Is this a common practice over there?
I went to look up their price on a game and this is the result I get.
Now while both of these prices seem a little high for this game,
One of them seems fucking retarded.
" No, it's definitely a misprint. Some jackass probably got mixed up. "I think it's probably real. I used to work at an EB Games and every morning you would print out new prices for any games that changed. Sometimes the price of a new game would drop, but the used copies wouldn't get updated for a day or two. I saw new games cheaper than used copies a couple of times.
That happens all the time. I was looking for some Gamecube game and it was like $35 used even though it was a greatest hits game. They also seem to have jacked up the price on Halo Wars since I bought it in January for like 15 or 20 bucks.
I actually went by Blockbuster today where they had a used copy of Super Street Fighter 4 on sale for $4.99 but Street Fighter 4 was on sale for $19.99. Needless to say it was blockbuster so the person working did not understand my confusion.
This usually happens when theres some kind of promotion where they discount the new price as an incentive to purchase that over used. On rare occasions this can bleed into the actual store pricing as well, but mostly its only for the online shops.
" I only buy new games at gamestop, and only for preorder bonuses. The used games are a ripoff but i have no problem buying new from them. "Why? I am opposed to supporting them at all because other game stores are so much better.
" @DystopiaX said:If there were a mom-and-pop around me, then yes. Since there isn't, I don't think Gamestop's new game policies are any worse than Best Buy's or Amazon's. You could say I'm still supporting Gamestop, but I'm not opposed to them getting the same margin for new games that other retail stores do."
