Brutal Legend $19.99 - New MSRP

I didn't see any threads about this but when I was at EB earlier today I saw Brutal Legend for the Xbox 360 priced at $19.99 on the shelves. Used price was 17.99. Online price is still $39.99. I was in a rush so I didn't check out the PS3 section.

I had picked it up at Best Buy with the $20 coupon last month and I'm not sure if they were conpeting with that or what, but the price surprised me.

edit: Apparently it's the new MSRP so look for it to drop to this price everywhere.

[prices=360]Brutal Legend[/prices]

Ahh, I just saw it was $19.99 at amazon too. I wasn't aware the MSRP had dropped. It's still listed $39.99 at a few places, like bestbuy.com and gamestop.com but we'll likely see those go down in a few days.

wow 5 months and the game's MSRP is down to $20? What a failure of a game, I saw it coming. This game had failure written all over it. Thankfully this was Tim Schafer's last failure, he said if the game didn't sell well it would be his last.

I picked it up on launch day and wasn't disappointed -- $20 is a hell of a price.

It was fairly well received by reviewers and sold about 1 million copies across both platforms, so I'd hardly call that a failure.

Got this game as a gift when it came out so I really can't be too disappointed that it dropped so quickly. Do yourself a favor and pick it up for this price.

Do it for the Schafer.

The game actually received respectable scores and reviews. I am personally glad it dropped this quick because I have been waiting to play it but of course I am a gamer with a budget. I am looking forward to picking this up soon now.

Glad to see you were cheering for this game to fail though. That's what we need more of... Have you at least played this game? I would hope so before you started hating on it.

I'm going to check my local BBV to see if they've got a used copy for $10. That's a price point I don't think I could resist. They didn't have any last time I checked, but there is another BBV nearby (or at least there was - BBVs are dropping like flies, it seems) that I haven't checked in a while.

Man, I was a dumbass for buying this when it came out. Still got it in the wrapper. Just part of my backlog. Although I did get it as part of Best buy's B2G1F sale.

In case you've completely missed the coverage of the game, just be warned that the demo isn't wholly representative of the game experience. The demo makes it seem mostly like a third-person hack-and-slash, but as you get into the game, you find that the main battles are actually RTS-style affairs.

I enjoyed the game, more for the story, humor, and overworld than the RTS-style battles. Got about 3/4 of the way through it before getting stuck and moving on to other games. Definitely worth $20 or less though.

Hint - When buying games from EA or Ubisoft, wait 4 months and get it half price.

i picked this up during the B2G1 at TRU back in october, and it actually didn't hold my attention. traded it in for $30 with EDGE at GME - then i saw it on the BB gamer zone thread and picked it up last week for $20. this game is great for $20.

If Amazon drops to $20 before my Prime trial runs out, I'm in for one. :D

Game was good until the "RTS" portion kicked in. Then it completely sucked balls.

Don't expect Psychonauts with this game. This game turns to shit about halfway in, but I daresay the first half alone and atmosphere still make it worth $20.

PS3 Trophy Card didn't work very well, nor do I give a shit about PS3 trophies. I assure you though, I have a PS3.
