$19.99 New and $34.99 Used. Lolwut?
Why do people shop at Gamestop because I just purchased new copies of Persona 4 and Call of Duty WAW for a total of $40 which is how much 1 of those games cost at Amazon or Best Buy. Plus when I bought it the guy at the counter was actually able to compare the pros and cons of Persona 3 and Persona 4.
The second-hand games market is a total travesty at the moment. You receive pittance for a game maybe a month old, which they then sell on for a massive profit. Copies of new games which are pre-owned are sold for a couple of quid less than retail, which many people would pick over the slightly more expensive new copy so that they earn more or less double for a single game. This means less stock of new games and a huge pre-owned section. Along with piracy its a pretty major problem.
Edit: I haven't proof read this and I'm tired.
