It is going to sit a LONG TIME if you have 10 people from podunk, North Dakota looking at it each day. I can't tell you how many stores I have seen go out of business following online prices, hell even Gamestop prices.
I deal with Pawn Shops like this. Skyrim comes in and the current going rate is 50.00, so 3 months later it sits there at 50.00. Price drops be damned.
Also, on the idea of Pawn Shops, just because some obscure BBC DVD Box Set is worth 50.00 on Amazon and eBay, that doesn't mean you're going to get 50.00 in Small Town South Carolina for it.
It amazes me how much I see this.
