Newegg has the Hunter edition of AvP down to $29.99 for both the PS3 and 360 versions. I believe that's the lowest it's sold for.

PS3

360

And if you happen to get a facehugger that's broken (many are), just
go to www.help.sega.com and register, submit a new support ticket and one of the options is a AVP facehugger replacement

Sure, why not. I've always been keen to steelbooks and I can probably sell the facehugger (hopefully this one isn't broken)... although now I'll have to cancel the order I placed this morning at Newegg for the vanilla version. Thanks for the heads-up.

I'm not sure. I looked at some older threads here and I saw it was $37

The extras are worth it but the game is decent.

I really like this edition, and even the game sounds like they tried to make something that would appeal to fans. Not many games have three separate campaigns in it, each with very different gameplay styles. It's too bad the end result didn't turn out all that great, but their heart certainly was in the right place I'd say.

Anyone know who, the company sending out new facehugger models out was? And if they still are? I believe EVERY facehugger comes broken due to the way they were packaged.

It's through sega: http://www.sega.com/facehugger/

And I wouldn't say it's every single one, but many/most of them yes.

It has dropped to 29.99 now, and the 360 version is the same price. I just picked up one for the 360 since it has significantly less screen tearing.

Also, thank you ssjmichael for the facehugger replacement link.

Ironically, I stumbled upon this deal while trying to look up Express coupons.. lol. It happened to be in the sidebar. I then came on here to see if it had been posted yet, and found this thread. Anyways, I decided to pick one up. I've heard mixed reviews on the game, but as a big Alien fan, I couldn't pass up the replica facehugger for that price, considering they're going for $30+ alone on ebay. :)

Is it true that the single player campaign was ok while it was mostly the multiplayer that was broken and terrible? If that's the case, I may be in for one.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

The problem with multiplayer is the terrible melee system they introduced.

Spend your money on AvP and AvP2 on the PC. Both are superior games.

You're not getting a perfect facehugger.

I think he was asking if he has to send the defective one back.

I am so tempted on this just for the nice Steelbook

Anyone else notice the facehugger replacement site is gone? I tried it two days ago and it was still active, but nothing to be found this morning.

If anyone is on the fence, I agree and would advise staying away. However, if you're a hardcore AVP fan, these are some tempting goodies.

I just finished the game last week, and it was, IMO, the worst game I've played on my PS3. MP is broken and community is dead. Campaign modes are short and disappointing. Fun to play as Predator, the novelty of being an Alien gave way to nausea quickly because of poor controls/camera, and the Soldier compaign was ill conceived and hackneyed.
I got the game for free and regretted it.

Ugh, and I've already blown money on Acti/EA XBL sales and Undead Nightmare, which I probably shouldn't have done.

Don't tempt me, cheap collector's edition thing.
