Is $40 the MSRP for Reach yet? Fable 3 has been at that price for awhile and with it being a year since launch I would think Reach would be at that point also.

The msrp seems to still be 59.99. The halo and gears of war games plus sony's first party games usually take a year to drop in price (they turn into greatest/platnum hits) these games hold their value for a while

I believe it has been reduced to that price at Microcenter. It has been that price there for a while now.

Every retailer seems to be selling it for 39.99. This isnt a price drop from gamestop though as it says in the ad "reg price 59.99".

might go for a used LBP. would prefer to save a few bucks at bbv, but the one near me never has anything of use when it comes to used games.

still no b2g1...seems like its been ages.

I went by BBV today since it's beside the PO, Halo Reach is now $24.99. I almost kicked myself because I hooked a friend up with a new copy during the B1G50% at Best Buy.

Thanks for the recommendation, but I don't normally buy used games to keep, just to flip.

I have noticed that Gamestop has done this a lot lately. The last month or so, they have had a game on "sale" for the price that it is "officially" dropping to the next week.

Everybody always seems so excited when they can pay the price-drop price early. Except when it's Gamestop...in which case Fuck STICKERS!

It's a way to drive sales before the official drop when less people will care.

Im suprise the title didn't have spit in digust in it. From what I've seen on reivews Cars 2 is a pretty good game. Not a bad price for that. Halo Reach should of gotten its mrsp down for months now, may buy it with my b2g1 coupon.

Thanks ! I edited the thread title to add killzone 3 in it. I wonder why gamestop didn't put it in the ad ? It was of the biggest fps releases of the year imo

I agree that the price isn't great but at least with the three games mentioned in the thread title you get more than your 40 bucks worth

Don't know if you want to add this to the title but the pre-owned steal of the week is PS3- Sports Champions for $6.99. I don't have a ps3 yet so I can't say anything about this game.

I wonder why I don't get it through the email. Oh and why don't you own a ps3 ? It's great ! I encourage everyone to have both hd consoles

Grabbed a DJ Hero 2 turntable bundle for Xbox at a local GS. Not as nice as the TRU deal would've been, for $20 I can't complain - even picked up the original used for $10 in mint condition (surprising for GS).
