    They have them on their website, yet their in-store selection in nonexistent. The store by me is better than most with their game selection and yet they carry no PC games outside of a few shovelware ones.

    Yes, but ... toysrus.com has the game as available on Oct. 20. :x I've always found getting M-rated games at Toys R Us a crapshoot; games sometimes aren't out on the floor.

    Sam & Max Season 1 for Wii is only $30 so I might see if there are any other DS/PSP games I've been holding out on. This also gives me the perfect excuse to finally buy Ghost Squad, too.

    TRU in general is a very strange sort of place to get games from; they don't really adhere to the same schedule as GameStop, whether it's accidentally or otherwise. The only time I really grab Day 1 releases from there is for B2G1 sales like this, and I almost always never get all the games I want. The last one was Space Invades Extreme, which they didn't have until like two weeks after GameStop did and the sale was over.

    Still, it can't hurt to look around.

    Actually I don't watch much TV, but I guess the few shows that I do watch, they figured they'd best be targetting their market by advertising on them incessantly.

    Every single B2G1 sale I've ever gone to TRU for has been during the release of a major game which they either say they haven't gotten it yet or just claim to have not gotten it yet. It has to be a total bait and switch. Last year was SMG, and for days during the sale they kept saying, "Oh we haven't gotten it yet" or "Our shipment got delayed". Then magically the game came in the day after the deal ended which was DAYS after release. I think they just wanted to get people to come in for Super Mario Galaxies and then pretend not to have it yet.

    That was all DHL's fault, maybe 4 TRUs in the entire US got shipments that day. Ours got there the day after they were supposed to though, so we could still honor the sale, I don't know what happened at the one you were shopping at.

    I wish in some ways there was an actual limit - anytime I've tried to get in on sales like this, eBay vultures have already been in the store and snatched up virtually everything.

    I know. That's the biggest problem with things like this.

    I always try to get in there and get at least something before that happens though... but between TRU's meager game stock and the eBay crowd, it's tough.

    My local TRU has such a paper thin game stock that I don't know if I could find three games I want. I guess I could hope that they get Dead Space in some time that week, but the odds on that aren't always great.

    The site says the 20th, what are the odds of it coming in before that?

    I suppose I'll check this out. I got lucky once in picking up like 10 pretty good GBA games for around $70 a few years ago in a sale that only applied to a handful of TRS's and wasn't advertised at all. Hopefully I'll find something decent this year, the past few haven't been so great.

    Yes, it is open on Columbus Day.

    Classic Controllers are also 40% off, but not Wii Remotes or Wii Nunchucks. Too bad.

    Also of note is that Toysrus has some fantastic games in their bargin bin. 9.99 for Phoenix Wright:Trials and Tribulations or the first Bleach DS game, and 5 bucks for the Fatal Fury PS2 collection.

    I read through the OP but maybe not clearly enough.

    If I buy 3 wii points cards do i get one for free?

    No, it's only 30% off each. The games are buy 2 get 1 free.

    Although you're technically correct, the B2G1 actually gets you 33 percent off of each game for 3 games priced the same, so buying points cards at 30 percent off is pretty much the same thing. :rotate:

    Minamimoto-2.jpg

    So zetta slow!

    So I went to my local TRU and they said they had heard of no such 30% off sale for points cards.

    Awful. My Sunday is ruined.

    Is there some reason that only certain games online are working?

    No More Heroes, Mario Kart Wii, and a few others are not working with the deal, even though the website claims its a sale on ALL games.

    There's also apparently an 'in store only' sale on the PS3, but no details on the site. Anyone know what this is?

    TRU is notorious for their random "not supported" titles on their "ALL GAMES SUPPORTED" sales. There have been a few posts on Consumerist about it.

    Weird. I ordered late last night and it worked with No More Heroes. Looking around the site, lots of games that were working with the deal when it first went up have since been removed.

    I saw a ton of people walking around with Wiis and WiiFits. I think TRU had been stocking units for this week..


    So, I went this morning. Lots of copies of Kirby SuperStar Ultra. Came back this afternoon to get some Points Cards, and every Kirby was sold out! Hah, not so surprised. Also they were down to about 50% stock of Wario Shake It

    I really want Dokapon though and am overbudget this month as is.
