@pw2566ch:

if you don't want to pay as much for a game, just wait a bit after launch. unless it's a game i have to have, i always wait for a good deal, and i always get a good deal. I boght mass effect 2 a couple months after release for about £15, in fact most games i buy are for around that price, unless i can't wait for it. This way, i get a new game, don't have to risk some piece of shit scratched copy, and all my money goes to the developer. Used games are usually a rip off anyway. I'm cool with people selling their games on ebay or whatever, but trading in a game for £5 only for them to turn round to sell it to someone else for £25 is total bullshit

I think the reason why people aren't noticing this is because of the incentives they give people for trade-ins. For example, get an extra 50% trade in credit towards MW3 or something like that. Of course it's still not the best because if you were to trade in saaaaaaay... Assassin's Creed Brotherhood you would probably get $10 credit for it. Throw in the 50% and that's only getting you $5 more. So really not an advantage, but people aren't seeing that.

Fortunately fore me, I feed off those idiots. I understand that the new games will be cheaper later on, but the best part is that once a new game becomes cheaper, so does the used version. So there's no point in me buying the new copy. The only thing I actually do wait on is Steam. I know there will be sales and I always wait for the right time.

Good. Give your money to DICE, not gamestop. Paying them's not going to make games better

Exactly this.

But they already got their money. *Sigh*... I'm lost. What exactly are we arguing about?

I wouldn't worry about it. People are mad because Gamestop made over $3 billion one year. I mean everyone has to realize that not everyone can afford a new game. They look for the cheap way possible like I do. Go onto Craigslist and you'll see people selling all kinds of new games anywhere between $40-50. I'm dead serious. I like my games as cheap as possible.

Yeah, I actually agree. I've always been getting my games really cheap. In this kind of economy what else are you going to do? Also why Steam has a lot of popularity. Because of their deals. And if it wasn't for people trying to get rid of their games, then I wouldn't be playing any video games.

As outrageous as it might be EA is not making people pay at gunpoint, if people are retarded enough to buy that stuff I just cannot blame EA for doing it. I guarantee you that as soon as people stop paying for that crap they will stop doing it.

That argument is pretty lazy. The thing is, the people who do it benefit, but the people who don't want to buy in to that shit are punished for it. The people that are stupid enough to buy that stuff have an effect on the people who chose not to.

This I agree with. It's just like if EA were to sell a weapon on Battlefield that has better stats than all the other weapons in the game.What sickens me the most is that people are actually falling for this. Once other companies find out that EA is making money off of this, they'll be doing the same. Leading to the end of multiplayer gaming.

i started buying digital psp games i dont own last week for the vita and i noticed there is no metal gear acid 1 or 2 and no xmen legends 2, so if they dont do somthing with these umds i will be fairly annoyed

The best way to get those games onto your PSP digitally is to put on a CFW then rip the games.

if it's on the disk, and i buy the disk, then i should have access to it. period. if they want to restrict then just make it $10 DLC. how about they make their beef with used game sales companies rather than with customers. buttholes.

Couldn't have said it better myself.

You should just have them replace the motherboard. The type of motherboard that will fit your CPU. It'll be cheap for them, you get a new motherboard, and no one leaves unhappy.
