Just marked down Street Fighter X Tekken for $39.96. The price change was downloaded to our Telexons today, so will be YMMV on the Department Manager's side if they did the changes or not.

My store doesn't carry the LE so don't know if that dropped.

This could be a future universal drop, but I checked Amazon and our own website and it hasn't dropped yet.

Edit: If anyone gives you a hard time with the price, just let them know It's in their department 5 price changes. It's a rollback so it may or may not be a permanent price drop. Amazon and Gamestop have yet to take action on 4/4 6:30 Eastern.

MSUHitman - FYI a patch is coming out next week that will fix the online sound issues:

At $40, I may even have no problem paying for the DLC. Just not going to pay the full $60 knowing that there will be a $20 character pack after the Vita version is released.

Walmart uses the most archaic system if they have to manually change the prices. Buncha crocka shit, is what that is.

Can second this. Subbed in for a DM and a couple others dropped to $40 too. Only other one I can remember though is The Darkness 2.

Is this a permanent price drop?

I know you said YMMV but it was dependent on the DM (deathmatch? lol) changing prices. I.e will they change storewide eventually or is it solely a store by store basis?

Waiting for this to hit the 15-20 range so it makes the DLC more affordable. I don't mind dropping $20 on the DLC if the total game ends up being about $40.

Those prices are permanent, but the department manager may be a lazy ass and not do them, as is the case with my department manager.

Just did some research into the DLC characters and Blanka is a DLC character. WTF BLANKA?! The same lovable green guy since SFII is a DLC toon now.

Damn it crapcom

I dread the day I see Ken is offered as a DLC character...

Quick drop for this game. Maybe the DLC drama did cost them a chunk of expected sales...

makes sense. people were filing reports with the BBB against them so they got hit with a ton of negative press, even after they "addressed" the issue.

With the way Capcom has been handling games/dlc, I'd wait for a the complete/arcade edition. This game was decent when I rented it from Redbox a while ago.

So this price drop should pretty much be universal if/when the manager makes the adjustment in the system.

Do not buy this game. A huge chunk of the game is locked away, and the netcode is broken. Seriously go buy MK:Komplete, UmVC3 or KoF13.

Yes. Should be done by late today for sure, otherwise someone is in trouble.

I feel the game is fine outside of sound issues online and that's getting patch on the 10th. I only agree with the game having DLC locked. That's why I bought the game used so Capcom doesn't get a cent from me. But this is still a deal per say since the game is $60 MSRP at most places, and people have Wal-Mart giftcards amongst other things like not having to drive very far to reach any Wal-Mart.

Guys, the netcode is way better than SSF, KOF, and pretty much everything else besides HDR and Marvel 2. It needs tweaking for sure but it doesn't cripple you with insane input lag like most other online fighters.

No sound sounds like a pretty crippling issue (yes I know a patch is coming) :)

I'll wait 6 months and if they don't release a better version then get it. I had a special edition of Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 which meant dick after the ultimate version came out 6 MONTHS LATER.
Capcom has good IP's but they abuse the fan love worse than any other company.
Hate the Ultimate MvC3 thing...but i'll still buy it eventually.
