I think this may have something to do with Game and Gamestation (the 2 main video game sellers on the high street) selling the game for half its RRP (£22.49) for about 2 - 3 weeks leading up to christmas. Anyone wanting the game would have been mad to turn that price down (Personally i'll wait for the GOTY edition)
