I think it was $30 at Best Buy too... so after like a month the price drops like $20 on this game... glad I waited. Not sure if I'll end up buying the game, but it's a little more tempting as the prices fall.

it was probably in there because I'm a flaming homosexual.

I suppose this is a global price-drop then?

I'm tempted to get this at BB with a GGC, but I know it'll just keep dropping.

So did I. Another UbiSoft title $20 less a month later, I guess this must be permanent drop.

It never ends and there's always somebody out there with better shit than you, explain this to him while you put your foot in his ass. Violence is the only answer sometimes. Most of the time. All the time.

It's sad that publishers like Ubi who publish such great titles sell like shit, and publishers who put out a large percentage of shitty game like EA sell millions.

I'm guessing it's because of the 360 launch being so close. $30 for an Xbox version is a great outlet for UBI to get more sales on a previous/year old release, before console gamers decide move on to a new system of games.

The PC version still goes for $20, so an inhanced gameplay version for Xbox is definetly worth $30. I'm guessing it will not drop much below $30 IMO for a while. Plus Ubi, EB, GS, and did have a RBS 3 included, so that counted in on the value of when it first came, so I consider that not being offered as $10 of $20 drop.

I hope this is a universal drop. TRU has it and it's still $49.99. I'd definitely get it if it was $29.99. I have a TRU Visa and I get free $10 Geoffrey dollars back each month which I use to buy video games and action figures. Nice deal.

UbiSoft is really driving me crazy. They release a game for $49.99...then roughly 1-2 months later, they drop the price to $29.99 temportary.

Being that I'm a huge BiA fan, I just had to get the sequel at launch. Now i'm kicking myself in the ass. You would think being a CAG would smarten me up?

P.S. I'm not even going to admit to buying Far Cry: Instincts used for $40 either. ;)

It's not a price drop, EB's doing this as a one week sale.

That's a great price especially the used version of the game. Totally worth $20 after AC.

And it's just coincidence that Walmart, Target, Gamestop and Best Buy all have this game for $29.99 now right?:roll:
