Erm.....erm....No, wait, wait,oooh, i know this one.They'll go up right? I'm sure that's it, no really, that's right isn't it?

As for pre owned games, i know of at least one well known chain that tries to pass off pre owned as new and charge full price and claim that 360 games don't all come sealed when new!

There's a good argument they will go down, in Australia at least where they are super expensive to begin with.

Since EB has a policy of allowing you to return any game within a week of purchase you would have to think stacks of their 'new' games are used.
