    You'll be kicking yourself for months if you don't rush over to Wal-Mart's online store right now to put in your Super Smash Bros Brawl preorder before someone at the giant retailer wises up and updates the listing. At $19.82, this is likely the lowest you'll see this game priced for the next couple of years, so you would be a fool to not immediately pounce on this.

    Good deal but too bad it's the US version.

    Also, I'm guessing that like SMG because of the high profile release and because it's Nintendo there may be new protection. Just a thought...

    I seriously doubt that's is the full price. It is likely to be a down payment just like the $5 at Gamestop.

    It was a mistake. They just fixed it. bxjoe says he ordered successfully. The original link has a bunch of users that did it.

    I left my browser at check out and when I returned, they updated the cart price to $49.82

    Damn.

    Edit: I took a screenshot of the $19.82 price. I wonder if emailing it customer service would make them honor it.

    And this is on the front page of Digg right now. No wonder it didn't last.

    Very good deal indeed...should only be 10 dollars, in my opinion.

    All I need to get for Brawl is a Verbatim DVD-R and about 45minutes to an hour [​IMG]

    I bought mine at 19.88 but they charged me 50 on the final "Thanks for you Order" screen. I called and was able to get a $30 credit to my credit card. Hell yeah! Thanks for the tip!

    they will actually honor the price in their mistakes. weird thing is that this seems to happen on every major release; make me think there is someone screwing up on purpose.

    Cant now, page has been deleted from Walmart's website
    (and IMO, i think it was an accident that it was marked as $19.82)
