Amazon's Used Game Payouts Falling


Posted April 17, 2009 - By Stephen Johnson

Amazon LogoGaming website What They Play has taken a hard look at the hard numbers of the used game market, and determined that although Amazon initially offered competitive prices for their used games, they've since started paying less for played-out games than competitors Game Stop or Game Crazy.

Game Crazy offers the most money for used games, but has fewer locations than Game Stop. Amazon is available to all, and offers credit you can use to buying anything on the huge retail site, from garden hoses to books-on-tape. Each used game retailer seems to have its own advantages. The compar-o charts are below the cut.

Nintendo Wii GameStop Amazon Game Crazy
Super Smash Bros. Brawl $18.00 $14.75 $25.00
Animal Crossing City Folk    $18.00 $15.00 $22.73
Lego Indiana Jones $5.00* $9.75 $9.00

PlayStation 3 GameStop Amazon Game Crazy
Street Fighter IV                      $25.00 $24.00 $27.25
Little Big Planet $24.75 $13.75 $26.00
Fallout 3    $22.50 $17.25 $27.25

Xbox 360 GameStop Amazon Game Crazy
Dead Space $12.00 $15.50 $15.00
Left 4 Dead $17.00 $20.00 $27.25
Call of Duty: World at War     $18.00 $21.50 $22.73

Personally, I give my old games away to friends. This is not because I am generous. It is because I am way too lazy to either pack up my games and send them to Amazon or get myself down to Game Stop to drop 'em off.  Do you save all your games? Or do you trade them in? If you trade them, which service do you use?
