Some CAG must have snagged the last VLR for instore between the time I left and the 10 minutes it took for me to get to the Roseville, CA store.

Guy working there said he had just snagged it off the shelf. Should have done the instore pickup myself but it's always a pain at Fry's and since the website said it was in stock, I assumed they had more than 1.

Absolutely not. Those games are actually playable. I don't know why so many people hate on SVC Chaos. I guess because people were expecting it to play like SF when it was MADE BY SNK.


People hate on it because it was just a poor title. It wasn't unplayable, but it was just wholly unimpressive. CvS2 was excellent, and by comparison it was just a downgrade in every way. It was great that it had Demitri in it, though. That was pretty awesome.

Picked up a copy of VLR and Dungeon Hunter at the Duluth, GA store. Looked like most of the titles were still in stock, except for VLR.

I ordered mine for in-store pick up around noon. Hopefully it wasn't mine that took away from yours. sorry!

I do have to agree that CVS2 was excellent, one of my favorite fighters. But it wasn't really made to be a comparison to CVS, but to be a compliment since SNK made it to play like their games. Completely different feel.

I really hope the Tekken vs Street Fighters follows that idea since SFxT was such garbage.

The site still says the store by me has them in stock... what the hell? I'd say call the store first, peeps.

I just hope it's different. I don't want Tekken Tag 2 with SF characters in it. I used to love Tekken when I was younger, and I still enjoy it now to an extent, but it hasn't made any legitimate innovations since Tekken 6. Even then, the bound system isn't exactly revolutionary.

I'm more excited at the possibility of there being a SSFIV 2013.

Online stock checker refreshes at different times. Usually once daily.

Well, if it was around noon you got it way before I went down there (2PM) But at that time it still showed as available on the website so who knows, they may just have an F'd up stock checker. I'll make sure to use instore pick up myself next time...lesson learned.

Whoever missed on on VLR is lucky now since Amazon has the copy with the watch back in-stock: http://www.amazon.co...ils_o00_s00_i00 those things sell for a good $60-80 on eBay.

For those of you who live near a Frys and can't find your the games you want in stock don't forget that you can always get a raincheck.

No VLR or NGS+ at the Las Vegas Fry's, checked around 4:30PM. Asked a dude that worked there, didn't say there were any. Sadness!

I was just at the Wilsonville OR. Fry's an hour ago, and there was 1 copy of Virtues Last Reward left.
I would have picked it up myself, but I already have my Plat!
Great game! Go get it!

Scored SF x Tekken at BB. New guy at register.

There's maybe 3 of those games I want, and only 1 is available at this point at any Fry's near me. I'll look into this raincheck thing. Bummed I didn't check CAG all day.

here in SoCal and not a single VLR copy at any of the frys within 50 miles :(

can anyone confirm that you can get a raincheck for the $20 VLR? seems like a super rare print and i doubt frys will restock within 30 days (the raincheck typically is good for 30 days)

if anyone can answer, much obliged

I was told from an employee looking through the system that the item was being "discontinued" at Frys, and that a raincheck couldn't have been issued for any of the items I mentioned anyways, seeing as how the price appeared to be the "new price", and none were actually on "sale". Which leads me to my next question... Why would Frys be clearancing out the vita games so early in the game???

Picked up Lumines and Rayman. Thought about SFxT, but I still feel burned after buying the console SE at launch. Easily the biggest disappointment of the year for me. I'm doubting the Vita version even gets the 2013 patch for it at this point.

Gonna get Lumines and Rayman. It'll be about 30 miles round trip to go pick it up at Frys but worth it IMO.

Hmm, that sucks. VLR was in stock at all of the stores near me yesterday but showing unavailable at all of them today. That can't be right unless there are some crafty employees taking advantage of these sales.

In case some of you didn't see the other thread, Fry's still have Persona 4 Arena for $19.99. I price matched at Best Buy this morning! :)

That's the only stipulation when they don't give you a raincheck but that's weird, especially with two newly released titles allegedly being put on clearance so soon. I remember reading an article about Frys owing money to vendors and how the whole "DIY" thing is not as popular as it used to be and may be in financial woes but I didn't really buy into it, is this a sign?!?!?
