Buying new releases is getting more and more expensive... :(

MS3: about 250 USD
MS4: about 300 USD
ROTD: about 325 USD

With a strong price of the yen against a weak'er' dollar the price will be a little higher

Apparently most stores (possibly including the Neo store) have taken a loss to sell Slug 4 at $299. Not much of a loss but a loss nevertheless of around about 10usd

So if shawn has sold 150 Us Slug 4's, that measn he is down around 1500usd

I am gonna wait until the Neo store has it for pre-order or at least see what price Shawn wants for ROTD :)

I don't understand why he would sell something at a loss like that.

Don't worry, stores didn't take a loss. When you buy a couple of hundred copies of a game for resale, the distributor doesn't charge you the Japanese retail price...

Hmm... I think I'll try putting my soul up for auction. Do people actually buy souls?? <img src="graemlins/help.gif" border="0" alt="[Help]" />

totally sure this is what the companies were paying - hopefully shawn will read this thread and comment

I agree that getting hundreds will bring the price down, but...

Shawn can you let us know how much it was costng you per item from you distributor not per hundred (Metal Slug 4) :(

Why would Shawn tell you or us this? <img src="graemlins/shame.gif" border="0" alt="[Shame]" /> As a middle man, my mark - up is my business and I have never known a "Business Man/Woman" to tell his/her customers this. But lets see if Shawn answers you- "Just my 2 Cents" And trust me people do not sell things at a loss UNLESS they really need too.

07-05-2002, 05:57 PM
WTF

I'm not asking shawn what his mark up is

In fact its the opposite if he is buying them in at 310usd he is losing money

Thats what i want to clear up

I'm going to try to wait for the Neo Store to offer a pre-order offer... I must be patient...

I would get Rage of the Dragons if it wasent $330! Damn, that's expensive. When are new games gonna be in at least a nice medium price like $150? Of course I wish the games would be $50 or $100, but that isn't going to happen anytime soon.
