You do realize that most retailers buy their games at 50% or lower, right? Amazon pays $25.00 for the game they sell to you at $50.00 - they can even get it cheaper based on volume purchases.

You have no idea how retail works, do you.

If they have overstock on the item, they can put it on sale. Plain and simple.

And it has NOTHING to do with Cryptic or Atari doomsayers and panty bunchers.

wait till they pay us to take the game because no one in their right mind would pay full price for a 40% complete game

I'm not going to look them all but thanks to someone posting about the Amazon sale today I was able to buy a copy of the just-released ME2 on sale for $36.00 at Amazon this morning.
