XboxOne_RGB_horizontalThere’s no games with it, but it’s good to see the console for under four hundred new.

$399 is a more realistic price for these current consoles, they’ve been out for long enough.

$349 would be even better though.

That fifty dollar difference is a psychological barrier for people on the fence about a second or third (or for that matter, first) console.

Anyway, the offer is available at JB Hi-Fi now.

targetlogoI know this isn’t Nintendo related, but Target Australia are selling three of the better Xbox One games brand new for $20 right now.

Forza Horizon 2 is especially great value at $20.

In fact, it’s an absolute steal.

Horizon 2 one of the most polished, well put together racers I’ve ever played- and when you combine it with Xbox One’s exceptional controller- it’s the best game on Xbox One by a mile.

Of course, Sunset Overdrive and Watch Dogs were both well received by critics, even though they’re both enjoyably average experiences.

artacadThe Art Academy series already has a distinguished pedigree on the DS family of systems, so it’s surprising that the fully featured Wii U retail release, Art Academy Atelier has pretty much gone unnoticed.

Maybe Wii U owners have had their gamepad doodling fix thanks to the drawing function in Miiverse, or perhaps Nintendo spent all their advertising money launching Splatoon.

Either way, the game is out, and it’s cheap at retail.

Target Australia is selling the game for just $37, and if you ask me that’s quite a bargain for any art enthusiast.

Some of the stuff that’s being showcased in the Miiverse community for this game is mind blowing.

See more about Art Academy Atelier here.

splinterThe acclaimed action game Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist was ported to Wii U in 2013, and by most accounts it’s really worth playing.

Target Australia is selling the game, new, for $29 right now.

I reckon anyone looking to boost their Wii U collection with a fun action game should pick this up.

Pretty good going, and should hopefully encourage some of those punters that are on the fence about purchasing Nintendo’s middle aged console to finally take the plunge. Into a pool of flouro ink, that is.

eshopThe mainstream gaming media doesn’t make a big enough deal of how fantastic the indie scene on Wii U really is, and as Wii U owners we’re not embracing this aspect of our beloved machine as well as we could be.

I own some awesome indie titles like Zen Pinball, Trine 2, Chasing Aurora, Runner 2, and TNT Racers.

I’ll sure as hell be getting Fast Racing NEO when it finally arrives, and I really should  get into Shovel Knight.

Anyway, the Wii U eShop is having a self described “Epic Indie Sale” from now until July 27.

Go have a look at the eShop right now, there’s some great bargains on offer, most notably Trine Enchanted Edition for just $6.79!

tubemanEB Games Australia are notorious for their all-style-no-substance approach to their sales.

Nothing says “legitimate” like high contrast sales banners hanging from the roof and around windows, inviting you in for an impulse purchase or two.

They’ll even throw in a free headache if you stay around the garish signage long enough.

There is a few good deals amongst the silliness though, and while I don’t usually go in for pre owned anything, sometimes you just can’t argue with a bargain.

Wii U

Rayman Legends for $19 new. This game is incredible and for $19 new, a steal.

Epic Mickey 2 for $28 new. I think this sequel is a bit under rated, and for under $30 new is a pretty decent addition to your rainy day catalogue.

3DS

Resident Evil Revelations for $12 pre owned. A great 3DS original that spawned ports, and a sequel that skipped the system.

Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition for $11.50 pre owned. $11.50? Hmmm. I reckon so. Just for a bit of fun.

Scribblenauts Unmasked for $19 new. I love me some Scribblenauts, and for under $20 new (or $14 pre owned) this is great value.

Bit. Trip Saga for $12 pre owned. I can’t calculate the cost per unit, but these games are a blast, especially Bit. Trip Beat.

Also, this have a look at this hideous Tingle plush. It could be yours for just $15!

Identify this product's target market. Anyone, please.

I’d pay $15 just to rip it apart and burn the pieces.

Poor Tingle.

Could someone please identify the target market for the above product? How does it even exist?

Thanks to 26rounds.com for the tubeman pic.
