At this point, many of you have throughly beaten Mario U, a very good game. I have.

Because of the magic of trading/ebay selling, I can now take my game to Gamestop and get for the next 2 weeks, $40 in trade in value:

Making the net purchase only $20.

Or I can keep the game and be out $60.

Even look at the over year old Mario Kart 3ds. $25 trade value. When the game has been on sale for as little as $30.

Thanks for watching another Edition of "Why Digital Downloading Sucks!" Mainly for high priced digital being released at same cost as retail (that many times you can get on sale. I bought my Mario U for $45 average, with Toys R Us Buy 1, get 2nd at 50% off! That crap don't play on digital download)

Or, you can keep the game that is worth $59.99 AND get $5 in Nintendo eShop credit.

Why don't you rent the game instead if you don't intent on keeping it ?

That would require thinking.

I keep all my games. used games give nothing back to the developer. Watch it be significantly harder to get used games next gen.


Playing games off a harddrive RULES!
