Mario Kart 8 has launched and many of those old pre-order bonus deals are now long gone. As great as Best Buy’s offer of $10 gas cash was, we’ve been able to track down ongoing deals post-launch. On top of Frys’ low price of $50, Toys R Us is also offering 40% off any Wii U game with the purchase of Mario Kart 8. Also, any purchase of Mario Kart 8 gets you a free Wii U game from the eShop when you register on Club Nintendo from now through July. In North America, you can select from New Super Mario Bros. U, Pikmin 3, The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker HD, or Wii Party U for your free game. Meanwhile, Europe gets a considerably larger selection to choose from.

    Everytime I see Last Guardian, I get sad. I’ve already given up hope. Seeing it now just breaks my heart.

    • Lord Ackercocke

      I seriously think Sony will announce it’s imminent release at E3 2014 on PS4

    • Goose

      Even if it is announced, the key members that worked on ICO and SotC aren’t even working on it anymore. I give up, man. There is no hope.

  • An Tran

    Good price for FF14, wondering if I should play it…though I got some characters on Tera and Vindictus that I still need to max.

    • It’s the lowest price we’ve seen so far, but keep in mind this doesn’t include the subscription fees.

  • Goose

    Forgot to mention that I really appreciate the niche game price updates. I don’t have too much time to invest in scouring sites to find deals since whatever time I do have outside of work is allocated into hammering my backlog. Keep up the good work and thank you for not only keeping the sensationalist posts to a minimum but also keeping posts on-topic and game-related.

    • Almost every video games site will have sales articles, but we definitely try to put alot of effort into covering games that might not be seen on other sites. Glad we can help!
