@Stereoman: No, what you stated was

Dont rant on Game
you guys there in UK and NA should be happy , you get the 3DS anyhow for much lower prices.
jeeeshh its like you get a 3Ds plus 3 free games lol ....
not so in other countries ...
so Game sounds still as a good shop as any gaming shop for me , and if you dont want to get involved in such offers just dont buy preowned stuff.

if you'd said what you just said in reply #26 instead, i wouldn't have bothered, as that was firmly focused on the original post in question as opposed to looking as if it were directed at some of the other things that've been said so far in this thread.

@Stereoman: ... because getting something cheaper than someone else in another country magically makes all the other, more pertinently offensive business practices okay. i suppose i also shouldn't bother mentioning it when a local restaurant chain consistently gets my orders wrong (because that food, filled with things i'm allergic to or not, would easily cost two or three times as much somewhere in the world) or when certain auto repair chains charge two or three times as much as the local guys and constantly try to get you to have them fix crap that doesn't need fixing because they know they can get away with it (because there are people in other countries who can't even afford cars, let alone having them repaired and/or serviced regularly). Duly noted!

They probably are, what's to stop them from doing so?

Personally, i despise GAME, their in-store pricing is disgraceful and i’ve had instances in the past where i’ve bought (supposedly) new games from them, only to find they had existing save files on them.

They take the opportunity to screw people over, whenever.

sounds like a British Gamestop, then — i've heard of the 'save files on supposedly new games' thing popping up every so often from GS before, and they've got some shady practices of their own depending on the store and manager(s) involved (loaning out games to employees and selling them as new afterward, refusing to sell games in their original shrink-wrap, giving crap for trade-in value and reselling the same games at nearly-new prices, etc. and so forth). still, as James says, 'probably doing' isn't the same as 'actually doing', y'know? we can assume the worst, but there's no knowing for sure without proof.

The only one losing is Nintendo. Instead of selling two new 3DS systems, Game buys one and then makes pure profit selling that one pre-owned.

But that's the beauty of the pre-owned market I guess.

how are they making pure profit? they already paid out of pocket for it, and they're selling it as pre-owned, not new (new they're 196-ish there, so discounted for pre-owned status they'd probably be about the same price as they paid for it at the other store). they can only hope to sell something else along with the Tesco-bought 3DS (games, accessories, etc.) in order to turn any kind of real profit this way.

normally, you would be right about the pre-owned market, but this isn't really the same 'give the customer maybe half of what they paid for it and then sell it almost at the same price as new' deal, y'know?

He's got a day job and his own IRL stuff to deal with, same as all the rest of us do. he's got to juggle that along with other behind-the-scenes projects to actually keep the site up and running as well as the eventual promised front-of-house site upgrades. your continued patience is much appreciated. :3
