No it isn't. Be happy if you can get any game below $30.

I am mainly mad about this is because they are almost the same game. why does one need to more than the other?and exclusives can be traded so both of them should be the same price. i mainly want black 2 why can't it be 17$.

I imagine Black 2 was more popular than White 2 for whatever reason (probably considered to be the primary or canonical game; Hell, look at the number of topics between the two boards), thus Walmart sees this and jacks the price up. Supply and demand and some such.

Honestly, I came into this thread expecting the price to be $60 still. I can recall seeing the Advance games at that range many years after their release. =

Don't know why you're complaining about a game with decent demand maintaining its original asking price while a game with significantly less demand is getting a price cut so they can clear up storage. I am grateful for you pointing this out though, wanted White 2 for PokeBank and now I can save a decent chunk of change on it.
