    It looks like a good game, too bad I don't have a PS4

    What?! That was a quick price drop. Hope they do the same with ff xv, hanging on patiently. :)

    I finished this last night. Good price for a good game. Those familiar with ico and sotc will feel right at home, newcomers will definitely struggle with the dated game design choices. Once again Target leading the way for competitive game prices.

      Have to agree, I was pretty pissed off with Target over their GTA V scandal, but Titanfall 2 and Ratchet and Clank for $37 and $29 has made me pretty happy lately

    Nice. I know I was right to not jump on that gamesmen deal :)

    Awesome timing, just grabbed a Pro yesterday :) Thanks OP!

    The backlog is real, this only adds to it. Thanks, I guess. Haha.

    God dammit. Just got it from Gamesmen two days ago for 50.

    Nice that was quick! I hear the sales were poor unfortunately due to massive bugs and camera angle issues. Hopefully they fix it with a patch soon

    The other complaint was that the game feels and plays like a ps2 game, something I personally don't mind.

    Great price nonetheless I'll definitely get it but right now busy with ff xv

      game feels and plays like a ps2 game,

      When I hear that I think it's going to be slow. I think I will have the same sinking feeling I had when I saw Tekken II on PS2 after playing it at the arcades and then I saw how slow it was on PS2 :|

      But I haven't played it and surely this game is worth getting just to see a giant cat take a shit. Haven't played it ;)

      I played the game day one, and there were no massive bugs that I noticed. Camera was only an issue in tight areas, otherwise, didn't have too much of a problem with it.

      Sales for TLG are better than ICO or Shadow of the Colossus, so it's done reasonably well. I'm sure Sony were hoping for more, though.

      Feels and plays like a PS2 game? That's a harsh criticism. Possibly hyperbole. It feels and plays like a Team ICO game, which may not be to everyone's liking, though I'm happy with it. Lighting, physics, and environment are all current gen, barring the occasional low res texture. The animation of Trico is significantly ahead of its time. No game has ever dynamically animated an animal this well, and none will for a long time, because it's damn hard! Seriously done well.

      Any case, it's a brilliant price for the game! I enjoyed it tremendously, and it will be one of the first games I play again when I eventually get a HDR TV.

      TBH I think its the best game on the ps4. I finished it in a couple of sittings - it's rare a game holds my attention like that these days. It's got problems sure but I feel something like the Witcher 3 also had glaring issues (90% of the quests use that horrid detective mode).

  •  

    Great price. Gonna have to get it.

  •  

    Do target keep the copies sealed or remove the disc from the case?

    •  

      generally remove disc from case so as a collectors item.. no deal as a i must have it… deal!

      On their Black Friday games sale, all 3 games I bought were sealed behind the counter, and he started breaking the seals as he was scanning them. I asked him to get new ones to keep them sealed, and he said it was against store policy. I was very confused.

      • +1 vote

        Don't they do that so they can put the sticker/seal over the case to show they've checked the game had a disc (and the right one) in there for dodgy refund purposes?

      • -3 votes

        That's weird.

        If it's to do with return policy, if it's still sealed when you try to return it they can obviously verify it's never been opened. And if it's been opened you won't have the red sticker, so they don't have to accept your return.

        They don't lose anything in keeping it sealed.

        This just saved me the bother. Now I won't bother buying any games from Target.

    •  

      Just ask the staff at the counter for a sealed copy. They once told me they would open and display empty cases on shelves and leave some sealed in the drawers if shelves already have enough empty cases on display.

  •  

    Wow awesome. Even secondhand on eBay goes for more than 50. Definitely get one for the Ps4 PRO

  •  

    Great deal, wanted to get the steel case edition but that's literally double the price.

    Damn I just ordered it online for 54 :'(

  •  

    Well that is definitely a tempting price.

    Knew it! Definite buy for me.

  •  

    Any other good deals op?

    Bought this for 79 when the game came out. Luckily I didn't bother to open the seal package so can return it tomorrow. Thanks for saving me $40 op!

  •  

    Not my luckest day, got it last week for full price :-(

    Please note: this is a game that's both unique and beautiful, but some people(like me) might find it boring and lack of things to do.

    45 bigw right now

    It's been barely less than a month, truly an unbelievable price.

    Meanwhile 1st Party Nintendo games released years ago are still $59-69.

    Let's see if ebgames will price match without a Fight

    Damn!

    Moral of the story in the past months

    Don't buy anything in release

    You will get it for even less in a month time

  •  

    heard the game graphics, control and cameras are shit. thats why it's on sale?

    •  

      I thought the graphics were wonderful. Camera was fine, though in certain areas, it was annoying. Controls were typical of a Team ICO game.

      Final conclusion, if you've ever played ICO or Shadow of the Colossus, you'll be perfectly at home with this game. If you enjoyed playing ICO, you'll love this game.

      •  

        I didn't enjoy those games but understand why people like them. I get annoyed easily by things you have to be willing to forgive with Team ICO games.

        How am I going to find this?

    Please update: out of stock for online orders

  •  

    Well price matching at EB it is, then.

  •  

    definitely picking this up if they have any left in store….. now … when will FF XV come down to $39 as well ;)

  •  

    For those who purchased online, can you let us know if/once Target have notified you it's ready for pickup? Just curious to know how long it takes.

    •  

      From my previous experience, click and collect order is sent from their main warehouse and not pulled from local store stock so it took a few days before I could pick up (previous Uncharted 4 deal).

      •  

        Depends on the store stock level. If there is stock at the store, they will use the store stock first before stock from the warehouse is sent to the store. That's why sometimes if you online order at night, it can be ready for pick up the next day at your local store. This happened for my Paper Mario Wii U order.

      Ordered mine at midnight online and I just got the text now saying I can collect it.
