I wish New Super Mario Bros Wii would get a discount. It's been out for 3 years and it hasn't dropped in price at all.

Yeah, Nintendo has this habit of not making the price points for exclusives budge even an inch.

I remember Super Smash Bros. Melee, LoZ: Wind Waker and Mario Kart Double Dash still being full price at most retailers a few years after each one came out.

I grabbed Sleeping Dogs from GMG during the Winter Sale. I am -crazy- impressed by it. I've almost finished the game... and even though it's obviously rushed, it's still so fun.

Finally: a GTA-style game with really fun combat, and a great protagonist!

I honestly cannot conceive of Rockstar making a better GTA game than Sleeping Dogs.

I got it too for Black Friday... probably less than half way done, but it is a good game (just have too many games to play). It reminds me of a cross between GTA and Yakuza, and that's a pretty damn cool combination.

There's some okay deals at Best Buy, but most of those sale prices are everyday prices at Amazon.

That reminds me, I still have to finish Yakuza 3 and Kenzan. And start 4.

But, yeah, it's a great mash-up of Yakuza and GTA. Love the combat. I've heard it compared to the Batman games, but honestly I find the combat a lot more engaging than in those. Shame you can't use the environment as much as in Yakuza, or tools.

I'm -really- hoping there's a sequel. Sleeping Dogs had great driving mechanics, great narrative, great visuals, great melee mechanics, and even that parkour-style stuff like in Aassassin's Creed, albeit to a limited degree. Given all the production difficulties the game faced, that these elements are all so well implemented speaks volumes of the developer's skill.

If they have the time and money to do a sequel fully, on their own terms... wow. I just can't even imagine how great it could be. Sleeping Dogs easily has the most potential of any new IP I've played this generation.

in the case of borderlands 2 its better to wait till september when the GOTY version comes out then to get it now and wen u buy the dlc packs you spent more than what the GOTY version is worth.

@ gninja

You could buy it now and find someone with the dlc disk to install later or get it off the internet as they are not console locked. Thats what i did with Fallout 3, New Vegas, and Borderlands DLC.

I got Borderlands 2 on black friday for $25. I'll wait for Sleeping Dogs to hit $20. Am a cheap bastard.
