Anyone know hows the Cobra Kai game? Only thing that caught my eye here. If it's not a Ninja Gaiden clone I'll be disappointed. Must be trash to be on sale like that so soon but the show itself is straight fire.

I can never find Sonic Mania PLUS for a good cheap price. I don't want regular Sonic Mania dammit!

If Forza Horizon 4 is backward compatible on PS5, I'm getting it!

As in years past, there will be more games than shown in the ad.

 

According to the ad:

 

$9.99 games - over 50 games

$14.99 games - over 60 games

$24.99 games - over 50 games

$29.99 games - over 30 games

But don't be fooled by the wording. Over 50 games counts NFS for the Switch, PS4 and Xbox One as 3 individual games.

Yeah, mostly likely.  But I still think it's worth pointing out that there will be some titles that aren't shown.  For example, only 6 $9.99 titles are shown (with "over 50 games" advertised), so there must logically be more unique games at that price point even if factoring in 2x-3x for platform repeats.

I’m going to go out on a limb and guess that the other games not shown will be the endcap games that Targets have a bunch of.

The reason I think this is I just got some endcap games that were also manually overridden to 70% off. These was not normal clearance games and they specifically told me they were on sale. I even got the b2g1 free promo to work.

Yes going by past form there are going to be a lot more games in the 14.99 section. Target does this every year, usually hiding the actual desirable titles!

Underwhelming so far; hopefully the unadvertised deals are better.

The ad showed that the B2G1 deal will be active as well. Will it likely stack with the game deals?

Just a heads up:

 

The first party switch games in this ad are $30 next Wednesday 7pm est on walmart.com.  Also a few other games are cheaper as well.

If there were any doubts whether consumer interest in physical media for games and movies/TV was on a steep decline, the Target ad certainly helps drive it home. I imagine we'll see fewer and fewer big sales or eveb much attention to them (why waste ad space?) after this BF.

Thr return of the B2G1 is nice, at least. Might go back and pick off a couple more I was eying on.

The only move you have is Sweep the Leg.

I wouldn't say that's it. Stores (Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Gamestop, etc.) have been trying to clear space for next gen consoles for months. Manufactures aren't making new copies of old gen games either. So this BF we weren't going to see as many games, only whatever stores are trying to clear out that they didn't months ago. 

 

Doesn't help how big newer systems are. They take up a lot of shelf space that stores needed to make room for. 

 

So it isn't that people are going digital more, stores just don't want old inventory and need more space for newer consoles / games.

Hoping this comes to EA Play sooner than later, a la Game Pass but not sure how long it will take. Plenty of games for me in the meantime though, too many in fact lol.

You have a good point about clearing inventory.

The pricing by everybody but Best Buy is counter to the point.

Best Buy has been clearencing their games section for the last 3 months in store. There is a thread about it here.

The percentage of total video game sales sold digitally has increased every single year since 2009 to 2020.

 

 This is the very definition of people are going digital more.
