Mario Odessey still $97 for me, but at least there's an E3 page now.

Yeah, RDR2 and Tekken 7 are down to $50, maybe they aren't going to discount Mario like Walmart did.

I guess I could pre-order on Amazon and hope they bring it down to $50.

EDIT: From RFD:

Does Steam generally do any type of E3 promotion?

Can you really "sell out" pre-orders? I noticed Spider-man is unavailable too.

could be a smart business to load up and sell these online for $70 or something on release...

One of many who is too boring; thinks that there should be rules regarding grammar in custom user titles, and also makes moderators wonder if there is a charachter limit here. I mean come on- you would think that would be a limitation in the software

$100 for a game would finally be out of my acceptable price range. Even for Mario.

In any case, this WalMart deal seems to be a bit strange (selling out of pre-orders on ARMs, really?), so I'm okay with waiting to see what the bigger game sellers (Amazon, Best Buy) offer up.
Hopefully. But it is odd that all of Walmart, Best Buy, Amazon and EB Games had it at $99.99 and all other unreleased big Switch games at $80. Not a good sign.

At these prices, Walmart is using the games as a loss leader hoping you buy other stuff at the same time. They would only have made a specific number of titles available at the discounted rate.

What are you doing to me best buy? I know I'm going to want FFVII and may need to buy a PS4 to play it. Don't see it on xbox one on the Best Buy site.

I got in on God of War for PS4 at $50 on Amazon. Keeping an eye on those Switch games.

EDIT: Star Wars Battlefront II is down to $50 for the regular edition too. Fun times

I think this E3 will determine if I buy a switch or wait longer until better games are out.

VIIR is launching "first" on PS4. Timed exclusive most likely. Also, probably 2018 or later at this point.

Unless you meant the remaster of XII. That is PS4 exclusive.

Excited for Ubisoft's one. I know Far Cry 5 is the big one, I'm interested in that too (currently playing Primal which is my first Far Cry game and FP game in general, totally sold me on the title). But I'm eagerly awaiting news about the new AC (yeah yeah, I know..but I'm a fan). All signs point to ancient Egypt, super excited about getting that confirmed.

I find it funny you can pre-order Death Stranding for PS4. By the time it comes out the PS5 could exist.
