I know there is already a thread about next weeks sales but for those who missed it Best Buy or didn't see it BB is selling DOA Ultimate Xbox for $30 minus $5 GGC makes it only $24.99.

Sales starts tomorrow. $25 is a steal for this game!

Yeah, it's an okay deal for $25.. it's not too great on Live.. and I'm not sure why "Dream On" plays in the opening FMV...

not bad, but me personally, since I already have DOA 3, I'm going to wait until it drops to $20 someday :)

You're kidding. DoA:U is how online fighting should be done.

I agree. DoA:U is the only Live game I ever play anymore.

Not bad since when this goes GH I think it's not coming in the double box set like it is now :)

:shock: That's a very good price. I'll be sure to pick this up within the next couple days since I'd rather pay $25 now than wait almost a year for it to be $20. Plus...

I think you get the org. DOA game with it. Not for sure what else though.

I've been waiting on this game to drop, and this is a excellent price now.

You get a port of the Sega Saturn version of Dead or Alive 1 (which is also online if that interests you) in its own DVD case, and the remade DOA2 online in its own case too. The two cases are put together in a cardboard sleeve identical to the KOF: Maximum Impact one.

Btw, good deal on the game, but I got it @ Meijer through the B1G1 50% off deal so I kinda got it for the same price.

Would this game appeal to someone who isn't a hardcore fighter fan?

depends i guess, i remeber hearing horrible things about the lag in guilty gear but when i ended up getting it in the b2g1 i only had a few lag problems so i guess it all depends on your connection. might be a rental first

I think the creators have a thing for Aerosmith, their music is in DOA3 too.

I'm considering getting the game myself despite not having the card at Best Buy. I rented the game and although I feel it's good, it's way too much like DOA2, plus I don't have Live anymore. DOA2 was good gameplay for its time, but feels a little dated compared to DOA3. The graphics though are much improved and the newly designed courses are great, but the same old gameplay is intact. I'll think about it more.

it's a remixed and updated version of DOA2, and a port of the original DOA. it isn't meant to be a brand new game, it's an excuse to port DOA and DOA2 to yet another console, but this time with online support thrown in.

i have enough versions of DOA.as tempting as new costumes and a new character might be, i'll still pass on it.

We don't really get discounts at bestbuy, its the price of what bestbuy pays for it and 5 % off that. Some items we don't get any discount at all. Items on sale we usually don't get anything off.

I just picked it up for $25 at BB. DOA 1 and 2 for that price is a good deal. I haven't played the DOA series yet so this should be a good introduction.

Isn't the Xbox version of Dead or Alive, a port from the arcade? I don't think it's a Sega Saturn port?...
