Wow, is Amazon actually doing their own, unique sale price on a game, as opposed to just price-matching everyone else's sales, or did I just miss it being $20 somewhere else?

I wish Best Buy would follow suit already

They had it at ~$23 last week. Knocking $3 doesnt seem like its too far out there

I don't think this game is worth it even at $20.

If you really like street fighter AE is a much better game.

Sweet - it's like you're paying full price for the still-locked DLC and getting the main game for free!

It's not, and it sold out within a day.

I was actually going to get the PS3 ver for "Bad 80's Cover Mega Man" just to have a goofy fighter, but it was gone before I could pull the trigger. I bet Amazon is clearing them out before DoA 5 and Tekken Tag 2 come out... maybe other retailers will follow suit.

STxT is a good game. I enjoy SF fighters though as well as MK and Blazblue. SSF:AE is also amazing. I really like what Capcom is doing with the Vita version of SFxT which is why I continue to support the PS3 version. Cross-play and cross-buy DLC is win. I'll get all the DLC on PS3 for "free" when I pick up the Vita version of SFxT.

Solid game. Worth it just to see the job Capcom did turning the Namco characters into 2D. While there are some legitimate issues with the game from a pure fighting/balance/design perspective, most of the negativity is because of the DLC cry baby losers. At $20, a good deal IMO.

I refuse to pay full retail for a fighter especially how funky the pricing on that genre is. One day it's $59.99 next it's $19.99 than they go and release a super duper excellent superb flaubert edition at another $59.99.

considering that you get almost half game with all those locked dlc i wait until it cost 10 or less

Could you be less informed?

Most fighters don't get an super duper additional version and the ones that do are pretty uncommon. For instance Blazblue went from CT to CS in a year and then it took 2 years to hit CSE. Additionally even if they do make an updated version, they're almost ALWAYS 39.99. This is a lot more reasonable than the typical MSRP you claim.


@ DLC people

I have the DLC and with the exception of Bryan, it's hardly worth the money. Sure it's annoying, but the standard characters are more interesting than the DLC ones.

so admiralvic is one of 7 people who has platted lost planet 2. and one of 4 people with 100% on spelunker hd. respect him even more


guys, you are talking to admiralvic about trophy acquisition, he is the exception.

I dunno, Lars is pretty damned good and Dudley is a beast. You don't wanna Fuck with Cody's frame trap pressure either and Jack-X loves to dish out a shit ton of damage. Nobody on CAG will ever agree they're worth $20, but hey, they are pretty legit characters either way.

Couldn't agree more the dlc characters are a excellent addition to the game. Its a fun game and lots of people are always online. $20 is a good price.

Youll more than likely get a chipped disc if you order from gamefly though as that's what happened to my twisted metal. So if someone doesn't like the game they get and wanted to trade it or sell it in the future, you wouldn't be able to


mine was in mint condition, minus one very very tiny chip...you couldnt even see it unless you got up close and went around the edge

very happy with it :bouncy:

The game is $39.99. With this price, you get the game with the DLC for the $39.99. Not bad.

I hope so, still $20 is tempting but I'm not in a hurry to pick this one up. I can wait for $10 or the complete edition whichever comes first.

Wait, was this a sale? This was not highlighted, the 20 off coupons from @gamer would have made this 3 dollars.

Those are two separate thoughts in the post you're quoting. The first says that they wish that Best Buy would put the game on sale (a sentiment I share), and the second was a response to another post saying that Amazon had put this game on sale (without matching someone else's sale) recently.

The price at Best Buy over the last two months has never been cheaper than $40.
