Do Walmart clearance prices ever go up or is Brickseek being weird for me? I had been looking at a game that Brickseek said was only available at a few stores in the area but I never bothered to look for it. Weeks later, Brickseek is saying it's at a lot more stores but the price went up.

Thought the controller for $21.91 was a good deal but this takes the cake.

For that price I would go full on oprah and give them away at work.

But then they'd say, "Sweet, thanks! What games should I get for it?"

 

And you'd have to say, "Well, there's this God of War clone literally called Godfall. Then there's a Spider-Man game...and then everything else is a port or remake."

 

And they'd go home and list it on ebay for $2000 like the rest of the scumbags.

I wouldn't call the people reselling "scumbags". Now if this was a necessary item like medication, yeah.. but otherwise, they're just taking part in capitalism. Consoles are a luxury item, and no one is forcing anyone to pay those prices. If someone is silly enough to want to buy a console at a purchase point well above MSRP when very few games exist for the system and knowing that there could be issues that prevent them from playing, then let them do so. It's their money to spend.

There's a fine line between opportunist and scumbag.  I dont disagree with what you said but there's a reason the U.S. has laws about monopolies and price gouging. I know this is neither of those situations but "just taking part in capitalism" seems like an excuse that gets thrown around a lot.  The guys that bought all of the hand sanitizer in their area, sold it for ridiculous prices and were later arrested said something similar.

There is a world of difference between hand sanitizer and video game consoles. I'm sorry that you can't recognize that.

While you are quite right that video games are and always have been a luxury and certainly not a necessity, I would also say that when you are talking about a very much artificially-created situation that leads to scalping it just seems really scummy regardless. It's not natural supply & demand. It's thoroughly contrived.

 

edit: I'm not interested or in the market for either a PS5 or a Xbox Series X so I have no horse in this race.

Did anybody receive their copy of Miles Morales for the discounted price? I thought they were cancelling mine but not only are they shipping me the game, they still sent me the gift card.

Actually this is the very essence of supply and demand.

Reading through this thread looking for deals leaves me pondering a single question...pro-scalper or anti-capitalist?

Or you could just wait like a couple weeks and not pay the markup?  Isn't this what CAG people do by conditioning?

 

The bad launch titles will be there later folks lol

 

If scalpers want to spend their limit one per customer in line or whatever online preorder they were lucky enough to probably only get one of if they didn't make a program to snap them up when they went live to make a few hundred bucks, they probably need the money anyway.  It isn't something people who have things like decent health insurance plans typically spend their time doing en masse.

It's fine if you don't. I do.

 

I literally have 10 Christmas presents I put together to give to those giving tree charities. Books, toys, sports equipment, clothing--all stuff I found on clearance at Walmart. And I have maybe 14 pairs of thermal long johns I bought for $1 each this past summer to give to the homeless shelter, in addition to all of the household goods I bought for them. This is the time of the year when you give, not take.

 

Don't need validation or justification to think people who create artificial shortages are scumbags. Likewise, nobody needs my apology for my candor about their selfish behavior.

Bad launch titles? These are 100x better than the PS4’s. For me demons souls is worth the price alone. Astro bot, miles morales, cod and assassins creed are all good too, not to mention there’s actual backwards compatibility with better performing/upgraded titles.

It's great to hear PS5's unremarkable launch is 100 times better than PS4's which had nothing to remark on and replete with the latest propaganda from Activision.  The upgraded port of Demon's Souls sounds nice, but I think the experience of the upgraded 11 year old Demon's Souls will be just as fresh a few weeks from the PS5 launch, unless you're afraid of spoilers or something.

 

I could see a valid reason for wanting a PS5 on launch day if you're afraid later models won't be backwards compatible any more, PS3 sure dropped that in a flash, it is Sony I guess.

Yeah the only way I would pick up a launch model is if they pull the same nonsense as with the ps3.

Yep, there is a pop up message when you go to the site now that says their dev team is working on it.

Blame the companies who produce limited stock then. They've known for generations now that people are buying consoles and re-selling them. I'd hardly say that the people doing the reselling are "selfish" either. Now if they were able to buy multiple consoles, then I could see that as being a selfish act, but they're limited to one AFAIK.

Looks like it's currently $10 at Best Buy for PS4 (XB1 is out of stock online), if you don't want to go browsing the local Walmarts.
