Saw it (X360 only) at my local (Greensboro, NC) Walmart earlier today. Was $40.
Just checked Amazon and I guess it's supposed to come out on the 16th.
Not really a deal, and probably super YMMV, feel free to move or delete this thread as I doubt anyone will care about this.

Neat but I wish you snapped a pic. I get the feeling the game will bomb with reviewers. I may pick it up as part of my buy2g1free welcoming coupon at BBY.

Waiting for a steam sale at $10 or so.

Maybe this will be widespread like Dishonored was. I have to wait until Sunday anyhow, because of the $15 gaming coupon I snagged at K-Mart isn't valid until then.

I don't think I will ever understand this logic. "I admit this isn't really a deal, probably a fluke, and no one will really care, but I'm going to post it."

In any case, maybe I'm confusing Walmart with another retailer, but I feel like I've heard other games that were out on the shelves at WM before street date but simply wouldn't ring up at the register.

I love doom 3 but $30 for it in 2012 is too much. At $15 without the classic doom games i'd buy it day one. I do want to see what that new campaign is like.

Walmart has games in the display case early quite often. Being able to purchase the game early is a whole different story.

Plus without any sort of co-op, it is more like $7 for me.

No online co-op though, unless it's changed.

I'll wait for the price to drop, which is inevitable. I had it pre-ordered through Newegg when they had the $10 off $39.99+ deal, but when I saw that there was no online co-op, I cancelled. :\ I'll just have to wait and see how low it gets in a month or two.

Final Doom?

I know that it was just the first two Dooms, but I sort
of wish that they would have released Final Doom,
then the Doom Collection (Doom 3 BFG has all of the Dooms).

I think console Doom 3 BFG will have online and offline 2-4 player multiplayer for Doom 1, 2, and 3. For the PC, there's no multiplayer for Doom 1 & 2. But for Doom 3 multiplayer is 2-8 players.

However, I don't know if there's co-op in any of the Dooms.

I had this pre-ordered at Newegg, but cancelled after learning that they omitted the co-op found in the Xbox port. Sure, it wasn't the best, but it was still fun to play with friends.

Like some of you guys, I'll wait for a sale.

I will bite when this hits $15. Definitely want to play it especially since they fixed the flashlight issue.

Same but it's like 6 weeks till BF & this will be $20 or less so I'll be waiting. No point in buying non promo'd games at this point in th year buyers remorse will surely hit once much cheaper prices come.

"Not a deal", but I'm excited about this.

I thought it was a very underrated game. Some highly memorable moments and had the "feel" that id just does right. (Controls/vibe/etc.)

Flashlight whiners killed the original release. I didn't see what the fuss was. Surely shooting at stuff in the dark is scarier? I liked the feeling of fumbling between weapon and light - added to the realism.
