Two more Xbox 360 games now $40?

Two more Xbox 360 games now $40?
Published by forahobby on Thursday, June 08, 2006

Online retailers mark down Condemned and Ridge Racer 6, but Sega says former game remains full price "as of today."

When it was revealed that $59.99 would be the standard third-party price point for Xbox 360 titles, many-a-gamer lamented. After all, the cost of truly entering the "HD Era," as Microsoft executive J Allard once called the dawn of high-definition gaming, was already plenty high. Besides the $399 a premium Xbox 360 would set you back, gamers would also have to shell out at least $500 for an HDTV. That's not even counting the cost of a subscription to Xbox Live and high-speed Internet service fees for online gaming.

Last week, 360 owners got some good news when a slew of 360 games' prices dropped to $39.99. Ubisoft cut King Kong's cost, THQ lowered the price of The Outfit, and Electronic Arts discounted (deep breath) Burnout Revenge, Madden NFL 06, NBA Live 06, FIFA Soccer 06: Road to FIFA World Cup, and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 06. They joined a growing catalog of games already priced at $40, such as the just-released Rockstar Games Presents Table Tennis.

Today came word that two more 360 games would soon bear a smaller sticker price. The online stories for GameStop, EBgames, Amazon, and Best Buy all list Sega's Condemned: Criminal Origins and Namco's Ridge Racer 6 for $39.99.

But while Namco had not returned requests for comment as of press time, Sega did--to deny any price drop had taken place. "We are still at 59.99 for Condemned as of today," a rep told GameSpot. "Sega doesnít have any product selling at 39.99 for the Xbox 360 at this time."

Calls to several GameStop and EB Games locations added to the confusion. Clerks at both stores said that Ridge Racer 6 was indeed priced at 39.99 new, but that Condemned was priced at $49.99 new.
