Not sure if some of you were waiting to PM a sale price on Dragon's Dogma but Best Buy has it for $39.99 which I believe is the cheapest it's been since release

wishful thinking for some reason this has been holding above $50 for longer than expected. I might bite if I can work something in to get the $10 savings code, still would have till end of october to match a cheaper price.:-k

Well worth it at this price. I paid $60 for it at launch and it's currently my GotY. A sleeper hit, IMO.

I'm holding out for the version that will feature all the DLC. It's a CAPCOM game, right? I'm guessing it'll be inevitable. While I liked the demo, I didn't think this was anything worth running out to get. People I know who've played the game enjoyed it, so perhaps it'll be on my summer backlog for next year.

Not only that, but by their own admission they want this to be a flagship franchise for them, so it seems inevitable.

I really do want to play this, and I'd have gone for $40 2 months ago, but now I've got so much to play that I may as well wait it out.

It no longer matters if it's a capcom game or not the GOTY strategy is being p/u'd by damn near everyone & b/c it's profitable it'll be here to stay. I'm ok with it I guess if there's enuf DLC to warrant a GOTY.

My way around overpaying is to max deal the vanilla copy & be ahead of the curve for a trade in or CL sale. Then I can easily wait for the GOTY to hit the $20ish sweet spot since I've already enjoyed the main course. If you do it right you're outta pocket cost will be around $45 or less.

Good deal on a new copy. I already got a used/practically new copy from gohastings a couple weeks ago for $30 and am still playing the game. I like it as a nice substitute till a new Monster Hunter game arrives. Capcom is taking this whole "gather materials" bit a little too far. Just too many things to combine now-a-days lol.

The game still trades into Amazon at almost $30 still so if anything it would be a $10 rental. By all means try the demo though and if you don't like the gameplay, dont't bother with the game.

This game is surprisingly retaining its value. I didn't know it was going to be such a huge success but I always like to see new ip succeed. It might be a while before Dragon Dogma drop in price, this is a good deal.

I got it for $55 used at GS and returned it in the week... The boss fights were epic but the fucking travel system of you walking everywhere and the damn pawns not shutting up really pissed me off enough to not keep it... Maybe for $20 at most.

meh.. think its worth it at this price? I was really waiting for <$30 or so. But then again if i wait too long people probably wont be playing it to use my pawn and stuff like that. Its been holding its value for a while.

Buy now or wait a bit longer.. dunno

you could buy now & add stuff to get the $10 savings code. Not sure if you're silver but if so you'd have till late Oct for it to hit your $30 buy price.

Got it for $50 on release at BB and plat'ed it in less then 2 weeks. While short it is well worth 39.99 not because it is the best looking game out there but because of the game play. Gfx are PS2 like at times so if you are expecting this gen Gfx wait and see if Capcom will put some effort into that dept. in the sequal. My 2 cents.

since the online isnt really conventional there is no real rush to get it with a backlog like mine.

I really want this. But I already own Skyrim, finished the main story line, and haven't downloaded Dawngaurd yet, and I have The Witcher 2, but I haven't even opened it yet.

Already owned this and put about 15 hours into it. So tempted but I just bought war in the north for 4 bucks. I'm hoping we get a gcu coupon next month.

The difficulty spikes in this game are ridiculous. The fighting was solid though. You should rent this one if you're unsure about it.

Wow, it took three months but the game finally dropped in price. Last time I saw that happen was Skyrim. Go try the new demo if you're on the fence (PS3 only) because it includes the entire intro, character creation, and you can use your save in the full game if you end up buying it. Definitely my GOTY, hands down.

Still hoping they add a hard mode soon so I can start the game over. When you're level 100+, you're pretty much invincible.

Me, too, hoping for the Gamer's Coupon that is. I would like to be able to pick this up for $10 like Kingdom of Amalur, which just a fantastic game really.

Quite honestly, I found the difficulty concerns to be a complete non-issue and am still puzzled by it. It didn't take long to be able to handle the enemies fine wherever I went. Just don't go wandering off early in the game until you do some of the beginning quests and you'll be fine. I would not let difficulty concerns keep you from getting this game at all.

They added an easy mode (or should I say girlfriend mode :lol:) so that's no longer an excuse. Everyone should just buy it now so they can experience the pawn system/UR-Dragon with an active community.

Yea, I call it baby mode. This game retained its value because it is surprisingly a great game. I have more fun with this than I did with Skyrim. Its not as pretty but it is just an overall better game. A steal at $40.

Do you still have the receipt? Just buy a new copy for $40 and return it using your old receipt.

Absolutely. Best Buy has a 30 day window for price matching. Just bring your receipt to the customer service desk.
