    Amazon.com and EBgames.com has Buffy the Vampire Slayer for $29.99. If you don't already have this game, I would easily pick it up for this price. IMHO, it was worth the $49.99 price tag that it formerly had.

    It can't have sold that badly, it's gotten great reviews and it's a great game

    Maybe they overstocked expecting it to be a huge mega-hit. I held off on buying this when I heard it wasn't 16:9, but at that price I'll go ahead and pick up a copy.

    Chris,

    I believe this price can be had at the actual EB stores as well.

    I ordered this yesterday when I saw that price. Their shipping is pricey at EB Games, I noticed. $5 for ground shipping.

    I'm looking forward to the game.

    Definite pick up. I played for the first time at darius's house the other night and thought it was awesome. Going to get it now.

    And by the end of September, it's allegedly sold a total of 42k according to the figures doing the rounds.

    Of course, those aren't 100% of the market.

    I know jack squat about videogame sales figures, but 42k seems a little low, no? Anyone know on average how many units a game has to move in order to break even?

    Maybe the game would have sold more if they...I don't know...advertised it????

    Wow, it's not often that a license works against a game. But I can understand people being turned off of the game if they aren't fans of the show--the remark that the game would probably have done better if it was called Slayer is dead on, IMO.

    I wonder if the upcoming Dark Angel will suffer the same fate?

    The game is advertised almost every day during the FX broadcast. $29.99 bucks is a steal. It's the 2nd best Xbox game, IMO.
