As of yesterday (April 19) in Fredericton, NB the two EBs here reduced the following NEW games to the following RIDICULOUSLY LOW prices. please note I have listed the game's titles, system, price, and a symbol which indicates with which emotion you should respond to said prices.

Stranglehold CE:360 - $15.00 (!)
Spiderman: Friend or Foe - $10.00 (forget which system) (?...)
Chibi Robo: Park Patrol:DS - $10.00 (!!)
uhhh other actually good games which I am forgetting right now.

I bought El Strangleholdo for this price, mmhmm.

That's a pretty good price for Stranglehold. I'll probably tell my buddy to pick up a copy (he couldn't stop playing the demo). Hopefully this will be on in GTA. Also, were these prices for used copies or new copies? I'm assuming used, but one can hope.

Would it be likely that the PS3 version of Stranglehold CE went down in price too? :D

That would be kick-ass if that drop is on the PS3 version of Stranglehold as well (comes with Hard Boiled).

This is the kind of deal that will stay exclusive to CAG.

If it was on RFD, there will already be multiple post regarding BBV's TIV and how some a@@hole drove to 5 EBs so he can buy like 10 copies of each game. NOT COOL.

I'll gladly post my review:
http://www.honestgam...: Friend or Foe

I hope the PS3 CE of Stranglehold is on sale too. I want Hard Boiled (and I have the 360 one already).

I'll have to see if they have any copies of Stranglehold. I almost bought it for 2/40 at Rogers yesterday, so this would be much better!

360, all $10, forgot to ask about PS3 silly of me considering I own one...

Madden 07
March Madness 07
WWE 2007
Two Worlds
Project Sylpheed
Superman
Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man FoF
Stranglehold CE is $15

Can't think of the rest. Picked up Stranglehold CE and FoF (easy 1000 ach points). Thanks OP.

Actually, 925 are easy, but take a TON of pain to get through.
The last 75 point achievement takes like 10 plays of the last level, which would be horrible (I couldn't do it).

Is this all across Canada? I'd pick up FoF and stranglehold for sure. But even more I'd love to PM at FS.
Project Sylpheed any good by the way?

No, but apparently people are still buying FoF, so I guess my opinion doesn't matter.
I'd say get 5 copies of Sylpheed over Spiderman:Fof.
Sylpheed: 4/10
Spiderman:FoF 2/10

Azumangaman changed his Azumanga avatar. That's not very Azumangamanly of him.
I tried the Sylpheed demo and it confused the heck outta me ._.;

Prey Limited Edition was also $15 (or was it $10, I can't remember)

All Pro Football 2K8 (360, PS3) was $10 I believe.

Those are the ones I forgot, thanks.

All-Pro football is fun for 10 bucks, I seriously considered repurchasing it but wussed out. Too many games to play.

Yeah, I just saw some of these deals at EB today. Stranglehold is a fun Max Payne clone and is a great buy for 15 bucks. =)

ALSO, if I recall correctly, I think I saw The Darkness (360) for 15 new and 10 used.
The Darkness (PS3) for 20 new.
