Very tempting as I am looking to pre-order this. Think Amazon will match? Is TRU pretty good with pre-order shipping timeliness?

With tax it comes out to $48.xx, still cheaper than Amazon, but they might offer credit or even PM with release date delivery. I think I might wait it out. Good find though.

The first one on the original Playstation was great. Everyone after that have been average to bad. So i'll sit this one out until it hits my $20 price point. :)

The original's creator is the lead on this game, and it's being marketed as a return to the franchise's roots (classic car chases, no wannabe-GTA on-foot gameplay). Plus it's got 120 licensed vehicles pulled from cinema's most iconic car chase scenes. If you liked the first, this will probably be way more up your alley than 2 and 3.

Only by submitting a lower price through the product page.

I have a feeling NewEgg or Amazon are going to match this considering the boner popping deals that have been going around these days.

This is music to my ears. Anyone have any idea if we'll get a CE for this? Doubt it after the disaster that was Driv3r

Why not still preorder it and see if Amazon does PM that way if they do, can always cancel and you are still get guaranteed it at that price if they don't

1. very high because Alice, Child of Eden, and others went back up before release date.
2. Up til the day before launch you can preorder but again no sure thing in pricing.
3. Unless there is an option for in store pickup, Stores doesn't match their site price.

It doesn't seem that the CE is going to be released in the US, despite the story and game's location being set here. Maybe that'll change in a month's time, but so far there isn't even any pre-order DLC lined up in the states.

I've got a thread about Driver: SF going on the CAG 360 forums. If anyone's interested in the game's other features, check out the OP: http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=299511

Besides graphics, how different is the Wii version compares to the HD consoles? I ask because many games are vastly different even though with same titles like Need for Speed Hot Pursuit, Transformers War for Cybertron, just to name a couple.

Really? I'm not looking to crank up any debates, but am curious why you think the handling looks poor.

As far as this deal goes, I'm still on the fence with my pre-order. This game looks so good to me I'm pretty much willing to take the price hit and get it from Amazon for release date delivery.

I don't want to poop on this thread either, as this is a good deal for those that want it.
I was looking forward to this game, but the demo left me underwhelmed. The graphics are great, and it's an interesting idea for a driving game, but the control is bad bad bad, and I was expecting like NFS physics, and it plays more like Cruisin USA.

The demo left me with a meh feeling. Great find for those looking for it at release though. I would say if you dont have to have it immediately, I think this will be one of those that will be under $30 quick. With SOOOO many AAA games coming out this fall, Ill pass on this one for now.

Thanks for the heads up though OP!

I just played the demo and let's just say that I'd hesitate to buy this at $4. This is by far the worst driving game this generation. Complete and utter garbage. Also, the psn demo doesn't even recognize my logitech g27 wheel.

Really???? I thought the 360 demo was a lot of fun! Especially the police chases. The first Driver on the PSX is one of my all time favorites.

Hopefully it'll be this price through Aug 17th, that's when the multiplayer demo for Driver will come out. I can decide then if I still want it or not since that's the main reason why I want this game.

The controls felt fine for me, I was able to dodge cars with no problems. You do have to slow down before making a turn though, can't go 100 mph on a turn. Shifting felt really smooth, in and out of vehicles with no hiccups. The demo didn't WOW me, but I did have some fun with it.
