Re: Is this Bait and Switch?
The practice is not "bait and switch," but arguably it is a violation of the New Jersey consumer fraud law anyway. However, unless you have paid much more than the $50 price for the game, you damages are not high enough to make the matter worth pursuing even on your own. If you feel angry enough about it, you should write to the Attorney General of New Jersey and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission. They might be able to discourage the practice so that no one else is deceived.
