Still $29.99 @ BestBuy when I went in today. Should drop by Sunday at the latest, though.

If you pre-ordered AOD: Boomstick from BB (as I did), this would be perfect for using that $10 coupon they're sending out Friday.

Morrowind for $9.99. Hmmmm....

Ditto on $29.99 at BB in Arlington, TX last night. I had a printout of the article with me, and manager said they wouldn't be dropping their price "anytime soon".

Great game, but my recommendation for those who have the rig to run it is to buy the PC version. There is already one expansion pack, and another on the way. Both expansion sets are PC-only products. Not to mention the countless user-made mods.

Further proof that BB sales drones and their managers know nothing -

"...later this month" it says. There's even a pic of the new packaging -

Not trying to defend BB or anything, but the article did say later this month.

I agree. Not to mention there's a flaw with the save games on the XBox. The longer you play the game, the larger your save file gets. At a certain point, wonky things tend to start happening. You get dirty disc errors, the game locks up every time you go near a certain area of the map, etc.

It sucks, but there's no way to patch a console game like that. I had the XBox version, and I sold it. Using the editor, I recreated my XBox save game file within an hour. Plus, it's so much more pretty than on the XBox, and using a mouse is great.
