I work at eb games, and when i first saw this poster i laughed.

if anyone tries to do this deal, I'm going to tell them not to and turn them away.

Nice article, Hops. An interesting perspective, even if it is only relevant for those in New Zealand.

The point about retailers such as EB Games trying to exploit the second hand games market and how developers are trying to combat this I found quite interesting. This is something that many here probably do not consider but it has serious ramifications for all gamers.

DLC seems to be quite the increasing hot topic these days; even flagship titles like Killzone 2 has rumors of Co-op coming as DLC. It could well be true that DLC is, in addition to other reasons, a response from publishers trying to stem the market of second hand games. If this is the case, then I see dark days for those that operate with caps or limits on their broadband.

EB Games has always been a ripoff regardless of the "deal".

"We'll give you 5 bucks for that and sell it for 45" or "you can buy it used for 55 dollars or if you want to spend the coin here's a new copy for 59 bucks"

Seriously though, this is a huge rip.

Sell on Ebay. You will get more and the buyer will pay less.

I never shop at gamestop or eb games, I just don't want to hand over my money to them lol

I do because it seems like I am forced to. The SOCOM beta was through them and it is just easier. But I do not sell them my games.
