Crap, I coulda saved $3. ;)

Oh well, anyone with an Xbox who doesn't own this game has absolutely no excuse now.


I could've saved the $2 Bestbuy.com shipping and few cents tax!

Sheesh!! First Ridge Racer 6 dropping universally (after BB was the only $19.99 for a day), now this. I gotta learn to be patient!

(and I have to say, Prime is *addictive*. I never thought I'd want it but I have really enjoyed being able to pick up Amazon deals without filler. Sure, it's $80 or whatever a year but over enough orders it works out... it goes against being a cheapass but I am really tempted to let it renew when my trial runs out...)

Hmm worth $5 shipped with Prime?

(it's not BC so I may not ever be able to play it)

You're not the only one. I think they really knew what they were doing giving out that 3-month trial. I've found that not only are there great game deals, but their new-release dvd prices are often comparable to the b&m deals - but without the 10% sales tax I'm forced to endure. Just ordered V For Vendetta 2-disk version for $20, which was the cheapest I saw it anywhere. Except locally that would have been $22. ;)

A friend of mine is probably going to split the cost with me, so we'll end up $40 each. That's only $3.33/mo, so it should pay for itself easily.

I agree that Prime is nice, but I don't think I can justify the cost personally. Before I had it, I would have to worry about getting each order up to $25, but I usually had a backlog of things that I wanted, so that wasn't too hard. And while 2-day shipping is nice (and I even paid for the overnight once just for kicks) for most things I don't really mind waiting for the supersaver shipping.

Someone mentioned in another thread that Amazon should have a cheaper option that just gives you free supersaver shipping (or maybe normal shipping, as opposed to 2-day) without having to have a minimum order amount. That doesn't sound like a bad idea to me.

The 360 emulates original Xbox games, which means that the programmers have to code the emulation software for each game individually. They have not yet done that for this game... you can view a list of games that currently work on the Xbox 360 homepage.

Emailed yesterday & just got this response:

The discounts we offer for items on our web site do vary from time to
time. I've checked your order, and found that we now offer a greater
discount on Unreal Championship 2 than at the time you placed your order.

Since this item was shipped so recently, I have requested a refund of
$3.00 to your credit card. This amount reflects the difference
between the price you were charged and the discounted price. The
refund should be processed in the next few days and will appear as a
credit on your next billing statement.

You may view returns and refunds by clicking the "Your Account" link
at the top of our web site, then clicking "Go!" next to "open and
recently shipped orders." Completed refunds will appear at the
bottom of an individual order's summary page.

I hope this solution is satisfactory. Thank you for shopping at
Amazon.com--we hope you will visit us again soon.


So thanks a lot - $3 saved is $3 earned. ;)

It's a shame that UC2's online community died out. I was one of the regulars that owned melee whores left and right when people still played the game, but since this game was built in the vein of a PC game (Read: Unlike Halo 2), nobody played it.

I have no luck with Amazon. First I jumped early on this deal and got it at the higher price, then I wait a few hours on Haunting Ground to read some reviews, and it goes back up in price!

Hopefully they will give me the $3 refund :)

I've never had problems getting something adjusted. I've actually gotten pretty large adjustments in the past on a cell phone and LCD TV. You just have to keep on whether the price changes. There's actually a site that will track these things for you, but I don't recall what it's called.

Isn't this the same one Kmart has on clearance for $4? If so, I saw about a half dozen copies at my local Kmart last night.

If not, then please ignore this post.

Thanks for the find. Been looking, with no luck, for multiple copies of this game since it hit the backwards compatible list. A steal at that price even with shipping considering you would be lucky to find an used scratched up copy at EB for less.

I have one copy now and the game runs smooth. Its widescreen and looks every bit as good as Halo 2 - which I would consider the best looking bc game to date. Best of all this game is a blast to play.

Now I can get all my friends in on the fun and it will be nice break from the clancy's and war shooters we usually end up playing on the weekends.

I picked this game up last week at EB for $5.99 brand new. Its totaly backwards compatible and there are people playing it on live right now.
Gameplay is great, graphics are pretty good too.
