So this looks like it was a silent sale. I stopped by my location in Deptford NJ last night and the shelf tag was marked $59.99. I had them price check and sure enough, $39.99.

Here's the Reddit article that showed me this deal.

Curious if this is still the case today though.  I see they have them in stock at my local Best Buy...

Went today, the price is still active. Based on the price tag, I don’t think it’s ymmv anymore.

I accidentally read this thinking it was Xenoblade 2. But Xenoblade 1 for $40? Good deal.

Thanks for the confirmation.  Say the price tag shows $39.99 now?  I'm hoping to make it to BB tomorrow as it's too late for me today.

Yes, I tried to attach a picture to my post, but it only shows up on the mobile site. Here

So, if you order online for store pickup do they adjust the price?

I can confirm that it was $39.99 at my store. The tag still said $59.99, but it rang up as $39.99.

Hopefully it hold until tomorrow or it was just an earty price adjustment for this week. Pretty much only other Switch game I have wanted sub 40 that I do not have.

GDI, I have too large of a backlog but always heard good things. I've played exactly one game on our Switch so far so I really should be getting that ROI. :S

Normally I wait for games to go cheaper than this but I'm pretty sure Xenoblade is one of those games you're not gonna find for much less than that. Even if it is just a port.

Exactly the reason I jumped and got it.

Purchased this earlier. Skipped Pokémon since I just can’t get into them.

Thanks op! Xenoblade was $40 at my store too .

I also found Control deluxe edition ps4 is $17.99.

I know control was $10 ymmv at Wal-Mart, but i can never get walmart deals. As always, ymmv because these are in store only and i have seen different prices from different stores.

Thanks op. Picked up a copy today. Never played this series. Hopefully I’ll like it. Been a while since I played a jrpg. Hopefully it’s turn based 😀

This is one of the MMO inspired games, you just turn on auto attack, and spam your abilities when they come off cooldown.  But with none of the gambits from FF12, so you can't just let the game play itself.

I thinks it’s me. I just don’t like modern jrpgs. Around 2010 they became more action oriented and less about tactics. I’ll still give it a go.

My local store had twenty-five copies. They must've thought it'd be really popular for some reason.

I finished this a few weeks ago.  It was a 60 some hour chore IMO.  I never got more than 3-4 hours into the original version.  Got too side tracked with side quests (see what I did there?)

 

I was able to finish the DE due to the quality of life enhancements.

 

I booted up Future Connected for an hour and decided that I had no interest in trying to finish that.

 

Maybe some day I'll give Xenoblade Chroncles 2 or The Golden Torna a go.
