Agreed, I've got to a few pawn shops by my house and their prices are pretty high. Sometimes they even have the games at $50 (newer releases). I also don't think I could buy a console from a pawn shop. I drove a friend so she could take her 360 in, and she did the towel trick on it to make it work temporarily so she could sell it. The things you do to afford your rent.

Most of the ones around here are like that, except for EZ Cash Super Pawn. Its a great chain, they have blanket prices on each system, last gen is $5 and usually willing to go $3, wii, 360, ds, and psp are $10 but they will usually take 8, and ps3 for some reason are 15 but they will take 10.

The non-super chains around my place are the most ridiculous prices I've seen. I sat there looking through ps1/xbox games before I realized they had 19.99-24.99 on all last gen systems and 29.99 on all current gen systems.

Then again..... EZ Pawn has POTC PS3 for 14.99 and it has a 6.99 BBV tag on the front. That's not the only one where the store it was originally sold from had it for less than half the marked price :(

well, a few days ago, I hit up some gamestops and got 5 copies of Ski Doo Snowmobile for $5 each(all in store credit), and traded them into Game Crazy today. After the $5 trade bump, I got $18 each for them. So I used the buy 2, get 1 free coupon from the Madden coupon book, and got Killzone 2/NCAA Football 10/Wolfenstein. Then traded in Wolfenstein and used the 30% trade bump coupon from the Madden book, so I got $39 in SC for that, and put that towards Beatles Rock Band, using the $10 off Beatles Rock Band coupon from the book. Still had $2 left in store credit when it was all said and done.
So....basically

Turned 5 copies of Ski Doo into
NCAA Football 10
Killzone 2
Beatles Rock Band
