Pre order Unreal Championship (XBOX) $29.99

I don't no if this is a misprice or what but FYE has it listed for $29.99, this is the lowest I have seen it.
They have the release date listed as 10/29/02.

Unreal Championship at FYE

Does anyone have experience with FYE.com preorders?

That has to be a pricing error.

I think I ordered a game from them in the past. IIRC, it took a long time to arrive.

But at that price, it might be worth the wait.

I ordered a couple of times from them back when they were www.twec.com. I usually got my games about a week after specialty stores (eb, gamestop) got them, but I didn't mind because I was saving money (they used to have some decent coupons back in the day...).

I'm not too excited about Unreal Championship, but for $30...

I ordered it for a grand total of $34.43 with standard shipping. So I will let you know if they change the price on me. I am not sure if I can wait the month to get this game though.
It is going to be sweet on LIVE

I'm it at $34.75 after tax. Not bad. It was not on my priority list but for some mindless fun why not. OK, I know there is some intellect used in Unreal........HAHAHA

It's definately a misprice cuz FYE always has higher prices for games..

Who would pay $56.99 for a game that costs $49.99 or less at other places?

Anyway, it's a good deal for the misprice though.

I ordered it too for that price. Pretty good deal. By the way, I played this game at E3 and loved it.

I want to order this but I heard that it may be given to beta testers for Xbox live. What to do?

You can always cancel your preorder.

I got on this deal too, THANKS!!!

Hopefully I won't be getting this game free from Xbox later since I'm a beta tester too.

The last Dragons Lair is NOT the new 3D game but rather the interactive DVD. This is the 80's original game. Never played it on the XBOX but I believe it can be had for less than $34 elsewhere. Plus I think you need the DVD playkit. Thats a guess.

The question is, will they honor the $29.99 price? I got in on it but I'm wondering if we will be seeing an email from them shortly.

A subscription to IGN Insider is almost worth it for the comedic value alone.

The Xbox forums have several threads about this 'deal'. I love the "they can't change the price, that's illegal" posts. Of course some people ordered 4 copies so they can sell the extra 3.

Just 4 copies? I ordered a 100,000 so I could sell them all and take the next year off from work to play the one copy I'm going to keep

How is this for experience. I just checked my order and it has disappeared. I just emailed their customer service group. Looks like they are going to try to get out of this one.
