Mercenaries 2: World In Flames for 360 or PS3 $20 ONE DAY ONLY @ Best Buy 11/14

Just saw in other forum the Mercenaries 2 is going to be $40 at BB next week. If you are signed up for the gaming zone e mail through best buy then you should have received a coupon in your e mail today for a $20 coupon good for this game thorough 12/14. So make sure you go that day if you want it for $20.

I hope those dates you posted are 12/14.

Otherwise, this deal doesn't make much sense.

Anybody have any hands-on impressions of this one? I'll pick it up for $20 if it's not as buggy and annoying as some of the reviews suggest...

I see you are stacking the coupon with the sale price of $39.99 for the week of 12/14. Good luck but it might be a YMMV situation depending on the cashier.

"No, I'm sorry you can't use this coupon on sale-priced items"

I wonder if you could just buy it now and go back next week for a PM + 10%.

It worked for most people the last time a sale like this coincided with a Gamers' Reward Coupon. I don't remember what the game was at the moment, but success seemed to abound.

I think it's fun. Yeah, it's a little buggy and quite repetitive. Still blowing shit up never gets old and this game has that in spades. It's not nearly worth $60, but at $20, it's a no-brainer. You'll have fun.

Try renting it at your local library. I have the PS3 version rented at home right now.

Picked up a copy today. Of course with Best buy, They tax the before coupon price instead of after coupon price. Hey, it still was a good deal.

Supposedly there is a bunch of free DLC hitting the marketplace this week for it as well, including the Obama and Palin skins.

*EDIT*

Here it is so you can queue it up on your box:

Mercenaries
Blow It Up Again Pack (377MB)

It has a lot more than a few minor bugs. Go check out the GameFaq forum on it, there's a running list.

I still bought it for 20 bucks though. Blowing shit up is pretty fun.

and that's what all the reviewers and podcasters always come back to. Despite the many flaws, it is fun as hell.

Personally Mercenaries 1 came out too late in the Xbox cycle(according to Amazon 6 mos. after the 360 launced), so I missed out so I wanted to at least give this one a shot.
