    Maybe this is a sign of the times, but I rarely see any more sales on release day games from Frys. In the past it was quite frequent to save $5 on xbox 360 games, or up to $10 on pc games. They appear to be still doing this for DVDS/Blu-Rays, which makes this policy interesting.

    I noticed this, too, but I don't think it's just Frys. Microcenter used to have some of the best release day sales (at least on PC games), but I haven't seen any for quite some time.
    Bummer for them I guess because a good release day sale is pretty much the only thing that keeps me from buying a game on Steam.

    Pre-order discounts from online services probably is the reason. A bird in hand...

    Yep, amazon usually lists their console games for like 56.99 prior ro release day, plus their 10$ credits help in the future.
