When I was at the Best Buy near me in Patchogue, NY, I noticed they had BK Origins marked down to $9.99. The little game tag divider thing wasn't the normal one but a computer printed sticked that said "Was: [however much it was] Now: $9.99" So I doubt it's universal. But if you have a BB near and you want the game, it's cheaper than the $15 clearances at other stores.

do you have the SKU number? it will help some people to verify the validity of the price if it is actually a cut or clearance.

Hmm...never seen "was $xx now $xx" at best buy.

Doesn't sound like a frontline game, so its probably an odd YMMV clearance at (roughly) 75% off.

I want this! Too bad I don't have a BB near me and this doesn't appear to be the same price online.

This is $20 at TRU or less if you can find a copy. This 'was XX' thing sounds like a returned/opened copy.

:( I don't. Since I haven't even started BK1, I decided to pass on it. Sorry Nicole Hernandez.

Hey Chronis, I just stopped by the same bestbuy in patchogue (near sunrise hwy right?) and the price tag said "Was 9.99, Now 4.99". One price change later, and I nabbed a copy for $4.99. When I left around 8pm there was still a copy left.

:applause: Yup, that's the BB. I'm surprised they dropped the price again though. Especially since it's one of the better Cube games they have left.

Man you guys are lucky. The manager of the Best Buy I go to looked at me like I was crazy when I asked him about green tagged games being 50% off (as is the case in other BBs in the area). I think he said he would "give" me 10% off of a game that was $50 >_<
