Here are the games with the most CAG email price alerts set over the last week. The dollar amounts DO NOT represent an actual sale price, but the average alert prices that you and your fellow CAGs have set.

If you want to receive an email when a specific game hits your desired price, use the big search bar at the top of every page, click through to a game's page and set your preferred email alert price. You can then manage your alerts via the "manage email alerts" link located under the "price tracker" menu item in the navigation bar. We've also got a video demonstration.

Keep reading for the rest of the Top 20

Cheapy I noticed an issue in the price tracker. I selected The Beatles: Rock Band special edition and I could only price it up to $150 for an email alert and wouldnt let me go higher. Just thought I should bring this to your attention.

how quick do you get the alerts? Seems like i did not get the red faction one until monday morning as if no one was there over the weekend (i know its automated, i'm just saying)

One isssue I had with the alerts: It seems that the alert is just a one-shot deal. In other words, once you get an alert for a game, you don't get any more. Sometimes I don't want to buy a game right away even if it falls below my price. Is there any way to set it so that I continue to get alerts for a game until I specifically cancel them?

Can I make a suggestion for the price tracker? Instead of making it that emails are sent out only when the game goes under the price we pick, there should be an option to send a email with $5 above or so. Like, I have Uncharted set up for $30, but if Amazon decides they are going to price it at $32.98 for some reason, I would consider that. But I don't think the price tracker would alert me to that.

Chronis, you could always set it at $35 and then ponder the choice?

Hasn't Infamous been around $50 on Amazon? I'm not 100% since I don't have a PS3, but I thought I saw it in my surfing....

Now that you mention it, it is this very moment. But I'm sure thats amazon marking down the price, not Sony, who have a tendency keep their first party published games at $60 until a Greatest Hits version is released some years later.

No DS or PSP games in the top 20? That's weird.
