Quick question: ballpark, how much do you think a video game costs? Also, you realize that retailers often do sell items at a loss, right?
They would have cost me $40, and I know for a fact that amazon gets a much better discount than my store did.
If this is referring to me, as I suspect it is, I stated I wasn't mad. I wouldn't buy Epic Mickey, because no review I looked at or person I know said it was a good game, and I already have Kirby. I said it'd be nice if it was a lightning deal. Instead of having a relevant comment on what I've actually said, you offer ridiculous, unrelated arguments, all the while calling other people stupid. You get shot down, yet you continue.
Honestly I have no idea. I think maybe because stupidity bothers me. It's a "developmental need", as they say in the year end review meetings. I just don't understand how someone can get upset at Amazon cause they didn't get in on a deal. It just confuses and perplexes me. When I miss a deal, I blame myself for being slow or wishywashy. I don't blame Amazon/Newegg/Gohastings/walmart.
Also, there are a bunch of people on CAG who (it seems to me) are in the industry (and not the "next in line please" role), if you take the time to listen to them, you can learn a thing or two about how these things work. To me, that's helpful in getting deals.
For example, if you understand that things "on sale" are limited in time or units (although really, i just that was common sense), you would be quick to snatch up the Epic Mickey, DKCR, or Kirby combo and you would be instead of and .
