When tipster Peter sent me a small screenshot showing EB Games’ rather ambitious pricing for pre-owned boxes of Metal Gear Solid 4, I though Pete and his copy of Photoshop were having a go. Yet, when I visited the EB site to confirm, guess what I found staring me in the face? I took the above snap in case you’re having trouble.

A typo, obviously, but that doesn’t stop it from being funny. I’ve included a direct link below, but don’t be surprised if the error has been fixed.

Update: Yep, it’s all gone now.

Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots: Preowned [EB Games Australia, thanks Peter]


  • They’d obviously forgotten to mention that this particular copy was previously owned by Hideo Kojima himself.

  • It’s actually beause EB isn’t selling pre-owned copies of MGS4 yet, because they are doing a trade-in special. Trade it in before the 18th and you get $90 credit I believe it is. When they do start selling in the price will be updated, which I imagine will be $105.95.

  • I work at an EB games store in Victoria, and i can tell you that it won’t be taken down straight away because this price is a placeholder price while there is a special trade back deal on this game. Previously they used 0$ price point but i guess it was easier to accidentally give away a free copy then. This way there can be no mistake, Amusing nonetheless.
