I decided to jump on this if and only if I can get my birthday code to stack with the deal. My birthday code has said invalid, even when I use it without this code. Talking to EA rep right now. Will update soon.

The % coupon code do expire. I just found out about that last week.

I am semi tempted, but I will wait until the inevitable $40 price drop, followed by the 60% off flash deal.

Anyone else have trouble getting Free Shipping for this deal?

Trying to order in California, but getting a 6.99 shipping charge.
Discount of Xbox version to 29.99 showing correctly, but shipping still adds that price.

wow the 360 version looks way better. I am suprised, usually the ps3 stomps the xbox. I own both consoles.


Generally, most multi-platform games look better and perform better on the 360. Recently, though, most games are about equal. I'd say Alice: Madness returns looks better on the 360 by a slight margin going by comparison screen shots on the Lens of Truth website.

While I can't speak for Alice directly, I highly suggest those with both a ps3 & 360 to try and remember to check Euro-Gamer's Digital Foundry face-offs regarding multi-console releases. Along with screenshots (which are also available from Lens of Truth*), they have detailed breakdowns with actual direct-feed video to compare each game, which I find infinitely more compelling than static images with gimmicky sliders and magnification.

My two cents, take it or leave it.

*edit*
To be clear, Lens of Truth & Digital Foundry do NOT share screen captures. I was merely pointing out that Lens of Truth seems to ONLY offer still frames, instead of video.

Currently Playing:
:ps3: MGS Peace Walker HD

:360: n/a
:pc: Hearthstone, Sam & Max S1E04; Spec Ops The Line

Add me on Steam, we'll play games and stuff:

REDEMPTION

Hey I just received my birthday code yesterday !

Somehow I still managed to receive the deal even though I'm well into 8/15 (eastern)

So for anyone who created a made up birthday a day after you made your account, check your emails.

So apparently, the free shipping from Origin is slow as balls. I ordered this the first morning it was posted, just got confirmation that it shipped. At least I have plenty of other stuff to play in the meantime.

I have used EA's free shipping at least a half a dozen times and I usually get the package next day or two days at max. It always really catches me off guard. Since it has shipped for you, expect it in a day or two max.

I got the fame recently on the ps3. I have been playing the original game. It looks great for being 10+ years old. The HD conversion really makes the game pop. The gameplay reminds me of Epic Mickey with blood.
