why 40percent off on second game for nintendo systems only?

#1oq7sterPosted 5/19/2013 5:23:43 AM
I saw an advertising and a certain toy store is discounting all Wii, WiiU, DS and 3ds games. Is it because of the announcements or because they trying to get rid of them??

When it's something like that, they're trying to get rid of overstock.

That ain't bad right? I thought they where trying to increase the interest of people for those systems. This week I saw every mayor store advertising the WiiU which is surprising cause they didn't before. Plus most of them didn't advertise the Xbox or ps3.

Something like this implies that they've overbought at a corporate level on titles for those specific systems and they're trying to either clear out inventory before the end of the financial year to move warehouse stock to retail (many US companies use June as the end of the FY) or that they're planning on cutting back shelf space for those specific systems. Since they're not extending the sale to PS3 or 360, it's one of those two.

Yeah TRU has sales like every other week. I'm mainly a Transformers collector so I have offers telling me when sales pop up, they have these almost all the damn time now (And I'm pretty sure game prices are also jacked up over at TRU)
