    lol, funny thing is that when the games aren't selling they lower them to about 39.99 here after like 2 weeks. :bowdown:

    I checked out Best Buy, Futureshop, etc.

    Most games are at 59.99. COD MF2 is $60. SO why is Demon's Souls $70? ...

    Well they could easily sell much more if they lowered the price point. I know the marginal revenue is not the highest at $70!

    I think the publisher, Atlus, really didn't expect the game to sell as well as it is selling. I read that they actually had to print more copies of the game for the holiday shopping season due to high demand. The game is also pretty rare (I barely ever see it in a GameStop or BestBuy) and these factors probably keep it so high. I'm Canada croo too and I paid $69... and honestly, it's one of the rare games that is worth every penny.

    I'm leaning towards shelling out the extra money for this. I haven't done this for a game in a longggg time.

    I can't decide whether to get Demon's Souls or Borderlands when I get my next paycheck. I'm mainly interested in Demon's Souls because of the length and difficulty but Borderlands just looks like the type of game I've always wanted to play, too bad both are a rip-off. I hate paying more than $30 for any game.

    Nevermind just found it for $56.99 at Newegg with free shipping, best price I found so far for this game new. Now I just hope it won't go up by the time I get paid. :x:

    Wow

    So I decided that I will pay $78 after tax for it... what do you know, so many other people thought the same.

    IT'S ALL FREAKING SOLD OUT. I checked:

    - 2 best buys
    - 2 futureshops
    - a superstore
    - 2 eb games
    - toys r us
    - rogers video... yes even rogers


    Fuckkkk
