New Copies are also $9.99 I know some people hate buying used games. Amazing game, one of the best PS3 games in my opinion for sure.
Yes I noticed the price drop this week. Might go up at the end of the week.
New is always better but when it comes to buying used PS3 games are more reliable. I've bought my fair share and haven't had an issue yet. Just have a look at it before buying, if they are not willing to let you due that don't buy.
