This will sell out too fast. The site will crash for sure.

^ Exactly. Surprising reading this.

It's totally while supplies last.

HooliganComboFTW said on June 3, 2013 at 8:24 p.m.

$10? LOL that site will crash. I'll see if I can nab another copy for a friend if I can.

I'm curious why Gamestop is doing this. Too many Injustice copies?

Hypermarth said on June 3, 2013 at 8:33 p.m.

Was hoping this wouldn't end up on this site lol....

I was like "Well I hate NRS... but Killer Frost is pretty awesome, for 10$ why not..."

Thrashballer said on June 3, 2013 at 8:34 p.m.

I'm hoping I can price match this at any retail store that allows it.

Kurow said on June 3, 2013 at 8:38 p.m.

Those are the prices that I always wanted but it is too late. The generation is over and they are not even worth $50 now...

WHAT A STEAL!

@#6

It won't work. I try years ago at Walmart and Best Buy and they don't price match on online deals.

#9
HyperGadoken said on June 3, 2013 at 9:02 p.m.

Isn't this the 4th or 5th time that the game has gone on sale? I guess it didnt' sell well. Especially with all the publicity it got from the App, the comic book, the battle arena tournament.

#10
jtir123 said on June 3, 2013 at 9:09 p.m.

@10 It doesn't work like that...

#11
StoopidMunky said on June 3, 2013 at 9:46 p.m.

w/e, the more people that have the game regardless of how much it costs, the better chance for DLC and sequels. I def wouldn't mind a sequel like MK vs DC 2, or Mortal Kombat 10, or Injustice 2!!!!!!

#12
SnakeX said on June 3, 2013 at 9:47 p.m.

I fully anticipate Gamestop having a lot of angry customers once their site crashes from too many people rushing to buy the game all at once.

@10

Discounts are not always based solely on sale success/failure.

#17
tktktk43 said on June 3, 2013 at 10:45 p.m.

Never tried the game ever since it was released. Not my cup of tea. But this seems like a good deal. However, I just know it would be 10 bucks wasted on something that I won't play. Hmm...

#18
bagel_bytez said on June 3, 2013 at 10:47 p.m.

Most people would pay $10 to go see a movie for 2 hours. So if you absolutely can't get more than 2 hours of fun out of this game you wasted your money

#19
throughsilence said on June 3, 2013 at 10:59 p.m.

If you don't get it for yourself, at least get it as gifts. It's such a terrific deal (assuming it doesn't sell out in a few minutes.)

#20
HooliganComboFTW said on June 3, 2013 at 11:13 p.m.

#20

Yeah, I really hope they prepared for this and have enough copies to last more then a few min or prepare for big site traffic.

#21
TheDeadTexan said on June 3, 2013 at 11:24 p.m.

@21

It'll last about five minutes. They've done this a few times before and it always lasts about 15 minutes.

The site WILL crash so get on at least an hour before.

$10 is about how much the game is worth considering all the DLC they keep chucking out.

#22
hazelnut1112 said on June 4, 2013 at 12:29 a.m.

Man, I just let about three people know of this. I hope they end up getting it. They all seemed to enjoy the game.

#23
bojack13 said on June 4, 2013 at 1:30 a.m.

Wonder how many copies they have. Probably 15 of each console or some BS like that.

#29

@29 If you're going to troll the game because you think it's ass, maybe you shouldn't even take a free copy.

#30
Whengameswerefun said on June 4, 2013 at 8:09 a.m.

Until people train and get online get super angry because their inputs come out 2 seconds later sorry as a flash player this game is trash for online its not bad offline but online is terrible and the fact you have no idea of your opponents connection makes things worse sucks i rather have bought the game for this deal so i wouldn't be complaining as much.

#31
MannieFresh555 said on June 4, 2013 at 8:32 a.m.

wow I'm really tweaking to get Injustice now. I've been waiting for something like this FOREVER!!! I just wanted it to be $39.99 but this is literally a steal!

#32
BigFleccs said on June 4, 2013 at 8:42 a.m.

I was gonna wait till 19.99 but this will do. If not it will stay there. I don't even like it.

#33
Galletano said on June 4, 2013 at 9:13 a.m.

i missed the sale i believe, but is ok cause i rather download the games. Hopping for a discount at the ps store.

#35
KenSaysCHAR said on June 4, 2013 at 9:29 a.m.

I'm going to deduce that you're EST. The time says 10AM PDT. So that's 1PM EST.

RedRapperSux said on June 4, 2013 at 9:48 a.m.

@37 Injustice is worth a chance at 10 bucks. I don't think anyone can deny that.

#40
HyperCombinationFinish said on June 4, 2013 at 9:50 a.m.

@37 lol why not for 10 bucks?

#41
Daedae22 said on June 4, 2013 at 9:58 a.m.

I don't think anyone's gonna rush to by this terrible game....I'll sell someone mine for 10 bucks lol. Even tho I'd feel bad cuz a friend bought it for me for my bday. It was one of those "thaaaaanks...." forced smile moments. I'd rather he just punched me in the face tbh. Anyway just thought I'd stop in to flame a crap game that's already getting price cuts. Peace out NRS fan boys!

leogeo2 said on June 4, 2013 at 10:05 a.m.

The sale is only for the XB360 version of the game. PS3 owners need not apply. :(

#46
Nyte42 said on June 4, 2013 at 10:05 a.m.

They have the 360 version for $10, but the PS3 version is still full price.

EDIT: My mistake, they updated the PS3 version.

#47
soliloquynights said on June 4, 2013 at 10:07 a.m.

Lame, the price is only for xbox versoin. Ps3 owners get screwed again

Waste of my time. Back to what I was doing as i don't have much to waste.

RedRapperSux said on June 4, 2013 at 10:11 a.m.

@51 I would be mad if I bought it at 60 bucks too.

#55
Darkcloud said on June 4, 2013 at 10:11 a.m.

@51 I already have a 360 copy. I was getting a PS3 copy to play with my cousin since that's what he has it on.

REALLY disappointed by the sale.

edit: Apparently PS3 copy is on sale now.

#56
Nyte42 said on June 4, 2013 at 10:12 a.m.

PS3 price drops down to $10 in your cart, but that section of the site crashed.

#57
OmALY_04 said on June 4, 2013 at 10:13 a.m.

Yeah. It said 60 on the game page but changed to 10 in my cart. Got my PS3 copy.

#58
Cinderkin said on June 4, 2013 at 10:15 a.m.

Got 2 copies for a total of $21.60

Took 15 minutes though as I had 2 copies sitting in my cart before 10am and just went to check out at and the price updated.

#59
Daedae22 said on June 4, 2013 at 10:15 a.m.

Actually it was bought for me and I'm still disappointed in myself for putting it in my system.

#60
MahvelBaby said on June 4, 2013 at 10:16 a.m.

Yeah, the site says full:

I can't even access my cart. Haven't been able to since 11:59. Awesome.

Got my PS3 version, ordering Xbox 360 version for a friend.

#64
IAmMassive said on June 4, 2013 at 10:24 a.m.

Pretty sure the 360 version already sold out too. I had two copies in my cart (on accident, not being greedy. it added both) and was stuck loading the checkout, and now they're gone from my cart and the 360 option isn't on the power hour page.

#65
TCal said on June 4, 2013 at 10:25 a.m.

Damn, the site crashed! 360 ver is gone...

#66
flippertron5k said on June 4, 2013 at 10:27 a.m.

Wack, you can't even check out!

#67
RedRapperSux said on June 4, 2013 at 10:28 a.m.

This deal was a matter of pure luck. Amazon needs to show GameStop how deals are done. That was absolutely pathetic.

#68
ManRightChea said on June 4, 2013 at 10:29 a.m.

Total BS, I actually was one of the first to add the 360 version to my cart, got to chekckout and the entire site crashed, refused to load. By the time I got back to my cart it was empty. **** Gamestop.

#69
xShonuffx said on June 4, 2013 at 10:32 a.m.

Wow, was at the check out, and before I could get to the Credit Card information they snatched it from my basket, that's some Bullllllllll!

They should have did it like Amazon when they have those Black Friday sales, put the advertisement out there and as soon as 12 hits it unlocks. Once its in your basket its there until you give your credit card. Don't take it out of my basket because your servers suck. I hate Gamestop, really.

#70
naterade said on June 4, 2013 at 10:32 a.m.

Can anyone say FAKE SALE to get people to go to gamestop.com??

#71
Cinderkin said on June 4, 2013 at 10:36 a.m.

It wasn't fake I got 2 copies. Also got an email confirmation and they charged my card. 360 version is what I ended up with. I am willing to sell one copy to whoever wants one. $25 if you want it. Still cheaper than normal.

#72
xShonuffx said on June 4, 2013 at 10:36 a.m.

@71 This is one of those rare times I actually wish these guys will dry up and disappear from the gaming industry when the DRM consoles arrive but im just mad now. I don't think I mean it but I do want them to go away. I can see why people love Steam that holiday sale that was in Dec/Jan was the best. Got so many great deals then and you didn't have to worry about it being sold out.

#73
HyperCombinationFinish said on June 4, 2013 at 10:38 a.m.

Awww man. I didn't get it. Now what am I supposed to throw in my new garbage can?!?! Kappa

#74
BigFleccs said on June 4, 2013 at 10:38 a.m.

I suspect this is BS to get me to shop gamestop. I will wait till its in clearance or get it used next year.

#75
Landonio said on June 4, 2013 at 10:39 a.m.

I don't get how people were actually able to get a copy. I already had all of my shipping and credit card info in beforehand AND had the game in my cart. That was ridiculous.

#76
LK said on June 4, 2013 at 10:40 a.m.

@72,

Hello flipper. We don't like your kind here.

#77

@75 Lol wont have to wait that long.

#78
RedRapperSux said on June 4, 2013 at 10:40 a.m.

@72 I don't think you understand the issue though. The game is WORTH 10 bucks. Why do you think everyone tried to hop on it? You want a game for what it is worth.

#79
LK said on June 4, 2013 at 10:41 a.m.

@79

Buy low, sell high, aka, flipper.

I remember when Limited Edition Pikachu 3DS XL launched at Target, one person tried to buy all the units, ignoring all the people waiting in line behind him. The intention is to make money on eBay.

joyoza said on June 4, 2013 at 10:42 a.m.

No big deal. It's not like it was SF V2013/2014. Its just injustice. Ya I would have liked to grab it for 10 bucks and had in it my cart since 11AM.Oh well gamestop removed it. I will not purcahse Sh.t from them anymore. I will stick to the mom and pop shops.

HooliganComboFTW said on June 4, 2013 at 10:45 a.m.

The WRONG WAY to do this was to take a risky gamble on the GameStop Website and PRAY your purchase goes through past the shopping cart before the site crashes/gateway timeouts/ etc because of the insane traffic on their weak servers.

The RIGHT WAY to do this was to drive to your local Best Buy like a half hour before the "Power Hour" started, secure your Injustice copy (one of the RARE moments when that store was useful) and demanded a PRICE MATCH by telling them GameStop was selling Injustice for $10 and to look at their home page (which was working btw, only shopping cart apparently and above was hell). The guy couldn't believe they were selling the game for so low, but they reluctantly gave me a copy for $10 plus tax. Walked away with a copy I'm sending as a gift and I didn't even have to wait for shipping.

#88
LazerGunFunk said on June 4, 2013 at 10:46 a.m.

@76 pretty much exactly what happened to me had everything all ready then the site crashed and emptied my cart for some reason and sent me back to the home page

#89
Cinderkin said on June 4, 2013 at 10:46 a.m.

@77

I didn't even want 2 copies, but I accidentally clicked the add to cart option twice. Because it took so long just to get through the cart the last thing I was going to do was try and go back and edit the order.

I ended up paying for 2 copies of a game I only needed 1 of. If no one here wants it that's fine. I can sell it to someone else.

#90
LK said on June 4, 2013 at 10:48 a.m.

@88

Most people are working at this hour, so they can't readily get to Best Buy and camp the time. But I guess for people who are willing to do the leg work, it's much more reliable than waiting for fecestop to load.

#91
BigFleccs said on June 4, 2013 at 10:48 a.m.

You can't flip if no one wants it. I know I don't/won't pay more than 9.99 for it. It will go on clearance sooner or later. Then I will get it. Oh well I will be getting a wrestling all stars for psn, my son loves wrestling and this may be a better purchase for me.

#92
ManRightChea said on June 4, 2013 at 10:50 a.m.

I actually never do business with Gamestop, I sell all my games that I no longer want on eBay or I give them to cousins. They are a pretty corrupt business fueled by ripoffs. I don't understand why people support them, won't be sad to see them go under when games go full digital and cloud based.

#93
MannieFresh555 said on June 4, 2013 at 10:50 a.m.

I honestly want to get the price down as low as I can. I'm blowed cuz I really wanted Injustice for the longest. I got $90 in store credit so I can just wait again

#94
HooliganComboFTW said on June 4, 2013 at 10:52 a.m.

#91

My condolences to the people who don't have flextime or changed hours with someone else since there was a 24 hour notice. Although I would have been screwed too if I had classes (Since I can't actually "reschedule" a class unlike a job) during that day/time period.

haha at the common excuse for getting two copies being "it was an accident that i got two and you dont have one, but ill sell it to you for more than what i payed for both" seems legit

#97
Torrie_De_Goddess said on June 4, 2013 at 11:02 a.m.

Wtf! I JUST found out about this. :-( Was gonna get it as a gift for cousin.

Probably more than 2.
