why is dead space 1 so expensive?

#1aPimp_named_leEPosted 3/19/2013 6:00:32 PM
i bought the greatest hits version of the game from gamestop a year or two back for 20 bucks new. the other day i went into a gamestop and saw it for 30 dollars used. http://www.gamestop.com/ps3/games/dead-space/67935
im surprised. its more expensive than DS2 and DS3 new (15 and 30 on the origins online shop this week only). is it rare or something? the gamestop i went to must have had well over 10 on the shelves so idk why it costs so much for a used game that seems to be well in supply. other gamestops i have been to have a had quite a few copies as well. its a little pricey online as well, but obviously cheaper than retail.

20 bucks isnt alot of money especially for the GotY edition.

ill buy the out of print one before i buy the high demand reason. if thats the case there wouldn't be so many on the shelf. over the course of a month the guy at gs told me they haven't sold that many. well at least at the stores i have been. to. can't say much for nation wide or online. is this game not available on the playstation store for download?
