Hey guys, is there any fundamental difference between the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions of Street Fighter IV? Which copy would you guys get? I will most likely be getting a fighting stick for it, which has me leaning towards the PS3 version (since my 360 is pretty loud and I'm iffy on it's reliability). Thanks!

Sorry, for the 360. I also asked in the deal requests forum, but figured I'd hedge my bets by asking here as well. lol.

I'm trying to get ahold of the Madcatz Street Fighter 4 fightpad for PS3 in Toronto. They started coming into BestBuy stores in the US yesterday, if anyone sees one anywhere can you let me know? EB was taking pre-orders, but they stopped before I had a chance to put one it. I don't know of any other stores that are carrying them in Canada, hopefully BestBuy does. It doesn't appear on BestBuy.com or .ca, and it is on Amazon.com but not .ca.

Oh great, now I'm hearing that Best Buy isn't going to be carrying the PS3 version of the fightpad. It's not in the system.

Does anyone know if EB still allows pre-orders to be shifted around? Resident Evil 5 isn't on the list for this month (employee showed me the list tonight) and I was considering pre-ordering one of the listed titles then shifting (bet nobody saw that coming).

Bueller?

They should allow it. You just need your receipt.

i preordered a copy on the 4th w/ the trade 3 deal. the manager there even checked the list to make sure. next time you go in to preorder the placeholder game, try to preorder re5 again. maybe you'll have better luck or they'll have an updated list.

I think my local wal-mart has Armored Core for Answer mispriced at $18.93 (probably was supposed to be Armored Core 4?) Is this game even worth $20?

i can't speak from personal experience. the pre-order bonuses are rarely worth it to me. But my understanding that if you pre-order but don't pick up you 'lose your place'. They may give your game away if they need to but you don't lose your money or anything. It stays there (unless you ask for it back or transferred) and it still counts towards your purchase whenever they get the game back again.

Not everyone needs to look like a 16 year old girl cosplaying a 16 year old boy, every-Japanese-artist-ever.

All right, I have a question that I hope some of you will be able to answer.
Since the middle of January, I've fully paid off a SF4 PS3 TE stick at EB. However, with the variety of problems it has (SRK tech talk forums) and the fact that I already have an HRAP2SA , I've decided to get a 360 arcade. However, I'm hoping to get one with a jasper motherboard. Does anyone know if any of the current arcade bundles (with pacman and 4 other games) have been found to be jasper or were the first jasper arcades released with sega superstars tennis?

Not a exactly a video game related question but I am looking for some of the Crystal Head Vodka and I know it's made in Canada but they don't have it at my local liquor stores so I was just wondering if anyone else had seen it? In short where my skull at?

It should be available at liquor stores in Maritimes, but I doubt it is in Ontario LCBO.

Yeah I figured they would have it out there but I'm not sure what the legal rules on shipping liquor from province to province would be.

Shit a $100 that sucks cause its only like $40-$60 in the states we are getting taxed up the ass for liquor that is made in our own country. At my source they don't even have it but they said they could order in a shipment for me but it would have to be a case load which if it turns out to be about $100 a bottle would be very expensive. Guess I will wait to hear back from my local LC but if it's that expensive I would totally rather pay someone to ship me out a bottle or two if anyone is interested.

Shipping might be a problem. I tried to get my friend in NFLD to ship me a bottle, but Canada Post, UPS, etc. wouldn't do it because alcohol is "potentially" combustible.

Methinks if the delivery truck catches fire they've got bigger problems than a bottle of 40% vodka.

I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask, but I figured I'd try anyway. I'm planning on importing a game from play-asia (the Rockman Dash Value Pack, after shipping it should end up being over $50 Canadian), but I've never imported anything before, so I'm not sure on how this works. Would I have to pay import taxes or anything like that?

Or is there a cheaper place to import games to Canada other than play-asia?

I usually use P-A to import my games since they usually have sales, tho I don't know if they're the cheapest.

And in terms of customs, it's a coin flip if they'll charge you or not tho I find if your order is under a certain amount (20-25), it's less likely you'll get charged.
