Checkpoint: $80 MSRP Edition

I think this is the first time the $79.99 MSRP is hurting a game in Canada. Overwatch, which by all accounts a pre-release hit, isn’t even in the top 20 on Amazon.ca. It’s in the top 5 on Amazon.com. I suspect everyone is feeling the sting of the $80 price tag for a multiplayer only shooter — I know I am. I really want the title but $79.99 is too much for any title in my book.

I was going to flag BattleBorn’s rapid drop to $59.99 as a response to the tepid response in Canada but it looks like 2K slashed prices in the U.S as well.

With Uncharted 4 done, it’s quickly off to Odin Sphere: Leifthrasir which I’m finding renewed appreciation for. As for the Uncharted 4 review? I’m almost done with it as well and hope to have it up for Wednesday.
