Yeah. EB tends to have some of the highest prices around. But they make up for it one way or another. It's weird too, sometimes just out of the blue, they'll have a sale on new release games (and I mean new release games).

I got MoH:AA off of the the first week it came out $20 off.

The cheapest retailer (not online that is) that I've found it Wal-mart. I don't think they will have JKO on the 29th. They will probably have it the following week. For example....EB had MOH for $49.99 when it came out and Wal-mart had it for $39.99. I realize that the price is lower now by EB but in the begining they were $10 more!

Best Buy always has sales the Sunday after the new games come out. They're usually $15 off, too.

Best place for New Games

My brother and I tried to get Aliens Vs. Predator 2 for a friend of ours around Christmas. Sam's Club had it for about $41.99 (US) which was cheaper than anywhere else...
Then a few days later, we saw it for $35.99 (US) at K-Mart. We found K-Mart had excellent prices on quite a few things. Lava Lamps, one of which for abovementioned brother, and several DVD's. (Monty Python's Quest for the Holy Grail)

Of course, That was before they went bankrupt. Oh well. I'm just gonna watch for it at a place nearby.

Thumbs down Wow....

Jedi Outcast must be really hard to get in New Zealand....hence the outrageous prices...

Why don't u go to Game Zone
That is the only place I buy games from now, and it comes with a T-shirt and it has free delivery nationwide for Jedi OutCast and all pre-orders I think, and depending on the situation if u go in there u can get a discount if u charm them, (or if they're to lazy to go and get some change in coins liek whta happened to me once)

Ugh, Gamesmarket there doesn't mention anything about the Tin Edition coming with DF and JK, only a poster and t-shirt as the Harvey Norman guy told me.

I work at EB, we are the cheapest retailer for games. the reason, we price match any retailer selling games or DVDs, not web distributers though.

Dont know about EBs outside the states, but all state-side EBs should price match, Wal-Mart, Babbages, BestBuy, Circuit City, CompUSA, anyone.

one catch, that Store has to have the item in stock
