The price war continues and CAGs are the winners. Amazon matches Walmart's price once again.

Has it shipped yet? If not, e-mail them now!

If they give you shit, just cancel it and reorder.

Game is well worth $60, no-brainer at $40.

i just got a PS3 for christmas and shoved it in my closet since I have MW2 and some other 360 games to keep me occupied until then (also, christmas is just more exciting with more boxes)

and I probably wasn't going to buy Uncharted 2 until I beat Uncharted 1... think this is as low as it's going to go? should i just buy it now or wait?

$40 is still expensive.

There are alot of cheap PS3 games you can play until UC2 drops.

Uncharted 1 took a long time to drop if I remember correctly. However this is pretty much guaranteed to be Greatest Hits with plenty of black labels still floating around when it drops. If you have the patience to wait until next year you will be able to get it for $30 or less.

this signature is an illusion and is a trap devised by satan. go ahead dauntlessly! make rapid progress!

Yeah go to the 'help' page and go to 'contact us' and click on the e-mail tab and ask them if you can either cancel or get the lowered price. They will more than likely lower the price and only charge you $40 cause they're awesome like that.

On the other hand Fuck Best Buy I bought it at full price from them minus a shitty $20 gift card I got for buying RE5 at full price.

Last time I ever do THAT again, especially since I've only played Uncharted 2 for maybe a couple of hours.

there's always a chance amazon or some other retailer could sell Uncharted 2 for ~$35 this holiday season but if Uncharted 1 was any indication, $40 is probably about as cheap as it will get until it becomes a Greatest Hits title 6+ months from now.

^It doesn't hurt to try. Worst case scenario, buy it again and return the first one and get at least 5 bucks or whatever back. You'll have to pay the shipping to return it, but you'll get some of your money back.

Thanks OP. I was disappointed that there wasn't a deal for this game during the week and I really wanted a better deal than the $29 for Killzone 2. These were the 2 games I was holding out for and I'm glad I got what I think is a good deal for 1 of them.

He's a CAG like the rest of us! I'll bite for $25 or less heh.

On another note concerning pricing...
Last BF Heavenly Sword was $19.95, now it's been $56 for the past year LOL.

You guys are too spoiled. I got mine when it was $59. I don't even remember Uncharted 1 going on sale before it became a greatest hits. I remember stores still selling that one for $59 earlier this year.

I'd say based on this being a top teir Sony game that 40 is as good as it gets for a long time. It seems like the good PS3 games don't drop in price for anything less than a Greatest Hits collection addition.

I got it for 14.98 on Thursday! I just got my PS3 yesterday, so I had no need to own it before then. Amazing deal!

Spoiled? I disagree.

The ones who buy UC2 for $40 are spoiled. For $34, one could pick up Mirror's Edge, Dead Space and Valkyria Chronicles from GameStop used.

Mirror's Edge + Dead Space + Valkyria Chronicles + $6 Dollars

Versus.

UnCharted 2.

I think we can all see Option 1 is better. Option 1 is just an example.

Now, if you have every game worth playing that is cheap, yeah, ok, buy UnCharted 2.

But when people are considering paying $40 for UnCharted 2
before even playing some of the top-notch AAA games like:

Dead Space/
Mirror's Edge/
Valkyria Chronicles/
UnCharted 1/
Ratchet Future ToD/
Metal Gear Solid 4/
Assassin's Creed/
The Darkness/
Devil May Cry 4/
BioShock/

that are ALL very cheap now, then something is wrong. Unless you have played through those games and many of the other games that I can't think of off the top of my head, buying UnCharted 2 is just ludicrous at the $40 price point.

The only way I see such a purchase as justifiable is as follows:

1) Birthday Present for someone.
2) You are going to die, and you want to play it before you die.
3) Someone is in the hospital.
4) Christmas present for someone. (honestly, you should just buy them Valkyria Chronicles for $20. It would be better for your wallet AND their gaming variety.)

5) You have a high income.

Now.. while Justification (5) is an almost valid justification, it is also part of what I call financial stupidity.

$40 is expensive to a CAG and if you're in no hurry to play it, he's right.
