Any more details you can share? New & used or new only? Does it apply to Ammibo's? By "Nintendo Published" I assume only games actually made BY Nintendo... not third-party?

The fact it's B1G140% off + GCU seems quite nice... Just hoping for some additional detail to help clarify.

I really wish the current sale would overlap with this upcoming sale. I need a mix of Wii U & PS4 games, not interested in 3 for each platform.

So, 2 $60 games for about $50 each after tax. Can't say I'm too excited.

What? For two games it would be 96 instead of 120. With GCU it would be 76.80. Thats pretty slick.

Pretty sure toys r us had this same deal on the front page and they dont even offer gcu.

Even without GCU it's 3 $60 games for $120. Averages $40 each. Having said that, you're better off getting GCU if you don't already have it for an additional 20% of now and future purchases (for 2 years)

Guessing no preorders again, hoping they don't wait a year to redo the sale. DQ 7&8 are must buys for me.

No, it includes new but my math is wrong. I thought it was like this week's buy 2/get 1 sale. it's not. Neo's math is right.

2 x $60 games = $72
2 x $40 3DS games = $48

60 * .6 + 60 = 96
96 - (.2 * 60 * 2) = $72.

GCU is a flat subtraction based off the original price of the game when stacking with other deals. So its 60% of the original price per game not 64%.

$36 per Wii U game or $24 per 3DS game for Nintendo first party games that never go on sale or drop below MSRP is pretty awesome.

Most recent new Nintendo published games (most haven't price dropped and many never will):

3DS:
-------
LBX Little Battlers eXperience
Pokemon Super Mystery Dungeon
Yo-kai Watch
Legend of Zelda Triforce Heroes
Chibi-Robo! Zip Lash
Animal Crossing: Happy Home Designer
Puzzles & Dragons
Xenoblade Chronicles 3D

Wii U:
-------
New Super Mario U + New Luigi U
Mario Tennis Ultra Smash
Xenoblade Chronicles X
Animal Crossing Amiibo Festival
Yoshi's Woolly World
Super Mario Maker
Devil's Third (on the 11th before this deal)
