    More over the trend is that toysrus always comes up with some nice deals during major releases...(Mario galazy - $25 gift card, SSBB - 50% of select games) so might sa well wait to see what they have in store for us and then make a call...:)

    I sure am getting this game though....:)...just not a pre order...

    I'm hoping Game will do a deal with a free t-shirt when you pre-order. I'm sure I heard they are from a friend who works there.

    My local game is in a pretty small place too, so they don't get many pre-orders. I remember when the Sonic and Mario game came out, they only had about 8 t-shirts for the pre-orders, only two people ordered them so the staff got the rest.

    Seems like you got a pretty good deal on Amazon, though. =]

    true that, someone is always going to offer something different/more to try and steal customers... just gotta wait and see.

    Timing screwed up me getting Mario Kart. I was planning on getting it but its releasing 2 days before GTA4. So I have to spend money on GTA4. Unless my dad see's the MK commercial and decides he wants to buy it for me since he liked Mario Kart.

    I pre-ordered mine from Zavvi (online). £32. Cheapest I found it, as most games are there. If I hadn't already pre-ordered it I would be tempted by that Gamestation offer though! Nothing like freebies to make me buy something.

    Oo that's good.

    I went to this designer outlet on Tuesday and they had a new Zavvi shop there. I could get it from instore (or like you, online).

    Both Mario Kart and GTA4 are being released pretty close to my birthday, so with Mario Kart if I have the money I'll buy it myself, if not I'm hoping to get it as a present. As for GTA4, It's just after my birthday, so I'll be getting that myself. Been waiting for both games for a while and would like to get both on release =]

    If I don't go with Zavvi then I'll probably pick it up from the Game shop in my town, just because it's easy to just pop in there =]

    My birthday is in between as well (I think my birthday is the day before yours!), but I've pre-ordered both (as well as Brawl and MGS4 - all from Zavvi), so I'll be paying, but then I'm likely to get birthday money to cover the costs (including me splashing out on the Special Edition GTA4 package ;)). Looks like a good couple of gaming months! Except I have exams in May :(
