@xjin:

:( Apparently I was wrong. Sorry for assuming the website's labels were correct!

Nevermind, found a sweet deal on ebay for the SC1 battle chest + SC2 for 35 shipped. About the same as if I bought them separate at this deal plus the normal price for the battle chest.

Just walked out from my South Bay Best Buy (toys r us doesn't even have pc games anymore) and they did a price match at the register.

Just showed them the toys r us page on my phone, looked at price and picture and I was set.

Some reason the computer didn't require a manager approval so I guess they either know about it or I lucked out.

It ringed up at $49.99 at first and was the last one on their rack.

Thanks for the heads up!

Would there be any awesome Wooters willing to pick one up and ship it to me? Local TRU is sold out and Best Buy right away said no way, without even calling. I have Paypal

I called my local toys r us and the lady said that they don't carry computer games :\

Just successfully did this today. Went into Best Buy, showed them the price for Diablo 3 and Starcraft 2 on my phone, they didn't call Toys R Us or anything. They just did the price override and let me have it. I will mention though any other time I've ever tried to price match at Best Buy, they have called the store I'm matching to see if it was in stock and if it was out, they wouldn't price match. So I'm really surprised this actually worked today.

best buy matched tru's diablo, battlefield, and skyrim prices for me this weekend. in Portland, OR for what it's worth.

Best Buy in Utah matched this for me after clearing it with the store manager, but limited the availability to 1 per purchase. I'll be off to the store again later today to buy more for roommates.

@lparsons42: I called Walmart about this when it was for Skyrim and Diablo 3, but they said they donly price match actual ads and not online pricing. I don't know why since it's still the price you could buy it. I think if you got the right person though, they might do it from a printed ad or from your phone perhaps. Worth trying at least if you're there.

It wasn't in the newspaper ad at all... at least not here.

@lparsons42: It's true that this promo wasn't posted in ads. I think these guys used a smart phone to show the BB rep.

@teej21012: Is it in a printed ad somewhere? Best buy usually won't match online prices, even if they are for in-store purchases. I didn't see a printed TRU ad this weekend but I can check my newspaper again...

Just called my local store, lady replied "We've been getting calls about it all day, I don't know why" Suffice it to say they don't have it in stock.

@athawk01: Does the one you got from Best Buy work for Mac too? If so, I'm leaving my house as soon as you say yes.

@rockytrh: Our TRU actually has a Best Buy two stores down in the same shopping center. The manager actually went over to the Toys R Us and asked about the stock.

vote-for2vote-against

Went to TRU said they had two but they couldn't find them, ie employee purchase later. Any way best buy had three I bought 2 for 9.98 each. Sweet deal. I've been wanting to play this since it came out, now if only I had some time.

Good deal. I wanted to pick up Diablo 3 from my local TRU, but they were sold out of all PC games according to the salesperson.

@innercliff: And best buy knows the stocking information of TRU?

@teej21012: Best Buy told me they can't price match if the place is out of copies to sell.

vote-for1vote-against

Don't forget guys that Best Buy price matches. So if ToysRUs is sold out, show BB this ad and they price match.

@blaize9: They are trying to clear inventory.

They had this on sale since monday, most if not all games for 10$ are sold out.

We are forced to buy Pokemon Black and White 2 for full price to get this game for $10.
This is a great deal because Pokemon BW2 is an awesome/new game!

"70% OFF ANY video game item priced 19.99 or less when you buy Pokemon Black or White 2!"
-Toys R Us website

*Still good to call and make sure if that's the case because I am not 100% sure.
**Just a note for people who think it's just $10 for Starcraft 2 :)

vote-for1vote-against

I'm pretty sure Diablo 3 is on their for $10 as well, but unlike SC2 I would wait till they get it a little more polished. Poor Blizzard did so well polishing wings of liberty they had to make arcade mode to keep the modders interested.

@gwk1967: Most Toys R Us stores have contact phone numbers. I called mine and they even pulled one off the shelf to hold for me.

The description (even on their site) says "for PC", but they have it categorized as a Nintendo DS game. Do they have a (semi-)trained chimp editing their site?

Also, I can't even check if it's available at this price at my nearest store, which is ~60 miles away. Grrr.

These are pretty much sold out in every TRU.
