Considering that's cheaper than Amazon's price for the standard editions, I guess it's a good deal, since you get the bonuses. Anyway, if you're interested, you can check it out here.

I wonder who they are matching? Or is a mistake...

long departed are the times when Amazon runs their own deals

Wow that coin bank actually looks pretty sweet. Hmmm... Im a sucker for SE's but this game can be had for $20 at GF now and I cant help but feel I should wait for the 3rd or 4th iteration before splurging just so I can have all the damn characters. Hmmm

Thanks for the heads up OP!

I believe the SE includes all the gems as well as some extra costumes which could easily make up the $20 difference on the USED gamefly deal. Will have to pass on this. Wanted this on PS3... thanks anyway OP!

FYI, it does not include extra costumes. Just a ton of gems, a really cool little bank, a different game case cover from the regular version that says Special Edition and has different art and a mini comic done by Udon that serves as a prequel to the events in the game.

Unless you want the extra gems and other stuff it comes with, I would just buy the game for cheap on Gamefly and then wait for the DLC to go on sale if you want any of it. Or if you have the money to spend you could just get the SF 25th anniversary edition box that will come with the game including the DLC and other games, movies, music, etc. as well.

Bought this day 1 for full price. Only played it a few times before going back to AE. No, I'm not salty.

FYI the coin bank is a cheap POS. It's only about 4 inches tall and a pain in the ass to assemble. The "comic book" is just 10-15 pages appended to the back of the instruction booklet. And no you do not get all the gems. There have been a ton more DLC gems released since the SE release.

This will be sub $30 soon enough the way this game is tanking.

Don't buy this game. It's been ruined by shitty game mechanics and slimy marketing schemes.

Yeah you really needed to apply a LOT of pressure to put it together. Almost to the point where it felt like it would break. In the end I like how it looks though, just wish something like that was already snapped together.

Also if anyone does get this game now, you should probably hold off on playing it until this month's patch for the game comes out since they broke several characters in the last patch such as Rolento which can cause the game to freeze up if projectiles collide. All in all I still think it is a fun game and I enjoy the tag team feature of it most of all, but in hindsight I do wish I did wait for a price drop. Ah well

D-pad. Some view PS3 as the more fight-centric console, mainly because of the familiarity with the PS3 controller and that the xbox d-pad sucks for fighting.

I'll go ahead and agree with the hate for the coin bank. It's lame, and it's a bitch to put together.

Game is fun, but heavily flawed. They brought in a new producer and it's more than likely going to be overhauled sometime in the future.

Take that for whatever it's worth. Maybe there's a new version in the works (not likely), or just a massive patch that makes it not so ridiculously gimmicky. Only time will tell.

I doubt this has anything to do with it. Anyone who's serious about fighters is far past Xbox or PS3 controllers. They're both garbage for fighters... get a 3rd party controller or a stick.

I got the SE at launch for $60 and had a blast with the game. This is a pretty good price. But yeah, that bank is tough to snap together.

Wolfkrone plays SF4 AE 2012 and is considered one of the best in the world and plays on a PS2 pad. Masta CJ and Fanatiq are two high level UMVC3 players who use 360 pads. It really boils down to what you're comfortable using as your input device.

I'd also bet that people really into the fighting game scene would prefer PS3 since thats what Japan's scene plays mostly and it ensures the online community will remain active for a long time.

AFAIK Evo tourneys all use PS3s too. Its the official global standard.

Cole, Kuro, and Toro are PS3 exclusive.

Mega Man and Pac Man are on the 360 disc, but locked away. Not sure if they'll be released or not down the line.

Pretty much. I'd like to point out that this game has an input bug with 360 controllers where it sometimes doesn't recognize diagonal inputs. I dunno if it was ever patched but this is HUGE if your using the stock pad.

It really sucks that Capcom finally made their first good fighter in a decade and it's ruined by numerous design flaws and business decisions.

IIRC Evo uses ps3s because it was virtually assured Street fighter, Tekken and any other popular fighter would be on ps3. So they purchased a bunch ps3 consoles,the flip side is that in many cases, (HDR, Marvel 2 &3, SF4) the 360 versions run better.

I dunno what Japan does for console games when they run tourneys but alot of big name players roll with the 360 because it's cheaper (console+game+arcade stick).

I've actually had a smoother online experience on the 360 (with SF games anyway). PS3 may be more popular in Japan, but American players look to play against players from the same region to minimize lag.

360 games as a whole (not just fighting games) tend to drop more than their PS3 counterparts. This is likely because there are more 360 consoles in the wild, hence more copies produced for 360 during the initial run.

Being that the PS3 version of this game has a bunch of extra characters though, I can see why it would be more sought out.

The game is a scam with all the locked items on disc... but for $29.99 after using my Dragon's Dogma $10 off code... might be worth it. :\

In all seriousness though, I really wanted to jump on this (well, not this particular deal, but the gamefly one) but they've released somewhere around 12 new DLC playable characters right? I would be seriously pissed if they DONT release a complete edition. I hope they do soon though. :/
