Toys ‘R’ Us has Ghost Squad for $56.99 (with the free gun as the gun comes with the game so every store stocking the game should also have the gun).

Thanks for the deals fellas, will update the listing.

It doesn't say.

Oddly enough the first store I walked into was willing to price match but claimed the gun was only available for preorders even though they has a sign up promising me a bonus gun.

Anyway I walked right out of bizarro world and purchased the package from a friendlier store.

btw I love the way the sticker on the gun box refers to the game as the bonus, classic!
6 years ago
Sorry about not updating the list quickly, it's been a busy day for me.

Yes, Ghost Squad is for Wii. There's also an arcade version but I doubt many (if any) arcade would still have it.

You could try getting a Wii at David Jones. I've had luck getting stuff there in the past when shops have been sold out.

I went to both JB and Toys 'R' Us with no success of finding Ghost Squad at either. $57 for the game plus gun is more like it. JB had Endless Ocean for $75 (whole $5 off icon_rolleyes.gif ) but I am not sure weather I will like it or not

I picked up NiGHTS for $79.99 at Toys 'R' Us. EB, GAME and JB were selling it around the $100 mark so I guess you can put that down.

Question: is JB still doing the trade in 2 for Sonic & Mario?
6 years ago
As I've said countless times before, Toys R Us usually sell their games for around 20% less than the retail price.

As for Endless Ocean, it's not the sort of thing you'll want to play if you like action packed games. It's slow-paced and focuses entirely on exploration. Some will like it, others will hate it. If you like documentries on sea life, then you could say its the closest thing to filming one.

Keep a look out for the PALGN review. icon_wink.gif

I went in there, they wanted to charge me $56.99 for the game and an extra $56.99 for the gun despite the sticker says they go together in one package. I told them that everywhere else in the mall they (game and gun) are taped together, but didn't phase her. The stupid bimbo wanted to charge me double, so I told her to get f**ked and walked out.
