Check out Ebay.. you can get it brand new sealed for about 45 or get a used copy for under 40... You just have to be willing to go through the whole bidding process.

The game has been out for just a over a month (going by your post date) and is raking in sales, I wouldn't hold my breath for a price cut anytime soon...

I got mine on sale @ NewEgg shortly after it's release on sale for $49 and this week I got A new sealed copy for my Dad in a snipe on eBAY for 42.01+3.99 shipping. Just search froogle.com everyday and/or try eBAy. Happy hunting.

It is still a high-selling game. Just like MW2 is still 60 bucks new and 55 used at gamestop. (I know ebay and other places are cheaper) People are still paying $60 for it and they will keep it there for a while.

Ordered a few days ago on Amazon for 45. Glad I did too because the price is back to 60!

Good work Double-O-Seven! (Just had to say it!)

Like I said before it just takes patience and perseverance. Search Google/Products and check eBay regularly. I got my personal copy from Egghead for $50 (free shipping) shortly after release and I got my Dad's copy off of eBay a couple of weeks ago (new and sealed) for $46 (42.01 plus 3.99 Shipping. I sniped it with 2 seconds left to go by .01 hehehe)

BTW I'll be 35 in Oct and my Dad just turned 68 (I got RDR for his b-day) so all this crap about these games really being made for/aimed at kids is a joke. To quote a Rockstar's Lazlow Jones "If you're a parent and (you) buy one of our games for your child you're a terrible parent."

In fact straight from the ESA fact sheet - "The average game player is 35 years old and has been playing games for (at least) 12 years. The average age of the most frequent game purchaser is 39 years old."

Suck on that Jack Thompson! While your at it JT suck on DEEZ NUTS, you pathetic disbarred bastard!

All that said, I do let my 13 /yo nephew play RDR's co-op with me. I'm reluctant to let him play the SP story. Although he *is* very well adjusted and not the type of kid who would go gunning down Nuns or tying women to train tracks if he did play. However were he to play I would observe him just as we observe him when he uses the Internet. (However I wouldn't let him play GTA until he's 17/18) Parents just need to be parents for Cripes sake!
