I'm surprised DKCR is dropping so soon. Everyone needs to experience that game.
You mean, "I'm surprised that a Nintendo 1st Party title is dropping so soon." It's been a year and half since that game came out. Any other game on any other platform would have done this long ago. We all know that Nintendo hates dropping the price on their games. Look at Uncharted 2, which sold just as well or about the same as DKCR (around 5 Million). That's going for about $20 now, it's one of Sony's Selects or whatever. I just looked it up on Amazon, DKCR is going for $47 right now. Which means that at a large discount retailer like Amazon, that game has only dropped $2 from the list price.
Hell, just to pour salt on the wound, I'll also mention that the current price that Gamestop is selling DKCR used is $45. USED. For the same amount of money, you can buy NEW copies of Halo ODST and Halo Reach off of Amazon, and have money left over for a burrito at Chipotle.
