I thikn that is my issue; I won't even touch a PS3 / XBOX 360 game without trying the demo first. I'm not willing to gamble $60 of my money on a game I may hate.

60$ Where ???

I think you mean 69.99$ here in QC, which is 70$... and then add taxes and all. BAM! 78.38 for one game...

I'll pass for now, unless you can find it somewhere at a good price SKY. Demo would be nice too.

That's really odd. Maybe they just hadn't updated the sticker on the rack.

I went looking for an extra PS3 controller and Little Big Planet. I ended up pretty steamed because Wal Mart doesn't seem to EVER have PS3 controllers in stock and LBP is somehow still retailing for damn-near $70.

I'm loving this game, its forced me to stop folding for a few hours each night but its worth it.

Its like spiderman on crack, he can't web sling but once you do a few upgrades he can glide which is pretty much just as good. and all his random powers are awsome.

Don't like that you can't kill certain creatures though. I feel that if I hit something with a rocket launcher enough it should die (expecially since the same creature later in the game you can kill)...
