Talk about a fast drop. I know this isn't a universal drop, but it is a drop none the less. I'm still waiting for the $20 price point.

It's $40 at CC next week too. Maybe that should have been the msrp.

$20 is my price as well. Only one more week or so of waiting it seems!

Wow, that WAS a pretty fast drop.

I'm holding out for a $20 price point as well.

I feel bad for whoever rushed out to buy this day one. Although I think they would still be able to get cash back since it dropped so fast...

I think this is a record in price dropping. Way to over hype a crappy game!

Beowulf has the record, it dropped from $59.99 to $19.99 in mere WEEKS!

Seriously. It's a shame too because the games actually not that bad. Worth 60 probably not. At 40 I'd have to say probably.

EDIT: I've actually played the game and beaten it.

Haze was too hyped. After watching the gameplay trailers, I knew it would not make a AAA or high scoring title. I guess I'm in the boat with the 20 dollar price mark. Is it even worth that price?

I bet Haze won't be too far behind. I really see this hitting $20 by the end of summer.

I'll be getting it then.

I'm thinking about buying the game, beating it quickly (spend a weekend passing the game), and then reselling it on Ebay ASAP. I did the same for Dark Sector and it only cost me $1 overall hehe. Cheaper than a rental!

Well, to be honest, it's hard for people to be outraged about something once they know the facts. And it takes more effort to dig up facts than be outraged. ;)

Or you could just rent it (somewhere other than blockbuster).

Yeah guy above knows. Ebay prices are in the mid 30's to low 40's. You might be lucky but you also might be out 10 or so bucks.

Wow, this game is dropping fast. Based on the reviews, it may even be a questionable purchase by the time it hits $20 next month.

In that case, I think I'll wait for a friend to buy the game and borrow it :lol:

I don't think they hyped it as such. Isn't that what Killzone 2 is supposed to be? Of course, I suspect that won't be great as well since it is allegedly ready to go but delayed until February 2009 because of the upcoming Resistance 2 launch.

Hahaha, my first thought when I saw this thread was, "I'll only buy Haze when it hits $20". Guess I wasn't alone.

Lair is also in this category for me. I've actually seen Lair marked down to $29.99 at my local Target, but I just can't justify paying that much for a game that only mildly intrigues me.

No thanks. Not until I see it in a bargain bin for $9.99, and even then I'll be daring myself to buy it.

It's not that fast of a drop. Keep in mind both COD4 and Assassins Creed went on sale for $37.99 not even a month after their releases.

Also the fact that Haze is an Ubisoft game means that no matter how well it sold it would drop in price fast.

Same here $20 is the magic number, as with Timeshift which I just picked up. Dark Sector I will probably go as high as $30 on. Oddly enough Lair doesnt seem to be dropping like other titles have. Possibly because the stock isnt as high so there is no reason to have a fire sale, just keep slowly milking it. Plus its a unique game, even if rated poorly, and not just generic FPS #XX.

I rented it the week it came out...

6/10
Graphics are very average, maybe even sub-par. The controls are smooth, the gameplay is annoying in the first half of the game. Your teammates will turn red and start shooting randomly or firing on you even. You also have these annoying "nectar disruptions" in which your screen goes fuzzy and black & white and you have a hard time controlling your guy....very annoying. When you switch sides (sorry I'm assuming everybody knows about this, they never kept it a secret) the game is much more enjoyable. You use tactics such as planting grenades in the dirt (to use as a mine), and play dead (since the nectar guys can only see living people--doesn't really make sense but anyway...). The story is probably the best part which is sad cause its nothing great by a long stretch. Its also very short, pretty sure I finished it in about 8 hours included the times I died.

What? A Ubisoft game dropping in price mere weeks after being released? NO WAY.

Seriously. I've stopped buying any and all Ubisoft games until 1-2 months after release. They do this with nearly every single title they put out, good or bad.

It's not that fast of a drop. Keep in mind both COD4 and Assassins Creed went on sale for $37.99 not even a month after their releases.


Haze came out on May 21. It is June 6. You do the math. That is a very fast price drop. CoD4 and AC both went on sale during the HOLIDAYS.
