    @ Target

    just got them in today, gotta be the best deal on hardware preorders :eek3:

    so ya you just go to your local target (US only i think?) look for an endcap with these cards on it, take it to the cashier pay $1 (it doesnt ring up as a gift card so you can use coupons or discounts on it, i got mine for 90 cents) and bring the card back on oct 1st when you pick it up, have them scan it, and BAM $5 gift card... but you cant use it on that transaction however it is active after the transaction so you could use it to buy a game. also they have to hold it for 7 days after the release.

    if you dont see any of these cards out give the target team member this number 207-07-0200 to punch into his PDA and see if they are in the back because chances are they haven't set the revision for the end cap yet.

    just a tip :wavey:

    (sending to kotaku:x:)

    Option A:

    we carry patapon 2 which is a box with a download coupon card kinda like the PSN $ cards, i would imagine if Sony wants to keep places like target, gamestop, walmart happy they will continue to do this with future releases :o

    Option B:

    if you really care that much you can just have them cash it out as retailers have to cash out gift cards that are $10 or less, i dunno if tha'ts outside California or not but i know here we can do that here (check your local listings :o). and then just put the $5 back in your account as if you put it towards the PSP?

    :dunno:

    I hope so, then we still get to have our nice retail cases. It would be nice for larger releases at least.

    They do this with game preorders pretty often too.

    I wonder how this system will do....I feel like its going to bomb. PSP's success is mostly due to being able to hack it and this will be hack proof for at least a little while I'm sure.

    I havent been keeping up on it...I know it doesnt use UMD's so its not possible to play your old games right? Or are they making a way to rip them? Any idea what games are coming out at launch? Are they all just downloadable games?

    For games I really like, I'd pay extra. They'd probably make it the same price though. Marvel VS Capcom 2 for PSN has a boxed copy and it's the same price.

    all these questions and more will be answered at TGS,

    however the PSP's current failure is due to lack up software support, the lack of software support is due to how easy it is to hack... the Go's battery can not be removed like an ipod so no more pandora battery, let along any other extreme security features i has (ie look at the PS3) less hacking means more software sales which means more software is made for the system, step 3: profit.

    true but in japan the prices were staggered for GT, and with PSP games i dont see the point of charging more on the PSN especially with how much they want this to succeed?

    but i :dunno:

    The DS is hacked just as much. I very much doubt you'll see a flood of games start to come out for PSP

    I'm so hyped to get this thing. I've been without a PSP for about 13 months.

    I know :hs: Was hoping another retailer would offer something similar... guess not :wtc:

    Not for a while, from what I hear. The reason they made the battery on the PSP Go non-removable was to combat piracy (Pandora Battery trick on PSP slim & fat)

    I said NEW. All those games have been in development for months now.

    Like I said, don't go expecting a flood of new, awesome games just because a system goes to digital distribution. Developers aren't going to masturbate to the idea of a pirate-proof handheld....pirate proof for the time being anyways

    lol @ people getting excited over $5 off $250. + taxes make it more than buying online idiots. :rofl:

    i thought this thread was going to be a scam. buy a bunch and get the $5 gift cards and cancel. but you dont get it till you buy it.
