Metroid Prime 2 only 15 bones at Ebgames.com

Looks like a temp price drop since the used version is still $34.99

In that case, it's a good thing EB isn't offering a $20 rebate, or we'd all be forced to listen to a variety of threads on EB screwing us over again. :D

I got mine for $30 at KBtoys. Haven't finished it (and have no desire at the moment to) but this is a great game well worth $19.99.

Nice price.....hopefully this is the first sign of a universal drop rather than temporary. Thanks for the heads up!

I paid $39 for this game, (which is actually the most I've ever spent on a game) and it was totally worth it. Probably my favorite game of this generation. Don't pass this up.

Awesome deal... I totally want to get this using my Syphon Filter rebate, but I ended up getting a $10 code instead of the $20... and I want to see if they will fix it, but I don't know if I should push my luck with that. Nice find, OP.

Too bad saver no longer works :cry:

Agreed. I've been waiting for a long time, would've normally picked it up when it came out but had no money for it at the time. I'm waiting for BB to have it for this price so I can GGC this bad boy.

Sold. I was waiting to rebuy and then rebeat MP1, but $20 is just to sweet.

I hate myself for buying that game at full price.
Oh well...
Atl least the game was worth it.

Yeah, I was going to say that, but I would be like a broken record. Everytime I see a post about a new game at the $20 price point at somewhere other than BB, I reference the GGC. ;)

I'm going to wait and see if the PO version goes down too.

For those of you wanting to wait to use the GGC, keep in mind that this is probably just an EB-only temporary price drop. Paper Mario was $20 once too but is now back to $50...

Just bought this game on total impulse. It will never be cheaper than this new, ever, and furthermore, I'd like to get the nice holographic packaging before it goes lame and player's choice-ish.

Question, is this game good? I liked the first Prime, though I never finished it--I got half-way through, then moved up to school again, forgot to play for a while, and before I knew it, when I started it up, I had no idea where I had left off and what I had to do next.

Still, I really liked the feel of the first Prime. I hope I won't be disappointed.

Also, someone mentioned "saver"...I assume that refers to the 2 dollar shipping and not some coupon code, since its a new copy and there are no codes for it...

Peace.

The first part of your post will almost certainly turn out to be false. I would bet quite a bit that eventually this will be less than $20 new. Of course, by then it'll likely be a players choice title, which would likely lack the cool cover art as you indicated.

Oh I love ebgames.com price drops!!

lets see so far to day in 2 different orders I have gotten shenmue, a dreamcast controller, a dreamcast VMU, MP2: echoes, all for a total of $33. Not to bad for me, if only I had an edge card or else it could have been cheaper

Well, yes, Target might have it at 16.88 for one week, but the truth is, very rarely do first party nintendo games drop under 20 dollars new.

Great game. Metroid Prime is the best video game of all time (well, it's my favorite one anyway) and this one is just a hair worse.

I don't think EB is going to fix the rebate thing, so I gave in and got my copy (which I would have eventually purchased anyways). CAG15/SAVER is working fine, so I got a cheap-o PSX game too.
