Well the reason is because they need to make a profit. They make more profit on used game sales because it cost the half of what they sell for. Companies make more money on resales than on new copies. The profit marin is greater on used then old.

I just don't understand why they don't mark them down more. I mean its USED game, not new. They only sale them for a little less than new onr. For the price, I would much rather have a new copy. Plus its bad for the game industry. Companies make no money off of resales.

Oh I do agree it's a rip off...A guy and his girl came in to trade in Metal Gear Solid 4 and the value was only 12bucks they decided that they would sell it on ebay and left the store...I might try that to see how it would go...but trading in games is how the store make their money

If You're tired or starting over stop giving up

Well at least you got a deal from there. I still think its a rip off to trade games into any of those stores. 60 dollars games that you buy and its new and popular and you trade it back its 25 dollars and the sell it for 50. Right. I could not stand working there and being able to look at a customers face and tell them they are only get 20 bucks for a 60 dollar game and I will be selling it for 50. Oh well.

Did anyone get this game at Circuit City. They were giving away 1600 microsoft points with purchase. I had it reserved at game crazy but decided if I were going to get I would get it there. Circuit City is good at getting deals with games. Like not too long ago they has a stradgey guide come with teh game for free. I guess thats why they are going into Chapter 11.

I picked up the game last night. I will pop it in tonight to check it out. I opted for the basic game. The limited edition was cool. Best buy was giving away a small tank with LE purchase.

I'll post after I try it out.


oh by the way that is cool with ken and the whole design and signing and everything.

Anyone pick it up yet?
The limited edition is very nice. Has a lot of cool bonus features. The part I like the best is the picture that Dom has of him and his wife.

I watched Ken play the game last night for a while. It looks amazing! He was telling me all about the first level, the training & hospital one. That was one of his levels, so I'm really proud of him! After that he and some coworkers went to our local Gamestop to sign copies of the game at the midnight release. They had a raffel with give away stuff like signed comics, posters, etc. as well. Pretty cool!

I don't recall the rendezvous one, but I think the mad world was great. I would have to say they were about even.
It is amazing hoe they really make you feel for the characters. It is like you forget it is a game advertisement.

Seriously! WHen they first showed it at the party it was on a fuzzy projection screen, so I was not completely blown away. But when I saw it at home on my tv I was like, WOW! I love the part when they show the poppy. How do you think this commercial compares to the last two- mad world and rendevous?

I saw that commercial. It was pretty nice.
I'm not bragging, but wanted to relate that seeing the commercial in HD was awesome. Better than the crappy video I normally see on my computer.
