I couldn't believe it today when I went to my local gaming store. The prices have really dropped. Since this war on Iraq started, everything is getting cheaper or extremely expensive (hence car prices). Not only that, if you go to Funco Land or EB Gaming, they are filled with preplayed games!! I remember when I first went there, they only had a small area for preplayed games, now its whole shelf full for all systems! Today I got NFL 2k1 for DreamCast Pre-Played for only $1.99!!

Is it just my area.. or is this happening everywhere?

Post your comments here. :roll:

Excuse my ignorance, but are there not many diffrent countires that use the dollar. Or am I missing what the currency symbol is?

My guess for the low prices on pre-plays would be two-fold:

1.) Supply and demand. There probablly are more people bringing games in to sell to the retailer then vice-versa.

2.) Ebay. You can pretty much find any title for any system listed on Ebay over any given 2 week period. Plus, many sell for dirt cheap, and I can get it sent to my door! This has to put a dent in retail sales of used games.

I guess, just enjoy the current state of cheap used games! :roll:
