Alright well first off this is not meant to start some anti GameStop thing going. I am just honestly wondering

I was just looking at GameStop's website at the recent price drops, and i thought for sure Mortal Kombat Komplete Edition was 20 dollars new, but it comes up 30 and that is after a price drop it seems the DLC is on Disc, and i was thinking of grabbing it in a few weeks, but not for 30

Also the first Prototype is 25 used when as a few weeks ago it seemed to be around 15

Final Fantasy XIII-2 is down to 19.99
so that dropped Final Fantasy XIII to 15 where as before i noted it was 9 dollars at the end of last year.

Other then my assumed reasoning that GameStop is trying to squeeze a little more out of an older game when the newer version comes out is there any real reason this happens?

I have also seen Velvet Assassin go from 10 dollars to 15 dollars, so it has not always been because a newer title is coming out.

So i was just curious if there was any real reason other then GameStop trying to sneak a few dollar out of a sale? Do older games actually rise in popularity? I know it happens with some limit run games, but something like Velvet Assassin? while a neat game i did not notice any rise in popularity for it.

The new games you talk about, those were sales prices I think? So it makes sense to restore the prices, then they can lower them again at Thanksgiving and Xmas.

Its just their way of cashing in on crazes. They raised the price of RE:ORC recently back to $34.99 after it was below $20 some weeks ago. (because RE6 is out now, to try and make more $$ with that too)

Ha I know how sales work thanks. While mortal kombat may have been part of a sale I don't think velvet assassin was back then and I also remember Halo 3 being 5 dollars used and is now 20

I don't think Halo three would of been on sale for months and months but now that halo 4 is comming out hm

It has to do with demand.

I was wondering the same. I was browsing titles and was surprised to see L4D2 for $45?! And then newer games that one would expect to still be in some demand for much less

Wow, see this was the reason i started this thread. I had no idea Left 4 Dead was that much.
The platinum hits version is 30 new with DLC that i think is free on the market place. I thought all platinum hits were 20? much less the first Left 4 Dead.

and Left 4 Dead 2 is 30 new 45 used like you said.
