Damn, I'd love Kirby and Captain Toad at those prices :(

If you go back and they have any more I'd definitely be interested in taking them off your hands plus a premium for your time and the postage?

I'd certainly be interested in Mario Tennis Wii U, Kirby Paintbrush and Animal Crossing Happy Home if anyone was willing to pick em up for that price, since I'm certain my local stores won't have any games period.

Guess they're making room for all that Switch stock.... :lol:

I'm off work at the moment so I will take a walk down tomorrow and any £5 Wii U I will pick up.. Obviously Tregard gets first refusal as he asked first but will offer them here not after extra money just price to cover postage will be fine.. They still had a ton of £30 Wii U games such as Paper Mario, Force Awakens and Mario Kart as well as Amiibo's toon Zelda and Big Boo Amiibo's and lots of 3DS games as well as the consoles and a few Wii U classic controller

Unfortunately it was mostly 360 and PS3 in the sale Call of Duty, Minecraft etc

Hopefully some other Sainsburys may turn up some gems

Very frustrating, they had Toad Treasure & some Mario & Zelda games, all still priced up at full price. I took everything they had to the counter & they all scanned through at full price, except for an Animal Crossing 3DS game for a fiver, which I guess the kids will get some fun out of.

I went in my local Sainsburys last night but all the Wii U and 3DS games were still full price :( Would love a copy of Kirby and Mario Tennis at that price! :shock:

Yeah, me and my mate hit up both Sainsbury's in Wakefield last night but nothing was reduced. He did get some reduced Amiibos in Asda though, so not a total loss.

If it helps: In my Sains there were no reduced items in the normal games section, however there was a free standing display unit near the tills which had lots of £5 games (all PS3 Lego games so I didn't bother)
