Something's going down at Target. Either they're really getting out of games and consoles and just having a massive firesale, or they just really want drive traffic to their eBay store.
Either way, out of all the deals that have gone up these are by far and away the most insane. Let's begin.
The new version of the PS4 for just over $400. Xbox One's at prices so ridiculous it's difficult not to consider. Nintendo consoles at prices that cannot be ignored.
Target's gone off the deep end. Let's break it down by platform.
This Is How It Works
For all deals, you'll need to use the CTARGET25 discount code at checkout. That gets you a 25% discount off everything on the store until November 2.
You can only make three transactions using the discount code, and the maximum discount per transaction is capped at $1000 — although that still leaves enough room if you wanted to buy three consoles in a single hit, for instance. (PS4, Wii U and a Xbox One anyone?)
Another snag: if you want to take advantage of this, you'll need an Australian PayPal account for it to work. And it's worth noting that you can only buy 10 items in each transaction.
Got all that? No? Then here's a run-down of the terms and conditions just in case. Note that all prices are listed with the discount applied, and if you're confused here's a picture of where you put the discount code in.
Let's get to the deals.
Good God. Haven't bought a PS4 yet? This would be bloody hard to refuse. It's the updated version of the PS4 too, the newer model that runs slightly quieter and has the larger hard-drive. Real nice deal.
As for the games, here's the pick of the bunch. Click this link to get all the games if you want to trawl through the listings manually. Note that Destiny: The Taken King was out of stock at the time of writing.
Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection ($59.25) FIFA 16 ($59.25) Bloodborne ($66.75) Dragonball Xenoverse ($55.5) Mad Max ($66.75) The Order: 1886 ($36.75)
Also, you can get DualShock 4 controllers — black only — for $59.25 too. Good price if you want another controller, or something for your PC.
Deal of the day, surely. Here's the list to all of the games, but some highlights include:
Project CARS ($66.75) Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain ($59.25) Forza 6 ($59.25) Destiny: The Taken King ($59.25) Middle-earth: Shadow of Mordor ($33) Far Cry 4: Limited Edition ($29.25) Assassin's Creed: Syndicate ($51)
Oh yeah, there's Nintendo deals as well. And not just for the Wii U either.
Wow. But the offerings for the handhelds might be better.
Downside: you have to buy Animal Crossing Happy Home Designer. Upside: it's so cheap you won't care.
If you don't want the XL version of the handheld, this is a disgustingly cheap price. Maybe a good Christmas present for the little ones. If you do want the 3DS XL, but without Animal Crossing, that'll set you back $186. (Scroll down this link for the listing.)
As for the Wii U games, here's a quick selection (while the full list is here):
Devil's Third ($59.25) Splatoon ($51.75) Super Smash Bros Wii U ($51.75) Yoshi's Woolly World ($51.75)
Dragon Ball Z Extreme Butoden ($41.25) Mario Kart 7 ($48.75) Kirby Triple Deluxe ($41.25) Inazuma Eleven Go Light/Shadow ($41.25)
Phew. What a mouthful. Don't forget that discount code is CTARGET25 and you need an Australian PayPal account to take advantage of this.
But really, if you want gaming gifts for Christmas ... this is pretty damn good. Get amongst it, people.
