Well good to hear you're fine with the standard edition of it then.

I was under the impression that there wasn't a second printing. I got the one with the codes as well. Still like six at my Kmart with codes.


Ah, how lucky for you folks. It looks like my area has been swept clean of the first run editions for a while now.

Can someone take a picture of the ad and post it, so I can show it at Best Buy on my phone? Would greatly appritiate it


Don't believe we're allowed to post scans or photographs of ads here on CAG. But if you want to bring it up on your phone, aren't you able to bring up the website page itself?

That should work for you without the physical ad.

Three different codes:
Skull, Male Avatar Armor, Female Avatar Armor


Awesome, thank you. Hope I can grab the skull one soon.


Yes! I am in a signature! :applause:

Wal-Mart gave me a hard time price matching... Had to speak to two associates and a manager. Pulled up their price match policy on my phone then they did it... Argh, stupid employees.

You are allowed to post scans of ads. It's been done before. And Best Buy and other stores prefer the physical ad. They usually don't honor online prices.

Oh great, I'm just now seeing this. So it's too late to get the Sunday Paper so I can get a physical copy of the Ad. Looks like I'm gonna have to take a trip into my local Kmart just so I can get an ad to use for price matching.

As late as I'm seeing this though, I never would have known about it if there wasn't a thread dedicated to it. So thanks OP for creating this thread.

Sometimes they have the ads at the front of the store. Thats what I'm hoping for.

Wait, it's in the Sunday ad? I looked at mine and don't see a thing regarding any game sales. Perhaps the ad differs per state?

That's why they always list the states/cities/etc covered on the back of the flyers. For instance, my local flyers always say RI/MA/CT.

I snagged this from a GameFly sale a while ago. I'd never played the original before, and I couldn't for the life of me understand why it was so special. Maybe if I'd played it 10 years ago, the remake would've been awesome...but as a newcomer, it didn't appeal to me at all.

It's been $19.99 a few times with release bonus still in pack, so I don't know how flippable it will be. But some of you losers love to make 50 cents off games.

And that's not sinbad is it? I thought it was that guy that hosts family feud now. Or richard pryor...


A game sells millions of copies and you are worried about a few people buying it just to flip? The fact you think flippers are losers is more a reflection on you to be honest. You must think anyone who buys something for one price and sells it back for a higher price is a loser then.

I'm kinda surprised you found a copy with the avatar and grunt skull bonus. I haven't seen those in a while. Anybody here know of the avatar bonus and the skull bonus are two different codes?

I'd love to get the birthday party skull. It's hard to play campaign without the added cheers of joy for me.


The Kmart I went to had 7 copies left all with the bonus avatar stuff. No override was needed either. It just rang up at $14.99.

Just got back from Kmart, no bonus avatar copies, and it rang up $30. Had to get them override. No hassle from them though. Told my buddy about it so hopefully I can co op this.

Some douche decided to snag every copy of this at the Kmart in Cranston, RI. The clerk said there were 8, but he didn't know if they were the ones with the DLC or not.

And what does it say about him? Inquiring minds must know.

This is why some of you are needing overrides and others aren't. They have different UPC numbers.

I got the copy with bonus content and needed an override, so I'm pretty sure the reason boils down to Kmart being dumb as hell.

For those keeping score:

Bonus Content-Yes
Override-No
...for me here in Virginia. BTW, the store had plenty of ads up at the front desk for those who need them.
Like myself, since I recycled mine before I saw this thread.

Anyone who concerns themself so much with people that flip games that they go out of their way to call them "losers" is a fairly miserable person. It is the type of person who thinks someone else is always screwing them or they would always get something if is just wasn't for "that person". Flippers are not your problem. I could care less if someone buys a copy of a game to sell someplace else. I am not a fan of buying 8 copies of the game but again it is not enough of a concern for me to think those people are losers. Loser is just a term that miserable people throw around because they are unhappy with themselves.

Yeah, it was the time. The graphics were great then, and the enemies were smarter than most other games. Plus when I first played it nobody knew about the flood yet and it was a major twist in the game and it was a killer one at that. The whole game your fighting the elites and grunts and what have you and then all of the sudden boom, they played it just right.

You can't go back and get it again, you can be nostalgic about it like I am if you played it then but even then some of the luster is gone, but back then I enjoyed the heck out of it and system linked a metric ton with my friends so we could see who was top dog. lol

I think he's unhappy with the people not leaving copies for people who want to play the game rather then himself.

But hey, maybe the assumed flipper was buying copies for his clan.<shrug>
People who still have ECA codes are why we can't have nice things... :shame:

Hmm. If Wal-Mart will price match I wonder if I can get an additional discount through my mother's employee discount? ;)

Called my local and they said $30 and no Bonus. Will probably just PM at Best Buy then.

My BBY didn't have it. If they call the local K and they say $30..

Just picked up a copy at BBY using the paper ad. Neither Kmart nor BBY had the slip cover Bonus edition. Ah well, just happy to get a copy for $15.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but shipping is only .99 on their website.

Thanks OP, did a price match at BBY for this when I was picking up something else. Been waiting on it for awhile now.

I can understand people wanting to keep things in the weekly ads, but I wouldn't have seen this deal otherwise.

Considering through yesterday it was still $30 on their site, I can't imagine many who tried to get the "deal" (especially when it was thought to be an error, perhaps) even knew about this until now.

Went ahead and submitted the price to Amazon for matching. [crosses fingers]

On Sunday, when the sale started, they didn't have the correct price loaded on the website. Instead of taking a chance if they were going to fix it or not, I, along with perhaps others, just decided to head to the store instead. Glad to see they've got the price fixed online and in-store, according to what others have mentioned. Hopefully everyone is getting the extra DLCs, etc.
