Well, so much for that. I put Far Cry 3 in my Xbox and it wasn't reading it. At all. Kept saying "Open Tray". I opened and closed the tray 3 or 4 times and it refused to read it. I tried my copies of Halo 3 and 4, Borderlands 1 and 2, and Assassin's Creed III and they all read fine. I opened up my Xbox and cleaned it anyways, and, to no surprise, it STILL doesn't read it. I tried it in my brother's Xbox and it didn't read in that one either. So I got a lemon copy of Far Cry 3 and I am NOT happy about it. :headache:

Well, judging by all of the stickers on the thing, I'd say that's a pretty accurate theory. I borrowed a buddy's copy just to make sure my Xbox isn't being stupid. It's not. It's fine. I take too much care of that Xbox for something to just :-# up like that.

Yeah i had amazon send me one before and gamefly more common for me. I guess testing stuff costs them to much time. I bet people trade in new looking games that are dead from resurfacing them and bet amazon pays them without testing. I am saddened how amazon is getting... I only hope they realize this before it gets even worse. I am on the fence with them but else can i really go why i still buy alot. I bet they cut corners to do there prime streaming stuff. There still rocks but when will that be hit now?

Yep, I paid $80 (~$120 adjusted for inflation) for Final Fantasy III when it came out back in '94.

NES games were $40-50 back in the 80's, which is about $80-90 today. Also, consider the amount of work that goes into a game nowadays compared to the 8-bit era, and tell me games aren't a bargain nowadays.



To be fair companys can now sell DLC to make up for further losses. Don't think it costs Activision $50 a year to make the maps they will be putting out, or MS for some cars in Forza Horizon.

Heads up everyone... If anyone one see a new super mario bros U in AWD wihtin the next couple of weeks for 36$ use caution when buying..... I bought one to get my wii u game collection up and to give my niece a game to play....But it would not get past the startup screen.... the disk had some "white stuff" along the edge of the disk and the center circle of the disk.... i removed it by wiping off...CD was in VERY GOOD condition.... i think probably had a minor scratch or 2.... Its in the box and will be picked up by fedex or UPS (forgot) tomorrow.... I google'd and found that some mario bro's had cd defects and wouldnt go past the loadup screen.... Kind of sad because I cant fnd any deal on that game similiar in price range ...... Anyways makes me wonder if they even LOOK at the items for more than a second

Comparing production costs of the actual software then and now is laughable. Back then, yes, cartridges cost more to produce, but games also had far lower production budgets, far less staff, programmers ,etc. Today, the media costs pennies, but you're looking at $20M+ budgets. GTA4 had a budget of $100M.

The size of the consumer base is a big reason for the differences in the budgets, though. $1billion profit margins were unfathomable then (even if it were adjusted for that time period). The number of staff & programmers are correlated to the size of the audience, too, no?

Comparing any aspect of gaming then & now is still pretty unfair, imho (too many variables).

Damn there was a 38$ one I was thinking of buying but its gone now..... If that one on the 26th is seriously mine ...that is effed up on the part of Amazon... Especially since I spoke with them on Chat to let them know I was returning and the reasoning why.... They need to start letting us know if these items have been checked or not

I can tell you they don't for sure. I got Paper Mario Sticker Star yesterday and it had a gift receipt to GS inside. Seems no one bothered to check it.

I get wrong game inside recently and hitman prof was used with bonus disc and no game disc.

My con artist neighbor did trade in to amazon on a ce and kept disc and left a bonus disc only and got credit and was before xmas. Sucks people know how to cheat the system and it disgusts me.

We should write cag on the cover art on the backside. They are jusf getting worse... I contacted amazon about how people doing evil things and they copy and paste reply to me... I hope amazon wises up and the person in charge of this stuff gets fired cause it is losing them alot of money.
