Hey, did anybody noticed that God of War III on Amazon.com changes prices very randomly. haha, I knew that they did that, but it's kind of funny to see God of War III go from 19.99 back up to 26.99. I wish that once they go down, they stay down and continue to get cheaper. :) Who's with me?
Yes, it's definitely very confusing. I saw God of War III along with Uncharted 2 GOTY and Killzone 2 drop down to $19.99, all of which I wanted. I'm still waiting to get a PS3 later this month, so I decided to hold back. Unfortunately, all of the prices have gone back up. I'm still waiting for them to drop down again. It's actually quite frustrating. The prices really should stay down, or at least Amazon should note how long the sale will last.
Prices are evaluated on a daily basis (sometimes multiple times a day) using competitor pricing and complicated algorithms. There is an interesting article at Michael Eisen's blog about how this works and how a book about flies was selling for almost $24,000,000.
