    What I mean to say is, the B&Ms don't seem to be carrying this title on their shelves anymore. I don't doubt that online there are copies to be found everywhere. But I am frequently in local stores that sell new games, and I haven't seen a new copy of Rogue Leader on the shelves in months (I am not exaggerating).

    Is there some kind of a B&M shortage? Has this game been taken out of circulation already? Just curious, because it's one of the 'must have' titles for the NGC and stores here aren't carrying it anymore.

    You should be able to find this for $30 at Electronics Boutique. I don't beleive any game has gone OOP for the GCN. Best Buy and such may just not stock games that aren't current. It doesn't seem that Best Buy even stocks every game for the system when they are current.

    Basically after a good game has been out for awhile, they no longer stock 15 copeis at once. 1 or 2 maybe. You've just hit a time where they're sold out

    Thanks for the info guys. I should have suspected those reasons, but it just seems strange that major B&M retailers, who are heavily pushing the next-gen systems, have been consistantly out of such a high-profile title.
    Jason, I have noticed the same lack of NGC titles at Best Buy. I was at my local BB just last weekend, and they were heavily pushing the Xbox with a 'if it doesn't work, just return it for a new one' special. But they had zero copies of Halo and had no idea when they were getting more.
    Then again, I know virtually nothing about how such stores work their mojo with various suppliers. Maybe I'm just getting tired of seeing a zillion copies of the less than stellar titles 'smashing drive' and 'universal studios tour' in the GNC sections and virtually nothing else.

    I have an unopened copy of RL. We tried to sell it at a garage sale, but we didn't, so its still unopened. PM me if you want it (or anyone does).

    There are about 10-15 RLs sitting at my local Best Buy. They have even been marked down to $39.99 (everyday price) [​IMG]
