    What the fuck? I look at this list, and most of these reduced prices are more expensive than how much the games cost here new…

    Since when did games get so expensive in the US? Either that, or they’ve gotten cheaper in Europe…

    Halo ODST should get a price cut to 30 bucks. I got more play time out of battlefield on arcade >:O

    Game prices have been pretty good in the UK for a while now… probably thanks to supermarkets more than anything.

    Doesn’t harm that so many games have been cut in price after failing to meet initial expectations either.

    Prices in the States also stay higher for longer. Rebel FM recently did a game-club on Heavenly Sword where everyone complained that the price was still so high, whereas it’s been discount here since release.

    Yeah, american prices are way above ours in the long term. We pay around $30USD for those games now.

    Guess we are more expensive on day 1 and half the price on month 2.

    Not too much to get excited about really. Still over priced to all hell.

    And thus, Walmart singlehandedly saved the Wii
