around $30 new at Target, Bestbuy and GameStop with this coupon(expires Jan 31st):
http://www.2kgames.com/coupon/

around 31 used with edge card at GS (if you miss the coupon which expires Jan. 31st):
http://www.gamestop....roduct_id=71866

Probably has dropped to 40 bucks just about everywhere, but people in this thread have reported Bestbuy and Target.

Should be able to use the 2K coupon as a manufacturer's coupon to get it for $30 new. That coupon is only good until the end of the month though.

This will be the lowest the standard price goes until later this summer.

It's $43 on amazon, $39 at bestbuy.com so it seems like a pricedrop? This was the only reason I was gonna go to circuitcity, so sweeet. How long till it drop some more?

It won't drop anymore until late this summer as the new one gets close to coming out. This is the highest selling basketball game, no way the SRP will drop below $40 anytime soon.

I'm playing my 2k7 version with a roster that I manually updated. Am I missing something or should I upgrade to 2k9

Same dillema here. I skipped 2K8 for I though graphic was actuall inferior to 2K7.

Thank you very much for posting this; I was about to spend the $30 I saved from the CC deal that didn't happen.
I also have $10 on my EDGE card, which makes this deal sweeter.

the graphics get better each year...I preferred the gameplay in 2k8 as the paint moves and feel to it seems smoother and more polished,

but obviously 2k9 is the most modern feel, and I think the graphics are better than 2k8 and 2k7...only some slightly annoying gameplay issues at times, like guys not hitting wide open shots online for me but lebron will run through a hole team and dunk it :(

there's some good online modes for 2k9, but 2k8 was quite good....i like the news feed addition a lot, and the player bios, plus the roster updates are good to have and the ticker is good to have.

2k9 really is worth upgrading to if you are only on 2k7...

yeah, 2k9 graphics are pretty sick. especially on HD!

if you play at a certain distance, it looks as if you're actually watching a real game.

Yeah all the presentation is completely redone in 2K9, lots of improvements to the Association mode, online is 6 v 6 or 1 v 1, and the rosters auto update as soon as the game boots (this is only for single player stuff, won't change your already in-progress franchise.)

$40- 10 for the 2K coupon is a steal. Go, Go, Go!

Checked w/my local GS and this dude at counter told me its price is still $59.99. Not only that but also he tried to sell me opened copy as a NEW. Hate GS. I'm going to BB tomorrow.

Im on the fence for this game.....I bought it used during buy 2 get 1 and returned it because 2kSports hasnt changed the AI. The point guard handles the ball WAY to much and has way to much "Driving Force" when they go to the tin.

I tried to use the 2k coupon at a Gamestop/Babbages and they wouldn't accept it.

awesome game the online interface are kinda laggy but the gameplay are still the best. It takes time getting used to but it's more realistic than ever buy it now.
