Was having a bit of a think about this this morning and I think it might be the final nail in the coffin as far as console gaming goes for me. I use to buy stuff on release date for €40-45 in HMV, play it over the week/weekend and trade it in for €33. GameStop and every other actual bricks and mortar game shop charge at least €55 for new releases and offer cack trade in value in Ireland. |
I could go back to ordering stuff off the internet but that doesn't fix the trade in issue. Might just upgrade my PC and go all download for cheap games.
Didn't think that one shop closing would do this to my hobby but I literally bought every single console and handheld game there because they were by far the best value.
