Ha i could most likely go into gamestop and get two or more of those games for under 30$. The thing i hate about Walmart/Meijer/Target is they will have old games that are priced at $60 even though i could go into gamestop and get it brand new for $20.

TheTeam063183d ago

That's why I freaked out when I saw MotorStorm: Pacific Rift for $15 at a Wal-Mart! The Gamestop in the same plaza had it for $40!

I had to move quick to pick it up. Turns out I got the last copy =P

ZombieAutopsy3183d ago

I've seen some deals at target every now and then, when Skate 2 dropped down to $40 they had it on clearance for around $23 but besides the occasional deal they usually rape you on game prices.

must be different in the states... in canada, walmart ALWAYS has eb'(gs) prices beat. a lot of good games come out at $40 at walmart while eb sells them for $5 more than all the regular retailers. not only that, at least you get a sealed copy at walmart =P

At least at Wal-mart they aren't selling used games where the dev gets 0% cut.

Gamestop can suck my balls. They are just middlemen who strive to rip as many people off as possible. They buy used games for $10 and sell them for $55.

The last time I went there they said "If you get this membership card for $5, you'll get $5 of of those 2 games" (meaning a $5 savings) "plus a magazine subscription that's a $15 value".

I figure, wtf I might as well even though the magazine subscription could probably be purchased for $5. Except when I leave the store I realize he charged me for the fvckin magazines.

Fvck gamestop and their 'corporate script of things to say to make people think they are getting a deal when you're actually ass raping them'.

Price-Matching. They'll price-match any local competitor (notice: LOCAL competitor) when it comes to price. Only valid on in-store competition, not online. I take advantage of this when places like RadioShack or GameStop offer deals, especially during holiday shopping season.

Any huge corporation is the devil, that includes both gamestop and walmart, deal with it.

Cenobia3183d ago

Wal-Mart is fine when it comes to games (despite the fact that they push other businesses out when it comes to other merchandise).

They don't buy/sell used games to rip people off and don't buy out stupid pre-order bonuses (which I effing hate). I usually only buy from Amazon, but if I ever want to quickly grab a game, I'm never going to gamestop again.

kaos_fish II3183d ago

WTF are you talking about.. hate to break to you but Walmart, Best Buy, Blockbuster and even Microcenter sell used games.

Are they the devil too?

frostypants3183d ago (Edited 3183d ago )

Why SHOULD the developer get a cut from the sale of a USED game? Let's use furniture as an example. When you buy a coffee table, and decide to unload it later because it doesn't match your new apartment, do you feel bad if you don't give the furniture store a cut of the craigslist sale? It's the SAME THING. The game is yours, you bought it, and you have the right to sell it as long as you are selling the original and not keeping an illegal copy. And whomever you sold it to, in this case Gamestop, has the same rights. Or are you against second hand furniture stores, as well?

Stop buying into the propaganda being spread by big game corporations.

GuruStarr783183d ago

Uh, thats why theyre two for thirty bucks.....what did you expect? Red Dead Redemption and Resistance 2?

EmotionalNinja3183d ago

What did you expect, the games retail for $15 each, they aren't even considered platinum titles.

mprunty3183d ago

Not that good of a selection, however i can pick up the Star Wars games.

Baltis3183d ago

Wow, where'd Wal-mart find those at, the Bathroom? Talk about suck and suck some more.
