    I know Links 2004 has been $29 at Target for almost a month now.
    With its lack of courses and them charging users to get new courses, it is a no sale for me even at that price.

    As a fellow Canuck the best route for getting games at a decent price for me has always been Ebay. You have to be patient but you can get new games for 50 - 60% of the current retail price here.

    If anyone has found a better alternative I'd love for them to chime in.

    Jeremy, check at GameStop (aka babbages, software etc..., funcoland, planetX) if you have one in the area. It's advertised in the new store flyer that went up for Monday, and as such should be priced accordingly in all stores.

    lou i've actually even been half-assed looking on ebay for links and never saw a good deal.
    I think ebgames had it marked down in an advertisement or something, i know it's cheap on their website. wonder how cheap it'll be at canadian retailers.

    Wild. Those are pretty new (and for the most part popular) titles to see a drop so early. I've heard so many great things about Top Spin I may have to take advantage of this. I've noticed more titles coming down after the "embarassment of riches" late last year. Picked up Armed and Dangerours this week for C$29.99. Metal Arms has dropped to C$39.99 so that's another I need to snag. Now these.

    Mark - it's not easy for newer games and definitely requires patience. I was able to get a new copy of Links2004 for $47 Cdn - including shipping.

    Much better than the horrendous ~ $80 you end paying here when you tack on GST & PST!

    Hey Mark - Future Shop has Links2004 listed at 39.99 as well as Top Spin. All the XSN titles are down.

    I got NFL Fever 2004 for $15 at my local Target last night. Since I think discounts are to some extent up to local store managers, YMMV.

    Once Armed & Dangerous hits below $30 I'd consider it.
