If I could sum up the major thing I miss about living in the US, I would say it's the relevance. There are all kinda of cool things happening in the tech world that are functionally only in the US. In this case the CAG Price Alerts it was cool when I lived in the US but up here getting alerts means pretty much nothing when the sales are rarely multinational.

There's not a lot to explain it's pretty much all there in the above paragraph. Just click here to sign up if you don't mind my referral. I would love to find a place to put price alerts again. Is there another site everyone is using or is this a potentially awesome find

Example:
Catherine is now $30 at Amazon.ca lowest price it's been yet.

Thanks will check it out. Nice to see something that has more than games (like PC monitors).
Also nice to get to the info right away without digging through forums all over the the internet.

That catherine picture on amazon shows the Art Book but mentions nothing of it in the descprption or title. Does it actually come with the art book?

has anyone found a way to alert them that a price is wrong? it could still be useful if they actually fix the prices

Please alert me when PS3 Catherine drops to $20. I'm rather surprised that I can wait out an Atlus game like this. I have an aversion to block puzzles, but the story sounds intriguing.

Pretty interested in Disgaea 4 at the recent drop to $30... I like this site :)

Seems like it only tracks Amazon.ca?

Dead Rising 2: OTR is currently $19.99 at EB Games AND on the PS Store.

It's a neat idea, but clearly still raw. Might aswell just go out of the way to check out the online inventory of your closest retailers - that doesn't take long either.

lol. that's one of 5 alerts I have on there myself. I have little interest in the block puzzle but the hype over the story has me interested.

Yeah what I really want is the CAG price tracker in Canada. If they were to say drop the other departments, include even BB/WM/FS, and/or Wikify the posts it could be something special. seems like it's too ambitious right now.

tbh, the gameplay is the best part of catherine. The story is alright, but isn't what makes it exceptional.
Also this game was already worth it at $40 so $30 is just bonus.
Probably one fo my favourite games this generation.
