I know that the Ratchet and Clank series is pretty much irrelevant but this made me sad i just found on ebay a lot of 50 secret agent clank copies for PSP all factory sealed, this is the first time in my life i've come across such a depressing attempt to clear stock of unsold games.

I could post the link but i'd rather not because thats beside the point, has anyone here seen such a big amount of sealed copies of one particular game stacked up for sale? I've seen it bad with madden and other sports games but never this bad,

Shovelware?

To me secret agent clank is nothing but a cheap ass spin off, worthless whatsoever and to some extent i consider it shovelware.

Shovelware and games so worthless that you can find piles of unsold copies of them for sale at retailers or the internet.

So we're using your opinion, and it's not even completely shovelware in that? Why was this thread made again?[QUOTE="AgentA-Mi6"] Shovelware and games so worthless that you can find piles of unsold copies of them for sale at retailers or the internet.

If this is the reason this thread was made, then wow, this is absolutely terrible. 2/10 TC.

Maybe I should make a thread about the Ps3 or 360 actually winning this gen somehow,one trashing vita because its selling less than the 3Ds or better yet, claiming that a PS3 or 360 game is the graphics King . Or flat out trolling everyone with Jelly or Domination continuation, if thats what youre into then suit yourself cause theres plenty. Im just sharing what I found because I had never seen anything like it before, a game so underwhelming that you can find a lot of 50 brand new copies for sale.

Then blog it. This is a sorry excuse for a thread and so are the ones you listed in your post. What's wrong with a guy buying 50 of a game? And why is it then shovelware? Why not make this thread focused on the game instead of having a vague goal in mind that's explained amazingly poorly? Why do I keep responding to this terrible thread?

Because you have nothing better to do than responding to what youve strongly accused of being a pointless thread? You're free to leave whenever you want.

You're right, I really don't. It's fun seeing how bad this thread is.

That's the PSP for you.

It had, by far, the worst software attach ratio for any console of last gen. Piracy was so rampant on the system.

i can find loads of games across different platforms with a ton of unopened copies, hell i can find you tons of unopened copies of halo 4 and black ops 2, this thread is irrelevant as hell

I know right, I remember walking in at a random GameStop and seeing about 15 copies of Nadden NFL 2008 but that was used copies, not brand new. The PSP had it bad. I barely play mine anymore and thats a shame, Patapon was a brilliant game for starters and there are many underappreciated gems on the system.

This thread is horrible. That should be where it went first.
#28 Posted by 2Chalupas (5014 posts) -
Was it an individual seller or a place like Newegg? Because they put their stuff on ebay all the time, and obviously they are dealing in hundreds of quantities. I've bought a few $10-15 clearance games from them off of ebay before - it's just like using the newegg website except you go through ebay - pay with paypal - and get an ebay feeback.. If it's an individual seller, I would just be wondering how in the heck they got their hands on so many copies. Although I will admit when I find super-amazing deals that I know I can flip on ebay, I will get as many as 5 copies to flip. 5 is about the max I would want to deal with though. I couldn't imagine having an "inventory" of 50 of anything LOL.

I'm not linking from eBay, but that's the picture used by the seller.

Why exactly Im I getting the hostile replies, yes it may be a pointless thread but the discussions here are generally pointless one way or another. Aside from the occasional leak stolen from gaf or Japanese boards theres hardly any meaningful information shared on SW, ever.

So you admit it's pointless. And call these replies hostile. And use other threads as justification for this horrible thread. Oh god, it keeps getting worse man. Just stop.

Its a place apparently, they're trying to get rid of their stock. I wonder what other game did so bad that you can find stacked piles of brand new copies, aside from the yearly sports titles.

Yeah, maybe i shoud. Although, I wont. Its an interesting subject, like i said, i want to hear if anyone else has come across piles of unsold games like i just did. A pile of unsold Lair or Too Human copies would be funny to see. Sadly, we're more likely to find a stockpile of Valkyria Chronicles or Mirrors Edge.

No it's not. Are Valkyria Chronicles and Mirror's Edge shovelware. What makes someone's hard work not selling funny to see? Are you that cruel?

Yeah.. sitting on a pallet waiting to be sold. Any stack of Halo 4 or Black Ops 2 won't stay stacked for long. There is a difference. I've seen stacks of older games in clearance bins for months. One of these games was Full Spectrum Warrior. Another was Mindjack. They had a ton of these in the bin.

I have no idea man, mind boggling as it is some people just decide to post even when they're in bad mood i guess. You know i seriously dislike ratchet, that game has a damn curse, the only time i gave a try to a ratchet demo my PS3 got the YLOD after 5 years and 2 months of working with no problems whatsoever and coincidence or not that probably made me hate the series even more lol.

Reading comprehension, i said "sadly" and its not funny because someone is having a hard time selling them, its just because the quality of titles such as Lair, Too human and secret agent clank is questionable in my opinion.
