I have so many games that a friend of mine borrows some and takes them to college for months at a time. He borrowed this one yesterday and I think I'll actually miss it. I'll have to tell him about this deal before he goes back to school. The new price tag should be easy on him and it'll help me get my copy back.

This is just my luck. My car broke down and now I can't make it to Best Buy or Circuit City

Do any of you know how to take advantage of the offer any other way?

I want to use my Best Buy Gamers Card so I can save some money.

I thought $20 was the new price point? So it should still be that price later on, when your car is up and running...

Strange reasons for deciding which system to purchase a multiplatform title on, but to each his own I guess. I don't think either has officially stated backward compatibility yet, wouldn't it be interesting if PS3 wasn't backward compatible either, everyone just assumes it will be.

i thought the ps2/gc versions had been cheaper before... hence my, "finally" comment earlier.

those $5 off coupons have ruined my game purchasing... just b/c i want to use one, i hesitate to buy the game online.

Why if you are already keeping it for the exclusives? Sometimes you really don't make much sense.

I contend that backwards compatibility means little.

Once I get my Xbox2/Ps3/whatever I'll probably play very little on my Xbox/PS2/GCN.

And if I want to play older games, I'll just put them in my older systems.

It's not like I'll need to sell my Xbox for $25 (possible price used my the time Xbox2 comes out) just to afford the Xbox2.

This game simply rules. One of the best sleeper hits to come out in a while.

Does anybody know if one version is supposed to be superior? I'm leaning towards the Gamecube, but only if there aren't any significant differences among platforms.

Been waiting for this since it was released. Great buy for $14.99 w/ coupon. I would not hesitate because BB may not restock this title.
