Long time reader, first time posting a dealer; Killer 7 (w/bonus) is $29.99 new at EBgames. com.

Anyone know if this is a glitch, or if it's in-store as well? Because if so, I may just have to go pick this up and save $2 and a weeks worth of shipping.

Here are the links, it's not a glitch but a definite price drop.
links moved, thanks strider!


edit: Does anyone know if EB refunds the difference on a game that drops in price within the 14 days?

Here's what you do. Buy it again at EBgames for $30, and take back the sealed EB copy to wherever you bought the other copy from with the $50 receipt. Problem solved!

Damn, this game must really suck to drop $20 so soon after release

Either that or they'll just refund you the difference if you bring them your reciept and ask.

No, it's actually incredibly good, just it's a niche game, not a blockbuster. Kinda like Psychonauts.

It could have just sold poorly, causing the drop.

In any case, I'm waiting for it to drop to $20 (or less), and this is a good start. :)

Maybe. Or it might just be a sale. I checked a few other sites this morning and it's still $50 everywhere else, so it may not be a universal price drop, but rather an EB exclusive.

And the cheapest I've seen it on Ebay is $30. So if you buy it now and play through it quick, you could probably make just about all of your money back. I'd love to rent this game, but since no rental places have it, I may just have to resort to buying it, then selling it if I don't care for it.

Just wait another week, it should be $10 by then

Simply put, it's not a game for everybody. Art is hard.

I'd like to get this game, but $30 is still too much when the only extra you get with it is a comic book. I'd be happy to pay $15-$20 less without the comic book. :D

Thanks. I finally used a $10 voucher that I had. $20 seems about right for this game. I've really wanted to play it and see all of the story, but with the gameplay anything more than $20 just seems wrong.

Agreed, looks like a EB price flux. Though it is weird that it's a brand new game really.

I'm still a bit indecisive about this as well. It probably won't take long for the used version to drop to $27, so it'd be about $20 a/c. But then again, the used version for the GC has never been in stock, so it could be awhile. Plus i'm not sure if it's a permanent price drop, or a paper mario-esque "unadvertised sale." I should call EB later and find out.

And the comic doesn't interest me much, since I'm willing to bet it's really poorly written (it is a free promo for a video-game after all), but the bonus would deffinitely increase its ebay value, if I decided to sell.

I suppose I'll probably buy it, but then wait a few days to decide if I should open it or not.

Here's a word of advice for those of you who are thinking about buying this game. You are either going to like/love this game or you are going to hate it. I bought the game on release and have played through it once already...the story is intresting if you can piece it together. The gameplay is mediocre at best... nothing special. Keep this in mind when you decide to buy it.

I would say most people should wait until it drops down to ~$20 before taking a shot at it. Unless you know you like this type of a game or think it's a must play I would wait to find it used.

the question is...after playing the game, do you regret your username choice? :lol:

I fucking loved it! The game is a total mind trip! Totally worth 30$. I paid 50$ and I don't regret it.

There is no way in hell is the game going to lower in price any more before the end of the year however. The people who are saying that are dreaming.

Just called an EB in North Haven, CT. They still have both in their system as $49.99, suppose it's an online only thing, for now at least

I bought the PS2 version on ebay at release for this price because I was too excited to wait for a drop on the GC one... wish I had more patience. The PS2 slowdown and loadtime is pretty awful.

This topic has been discussed to death, but just wanted to reiterate the warning for those trying to decide between the two versions...

Actually, I was just going to ask about this. It's an issue that comes up a lot for me since I own both a Gamecube and a PS2. Where does this get discussed to death, because I'm always scrambling for that kind of discussion, especially now with regard to "Killer 7"...
