game the retailer


[link to this post]
 
ps3 game brand new £13.

used £12.99

seriously one penny difference?

I know they like to keep used games only slightly cheaper than new but this one seems new.

Just had a look on their web site, some pre owned games are more than new.

Sacred 3 for PS3, £4.99 new, £12.99 pre-owned laugh

The problem is here they have total monopoly of the High Street having basically killed of everybody else.

If you don't like online shopping and retailers such as Amazon and Shopto you have little choice but to use them.

Yes Supermarkets sell games but there stock is minimal at best and only Games like Cod do they have plenty of stock of.

I have been to a supermarket on many occasions to pick up a AAA game and on a lot of occasions they haven't had it in or they had sold the limited stock.

Game to me are used basically as a trade in post and nothing more.

yeah complete insanity.

I was only on the site as I had £8 of reward points about to expire so had to find a cheap game to spend it on.

funny enough game always seem to be low on stock which is no surprise to me given they want people to buy the used games (more profit for them).

So e.g. the example above when the £4.99 goes out of stock the £12.99 used becomes the only option.
