    Target B2G1F deal legit?

    I know there's already thread discussing this but since everybody is all hyped up on this deal nobody seems to be responding this question I have which is, has this been officially confirmed by Target themselves? cause the ad sure as hell is not on their site. So my main question is where is the official confirmation from Target? link to the official Target ad? GameSpot's word of mouth doesn't cut it for me. And why are people saying it goes from November 10th to the 15th? If the ad clearly says it starts selling Friday 8/9am can't remember the exact time frame.

    If it's on the internet it has to be true! I am just waiting for Target to shoot down the info, I could see them doing this for Black Friday though, but there is no way in hell I would fight the crowds for $60!

Also if you pay close attention that ad is old since it's still advertising Watch Dogs as if it were to be available on launch, so my guess is they will either change the ad to remove Watch Dogs or they may not even make this deal available, so my main question is where is the official confirmation from Target? link to the official Target ad? Kotaku's word of mouth doesn't cut it for me. And why are people saying it goes from November 10th to the 15th?

    It does seem a little far-fetched to me now for a couple of reasons:

    1. There is no target logo located anywhere on the ad (though that does look like Target's color scheme)
    2. "Nov. 10th - Nov 16th" is not located on any part of the ad

    But, to it's credit if true, the deal was set for in store only, which is why you may not have seen it on their site. And I don't think it was photoshopped. Guess we'll find out soon.

    Also, I don't think the ad was advertising watchdogs

    You are right, my bad, I could have sworn I saw Watch Dogs in there but still if anyone finds an official confirmation please do let us know, I will hold on to my GS preorders for now.

    If it's real, the highlight and big discount in-store weekly ad specials usually start showing up on this site the Friday before the Sunday the ad is published online and slipped into local newspapers. Not all specials will be listed, but things like B2G1 on new games usually make their upcoming top deals lists.

    According to every Target I have contacted, it is not confirmed to be real and even if it was, no employee would know until Friday-Monday before. Their official ads are not even out until the Monday of each week.

    Do you have a source for your claim of it being absolutely real?

    As of right now there is no OFFICIAL confirmation, and you're wrong ads come out on Sunday. We're currently waiting for Sunday's ad, if the deal is there then we're a go and if isn't then there won't be such a deal.

    The deal is real. Called 2 different Targets that confirmed it for me. Some PS4 games may come in early, say Tuesday Nov 12, you just need to call to see if they're in or not.

    There's some of us who've also called and contacted Target but we're getting mixed information some say yes some say they don't know, that's why official confirmation will go live Sunday along Target's weekly ad.

    Most target employees are clueless when it comes to video games. I think the Ad is legit, but the employees are not informed or they don't care.

    I looked at the sales flier for next week. I saw nothing in there about any game sales. Just a big list of what kind of ps4 stuff they have. Zero mention of a sale of any type

    Care to share? You could at least help us debunk this rumor.

    +1. I don't even care if the deal is on or not at this point. I just need to know whether I should keep my preorders at Gamestop or cancel them.

    Same here, I do hope the ad confirms this rumor but if it debunks it too bad.

    If it is posted on sites like Cheapassgamer.com and not debunked, then it is real. There are guys who get a hold of weekly ads before they come out and post them there. I'm just debating if I should even buy any games. Its a great deal but I have little desire to play most of the launch titles except for Resogun and Contrast which will be free to PS Plus members anyway. The question is, will I be able to get online day one?

    Like I said don't believe it until tomorrow when we see the actual Weekly ad, and I thought it might be up by now but it isn't it should be tomorrow though. I found this however so this is hopeful.
