This just in- most games (even mmorpgs) have steep price decreases shortly after the first week, especially from online stores.
Really, the only games I have yet to see decrease in price are Star Ocean: the Last Hope international (PS3) and Trinity Universe (PS3). Might eventually cave in to the latter since its only 30 or 35..but the former is still 45 used at the lowest...
There's also the little thing that SE has 2 MMOs, one of which is 1 game+ 4 expansions+ 3 mini addons +I forget what else for 20 or 30 dollars, the other which is 1 new game for what used to be 40 or 50 MSRP.
If I was in charge of setting the MSRP at marketing, I would certainly have done the same thing in their position, especially since FFXIV is getting a lot of flak for trying to break the mold.
Edit..oddly enough, I checked prices on Star ocean TLH: International hoping for a decrease today, and my prays were answered! Its down to 30 on Amazon ^^ And it just dropped even lower (20 new) on gamestop! Holy Christmas specials, batman!
I've got to go...can't pass this up <.<
