I mean Mass effect 3 is only 3 weeks old and its gone down to £24 already! thats almost half the retail price in just 3 weeks, i bought Mass effect day 1 for full price and have not actually got round to playing it yet so now i just feel ripped off big time (yes i am an idiot)
If they can afford to sell games at that price and still make profit then why not sell at that price in the first place, i realise obviously they want to make as much money as they can but selling it cheaper would get much more straight sales.
And game developers wonder why so many people buy pre-owned, its not because we don't want to support the developers, the price for new games is just too much especially when there are loads of new games all coming out, i mean £40 for a game that most likely will last about 8 hours is quite a big deal.
If retailers sold new games a little cheaper then they would make more sales and earn game devs more money, instead of people picking it up 2nd hand or just renting it which then makes devs do stupid things like pass codes.
And yeah i know people just say well if they sold it at a cheaper price day 1 then people would still moan saying make it even cheaper now this price is too much, because lets face it we all want to get games as cheap as possible, but i honestly think if they started sellings games at £10 or £15 cheaper then sales would go up and the 2nd hand market would not be as big an issue.
I know this is a subject thats brought up a lot and will not change but just wanted to share my thoughts
