    Glen, I appreciate the thread each week. I just wish there was some way to get the unadvertised price drops out to the group.
    For instance, I LOVE it when I walk into a Best Buy (like I did last night) and discover a title I had been sort of wanting to buy (JEDI Starfighter for Xbox) was now listed at a GREAT regular price ($19.99).
    I'd be very happy to know of ANY Xbox games that drop below $30.
    We all know the ads don't regularly have amazing deals. But, for the times they do, and for the follow-up posts pointing out other unexpected deals, it’s good to have a regular place to go. That place is THIS weekly thread.
    Thanks!!!
    Chris

    Jedi Starfighter is $20 at BB?
    hmm, I rented and beat it, but it's a great game.

    Thanks for putting up these threads. I've been lately getting back into gaming (and own an XBox) but since I've been away for a while I'm not sure about where all the deals are. Well this thread I have a feeling will become invaluable in the weeks to come. That Robotech deal sounds sweet, I'm heading to CC tomorrow to see if I can pick it up!

    Thanks for the voice all.

    I really hope that we can all contribute to this thread and keep posting every price drop that we all see.

    It's a community thread after all. Any help is appreciated.

    Thanks again,

    Glen

    Looks like the price breaks on Buffy, Terminator and a few others at EB are over.
    Hopefully they'll come up again.
    Circuit City
    Nascar Thunder 2003 (GC) - $19.99
    NCAA Football 2003 (GC) - $19.99
    These ones may not be at every CC store, but I saw a display of "Bargain" for the PS2.
    Here are a few of the games that I saw at the $19.99 price point.
    Kessen II
    Harvest Moon: Save the Homeland

    Rogue Leader (GC) is 19.99 at Best Buy. My local BB also still had the gamer gift cards with "$5 off video games 19.99 and up" coupons on the paper backing in the plastic gift card case. So you can get Rogue Leader for 14.99. Sick.

    Deathrow (XBOX) is $29.99 at EBgames.com. The product page still says $49.99, but shows the lower price when you add it to your cart.

    If you don't have this one yet, go get it!

    $49 is about the best price you can see this week.
    Playcentric has it for $42, but I've never purchased from them before.
    Looks like the Deathrow price drop might be a permanent one. Walmart is running it at $29.99 as well.
    Walmart is also running Blinx for $29.99 as well. I'm still waiting to see that one get below $20. [​IMG]
    Also, Circuit City has Moto GP for the Xbox down to $39 on their website, although they are listed as out of stock.
    Other items of note, the Phantasy Star Collection for the GBA has gone to $19.99 according to CC's website.
    Contra Advance is listed as $19.99 on CC's site as well. (out of stock at the moment)
    The Sega Smash Pack also comes in at $19.99 on their site as well.
