Thanks! I got an order in since I don't expect a relisting for pre-orders from Best Buy.  Hope I'm wrong, since I'm not a big fan of paying $5.99 to ship something with an already inflated price.  I'll keep an eye out for other retailers between now and release.

I already had a copy of 3D World / Bowser's Fury pre-ordered and used $40 worth of certificates on it.  I cancelled that and the points came back shortly after.  Reordered for only $10.61 out of pocket!

Still glad I got pre-orders in for Bayonetta 3 and Metroid Prime 4 before mine ended early last year. At least those are already paid for since I used PayPal, so I don't think there is a risk of getting up charged.

Saw one of the new X-Men Vs. Street Fighter 1UP Cabs at a local Walmart I was at.

Would've picked it up but remembered it wasn't the version with Marvel Super Heroes Vs. Street Fighter & Marvel Super Heroes: War of the Gems.

Is that version only exclusive to Best Buy?


Yes, it's only available there and comes bundled with the stool.

Absolutely horrible. There needs to be some type of legislation. I would suggest a law that any product that has been released can only go up for auction after 120 days AFTER THE INITIAL RELEASE DATE. This would put a HUGE DENT in the scalping industry.

Thoughts

You want a law against capitalism? Don't get me wrong, misleading a buyer into buying a box is ridiculous. However, if people weren't willing to pay the inflated scalping prices, there wouldn't be money to be made. The people dumb enough to pay 2-3x retail for anything are a big part of the problem.

I got an order through for a bundle and then immediately had second thoughts and cancelled.  I just want the console right now.

So having one in your cart doesn't really matter?

Doesn't seem to.

Anyone have an Xbox Series X in their cart on Microsoft.com and it keeps giving you an error that "there was an issue with your payment method"?

 

I know it is probably because it is out of stock but I just wanted to ask. 

I've been in the same situation for over a week.  I remember seeing someone post on here that the easiest way to determine whether or not it is in stock is by whether tax gets applied during checkout.  If it doesn't, that means OOS and the purchase won't go through.

sony backwards compatibility fail: only offers PS4 and PS4Pro.     If we are celebrating playstation, they should have included PS1,2,3 backwards compatibility to compete better with Xbox

While backwards compatibility is a "nice to have", I have never seen it as an absolute need.  If you want to still play old games, use your old hardware.  Even Xbox BC is limited and they've stopped adding compatible games.  I sold my PS4 Pro since I can still play those games on PS5 and have a fat PS3 for the rest of Sony's catalog.

With it looking like I'll get between $720 and $948 in Kohls cash / rewards by spending nothing, this is by far the deal of the year!  IMO, it's still a contender for those that actually get it fulfilled.

just a joke, i couldn't care less how many you buy. i just find it weird that people feel they have to justify their purchases to strangers on the internet, that's all.

hell, free kohls cash in the end, maybe people should have ordered more

Definitely a bonus. At this rate, I'll have $720 in Kohls Cash.

Family accounts allow you to add up to 8 users to the same subscription.  I have myself, both of my daughters, and a few friends / co-workers on mine.  If you have even one friend you can split this with, it's a money saver.

Just got my 2 pre-orders from Walmart delivered. They were in boxes for those wondering. My copy of Miles Morales still hasn't shipped and my card hasn't been charged for one of these.
