These fall in between, skewing more towards the hot side. They're not ZOMG I MUST LINE UP AT THREE AM hot, but they're by no means bad deals either.
And not everyone has access to The Source and Sears. For example, the closest Sears to me is, if I'm not mistaken, the very one you bought your 3DS at , the Eaton Centre. Which is a near two hour trip away.
And as for your "how do you think companies feel when you buy games for $1 at Wal-Mart" remark, they don't care one single tiny bit. They've long since been paid for those copies. It's a commonly held and very very inaccurate belief that distributors supply games to retailers on consignment. They do not. They are paid for up front. In other words, every single copy of a game you see in a store? The company's already got their money for it. If Wal-Mart chooses to unload it for $1, THEY are losing money. But they'll make it back with all the other stuff you'll probably end up buying coming in to the store for cheap games.
Thought you lived in Toronto? Why does it take you 2 hours travel time to Eatons? Even my cousins who live in Agincourt take less than 2 hours to go to Eaton center. Even my uncle who lives by Square 1 takes less than 2 hours to get to downtown.
You have MULTIPLE stores in Toronto for THE SOURCE and a few Sears stores so you really don't have any excuses for not being able to find one. Just makes no sense. Someone in Sudbury has an excuse but not you.
Never said these were bad deals(seriously do you guys even read my posts) I just said they are regular sale prices, not good, not great. Nothing worth lining up for a hour to cash out for.
So many people ragging on buying used copies but when FS had them for cheap the same people were buying tons of copies?
Guess your principles goes out the door when there's a profit to be made huh? Not to mention re-read what the other person wrote above, so where does principle fit in to that equation? So I have to fork over another $5.00 from my pocket so companies like Activison who've already sold over 1 billion copies of a game can make even more money? Yea that makes sense. Why are you even here looking to buy games for cheap or trade in cheap games that rip companies like FS off?
I've bought 20 used games within the last few months. Keeping the argument that it's only $5.00 off that I am saving, that's $100.00 from my pocket that could have gone for something I need for my kids. Guess you don't have any huh? I can't throw money around like you, great for you but MOST people can't.
Anyways that's enough arguing, go waste your money,lol.
I've proved my point that some items have been either at these prices before or cheaper at another time which is the point of the forum, to save money. It's called Cheapassgamers not Cheapassmoralgamers. Whether you have the stores in your area or not isn't relevent because most people that are on this site don't live in small towns, miles away from any store.
