    Stop me if this has been said already...

    I was in my local gamestop today buying Zack & Wiki and Mario Galaxy (i know, LONG WEEKEND) when I stumbled upon the used game section. Taking a gander at the Wii section I spotted on the bottom shelf a used copy of Wii Play... FOR $30!!! WHAT?!?!?!?

    We all know the package costs $50, which includes a $40 remote. How can they get away with selling it for $30! I asked the guy if he was serious or if it was some kind of mistake, he says nope, people will pay. Then I asked him how much can I sell you my Wii Play disc for??? He goes, 10 bucks store credit. Ridiculous!

    I can understand the few people out there who bought 4 remotes before the wii play came out, but please, don't spend $30 on Wii Play! Zack & Wiki (from the little I have played already and what I have read) is much more fun, will teach you more about the remote, AND encourage more 3rd party developers to create games for the Wii!!~!

    Gamestop is always a ripoff when you sell games, but i do it anyway cuz ebay has scammers and they blow.

    Ah, that's what feedback is for. Go eBay, you'll get so much more.

    One time I saw a black guy and a white guy went to sell their games and they had the same amount of games and the white guy got $80 and the black guy got $30!

    They sell the things depending on demand and what people are willing to pay. So since people are stupid... :p

    Maybe its different depending where you live since certain things are in demand over other things.

    and it's not like you're getting a deal off used games either....

    a used twilight princess still runs for 45 bucks, and it's already been a year. sheesh.

    Yeah, Gamestop is just ripping people off left and right, but ebay is the one that blows.....

    To hell with brick and mortar stores. If I can purchase something online, I usually will. Before I left to go work overseas, I would buy most of my electronics/comics/software/games online, even after shipping charges I ended up paying WAY less then if I were to go to any store.

    Ebay is great.....if you understand how to use it. The feedback system is there for a reason. If someone owns an ebay shop, and they have 1k+ in positive feedback, then you're not going to get burned. Period. All the cases I've come across from people whining about it were from buyers who bought from sellers that had no positive feedback, or negative feedback that was equal to or higher then their positive feedback (both of which shouldn't be done).

    Hell, I taught my own mother AND grandmother how to use ebay, and they've NEVER had an issue.

    The only time I purchase at a store is if I want it THAT DAY....which I'm usually never that impatient for.
    Ebay ftw!

    Selling Wii sports doesn't make sense because every Wii owner has it. Unless someone lost it or broke it, but thats a rare thing. Unless Gamestop bought it for like 75 cents.
