    So, I called my local Kmart today, and they informed me that RE:R was $50, but I knew the price drop was in effect to $40. He told me apparently the price drop didn't go through for them. Wha...can they even do this legally? Or is Capcom leeching off small urban towns?

    I'll probly still be paying $50 for it, but it's quite bullshit imo...

    Ima also post some pics later showing that it truly is $50... for the nonbelievers

    You could always order online.

    They can charge $500 for it if they want to, its a recommended retail price (RRP) of $40 stores can sell it for anything they want,

    I could, but I'd more than likely be paying $7 for shipping (possibly)

    I wouldn't pay $50. Get it online cheaper. That's why pre-ordered. Got it with release date shipping (only cost me a buck)

    Newegg is one of the best and most trusted online electronic websites ever made for people in the US, I've spent over 10 grand over the past years on computer parts and other electronics, I normally get next day free shipping too.

    well, in any case it sucks you had to shell out on the original price, but then again, i personally think the game is worth the price tag. even though i'm still on the fence about buying it. will probably give in once the CPP bundle reaches our shores (the game is available in my area, but the CPP is yet to appear).

    just where in the states do you reside that your only choice of retail stores is a k-mart? the back water swamps of louisanna?

    I turn to Newegg for online game orders. Sometimes they'll have some pretty sweet deals, so check back often if there's another game you're looking for. It might just be on sale.

    The ONLY other store where I live that sells games in particular, is Wal-Mart, but the thing is, it's across the Canadian border, but the a-holes there charge $6 in and out, so I'd be shelling out the $50 anyway.

    Where I live sucks in particular because of how tech-retarded my community is, but it's almost a good thing because of my consideration of starting a computer repair business around here...
