EB Games Australia won't sell Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D

While most outlets have been praising Capcom's Resident Evil: The Mercenaries 3D with positive reviews, most will also mention the peculiar and controversial save system. Basically, the game doesn't allow players to reset their save files, meaning absoluetly no sell-back value.

As such, retailers in several countries are switching their usual policies for Mercenaries 3D. UK retailer HMV will not accept trade-ins of the game, in order to "avoid any potential customer disappoint for those purchasing pre-owned versions."

EB Games Australia, on the other hand, has decided to drop the game completely, as confirmed by a quick search on their website. Some consumers have complained on the retailer's Facebook page, stating the company's refusal to carry Mercenaries 3D is unfair to gamers who are interested in the game.

I don't see what the problem is. They are using this system to protect against used game sales.

Why complain about this to EB Games? There are other games retailers in Australia - online and bricks and mortar.

It's a good thing for the other retailers.

Tbh, I'm surprised people even shop at EB Games considering how expensive most of their games are. Expecting $110 for PS3 and 360 games and $100 for Wii games is ridiculous. I saw a used copy of Super Mario Galaxy 1 the other day selling for $95.99!
