Target’s Summer Gaming Deals for the Whole Family

The latest circular from Target has arrived, and in it you can find some great gaming deals for the four leading platforms on the market: Wii, DS, PS3 and Xbox 360.


Target’s best new deals are definitely for the Wii. You can get a legacy console for only $150, and Wii Remote / MotionPlus bundles, regularly $50, can be had for only $30. Or you can buy two new games for an instant $20 discount. Here are the specifics:

• Target’s lowest price ever on the White Wii Legacy game system – includes Wii Sports, 1 Remote and 1 Nunchuk on sale for $149.99 (save $50)

• Wii Remote with MotionPlus, available in pink, black or blue, on sale for $29.99 (save $20)

• Save $20 with purchase of any 2 of the following Wii games: Super Mario Galaxy 2, Harry Potter Years 1-4, Toy Story 3, Just Dance

For the DS, Target is offering a free Pokémon game with the purchase of a Nintendo DSi XL. And not just any old pre-selected Pokémon game, but one you get to choose for yourself from this selection: Pokémon SoulSilver w/ Pokéwalker, Pokémon HeartGold w/ Pokéwalker, Pokémon Diamond, Pokémon Platinum or Pokémon Pearl.


Unfortunately, the PS3 and Xbox 360 deals aren’t as dollar-inviting as the Nintendo platforms, with Target simply tossing in a free wireless controller with the purchase of a console system and two games. Here are the specifics:

• Free wireless controller with purchase of a Xbox 360 4GB system and any 2 of the following Xbox 360 games: Mafia II (available Tuesday at 8 a.m.), UFC Undisputed 2010, Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, Lost Planet 2, Red Dead Redemption, Toy Story 3 (a $49.99 value)

• Free wireless controller with purchase of any PS3 game system and any 2 of the following PS3 games: MLB 10: The Show, Toy Story 3, ModNation Racers, Red Dead Redemption, Mafia II (available Tuesday at 8 a.m.), UFC Undisputed 2010, Kane and Lynch 2: Dog Days, Lost Planet 2 (a $54.99 value)

So, any of these sales catch your eye?
