The Activision FPS "Singularity" is still listed on most sites-(including Walmart.com)-as $29.99. Cheapest price I've found, so far, is NewEgg @ $15, with free shipping. I was at my local Walmart last night. They had the game behind glass for 360 and PS3 at, of course, $29.99. I decided to pick-up the 360 version. I was pretty stoked when it rang out at only $10 (!!!). I had a curious look and the Wally-World associate said to me, off hand, "Hmf... Price must've just changed". So, not sure if it was just local. But knowing Walmart, I'm thinking it may be a "universal" price on this at Walmart(s)? Not sure. But wanted to post this in the hope it may help someone here out. Cheers!! :bouncy:

Okay this is a good game and a good deal. I loved the single player a lot and as many mentioned, it has a lot of similarities to Bioshock. The multiplayer is dead sadly, was a bit fun when populated.

New Years backlog completed: 14/100

I remember buying this game day one 'cause of amazon giving out a free comic book and $20 GC. I was so glad I did that,the multiplayer was so much fun in it's prime,and the single player was amazing as well. One of the few games I 1000/1000 on achievements.

I realize the multiplayer will probably be dead now,but the single player is well worth the $10 they're asking for.

Great to hear, guys. I just started it now. I would've picked it up sooner. Sadly, it was one of those games I "just overlooked". Any similarities to BioShock can't be bad... lol! Will have to post my thoughts as I get deeper into it. The multiplayer looks to be real fun. Perhaps one of you would like to schedule hopping into it at some point? Show me "how it's done" with Singularity online... ha! Speaking of BioShock... where the HELK is Infinite?!!? Seriously hope, with as many delays it has had, that they're using the time to really polish that baby!!! 1 and 2 certaintly DIDN'T dissapoint!

I got it from Gamefly for $8 months ago. Amazing overlooked game.

Not bad. Best Buy trade in for PS3 if you're unlocked should be like $11 so you could play this for free. (And get RZ points)

i bought this from best buy during the holiday season for 5 bucks and thought it was totally worth it. took around 5ish hours to beat the campaign. a good blend of Bioshock with COD (or similar FPS).

Good game. A lot of fun. Was sad that the online was dead when I played it 6 months or so ago. Probably no one playing at this point, but its worth it for the single player at least.

I bought this game about a year or so ago during one of Gamefly's sales. I enjoyed it, but never got past the part with those FUCKING spiders. It's such a pain in the ass that I can't finish a game because of one stupid thing like that.

Bad deal-it's been 5 bucks at KMart for 2 months now. And that's the 360 version. If you can find a PS3 version like I did, that scans in at 2.99!

Okay FPS, decent length. Not particularly unique or amazing, but an entertaining playthrough nonetheless. I wouldn't pay more than $10 for it though.

wonderful game. very much in the mood of bioshock. Takes about 12-15 hours to beat. i still play the multiplayer too. Its kinda hit or miss on people but usually i can get a game going without to much trouble. Multiplayer plays like dead space multi but is fun. Some unique creatures make the game that much more enjoyable.

This game was really good i thought, and overlooked. The shooting and movement feels very similar to MW2, but it has much more of a Bioshock atmosphere and story line to it.

I got this a while back on clearance elsewhere. You can tell that it's not a AAA game but I still thought it was a hell of a lot of fun.

this game definitely didn't get the respect it deserved back in the day. single player was extremely fun and the multiplayer was beast even with only 3 maps :)) Better than most of the crap that's been released this year!!!

I remember that part being pretty tough. Its definitely the hardest part of the game though, so once you get past that its not bad. Worth $10 for sure if you ask me.

Been waiting for an online deal for this for what seems like ages. All the deals for it have been in-store only...

Bad deal, hunh? I would have to say- NOT! $10, for a game with an original retail of $59.99 is a steal, even if you found it cheaper than that.

My local Sears and Kmart still rings it as $29.99 and some folks don't have that option. While Wally-Marts are on every street corner. So, doesn't hurt to give anyone, whom has interest in this game, a heads up, where it's cheaper, no matter how much. When you hit $10 or below, your really "reaching" calling something a "bad deal".

Besides, where was your thread stating it was so cheap @ Kmart, at the time you found it? Didn't do it, you say?

I think it's great you want to point-out where folks may be able to get it even cheaper. Helk, that's the entire point of this forum. But to sit there, be a wise-guy, and call it a "bad deal"... is an insult to everyone whom takes the time and contributes to this board in the hopes of helping others find something they've wanted at a price-point they can handle, and be happy with.

Hmmmm... I usually don't get upset like this. But.... for just some reason you're lil' mouth realllly irked me!

Interesting. Which stores? I did hit BB, Kmart, Target, TRUS, and Sears before Walmart. They all had it 29.99 for 360 and PS3. lol... BB had it on their "clearence rack"... and while everything else had those lil' "yellow stickers" with cheaper prices, Singularity was still 29.99. Go figure... what a suprise. lol! They did have a copy of the PC version for $5. TRUS was the worst though, they still had it @ 49.99! lol... I almost turned green. And it wasn't with envy.

I know it's NJ, RI, and MD. Others not too sure but that's a weird sample to not be everywhere.

On Black Friday Walmart had colored stickers for each price level and Singularity was one of them, after black Friday they're still the same price.

Most still have the stickers left on them too.

Gotcha! Mine didn't have the stickers. Probably fresh stock, with the B-Friday price. Just must've never changed the $29.99 rack-tag. You can add CT to the list. Had picked it up @ the Wally Super-Center in Waterford, CT. I would have to assume then that some Walmarts have diff games on sale during B-Friday, so it "might" be a some-sort of "regional walmart thing"? lol!
