Is this confirmed at all? If so there better be a Fzero GX port.


GX was on Gamecube.

Does anyone know the prices for Fire Emblem Fates: Conquest and Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright? I can't add them to cart to see it.

 

edit - I see someone said they are $24.99 a few posts above.

Yeah, you could have gotten her several more games she could have ignored!

Thanks for the posts. Got Shin Megami Tensei for $5. Own everything else. Very pleased to get this so cheap.

My store had already pulled the stock off the floor, but I was able to have them grab in back for me: NES Remix, Mario 3D Land, LoZ: LBW and Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon.

If anyone else decides to go to their local Best Buy store to pricematch, don't waste your time! The register automatically blocks the request because the price is too low. Wasted an hour and got nothing. I'm sure other retailers have similar blocks in place.

Looks like I waited too long to go to my local target for SMT. Showing up as out of stock now. I don’t really need SMT:A (as I already have SMTIV) but it’s $5.

I’ll try another target tomorrow after work.

Looks like the $5 ones are pretty depleted. Glad I picked up a few this morning.

Got my Best Buy (via online chat) to match NES Remix, Was the only $5 game I wanted that my Best Buy actually listed they had. Target online said my store had it too but they couldn't locate it in store.

Picked up Fire Emblem Fates: Birthright for $24.99, Super Smash Bros for $24.99, Ultimate NES Remix for $4.99, and Project X-Zone 2 for $4.99. 

 

Yokai Watch 2: Psychic Specters and Metroid: Samus Returns are both $24.99 each but I already had them so I left them on the shelf.

Best Buy has an online chat? Since when?

Damn I was out by Target today. I've wanted most of these games so that's a shame

How did that work? The manager just overrides it
And types the reason in the narrative box in my store in the past. Did that person at the register ask for one or simply shoot you down on their own.

I wonder if that is new. I got them to price match a copy of Codename Steam from Gamestop that was around $5 with zero issue.

The Target I went to appeared to be picked over except for both Zelda games, but I had them check in the back and ended up getting NES Remix, Luigi’s Mansion DM, and Minecraft (I know it’s the worst version). I was hoping to find more $5 games, but I’m pretty happy.

It wouldn't allow the manager to override. She did call over the manager, and the employees nearby were a bit salty about the price being so low, but the manager said "Do it for him, and if anyone else asks for them, don't do it." She did tell me that there was a lowest price listed that the system would allow - I think it was $16 for Zelda: Link Between Two Worlds.

I haven't had issues with pricematching either until now. Codename Steam was already an old game when GS had it for $5, right? Do you remember how much BB was selling it for?

Target here seemed to have pulled all the 3DS games from the shelf and shoved them on an endcap, so I assume this is the end of 3DS at Target. I found none of the $5 games, I assume they were already picked over by resellers.

Yeah that how it always was. That lowest price allowed is overridden by a true manager. Based on what you said originally, it sounded like the manager refused you as well as the register. Sounds like that manager wants the register person to BS future customers into thinking it cant be done

Lol they had the games tucked away in some other case. Not sure if they were planning on moving them to the back, or an employee put them there, or they forgot they were there (seems like the least likely of the three since there were pretty much JUST discounted 3ds games)...

Same thing happened to me. Luckily the target next door had the games I wanted.

Picked the wrong day to sleep in past 11. Still managed to get most of what I wanted though.

 

First tried to get BB chat working and it wouldn't load for some reason. Then went to 2 targets and 2 BBs that happen to both be by each other. Only found 1 copy ALBW at Target. At first BB, I tried to pricematch OoT, NES Remix, and 3d marioland. They said Mario was out of stock so they couldn't do that one even though I see it as in stock on the website at some Targets in the area. The other 2 both came up with the notice that they couldn't be discounted more than 50%. A manager came over and created a $10 GC and marked each game to 9.99. He then used the GC on the purchase so I was able to get each game for $5. At second BB, tried to match Marioland and Luigi's Mansion and they said one was out of stock but didn't mention which one. They got the 50% notice, so they got a manager and the manager said they can't pricematch at all if the game is below $10 because it's below their cost for the game.

 

Went home and tried chat again. Didn't work in Chrome still, but tried Edge and it worked no problem. The CS agent took awhile, but matched Marioland no problem. I'm still on the fence about Luigi's Mansion so I haven't tried that. I did try Donkey Kong, but the only version BB has is digital and they won't match Target's physical version.

Really hoping this means more clearanced 2DSs. Been thinking of upgrading my OG 3DS but I don't have much of a need to at the moment.

I think this is a new thing. Check out nny's post below: the manager created $10 gift cards to knock the prices down since the computer wouldn't let him get past the 50% warning. Have you seen that warning before?
