I want this, but I keep thinking it's gonna drop like a rock in price soon. To jump on it for $89.. or to wait.. hmm...

Waiting for BF deals on DJ Hero. This is going to be one of the more available discounted items in BF IMO.

It'd have to be online, as the retail stores have their ads done already. Haven't seen a BF ad yet have this game in it.

Amazon or Buy might run it if they have huge overstock.. which I assume they do.

Just wait and this game will drop like a stone. Wouldn't be surprised if it's less than $60 by springtime.

And to think I ALMOST bought this at GS yesterday for 119...sooo glad I waited. I'm really tempted now to order but I think I'm going to wait till it's 70-ish.

Thanks OP! Great deal, but like the others I'm waiting. I'm literally falling all over these things (or bumping into them) in most of the stores I go to. I expect a drop (hopefully below $89) somewhere between BF and Xmas.

No way. If it was just software then I'd agree but with the hardware I just don't see it.

I stated in an earlier thread, this game (along with BH) has Target Clearance section written all over it. They saturated the market with these plastic peripherals, now they're paying the price (at the worst possible time). Didn't they learn anything from the past mistakes of comic books and baseball cards companies?

Nice find. I don't think I can part with $89 right now. I guess I'll wait til 2010.

I really want this, but just can't justify it at the price... especially knowing that a (steep) drop is inevitable.

I really feel bad for this game. It is my kind of game and I know I'll enjoy it but like many others will knowingly wait till it drops a tremendous amount.

I feel the same way. The game looks and plays great.

At this point, they really don't have a choice but to drop the price (to recoup some serious revenue lost). They have about 30 days to make a decision on a universal drop before retailers start taking matters into their own hands.

When they do that, you better believe they'll "bend us over" on DLC pricing to make up for it.

You maybe eating those words very soon...

"...when you compare it (Brutal Legend selling 215,000 units for PS3 & 360) to DJ Hero, however, which only sold 122,300 units.four platforms. Yes, it was only on sale for five days in October (still a long enough time to pick up decent numbers), but this was Activision's first crack at their own "Hero" game. It had an expensive marketing campaign, and was backed by heavyweights like Daft Punk, Jay-Z and DJ Shadow."

Brutal Legend (360) - 150,000 units
Brutal Legend (PS3) - 66,000 units
DJ Hero (360) - 62,000 units
DJ Hero (PS3) - 39,000 units
DJ Hero (Wii) - 19,000 units
DJ Hero (PS2) - 3,300 units

Not to mention in less than two weeks from shipping, is already ending up at GS used for $59.99!!!

I'm pretty sure this game will tank in price.

By the way OP, thanks for the heads up, pretty damn nice, with free 2-day shipping and all.

Nah, Activision changed their production order to compensate for low preorder sales.

That coupled with the net revenue being triple that of a 60 dollar game and it's not quite such a "huge failure".

It's needs to clear 500k before the end of the year and it will need word of mouth and a price drop to 89.99 get there but there aren't tons of these sitting on target shelves. Most stored halved the space for DJ Hero that was set aside for other Hero games.

The game should have been 90 to begin with but I doubt it will be 60 new until next summer when the big clearance begins for the sequel.

I wonder if the PS2 version will drop to under $60 first, 3300 is so much lower than the other system sales.

Looks like it works on Renegade Edition, too. Will save over $20 compared to when I bought it at Best Buy w/ the 10% movies/music/games coupon. Good thing I didn't open it yet.

i'm just wondering what kind of price drops/deals can be expected for the renegade edition this holiday season. i'm not typically into special editions, but i've heard various people state that it sucks playing this game if you need to keep that turntable on your lap, and i don't want to drag something in front of my tv to set the turntable on everytime i feel like playing this game. having a case that doubles as a stand seems pretty important.

Being $59.99 USED at Gamestop doesn't mean anything about the future price of this, doubtful you are going to see $60 unless it's a YMMV clearance.

I haven't seen huge stacks of this game anyplace but Costco.

Renegade could go either way. It sure takes up a ton more space in a store but only Best Buy and a few other stores carry it so less chance for clearance. I'd think it'll be 80 bucks at best but I doubt there will be tons of them around. Maybe Amazon...

I have the renegade edition and I love it. People are right about it being difficult at Hard or Expert when playing in your lap. Thing is, setting up the case is a a bit of a pain and is a little unstable. It's unstable because it's 4 feet off the ground so many people's home set ups can be probably be even more unstable. That said, I intend to set it up for my eventual expert run.

The case is great for storage or travel though and has a decent build quality as well.

what was the lowest price for gh3 ? $40 ?
if gh3 was $40, i can't see dj hero will ever drop below $60
