Yup -- and perfect timing, too! If a local GameStop has a used copy this weekend, then I'll snatch it with the B2G1 deal.

It'll go lower. Alone in the dark is destined for the Bargain Bin, no matter what system it's one.

This version of the game was supposed to be a big improvement over the 360/Wii version. I guess the stigma was too much to overcome.

IMO, Alone in the Dark, in addition to Eternal Sonata and Bioshock, should have been released at a bargain price in the first place. It's the least they could do for making PS3 owners wait 6-12 months for a port, regardless of whether the ports have "extras" or whatever. Anyway, I'll wait till Amazon price matches since I have a GC there.

And don't forget Overlord. Which was selling for ~15 when the PS3 version launched for 60.

Fastest 50% drop on a PS3 game ever? I know Beowulf was quick, but I think this was even faster.

Yeah, but the game still sucks as bad as it did on the 360 :(

The most important question to ask is if I can kill someone with the Batrang


Just call my local bestbuy and they had no clue about a sale..

Are they still going to patch the 360 version?

It doesn't look likely because the game didn't do well.

Hrm. 24 days to drop $20. This game actually released for $50 on the PS3.
I think NFL Blitz 2 dropped $20 in 14 days.

It's just that simple.

I think legendary was faster, dropped to 29.99 a couple of days after it released at 59.99.

The good:

  • May encourage pyromania.
The bad:

  • May encourage pyromania.


In case anyone's wondering, the answer to everything in this game is fire. I'd like to say I'm joking, but sadly I'm not. Only beaten the 360 version, but from what I've heard on the improvements in this version, it's still not really fixed. Not worth it at this price.

It's an acquired taste that really lives a bitter taste in your mouth. Even with Max Payne himself doing the main voice over I struggled to finish the game and burn all the roots, but it wasn't too hard to get 1000/1000 (should I even be proud of that, lol.) on the 360. Jared cracks me up with his constant swearing. I was hoping for bullet time but the closest thing I got to that was chucking a moltov and shooting it near a Humanz.

It's just that simple.

The roots are bad, but the driving sequences are horrible. Checkpoints in the PS3 version should help, but I bet you'll still have to go through that crap numerous times.
