[Zellers] Resident Evil 5 $59.99 at Zellers, FarCry2 29.99, some other decent deals

Resident Evil 5 is listed at $59.99 (coming soon). Also they have Halo Wars for $59.99. EB, FS, and BB are all selling these for $69.99. Maybe EB and other stores will lower the price upon release like they did with SFIV. There are also other decent deals, like Far Cry 2 for 29.99.

Still, if Zellers of all people can sell at that price, why don't other retailers like BS, FS, and EB set the same price?

FS/BB have been selling huge games (and especially games with hardware) with a $10 premium over all other retailers...Rock Band, GH, Wii Fit, etc, have all been without fail more expensive at FS. They say it's the economy, but why isn't it National? It's just a gouge...

In the flyer it's $59.99 for the 360 version, let me guess... it'll be $69.99 for the PS3 lol.

If you think back more than a couple years ago, games in Canada were inevitably priced $10-15 more than the customary US$60 MSRP to account for our traditionally weaker dollar. Then our dollar spiked and everyone started screaming for price parity, and we got it- games sold for $60 on both sides of the border. Then our dollar starting tanking again, but because of the economy, retailers said they would hold off increasing prices until after the 2008 holiday rush. Well, it's March 2009, and retailers aren't biting the bullet anymore, so we're back to a $10 premium. That being said, if Amazon can still charge $59.99 for new releases, offer a 10% pre-order discount, AND throw in free shipping, there's no reason why the big box retailers can't as well. IMO they're simply riding the new release hype and gouging us, which is why I don't buy video games there. Amazon FTW!

Well Amazon doesn't need a store-front with rent, and also doesn't need to hire a buncha generally totally un-knowledgable employees =P

Yeah I got RE5 off amazon for 49 after tax!!

Long live the 10$ coupon!!

too bad I was too lazy to preorder it the $10 amazon coupon when it was still up. 53.99 with free shipping still beats this deal.

yea, but in terms of retail stores this deal is the best i've seen (however most Zellers never seem to have new releases) and a lot of people don't really shop online or on amazon.
