Thanks Speedy!

Hmm, "Buy 1 NDS Game >>>> Get 1 Free", is that on any games or just the 4 listed?

As always thanks for the info Speedy.

Just to clarify, TRU will start taking PS3 reservations on the 29th?

Since that is when this ad is set to appear, I'd say Yes.

A $50 deposit is required it says.

Comes with Platinum Gamecube + Sonic Heroes + Shadow The Hedgehog games
A Nintendo game bundled with two Sonic games. Never thought I would see the day.

No mention of the Wii? Whomever leaked the Oct. 29 preorder date on the web said people would find out in the big toy book. So nothing?

There's a half page ad on it on page #64 but it lists only the machine's capabilities.

No price listed and a bunch of photos of people waving the controller around like a can of Lysol.

And it says you can reserve it with a $50 deposit.

There's an idea for a game...

anyway...thanks as always.

If you want to save a few more bucks at Toys R Us, and have a child or can fill out the form as if you have one, sign him/her up for the birthday club. My son has gotten a birthday card from Geoffrey each of the last three years--first year was a 5 off 10 gift card; next year was a 10 off 75 coupon, this year was a 3 off 3 gift card [and for some reason he's in the database twice, so we got two.] Free money is free money.

Do they do this just once a year? I'm going to pick up a PS2 and I'm trying to figure out how many games to buy.

Do the Circuit City and Best Buy stores match TRU's sales for the B2G1 free?

TRU has very little selection online and my local TRU store does not have much either.

Does anybody know how the ToysRUs reservation system works? Do they take limited numbers of reservations due to limited stock or due they take the reservations, then it's first come first served anyway? I've not dealt with them for a console launch before.

Yeah, anyone able to PM the B2G1 sale? Their selection leaves a lot to be desired...

How/Where do you get a copy of the big toy book circular? Just in case my TRU tries to say they know nothing about preorders I will have the book to show them.

Sometimes Best Buy and Circuit City PM, but it's totally YMMV. I've had better luck with Circuit City, but they usually call and see if it's in stock or they check the web site. Best Buy won't call and check but they'll put stipulations on the rule like "it's only the games in the ad" or whatnot.
