I used to work for a company that paid me to do 'Retail Arbitrage'. I'd drive a Mercedes Sprinter around and spend (On average) between 4-6 hours at a time in a store and, assuming it was fruitful, anywhere between $2,500 - $5,000.


My personal record was at a Toys'R'Us; 9.5 hours (I was there from open to close basically) and spent just short of $22k.

We cleared 1.5m of profit in Q4 of 2012.

I had to quit though as my parents got ill and I had to take care of my younger siblings.


EDIT: Amazon FBA, btw.

I got my second “Like new” Death Stranding CE and it did have the game this time thankfully.

This time the returner just put all the pieces into the CE box without any of the cardboard guts to support it. The steelbook was loose in the box with the clunky plastic case.

The steelbook had a couple scuffs and a small dent. I want to assume that’s why it was returned but, it could be cause it was loose in the box.
The code worked, so maybe somebody dropped it at a fulfillment center?

I’m just going to chalk this one out to a clumsy porter and call it a day.

Good luck, DaShaka. I hope your’s come out okay.

Ended up taking a gamble with a Death Stranding CE marked as "Like New" for about $105. (They still have some with 20% off for some reason)

Box was a bit beat up, the original purchaser had literally just cut their labels off with a box cutter and slapped the return label on the outside of the CE box.

Contents were in great condition but, the asshole OP had taken the game and steelbook out! (Which is basically why I was buying the CE)

Promptly returned it, just wanted to warn anyone considering one of these.
I ordered a second cause I really enjoy the game. If the second is a bust too, I'll probably just give up.  :cry:

Personally, I just kinda thought that it had a bigger distribution than I guess that it actually did. TBH, I'm not that 'in the loop' with physical print outside the US though. Just a poor guy tryin' to get some physical games for 'cheap'. I checked a couple places as well and came to the same conclusions that you guys did.


I have been tracking Moss and Astrobot for a minute. Thanks for the Heads-up!


Glad to see I came back to some helpful info.

I mostly lurk and always appreciate the info everybody freely shares. Thanks again!!

Does anybody know exactly when Physical copies of Superhot jumped up in price? I feel like a couple months ago, they were going for 25$USD TOPS. Now, I can't find a copy sub $60.


EDIT: Checked sold on Ebay, April 29th sold for $21.26 with Free Shipping. Seems like the bigger stores sold out and now smaller sellers are capitalizing.
