Retailer GameStop has responded to Best Buy's plan to price match new games at used game prices as expected—by slashing prices on used games. But like Best Buy's pricing scheme test, this is extremely limited.
These prices come from a West Jordan, Utah area GameStop, the same location that Best Buy is testing its "buy new games at used prices" plan. The deals are fantastic, slashing $US10 to $US15 off GameStop's regular used prices for most of these titles, including relatively new releases like Red Faction: Guerrilla, Prototype, UFC 2009 Undisputed, inFamous, The Conduit and Fight Night Round 4.
In fact, those price drops on used games affect dozens of titles, prices that would make it unattractive and unprofitable for Best Buy to continue with its plan. The real attraction here is for the West Jordan, Utah gamer, who can probably snap up new copies of tons of games at below wholesale prices.
According to the flyer that we were forwarded by a reader, these prices are in effect at the West Jordan GameStop only until August 31. If you're in the market for just about anything, might be worth heading to GameStop and grabbing one of these flyers, Utahans.
