that's a bit too risky to hold on to a code like that. Either someone else possibly getting it somehow or me just losing it. lol

If you have a switch, just pick a low priced game that interest you and use the gold coins to get it free/cheap.
