Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 for the PS3 is now OOP so that is something to get sooner rather than later if you still don't have it. (This includes myself.)

It'll cost $29.95 to get everything needed from PSN before it's all removed tomorrow... a bit less if you have a PS+ account.
Thanks for the heads up man! I loved MvC 2 back in the day so I figure I should jump in on this before I have to look for the old game for $100.

Is there any different graphics wise between the ps3/360? I kinda hate to play fighting games with the 360 pad lol. Tried that previous SF games and couldn't stand it.

The value pack has just about all the alt costumes. The other packs are just alt costumes for a few characters. Just buy the $5 Value pack and be done with it.

Thought this was a decent 360 bundle deal over at Best Buy. For $199 you get 250GB slim console, Halo 4, Darksiders II, Tomb Raider and Batman: Arkham City.

Wait, why isn't Ultimate M vs. C available on the PS3 for digital download (the game, not the add-on content)?

I figured, for $5, why not? It's worth it for the novelty at that price.

I assume if you already have the Jill and Shuma-Gorath DLC from the original game, you don't need to buy them for UMvC3, right?

Also the description of the Value Pack warns that it doesn't contain alt costumes for Jill & Shuma-Gorath, but I can't find anywhere else that does. Maybe they don't have alt costumes?

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

I was going to, but I tend to blow $5 or $10 here or there on stuff like that, but I honestly probably wouldn't use it enough. I do have the DL packs because I own Fate of Two Worlds because I actually just got into it over this recent summer and have been looking to grab UMvC for a while now. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they translate over to UMvC.

I read on CAG that the alternate costumes for Jill and Shuma are included as part of their download for each character, I can't attest to that because I haven't gotten to check yet.

Thanks. Interestingly enough, I finally figured out why the store didn't show me as owning the two DLC characters : Buying the LE gave you a download code for both characters, but they're only available for purchase individually. Like redeeming a Rock Band Track Pack code wouldn't show you owning the included songs in the store, I guess.

There was actually a big stink about it when the Vita version came out, and they had to do something special to get a special item with both characters in your download history so you could get it.

I wonder if it's based off of the amount of your online order that you pick-up in store? I entered my code and got $30 off my purchase. I'll take it!

Is that what everyone else got via email? I never got the email.

I got the same thing in the mail on Saturday. I was going to redeem some time this week but my last two orders I've placed online has the 20% off applied to each new game and it says "Gamers Club unlocked" under the price of each game. So it seems like I already have the membership activated without having to sign up for it?

Only until Feb. You need to pony up the $30 this month to lock in for the next 2 years.

Re: The Video Game Deals Thread

Well the coupon the rest of us got expires at the end of this month, are you sure you aren't mistaking the coupons expiration for the expiration of the benefits should you choose to activate them?

It wouldn't surprise me that Best Buy fucked up the dates on the coupons. When I got my batch of coupons in the e mail for renewal, the coupons said they expired at the end of November (and I got the e mail in December). When I e mailed them, she said they actually expire at the end of January, and not to pay attention to the expiration date on the coupon. Go figure

My coupon had the same date. I didn't waste any time getting over there though in case there was a typo.

Yeah, I would definitely take care of it this month. The deal is a no-brainer so you might as well be safe.

Yeah, the coupon sent by mail says 2/10/2014.

I'm actually thinking on waiting until February, so I can "maximize" its benefits. I'm not interested on buying any new game this month, not sure about January yet.
