Someone over at NeoGAF just said that they found Contra 4 at Fry's for $20 even though it was unadvertised in the latest ads. Can anyone confirm this?

Oh, and please lock this if necessary. I hope I'm not spamming here.

Checked the Sunnyvale Frys, didn't have any copies of Contra 4 on the shelves.

Yup I can confirm this. The Fry's at City of Industry, CA has about 2 copies left and they were not in any protective plastic case and have a price label of $19.99.

if the sticker price is $19.99, then that's the regular price (not a sale), right?

This game is awesome.

Awesomely hard.

So awesome I want to throw my DS out the window every time I play it.

Almost as awesomely hard as Contra for the PS2 on expert mode.

That game made me go through many controllers. =)

Nice! I actually would love to pick this up. Reviews, word of mouth and the potential twenty dollar price point all have me enticed.

This was not at Fry's but I finally used the $10 apology coupon code Circuit City sent me back in May. I bought Contra 4 $19.99 plus tax and free shipping.:)

Confirmed at the Roseville Fry's. They still had copies too.

Edit: Be sure to read the instruction manual, it's pretty fucking funny.

three copies in Burbank, I picked up one leaving two more.

They also had Lunar Knights for $24.95, as well as a bunch of DS games I never seen or heard of!!!

All sold out at the Fry's in Plano, TX.
Apparently they have 1 left at the Garland location, 2 at the location off 635, and 4 in Arlington. Still debating if it is worth the trip and risk of it being sold out... Good luck to anyone who gives it a shot

Speaking of Lunar Knights I have a used copy that I'd be willing to trade or ship for $20 if anyone is interested

Just got the last copy in the IL, store. Thanks to the original poster!

Also, to my surprise, they were selling Uncharted for PS3 already.

Bit late, but was at Woodland Hills in the early afternoon and picked up a copy confirmed for $19.99. There were four hidden behind a copy of Crash Racing (I didn't do it!).

Thanks, I'll be sure to check for Crash Racing if I can't find Contra in its proper place tomorrow!

Damn, if only I knew about this sooner I would have gotten in on it. How many CAGs we got who shop at the Industry Frys ?

I'll stop by sometime this week (but not Friday) and see if they have a restock.

Hopefully I can get a Raincheck or somethin'....

I want to thank picktlnt for graciously buying a copy of Contra 4 for me at his local Fry's and expediently mailing it First Class with delivery confirmation. Let me know if there's ever anything I can do for you, picktlnt.

Cheers,
