well I wouldn't say 'unexpectedly'

A lot of good deals on this game (as well as most major titles this season) going on right now...

Doubt there is actually a physical shortage. Retailers just didn't anticipate it being a largely popular game and probably over-stocked on other games instead.

I still have alot of games I need to get after Im done with dark souls(im at the end and I want to play some of my new game + still AHHHHH) and had my fill of COD multiplayer geez.

I will be getting my copy soon enough. I bet there are plenty of copies around here since we have ALOT of old people and ALOT of places to buy games at.

Either way, I very happy that this game has done so well. Especially at a time when so many good games have recently come out and many of them are selling like crazy. Its great to see a bunch of people buying and supporting great games like this.

edit below-- heck yeah man, I loved morrowind, oblivion, Fallout 3 and New vegas so Im sure Ill love this one too. I think this looks like it could be even better than those games to me. Hearing you and all the other people talk about it makes me want it even more. I may have to go pick it up this weekend because it is getting hard to wait.
