Hedgylove if you think both new or a couple of month Nintendo 3DS games are expensive then you should see the prices for 5-6 year old Nintendo DS games at the Shopko store that I still go to. 35 bucks even for Iron Man 1 and for that Blue Dragon game
Join a game trading website, but get reviews first. Do paid online surveys / searches for Amazon gift cards. Follow cheapassgamer. First save up twenty bucks so you can actually buy something when you see a deal.

Yeah handheld games are expensive. The msrp price for handheld games should be $24.00 and for consoles $40.00. At least lower the price for handheld games to $30.00. In the previous generation (DS/PSP/PS2/Xbox) if you wanted cheaper games, you pirated, and it was much easier too compared to now.
$40 is expensive? Look at console games. $60 brand new.
Console games are $60 brand new? That's a 3DS game in Australia, and some in Japan as well.
Who the **** wants to pay more? Would you rather pay $30 for a video game or $60? It's common sense. It's kind of shocking that video games are sold more in Japan, yet they cost more, and the Japanese are going through an inflation crisis. If people really look at the numbers video games sales all across the world are down, even in Japan. I think the world should be more like China when it comes to copyright law, they sell Xbox 360 games for $1. Hurray for piracy.
