b4b, sold out already?

Something is definitely off.  If it was sold out, it would say "sold out/unavailable nearby" in the "add to cart" field.  Besides, within an hour after it simply disappeared from the system entirely. 

 

On a side note, I bet the first Switch game to pop up (and propbably only), will be Just Dance, as it was a DotD not too long ago for $14.99.

It's not unheard of for stores to remove the items from their inventory during a sale and then right after the sale bring them back out on the floor at full price. I noticed that even Target does that sometimes.

10 days of overstock. And yet the uneducated masses still fall for it every time.

So far this is not the case, unlike past versions of this sale. Nothing they are offering is particularly well stocked and it's being cut off before every store sells out. The stuff they probably really want to get rid of is still too new to be offered so low.

I've seen it at target, and it's intentional/malicious. Way back when 3DS first party games were $5 at target, such as Zelda games, they sold out in stores and the shelves were empty by saturday afternoon. I went to the same store Sunday morning to pick something up and the game section was stocked with the then $5 games and were now at $39.99 MSRP. There's no truck delivery on a Sunday morning, they were holding back stock to wait out the advertised sale.

Intentional? Sure.

that 5 $ sale was so awesome. Wish they'd do another one of those on ps4 and such games once they start to get rid of them.

I woke up a touch late concerned I might have missed a good deal. That was not the case.

I suppose I define overstock as product worth more off the floor; not necessarily in bulk quantities.

It has a free PS5 upgrade (that is a pain in the ass to find) so it's a $10 PS5 game essentially.

 

Also with trade boost a set of Vanguard on PS4/XB1 was a 75% trade flip to GameStop.

So far it's holding value. Estimate they gave for pickup was in two days for me so fingers crossed it works out on Tuesday.

My guess is some of these were meant to be part of the daily $10 sale for the rest of the week but someone pushed the wrong button. :-

The Evil Dead game is $10 off.  I think someone got it backwards on that one.

What’s funny is Amazon price matched evil dead for a bit

Yeah, more than likely it's the usual oopsie of making something $5-10 total instead of that amount off the full price. Most of those get fixed within an hour of going live though instead lasting long enough for Amazon to price match.

Well, you weren't far off. The only thing was the Fortnite Minty Legends bundle. Total bust for Switch.

What a dookie sale.

 

I really didn't expect much, but other than the trade flip for Vanguard, this sale was a total waste of time.
