$15 for Injustice after the pm and promo would be awesome, assuming Amazon matched tru. Might just put one on hold at bb/target in case.

Incredible. I held off since I didn't pre-order and thought there might be a $40~ deal within a few months. This is more and quicker than even I had figured.

Slightly worried they'll sell out - how's the stock usually on this kind of thing at TRU? Though I see the deals pop up from time to time, I don't buy many games there. Don't suppose you can buy early and adjust later?

Rumor has it: Lobo, Zod, Batgirl and.....Scorpion from MK. So take that as a gauge on if its worth it. So other then Zod the DLC is disappointing IMO


If Lobo is going to be a playable character, I think I'm going to have to get this game now. How can anyone turn down beating the snot out of Supes with The Main Man for only $35 so close to release?

Bought this at $60 w/Gamestop trade-in credit. Love the game, but wish I had waited. I'd have rather parted with $35 cash.

Lobo has already been confirmed by Netherealm to be their first DLC character.

Awesome. Count me in for one, then. I haven't been interested in the game until I saw this price, and now Lobo DLC has chomping at the bit to pick up a copy on Sunday.

They do. They just changed it a little. Competitor pm can only be done at time of purchase. No more coming later and getting a adjustment. You can still get adjustments i believe if youre updating a Best Buy price. Also less days to adjust.

Makes no sense, BB not PM'ing post-purchase anymore. Anyone could just buy a new copy, PM for $35 and return that copy with their original $60 receipt.

Is there an Online Pass for the game? I know there was one for MK.

So I'm guessing this sale is because there will be a ton of DLC. I know there are 32 characters total when including DLC characters. I just want to rent the game to play story mode. Geez Redbox, what's taking you so long to get the game. There aren't any fighter at Redbox anymore, so I really expect Injustice to fill that void.

And saying just that will get you the post purchase pm generally. The issue is for non silver members they're limited to just 14 days where as silver still have 60. I was already told by more than 1 store that they will still pm up to 60 days competitor or not they don't wanna lose sales.
Judging by the feedback on the BB forums pages I don't see the current policy remaining in full but so long before it gets changed again.

Given WB's attitude towards Redbox with movies (WB movies aren't in until after 30 days have passed and they've been in court on that issue many times) I doubt WB wants any of their games in Redbox at all. Did Batman or Witcher 2 ever get added to Redbox?

Us in the midwest at least have Family Video as an option, and there's also a Midwest distro center for Gamefly now in KC so that could be an option also.

And why isn't Zod dissapointing? As a Superman skin with his own unique voiceover/intro/win animation, yeah, Zod is cool. But as a whole new character? No. Not when we don't have Brainiac, Martian Manhunter, Beast Boy, Darkseid, Starfire, Terra, Batman II (Terry McGuinness), Parasite, Metallo, ect.

Keep in mind I very rarely touch comics, this is coming from a fan of the DCAU. I imagine someone who actually does read the comics could come up with 100's more.

And frankly, Scorpion is just insulting. Without the fatalities, and when the DC Universe is SO rich with characters.... WHY would you put in Scorpion? I've read all over that coding for these DLC's are in the game, but I've seen no actual evidence/proof, does anyone have a linK?

I really, REALLY hope Scorpion is NOT in the game. I love how this is a superhero fighting game. To be honest, I would pay for MORE superheroes after the first four. But I rather not have a MK character in the mix. And other heroes besides more Batman and Superman characters. There is so much fan service in the game, adding characters fans care about would be awesome. Still, Zod and Batgirl could be cool.
Ok then, knuckle up.

I don't think he would be a reskin. More of a rushdown powerhouse then Superman who has a good zoning game. More deserving characters yes. But are they in a movie thats coming out like Zod? That's why I think it's true

I think they are marketing Zod and Scorpion to people like me. I really don't know DC guys past the old Justice League. I know Batman, Super Man, Wonder Woman, Aqua Man, Flash, Green Lantern, and I remember Hawkman and a few others, but don't know most of the rest of the DC guys at all. I know Zod from Superman 2 and will probably get him. And at least I know Scorpion (although I don't think I will pay for him), so it was someone they could have though I would have a chance at buying. I doubt I will buy much of the DLC, but who knows? Maybe one of the new characters will intriuge me.

I'm not happy with Zod (and the rest) if the list is true. I like to believe those are place holder names (besides Lobo cause it sounded like he was going to be in the game before he was announced) just to trick us. And I'll be mad if Scorpion is in cause Boon said he wouldn't add any MK characters in. He wants to treat both series as two different things. And don't need another Batfam.

No. You need to tattoo the ad to your abs for them to price match. Not to sound like a jerk but very similar questions are always asked every time there's a ad that really takes a few scroll downs to find out or a visit to Best Buy dedicated topics on this site or the official PM policy on Best Buy site.

The ad isn't online cause the sale isn't live. The ad will be up Sunday during the start of the sale. It should be instore (and most likely online too) since there is a physical ad. Just wait a few days.

Injustice seems to be selling quite well, and just like Mortal Kombat back in 2011 which moved over a million copies in the US in less than a month; this sales from specific retailers are no indication of the performance of the game.

Toys R us has been known for ding this sales in general too. Is why during the launch they gave out a free strategy guide and an action figure with purchases; since otherwise they wouldn't sell the game per se (at least not as much as other retailers). Other retailers also had exclusive preorder extras.

You can do that, though if you do it enough times in a short enough period of time BB will ban you from future returns, usually for 90 - 180 days.

That's why they take your license # down for returns.

Somebody asked when Injustice was coming to Redbox on the facebook page and they responded with stating there were no plans on receiving copies of the game for rentals. So... there you go.

As I said, WB hates Redbox, they've gone to court over movies so I doubt they're going to allow their games to be rented at all by Redbox.
