Saw this deal on Kotaku deals, rarely see them scoop the CAG community on a deal so figured I'd post it here.

Like any good CAG I secured my own copy before spreading the word. I can only find the 360 edition but it came out to be $52 after tax.

 

This is worth it for the game parts alone, SFxT and SSF IV:Arcade Edition both with all DLC and the download hd remakes of 2 and 3 are worth beyond this. Add in a (somewhat thin) artbook, HUGE soundtrack, documentary and cartoon, statue and Ryu belt and this is a fan wet dream.

I find it funny that the 360 version comes with blu-rays.

I just went back through the description and saw that and found it amusing, luckily I also have a PS3 so it doesn't bother me. Even so, I imagine people with no blu ray player would still prefer blu-ray over the 360's original attempt at high def video with their HD DVD add on...not that useful these days.

The only thing I'd want out of it is the OST. Good deal though.

Oh, I dont doubt people would prefer the blu-rays. I just thought it was funny because, well, you know. I agree though, good deal for a wealth of content if you're a fan.

Holy Schnikies this is tempting.

 

Also, I find it interesting that the pose Ryu has struck in the statue is him doing Ken's "signature" move.  But it's whatever. :)

How much was it there? I think they had the PS3 version on clearance too, so that's more enticing with the added Alpha games.

It will go lower if there any left. Groupon had it for $69.99 for a whole week last week and didn't sale many which is probably why they lowered the price $20 so maybe if the sale does bad this time around again they might lower it to $29.99. Lol one can hope

FYI, if you install the Groupon app on an Android or iOS device, you may be prompted with a $10 off "New device" coupon.  I wasn't able to duplicate this on my phone but I was able to do so with my sister-in-law's old phone.  Ordered for $39.99 + tax!

Huhhhhh....

 

I wonder if Groupon would refund the difference to me if they did lower the price? :)

Really wish I hadn't missed out on the ~$25 deal at Capcom's store a few weeks ago. Was sold out almost instantly and never restocked. :(

PS3 version has held it's value and sold out pretty quickly after launch. The 360 version has been hanging around the Capcom store and Best Buy to be clearanced. GS has been sold out since launch week.

 

Lots of people have shit all over this because of Capcom's DLC policies (which suck but still this gets you just about everything just no disk) but the value of the extras just can't be ignored.

Capcom got all kinds of shit for the original SF 4 CE video disc being a 360-game DVD not playable on anything but a 360.

What are the details of this exactly? Exp date, minimum purchase, etc? TIA

That's crazy, chances are you at the very least had a 360 if you bought it, why not just watch it on that? People go nuts about anything I guess. But it's basically the same case ,only opposite, with the blu-rays, as the 360 cant do anything with them.

Yes, details are in order. :)

  1. Spend $30 or more to get $10 off an order.
  2. There is a pop-up in the first page of the app that mentions the promotion is only good for 24 hours, presumably from when it presents itself.

The set's original MSRP was $149.99. It sells well below that (even on PS3) brand new online. When it first came out many people were acting like if you didn't pre-order or buy it immediately then you'd never get an affordable copy.

Seems to have sold out just as I was checking out.... ugh. It let me add it to my cart, tried to buy it and got some weird error messages then it dropped out of my cart and said sold out.

The picture quality was worse since it was a 360 game and not a straight DVD. The PS3 version (original SF 4 CE) sold out upon release because of the Blu-Ray and the 360 version sat on shelves, getting as cheap as $15 at BB at one point.

Didn't Resident Evil 6 Anthology have more games on PS as well? (Xbox got Archives which much less games).

$60 for FIVE kick ass games? With a BUNCH of extras?

And some of you are COMPLAINING about the price?

Youre not a CAG, just a CMF!! lol
