It looks like Gamestop has new copies of Yakuza 3 for $19.99 and the used price for $32.99. After taxes and shipping (cheapest shipping option is $2.99 that is 5-10 business days) the total was under $25.

Currently, I don't believe there are any universal codes that will help bring down the price unless you spend over $25 on the order and use the code "SAVER" to get free shipping on it.

Looks like it is also $19.99 in store also. Thanks to xlaxparkax and shurija for confirming.

--edit 4--
Even though the DLC that comes with the game says it expires 04-01-2011, it can still be redeemed. Confirmed by hbluft and scum1, thanks guys

I am certainly glad this is not some early April Fools schtick. Thanks OP, in for one.

Does SAVER still work? I thought we were supposed to use VSHIP from now on?

Already own it, but dang, if Yakuza 3 is going to drop this low, I think I'll hold off for Yakuza 4 to get to it at this price around the same time next year.

WARNING: The DLC code expires soon

"Soon" meaning "today" - the voucher states that it expires on April 1st, 2011 (whether that means March 31st or April 1st is the last day to redeem it isn't really clear, so don't ask me). Just wanted to give anyone buying the game a heads up.

^Yup, used mine yesterday just in case. This is a great deal for those who missed out on Kmart's deal, especially if the local Gamestop's are honoring the online store's price.

Currently unavailable online and I don't want to give them my credit card info so they can hold a copy for me in store.

I can also confirm Yakuza 3 is $19.99 new in store. Picked one up at the Arboretum store in Austin, TX. I just successfully redeemed the DLC code at 1:30 AM on 4/2, even though it expired on 4/1.

Found it at a local gamestop today, and luckily the code still worked. It might actually take me a year to finally get to this game so I suppose Yakuza 4 can wait or till it drops to around $30.

damn, I just opened the Y3 I got a TrU a while back to redeem the DLC and there's no DLC code in it!! I thought only Best Buy had issues with copies not having the DLC...

sigh.

Confirming that the DLC code still works as of now, cracked open my Kmart copy real quick when i heard about that April 1 Expiration.

I just got mine through Goozex the other day. I read this and went to try my code. It still worked and I downloaded "Yakuza 3 battle pack"

"Soon" meaning "today" - the voucher states that it expires on April 1st, 2011 (whether that means March 31st or April 1st is the last day to redeem it isn't really clear, so don't ask me). Just wanted to give anyone buying the game a heads up.

I went to K-Mart and bought the game on Apr. 1st because of the DLC expiring. I'm not surprised that the dlc didn't expire though. There was another PS3 game that had expiring DLC but never did. I can't remember what the game was though.

Thanks for the info, I hate dealing with Gamestop's idea of "new". Picked one up from them instead. 8-)

Brutal Legend, maybe? It had a code to get some songs for Rock Band, but when it had hit the $20 price point and the codes expired, the codes still worked.
