the majority are too old to be found new, and even with used games you're still getting more than what you get from a digital download. of course it counts.
wrong, you can find almost any game new on half.com, also, ur right you are getting more with a used game, more as in scratches on the disc, somebody's booger in the instruction manual, and fecal matter on the case.
and I thought I was the only who did that to their cases...
Only one of these games is even being sold new, so especially in this situation, the price of the used game is the price of the game. Bottom line.
You looking in 1 place for a game doesn't equal the value of it everywhere.
Gamestop isn't the end all be all
you're right, but it's a fairly good indicator.
The Xbox Marketplace has rip off prices probably for the vast majority of games. It's crazy that they think even the oldest games are still worth $15, and a sale means to to bring the a price from 'ridiculously high' to 'way too high'.
does PSN do this? I wonder what a sale looks like for them.
If Microsoft really does want to combat the used game market then they absolutely need to undersell GameStop or at LEAST match them. As a dev would you rather get $5 for your game because someone bought it online, or would you rather receive $0 because everyone bought the cheaper used copy? They need to run more quality sales more frequently or they'll never convert the used game buyers over and it'll continually hurt the industry. I paid $10 for Dark Souls when it was on sale and that's better than I'd find in a store so I bought it. Were they to run sales like that more frequently I'd spend more money with them.
