    Most of these titles were already easy to get under 20$ (new), if not under 10$ (new or used), here in Canada. And I can't believe Sony was not already aware of that. Weird.

    You seriously think they weren't?

    The only ting there that really strikes my fancy is Resistance, since I haven't played it- but, $20 is, what, £14 or so? I can almost definitely find that cheaper used in local shop, and it might even help keep GAME in business.

    Yeh they could really have let them go for a tenner, I just picked up Heavenly Sword second hand for under a fiver. Definitely worth a look for that price if you haven't given it a go already.

    Is Sony even aware of what decade this is? I have seen about 100 or so used copies of Mag for $5 in those Gamestop bins. If they lowered the DL game price to $5-$10 that would be money going straight into their pocket. As it stands Gamestop is going to do what they always do and lower their prices even more so thus leaving Sony out in the cold.

    that's it sony. drive down those used prices. i'm waiting at the bottom.

    can already get the majority of those games for under £10 at retail if you shop around, not really that special imo.
