Just picked this up at EB today. I love Guilty Gear and for $20, why not? I'm not sure if it's $20 everywhere.

Yeah not really a deal per say as its MSRP $20. Still sounds like winner though. Personally I'm waiting for Best Buy to get it in so I can get it for $15.

You can pick it up today. I didn't preorder and neither did my friend, and we both picked it up.

My Best Buy said they aren't getting this game in. I couldn't find it on their web site, either. Sounds like this isn't going to be a huge release, so you might want to call your BB and ask.

I figure I'll just pick it up at EB later today. $15 would be nice, but I'll settle for $20.

One of the BB reps I spoke with about it said they're not getting it in.

I heard the same thing from a CC rep.

I ordered it from Gamestop, should show up by the end of the week. Well worth it, from what I've seen.

I think I'll buy it. First because it's an awesome price and second it's been getting great reviews.

Anyone seen the XBox version and see how it compares to the PS2 version?

From what I've read, besides the Live play, they've tweaked the graphics a little. I'm curious to see if anyone has seen both and can offer a comparison.

If you're asking how Guilty Gear X2 compares to Reload basically the moves have been tweaked to balance the characters. It's like Virtua Fighter 4: Evolution, same game, just a few tweaks and changes here and there.

I don't think you can say it's to the level of a VF4 EVO make. If you already own GGX2, then Reload isn't worth it, IMO. Nothing's really changed outside of the extra fighters and tweaks. Sure, things are a bit more balanced, but the game is virtually identical in terms of everything else. EVO was, IMO, a real remake -- graphical augmentation, quest mode, and thousands of added goodies -- you aren't going to find any of that in Reload.

All the EBs near me are sold out. Guess it can't hurt to wait a few days more. :(

has anybody seen this game at BB? You can use the $5 off madden coupon or either use gamer gift card thing to make it 15

Truly, it isn't as big a change as EVO was. But to be fair, you failed to mention that GGX2#reload is ONLINE. That will be a huge plus to some people.

My local best buy confirmed that they are not going to carry it.

Your Winner!

It retails at 20 bucks. GameStop in my area says they only got 3 in. No where else had it either. I like the original Guilty Gear more. Xbox controll isn't good for fighting games.

My BB said they'd have it tomorrow, but they've lied to me before.

I bought my copy a few hours ago, though I don't know when I'll play it. Fable is pretty distracting at the moment.

FYI, some Gamerush stores are also carrying this. I checked 5 stores in my area though and only 1 had it, so it I'm not sure if all of them will be getting copies. Got mine for free after trading in a couple of crappy games.

I might have to pick this up. Looks pretty interesting. Plus, I don't have any good fighters.

I'm guessing Guilty Gear X2 #Reload is going to be hard to find, if stores like Best Buy and Circuit City won't carry the game...:(

I'm going to BB, tomorrow in the morning. I pray they have the game in-stock...[-o<

Well this is for the Xbox version of the game right? I'm going to check some BBs and CCs around me to see if they have it, and if they don't on to EB or Gamestop? I'm guessing it will be kind of hard to find in the future and I love 2d fighters, so then it'll be a must for me. I too pray that some store around me will have this in stock. Does anyone know if Gamecrazy is getting it in??

It doesn't make any sense why this would be a hard title to find, although it obviously is at the moment. When a new game comes out priced at $19.99 like this, it usually means it's priced that way so many copies can be sold (i.e. Colin Mcrae 4, Midway Arcade Treasures, ESPN 2k5 series). You'd figure they'd press hundreds of thousands of GG X2's so they'd be easily available to the masses when it's this cheap.

My GameRush had atleast one but I didn't check for any other copies. That would be pretty cool if the game became rare after I got my copy. I would be so happy. :P

I've been playing this all day. Fable can wait. Oh, and check your local Wal-Mart. Mine had tons of copies today. (Normal, IL)
