This Wal-Mart deal doesn’t quite match the awesomeness of Target’s identically priced Zelda 3DS XL bundle a few weeks ago, but at least this one won’t end with someone stealing your credit card info (maybe).
The online sale includes the limited edition silver 3DS XL, a digital copy of Mario & Luigi: Dream Team installed, a 4GB SD card, and free shipping. Speaking of game deals from the brothers Mario, here are some on Amazon:
- Paper Mario: Sticker Star - $21.98
- New Super Mario Bros. 2 - $29.99
- Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon - $30.74
If you want Mario Party: Island Tour, that’s also discounted to $33.61.
Aw yiss. Amazon carrying PSN codes again means Amazon is discounting PSN codes again — here’s Hotline Miami for a crazy $2.49, with Cross Buy so you get both versions. As Eric’s mentioned on the podcast a few times, the PS Vita release really is the best version!
So if you didn’t already get it through PS Plus, get it here! Image via KurkoBoltsi.
Conception 2 limited edition bundle ⊟
The first run of Conception 2 will include a 10-track soundtrack CD, because Atlus. You don’t see many big collector boxes on Vita! I’m ashamed to admit that a big game box instantly makes games more desirable, even though I haven’t bought a game LE since MGS3 and prefer to buy digital.
Speaking of buying digital (segue!), Atlus is holding a big eShop sale in North America, assuming the eShop is up when you read this. Etrian Odyssey Untold and SMT4 are $30, and Etrian Odyssey 4, Code of Princess, Devil Survivor and Soul Hackers are $20 each.
eShop deals: SteamWorld Dig, Street Fighter IV 3D ⊟
More eShop sales that are totally contingent upon the eShop working! Through January 2, SteamWorld Dig is $6.99, down from $8.99. And Super Street Fighter IV 3D Edition, the first 3DS game Eric and I played together online back in small times – we were but children, Hundred Hand Slapping one another! – is just ten bucks!
BUY Nintendo 2DS & 3DS/XL, upcoming games
Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate (3DS) for $19.99 ⊟
Not a bad Amazon deal! With the money you save, you can buy a hunting guide over at Culty. The guys up in sales are also strongly urging me to mention that you can get free two-day shipping on the game by signing up for an Amazon Prime trial. [Update: MonHun deal is dead :o( .]

Mega Man X, Mega Man (GB) $2 each on eShop ⊟

Beep boop: Project X Zone for $19.99 ⊟

Hey, one of our favorite 3DS games, Julian Gollop (X-Com) and Ubisoft’s excellent modern war strategy RPG Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars, is just ten bucks at Amazon. I think that’s the cheapest I’ve ever seen it? You can even grab one of the custom inside cover inserts to decorate the box with.

Thanks for letting us know about the deal, funny-looking wolf dude. The number of high-profile releases coming out has slowed down, and our holiday vacations are nearing — seems like a good time to pick up Millennium Girl. Credit to TuteMyPokéFlute for the derp wolf pic.
Guild games on sale on eShop ⊟
If you’re curious about any of the Level-5 collaborations in the Guild series, now’s the time to get them, as they’re all on sale for $5.00/€4.99/£4.49 through January 2. That includes the essential, essential Attack of the Friday Monsters, some pretty cool games like Aero Porter and Liberation Maiden, and, uh, other stuff I haven’t played yet.
Above, Level-5’s 15th anniversary wallpaper, featuring the company’s top 10 characters as chosen by voters. Number one: some plane from Aero Porter. Number nine: the unseen porter from the same game. Everything else: some kid from Inazuma Eleven. I love it.
Super Crate Box free on PS Vita ⊟
As part of the almost totally unannounced PlayStation Mobile Festive Giveaway, Vlambeer’s Super Crate Box is free right now on PS Vita and other “PlayStation Certified” devices.
You should already have it, but if you don’t, the Vita version is the absolute best SCB, thanks to the Vita’s excellent d-pad and buttons and the same portability/replayability combo that benefits Spelunky.
Speaking of Spelunky, the PS3/Vita version is also on sale! It’s $7.49, or an insane $3.75 for Plus members. Buy this.
That Amazon deal is for both the 3DS and PS Vita games, which is nice. This Christmas K tree GIF is nice too — it’s from Luis.
