I was going to call it a price drop but it's not been indicated as such yet. Still, almost every retailer that stocks games up here seems to be taking part (Future Shop, Best Buy, Walmart, EB Games, etc) so it's easy to find something if you're so inclined. $20 -Lumines -Hot Shots Golf -Rayman Origins -Mortal Kombat -Asphalt -Dungeon Hunter -Resistance $30 -Gravity Rush -MGS HD Collection -Virtua Tennis Any and all Future Shop coupons will also stack. I'd sooner have a game like Lumines digital, but I also can't argue for $10 after coupon (from a Kingdom Hearts 3D glitch).

Stopped by my local Future Shop today and they had Asphalt Injection for $14.99.

I paid $20 a while back and thought that was a good deal - not a great game but still pretty fun.

You might be thinking Zellers, having been bought out by Target.

I would buy Lumines yesterday if it were 20 dollars here in the US.

Not quite - Target bought out the leases to some Zellers stores, the remaining stores will close, I believe early next year.

The one in my area is already liquidating their entire store (10% off ROFL) and closing.

Yeah one of the Zellers here in Victoria started its closing sale a couple of weeks ago...I believe it's not going to become a Target. Another one is, however, and they're either coming to the end of their clearance or have already shuttered the store. I should go see what sort of dregs are left if it is still open. And yeah, the initial sales are pathetic. 10% off games and gaming stuff is useless especially when their games are all still priced at MSRP and can be found significantly cheaper elsewhere. It's only the consoles that are a decent deal at that point, and even then it's a mixed bag as they have nothing new - I don't think any Zellers store got Vitas in stock as they probably knew they were going to close at that point.

Does anyone else have issues finding Vita games in Canada? Stores have like 1 copy of a game if they even have it and some games (Supremacy MMA, Ben 10, Blazblue, Fifa) I have never even seen.

Stores aren't going to reorder less popular games like those after the release, and Fifa is probably flying off the shelf too fast.

I wasn't able to get Rayman Origins at Future Shop when they had a sale last month, and I lost my rain check receipt, so it's good if I can find it at EB Games or another store.
