I have been playing X-Plane (www.x-plane.com) on Linux for the last month. If your into aviation and flying, it is an excellent sim.

Regards
Shelton.

Also checkout the various Bit Torrents. I know it is not buying the game, but some are just no longer available. The best luck I had getting Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri was the torrent. Loki games is no longer running. And to try to buy it, a guy wanted 200.00 dollars US, for just the disk. Soooooo off to the torrents.

This is the link for to get the torrent:
http://www.bittorrent.com/

and here is a link to one of the more honest torrents:
http://www.download-it-free.com/bit%5Ftorrent/

Best I could do.

OMG! Dude, that was so ingenious! How did you come up with that?!

I don't think I'd be asking if I were able to find it....

Does it have to be 2003? I mean 2004 is a revamped, improved and overall better implementation of the UE 2.0 than UT2003 ever was... Granted UT2003 seemed to have "bigger" characters and a way cooler introduction than UT2K4 (IMO)

You should be able to get it at Best Buy or anywhere else you buy games. . .

Don't you think I've gone to Best Buy, Circuit City, K-Mart, Office Depot, OfficeMax, Staples, and Wal-Mart? None of those stores have UT2003 in my area.

Have you tried ebay? A ridiculous option, but since UT2003 is out of sale, and replaced with UT2004, you might have some luck... What's the fixation with UT2003, anyway?

Good luck.

I'd swear I've seen it at EB Games, FYE, and Best Buy, at least in "Game of the Year" edition.

Where do you live? That'd explain why you've seen it. I live in a small town, so it may just happen to be out of stock....

Not me, I live in the suburbs of Detroit. The Best Buy I think I saw it at is right by the highway and some other busy roads too.

Would it be able from an on-line store? I don't know, something like Amazon or the like?

It's indeed available from Amazon, used. It'd be like buying from eBay....
