Just noticed at Gamestop that all PS3 and 360 pre-orders of Rayman Origins get a copy of Beyond Good and Evil HD. I searched this site and nothing came up, so I figured I'd tell people about it. Pretty good deal, I'd say!

I guess i am out of the loop. I thought this was a 3ds game. Thanks for posting this. I can't wait now. My kids love the Rayman games.

I thought this was going to be a dlc arcade game myself....already have BG&E HD so I'll wait for a price drop before I pick this up one, the game does look fun though and an extra arcade game is always nice so thanks for posting the deal

I was almost positive this game was coming out with a $50 price tag..not $60.

Ouch. $60 console 2D platformer at retail in November = the definition of "being sent to die".

Yeah, what're they thinking? Just because the press is giving them some positive attention doesn't mean it needs to be a retail piece of software. I also thought this was supposed to be a $10-$15 pice on XBLA, PSN and Steam...

I'd preorder this if I hadn't found a PS2 copy of Beyond Good & Evil and the price were $50 or less.

Can't tell from the actual links or none of the replies here, but is BG&E HD an actual physical copy of the game on a disc or yet another worthless download voucher I'd throw in the garbage?

would highly doubt they are making a physical copy. download off xbox live would be my assumption.

No kidding. It's sad because I love Rayman, but I will just wait for an inevitable price drop. That plus, you know, GameStop.

No, not really just one of the "old guard" so to speak when it comes to video games and I will resist with all my might the push to make everything downloadable. I like physical media, a manual and a nice box/case when I purchase a game. And I actually do throw away all the codes I receive from my Gamestop purchases. Sorry if that rubs you or anyone else the wrong way.

Do you at least use them before you throw them away? I understand your point (I like physical media too, I still buy CDs), but wouldn't it make sense to at least get what you're paying for?

Being an Ubisoft title there is probably no manual anymore anyway. ;)

I know what you mean about wanting the disc. I want a disc whenever possible, but I don't see the point in throwing away codes or "poo-pooing" the idea of getting a free game just because it's digital. The code is only worth $10 anyway, so I'd rather just take a straight $10 or $20 pre-order bonus. But certainly it's better than nothing, and better than the usual "exclusive skin" type code that is usually given out by the likes of Gamespot.

I'm at the point where i can easily accept downloadable media for *SOME* games. Especially old games like Beyond Good + Evil HD, as well as all the arcade titles. If you just dismiss digital downloads entirely then you are missing some of the most fun games this gaming generation IMO.

Nope, never used any of them. It's not like I receive a ton of them or make that my mantra for pre-ordering anywhere, as I mainly pre-order from Gamestop for their physical swag and if one happens to come with the purchase, so be it. Often, I tell the manager he can have it if he wants, but he never takes them, as I'm sure he can get whatever he needs.

I don't think of downloadable stuff as "part of the deal" as I have no intentions of using it from the start, so I guess I don't think of it like I'm not getting what I paid for. Didn't mean to de-rail the deal, but wanted to at least answer your response. Now, good deal for those who don't mind downloading, so thanks for the post OP.

Oh yeah, and I still buy CD's as well!

He doesn't want to read the thread. Are you surprised?

But yes, I'd rather wait for a price drop on this than give GameStop money. I can always buy BG&E HD later, as I too have it for PS2.

Yes they are. I would pay $60 for this game if it was released in July. I mean I would pay anything for a good 2D platformer but not in the hell month of November.

Plus I already own BG&E HD so no need to repurchase it.

Also don't Ubisoft games drop like fucking crazy? Yeah I think I will wait on Rayman even though I really want it.

Are you all forgetting Sonic Generations is coming out in November? That's a platformer.

Right but Sonic Generations has this 2D/3D thing going on. Rayman is a straight up 2D platformer.

I too find the $60 price tag ridiculous, I guess they want the game to do poorly.

It says a code with instructions will be printed on the receipt at the time of pick-up. So it's DLC, not on the disc.
