Of course they can price match Amazon and get the lower price but even then I'd be willing to bet most regular shoppers won't want to bother with the added hassle.

Best Buy will be out of the physical media game by the end of the year at this rate. Writing has been on the wall for some time now but this is the final nail in the coffin if it's a permanent change.
oh I didn't say it was a good idea.

I'm sure that it's tough being profitable in today's e-commerce market but Best Buy's board room is completely out of touch.

lol to BB thinking that people are going to buy stuff at MSRP. BB had this planned all along as they want to get rid of blurays as they bring them no profit and just want to be a display store for crap. Also this hurts us all because Amazon is a price matcher, so if there spiders go and search and see BB's prices they have no reason to lower them. Thankfully...we still kind of have WM and Target for Amazon to PM but Target seems to always forever be OOS when stuff sells out. In the long run it looks like RS is going to be the last of the last places for us anime collectors to get marginally priced anime without it being damaged.

All this means is I won't be buying anime from them anymore. Hopefully Rightstuf and Amazon continue to offer decent discounts as long as I live.

Back in the heyday Best Buy used to have a lot of hidden deals on various anime, like vol. 1 boxes for $10. I think they were posted on Animeondvd.com, otherwise you'd wouldn't know since they usually still had the normal price. I got so many of those, and it was always nice seeing the surprise on the clerk's face when I had them price check to make sure.

BB decided to raise anime prices again. Glad I already have this.

Nothing personnel, kids, but it's either a down payment on a house or Whisper of the Heart. Choose wisely.

I thought it was a joke, but you’re not f*cking kidding around.

Those better be pricing errors. I couldn't afford $240,000 for those ghibli movies.

Oh, I guarantee it is. It’s just a very absurd mistake to make especially after BB raised their prices on anime. Insert foot into mouth.
