Mario + Rabbids @ $24 is very good with those w/ GCU. Very tempting.

At this point, anyone that's wanted it should've bought it one of the last 10 times it's been that price.

Usually a few more sale titles get added on Sunday morning.  I fully expect that to happen again this Sunday.

I never understood why it's in July when June would make more sense.

Hmmm, A Quiet Place was great, but I'm not sure if I'd be interested in repeat viewings. It really works best the first time through, but once you know how it goes it loses a lot of the suspense.

Just wait until they rerelease it with the Donkey Kong DLC included. ;)

I had Red Faction pre-ordered but then I saw it was only $9.99 on Steam AND it came out on July 3rd as originally scheduled:

It's called Gold Edition. Digital only and was on e3 sale earlier. 

 

Doubt they'll do a physical complete edition unless much later if at all.

Does Best Buy know that retail price isn't a sale? So many games with 0 discounts.

 

Edit - nevermind they fixed it. They had listed a bunch of switch games with no discount on the video game sale list.

Thanks for the ad posting, Tyrok!

One of the "sales" in the ad this week is the Switch Pro Controller for...$1 off. Why in the blue hell would you even waste space by including that? Christ, Best Buy!
No Red Faction mentioned in the online ad, so if any BB store has it, will they sell it before Tuesday? Not like the "real" street date is the 10th.

As someone who doesn't yet have a Switch, I thought I'd let the thread know that you can only add one of the 4 Switch games advertised as "buy a Switch, get these games half off" to get the discount.

Everything is relative, mind you. For Nintendo, that's what passes for a deal!

It's been a while since I've actually stepped foot into a Best Buy store.

 

Went into one today, and was confused by the layout.  They had movies around the center area of the store as always, but they put the video games section off in one of the corners, and it was pretty sad.  

 

The checkout is similar to customer service now.  Instead of lanes, it's just a desk, and they corral people with those black elastic fences.

 

So weird.  I wonder how long it's been like this.

I think it has to do with the store size since I've seen old, new, and slim floorplans for BB's I've been to. Games back in the corner tend to be an outdated floorplan from what I can tell, as most stores have them local to the movie section with them being just in front of the movies as rows.



#30 ck0

Yeah the games used to be adjacent to the movies, as I remember the store layout from before. 

 

But not only did they separate them, they put them in a corner and what used to be a prominent dept., it seemed to be put in as an afterthought.  It's just one small row per console (PS4, Xbox, etc).  Damn I remember when I first signed up for GCU, you had to do it in-store, they actually had a specific register/till for gaming you could ring out at.

 

Also I dunno if it was because it was Sunday, but there were a ton of blue shirts walking around, like more than necessary.  It wasn't that busy at the store, but you couldn't take a few steps without seeing one.  A few were bunched up in the middle at the cellular kiosks as always, another group of 3-4 chit-chatting.  Over on the far wall was some in black shirts, CSRs for refrigerators or some such.  I even saw a rare neon green shirt (but he could be just some shopper, that looked like he worked there).
