Why Is Gran Turismo 5 Still $60 After 8 Months?!

#1iPr0kkaFTWPosted 7/6/2011 6:51:27 PM
Even a pre-owned copy will cost you $55 at GameStop! More than 8 months and Gran Turismo 5 is still a $60 game whereas other games released around and after GT5, those games are cheaper now. Why is this? A friend of mine was about to buy a copy of GT5 at GameStop thinking it would be cheap since it's been around for almost a year but it's still expensive as if it was just released! So he thought he'll get a used copy but the price is almost the same if you were to get it for new!

What's so special about GT5? Why is this game still selling at full price when it came out? I thought this game would be cheap and be sold in the bargain bin since it was criticized heavily and was considered a disappointment.

Because it was an expensive ass game that received good reviews.

Because many people hate sim racers, and those that like them have very few choices to spend their money on.

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.

Because people are buying the crap out of it and they aren't going to lower the price till people stop buying it.

Yeah, I checked Gamestop and Best Buy just yesterday hoping to find it for a lower price but was disappointed. I guess I will wait a little longer.
