Next week's ad for Target's "2 for 1" video game deal features a game that probably won't be part of the sale.
They did that in Futureshop up here in Canada too, just a typo.
that is big error. Almost as big as the time Best buy "accidentaly" charged for ps3 system updates LMAO. Who here thinks this is a marketin g strategy to get ppl into their stores? It goign to be so funny when ppl rush in to get gt5 and it isnt there. They will probly giv target the middle finger. LOL
Eh..I saw GT5 being advertised for Nov 2nd in a Best Buy ad here this week
Yeah. Either some stores didn't get the memo or it's a surprise. Sony elaborated this genius marketing plan of a fake delay of one of the most anticipated games this generation to get lots of media attention. And if that's true, then it worked! haha :D
if only Target somehow got some copies of the game, before the delay.
Available for Pre-order. This item will be released on December 31, 2010 The site put 2011! Don't scare us aholes!
Yea this situation was the FIRST thing everyone noticed about in this ad when it was floating around the net. :p
What are they expecting? Ads are printed roughly 3 weeks in advance which was probably before the delay happened.
Every store gets the release date of GT5 wrong at one point
It's not even that. It's just that the delay was announce so sudden before the release. At this point, many retailers already printed the Ads. I remember when working at CVS, they get the Ads 2-3 weeks in advance before the sale date.
Its still quite amusing
