I went to the live show in 2006 on our honeymoon. It was a good time for sure. I saw the cliff hanger take a dive too. I think everyone was rooting against the guy playing.

There's also a DS version of this game...I think also for PS2 there is one.

The best deal for my money is the iphone app which is essentially the same game as any other version but for just $2.99.

I went to the Live Show in Vegas and had a great time. Also saw the Cliff Hangar go flying, which was awesome! Saw Plinko. And I saw the person spin $1 on the wheel.

When I was about 15, my parents and I flew out to LA and they got tickets for the show (this would have been in the mid-80's). I stayed at the resort and played around while they went to the show (noone under 18 I guess, something like that).

Anyway, my Mom got on the show and got to play that game. She won! She spun 10 cents, THEN $1 on the wheel though, and kissed Bob. lol

I remember watching it on CBS about 3 months later when it aired, pretty surreal to see someone you know up there, especially your Mother kissing Bob Barker.

I have fun with it. There's a couple really cool games. A couple stupid ones. But overall I think its cheaper than other games, so its worth the pickup. It may wear off quickly, but its one of those games you can come back to after a little bit and still have a blast.

I would think it would get stale without DLC for new products and prizes for the games. If they wanted to be smart about it, they could probably offer it for free by offering the companies who produce the products free advertising or something. I didn't think this game had an option like that. Wouldn't you see the same products and know the prices for the pricing games after awhile?

I guess this is a bump. My wife got a wii for herself last weekend. Friends of ours came over that just got a wii and picked up this game on the way over. We played a few rounds and it was a blast!

My wife and I had tix to the price is right when we went on vacation to Cali. We got there and eventhough you have tix you arent guaranteed in and we didn't get in. She was really bummed about it.

However since then we have been to the price is right in Vegas two different times however the game changed. The first time, you got a controller and you had to buzz in on pricing games to win a spot to play in the actual game. The second time, they had stopped that and just did randon seat callings.
