I was at walmart earlier to and I saw this in their used game section. Now for anyone who doesn't remember this game was four dollars at Burger King when it first came out.

Ugh, I don't like to see this. It's just them selling a Burger King promotional game at a high price to try and fool people into thinking it's a full game and paying too much for it.

Even at Gamespot this charges for about a dollar or two. This is awful.

   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.

@Protoroll: Why don't you say something to the management, rather than complaining on the internet?  Do something about it if it bothers you so much.
#29 Posted by xMP44x (2193 posts) -

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.

I really hope this becomes a heated argument about political ideologies, because that will be hilarious.  Seedofpower, make it happen!

Toys R Us was selling Sneak King for $2.

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.

Wow, I got this for 50 cents at a gamestop once. With the change from my lunch. 

#38 Posted by CitizenKane (10501 posts) -

I didn't even know they were still selling this game.

#39 Posted by ArchScabby (5809 posts) -

Look man just because you can't enjoy a masterpiece when it comes around doesn't mean no one else can.

They have a used game section now and they just lump everything together.

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.

I laughed when I played it. 
#43 Posted by Protoroll (345 posts) -
@christ0phe: Even if they would listen to me it was the graveyard shift and all the workers where worried about was restocking the shelf for the Christmas rush.

@ryanwho:   I said very little and you're imagining a whole conversation.  I'll let you keep talking to yourself, since that's all you're doing.

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.

#46 Posted by ch13696 (4582 posts) -

Wow just as bad as Gamestop... 
 

#47 Posted by natetodamax (19169 posts) -

Wow, that's pathetic. That's about $30 too much.

#48 Posted by cstrang (2381 posts) -

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?

#49 Posted by Protoroll (345 posts) -
@cstrang: $4 actually, its just so sad.
