It amazes me that people are retarded enough to sell to GameStop. Even more when you see some of you guys on /v/ doing it. You're probably underage since you don't understand basic economics, but you realize eBay has been around since before you kiddies were born right?

It must be awesome as fuck to have people walk in to your store and willingly trade in a game for 50% of its market value USED.

In this case they're opening them so they can sell them for whatever they want at a preowned classification. The real issue is when they sell beat up, gutted store copies of games as new just since the disc or cart hasn't been bought or played. I've actually had the manager at a Gamestop offer to reseal the gutted, beat as shit store copy of a game if I needed it to look like it was actually new for a gift. Absolutely disgusting.

They're both expensive, and both have the reversible cover. I don't think anyone other than "muh first edition" purist shits care.

It's not even noticeable, and it can be easily "faked" by exchanging the original case for an old Wii game's case.

I can sort of understand when people want only the black labels, or player's choice ETC, but not "first print" when it's the goddamn same game.

If you weren't goddamn retarded, you might know the reason this happens.

In the late 80's- early 90's I believe (I'm not a weeb, I lived there for a few years so if I'm off by a few years, i'm off, whatever.) they made game rentals basically illegal, because the stores can make massive profits on whoring out a property they don't even own.

So, if you were like most kids in that time period, you got enough money to buy maybe ONE game per 3-4 months, maybe more if you were lucky. So, Japanese people would keep their games in immaculate condition so they could sell it back for money and hopefully buy another within a few weeks.

In America, however, you could rent games, so there was less of a demand to keep games in good condition, or to even own a bunch of them at all; you could ask Mom if you could stop by Blockbuster, Hollywood Video, etc, on the way home, and if she took mercy on you, you could rent Donkey Kong Country for the 14th time.

I don't even know where I was going with this, but enjoy that information I guess
>>
>>258603697
Japanese people have less space, and also old games gather up in stores in the dozens.

You can buy almost every great NES and SNES title from any shitty old game store for less than $10 equivalent, typically.

They also buy shitty games and trade them back in droves, when FFXIII and Tales of Xillia came out their used prices dropped to $15 in a month.
>>
>>258601778
Same thing happens for all the collectors editions. I learnt from buying Golden that I should always get the maximum amount at the time of a collectors edition and if they don't sell just cancel the ones I don't need. Usually I sell one or two of them and that more then covers the game I will actually play in price. I'm going to buy a new pc to play the witcher with the gains from this one.

Gamestop has started "offering more" for trade-ins to combat growing competition from Walmart and online and digital sales

When in actuality all they are doing is advertising their trade in program more and any trade in boosts in value its only a few games and only a few dollars
>>
>>258596219
Most Nintendo games pretty much never drop in price. Super Mario 64 DS, a game released over 10 years ago and has 11 million copies in circulation and it's fucking 30 dollars.
>>
>>258603915
I see nothing wrong with buying years-old games for under $10. Not going to find games like Bayonetta new at reasonable prices, and even if you did the money still likely won't be supporting the makers at this point.

I paid ~$4.75 for Perfect Dark Zero (should be funny) Lost Planet and the complete first Gears of War today because why not. That's pocket change. I'm not buying anything recent from them though, if I'm paying over $25 for a game I'll just buy new if its still comparable. Their new games aren't even new.

Can't cancel?

Ebgames here in canada, it's just a few clicks to cancel shipment, not sure if gamestop the us version has a different policy

They're not going to sell out.

resellers are scum and I'm glad gamestop tried to jew their way into that since it means I was able to get a copy for forty bucks.
>>
>>258604642
I bet a lot more of those 11 million copies are still in people's collections than in Gamestop compared to something like, say Call of Duty or Bioshock though. People play those and then trade them in frequently, people don't seem to trade in Nintendo games as often. The majority of used DS/Wii games are trash because people hold onto all the good ones.

It's ten dollars.

First run had "Wii" second run had "Nintendo" above the disc slot.

You could do>>258605280 but first vs second run isn't very well known and there literally isn't a price difference. It's just that if you bought one marked "Nintendo" you supported Gamestop Jewry.

But then it won't be my Netflix box anymore.

>>258601851
Or because it's literally the best Pokemon game ever, and it came with a physical thing too so full copies are harder to find.

It next to platinum.

It's still more

but xenoblade and mpt are selling for $50 each at gamestop.

I'm not doing it for some long term financial goal aimed at fucking the industry, i'm doing it because i'm not going to pay fuck retarded prices. Everyone else understood that, except you. Well done.

Yeah, pay 80$ dollars for a 2 cent disc that holds the 60$ game, or download the exact same data for free.

What do you think a Wii VC game would cost if they went that route normally? Because the answer is probably thirty dollars.
>>
>>258600678
it's not that price anymore
I was in gamestop last week getting a Wii U and saw copies for 49.99
>>
>>258606527
You're missing the point. All SNES VC games are $7 on Wii U, except for Earthbound, which is $10. It may not seem like much, but it is setting a dangerous precedent for the future

>Show ignorance

>"WHY SHOULD I CARE ABOUT THIS GROUP!?!?!"

Anon, the fact is you were retarded and assumed everyone was an asshole "Digital Only" faggot, while completely ignoring the ever present and high demand for physical shit. IT doesn't matter if you care or not, that doesn't excuse being a fucking retard.
>>258606458
No one pays that though. The only people who cared about Xenoblade bought it in the first run, and most were knowledgeable enough about Gamestop jewry to be savvy about the Second run copies. Fuck, Reddit knew about the story before /v/ because I remember when it first broke out. I'm pretty sure Kotaku even had an article about it.

Hardly anyone bought the second print copies otherwise they would be retaining their price instead of dropping like it is.

In a few more years it'll go back up along with the other two rainfall games because they all had limited runs and they all were mildly popular.

>>258595947
I don't replay games.
Buy used, beat it in a week, and return it for full money back. Gamestop is the new blockbuster.
>>
>>258593813
they sell them for $40 so it's actually about right.
>>
>>258606527
They wouldn't do WiiVC because the WiiU can literally play Wii games as is.

I don't think I've ever seen ANY VC go over maybe 15 dollars

By the Time Wii VC comes around the Wii will be as old as the N64.

Most games can be beaten in a week, sowhy pay money when I don't need too, expecialy when its legal.

Where in the blue fuck did i say everyone was a digital only faggot? the fuck are you actually spouting? sounds like you're just fucking devastated that i refuse to buy games at inflated prices when i can just pirate them, which i will keep doing. I'm not paying a scalper over £100 for a game. Fuck that.

Right there you faggot.The collector market is not effected by digital and Emulation.

Acting like a retard and being ignorant is an excuse for jack shit. Especially since it's obvious no one is buying the second print copies, if you actually bothered to read the rest of the post.

Clearly you have me confused with another poster as i have not once in this thread mentioned softmodding a wii, someone responded to me with that perhaps that's where you fucked up. If you're going to splerg fucking make sure it's the right person you retard.

>>258608505
Oh you're right, you're even more retarded because you use dolphin to emulate INSTEAD of softmodding

Jesus christ anon, you just keep getting worse and worse, right down to your reddit tier use of reaction images.

>implying i emulate them

Your first week here clearly. I suggested the option, one many people use it doesn't mean i emulate those titles. I own Xenoblade for fucks sake but got it at release. Keep blabbering on if you like but i'm done, it's killing braincells talking to you.

>>258609197

You literally just right up there presented it as a better alternative.

They're usually not even competitive with particularly shitty eBay auctions.
