Actually, the new MSRP for the console is now $49.99. It wasn't really a Thanksgiving sale although it sure seemed to be the case with many stores promoting it as such. So people bought them up like candy and now many stores no longer have any. Anyway, stores *should* have them at this price unless they haven't updated their prices yet.
The major players (BestBuy, ToysRUs, Circuit City, etc) should have them at this price. The key is finding one with some in stock. I can see some of the smaller stores keeping the price high since it's sort of a hard to find item now and no longer produced.

The Best Buy near me has a big display near the front. That's where I picked mine up this week.
I went to Media Play, but all they had was the Sports Bundle for $70.

www.ebgames.com has it but they are listing it for $60.

I got my (Oct 2k build) Dreamcast at Toys R Us for 50. Both TRUs I went to were out of controllers, and memory, but both of them had DC units. With a gift card I had, I only paid 13 bucks for mine.

SamGoody.com now has them for 49.99. They recently (finally) lowered it from 79.99. There's a couple coupons out there you can use (do a quick scan on the DVD Bargains forum); one for 5 off 30 and another for 10 off 50. Their coupons always apply to total before shipping so to use the 10, you need to add another item. Now for ~$60, you get a console and an extra controller or vmu

Spiff...Depending on which college town you're in, you might still be able to find one. I'm in Gainesville, FL, and my BB has been keeping most of their stock in the back. Trying asking one of the reps, they should be able to pull one for you from the back. They've been doing the same thing with their X-Boxes. Seems like they are creating their own market by limiting the number of units on the shelf to about 2 a piece. So that could be the situation at your store. They recently put a new store in my mall, 3 letters, would like to say FTY. Or TFY. Something like that - and NO, it's not Fry's. They have the dreamcast there for 49.99. You might want to check out that store too. Happy Hunting!

Probably an FYE (For Your Entertainment), they seem to have consolidated all their different branches into one name(RecordTown, The Wall, there could be more).
