Why did God Of War 3 drop in price so quickly? Not happy about this

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Was thinking about selling it back to gamestop but now I see you can by the game for 40 bucks new... This game just came out in march and is still new.

Also, I look up Yakuza 3 and noticed that game which came out before God Of War 3 is still at a price tag of 60 bucks new... I'm guessing the reason for this is Yakuza 3 is probably alot harder to get. Which means no way in Hell would I sell Yakuza 3 back to gamestop. Also I don't sell **** on Ebay, because ebay and paypal are *******s.

Everyone and their mom got GOW3 when it came out. Now the used channels are flooded, forcing down new game price?
That, or the new one just won't sell because again, everyone with a PS3 got the game the day it came out.
Just a guess.

i have noticed this before with other games.
some games that are out for a few months suddenly drop in price while some older games still hold their value.
its a demand issue.
if their is a low demand for a new game then the developers drop the price.
also as other answer if there is a flood of used games then most people will but the used game, therefore reducing demand for the new game.

and the stores on average will only pay you 50% of the selling price when you try to trade yours in, to keep up their profit margins

Nothing really new about a game price dropping. That's why I actually like to wait sometimes, so the price goes down before I buy it, if I'm short on cash.

Maybe they figured that they have reached their peak, and are trying to draw in new customers at a lower price point. Which would likely be a hard sale since it doesn't have any keeping power with like say a multiplayer.
