Did they have regular size new 3DSes in the US outside that Mario edition, which I think was a limited edition TRU exclusive?

They were selling them at Walmart for $99 during the Christmas season like three years ago or something. Not sure if they ever made it anywhere else.

I was really tempted, but I figured they’d probably go even lower the next year.

The secondary sources piggybacking off the Bloomberg article were saying before E3 but a few walked that back already.

Ubisoft Store has most of their Switch codes (including some DLC and bundles) on sale, plus a code for $10 off a $15 purchase: FORWARD.

Mind that some games like Scott Pilgrim are currently out of stock. The sale should go on at least until the 12th, and the coupon code expires on the 21st.

Scott Pilgrim is back in stock. I ordered that and the Mario Rabbids Season Pass to finally play the Donkey Kong DLC. Total ended up being $10.

I'm hesitant to buy anything before the E3 deals get revealed next week.

They restocked everything. Last night I ordered Assassin Creed Rebel collection for $10 after the forward code and got $2 worth of gold coins after the redemption. I didn't want to post until I actually for the code.

As a warning, credit card payment seems to go through quickly while my PayPal transaction didn't generate a receipt or code until nearly 12 hours later. Reddit indicates similar experiences for others using apple pay.

Can the code be used more than once or is it one time use per account?

People seem to say you can us it in multiple separate orders. Haven't tried it personally

I’ve seen quite a few articles now questioning the existence of the Pro/Super model … but wouldn’t it make the most sense for Nintendo to announce it first during their E3/Direct and then go into all the games you can play on it?

We know from past mid-generation upgrades from Nintendo that it won’t have a huge number of exclusives for the revised Switch (perhaps a handful), but it’s still a big deal and would be odd for Nintendo to just throw out the upgraded system without much fanfare.

If I were a gambling man, I’d say they announce the new console first and then games that are enhanced by it. I’m still thinking BotW 2 makes a holiday release and it will be heavily tied in with the enhanced performance from the new Switch revision.

Thanks just tried and it worked. Got both assassin's Creed games for $10 each, both came with 200 gold coins. Also grabbed Scott pilgrim and the Mario rabbits season pass for about $10. Scott pilgrim did not include gold coins for some reason but Mario rabbits season pass included 100 gold coins.

I feel like BOTW 2 will be released on the same day as the new Switch and Gamepass is not coming to Switch, but that Master Chief is coming to Smash and that was what Phil Spencer was hinting at.

Could just be Smash, but definitely something brewing between MS and Nintendo.

I believe they the first one they released in the US was the Happy Home Designer (Animal Crossing) one.  That's the one I purchased.  It had all of the interchangable faceplates.

If only they sold codes for things like the Immortals Season Pass for consoles on there.  That would be an amazing deal.

I was thinking the same thing when I was browsing on there. They sell it for PC, but I have it on PS5 so that's no help.

Same here.  I really want to try some of the DLC, guess we'll just have to wait until the next PS store sale for it.

I discovered that people on Slickdeals were using the UbiSoft deal to buy Switch digital games last night.  I was able to order Scott Pilgrim, UNO, Rayman: Definitive Edition, and both Assassin's Creed games for Switch along with most of the Far Cry PC titles yesterday. 

 

My UNO code still hasn't shown up yet, and I will probably never play any of the Far Cry games since I have them all on Xbox, but UbiSoft is offering amazing deals with this sale.  I'm sure the company's seeing more purchases in the past few days than it's seen in years.

Yeah im not sure if we'll see this again from the ubi store. Bought $30 worth of stuff earlier. But mostly pc content. Switch is a great platform for stuff like rayman and child of light.. but would be my last choice for playing an open world ubi game.

I only bought the Assassin's Creed games because they've never been that low on the eShop or at retail.  As usual, I don't have the room to download either of them on my micro SD card, but I figured that they will probably not go that low again.  I might add the Mario Rabbids season pass, but the base game has never seemed interesting to me even though it's been on sale a hundred times before.

 

And I got a bunch of free Lenovo PCs at work that were about to be recycled a while back, so I should probably download the Far Cry games after I wipe and reformat them since I now have the space to do so.  But I've never actually used the Ubi PC client before.

So Assassin's Creed Black Flag is the first assassin's creed game I've ever played. Judge all you want, won't change reality for me. And speaking of reality:

Imagine my extreme confusion when traveling to a restricted area and getting "desynchronized" with flashy computer effects in pirate times, and then looking in the menus and seeing "end simulation." Wait, what?

Not only is that dumb, it's not explained anywhere. What's going on here?

Assassin's Creed has some dumb modern day plot where some other character is hooked up to some VR-like stuff so they can experience the life of an assassin in the past.  Or something.  It's a common thread between all of the games, though I think that character changes eventually (I've played the Ezio trilogy and Odyssey, and the modern day characters were different).

There's a drug that somehow allows you to experience the lives of your ancestors through your DNA or some junk like that. Half of my knowledge of this franchise comes from the equally bad movie with Michael Fassbender.

 

I mean, the gameplay is pretty good. Just don't think too much about how impossible the story is.

Ha, yeah that would be confusing. I’ve not played any of the games but I’ve gleaned over the years that in the AC games the “action”/“historical” parts are a simulation of sorts, and the “modern time”/“boring” parts explain why you’re spending all your time in that simulation. Something about Templars being bad, not sure how being in a simulation fixes that though. Oh well, I have less than zero interest in finding out.

Seems to be the framing device for the entire series of games. Maybe it was the ending of the first game? Dunno.

Kinda silly. Nothing feels lower stakes than playing a simulation inside a video game. On the other hand it's pretty fun and I'm only interested in gameplay.
