    I plan on picking mine up as soon as Best Buy gets them in, but I thought it was strange that no one has started one yet. What gives? Nobody's picking this up [​IMG] ?

    Because the games didn't ship until today, and very few if any stores will have it before tomorrow

    I'll definitely be picking it up but since it's not out yet, there's nothing to talk about. [​IMG]

    Well, those who care might find it interesting that IGN gave it a pretty good review (XBox - 9.2), and declared the XBox version the winner of the "head to head" challenge.

    From IGN's "Closing Comments":
    The simple fact of the matter is, Soul Calibur II is best weapons-based fighter out there, period. It's also one of the best games in the fighting genre itself. There's a diverse selection of characters, a deep fighting system, a decent single-player mode, and the multiplayer is as fun as it ever was.

    Maybe I'm just overly excited about it. I'm picking up the XBox version for myself and the Gamecube version for my son. I'm hoping BB gets them in tommorrow, although I believe the advertisement in the Sunday paper said Thursday.

    I'm picking up my copy (for the PS2) this evening, as soon as I get off work. I'll probably pick up the Gamecube version on Thursday or Friday, depending on which day Circuit City receives their stock.

    It's good to know people that work at videogame stores [​IMG].

    My local store got it in at 8:55pm and I was able to buy it. I got the Xbox version for the graphics/sound, and the GC version for Link [​IMG].

    The Xbox version kicks ass. OK, so they screwed up the 720p by putting it in 4x3 mode, but the graphics are light years ahead of the PS2 version. The sound is amazing.

    I'm floored by the content in this game and I've only played it for 2 hours (complete with a blister on my left thumb). My wife and I have been having fun playing since we haven't played a game like this together in 4 years since we last played SC1.

    I picked it up earlier this evening, around 5p.m through EB.

    I have the X-Box version and I have a slight problem. Turning on the game it showed various lines with a no picture just white lines. Sound was good. My current video settings on the Xbox is that all 3 modes are enabled, then I got the game to work by turning the 720 and 1080 modes off, leaving the other mode on. The game worked fine. I do have a HDTV Widescreen T.V.

    This isn't the only game this has happened to me, It also occurred with ESPN's MLB Game.

    So far so good, the game is incredible, I just hope I can resolve the resoultion problem

    Doug: For some reason (processing power?), Soul Calibur 2, and perhaps other HD XBox games, will only display 4:3 for 720p. It was like that on the JPN version too.

    Those wankers at Gamestop are telling me its "Backordered"! WTF? I pre-ordered, numbnuts. If they ship it without the free artbook, I'm gonna go all Voldo on their asses.

    I should be picking my copy up in about 3.5 hours... I'm just getting the xbox version.

    Everything I've read says Link is so sickly overpowered most people ban him from versius play... [​IMG]
