Your GS is pricing wrong. Tropical Freeze and Mario World used in the system are now less then the Selects price and the rest, except NES Remix which they didn't seem to get, should be as well.

Some Gamestops are really slow to change the labels, but they should all be updated in the system.

I just picked up the LAST copy of Pikmin 3 at my local Best Buy (was in the back storeroom) and after breaking the shrink wrap confirmed no game manual! A flyer inside pointing out the manual can be read online. Turns out around a year ago WiiU games no longer include a printed manual, just the stupid flyer stating the manual can be streamed from online. For example, WiiU NES Remix even original appears to not ever include a printed manual. :roll:

Checking online, no Gamestop (over 30 locations) in my area has a used copy of Pikmin 3 in stock. I wanted to verify if the original came with a manual. Of note, the few Gamestop stores I visited yesterday mentioned they have not seen Pikmin 3 for quite some time and already sold out of the Selects version.

I also confirmed as in the other Selects games, Wii Super Mario All Stars does not include a manual. No Bonus Soundtrack CD or History Book or outer box to house both cases. :?

==========================================================

1. Buy WiiU Pikmin 3 while you can, the disc version will definitely shoot up in price!

2. Buy the original Wii Super Mario All Stars if you want the manual. Search ALL the Gamestop locations, just maybe on a slim chance might find the outer box, History Book and Sound Track CD.
OR
3. Wii Mario All Stars Bonus Sound Track with History Book is currently averaging for only ten dollars online. Buy the newer selects or original locally and order the bonus material online from Ebay immediately. That bonus CD Red DVD Case with History Book will also shoot up in price as others try to "CIB" the newer selects incomplete release. As mentioned earlier, the rarest item of this game would be the original release outer cardboard box!

CRT: how did you not know that about the manuals? I've never seen a 3ds or wii u title with a manual. I know they're doing it to save paper/money but come on....I'd rather have a physical manual. Please nintendo kill some trees XD

I literally couldn't care less about the lack of a manual.

I wish they still included manuals, but it's a very minimal care for me.

I used to read game manuals if they had cool extra story details or something in there that wasn't available anywhere, which manuals haven't had in like 20 years.

I also used to read them on the bus home after I bought a new game to give me something to do until I could play. My games generally get posted straight to my door now so why bother?

I like manuals alot. I often find myself looking through gameboy and genesis manuals and just laughing at the stories and cheesy jokes, or checking out spell lists for rpgs and such. I love when they used to include mini maps
