Mass Effect 3 $29 for console versions at Walmart Canada

#1 Posted by LiquidPrince (16181 posts) -

So I just picked up my 360 version of Mass Effect 3 as well to compliment my PS3 version. The console versions are currently on sale at Walmart Canada for $29. Just thought I'd share for anyone who hasn't picked it up yet.

Europeans can find it for £24 at Amazon.co.uk and Zavvi. I'm putting in my order now, I've go to experience the ending of this game.

Mass Effect 3 is already half off? Or are these used copies? If used, I wasn't aware that Walmart would even handle used products. If not, that really says something to me about the game when Skyrim's still about $45+ at Amazon.

Wtf is happening with Walmart Canada? First they were selling 3DS systems for $119 a couple weeks ago, which made me pick one up for my brother because you can get a $20 mail in rebate from Nintendo basically making it a $100 3DS, and now this. I'm seriously going to do a majority of my game shopping at Walmart now.

@Toxeia: New copies, not used.

@msavo: Whatever it is, I'm not complaining.

They've always seemed to have weird random game deals. I remembering them having Batman: AA and Borderlands for $40 when they launched.

@LiquidPrince: Didn't I send you a copy of Transformers to Canada before? Maybe we can work out a deal where you send me one of dem Mass Effect 3's (if it isn't region-locked on the 360)?

It's a shame that's why you want to play the game.

by the way I found out that canada shares the same region as the US.

Edit: went ahead and called around most online stores bestbuy.com, walmart.com...ect will not price match a out of country store... *even though current conversion puts the CAD and US dollar at the same give or take a half a percent of a percent of a penny*

...there was some doubt that Canada shared the same region as the USA? Guys, you know where Canada is on the map, right? Do you honestly think you'd have your own unique region-encoding and leave the other North American country out of the loop?

Did they wildly overestimate how popular Mass Effect is? Again?

Nice! Got yourself a great game for half the price

@Sackmanjones: My thoughts exactly.

Well, I already had it for PS3 and PC. I just wanted it for 360 as well. I know, I'm weird. But only for Mass Effect.

Same with me and Bastion actually. Bought it for the PC when I already had it for the 360. Guess I wanted a reason to play it again.

How did you not know that by now? Seems like practically half of the games sold at gamestop and amazon have English and French text on the back.

Well, they did claim that the third part of a trilogy would be the perfect place for newcomers to jump in.
