Just ordered one for $11.99 no problem. FWIW, I'm using Firefox browser. Great price and I'm surprised they heavily discounted a very decent Vita game.

Thanks OP, snagged a copy of Modnation Racers. I was even more surprised that this was eligible for free shipping.

Definitely worth it for 11.99 USD. Picked it up for my brother in anticipation for his big graduation gift he will be getting this weekend.

Wow.
I was never impressed with the ps3 version for its 'even worse than Mario Kart' rubber band A.I.
This seems to be a turd even in comparison to that. So, don't jump on it just 'cause it's cheap:
- 30 seconds or more wait time between races (for a cartridge based portable...ughh!)
- Framerate drops to nearly unplayable when many characters on screen (happens quite often)
- No online play
- wonky touch screen controls.

Never had the interest in this game, but got my attention at $12. After reading several reviews, I think I'll skip even at $12.

Yesterday, I traded my copy I got for $9.99 at Target from their trade in deal to Best Buy for $23.10. I enjoyed the game and I bought another copy at this price. While it's no Mario Kart, the game is fun and the customization and track building is excellent.

Posted this in the coupon thread but will repost.

Sorta interested in RE: ORC, but after asking 2 RL friends who have it if they'd want to run through the campaign, neither was interested. "Not even for the achievements bro."

:(

One did text me back saying "I'll run through the campaign with you if you really want to, since we can knock it out in 3-4 hours tops. But no multiplayer."

Sucks, I was hyped about this till release and was scared off by bad reviews.

I'm going to use a little gs credit to get a game to trade in along with my mlb 11 the show to bestbuy to cover the cost of this game and then flip modnation back for over 20 bucks. When I read that operation racoon city is going on sale for 18 bucks this is a no brainer to do. It covers the cost of resident evil and I have extra left over :)

If it holds till lunch, I'm doing this. Pick up at customer service, trade in at gamers kiosk.
I was looking for a website for ass gaming, but I found this one instead.

I just bought one and immediately traded it in, and what of it?

-I didn't take the last copy
-I ran my plan by the rep before I even purchased it... she not only said it was OK, but was going to do the same thing herself
-how is this any different than buying a cheap game at another store, running over to BB immediately and trading it in for double or more than what you paid (hint: it's not)

SInX4Lyfe: go ahead and do what you want to. Just don't buy the last copy - be kind to your fellow gamers.

not sure if you are joking, but...

didn't they reduce it to a limit of 1 of the same game per year?

I think they said it depends on the bestbuy people.. But i wouldn't risk it. I traded 2 mw3 ps3 copies the same day. (my friend was with me and one copy was his but he was underage so i had to do it for him) and i had no problem
