Sorry if it's a repost. I guess it's a price match to Origin.

This came out 2 weeks ago right? Christ EA is tanking. Same thing happened with Dead Space 3 and it didnt meet sales expectations. So I guess this didnt wither

The SP in this game is short as Fuck. I beat it in a little less then 7 hours on superhuman difficulty, multiplayer was fun but it can get a bit frustraing at times when you constantly get killed by invisible enemies.

With new consoles looming, the launch window for these types of lesser-known games is shrinking even faster. I wouldn't be surprised if this is $20 in the next month.

Pre-ordered this from Amazon for $60, comes with $20 credit for future purchase and original Crysis. Just chatted with Amazon and get credit for the price difference of $20. Not bad!

I will get it when to under $10. The single player is 5-6 hrs on normal so there are better games with more content that I want

But now a days wait a few weeks before buying since most games drop b $20 within first month

Davion:We’ll refund the price difference if the price drop occurred within 7 days of the delivery date. Since your item was delivered 14 days ago, I’m not able to refund the price difference.


I got dicked...this time.


I returned my Dead Space 3 copy and got it for $39.99 on the gold box day. Could not do it this time because I used the Dead Space 3 pre-order credit to buy Crysis 3. Once you use the credit, you cannot get it back. Oh well.

They are not tanking, but yes, it obviously didn't sell very well. EA can afford to do these temporary price drops. They do it like clockwork now. Guaranteed that 2 weeks after Army of Two 3 Cartel (or whatever its called) comes out, it too will hit $40 after 14 days.

Anyway, just bought Crysis 3 for 360.

Pretty much the price they sold it for at launch considering they gave a $20 credit on top.

I ended up getting a $20 refund from Amazon. Emailed them asking if they pricematched and they gave me the 7 day excuse but a one time refund of $20. I've also been an Amazon prime member for 5 years and haven't ever contacted their customer service about issues like that before.

Thankfully I canceled my pre-order. Nothing against the game, but amazon had it sitting there un-shipped for 3 days after release, so I decided to cancel since I was getting pissed at them. I'll probably get the Origin deal since I have a birthday coupon from them.

Under 1,000 people playing mid day on xbox. I will be returning it tomorrow because the game is dying very rapidly. I saw all good reviews and even a lot of people on youtube playing multiplayer. I didn't expect the game to be dead.
Edit:
Can't return at Best Buy so I guess I'm stuck with it. That is the last time I buy a game at Best Buy.

Was thinking about buying it for $40. I played parts of 1 and 2 on the PC. I'll probably rent it on Gamefly and complete the single player.

And for your return attempt, you should already know that you cannot return a game that is opened...unless you're going to return the $40 copy you'll buy @ Gamestop/Amazon

You really expected BB to accept a return on a game you opened and played? Is there any other retailer out there that would allow you to do that?

I had the same thought! I won't pre-order another EA game again. I've already "learned" that there's no need to buy an Assassin's Creed title for at least a month or two after it comes out. Will be $29.99 by then. Now I've learned that the $20 Game Credit on EA titles mean absolutely nothing too.

Damn you mean I cant return my 1000 inch TV I bought for the Super Bowl and get my 1 million dollars back???? What kind of policy is that Best Buy? Last time I buy from you. Only reason I didnt buy it from Amazon was because Amazon wanted to charge me $3.99 for next day delivery. WTF Amazon seriously. You take my million and want 4 extra bucks.

Just curious to people buying this-- You could have preordered and got a $20 Amazon gift cert, plus some DLC. If $40 was your buy price for this game, what was stopping you two weeks ago?
