On a random note, the Voucher that comes with UC2 has a PSP Uncharted Pinball game that works with Vita, that's oddly addicting. Definitely something to look into for Vita users.

So Gamescom just ended and as far as I can tell they never announced any price drops for hardware or software. So I guess this was just a "thing" that was happening.

The only thing they announced in terms of price cuts were "PS3 Essentials" which I am assuming will be $19.99 (they were listed as 19.99 in Euros). They showed 6 titles, but the only two I caught were inFamous and LBP.

They said that was Europe only.

Ah... Okay, I must have missed that part. I was trying to do some online tests and had the stream going in the back ground. I flipped windows at that time but must have missed the Europe only thing.

Uncharted 3 on Amazon appears to be at the new price when viewed on my wishlist, but when I click on the game it goes 4-5 dollars higher. I was going to impulse buy this game, but now that I have been forced to wait, I figure I should probably beat the previous 2 games first. Completely forgot about that. :lol:

What is this "play" you speak of? I thought these were nothing but decorative boxes to line my shelves with.

Went in to Toys R Us to test my luck for trying to price match Uncharted 3 while doing errands, ended up being a bust seeing as all stores in the area are entirely out of stock.
Guess my $5 coupon won't be seeing any use, though those new Halo 4 figures were tempting, as well as the Borderlands psycho that was there.
Looks like Best Buy will get my money once more when they finally change the price.

The PlayStation Store Update was just posted, and none of the digital copies reflect this MSRP change. Absolutely ridiculous.

If Sony really wants to push people into digital distribution, they're doing a horrible job of it. They did this with the PSP, too. They issued a platform-wide $30 maximum MSRP and then proceeded to allow $40 digital purchases.

Sony makes it hard not to root for the hackers dont they. :roll:

Also, a bit tangential but still related - how are you discouraging the used game market (for your developers) by making retail copies (which can be traded in) cheaper than digital copies?

It's 19.96 at Walmart.com( though it is currently sold out) and it is $19.99 on Newegg. Some of these places are sometimes slow to act when there is an MSRP drop/ Hell, Little Big Planet 2 SE was 39.99 for a while then dropped to 19.99 a month or two ago and Best Buy still has it at 59.99

I stopped collecting Halo figures but I just youtube'd videos of the new Halo 4 ones and they look sick. Master Chief comes with the cryogenic tube thing. :D But TRU has it for $30 and apparently Target has it for $25

If that's the case then I'm really glad I didn't waste my coupon on it, thanks for the heads up. Only single figure they had was the chief, maybe I'll go back for the Borderlands psycho tomorrow, or that Halo ghost they have on clearance for $15.
