  • Wow Kingdom hearts $55 on release day…. Why so dirt cheap lol

    • It's not a full priced game - $69.95 rrp.

    • It's a remake

      • remake of a remake ;)

          Yeah, its just a remake of a generic hack n slash, mostly overhyped for the "anime" style final fantasy characters with disney stuff thrown in.

          We've seen alot of remasterings of titles to pad out retail shelves due to there being less big developers left. Might as well just stealth release the games without upgrades on digital stores. Additional DLC doesnt really make it worth much either. Let new independent developers release more at retail I say.

        • @BNN: I agree with the idea in theory, but in execution, indie devs have a lot less money and can only produce so many discs. While I'd love more store shelves dedicated to stuff like Fast Racing Neo and Steamworld Dig, at the end of the day, those guys only have so much money, and like I found when I was after some business cards yeeears back, it's cheaper to make stuff in bulk. A million discs and covers may only cost X amount, while a limited run of a hundred thousand or so many cost almost as much, which then means they have to pass the cost onto consumers and then consumers just buy the digital versions anyways. SquareEnix and all the others can easily throw down a bunch of money on remaster discs and shit, and then sell the games at a lower cost than the average indie dev could, and then their re-releases sell. I love Fast Racing Neo, but I'd pay 20 odd bucks for it digital at any given time, than 50 bucks RRP for the disc, as much as I want the disc.

          I'm all for re-releases too though, just not with an inflated price tag the likes of Lego Harry Potter. Gravity Rush was a good example I think. They took a really good Vita game with a few years on it that a lot of people missed out on on account of not being one of the twelve people who bought a Vita, upped the graphics enough that you notice but not so much that it feels different, threw in all the DLC (which admittedly would not be worth anything on it's own), put it on a nice shiny disc, and charged 30 bucks for it. That shit I can get down with, and is why I have both versions of it. If they came out asking 70 odd like Harry Potter, I'd tell them to stuff it and stick with the Vita version.

          @TheDukeOfNukem: A good point. Yeah, i see why indies do it in such small numbers, its a shame as some really deserve that wider audience sometimes… Occasionally they find that middle-ware publisher that publishes it, which is cool.

          I see retail re-releases of handheld on home system slightly different and i would agree with that a bit more. To me, its a slightly different scenario. Gravity Rush is alright, 2 seems to be better but i appreciate the type of gameplay. I dunno, even if the console one did cost a bit more, i would kind of understand as i dont know all the ins and outs of dev. cost. It can be complicated…

          Generally given that its going to an entirely different market, i would give Gravity Rush a pass. I would only be against visual bumps in that scenario if it took alot of time and investment. Spending a ton of time or money trying to make it 4k, or whatever the new res is, too me that would seem unnecessary, especially given the art style speaks for itself.

          Nintendo Wii U saw alot of stealth releases of handheld games (with touch controls optimized for Wii u) on the eshop you couldnt experience on home systems previously. Same visuals for the most part, which didn't really bug me in such cases.

          I probably wouldnt buy though if i had the handheld or home version already.

    • By the looks of the cover, it's Kingdom Heats II.8 not 1.5+2.5

  • Looking at that catalog, I wonder how well this new series of Skylanders is doing? Was talking to a target staff member and she was saying they really don't like stocking those toys to life games now due to so much left over stock they have to put at clearance prices. Seems like they stock as little as they can of the current series.

    • To be honest, Imaginators did way better than the last game in the series. Due to this, we haven't been able to keep up with the demand on figures as the supplier didn't produce as many as previous years.

      The discounted figures are from Last years SuperChargers game which did poorly

      • Good news for at least one of the TTL franchises then! Was worried it would get the axe as well.

        • It still may get the axe, Activision has said that there wont be a new Skylanders game this year.

      • Do you think the order quantities have been much less though? I noticed lower stocked amounts at EB and Big W too.

        • +1 vote

          Well order quantities are dictated by how much the supplier is producing. If they are only making a portion of the quantities from previous years then there isn't much that the retailers can do to get extra stock

        • @boratsagdiyev: surely target would look at last years sales and think, crap we still have about 1000 units of that nitro series helicopter, theres no way we are ordering that much this year even if the supplier has plenty of stock

      •  

        Ironic. Probably got a little boost being a Nintendo Switch launch game maybe + selling on the other three. I dunno.

  • Ignore my post, I answered my own question :)

  • Neon Switch

    Neon or Nintendo?

  • Love some of these prices!

  • Yooka-Laylee is made by ex-Rare devs & the main villain is a bee based on Donald Trump. That's worth $45 alone.

    • Yooka Laylee is a must buy.

    • PS4 & XBONE versions set to release on 11/4, what about the WiiU version?

      • The Wii U version was cancelled in December.

        • No kidding. Not even an eShop release?

        • @durd0008: Well that's sad, understandble - but unfortunate.

          Devs need to clothe and feed their families at the end of the day, so why would they release it on a discontinued console?

          Oh well. PS4 version it is.

        •  

          @Orpheon: Thats just a PR fake news story. They cancelled the Wii U version because they thought they'd sell more on the Switch, very dishonest. Would have been better to sell on both. Alot of their fans/Rare fans werent happy about it as that was the platform most had chosen. Was supposed to be the lead development platform too, so to speak….

          On top of that they apparently might still have to wait before they actually release the switch one.

          They involved themselves in controversy by removing the youtuber JonTron from the game over politics. A long time promoter of the games apparently. They've put themselves in alot of controversy with the game, with jabs towards Microsoft within it, which apparently arent entirely truthful.

          Im leaning more towards Snake Pass, looks a bit more creative but i might get YL a bit later on.

        • @BNN: Playtonic weren't the only ones to drop JonTron. 'Politics' is putting it lightly - the dude had some honest revelations about his deep-seeded xenophobia and doubled-down when confronted with his own lineage.

          @Orpheon:

          I don't know the entire context of what was said, so i can't entirely comment on what he said…

          Apparently one of the villains is based on "Trump". Hmmm, seems both of them want to focus on different areas of the political spectrum.

          Sometimes its better to be light with politics and not taking things to serious, these things backfire. Video games with politics always seem to polarize, minus Saints Row4 which took things lightly.

  • Finally picking up Lego Force Awakens!

  • Will this be in-store only or also online?

  • Great, litteraly just came back from Target now having paid $79 for Ghost Recon and I see this post…Argh!!!

  • Missed out on the $489 PS4 Pro deal, any chance we're going to get a sale like that again anytime soon or am I better off just buying that package deal and selling off those games? Only interested in playing Persona 5 and maybe Horizon.

    • You could get $60 for Ghost Recon, $30 for Watch Dogs 2 and $40 for Infinite Warfare on Ebay, at least.

      That's what I'm thinking about doing.

      Edit: Though, if all you're interested in are those games, you probably don't need a Pro in the first place?

  • Interesting that Mario Kart 8 Deluxe has no price on it (guess it's a month away) but that it still advertises it.

    OP any info on the price of it? Thinking of getting it again on Switch, after the Wii U. Target had a great deal when it came out on the Wii U back in 2014 - $64 + free digital Wii U game.

    •  

      I wouldnt to be honest, outside of the dlc, new battle modes/battle tracks, double items, there doesnt seem to be much difference from the Original.
      Not sure how much effect hd rumble has within the actual gameplay, but i heard (and i could be wrong) that its less involved then 1 2 Switch…

      I'd just stick with the Wii U one for now. Unless you really want a version on the go.

    • Given its RRP is $79.95, they'll probably sell it for $69.

      • Thanks yeah I agree it's not worth it to buy again but the mobility is quite good, finally having an HD Mario Kart 8 on the go (best Mario Kart yet once the Battle Mode gets properly implemented). Also my Switch is dying for some first party games outside of Zelda…

        Would be good if HD rumble gets utilised well, maybe explains why it's taking so long to release.

        $69 would be an okay price, hope it goes for $59 (unlikely).

  • is Neon Switch new stock (which fix the unlikely joycon issue)?

    • it's literally a piece of foam insert

      • That's what they used for returns. Apparently new Joycons don't have the issue, and can be identified by different product code inside.

      • Fun fact, you have no idea what you're talking about. The issue had nothing to do with sensor bars. It's a wireless issue, not IR.

        No modern wireless technology should drop out because of the controller is behind your back. The Xbox controller can work from other rooms.

        Nintendo have made terrible hardware (yet again) with an excellent game (the only thing moving the systems).

  • Already platinum's Star Wars Lego on Vita but for 20 I might grab the better PS4 version as well. Thanks OP!

  • Looking forward to Persona 5! Wait and see if Big W does a cheaper launch price, don't care too much for steel books

    • I'm gutted I couldn't get the take you heart edition, but I'm glad target is getting the steel book, saves 20 bucks compared to eb/jb. might drop it on the dlc as they include the music from other games. there are usually only 2 different songs for general battles (not boss/dungeons) in persona, so the addition of others can stop it getting stale.

  • $25 for dishonoured 2 is an absolute steal!

  • -1 vote

    This post was helpful, thanks for the bargain listings.

  • not even going to bother with a price match on persona 5. Target opens at 7am, JB at 9am. The wait for this game has been excruciating, the earlier I can have it the better

  • Upvote for good Kingdom Hearts release price.

  • For that price I think I might nab Ghost Recon. I was on the fence during beta but it's reasonable at that cost - though I'll see how I'm feeling with ME:A by then. Still can't put that down.

  • If anyone is after Playstation VR there was like 8 of them at Target Caroline Springs.

  • Holy crap was about to drop $70 on the PS3 lego dimensions, my daughter will be stoked with this thanks!

  • Sorry to be a noob, but is the PS4 Lego Dimensions starter pack the one that usually costs around $150?

  • woo. persona. thanks borat!

    • OP wasn't referring to the Xbox One as a brand.

      OP was referring to the other Xbox One bundle out there, where the console + mass effect + Forza could be had for about $300 at Big W and JB…

      …compared to Target's console + mass effect + Forza + movie for $369

  • Pleasantly surprised that Target is selling Persona 5, was worried all the local copies would be at ridiculous prices. I noticed that JB has quietly dropped their pre-order/launch price from $99 to $79.

    Wonder if Big W will join the fight…

    • $99 for a game on release date is way expensive….

      After reading on the FFXV discount (eventhough it was a price error) a lot of people grabbed before it was taken down. Dropped to $19 from like $79.

    • Not in their catalogue this week so not too sure…

      • Yeah, Big W and Target are usually pretty tight-lipped until very close to release dates (whereas JB and EB throw up a pre-order page on their website as soon as a logo exists for an upcoming game).

  • Stardew Valley is a fantastic game, highly recommend for hours and hours of pleasant fun.

      Just a clone game of Harvest Moon series that they slightly reskinned for the pc audience, now they're throwing it to consoles. Think the original and rune factory are better games to be honest.

  • Was wondering if you can order Persona 5 online Steelbook $79 and get it picked up in Sydney

    • You won't be able to pre-order from Target, but you should be able to do click & collect online on the day of release (next Tuesday) and choose whichever store is most convenient. I don't know how long that process takes though, not sure if it can be collected same day.

  • Is the ps4 pro bundle able to be put on layby?

  • dishonored 2 is yummy like a banana pancake.

  • wanted to get PS4 but not sure if i have time to play

  • With the Lego Dimensions Starter Pack, does the supergirl character come in the PS4 box or as an extra item they give you when you buy it ?

    • I think i remember seeing previously boxes with the Supergirl figure packed in, so I think that's the case.
