[XB1, PS4] Control $20 @ Target

860

///UPDATE/// It seems like the prices may vary at stores. Eg. FULHAM GARDENS has it for $6

Unsure if this is nationwide as it is a clearance price.

Don’t think it’s ever been this cheap before

Target? Uh uh. Tarjay

    Great price. Just FYI for anyone that doesn’t know, there’ll be an “Ultimate Edition” of Control (base game plus the two DLC’s) released in a few weeks and that is the only version of the game that will get the PS5/Series X optimisation patch. Still no price announced for Australia, but it’s $39.99 in the US.

    • Yeah I was going to pick this one up, but I might wait. Thanks for the reminder :)

    • appreciate the info, knew about the addition, just didn't know when it was out etc

    • Pretty scummy way they have done this - since PC has Ray Tracing already.

    • I've heard even on the PS4 Pro it didn't run perfectly - think it's worth holding off the PS5 upgradeable version? I guess if the DLC is any good or not is also a factor.

      • I played regular PS4 and the performance is okay except after pausing where it'll lag for a few seconds

      • Ran fine on PS4 pro. TV is 55" doesn't have HDR. Still the same pause issue for 1-2secs. Games got a few bugs apparently. I did notice a couple item random generated stat errors had higher % than the next tier version. Nothing of real issue until the 2nd last level. Somehow I triggered a bug where the interaction popup stopped appearing til I loaded again. Then a level breaking glitch which meant I had redo the level. It's happened to others but very rare.
        Def recommend this game if you enjoyed Alan wake or matrix path of neo.

  • Nice price - this is by the same studio responsible for the terrific Alan Wake. As aja12 stated, you need to get the upcoming Ultimate Edition to get the "free" next-gen upgrade.

  • Came here expecting a $20 ps4 controller and was very disappointment.

  • It's an amazing game, intriguing plot and art. Quite long too, in my opinion

  • Oh man, it’s been so long since I’ve seen a clearance shelf (or any shop shelf, really).

    • Enjoy it while it last coz they are closing the Target stores

      • Some, yes. From the Target FAQ: https://www.target.com.au/businessupdate

        How many Target stores are closing?

        There will be 10 to 25 large format Target stores and 50 Target Country stores which will close over the next twelve months. A number of stores will also be converting to Kmart where the store is suitable to do so. All remaining Target stores will continue trading as Target. The network will continue to be reviewed on an ongoing basis to support our transition to a smaller, more focused and more optimised business. Importantly, our online business will still be available 24 hours a day. We’ll be increasing our digital capabilities, so that we can continue to meet growing demand in this space.

  • Few available on PS4 in WA. Call stores to check stock.

  • Poor Melbourne left out :(

  • Not at Target Robina

  • So buy this control and then sell to CEX for $45-$75 as per previous front page deal
    /s because the internet…

  • Doesn't seem to be a way to purchase if in Victoria :(

    • Yep, they haven't listed the item online and the VIC stores (even those which are open for Click and Collect) aren't answering their phones.

      I reckon they'll list it online eventually to get all the VIC stock out.

  • TAKE. CONTROL.

    • It was sooo damn good. Wish you could play it whenever you wanted in the background while still playing the game.

  • $6 at my local.

    • PS4? Don't suppose you got a photo?

      • Link in description

        • Thanks, though I was hoping for a photo of the PS4 version rather than XB1.

  • One copy of Xbox One version remaining at Target Garden City Brisbane as at 2pm 20/8/20. (I picked up the penultimate copy)

  • Fullham Gardens also had The Division 2 XB1 $7.20, Gears of War 5 $9, Ugly Dolls XB1 $3.
    All gone now.
    Probably because it closes for good Aug 22nd.

  • Control devs doubling down on no free upgrade unless you buy Ultimate edition.

    https://controlgame.com/ultimateeditioncommunityblog/

  • Picked up last copy of Control XB1 at Wetherill Park.

    They also have 5 copies of Battlefield V XB1 and I don't know how many copies of Shadow of the Tomb Raider for $7 each.

  • How do I get a list of what Qld stores have it in stock?

  • Loved this game. It's like Alan wake meets matrix path of neo with some dark humour while stuck in a Fallout vault.
