who thinks that its bs that you could go buy a brand new game for 60$ then trade it in and only get 20 bucks back...
well i do
any one else agree
This topic is locked from further discussion.
yes, i agree. the sad thing is that gamestop resells the game for $55 thinking that its a new game. i bought gears of war august it was $55 used which i bought because the store didn't have any new.... i was kind of pissed.
some people think ebay is good. i never used it to sell things but i gues its good.
who else thinks 60 bucks is a scam for a little of fun:!
Well if you don't like paying the price, don't buy it, and certainly don't buy a brand new game to trade a week later, thats just greed imo.
Games over here cost around 40-50 pounds, which is more or less 80-100 dollars.
either way, a good game is well worth that kind of money, even if they do devalue with time.
i think its BS that a brand new video game costs as much as a full tank of gas now....
i agree 100 percent that the best point ever
What you meant to say was:
I think it's BS that a full tank of gas costs as much as video games now.
Spartan874 should have
Video games have always been this expensive. I was a PC gamer until Xbox, and PC games have been in the $40-$55 range since I was a kid. Correct me if I'm wrong, console gamers, but weren't new NES games around $50? If you looked solely at the finished product, games should be far, far more expensive than they used to be. An A-list game costs as much to make as a movie, and invovles hundreds of people. Compare this to Doom, which was written by a small team of guys in a living room. Everyone should thank God for economies of scale, and that games have barely risen in price in the last 20 years. Someone can do the math on this one, but I seriously doubt game prices have even kept up with inflation, let alone risen.
NES games would routinely cost up to, and sometimes over $70.
Games got cheaper with the advent of CDROM's, and people got too used to paying $35-50 for games so that now people are complaining that the rising cost of development is being conveyed to the consumer by a $10 increase to $60. When in fact, it's still much cheaper than it was in the NES era.
