Okay, I've been having problems with Mercenaries crashing.  I was wondering if anyone else has been having similar problems, or if it might just be that the disk I have is a bit scratched up.

Well, I have a problem with a 3-4 year old game still costing 18$ used, so I didn't get it yesterday. What a racket frown Hope you figure it out dood.

Yeah.  I cleaned the disk off a bit.  Hopefully it will help.  I also have a problem where in some areas the minimap goes solid blue and is as a result not much help. 

It only cost me 11 bucks.  I figure I'll get 20-30 hours of play out of it again.  Yay 10% discount on used and buy 2 get 1 free on used at Gamestop.

Apparently I've loaned this game out to someone.  I wish I could remember who.  Grr.

YAY! I hear that.  I snagged Rapala fishing (just got back form a fishing trip) and Ultimate Spiderman.  I'll load up Mercs tonight.

I went to two gamestops the other day and tried to find this deal but couldn't-is it definitely still on? I want that and at least two other PS2 games so I could use this. Could it be a local thing?

Hmm... could be local, or it could have ended this weekend.  I got the games thursday or friday.

The signs at my local (Dallas/ Ft. Worth) gamestops show the deal will be going on until 5/15, if I recall correctly.

I was playing Mercs the other day and didn't run into any crashes or minimap problems, but I only played for a couple hours. 

I noticed at my local GameStop that the sign for 2-for-1 was only for the XBox section and not elsewhere.  I wanted to pick up a couple older Cube games to play on my Wii but decided to take a pass since the signs weren't up for those (and the counter-jockies were busy).

I cleaned some crap that I hadn't noticed before on the disk.  It seems to be <knocks on wood> working fine now.  Haven't had any map errors or crashes since.  I'd forgotten just how much fun this game is.  Really can't wait for Mercenaries 2 to come out.

I drove all the way to the Chinese tent from the American Embassy two nights ago, and it locked up hard just as I was pulling into the compound.

Yeah... played about 2 1/2 hours solid.  No lock-ups, but the minimap goes blue (and useless) anytime I'm actually on a mission and near the mission area.  <shrug> I can work with this.  I love the K200 APC... such a fun toy... stupid SK's that don't move out of my way fast enough... end up running over and blowing them up by accident.

I"ve read reports of Mercenaries locking up for quite a few people.

I remember the original Xbox title was buggy if the disc was less than perfect, or if the sun was shining at just the right time of the day or something.
