Coffee Shop! Best video game sale(s), this week!?

Coffee Beans
If you're a Wii U owner and planning on grabbing one of the many new games releasing on the system this week, you might want to visit or your local Target store. If you haven't seen it already, Target is running a "Buy Two, Get One Free" video game sale, on select games for the Wii U and the other consoles.

As for new Wii U games releasing for the system this week that are included in the sale, there are four from my count:
1) LEGO City: Undercover is available today for the Wii U with a MSRP of $49.99.
2) Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate is releasing tomorrow, March 19th, at a MSRP of $59.99.
3) Need for Speed: Most Wanted is also releasing Tuesday, with a MSRP of $59.99 as well.
4) The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct will be finding its way to store shelves Tuesday as well, but has a lower MSRP of $49.99 at most retailers, though you can pre-order right now and get it for just $37.49 from as I wrote about last week.

Again, if you want to see the games included just visit this Buy Two, Get One Free on Select Video Games at link, and see if there are any games available online or perhaps in stores that you might be interested in.

Depending on which Wii U games, or other system(s) games, you are interested in, you could be saving anywhere from $30 to $60 this week, while adding three new games to your collection.

Are there any other stores running a "Buy Two, Get One Free" video game sale this week, or any video game sale that is as good as, or better than, the one on and in Target stores this week? If so, please share it in the comments below!

Also, are any of you planning on taking advantage of the Target sale this week? If so, what games are you planning on buying? For us, it depends if I venture out to our Target store tomorrow or not. If/when I do, I may end up with two new Wii U games for our collection: LEGO City: Undercover and perhaps The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct (still debating on games though).


  1. Last weekend Gamestop had a buy 2 used, get 1 free, and I partook of that to beef up my Vita collection a bit. Considering my recent buying binge I'm probably good for awhile.

  2. Can't believe you're one of the people helping the video game industry continue to crash, by BUYING USED! *some people

    Actually, the GameStop sales of that fashion are really good times to look for older, harder to find games.

    Thanks for the feedback!

  3. LOL - Just saw this. :) I do a pretty good mix of used and new, just depends on what it is and the value. Ni no Kuni I picked up new, but I did nab some older used games at the same time when I was at Gamestop. Now I have a bit more flexibility, but I tell you what - back when I had my ps1 and ps2? It was almost all used games. Boke college kid w/ a family - my pickings were pretty slim. Makes me curious about these Nextbox rumors with the always on DRM and installing to the hard drive 1 time only stuff

  4. "Makes me curious about these Nextbox rumors with the always on DRM and installing to the hard drive 1 time only stuff..."
    Yeah, gonna be a weird thing if true. My internet is odd enough when it wants to work right, and throwing in always needing it to work when wanting to play a game that might not be online...just not a fan of that.

    I actually wonder if the PS4 is the same way, as the only answer seemed to be an indirect answer to the question, and not a simple "Yes." or "No."

    It kind of makes me wonder if EA knows about the PS4 and Nextbox being "always on" for playing, and that's why don't count the Wii U as "next gen" or whatever their comment was a bit ago? I mean since EA likes the DRM and always on stuff, and they are clearly the market leaders right now at launching single player focused games that require you to always be connected without any issues, perhaps they know. -_-

    Thanks for the reply!


Keep the comments clean. Rated "E" for Everyone. :)
