For a business that once looked like they were abandoning gaming altogether, Target has done a pretty good job of appealing to gamers with some heavy discounts. Their Ebay store offerings before Christmas were some of the best all year, something many of you took advantage of.
They're now apparently in the process of clearing out a good deal of gaming stock, from consoles to games.
The post comes courtesy of OzBargain, where it was revealed that the company has slashed the price on everything to accessories, consoles and games for largely old stock.
The deals are available in-store and online, although once stock is depleted they won't be replenished. It's basically a clearance sale, so you'll want to get moving -- because there are some good offerings.
Xbox One (500GB) Assassin's Creed bundle ($329, down from $499) Xbox 360 (500GB) Console ($149, down from $279) Wii U Premium Splatoon Bundle ($279, down from $359) PS4 (500GB) Disney Infinity 3.0 Star Wars Bundle ($399, down from $419) PS4 (1TB) Star Wars Battlefront Bundle ($479, down from $549) PS3 (500GB) console ($200, down from $399) Xbox One (1TB) Halo 5 Bundle ($399, down from $598) Xbox One Wireless Controller & Play and Charge Kit ($60, down from $89)
The Xbox One deal is pretty tempting by this stage. You can upgrade the hard drive easily enough -- although it still comes down to the age-old problem of what games you want to play.
The wireless controller deal isn't half bad though. 4-port USB hubs are also $5 for both consoles; they're surprisingly useful.
That Splatoon bundle's a bit too high for my liking as well, given how tantalisingly close NX is.
Plenty of surprise bargains here, but you'll want to read through the whole list.
Dragonball Xenoverse PS4 ($40, down from $74) Don Bradman Cricket 14 XBO/PS4 ($50, down from $89) Disney Infinity 3.0 Special Edition Starter Pack PS4 ($59, down from $149) Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 PC ($35, down from $79) Call Of Duty: Advanced Warfare 360/XBO/PS3/PS4 ($20, down from $89) Bloodborne: Game of the Year Edition PS4 ($49, down from $79) Assassin's Creed: Unity PS4/XBO ($15, down from $49) Rayman Legends PS4/XBO ($15, down from $49) Sleeping Dogs: Definitive Edition XBO ($10, down from $23) The Evil Within PS4/XBO ($20, down from $35/$25 respectively) Until Dawn PS4 ($29, down from $89) F1 2015 PS4/XBO ($25, down from $59) Far Cry 4 PS4/XBO ($20, down from $59) Mortal Kombat X PS4/XBO ($30, down from $69) NBA 2K15 PS4/XBO ($25, down from $49) Project CARS PS4/XBO ($30, down from $59) Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor PS4/XBO ($25, down from $49)
Solid offerings. The deals on Don Bradman are quite nice too -- plenty of time to train up before the sequel comes out at the end of the year.
If you're after Amiibo, good news: they've all been slashed to $10, down from $17. That includes figures such as Lucario, Duck Hunt, Mega Man, Marth, Tom Nook, Pikachu, and all the others. No word on whether Target won't restock Amiibo -- you'd think they would at some point -- however, but again you'll have to check local stores for availability.
So that's the full list of most of what's on offer. Anything take your fancy?
