I'd love to obtain KOF13 and the 4CD soundtrack. However, I have a huge backlog of games I've yet to touch. I can't really validate spending $50 on another game during the holiday season. What are the odds that KOFXIII will drop down between $30-40 before the end of December? Amazon has plenty of gaming lightning deals scheduled over the holiday season. I'm hoping for a Fighting Game Flurry deal!
As long as the collectible OST(4CD) collection is still offer, I doubt it. Plus! SNK hasn't really had a hit till now (KOF13), so SNK wants more money :D. They aren't like Koei though, where the prices never, EVER drop, so keep checking after Xmas.
Last night, my temptation got the best of me. I ordered KOF 13 plus the soundtrack from Amazon. $50 for a great fighting game and a 4CD soundtrack is a fair deal. I also picked up Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 for $20 as part of the B1G1 50% off sale. Two recently released games for $70 is a great deal! I can't wait to play King Of Fighters XIII. Here's to hoping for Capcom Vs SNK3 before the current console generation ends.
I didn't care much for Marvel 3. However, for $20, I'll give Ultimate a shot. I was able to get an Amazon Customer Service agent to price match KOF13 to $43.99 today, so I did get a bit of a discount after all. :)
