    any one notice the price hike on the games now!!

    So i asked the guy working there why are the games now $70 he told me "its because of the recession" i told him your joking right! he said " no it because where not making any money"

    So there is a recession and they hike up the prices for the games:eek3:

    If any thing they should be going down?

    amazon.ca

    most of the time the popular games have a 5 to 10% discount plus free shipping over $30 or $40 orders i think.

    I questioned why COD4 was $69.99 when I was at EBs the other week. I got the whole economy speech too. FUCK paying 70+tax for a game.

    I know a few people with hacked 360s but with the whole red ring of death thing, your warranty is fucked if you hacked it.

    hmmm.... wonder if its a microsoft conspiracy to deter hackers????

    No shit, but when I want to get rid of a game and have my eye set on another one, I still go there. I'm impatient as hell.

    Also, trying to sell anything worth something on kijiji is a fucking pain in my ass. Bunch of asshats low balling and asking me stupid questions. I guess it's alright if you're not in a rush to sell something though.

    Totally unrelated.

    You can even play on live with a hacked 360 now, so I've heard.

    I haven't bought anything from EB in years. I stopped going there for games because they open all their fucking new copies and keep them behind the counter. Do they still do that (open them all)?

    I don't mean the RRoD is related to the hacked 360s. i mean if you have a hacked 360 and happen to get the RRoD, forget about sending it back for warranty.

    and yes, you're right, you can't play on live with a hacked 360

    You can play on XBL with a Hacked 360. However if they catch you, which they can, they will ban something with your console that won't allow it to connect.

    No. you go grab a copy of the wall bring it to the cash, and then give you one that is sealed behind the glass case

    so why not just hack your 360 so you don't have to buy games...but pay for live. Im pretty sure 50 bucks a year is doable :rolleyes:
