The early birds may catch the worms, but the late adapters catch the sales. So, those of you who haven't yet succumbed to Square Enix's high-and-mighty game tax but still want a copy of The World Ends With You
are in luck.
Until Sunday (we assume, so don't quote us on that), you can grab the game at both Amazon and Circuit City (dot com or brick and mortar) for the
reasonable price of $29.99. Should you not want to leave the comfort of your own home (or, like this blogger, you just don't live near a Circuit City), then each online deal has its pros and cons. Both sites offer free shipping, but Circuit City adds tax to the order. Amazon, on the other hand, doesn't add tax but the game isn't in stock at the moment. Therefore, it will take two to four weeks (according to the website) for Amazon orders to ship.
Either way, if you have your eye on this game, we recommend biting on one of these deals because Squeenix's $40 DS game standard hurts
: Amazon is trying to fool you into buying the copies that are
in stock for $39.79 (via Hubbagames), so don't fall for it. If the link directs you to the wrong place, you should see this
on the right side of your screen. Just click "Add to Cart" on the choice that says $29.99, and voilà.
