Default Score!!!!

I got Motorstorm: Pacific Rift for $37!

It's normally

$59.99-64.99 new

They had 3 used copies, 2 were at $59.99.

This one was at $37.99. It actually had the wrong price tag... it was really the Mercaneries 2 tag on it. I brought it to the counter at Gamestop anyways and it passed! I used my card that nets a 10% discount on used games and had a buck or two on it as well so I ended up paying $37.44.

That's a good score. I got mine on amazon, new, for $40 on that PS3 day they just had. It's a great game that I've, sadly, not had enough time to put a big dent into yet. I can tell it's going to be a fun, but frustratingly hard one haha.

Hit me up! I still need to race with bbm too -- maybe we'll all spin it up at some point

I also just got the ps3 bioshock for $36, new, yesterday from a vendor on amazon, and there is a vendor with the same deal for fallout 3 which I'm thinking about jumping on. I'm wondering if I should clear my backlog of games out first though because maybe fallout 3 will get even cheaper and I'll have something to play during the drought?

I'm also waiting for uncharted to go to $29.99 as I'm sure it will pretty soon, in time for Uncharted 2.

I tell ya what -- the gaming industry should figure out a way to pass on a bit more savings to us. For $60, I *REALLY* weigh my games purchase, and a lot of times talk myself out of it. But when a game is $30-$40 new, I'm usually all over it, I almost can't help myself

LOL, as part of a dev team I can see you thinking this, but it's no different then purchasing a used film or used book.

I generally always buy my games new, but Motorstorm (or any racing game in general) is not a game I want to buy at full price.

Hey, look at it this way. Some people wouldn't buy as many new games as they do if they knew they couldn't resell them and gain some cash. Also, the money that some people make off used video games goes toward new games.

I don't know, I personally don't like owning used things (i'm weird that way), which is unfortunate, because it's much cheaper to do things that way
