My local store had one in RSS though it couldn't be found. A nearby store has a few copies. I'll probably just rent it since it's so short anyway.

Picked one up earlier at the BB in Hiram, Ga. They had two left.

Played it for about an hour or so earlier... Really funny and solid gameplay, now I want Lollipop Chainsaw even more! :lol:

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?

It's a much better cover, but the ESRB would have thrown a fit. :roll:

Haha, can't do it since I know her from a professional setting. Never saw her with minimal clothing as in the art cover though... I can wish can't I?

I know this deal is only for the PS3, but is either platform more superior than the other?

If you're looking for this for 360, and you don't care about used...and you're not sitting on a mountain of Best Buy credit, with Hastings 30% off you can get it for about the same price, around $11 including delivery.

You can find a very detailed comparison here.

Here's the conclusion they came to:

As for which version you should go for given the choice: both come recommended, each having its own plus points and minor issues. The additional texture clarity due to the use of better filtering on the PS3, along with improved assets streaming perhaps has more of a noticeable impact than the motion blur or the lighting advantages on 360. Performance however, favours Microsoft's console, although the differences in this respect didn't negatively affect the gameplay at all on PS3. In the final analysis, we find that the two are very close overall, but in the end the PS3 version comes across as being the slightly better of the two by a small margin.

This blows, there are 8 Best Buys within 25 minutes of me and they are all out of stock, assuming the store locator stock checker is accurate.

you may want to call/check for yourself. If stock is 3 or less, it'll show up as not available online.

Thanks, I'll check around. A lot of the Best Buys around me just search the website when you call to ask, which obviously doesn't do me any good. Maybe I'll try to have them check by SKU.

None in the western NC stores at all. The waynesville store guy checked. 8(

But they did have Kingdom of Amalur, so I used the magazine coupon to snag that for $10.

Well, none of my local stores have it in stock...however, they have the "ship to store" option, but it's still $19.99. Either way, I've been looking to pick this game up for awhile. If they don't honor the $9.99 price when I pick it up, $20 certainly isn't a bad deal either. Thanks OP.
