I don’t think I have seen another Game of the Year contender in 2010 lose it’s value as fast as Mass Effect 2 has. The game is quite possibly leading the pack for GOTY prospects, yet, the game has quickly hit under $20 in several online retailer stores. The funny thing about this, is that the PS3 version of the game, is listed at $59.96 with the additional content. Mass Effect 2 has sold over 2 million copies world wide on the Xbox 360, did it max out in sales?
Regardless of the of financial state of Mass Effect 2, gamers are benefiting from these low prices. Amazon currently has Mass Effect 2 Listed for only $17.96, seriously that is the deal of the year.
It’s just funny to see a game that good, drop in price so soon. Take Uncharted 2 for example, the game is finally getting a GOTY edition for $49.99 on October 12–over a year after it’s release, and Mass Effect 2 has only been out 6 months and can be found for under $18? It seems as if there is no effort what so ever from the publisher to throw in a little something extra with the game, like Mass Effect 1 perhaps, or the additional DLC for maybe $49.99. It simply feels like they have given up on this triple A title.
