People who pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption received codes to download special items and weapons. Some people are now selling these download codes on eBay and the prices for these items are very high.
You wouldn't see me buying a DLC that people get in stores
i agree, damn there are greedy people out there that wants to make a profit of something they received for free heh
Always happens. People will do anything to make a few extra bucks.
I really can't blame them, because there are always people out there that buy it. The demand is obviously there.
Why blame it on the seller or buyer? They both seem happy so what is the problem. Seriously people always think that they can butt into others bizness. If the sellers were hoarding it, then that is an entirely different issue, but these were given away as a pre-order. Just a case of the smart outwits the non-planner.
Haha, jeez. I just gave out two golden gun codes. To think I could've made money. Oh well I suppose. No use crying over that. Hope those two enjoy it though.
I do enjoy it, ReservoirDog316. Thanks again, more people should be as nice as you.
Though it's not as bad as the WoW DLC that was once released. If I remember they were charging 100 dollars or so (maybe i'm completely off) for a new mount.
You're right, somewhat. People were charging for rare mounts that were only obtained through buying the WoW trading cards. The rare card had a code for this mount...prices were going for well over $100 for it though lol.
Yea, you would rather pay through the nose on xbox live for your DLC. I see the difference, lol. Moron!
What a bunch of greedy tards.. but now a days people will buy and sell anything. *sigh*
I would love to hear an explanation as to why anyone would buy that stuff.
Don't blame the people listing them, blame the morons willing to pay that price. It doesn't make any sense why someone would spend at least half the cost of the game for ONE single item. Obviously they have the internet, so why didn't they know about the pre-order bonuses?
I would like to buy the War Horse for my ps3 version, but the maximum amount I would be willing to spend would be 5 bucks. I don't have a best buy where I live, so I couldn't really partake in (all) of the pre order bonuses. I certainly wouldn't pay 30 bucks for one though.
Maybe because their copy didnt come with DLC and they cant get it anywhere else? You buy DLC on live, how is it any different? Its good to see the consumer for once, be able to make a few extra bucks back on his or her purchase. Nothing wrong with that!
no worse than publishers and developers getting greedy and charging extra to play online with a used game.
I don't agree with charging to unlock online modes for used games, but it's $10 for all of the online features. This is $25-$50 for a single item. That isn't even close to the same thing really.
maybe not close in terms of dollars and cents, but it's the same principle.
Will raise the price for DLC in the future because idiots will buy this.
both sides are at fault.
The things people would sell for money these days.. How 'bout you sell your wife, kids & your vehicle on there while your at it.. Gets you money, right? so can't be all that bad. :D .. How 'bout those box of condoms that have been in your bedside drawer for years now..? You aren't going to use 'em anytime soon except for that one time so there is only 9 in that 10x packet.. but who cares you know.. someone will want it lol Chuck 'em on eBay :D
Saw a War Horse sell for $59.00 yest. Crazy kids!
I may as well sell mine. I can't use it anyway! (server down, try again later...)
Lol what the hell? I pre-ordered Red Dead Redemption from GAME in store (since I got £90 trade in credit) and it comes with just the Deadly Outfit DLC, I think I would rather have had the Horse Anyway its all ridiculous, they give out the codes on little cards with the game, and they get so many stock in, if not enough people pre-order the game they have them left over, and just give them to anyone who buys the game way after release date! this happened to me with Alan Wake :)
bought it at Best Buy. I've used the code already...can I still sell it and have it work for someone else? Not that I would. The War Horse is bad ass by the way. Winning races are almost too easy with him.
had a Golden Gun code in the box then a few days later Amazon sent out codes in an E-mail.
Yeah, I have two codes for golden guns. WTF!! I want that horse! Anyone want to trade??
i was thinking the same thing, got 2 golden gun codes, wouldn't mind trading it for that war horse
Thats funny that some of you complain that why anyone would buy this DLC from someone and that people are being greedy. Are you kidding me? The game companies have been doing it and alot of you idiots are the ones buying it all on xbox live and psn network! How is this any [email protected] different? Its ok for the game publishers, but not ok for the cosumer? Get real, just listed my extra one on ebay! Thx for posting this and the info! Hopefully can make a few extra bucks in these hard economic times we live in.
and I'm NOT selling them dey ar mine! =3
So? What's wrong with that? If somebody is dumb enough to pay for it then why not? Everyone is happy in the end. I've seen worse on eBay.
