I went to Gamestop, doing a little Christmas shopping (and honestly just getting my groove on to this music they were playing at Gamestop) and I was looking at the out of cartridge DS games, and guess what was there.
...Super Princess Peach.
I was like, sweet, I've been subscribing to Nintendo Power since 2009, and yet I never even knew this game existed. I was gonna buy it until I looked at the price tag: 44.09 DOLLARS. WTF?!
I was like that has to be a mistake but I didn't feel like asking an employee, so I drove about 20 miles to the other Gamestop, and it was the SAME PRICE. I was fed up and asked the guy behind the counter why a used DS game cost so much, and he said that there's a lot of demand for it plus they're remaking it on the 3DS. Turns out the game came out with the release of the original DS and now they're remaking it for the 3DS. Why is it so exspensive though?
The game was neither a launch title for the DS, nor is it being remade or ported to the 3DS.
It does appear to be overpriced, however. It was £20 pre-owned at my local GAME when I went this morning. I'd go with the fact that it's a Mario game - games like Mario Kart DS and Super Mario 64 DS still have high prices too.
