and do you ever think the price will go down ?

i do not care what brand it is as long as it not more then $89

i would like to get a Turntable/Record player for around $50 but at this price i guess i would be looking at a second hand one :(

You maybe able to pick up a cheap second hand mini system with a record player, as many will be unused. The automatic ones tend to break or seize up over time.

Cheap turntables are almost always completely crap.
Save your cash, grab something worth your while...

Spend the same amount on a second hand turntable from Trademe etc.  I picked up a 1980's Rega Planar for about $260 and it's beautiful. 

Do a bit of research on the tables you find for sale, before you buy.  Just remember shipping is pretty hard on them - especially complicated auto-return models.  The beauty of the Planar is that is has none of this. 

You will really notice the difference.  Also, clean up those records.

Edit: picture is example only.
Edit: Whoops, just saw your price range.  Dunnersfella said it right, if you want to listen to vinyl you gotta spend a couple hundred to get the benefits.
