    Only game I have bought on release for a long time was uncharted 3 and that was a bargain at 45 with 20 PSN voucher so in theory only 25 for UC3.

    I haven't bought any game over 25 in months. BF3, FIFA 12, Saints Row 3 and more and some even less than 20. Even SSX is at 21 delivered and Twisted metal.

    Whether its down to sales, online/supermarket price wars or anything else I'm not really fussed as its good for us but I haven't ever known games drop in price so quick. Unless if you are absolutely desperate to play something on release day then holding out for afew days works to save some cash is definitely worth it.
    I've got that many games in the wrapper that even where there is a new release I've got enough to tide me over until the inevitable price drop

    drop the prices to begin with damnit, they'd sell much more if they were cheaper


    Let's be honest: You sleep with anything that walks on two legs. Sometimes, you're not even that discriminating

    This. Brand new games now should be 29.99, no more, especially in times like these.

    I've noticed this as well, FFXIII-2 is only 20, that game must of bombed, in England at least.

    I bought Batman Arkham City for around $30-$35 online but Revelations was higher.

    In stores like wal mart, the prices are still $60 for brand new.
    As for why prices are dropping, it could be due to the economy.
    Even back in the PS1 and PS2 era, prices didn't drop like this.

    Personally, I think it's because the video games market is about to crash. (I'm hoping it's the case.) With all these corporations screwing the consumer at every turn, consumers are waking up to the fact that most games aren't worth the 50-60 dollars or euros these corporations are charging.

    Wow that's outrageous! I guess $60 ain't that bad when compared to what you have to pay for a game. And yeah I totally agree with some of your are saying about the games being cheaper, that would prompt people to buy more games and even though I don't buy used games, if I did I would prefer paying $30 tops for a brand new game then $15-20 for a used one.

    Video games are getting more popular so the publishers can probably afford to sell games at these prices.

    There are just too many games out there. The big releases come out during the holidays and overshadow the smaller games .

    The smaller games are forced to be released during inopportune times thus squelching sales.

    Don't know about games costing more each gen. My N64 games have 54.99 and 59.99 stickers on them from electronics boutique (Game) and I would not even dream about paying that now, 1 even has 64.99. I'd almost expect 3 at that price now days.

    has both consoles reached their prime then? and with the wii u being the first next gen, already. technology is just trying to keep up with the times.... were we not supposed to have hovercrafts here in the year 2012- at least that was a huge speculation! nonetheless we may be in another consoles' transition

    They have been around the same price for years in England back in the megadrive days I paid 40 for Mortal Kombat 3 I remember Sreetfigher was closer to 60 and Virtua racing was around 70 which I do own but bought it second hand.

    Nintendo games were always more expensive for some reason.
