Apparently, GTA 3 for PS2 is being yanked off certain stores shelves and the next pressing of the game will have certain parts edited out. After hearing this, I decided to look around and pick one up. After exhausting most online resources, short of Ebay and Half.com, I started calling all my local retailers. Luckily, Toys R Us had one left. The guy I spoke with said they had over 100 copies not 3 days ago.
On Ebay it's already goign for over $60, and half.com's best price is $55. Whew... got lucky I guess!
