That is one weak manager.
I have worked different retail jobs all my life and I have never had a manager give random discounts on new products. Clearance stuff and displays, sure, but if you came up to me asking to get a manager to lower the price I would tell you point blank not to waste my time or theirs. If you can't afford the price on the box then don't buy it, it's just a useless toy.
I actually find this somewhat offensive because at Lowes most of our hours were based on sales, if we started giving everything away for 50% because a costumer asks for it I'd be out of a job.
