Sly 4 - cross buy then sell disc?

#1drags_Posted 2/4/2013 10:18:18 PM
So you put the disc in the PS3 then enter a code there to link it to your account right?

I am thinking about buying this and linking it to my account then selling the PS3 game to my buddy or gamestop for $20, this would work right? I know it is a cheap thing to do but if I can get the game even cheaper then I am going to take advantage of it.

You could sell it but gamestop is onto that so they will probably give you $5. You could trick your buddy though.

You pay $40'at GameStop

You hackle some of your friends to buy a not so popular game that's already opened for $20 sure I can see a regular joe falling for that....but if he catches on what you did he likely will want the vita version.....I dunno it will be hard to sell a sly game people that want it will have it on release day so.....

If the game comes out for 60 bucks with cross buy and you sell it for 20 when the Vita version is likely to be 40 bucks. Nope your better off just buying the Vita version alone.

Yeah TC would have to make more than $10 on the game to make any kind of discount. Gamestop will not give you more than that but if he can get more than $10 from his buddy he will save whatever more he makes.

The game launches for $40, my friend might be interested in buying the disc for $20. He doesn't have a Vita so he doesn't care about it, unless the Vita version is cheaper than $20 we will be walking away with a good deal.

You have to include tax...($3) so he is making about $7. That's enough to buy premium chicken sandwhich combo at zaxby's.....ouch

He could live in a state with no sales tax like New Hampshire.
