    It is cheaper at Big W than at EB Games.
    • Big W: $189 plus Selects version of Luigi's Mansion
    • EB Games: $199 plus nothing
    I went to a few retailers this afternoon in the hope of catching a staff member who didn't know what they were doing who might sell it to me early. Target didn't seem to be stocking it at all and Big W were too clever. But the staff member helpfully pointed out the deal in the catalogue for me. I immediately went to EB in the hopes they'd match the offer, but of course they wouldn't since they don't match bundle deals :-( As much as I like earning carrots, the price difference was just too much. I got my preorder money back, and will be hitting Big W at 8.30am :-)

    Don't forget about games, the 60 USD games vs 90 AUD games is a complete rip.

    I'd just price match with EB Games; I've done it before they did it no question.
