It has been fluctuating frequently.

Edit 11/29/09: 360 version is out of stock. The price is unknown. Used copies are being offered in varying conditions for $27.99 which are Amazon fulfilled. Some claim to be shrinkwrapped.

Freakin' awesome price. Is this a BF deal that started? If so we got a LOT of good things to look forward to.

Shit... The game alone for Wii is $25 at Fry's right now... From what I've heard this game is worth maybe around $20 new... Just gotta figure if the Slimer statute + game is worth $26.78 (w/ leftover ECA code)...

Hm 80$ left in video game credits, and I've basically bought every game I want that is already out(thank you cag, and amazon, by the way), and I do want to play this...but do I want to buy it? Well if I wake up and it's sold out on 360, my decision is made. If not...hmm.


FYI: It also has a magazine deal for 50% off "select videogame magazines". It seems you'll get the exact details in the e-mail though, I can't find info on which magazines and what other games qualify, atleast not where I'm looking.

I bought it for 50 new, it's definitely worth the 30 price point for the slimer edition.

A slimer statue and some stickers. It's a good collector's item for GB fans.

QFT...

And to think I went through a load of trouble to buy it when it was a lightning deal a few months back. It was $90 list, marked down $40 - so the "deal" was for $50. An ECA double-stack brought it down to $32 - so yeah, ECA "abuse" really didn't cost them anything in that case :lol:. Actually this has been true with just about everything I bought from Amazon, even the new releases (e.g., R&C lightning deal for $30, and there have been many others).

But I jumped through hoops to order it while I was at dinner on my iPhone (which is a chore, I tell ya!). It sold out within 15 minutes, and I barely got an order in. I also used one of my $30 game credits from the trade-in program. I have yet to even remove the statue and look at it :lol: (though my son did play the game).

Um, yeah, good luck with that - they expired the last of them about a week ago.

Nooo! Not now! I always wanted this game, but was holding out for the $20 mark. But now that I have $22 in Amazon credit...this edition will only cost me $7.75. That's the great news.

The bad news is that I was saving my credit for BF in hopes of Dragon Age being $34.99 (if Amazon PM's Best Buy).

What to do? My gut is telling me to bite on this as I am a huge GB's fan.

Oh yeah, another was Persona PSP ;). Came up cheaper the other day than my 2 x ECA codes. So, pretty much the ECA enticed me to buy stuff at full price (or overpriced like this Slimer Edition was back then) that I wouldn't have normally bought - then they sell it all cheaper shortly afterwards anyway. Oh well... I'm seriously tempted to get another of these but then I realized that is pretty stupid - why double down on my original mistake? ;).

Don't get me wrong, the game seems decent enough - I didn't play it but I helped my son through parts of it. Just note that you can get it at Hollywood Video or Gamecrazy for $19.99 new if you are looking for that price point.

Dragon Age for $35 (potentially), eh? I will definitely be all over that - one thing I did hold off preordering in late summer was that one...

I got the PC Version of Dragon Age for $33 plus a $10 gift card. Nothing beats the ECA triple stack. except for that Tekken 6 Wireless Bundle. Man that was sweet.

As for this... I'll think about it. Probably pass, though.

Yeah, well...Dragon Age will definitely be $35 at Best Buy on BF...just don't know if Amazon will PM it for sure. Maybe...maybe not. This Slimer Edition for $7.75 for me is really tempting...

I'd love to finally get this game on the cheap, but I really don't need the Slimer statue. Guess I'll keep holding out for a sub-$20 price drop!

Thanks OP, was going to pick up the game during Gamestop's B2G1 but wanted the Slimer Edition for awhile. Excellent price point.

So...I decided to bite! Thanks OP! :)

I couldn't help it. With my $22 credit the total came to $7.75. I'd kick myself for passing up on the Slimer Edition at that price.

I started watching a Slimer Edition unboxing video on yoututbe, and didn't realize the Logo/Slimer statue was that big...that and that they only made 6,500 (guy turned it upside down and it reads, Limited to 6500 Pieces) of these. It actually looks really nice.

Being a huge GB fan...that sealed the deal for me.

Now I feel so completely naked when on Amazon...no more game credits...no more ECA.

Same here... looks like it's just my Chase debit card and I in my Amazon Black Friday endeavors. Hopefully, there won't be as many enticing deals for me, but knowing my weak-willed self when it comes to buying cheap games... :bomb::bomb::bomb:

Thanks OP. Had a ten buck vidya game credit, and put it to good use. I'm more interested in the statue n' stuff than anything, so I'm probably gonna end up trading the game in.
