Target reportedly offering buy two, get one deal on PS4 games at launch

Leaked flyer suggests retailer to offer promotion November 10-16.

Gamers looking to purchase multiple PlayStation 4 titles at launch may want to consider a supposed deal from retailer Target. A leaked Target advertisement posted on Reddit suggests the company will offer a "buy two, get one free" deal on PS4 titles during launch week.

The Target flyer states that the promotion is available in-store only, and applies only to a handful of PS4 launch titles. Eligible titles include FIFA 14, Killzone: Shadow Fall, Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, Knack, Madden NFL 25, Battlefield 4, and NBA 2K14.

According to the advertisement, the three titles must be different, and the lowest-priced game will be free. The promotion is reportedly valid November 10-16. It is unclear if other retailers will match Target's offer.

The PS4 launches in North America on November 15 and in Europe on November 29. Launch title Killzone: Shadow Fall, as well as accessories like the DualShock 4 and PlayStation Camera, are already available for purchase at GameStop.

I broke this story on Gamespot in the comments yesterday, can I have a job? :)

Seriously though that flyer has been around the net for several days now.

I guess you can get Kill Zone, another Kill zone, and another Kill Zone.

the thing is its a good plan for sony, people will buy 2 games just for that free one even if they don't want the game.

Lol, is that headline for real!? Buy 2 get 1!? I don't know why I've never seen that kind of a deal before... well, maybe because you'd need to pay 200 % of what the actual price is. Would it have hurt so much to add the small word "free" to that headline? As it is, it is extremely misleading.

Things are looking great for the PS4!

I am XBOX gamer for the most part. Honestly, I feel the PS4 is the better of the 2 systems next gen. I like whatever I am seeing on the PS4. Sure, the XBONE has some good launch titles BUT the PS4 has better games coming out next year which is why I have decided to not buy any console now. However, my first next gen console WILL be a PS4. I will then get the XBONE later in the gen.

Too bad I already got KZ SF at gamestop yesterday... There's no other game I want yet except knack, sort of, but I'm waiting for reviews of that game first.

I loved when Target did this for the Wii U at launch. Always a great deal for the first buyers.

Of course, why not! $399 for the system + $60 for an extra controller + 2 games for another $120, and after NJ sales tax you walk out of there spending $620. Chump change for most people I guess.

my vote for best launch title ever, for the level of importance as it was for the system...

mario 64. 

not saying that the ps1 wasn't the better system...just saying that was the best launch any system in my book.

2nd place is the pack in title super mario world...but some might argue that pack in titles are not the same as launch titles.

WOW, I hope that this is real and is happening local to SoCal! Is there any indication of WHERE this deal is for?

the deal is a cool deal. but i will say, i think people overrate the importance of launch titles. Nothing jumps at me title wise, and he xbots say titanfall is badass so often that i'll give them that, even though i am not psyched with that title.

i kinda wish the gears, god of war and the halo's of the world were launch titles. i could have gone for a full 60 hr jrpg out the gate. maybe capcom fighters too.

@mikemaj82 Better than $500 for a system, $60 for an extra controller, + 3 games for another $180. 

You get one bonus though; having nearly all the games available for PS4! Hard choice is picking which crappy launch titles to take home.

@reno_marx I agree it is a good deal.  I wouldn't call myself an Xbot or SonyPony as I will get neither for at least a year and am still undecided on which one to get first.  I am intrigued by the rumor mill as of late though.  One way or another the launches should be entertaining.

@racerxgundam @McGregor @reno_marx Majora's mask is the only one I haven't played all the way through (I have it, just never played it). It may be because it came out when I discovered unreal tournament.

@racerxgundam @McGregor @reno_marx FF6 is my favorite (FFIII in the US). But 7 really showed us what a FF game could look like. Zelda is still my favorite game of all time, and the SNES zelda (link to the past) is the best Zelda of all time.

@McGregor @reno_marx i played alot of n64..i don't have hate for it

but ps1 was alot better. i mean there is just no getting around it. if u were into jrpg's and strategy games the n64 was a nightmare.

@reno_marx @racerxgundam You are to blame with whats wrong with new games. You take graphics over a great story or great gameplay. Hell I still load up my snes emulator and nerd rage on Chrono.

@reno_marx @racerxgundam You should show more respect to the gamers before you. Without them, you would be outside pushing a tire with a stick.
