Is Gamestop jacking up the price of the Zapper?

Hmm… I could have sworn at E3's Nintendo Press Conference the Zapper was going to have a retail price or $19.99. Gamestop thinks otherwise because they are selling it for $5 more. Yes, the news about Link's Crossbow Training as a pack in game is exciting, but that's no reason to tack on an additional Lincoln to the price.

    That’s not too surprising after seeing them do the same thing to all of SNK’s PS2 Anthology releases.

    Weren’t they selling Wii-point cards overpriced by $5 as well?

    I think they like to charge 5 bucks for some DS games as well, and every other place its less than 5 bucks. Overall, yep, they’re jacking up prices.

    This is interesting that they’re doing this on an accessory. The GS/EBs stores where I live actually don’t carry very many accessories on any system.

    As Noun said, they added 5 bucks to the recent SNK games, as well. The AoF collection was later reduced to it’s $19.99 price a little later on.

    The “special offers” on games they have, especially on trade-ins, are a joke.
    “Sell us your old DS and pay only $99 for a DS Lite!”.

    AOF Collection had an MSRP of $15, they jacked it up to $20. They do this with all budget games. You know. The games almost nobody wants.
