I don't know if this counts, but even though its the full 59.99, I was at Best Buy today doing some shopping and they had tons of copies out on the floor for purchase. The game is not due out till next month!

This goes in Regional...I am sure people would be happy to see that.

Wish my BB was stupid enough to do this...

Did you check to make sure it's not "pre-order" boxes?

I am positive it was not the pre-order boxes. I do not have pics, if I end up going back I will get pictures. You just have to trust me on this. I don't know if it would be safe playing it on XBOX live so early, but they defiantly had it.

Microsoft can't and won't fault people who legally purchased their game from a retail outlet that broke street date.. Only if the copy they are playing is due to a modded console of some sort.

As long as its a legit copy they can't do anything. Reviewers and insiders get games early all the time.

Interesting. I just checked the item availability on the Best Buy website and it says that the 360 version is available at 6 of the nearest Best Buys here in NC. I may have to look into this.

You will most likely be wasting your time. Best Buy does this with all preorders. Notice how when you select pick up it says "Store Pickup: Pre-order (available on release date)" If they have it on the floor, you may be in luck. It just depends if their computers let them go through.

Try it with God Of War or any other preorder and it does the same.

I just happened to check to see what it would say if I searched for God of War III and Final Fantasy XIII and it says that they are both also available at these same 6 locations. So unless these are the most awesome Best Buys in the country, I'm starting to have my doubts.

If they had FFXIII in stock, they are. They most definitely are to me.

She's got a tiny little head, the demo's not bad you kind of forget about it here and there but then in no time there it is again taunting you. That tiny little head ... I sure hope you can unlock big head mode so you can play it and she looks normal.

Well the game specifically emphasizes that she isn't a human, so maybe that explains it? lol

I feel if you can get passed the ridiculous character designs here, Bayonetta is an amazing game.

I know a lot of gamers snickered at this game when it first appeared. Probably in part because Sega's name was on it, and well, it featured yet another scantily dressed female lead character (i.e. Nightshade, Tenchu: Fatal Shadows, etc.).

But I figured this one would be different. After all, it's directed by Hideki Kamiya - who if you don't know was one of the core members of Clover 7. I think he was the director behind Okami, too, and well, that was a rather high-quality, AAA game, for those who still refuse to pay for and buy that game.

I'm totally getting this for the 360. I recall hearing that the 360 version is superior here due to the fact that the PS3 port was not handled by Platinum Games.

Bayonetta is a decent game. The bosses are incredible, but there seems to be more cutscenes than gameplay. If you like Devil May Cry gameplay, you'll probably like this one. It wasn't everything I thought it would be, and on that note I give it a 6/10.
