So on tuesday if you haven't pre ordered go check it out.. i think thats where i'm going at like 10am.  And i heard from someone else that they will be selling it for 40 bucks cause they have been doing that with other recent games and a store clerk also said they would sell it at that price.... cheers.

yeah what are you talking about. They buy them for like 10 bucks a copy and they buy like 400 of them and they know everyone is gonna be buying it and they know that people arent stoopid and theyre not gonna pay 49.99 for a game when they can pay 39.99 so they will get all bussiness. They will make way more money doing that than if they sold it for 49.99......BUT.......stores like circuit city and best buy usually make new games $39.99 for a week and then it goes up to $49.99 so buy it fast.

Actually, Sam Goody IS NOT selling it for 30 bucks.  I work for them and I can tell you what we do with ALL new releases:

We always ask if you want to reserve a new release, and in the case of games, there is a 10 dollar deposit.

When this game comes out it will be $49.99 minus your 10 dollar deposit, so you'll get it for $39.99...

How do you come up with 30 dollars?

he probably saw the $39.99 after the reserve price and though he saved his $10 of off that price

Best Buy, Media Play, Babbage's,  Circuit City all have pretty low profit on these games, Sony is the company that makes all the cash on ps2.  

 

All of the games(newer releases) cost the stores around $40.  Sony makes over 30% of their overall company wide profits on ps2 software.  The only reason stores would sell the game for $40 is to get you into the store buying other things.
