I found some of these in my local area a few months back for $39.99...found four in one store.

I check back on their website frequently in case more come in stock by chance.

I tried to enter random zip codes for border states and others and was surprised to find quite a few locations showing stock.

If you've been looking for this out of print game, it wouldn't hurt to try your zip.

Here are some random zip codes I tried using Wal-Marts stock finder.
Louisiana 71401 (two location showing in stock)
New Hampshire 03241 (one location showing in stock)
Delaware 19905 (two locations in stock)
Georgia 37407 (one location in stock & 30 miles from Chatanooga)
Tennessee 38302 (one location 30 miles from Jackson)
North Carolina 23505 (one location 40 miles form Norfolk, VA)


I picked 5 zip codes at random just now and three of those showed stock.
I would advise against calling the stores.
EDIT - Still finding more...

This website is nice to look-up zip codes in your area, easier to use than the USPS website.

There are none in my area, I just wanted to give an FYI that they are still to be found in the wild...hopefully your area :)

It's also worth noting that just because it lists your store doesn't exactly mean they have it in stock. There were two by me about 2 months ago but no copies were to be found after scouring them both everywhere I could think to look. I'd ask an employee in a normal store, but hey, it is Wal-Mart.

The articles I read seem to conjure up these images of Capcom executives sitting in a dark room with a cauldron and cackling about how no one will be able to buy this game used.


Do you really think I could start a fast food restaurant called McDonaldz and use the golden arches as my logo and get away with it?

It's probably not worth it. WM's stock locator just means that their computers did not scan one (or more) as having been sold. That one copy could be anywhere. It might be sitting right there on the shelves where it should be or it could have been stolen, it could be sitting under some cat litter, it could have been flushed down a toilet... who knows? WM is a complete mess when it comes to older games.

Yeah, if you do call after finding it online, I would give them the sku# or item number instead of trying to explain this particular version to them.

A while back, I looked up a bunch of Walmarts along I-95 and stopped at 3 or 4 on my way down, trying to find this game. None of them had it. Their stock checker is absolute crap. This is not a deal because none of those stores will actually have the game. Nobody does.

I can't find my receipt, but found an old photo, but I can't quite make out the number of the receipt.

I'm looking for the original picture on my camera so I can zoom in.


That won't do it either because they're going to look it up on the computer too and they'll see the same thing we do.

Unless the employee confirms that he has it in his/her hand, I wouldn't bother.

I know, I'm still kicking myself for when my Bestbuy had a few of these left. I wanted one but didn't have the money at the time.

yeah i hate to poop on the parade, but i have spent many a day trekking to wal-marts in VA, south NJ, and PA after this popped up on the wal-mart store finder. none of them had them in stock. one in fact laughed when they asked what i was digging through the games for once because they said people call all the time asking for the ultimate sith game and they had not seen it for months.

The stock checker is the only reason I was persistent enough to find the game at Walmart, of course I got mine last year (it's been that price for quite a while).

The stores that showed it as in stock with their online inventory checker didn't have them out in the video game aisle.. but after giving one of the employees the UPC he checked on their computer, which revealed that they had 2 in stock. He pulled it out from the back of the store.

If it does list it in stock, make sure to do what I did if you want any luck.. cuz chances are it won't be out in plain sight. It's a bit late to be getting in on this deal though, correct me if I'm wrong but I thought it's been this price for at least a year at walmart?

I see both the PS3 and XBox 360 version about 20 miles from me. Are they actually worth driving to purchase? I've only played the second one and thought it was Meh.

There's a listing for 1 in my area but I doubt it's there. Probably a good 45 minute drive away. I'm tempted, but meh...

I really wish Microsoft/Sony/Lucusarts would reprint Star Wars the Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith edition, or at least put the Hoth DLC on the PSN store/XBL store. I haven't heard/checked if that piece of DLC is yet available for download.

All I see lately are numerous budget priced/$20 versions of the original game. Would be nice to see a Platinum Hits/Greatest Hits version of Star Wars the Force Unleashed that includes the DLC or a voucher to download it since it is a fairly old game.

Calling and asking them won't get anything done. Also asking an employee if they have anymore means jacksquat. I know, I work there part time(second job). They usually say "whats on the shelf is what we have". But at my Walmart there is a huge open bookcase of games that aren't even out on the floor. Talking older games, and newer games. This is in the backroom/warehouse.

Most employees don't want to go looking in the warehouse, most of them are unorganized messes.

Unfortunately, trying to find this edition late in the game is so very YMMV. I can't recall what the difference was between the PS3 and 360 ultimate editions?? Good luck trying to find it.

its all on the PSN. i broke down and bought it once I realized that this item is probably out of reach for me.

if anyone wants to prove me wrong and snag me a copy, I'd make it worth your trouble

There is one 27 miles from me. That's a 3 hour drive in rush hour traffic. No thanks.

Gamestop has it used for $45.

I snagged a copy of this off ebay awhile back for 50, the guy had it for 60 but he had the "or best offer" option on there and accepted it for my offer of 50. For awhile I had buyer's remorse because a Wal-Mart item locator said that a Wal-Mart 30 miles from me had a copy...but with the price of gas and the value of the time spent I probably ended up with a better deal on Ebay. Now that I'm hearing the Wal-marts don't even have the games, I'm glad I skipped that option.

So someone actually has found a new, sealed copy of this lately for under $100? You douchebags and your luck.

I just saw a mint used copy in Gamestop the other day.

The thing is, the basic game was fun, but nothing special. I beat it two years ago and I don't have much urge to go back now for the DLC, especially not for +$40.

Yeah, I just noticed that the Hoth mission is on PSN. I guess a reprint is probably not going to happen.

I liked the steelbook design and the collector's card is a nice addition. Wish generic steelbook cases were sold like generic dvd cases in stores.
