New game prices drop pretty drastically shortly after release these days.
That depends on publisher and game. For instance, skyrim is still listing for $60 (although its had a few 50% off sales, it still took quite a while from release to do so).

I still thought it was pretty cool of Bethesda to discount it by 40% at the Steam Christmas Sale last year when it had just come out, they could've easily kept it at $60. In the case of Skyrim I think demand is just that nuts, they are selling so many at $60 that there is no incentive to lower it. Bethesda seems to lower other titles prices pretty reasonably.

EA is a publisher who tries to keep game prices high though and the hilarious thing is that they do it at the low end quite often. I remember seeing ME1 for $20 on Origin awhile back and thinking WTF. I remember an interview where they claimed that sales devalue game IP which I think is a total crock.
