Just a heads up. Looks like a $10 Pricedrop and Amazon's third party merchants still have it for $50+

Sorry if this is a repost. I searched and didn't see it posted.

I think the code SAVER still works for free slow shipping at Gamestop.

That usually changes within a day or so. They tend to be very slow with updating used price drops when they list price drops for new copies.

i always love when the unknowing sales clerk is pushing used saying it'll save you a buck or two, and then i point out the used version is $5 more than the brand new still in shrinkwrap version and have a laugh at gamestop's slow price changes.

Good price, but not quite there yet...

I might have to buy it used because of the atrotious PH box art.

Wise decision. Only reason I got this game was that my GF at the time had a passing interest. Spend the $30 on something better like beer or pr0n. You'll thank me later.;)

Online yes, but in store its usually right away. I'd be willing to bet its already $25-28 used in store.

Yes, it's really the only fighter on the 360. It is extremely challenging but you'll get the hang of it and start to be pretty good over time.

If you're wanting a fighter right now - maybe. But if you can hold off until Virtua Fighter 5 comes along, I'd highly recommend you do so. Personally, as much fun as I have with the Dead or Alive games, they're pretty mindless and stupid in the overall scheme of things. I'd take Third Strike, Mark of the Wolves, or Virtua Fighter anyday over DOA. It especially seems like noobies in DOA like to switch out tag-team members for easy damage, as well as that hideously broken reversal system.

But yea...I play Dead or Alive when I'm bored and wanna have some quick stupid fun...Virtua Fighter is what I go to when I want to play something *good*. Then again...you could always just go play Smash Bros. Melee and get the best of both worlds...

Wow, this thread wised from the gwave.

I used the Best Buy GGC to get it $25 when it became platinum hits (with the ugly cover, unfortunately...BB sold out all the regular versions long before it became platinum). Currently you can use the 10% off EB/GS coupon to get this $27 new...I think it's the best deal for this game right now.

The thing I don't like about it is the new reversal system they've implemented into this version. Otherwise this is a very fun game that I've had some good times with. Hell I still havn't unlocked all of the costumes yet, maybe I'll finish that up today 8-)

I got my copy through a series of clearance items I bought for like 3-9 $ and then I traded them in and got nearly double-triple trade in at Gamecrazy than what I paid for them....:D

I got DOA4 the day it came out, and paid off Oblivion... DOA4 is awesome, takes a little while to get used to the controls and learn the system inside out but its worth it.

Ignore the gamers who don't know how to play the game - yes, it's a great fighting game. I know a good dozen people who gave it a shot and ended up loving it. It's a deep fighting game that's fairly easy to pick up, and the online play is probably my favorite on the 360.

(It's an especially good pick now that we know VF5 is going to have a stupid 1-on-1 only online setup. What a freaking waste.)

New reversal system..? What new reversal system? It's exactly the same one as in 2 and 3 and that's a major complaint from the hardcore DOA community. Don't know what you're talking about...

Anyway, I've got to pick up a second copy soon. All those hours of playing and the 360's disc scratching record has left my copy with a crack right on the inner ring.

This game is barely dropping to $29.99? Didn't it come out like December 05?

This and Perfect Dark Zero were the first games I bought when I bought my 360 in April 06. I know I'm in the huge minority but I think both are good games.

It's not exactly the same, particularly from DOA3 with its simpler three-point system, but it's pretty similar. I suspect they are talking about the tighter timing - this seems to mess up a lot of the more casual DOA vets. But DOA2U (which is most similar to DOA4) only sold to like a fifth of the people that bought DOA3 and DOA4, so it's probably partially that too.

I'm sure they're out there, but I can't remember seeing anybody from the hardcore DOA community complaining about the counter-hold system in 4. Damage levels, timing, and complexity all seem to be at a sweet spot for the series. At worst you have certain characters like Hayabusa getting too much advantage from punch counter-holds.

Well, this game has been selling well....:p I cant wait for DOA 5.

Timing for counters has been tightened. Also, mid-kicks have to be countered by pressing towards your opponent, rather than away (this change first appeared in DOA2U). These changes might not sound like much, but having four different countering possibilities, along with tightened timing, makes blindly countering a terrible idea against a skilled opponent.
