Yesterday, I went to “Play-N-Trade” to check out a pre-owned title. My wife and I love playing action/adventure games together, but it’s hard to find one for two-players. Especially one that we like. The last game we played together was “Champions of Norrath“.
As we were browsing the Playstation Store, I downloaded the trial version of Diablo III:
After playing it for a bit, my wife and I decided that we liked it. But, the full version was $60. Well, we didn’t like it for $60. So, I decided to go to our favorite pre-owned game place, Play-N-Trade. I found the new game for $59.99, which was as I suspected. I went to the pre-owned section, and I found it! Yes! I turn it around, and there was the price sticker.
Are you serious, Play-N-Trade? A used pre-owned game, and you knock off $5? Seriously. Who do you think would buy this, with the new version only $5 more? Maybe my frustration was because I expected it to be cheaper, and now that it’s not, I’m disappointed. Am I the only one who thinks $5 off a pre-owned game is a slap-in-the-face?
