I can confirm that Amazon is matching all these prices as well.

Not much of a sale... I'm confident that Collection of Mana and FFXII will be $20-25 everywhere for Black Friday.

Also saw they're selling Civilization VI on "sale" for $30... Funny because they had it on an actual sale for $20 a couple months ago.

What’s your guess for BF pricing on Sekiro?

Tempted on Collection of Mana but my backlog is fierce and I can also see it maybe getting a tad cheaper. Also, I wish FFX12 for Xbox was on sale for that price. While replaying it on the go would be fun I personally would prefer seeing it in 4K. It may not be a huge jump over the Switch version but I would really like to see how that one plays on an X1X.

So much for that limited physical release of Collection of Mana, eh SE?

 

Regardless I'm enjoying a revisit to Trials of Mana / SD3.  Even though I'm forced to use the ridiculously laggy in-game menu.

Who would've guessed a collection of 3 roms on an emulator that a company mass produced and put the guise of "limited" release would be in mass quantities and quickly dropping price due to sagging sales?

I'll second $24.99 for BF, wouldn't be surprised at $19.99 either.

I'd also guess $20 - $25. 

 

Really most, if not all of these games will be $40 or less on Black Friday and the ones that will be around the $30 - $40 price range will be more recent releases like Control.

I also want the XB1 version, however I believe both ps4 and xbox versions are in 4k; the difference is the xbox version is the only one that does 60fps. Thats why I want it.

I’d be happy with $25 but wouldn’t be surprised if it’s at $30 by BF and then drops to $20 after the new year.

I thought I was happy getting The Evil Within 2 for $25 and Dark Souls III for $30, only to find I would barely touch them because of my backlog, and they can now be found for $20.

As fun as Sekiro looks, I've got way too much backlog to work through.

Might as well wait for BF at this point.

Neither is 4k.

 

PS4 Pro gets a slight bump to 1440p resolution (not 4k) but stays at 30 fps.

 

X1X stays at 1080p but runs at a nice 60 fps.

Lots of clearance going on in stores lately to make room for the holidays. Prices can vary widely from other stores and the website of course.

 

Just picked up We Happy Few Deluxe (XB1) for $15 today which is less than the standard version (and $8 less than the website).

Anything dedicated, like an endcap or is it hunt and peck?

Most likely hunt and peck but every store is different. I know some just shove all their games in a shark cage near the registers which will make it impossible to figure out what is on clearance.

except for those of us who still have GCU and some stuff like FFXII on Switch isn't as widely available as to wait for BF

Yep, I fell for 'limited' when it was announced as well since Nintendo has a track record of limited JRPG releases (Xenogears) but should have known better that S-E tends to be more available these days.

Damn. Well next time I'm out that way I'll have a look-see.

Grabbed the Collection of Mana and also noted that Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows Of Valentia for 3DS was $22 in store instead of the $34 on the website, obviously ymmv.

Had never played a FE game before 3 houses but really enjoyed that

GCU worked on Mana, not FE

Yeah, GCU works on online sale and clearance game prices, but does not work on in store games marked as clearance.

Wonder if FF XII will go any lower than this price + GCU ... doesn’t seem like something that will get a reprint for BF, but who knows.

Someone should have it for $20, $25 max as it's been $34.99 a couple of times already at BB. Target typically has a couple and Walmart too that jump out like "wow that's a really solid price" and typically they differ from everyone else on that one to two titles.

Does Best Buy still do a Buy Two, Get One Free promo around this time of year?

Dude! I was just thinking the same thing. Hoping Switch would be included but that may be a stretch.

I think the last time they did one was about 2 years ago.

Seemed like Nintendo games always had a separate sale that was B1G1 50% off, which isn’t quite as good. Guess we’ll find out in a few weeks.
