So I'm looking to buy a copy of Grand Theft Auto:San Andreas Xbbox. New is listed as $39.99. Used is $34.99. Prices are quoted from EB Games.

I think that used is better but my dad thinks to spend the extra $5 to go the new route.

What would the hive mind do?

TIA

you should be paying at most $20 for used titles.
i get used games a month or even less from release date for that price

There charging that much for a used game they got soem fucking issues and you need to look at another place.

If the disc is readable, it's the same shit as new. That said, five bucks aint shit.

Check ebay...35 bucks is a lot for a used disc, unless it is rare and out of print...

I have a $24 and change credit from EB Games...I traded my old games there...I figure I will go there or Gamestop(they are the same people.) Thanks guys

FieroLoki: I called Game Crazy(owned by Hollywood Video) and they are charging the same. I figure it's the going rate.

If you can't get it half price, don't bother.

the disc might be scratched or missing info. Half price is all I'd pay, besides, it's been out for a year, should be a lot cheaper new by now.

I'm beginning to think game stores are fucking con-artists...out of 14 games I got 24 bux, and I got 19 before their added bonus because I had so many games. The least they gave me was a quarter.

I really want this game though so I am willing to pay the cash for it. If I can find it the cheaper, the better. I plan on calling several stores and finding out the price.

I slapped myself when I remembered you would have sent me one.

I appreciated the offer though. Really I did.

But if it's that slim a difference, I'd wait longer. The rare times I buy games for my Xbox, I wait forever until the prices go down.

I'm torn between:

1)Spending the store credit+ some out of pocket cash-and getting it in the extremely near future
or

2)Waiting till after the New Year.

Honestly Dee, it's a $5.00 decision. I make $50k decisions easier than you do over $5.

No biggie,just get a new one.

Rent it and play it for a couple weeks. It's not that great.
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 6:22:17 PM EDT
Definitely get the used one. It's a much better deal.

Gamestores used deals are only deals if nobody really wants the game. If it's in demand at all the used price is typically fairly laughable. (5 bucks off is very common from what I saw the other day)

Id save the $5

I just bought Halo 2 for $15.99 at a pawn shop works like it should no scratches or anything. That said for $5 I would buy new, but as far as my DVDs and Video games go I only buy what I want for a price that is acceptable to me. Which means usually no more that $15 for a video game and $6 for a DVD

Shit I am not to good for charity, if you have any M16A2s laying around that you are willing to give to charity I am your man.

I always buy used games or new older games. Only new game I bought recently is CIV IV. I can wait a few months to save a few bucks.
Link Posted: 12/28/2005 7:17:16 PM EDT
wait for a sale. I got it the day it came out for $29.99. I think there is a pack of GTA3, Vice City and San Andreas for $50 or something like that
