i went back to collect my Mass Effect trilogy only to find they have put it up a fiver from yesterday, AC3 is now 50, in line with the Wii U title and Family Guy has been reduced to 29.99, but they didnt have any


even the staff looked embarrassed.

anyway, they were trying to sell a Wii U 8gb to an older lady amd she was asking if she could buy a wiimote plus as well to use with it, the salesperson didnt have an igloo that that the 8gb has no sensor bar bundled

clueless, overpriced buffoons

Yeah..pure greed. My store was closed today so I'm thinking they've shut down. No great loss IMO.

I got my WiiU and games cheaper in game than most other stores

(i better not mention that here though even i could literally find examples of every other game shop charging more for some products than game do, are they 100% perfect no, no they are not but you aren't forced to shop from there and please just remember to praise them when you save money like i have)

I love how I work in GAME and customers inform me that decision made by head office (pricing) is somehow my fault.

Clueless buffons

It's on sale. If a game has a blue sticker (sale sticker) they will not drop the pre-owned price, as the new price will go back up.

Yeah knew it was on a deal but still a bit daft to have the more expensive pre owned one next to a new one that's cheaper.

Not criticising the local shop as like going in as the guys working there know about gaming

Yeah I agree that it's stupid. It's because Head Office state that all shelves must be full and pre-owned displayed as that's where they make big margins.

If know a mentioned it already but i feel i need to display there is a different side to the point on game

I just don't get why people moan ''oh its more in game'', ''oh they put the price up''

boo ****ing hoo, its called shopping, products are cheaper in different shops, we do not need a thread moaning about this everything it happens in game

putting prices up for the sake of it(the lad admitted that..)

1, a business is about making as much money as possible, labeling that as greed is just silly

2, 1 or 2 maybe but i doubt the entire staff is clueless considering how many former gamestation workers now work in game stores (and we all remember how much people on these forums loved gamestation even though it was the same as game)

3, i've bought every console since the PS2 (except the original xbox) in game or gamestation and not once did i staff member try to 'hard sell' me a warranty unless saying...
'would you like cover with that'
Me: 'no thanks'
'ok'
...is now a hard sell

4. nothing i can say about the last point it is silly to put prices up

My point being people seem to moan more because its game, i've seen preowned games that cost more than new copies in grainger games and HMV, i've seen prices go up in other shops but there is never a thread about that
