Looks like the same PD's that have been going around (FC to 29, SNK to 29), though i'm suprised to already see MK:D start sliding.. and what's up with Sonic Heroes, is that going to PH soon or something? Timt to pricematch at BB and use the GGC, right? $15 for Sonic Heroes doesn't seem too bad..

Make sure you get the cube version of sonic heroes if at all possible, it's supposed to look a lot nicer then the other versions, also the other versions are supposed to have some issues with slow down.

According to EGM the Xbox version has the best graphics. Plus the Gamecube version is only in English.

Avoid SNK vs Capcom at all cost, even if it DOES price drop.

According to Gamespot

" Unfortunately, it seems that the Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions of the game didn't receive the same care that the superior GameCube version did, thus making their Sonic Heroes harder games to appreciate"

" Unlike the GameCube version released earlier this month, both the Xbox and PlayStation 2 versions of the game suffer from inconsistent frame rates. However, the PlayStation 2 version is easily the ugliest of the three"

"The occasional bouts of slowdown that the Xbox version suffers from are forgivable, but Sonic Team almost seems to be daring you to try and have fun with the PlayStation 2 version by making it significantly uglier, slower, and generally just rougher around the edges than the other two versions"

I've played all three versions, and the Cube version is significantly better.

Gamecube is the best of the three...which unfortunately doesnt help the gameplay, just the graphics/control.

SNK vs Capcom and Sonic Heroes for $50 is really tempting. Too bad BB doesn't have any SH copies left. But but if it's goes ti a PH I'd rather get it in the new packaging.

Sonic Heroes for the GC also unlocks a special card in PSO ep. III, so if you own it that's an added incentive to get the 'cube version of SH.

And Sonic, Amazing Island, and PSO III all appear to have taken universal price drops this month.

Your Best Buy lets you pricematch + use GGC discount?

Your alternative is to use a GGC coupon at Circuit City, and buy it there, since Circuit City allows you to pricematch competitors coupons.

I dunno, the last thing I bought at Best Buy was ESPN NHL 2K5 the day it came out. I don't even have a GGC or know if they're available here. I was just stating for others.

Are you absolutely sure CC allows pricematching for competitors coupons?

I dunno but around here my CCs seem strict about PMing...

I'd totally buy Sonic Heroes... if I didn't hate the demo included with Mario Kart. I loved Sonic Adventure 1 and 2, but Heroes was just no fun at all.

And as for the GC version being only in English... that's my language.

Halo 2 LE seems to be a universal drop, since Gamestop also has it for that price (Best Buy should follow suit soon). Strange that all these Limited Editions/Collector's Editions are droping in price faster than the regular games, the same thing happened to Half-life to CE and Warcraft 3 CE.

This is good news. I've been waiting for Sonic Heroes to go Player's Choice for awhile now, and this looks like a sign of it. (Has to have the yellow strip to match my other three Sonic games. :D) Does anyone know this for certain, and when it'll actually happen?

Let me have my toaster and my TV and my steel-belted radials and I won't say anything. Just leave us alone!' Well, I'm not going to leave you alone. I want you to get mad!"

I just couldn't get into Sonic Adventure 1 or 2. I like the old 2D Sonic titles, but the transition to 3D just doesn't do it for me.

Don't hold your breath. This game sold badly on all playforms. The price has gone down because retailers want to be rid of the damn thing.

Actually I think Sonic Heroes sold well over a million worldwide, something like 300,000 on GC, 200,000 on PS2 and 80,000 on X-Box in North American alone

He he he..

anyways, this is something that has been said from two posters here: The GC version looks better, we have compared. Now, there might be something with widescreen or higher resolution, but the people that can actually use that normally do research before buying a game. Either way, both language tracks are annoying as sin
