    I'm thinking about buying it at GameStop since I have a $25 gift card, but I am interested to look into cheaper video equipment stores/game stores.

    Any recommendations?

    Use the giftcard, unless you have some connections for discount, is gonna be $60 for LOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNNNNNNGGGGGGGGGG Time. Cause of popularity, supply and demand. :ninja:

    Looking for a copy of puyo puyo tetris, and is $40 unless you get eshop is $30, WHY I DON'T KNOW!

    If Ultra street fighter 2 was cheaper on eshop, i would have it by now, but is not, eshop and retail is both $40 :wtf:

    I mean if you have GCU, buy it from Best Buy to get 20% off. But honestly, it's a first-party Nintendo title on the hottest console out there, there aren't many "deals" so to speak, as they don't need them to move product.

    Puyo Puyo retail version comes with two cute but very fragile keychains. Not really worth the 10 extra dollars

    I know is not worth that extra money, which is why i'm looking for a cheaper sale. I see people are selling it for unreasonable prices without the keychains, but i just don't want to download a game to use up space i can use for eshop only games.

    Yeah it is pretty frustrating that they are making full price "$60" titles, its a pain becuase every game costs almost as much as the controllers.

    Well thats why the made flashcards at least :P I plan on selling them all once a reliable one comes out, or something like Freeshop releases on there. Also went ahead and bought Mario Kart today, really enjoying it and all the new content (latest one I played was Wii & 3DS.)
