I ordered both. As mentioned by others I can always cancel the order before they are released.


Did the same.

for people who preordered both, did you place 2 orders or did you place 1 to save on shipping? (they have different release dates, that's why i am asking this)

Thanks for the news OP, I didn't order them, but if they are released at that price I will end up buying them when they come out. Hopefully other stores will have them on sale or something.

Awesome news. This means when these games are out we can expect more $40 titles down the road. I don't mind spending $60 on the AAA titles, but sports games need to be a bit lower.


I honestly get the most replayability with SPORTS games. I know a new one comes out each year, but I'll put endless hours in them with franchise and what not.

Test Drive is now $49.99 on EBGAMES.com. That MIGHT be the real price though...not sure.

If Top Spin ends up being $40, it's because it's not a mainstream sports game. I don't see the prices ever dropping for big 3 sports fresh out of the gates anytime soon. Now most sports have one exclusive maker so there won't be that whole EA/2Kx price war and no real incentive to drop the price since most sports fans upgrade every year.

I agree with what doubledown said, the most replayablility comes from sports games with online shooters being a close 2nd only because it requires other people. Every year i've happily handed money to EA for the newest college and pro football, college and pro basketball, baseball and now boxing games.

I'm debating whether to do this or not, and just tried checkout to see about shipping. If you order TOP SPIN alone the ship is $2.45 (they won't let you combine it with a used SAVER order), then there's tax, so it's over $45 all told per-title, individually, I believe. Still better than $60, but not as sweet as it used to be, sadly....and I think I'm going to pass. Not that there's a huge dividing line between $45 and $40, but that threshold somehow sends up a flag for me...don't ask why :)

The trade list is long, but distinguished.

Yet the 2K games on the 360 are $60 that look and play like crap but the EA games look and play great (but are stripped down) but still get pooped on from gamers. I am yet to have a game of NHL 2k not freeze up @ the end of the game, so it whent back to gamefly (I'm glad I didn't buy this game because I almost bought it 2 different times.)


You'd have more success spreading these lies if people weren't able to download demos of EA's sports games for free. Everyone knows that they're total rubbish.

This is not the time or place for this;
But I should state that I liked NBA Live over NBA 2K6, and I was very pissed @ the time I posted my op at NHL 2K6 since after EVERY game I had to reset since the game froze every time at the end of a game. NHL 2K6 would flash "Loading" and would never load promptly at the end of a game. I had to use the Xbox button go to dashboard then restart the game. I couldn't play a season so why should it mater that it is in the game if I can't play one. I know the EA sport games are stripped and it is inexcusable but at least they were overhauled new games (not Tiger Woods) not the same game on current consoles with a new fresh look (the same thing all the EA bashers have been bashing EA for in the past.) Madden is great and I can't wait for next years and I hope they add everything they took out.

With NHL 2K6 it is the same game no it is less of a game since it freezes on me every game and here is the kicker it cost [/b]$40 more[/b] then the one on the Xbox or PS2. (If EA charged $40 more the fanboys would have a hayday but not a one brings it up for the 2K series.)

I was excited about Top Spin 2 since it was announced at E3 as a launch title and it was on top of my launch list but after NHL. I will not preorder it, I will rent it first now.

Sorry for the rant.

Back on topic: I hope this price for TS2 is no indication on the quality of the game.

Yeah, that's DW5: *EMPIRES*. It's a cheapy release, like the DW expansion packs. It'll be available for the PS2 for $30. NOT Dynasty Warriors 5 special edition. They're still charging ten dollars more for it than all other versions.

Thanks for clarifying, I guess if the REAL price is $40, then the deal is not too hot. I may cancel my EBgames order now.
