Discountoid: Ninja Gaiden 2 price-drop, Rock Band clearance, more cheap stuff!

Another week, another edition of Discountoid. This time around, Ninja Gaiden 2 is seeing a permanent $20 reduction at a few retailers.

Circuit City has put their Rock Band bundles on sale to make room for the new Rock Band 2 product, so this might be a good time for you to save a little cash on some instruments if you don't mind using the older models.

Ramping up for the holiday season, GameStop is doing one of their trade-in promotions this week where every two 360, PS3 or Wii games you give them nets you an additional $10 in store credit.

And, with Silent Hill: Homecoming releasing this week, there are a few giveaways with purchase. Best Buy will inflict the horrifying (for the wrong reasons) DVD of Silent Hill with a purchase. I'm much more interested in getting my hands on the Pyramid Head keychain that Circuit City has on offer.

Hit the jump to see all the deals we scrounged up for you this week.
