Is there a common pricing scheme for new game releases? (Black Ops)

I'm contemplating if I should pre-order the game at $55 off amazon now or just wait a week or two to see if the price will drop. I'll be working more hours the day after Black Ops comes out so i won't be able to play it that much. Does the price for new games usually drop after a week or two? Or should I just pre-order and get a copy of it before it sells out?

MW2 was on sale ... um ... ONCE on Steam, and that was like 3 weeks ago. %25 off.

Price won't drop for at least a year on that title.

i'm a fullblown fag.
 
normally they dont drop for a year +

but I did see Dead Rising 2 on steam for almost 20 dollars less than the store price

that was really surprising to me , anyone know why they did that?


at walmart it was 59.99

on steam it was 39.99

because you're looking at console vs PC versions.

PC version is $20 cheaper than consoles

Activision doesnt like dropping the price on Call of Duty titles it seems.
So it probably won't drop for a long while.

most games now seem to drop price pretty quickly after they come out, except for Modern Warfare games, it took ages for COD4 to drop below $30, and I ton't think MW2 has dropped below $40 yet on sale.
