DS Bargain at TRU

I didn't see it posted, excuse me if I missed it.

Toys R Us is having a great deal on the DS:

For $149.99 you can get:

Mario Kart DS bundle w/ red Nintendo DS and Mario Kart
Ultimate Spiderman for DS
either the NDS starter Kit of NDS Pro Gamer's Kit. Both come with a case for the DS, car adapter, and earphones.

Not giving out rain checks on this one and they are sold out of the NDS kits on-line. I ran down to TRU and scored the last Ultimate SPiderman they had.

The only problem with that is that Ultimate Spider-Man is a terrible game. But if you could return it, or even sell it, then it would be worthwhile.

I dunno, Target for $99.99 still seems better than this.

Yeah, but you have to have a catalog, (which I don't have) and even then some stores aren't honoring it. If you're going to get Mario Kart anyway, which I was, and need a car adapter, which I do, this is a good deal.

This TRU deal is much better IMO

DS
plus Mario Kart (roughly 30-35 dollar game)... been playing this alot today
plus Ult Spiderman (roughly 35 dollar game) rated a decent 8.0 on IGN if that means anything
PLUS a very nice DS kit I got that included, an aluminum case, dust free wiping cloth, wrist strap, car adaptor, ear buds, screen protectors... hell Id have to buy most of those things anyway, nice to get them FREE... this was a 30 dollar value BTW

This is a MUCH better deal, and not everyone got those Target booklets

I purchased, played, and thourougly enjoyed Ultimate Spiderman, and I NEVER buy superhero games. I thought it was very clever, innovative, and a hell of a lot of fun.

Thanks for the heads-up...I'll try to check my local TRU and see if they have any left.

Yeah, I think the other poster must be thinking of the spider-man 2 game that was out at or around the DS launch last year. That one was terrible and got panned in all the reviews.

I haven't played Ultimate Spider-man, but it's gotten decent reviews.

The $99.99 at Target was a killer deal but I don't think it's possible to get it at that price anymore because it was originally a price mistake?

I think Target stopped honoring the 99 dollar price on 12-05.
