Just picked up my KoA and while I was in the store I seen a tag for SFxT SE on 360 for $34.99. I picked up the last two, marked as clearance. Didn't require a override, rang up at price. Also the coupon does NOT work with it!!!! Only the Xbox version, ps3 rang up at retail!

isn't it a 30 dollar coupon? I wouldn't support buying that garbage game but at 5 bucks i guess its worth it.. seriously what were they thinking locking characters out that were already done. I really hate what Capcom has become.

Im curious why it wont work? what reason did they give. It shouldn't matter if a game is on sale or not, at least it never did in the past. You just cant use it with any other coupons

I just got home from my BBY as well. I checked with a guy I know who is the gaming manager there and he checked to see if the @Gamer coupon worked on the SE but he checked it in the POS system and it would only apply to the standard version. FWIW, he said that most of the @Gamer coupons have been that way.

Kenshindono - I believe it's a $20 off coupon.

Wonder why the X360 is so cheap on Amazon. Maybe not as popular out of the few fans?

Fighting games always sell more on ps3 so there is probibly a much bigger stock of it for the 360

As for the coupon why would the scv coupon work on the special edition but not this ? Is it because this price isn't chain wide ?

in BB now looking at the PS3 version still @ $70 gonna buy now & hold on too it for 59 days see if I can get a pm in the future, if not will return/rebuy for $70 again then wait another 59 days but doubt it'll come to that if they're already clearanced out.

Not true. The coupon for Soul Calibur V worked for the collectors edition and no override was necessary.

I know this because I was going to buy the standard edition using the Gaming Coupon but they were out of them. The employee said I should buy the Collector's but I told him the coupons have never worked on the collector's editions. He said that he tried it earlier for someone else and they did... and when we went through with the transaction it did apply properly.

FF XIII-2 coupon also worked on CE. Weird that SFxT isn't taking.

True. I wasn't talking about Soul Claibur, I was talking about SFxT. I was just in BBY this afternoon and tried to use the coupon on the SCxT SE and it didn't work. I'm sure some stores will do an override on it but YMMV on that; the default on the POS is that the coupon doesn't work for SFxT SE.

Is it possible that bestbuy changed it so that these coupons won't work on special editions anymore ?

Yea Mega Man (old school MM 1 NES artwork version,) Cole from Infamous, Poro & Toro (Japanese cat characters Namco & Sony use to promote products) are exclusive to the PS3 version.

No? Well thanks but nevermind.

Needed an override for the voucher. Bummer because it would have been nice and a perfect price for fifteen bucks for this game

More like 5....

Still missing Pac-Man...

That's the reason I returned my copy to Gamefly after I saw I was missing a significant portion of fighters, and no bad box art MM on 360....grumble, grumble.

Well damn. After reading all this I'm kinda glad the coupon didn't work for me today on it. I hope I can snag a vanilla PS3 copy, if the price drops to 29.99 or less on it. I think that's my threshold for this game, $10 or less. :)
