Hi Kelvin and welcome to the forum,
The important thing to understand about Drop-shipping is that it isn't Wholesale, which many people believe it to be and often refer to Drop-ship prices as Wholesale prices. Drop-ship prices in the vast, vast majority of cases won't come close to reflecting genuine Wholesale prices because you're not talking about the same risk = reward equation in play.
Wholesale requires a greater risk because you are buying in volume, no more cash outlay upfront. You are also taking risk that the market will hold and you can clear all of your stock at a decent margin to make the risk worthwhile taking and in so doing, gain the reward of a decent margin across your stock profile.
Drop-shipping is a supply model to eliminate most, if not all risk that exists with a Wholesale supply model by not needing to invest upfront cash in stock and so when you remove risk, you also remove a lot of the potential reward that goes with taking that risk.
So in most cases, Drop-ship prices are always going to be on the skinny side when stacking them up against Wholesale prices. Combine that with a very popular product like Video Games and that has the effect of compressing the margins even tighter because suppliers know they have a stream of people wanting to Drop-ship their products and can work on offering only skinny margins.
It's just how the business model works unfortunately and you will find that across the board. Sure, you may find someone a few cents cheaper, but doubtful you will find a huge breathtaking price gap between suppliers.
Now, in regards to the supplier you mentioned. Be advised that Albany was a member of our directory but was disqualified due to what SaleHoo considered to be an extremely sub-standard level of customer service to members following a review from the support team due to some issues raised by some SaleHoo members.
