Best deal I have seen so far. Does this come with any extras? Played the demo the other days. Super excited for Reckoning!

I want this for 360 as well, but I played the demo and I really liked it. $30 is my price point, but if I could get it for $45 on release I probably would.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

Nice deal. Usually the TrU $45 games arent that good but I think this one has a decent chance of getting pretty good reviews.

The 360 version was in the TRU Pre-Order wiki thread, but here's the link:

Anyone that's on the fence because of the extremely buggy demo, most of those problems are fixed in the final build. IIRC, the demo is a three month old build.

There were bugs in the demo?? I didn't encounter any, odd.

EDIT: I still can't pull the trigger. Maybe if Amazon matches...

I'm tempted to get the 360 version, but I think I'll hold off.

I have a feeling this will drop in price quickly. Pretty tempting to bite, especially when combined with the Google Offers coupon.

I think a fairly quick price drop will happen. With Final Fantasy XIII-2, Reckoning, Mass Effect 3, and Tales of Graces F all hitting in a 2-month period, I figure at least a couple of these will be $30 by June, and most CAGs (myself included) seem to have an adequate backlog of games to play through in the meantime.

You can preorder in store, correct? If so do you pay the full amount or is $5 down fine?

I'm not infested in this game really, it just looks like fable with a slightly different art style. But all those people bitching about how we need new IP's better put their money where their mouth is and buy this at launch.

you make a topic on this deal saying you'd like it for the 360. Then after someone says it's for both ps3 and 360 you say you have no interest in the game. Lol .

Ya I wasn't saying I need it for 360. I just know a lot of other CAGs want it on 360

People can be so misleading. The Demo for ps3 had lots of bugs. Once you make it far enough the music and sound completely cuts out for 2-3 minutes at a time, characters dialog is missing, the ground completely disappeared on me. Other than that the game is amazing and really fun, the full release will fix all this I'm sure. As far as someone saying this is like dragon age, it is nothing like that game aside from there being quests and items. The combat is MUCH better, and totally different than DA. It's more of a much deeper and better version of Fable.

Not bad, I already have a pre-order set up with Newegg when they discounted it to 47.99. I'll stick with Newegg since I think it'll ship sooner than TRU.

the equipment settings are identical, as is the item wheel, and button layout. The visuals are also pretty much the same. It also has a very similar leveling system. And yes the quests layout is also the same. There's also looting corpses, breaking objects, and mining items from plants just like Dragon Age 2. I agree the combat is much better, but even then I find the combat more like Dragon Age 2 then Fable 2 or 3

Is there a precedent for Amazon matching these preorder deals? And is this usually a limited time thing like at Newegg? Or could I potentially wait till the week of release and still get the cheaper price? I'm pretty tempted to go for this and SSX, but it would be off putting if they take the money out now (as was mentioned above). Even if it is set aside, it means I can't use it..

I can see the comparison with Dragon Age, but honestly it felt more like Fable to me. A MUCH better Fable. I played Dragon Age Origins and 2 as well Fable 2 and 3 (and beat all 4 of them). I do admit the skill tree is more like Dragon Age, but the art style and world really remind me of Fable. What really hooked me in the demo was the great gameplay and plethora of quests.
