hey guys, the ps3 versions (and maybe 360 too) have dropped on these two super hot titles...

39.99 new
34.99 used

EXCELLENT deal on either, i was suprised to see both of them drop like this. anyhow, thought id share this w/ my fellow CAGs!

If you use the 10% coupon and edge, youre looking at ~28 bones!!!

Prince of Persia must be the quickest price drop ever. Two weeks!?!
The trade list is long, but distinguished.

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

if you purchase online you could use cag16 and get 16% off but i'm not sure about the quality you get from gs's online store.

Those prices are dropping fast, I got PoP for $40 a week ago about, and I have already beat it :P I will definitely check out Far Cry 2 during the B2G1 deal coming up, might be able to score some games on the cheap.

I got Midnight Club for $30 new on BF too :)

In my opinion, the new POP just wasn't up to the standards fans were expecting from the previous ones. It had repetitive game play, you can't die, and you can defeat every enemy as well as the bosses in the entire game with the same combo. The visuals were great, but the game play and story just wasn't there.

That has to be a new record, even for an ubisoft game.

Ah Ubisoft. You keep breaking your own records.

This is why I never buy Ubisoft games until 1-2 months after release. They have done this for at least the past 2 years.

I don't know why you guys are acting so surprised. It's a Ubisoft title and Prince of Persia sold like crap.. I'm kinda shocked it didn't release at 39.99.

Yeah, when you cant really control your guy its like watching an interactive movie or something when what you really want is to play a game...

Too bad, I had high hopes for PoP...

Wow that makes me even more glad that everyone talked me out of paying $40 for PoP the other day. I still want to pick it up at the inevitable $19.99 though.

Endwar is also 39.99 new 34.99 used maybe thats old though

How's the headset that comes with this? Might be a way to get a decent headset (and flip the game) for $40.

Endwar 39.99 is for the xbox360
The ps3 is 89.99 with the headset which imo is just ridiculous cause the headset is not that great

im still amazed that reviewers are eating PoP up, like its the next Ico/SotC (which I've seen reviewers compare it to...BLASPHEMY!). I found the same problems with it as tenchi; tedious/easy combat and non-challenging overall.

I really hope this game gets overlooked when its awards time.

Indeed it is, I like how they did it Open World this time, and how everyone wants to kill you.

Silence you.
Hardcore/leet gamers knocking it will drive the price lower, lol.
Had rented it, played I'm guessing about 1/2 to 3/4 judging by the map.
Didn't feel worth $60, but $40....really tempted.

Time to buy a new copy and return it on the old receipt, as it's less than 30 days since it came out for PoP. Fary Cry 2, nope.

Dude, thanks!! I've been waiting for this one to hit $39. This, and Mirror's Edge.

Kinda quick for PoP to already drop price already. Has anyone seen PoP's sales figures yet? Are they really low or something?

Just a PSA, Far Cry 2 is awesome. Thanks.
