What games are you all hoping will drop in price soon? I'm mainly hoping for all the RPGs.

Lost Odyssey is the one I'm really hoping drops soon. I want to play it so bad, but I don't want to pay more than $15 for it. It's pointless buying games with no multi-player right off the bat if you know they are going to have huge price drops later on.

Oblivion: GOTY Edition is another one on my list. I'm waiting until I can find it for $20 or so.

I'm also going to wait until Infinite Undiscovery drops in price even though it has yet to come out.

I might also wait for Ninja Gaiden II to drop in price before jumping in and buying one, but I'm not sure. If I can get my gamerscore completion to 90% I'll think about buying NGII at $50... Maybe...

A good idea would be to rent them. My rental store doesn't have skate and thats still 60 bucks. So thats really the only game I'm waiting for a price drop currently.

Well, I have it, but Gears of War's price for its age is rediculous. $50 for new and $45 for a used for a year 1/2 old game!

I recently got Lost Odyssey for 15 (About $30) New. I doupt its going to get much cheaper then that.. I didn't wait for it to get this cheap I was going to get it on release day but I got distracted with other games. In my opinion its worth double the amount I paid for it..its the best Turn Based RPG I've played since FF7.

I was going to say Caspian, but I picked it up anyway. Maybe Kane and Lynch, or Blood Money. Their cheap in comparison, but I still don't want to spend that much on 'em.

Im waiting for Dark sector to come down a lil bit. I rented it and thought it was a pretty cool game.

i hope you really like hitman(i hate it) it takes 4 playthroughs to get the full 1000. im waiting for lost odyssey and burnout paradise to drop in price. those games are way too long to rent and finish 100%

I'm waiting for Burnout Paradise to come down to 30 quid. It was 44.99 at game the other day what a joke eh. Also GoW that was 30 quid in GAME and it's pratically a launch game.

"Tenchu Z" for less than 19.99.

I can get it in a 2 for 30.00 but there's nothing worth getting with it at 2 for 30.00.

As of right now Burnout Paradise is probably the only game I'm really waiting for a price drop. Most games I usually just go ahead and get on ebay since they are much cheaper then buying in stores for the games that cost $30+ in stores.

The god Father, was $110 in my local gaming store, and everyones saying to me that its not very good. But movies are sweet so hope the game is to.

Same here. Although I want it to drop to a nice 2 for 20 in Gamestation!
It will eventually.

I also want Rock Band to drop - by about 100!!! :p

Oh and KENMACK39, I thought the Godfather was a really good game, and I'm not even particularly a fan of the movies!

Is that right? The game was $110?

I always thought the games were cheaper in the USA, but reading some posts here kinda proved me wrong on some points, Gears of war went down from 60 to 30 euro`s some time ago here, it still was full price too long imo as well by the way, skate came in at 40 euro`s and orange box as well i think. i live in the Netherlands by the way.
also, Godfather at $110 must be a typo coz thats bargain bin material here.
Ontopic, i`m waiting for Call of duty 4 to drop from its 60 euro lauch price
they just got the GotY version in and i figured because of that they`d make the original cheaper but instead they made the GotY 10 euro`s more expensive :confused:

I'm here in canada, and i'm so fortunate that my local video game store struck a deal with me, walk into a mom and pop video store that rents 360 games, and do what i did, told them "ill give you guys 20$ a month if i can rent as many games as i want a month, but only 1 at a time" and done and done, for 20$ a month i can get any game for as long as i want, lots of video stores will do this.

absolutely waiting on a rock band price drop. yeah i know, it just got released over here in europe some days ago, but the price is totally ridiculous. (i know that this has been stated over and over.)

but fact is, for as long as there is no rapid price drop, i will not get this and i would really like to.

Exactly, I've been wanting to pick it up again to finish the mp achievements but I'm not paying that much for it. Shoulda never traded it in :mad:

I think the only one im waiting on is orange box, i loved Half life 2 but not 40 loved it.

Games doing a deal at the mo tho u can get Halo 3 for like 15 which is abit of comedown from its original rrp.

Synister man you cant complain about GOWs its 40 becuase the game is supreme of all games and thus the "Epic" pricing follows suit lol.

Trust me, I'll be able to get it for $10 easily. Blue Dragon was $10 at Target just a couple of weeks back. Target/Walmart really go all out on their clearances when they want to get rid of their games. I'm predicting Lost Odyssey will hit $10-$15 by Sept.

I'd say pretty much any sports game, especially from the big 4 (NFL, MLB, NBA, NHL). It seems that Tiger and Fifa's hold their value a bit more.

I like to wait on pretty much any single player game that takes some time to conquer. If it looks quick and easy I'll just rent it.

I'm definitely with you on the single player games. It's just pointless to spend $60 for a single player game knowing you can play it later for (usually) $40 cheaper.

Unless you really want to play the game, I don't see a reason to buy it at full price.

Everything ;)

Brothers in Arms 3 - Hells Highway (When it comes out)

Viking - Rent it and loved it :)

I mainly now look at the 2 for 20's or 2 for 30's these days, the price for having kids :)

According to the lowest prices I could find on pricegrabber:

The Simpsons (another $10 lower)
Kingdom under Fire (another $20 lower)
Dark Sector (a LOT lower)
Devil may cry 4 (whenever it hits $20, no rush)
Bully (19.99-24.99)
Mass Effect (another $20 if it will ever go down)
Viking (a lot lower although, I'd really like to pick this one up anyway)
Lost Oddysey (haven't decided)

I'm waiting for the Oblivion with all the expansions on it to drop. And I know it'll be awhile but GTA IV too.

I'm gonna wait for Guitar Hero: Aerosmith's price to drop because i really dont think its worth the cash.

I'm waiting for Guitar Hero II to drop in price. I don't have a Guitar Hero game yet but I want to start out with the earliest 360 game, GHII. GHII and GHIII are the same price new and used because those guys are money grabbing a-holes lol.

Of course I've heard people try to get me to get GHIII instead of GHII because supposedly the music selection is better but I like to play/100% the oldest games first. I won't get PGR 4 till I complete PGR 3, which I'm not too far from doing. Won't get Burnout Paradise till I complete Revenge, etc.

I was in Wal-Mart the other day and notice that Gears is still 60 bones. It's a great game, I'll give it that, but it's older than Moses. It needs to at least drop to 30.

I just got Kingdom Under Fire: Circle Of Doom a few days ago for 25. About a week before that it was 45.

I'm waiting for Naruto:Rise Of A Ninja to drop now...
