i buy used games too, i just don't try to convince myself or anybody else that buying used can help the developer when it doesn't

You people are so lost. I suggest researching before you post such things.... It is so sad most people are doh and lazy these days.

Buying Inversion new over used isn't going to help a developer. It's like giving a kid who fails a test an "A" because you felt sorry for them. Sure the grade looks better, but it isn't going to encourage them to try any harder the next time. Why the hell are we having this argument anyway? It's not piracy, it perfectly legal in every sense of the word. I am a cheap ass and I'm not going to apologize or feel bad about it. If the price is the same, I'd buy new every time, but as it is, there is usually a huge discrepancy between the new price and the Gamefly used sale price. Thats why this thread exists. There's plenty of other threads for those looking to save the world from used games so find one instead of hanging out here so you can judge people who have a different point of view.
Now with that said, anyone know what time today's new sale goes live, assuming there is one?

By the way, Men in Black is NOT worth $15...it's really bad. really really bad. I played it for the platinum recently and, though it only took about 8 hours to do, I almost quit because it was so awful and un-fun.

Good deal for Gravity Rush. If I didn't own it already, I'd get it for that.

Thanks for the tip. Had no clue a men in black game could be poorly done.


If you already knew then you didn't have to bother reading his advice.

Side note on Gravity Rush: It's $18, the same as a 3 month subscription to Playstation Plus, which includes Gravity Rush and 5 other Vita games.

I have no interest in Plus. Gravity Rush worth it at $18 or does anyone have bets on $10-$15 within the next few months?

considering it's free on Playstation Plus, it'll drop. Just get Plus for $18 and you'll have endless amounts of other games free for the same price.

since you're "not lazy" i suggest you post your "extensive research" here, i loved to see a link where a developer says he's "happy" to know people are buying his game used

Actually, I have seen developers say this. Their reasoning was that it generates more interest in their products for some people who would not have considered it otherwise and helps sell DLC or future games in the series, etc. I believe it was Randy Pitchford of Gearbox, but I have heard others too. Whether or not it is genuine is anyone's guess.

Gravity Rush is a great game for $18 (even better, $13 if you have the coupon). The combat is frustrating, but the gravity mechanics are ambitious and worth checking out.

Gravity Rush is an awesome game, highly recommended. But I actually highly recommend you sign up for PS+ rather than buy the game from gamefly.

Also, the PS3 version of London Olympics is currently going for $43 used on Amazon. No idea why this game is retaining so much value.

The deals tonight are so undesirable that no one has bothered to update the OP. Gravity Rush is a decent deal, but I get the impression so many people have Plus now that very few are interested.

I'd say Birds of Steel for $8 is a good deal if you're itching for a flight sim on console. Also Gravity Rush for $18 for a physical copy is good if you don't wait to have to upgrade proprietary memory cards for your vita.
