That is truly, truly incredible. Amazing how so much money can be charged for the game, really. When it was released only as a promotional tool, it should be sold as one as well - not as a full-priced game. Someone should try speaking to an employee about it. Even if it is a collector's item, it's definitely worth going to an employee or the manager and raising a concern. Maybe you'll get lucky and they'll sell it for a lower price. My local Asda (UK version of Walmart) has started stocking used games as well, which is pretty sweet. Some of them are fairly good value as well, but I've seen some absurd prices as well. For example, Fallout: New Vegas was pre-owned at £29.99 or so, and on the other side of the shelving unit it was sitting, brand new, for £20.
" @W0lfbl1tzers: I fucking love ballsrog so much man. "Best bit was when he first started leaving voice messages for the 1up oddcast. They were all careful and sympathetic to him thinking he was really a poor uneducated banger living in the ghetto and they only started to twig when he started putting on different voices and stuff. He had them cold for weeks.
Well he was kidding, first off. But also, jackass, China's run on a rudimentary free market system. They're not proof communism works, they're proof something between communism and capitalism doesn't fail. Do half a second of research before marching in on an obvious joke and getting your facts wrong. See the vender not wearing a uniform? Its a private business. Selling, not giving, icecream to a customer. Capitalism. Jackass.
" @Fascism:China, well known as a communist country( or a Democratic Dictatorship/ Socialist state if you like some softer definitions). That girl is buying ice cream, that man is selling it. Ignorant fool. "
" yeah, thats pretty disgusting alright i cant believe you shop at walmart, you fucking swine "My mom got off late from work and we had to go pick up the ingredients for Christmas dinner so we could get started preparing.
Retail chains are notoriously bad with used game prices or prices in general. Went to thre best buy stores a week ago & saw Bayonetta for the 360 at each in different prices. One had it used for $23.00, another had it new with the tag on the shelf somewhere around $40, the website & 3rd store had it at the right price for a new one at $20. For finding things used it's best to look around/online to keep idiot stores from ripping you off.
Ah... Ha... Ahaha... Hahahahahahahahahahahah. BAH HAHAHAHAHAHAH...
Are you fucking kidding me? $20 for that piece of trash would be unacceptable if it were NEW. I can't believe they're asking that for a pre-owned version. Wasn't that a game you could get if you sent in like $5 with proof-of-purchase of a kid's meal or something?
