    Hey guys. I was in Blockbuster over the weekend, and a LOT of their new (unowned, not preowned new) have been marked down. The new releases are still full retail, but a lot of stuff is marked down. I remember Ratchet and Clank for PS3 for $33. I know MSG4 is included, and I don't remember what all else. Just wanted to pass this along.

    Cool. Ratchet and Clank was excellent, but it had no business being $60 this long after it came out.

    Yeah, they have to come around and realize that the PS3 is now a couple years old and older games shouldn't still be $60. Uncharted has plenty of info on it's sequel that will probably be out within a year, and it has been out for so long now, yet they still feel like charging $60.

    I have seen Uncharted for $30 new. I was also surprised to see Best Buy run a sale on some pretty recent games last week. Fallout 3, Dead Space both $10 off and PS3 Bioshock for $40.

    Ahh, well I haven't been looking all over for it, but I know just a few weeks ago I saw it for $60 at TRU and Target.

    Uncharted is the best exclusive game on PS3, but everywhere I've seen it it's still $60. I know somebody had it on sale recently, but that's not the same thing. I think Uncharted is well worth full price, but I also think it will reach a greater audience at $30, and if that isn't the new price it really should be.

    Yeah I think it was on sale at Target. After checking online I agree, it should have been dropped by now.

    Is it just me or do they really drag out the price drops on PS3 titles? I know I find PS3 games clearanced at Target before I see a normal price drop.

    Oh, and Uncharted is $40 at BB.

    might be just your place...online its still $60. and majority of the time, what the price is online is what it usually is at the stores here
