Gamestop price gouging

#1BuyersRemorse55Posted 4/4/2013 7:19:32 AM
Dead Space has been $20 or less for a while now. Now I see its up to $30 just cause part 3 came out recently.

No, it's because it's harder to come by. I haven't seen a non platinum hits version in years

I'm pretty sure you don't understand what price gouging is.

The inherent idiocy of youth often outweighs its many advantages.

Boulderdash, I've seen it plenty of times about the last couple years.

Maybe you should have bought it before a sequel increased the demand. Or if it's just GameStop, buy it somewhere else.

This isn't the first time I've seen them do it. It makes me upset because I think: I should have bought it when it was 10 dollars.

I cannot remember the name of the games, but I remember asking the clerk why the price went up and he said demand or something.

They are a business, of course they will try to make money out of a game if is harder to come by and the popularity is going back up.

You maybe be right. I also recollect Mass Effect 1 going up in price past the $20 mark it had been at for a few years when ME3 came out. Luckily though ME1 is for retail at a lot more stores and was easily buyable for $20 at Target, Walmart and Kmart, even though Gamestop had the same version for $30 new and was selling used for the good old $3 dolla discount at $27.

People really do look for reasons to hate gamestop.

Ultimate alliance gold edition is harder to find. I had it, traded it, and went to buy it again (regrettable trade), now its 30 bucks. Popularity was the reason I was given.

lol I love your name buyersremorse. >_<

I forgot what thread people were arguing about, I think it was GOW:J. Someone made a thread asking if people have buyers remorse. You came in and said nope.

He then quoted you and said your name is telling him different. It made me lol. :P
