Thanks for the deal! Going to try and hold out a bit longer to see if it gets around the $30 mark :)

Is this the same as the first print runs of the games?

But anyway, here's to hoping they'll list the PS3 version.

I read this as 14.99 with FS and I almost flipped a full circle in my bed. Darn my dyslexia-ness when I wake up from a nap :P

To me the whole LE thing just wasn't worth it. Buy it now, if you really want it, but the extra stuff was just fluff. These soundtracks are always made available over the web, and the tutorials are nothing more than an annoying IGN person showing you the moves in low resolution (really ugly presentation).

Don't care about the premium pack. I just want the PS3 version for $30, at the most.

IIRC they had tournament players doing the tutorials. They did for Iron Tager at least.

At this point, one might as well wait for continuum shift. I bought this day one, never regretted it.

Yes, but it'll be six months at least before it hits in the states. $40 is entirely worth it for this game, if you will play it between now and when the sequel actually comes out.

Huh? Last time I checked, it was a documentary on the Soviets.. :-s

I got my LE BB for $60 and haven't regret it so far. In fact, it's the first I wouldn't want to let go from my collection. :)

Really tempting as none of the Gamestops (out of 4) or even Best Buy or Wal-mart near me carries the 360 version of this game. I can't figure out why..

Why are they calling it the Premium Pack? It's the LE.

I'll vouch for the tutorials, though. The strategy sections are a little meh, but the combo demos I found very useful when first starting out.

This game is worth every penny.

Although the LE is disappointing except for the soundtrack. But it wasn't like anyone had to pay extra for the LE when it first came out, it was the only version for awhile until it "ran out of stock".

This game pwns. The visuals are great and the fighting mechanics are spot on.

The LE version was a real treat as it was being sold for $60, just like the regular version.. it was just a matter of getting your hands on an LE.

I also doubt the LE is going to hit the $30 mark. I don't think they made too many of these, and the PS3 version was sold out at a shitload of major retailers (including Amazon) right when the game released. I'm just assuming there's more 360 copies around because they printed more or just because people like me prefer getting their fighters for the PS3.

Edit:

Online is still okay on the PS3.. the problem is that most of the time, you're being matched up with a real avid player as many noob players moved on or are the more veteran players now. The learning curve is pretty easy for the game, but mastering it is hard. Didn't even attempt to as I didn't have hours a day to simply commit to one game. The girlfriend still likes playing this once in a while though because with Noel, you can just button mash like shit and still get a win every now and then. Haha.

Wasn't the LE a free upgrade to the people that pre-ordered?

At least it was for me which makes it well worth it. This was the best fighting game this year.

Yep, I'm level 42 on the PS3. I don't see anyone to beat-up below level 10 anymore. :lol:

Yeah, I bought it a couple months after its release and most were Japanese players, I think. Maybe if the lobby system didn't blow so hard.

BlazBlue punishes button mashers when doing counters. She probably just gets lucky by spamming the easy specials in the non-ranked rooms. Ranked on the other hand doesn't allow easy specials, and any button masher there will get their butts handed to them.

Hmm, this seems oddly familiar. Wasn't there a website selling the LE a few months ago and it turned out they just had the regular edition, or am I remembering that wrong?
