Feel like this game will sell well on PC, but console gamers won't be buying.

Will wait and see how the game plays with controller and then pick up when its 29.99 in a few weeks


that is why i preordered the ps3 version, i think the console versions will go down in price quickly. "strategy" and "console gaming" just dont go well together. hoping for a price match in the $45 range (come on TRU). already put the $15 giftcard to good use with the max payne $20 DOTD.

Did anyone get the Preorder bonus for the PS3 version? I didn't get it when I picked the game up and I haven't received any emails about it after about 6 hours.

That's what I've been hearing, but it's not within my game. I guess I'm going to contact Best Buy support, but I'm not really sure how to plead my case.

My Xbox version has a sticker indicating that. I haven't opened it to confirm.

i just opened my ps3 version, and confirmed the code is on a online pass code paper inside the game, n the youtube video i just watched confirmed xbox 360 version has the code on a paper inside.

Did the Ps3 version have a sticker on the outside indicating that?

Because I also got one that had nothing inside and Im pretty peeved about it...

Gonna go exchange it for one that does

I figured they would have them. I didn't see any XCOM copies on the floor. Luckily mine was sitting in the cage at CS.

Yeah I dont know what the deal was with my Best Buy, they must have ordered their shipment late or something because both the ps3 and xbox versions had no sticker and no DLC packed inside and only a few copies for each system...

The other Best Buy had about 5 copies for each system and all of them had the sticker and DLC...

Really wierd considering 2k said all of the first shipments would have the DLC packaged inside...

Moral of the story is be on the lookout for a small sticker on the front indicating the Elite Soldier Pack DLC inside, It should be next to a 9.5 GI gold review sticker

It's a good game. Even has multiplayer which I hadn't seen mentioned anywhere.

Guys this game is amazing. You should all get this game. If you missed out on this deal, check out TRU next week: 50 gc with 2 $60 games. Get this game anyway you can. It controls like a dream with a controller.
