This is just a case of people who waited far too long to finish a game who are pissed at themselves for not trading them sooner looking for someone else to blame besides their own procrastination. Simple as that.
If I remember correctly, that's what GS charges for generic HDMI cables once they buy em for $4.40 apiece after 10% PUR bonus, which is the ONLY bonus that applies when trading in accessories and consoles.
So they make a nice $15.59 profit per cable.
Like I've been saying for a while, someone needs to open up a chain called Only Cables and sell just that at the store. Imagine all of the people who were gonna buy a $100 Monster brand cable at BB who would be grateful for being able to buy one for $2-5 a pop instead? You'd make a killing.
You don't understand how overhead works?
