saw this over on CAG

* This is only directly confirmed for PS4, but the OP there states that this will be followed up by a similar deal for XB1

they have an ad from a flyer with the details, dated November 10-16.  looks like the following are noted, plus it states 'more in store
Killzone Shadow Fall
Knack
NBA 2K14
Madden 25
FIFA 14
AC IV
BF4

if this is true, I'll definitely be using it to get KZ, AC and BF.  note that as Target usually adjusts the cost of each game in deals like these, you could potentially walk away $40 on the 1 or 2 games you want.

I imagine 'more in store' means that almost every launch game will be included.  If they offer this online I'll probably cancel a couple of my Amazon pre-orders for the XB1 versions and grabbing them that way.

Does anyone know what day Target is actually going to start selling PS4 games? I would love to pick mine up prior to the 15th.

apparently Sony let the reins slip and anything on the shelf can be sold as soon as it comes in.  speculation is that this means Target may run out before the sale begins.  This should also apply to the Nov 15 list

This started today.  They only have a few titles in, though.  A couple more on Tuesday.  And the last few on Friday.

Looks like Amazon is matching this, at least for existing preorders.  I just got this email from them:

fwiw, there are people on CAG who have been able to get most ps4 games today, and use a 30% off coupon (which is highly random, but worth a shot.  basically, have a willing cashier scan one of those pre-order cards.  if it doesn't add a coupon, void and try again.  it's not known why the coupon does or doesn't print)

it would be a even better deal if you can score that.  


there's also been some claims that best buy is matching this in store, so you might want to try them too.

On Amazon does anyone know which sipping option to select if you want the games on launch day? I'm not a prime member. Nothing would be worse than ordering them on Tuesday and then not get them by Friday.

Anyway my question still stands. Anyone know which "shipping" option to select to get them on launch day?

I don't know for sure with non-Prime, but with Prime you just select the 2-day shipping and it comes on release day.

No, I for a fact saw it yesterday when I got my email because I checked the list immediately and didn't get that game because I already have it preordered for the Xbox One.

I think the email went out a while after the page was created.  I only got the email about midnight.  it wasn't there when I checked yesterday and the CAG forums are full of people who were complaining that NFS wasn't included.  

no worries though.  I'm just happy it's part of the promo now

picked up NFS, KZ4 and Lego Marvel for the kids.  I figure I'll try my hand with AC4 today at Target with some other games or just get it separate.

Got one order in (hated that I had to break it into 2).

By the time I put the second set together, Lego Marvel sold out, and the code won't apply.  Tried to swap it for NFS, same thing.  And BF4 is showing as arriving on the 18th.

So now I still have to hunt down BF4, Lego Marvel and Knack. Target doesn't sell Knack in stores.  Sigh.

stopped by Target and got AC4, NBA2K14 and BF4.  Got the last copies of both NBA and BF, so I was pretty lucky.    I asked about the 30% off coupon that a lot of CAG people have been able to get and use on PS4, but when I asked, the manager got a little weird with me and said that he would honor the coupon if people had one, but as he knew I didn't, he... (he let the sentence end there. )  I didn't want to press my luck and lose out so I just got what I had.  I don't really have the time to try for the coupon and do a return/rebuy.

They still had lots of copies of Ghosts, 2 copies each of Madden and FIFA and that was it.  figures that I ordered NFS from Amazon and now it's got a delivery date of 12/30; I could have picked up a copy of it at Target and got Knack instead of NBA2k14.  I haven't decided whether to open that or not yet. 

I haven't ever been this excited for getting something I can't even play yet.
