    Circuit City has Serious Sam XBox for $19.99 with free shipping (this title is $49.99 everywhere else). Use MSN Wallet when checking out to get $4 back in Holiday dollars. Your net cost is $16. This game was just released for XBox Nov. 14, and has gotten some pretty solid reviews.

    Thanks, Bill. This game sounds like good simple fun, but not worth paying 50 bones for. At this price, its a sweet-sounding deal!
    Good one![​IMG]

    I stopped by the neighborhood CC over lunch and picked up a copy of Serious Sam XBox for $19.99 in the store (no $4 MSN rebate, but it'll be fun to play this over the weekend). The game is clearly marked $49.99 on the package but, sure enough, it rang up at $19.99. (The sales clerk all but ran back to the shelf to grab his copy.) I figure it's either a secret sale, or this game really sucks and they have a million copies to dump. Based on the screenshots on the package, it actually looks like a great game.

    Lemme tell ya.....Seious Sam on the PC is an absolute blast! Non stop carnage...going a million miles an hour. I don't know how well the xbox version is but on PC I challenge you to find a better game for the money.

    I picked it up today as well. I'm interested in the link play co-op. I'm hoping to try it out on XBconnect soon. I'll let you know what I think.

    I picked up 2 today, 1 for me and the other I took over to FYE. They gave me $50 credit, so i got Splinter Cell as well. Not bad, for $40 spent and a little legwork.

    Has anyone that's played this run into issues where the game freezes for a second and then starts back up again. It seems to happen in areas where enemies are spawning onto the screen.

    I'm just curious as to if I have a bad copy.

    Thanks,

    Glen

    My local CC was out of stock but BB price matched it after a little convincing!

    Can't wait to open the Xbox on Christmas morning.

    Q- do you need a special optical cable for the HD pack or will any do?

    Amazon.com just dropped the price to $19.99, too. Not as good as CC's deal with MSN Holiday Dollars, but if you can pair it up with another item, you can still get free, sloooooooooow shipping at Amazon.
