Most of these games you can get for $5 or less on Ebay.

Didn't these used to be 4 for $20? Can't we go back to that instead.

Some of these games were probably $5 or less at Gamestop before this sale started.

That was actually my first thought and then I thought, "No way they 4× the price." I should never underestimate Gamestop.

I really appreciate that you can get Prototype for only the PS3 and Prototype 2 for only the XB360.

I think that's the angle GS is going for; they want to acclimate people to the higher prices, then when the promo goes back to the previous one (in this case 4 for $20) people will be all happy. People already forgot about the 4 for $10, so GS is doing a good job of lowering people's standards of what is actually a good deal (4 for $20 isn't that great, but 4 for $10 is fantastic).

I've been playing through a stack of those games for the past several months. I remember buying Armored Core 4, Lair, Ninja Gaiden Sigma, Heavenly Sword, Resistance 1 and 2, Wolfenstein (the one with the mystical elements), Front Mission: Evolved, Tron, Crysis 2, Cabela's Dangerous Hunts 2011, Blacksite: Area 51, Soul Calibur IV, and Metal Gear Solid 4 for PS3 from those three for $10 and four for $10 sales. Good times.

Terrible list. 2007 wwe games and 2013 sports games, used for $10 each; must buy 4 or more to receive "discount".

Backwards compatibility - while great - is to blame for a lot of these price increases. As others have stated, if you want last-gen games go to eBay or other avenues.

I do think it is laughable that GameStop charges such a premium for a mediocre 360 game b/c it is backwards compatible.

This is unbelievably bad. I got Deus Ex HR on 360 for like $2.99 at GameStop just a few months ago.

This is unbelievable. I've defended Gamestop before, and found some great deals there, but they must think we are stone-cold stupid.

Welp... it's official, Gamestop finally realized dumping last gen games for $0.99-$4.99 a pop was a bad idea.

 

I can almost picture the board room conversation:

"Sir, nobody's buying our used PS4 and XBONE games for the jacked up prices we thought they would just because we're gamestop---they're all going to Best Buy and Amazon to get them cheaper for new. What should we do?"

"Used last gen seems to be selling well right now, let's up the prices on those! That ought to work!"

It just means it's going from 4 for $10 a few years ago, to 4 for $20 last year, and to 4 for $40 this year. So that means....... 4 for $80 next year!

Just once. Just once, would it kill them to include handheld games in these sales?
