    $60US is like $5500 for a brand new game that is good, but 8000+ for a brand new game that is 2-3 years old is not good, if u can get it overseas then check gamestop and get yo ur stuff preowned if not then u can link crimfatale in the classifieds he sells games at a very reasonable price especially the older stuff

    honestly if it is a game i really want the $60 is not gonna stop me and anyways now a days you get more for your money in terms of dlc and loot, a free hat or sticker or something, and there are pre-order bonuses like $10-$15 off as well as access to special items in game, just lil things like that and there is always the preowned route or even amazon

    A dude in a thrift shop tried to sell me NBA Live 2003 for the gamecube for $4000. That game has been there for 5 years. The problem is shops don't mark down their prices on old merchandise like in the US. Hence you will see old games selling for New or Near New prices. If you are patient you can wait and buy it from somebody used. Otherwise save your money and buy less games.

    DLC is not more for your money. I guess gone are the days when improvements to the game cost nothing whilst expansions were huge additions worth buying. Special items in game mean nothing to me. If I didn't have to ship console games down I would buy preowned easy. PC games can be got on steam but those still cost as much as retail (pretty retarded). Digital downloads costing as much as retail when retail stores are already downsizing PC game shelf space is just another example of how stupid these companies are.

    If you want to game often you better have good cash flow or links (or pirate)
