    Great deal until 08/03 at EB-Buy Eternal Darkness and receive a $20 gift voucher in the mail. I bought the game yesterday getting them to match the $14.99 price at Gamestop. Now I await my $20 gift voucher. There are other gift voucher deals to be had on other games as well but this one seems to be the best.

    Nope, it's one of those accessory starter kits. I don't think you'll ever see the XBL starter kit drop in price (in fact I think it's going to rise in the fall).

    Target is great for the ridiculous clearance prices. Since they often hire lazy employees, games usually get discounted in the computer several times before someone actually marks the price.

    I remember back during the period when Time Crisis 2 was out of print and tough to find, I got 2 gun/game sets at target for $14 each.......and sold them on ebay for around $100 each.

    Soul Reaver 2 has dropped to $15 at EB. I'm still kicking myself for not having picked that up at $9.99 at Amazon. Oh, well.
