You can't point to the past and assume that's the current situation. They did set the standard (which I mentioned already BTW) but are now competing against themselves.
It's not just you man. This thread is filled with ludicrous replies. Best Buy has been setting the retail standard of video game sales for many years. A lot of people can't see anything past themselves though.

So your advice is what, to not be competitive for the next two years?
They're not going to have crazy blowout replacement sales while many of still have GCU into 2020.

Then he'd have to use the $100 at Best Buy. On what...games? Lol
Not really, you have to buy a Samsung TV and an Xbox. You'd save a lot more than $100 buying the TV elsewhere.

If this is BB at their best, I think it's time to start writing the eulogy. These are just the same prices over and over again, and even PSN has been undercutting these prices. The notion they are advertising these as Black Friday prices is pretty insulting.
I feel like their strat is to overwhelm customers with many games "on sale" but keep the prices high, in hopes that customers will say "well I have to get something during this sale" - half these games will see massive price drops in the coming months. Hold strong.
I know I am for GoW. It'll be $30 on Amazon in a couple weeks, I can feel it.

This is true. My point however is that by turning this into modern day Steam, it's actually MORE difficult to conveniently find quality games. All you have to do is look at Steam to understand what this eShop is slowly becoming. Nintendo has stated they want 20-30 games per week on eshop. That tells me they value quantity over quality - another Steam marketplace failure. I don't see how anyone could think that's a good idea for the regular gamer (unless you think the likes of the Apple app store and Steam are healthy marketplaces, of course).
I like the fact i can choose what I like, and not be told what is “good” and what shouldnt be allowed on the system.
What one person likes doesnt mean everyone likes.

Some of these indie devs should realize that you first have to become a hit, THEN make a limited edition. Bleed 2? Are you serious? Perhaps the markup is so ridiculously huge that maybe it costs nothing to make these because you can recoup costs after the 5th sale xD
