In other stores like Amazon and Best Buy,
Brand New PS3 games r much cheaper than GameStop used games or even their fake new games(opened/unsealed)

How come?

Certain games maybe, but not all.
I see games drop in price at gamestop (new) well before they do at any other place.

But it depends on the game.

And STOP hating...if you don't like gamestop so much, then DON'T shop there.
W-T-F is the problem ?

If you don't like people hating on Gamestop then DON'T post in topics about it.

^ If you don't like me posting, then TOUGH **** !

These anti gamestop topics are beyond stupid.
Nobody is being forced to shop there, yet some people love to act like they were victimized somehow.
it's pathetic.

I'm gonna go ahead and agree with both sides on this one...those topics are stupid and people who have a problem with GS just shouldn't shop there...but at the same time they have every right to post those topics and people with a problem with them should just ignore them

That aside this isn't really a GS hate topic

TC, you make these asinine pro GameStop topics every week, and each time you're shot down. Why do you keep at it?

The problem with your claim is, well.. it's complete and utter BS. MSRP is standard across all retailers, so a $40 games at BestBuy is $40 or WalMart or wherever. But we all know this. Like your last topic, you want to point to arbitrary and time sensitive sales of individual stores and say, "look! it costs less than a used game!!" But anyone with a lick of common sense knows this is a ridiculous argument.

And lol@ someone actually thinking this is a GS hate topic.
Goodbye Chewy. You were the best friend I could ask for. Rest in peace, buddy.
