Aussie Bargain Roundup: Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze

No one likes paying for the same game a second time, but if you have to – do it as cheaply as possible. On the other hand, as other Wii U ports have proven in the past there’s a lot of people who will be playing this for the first time – it’s a great game and worth every dollar. Look for our review later in the week.

As usual, we’ve got no Target or Big W prices yet, and keep expecting this to happen unless there’s an early catalogue. No relief from importers either, the best prices are around the mid to high $60 range at this stage.

As always we’ll keep you updated, should you see a price that’s not here – let us know in the comments.

    EB has a trade in deal where you can get the game for $29 if you trade in any 2 games (provided they are worth $5 or more in trade credit)

      Expect to be amazed as they refuse your trade ins as they are worth less than 5.

      They might not even tell you they are ineligible, just ring up the price as “$75”, leaving you to explain, embarrassingly, that you thought they would qualify for the promotion.

      Don’t expect a list of trades worth more than 5 to be available to you either.

      Consider selling your games on eBay instead

      Or do whatever you like, it’s your life

        If you ask nicely in-store or over the phone, they will definitely check the prices for you.

        Hey FYI, I just done this at EB and they were great. Traded in a few old games that I have from PS Plus anyway.

        Rush Of Blood (I paid $20)
        Rayman Legends (I paid $20)
        Hell Divers (I paid $29)
        PES2016 (I paid $25)
        Total I paid was $94 for these games, I got $79 trade in on them. Not bad at all imo so maybe stop all the hate and give them a break when they produce a genuinely good deal like this one eh bud?

      I think Target is being extra funny about games recently. On Thursday 19th April they didn’t have a catalogue for that week (already weird) and at two locations I visited still had copies of last weeks expired catalogue (with definite ending date on them). So I call my local Target and get directed to entertainment. Helpful person on phone looks up Labo for me and no results, not in their system. They said to call after opening on Friday morning to see if they willl even be stocking it, let alone he price.

      The online shop search didn’t have any match on the day and I could only see the price the price instore from a locked up glass cabinet display after launch. No empty pre release boxes (small ones like Big W or full size ones like JB had), no folded promo leaflets like other retailers. On top of that, I have been told by entertainment in Target does not have a price match policy (not just games and even if printed competitors catalogue). It is the morning of launch and DKC: TF doesn’t have a search hit on Target online store.
