Tsutaya Shinjuku is having a fire sale on used copies of Metal Gear Solid 4 where you can buy a pre-owned copy for a mere 2,480 yen. Even with the economic downturn that’s still only $24.50. A brand new copy at the same store goes for 6,980 yen ($69), a break from Konami’s suggested retail price of 8,800 yen ($88). Oh, and if you’re planning to sell your copy of Metal Gear Solid 4 don’t bother in Shinjuku.
Only 500 yen ($5) after four months?! That’s less than a bowl of ham and butter ramen. And I thought Gamestop prices were bad…
Just for a fair comparison the same store will pay you 3,800 yen ($38) for Compile Heart’s recent Cross Edge, 1,200 yen ($12) for Dynasty Warriors: Gundam, and 2,500 yen ($25) for Animal Crossing: Wild World which is almost three years old.
