I was thinking about buying some of the DLC skins for gears of war 3 on ebay some people want anywhere from 10 to 80 bucks a code. Some people are even selling the Ice T skin from facebook for 6 to 10 dollars. Does anyone else know where to buy theses online?

because only a few stores have slipped codes. Once they hit the market in mass, prices will drop.

Theyre expensive now because only super impatient kids want it now (boosts the gaming ego).

Don't worry though, I think prices will drop significantly once the games out and codes get distributed. Right now only few have codes (how they have them? No clue) so they can charge out the a$$ for them.

Wow! Its really hard to pass up on that RARE card at such a bargain price!

Read the item description, its more laughable than the price.

Lol, what a joke for 80 bucks. For that much it should come with the game too.

I guess the only reason is the fact that this is the only way to get hold of them without actually buying the game. Having said that, for some prices, you may as well. It is ridiculous. I can imagine them going for more than normal if they are 'rare' or unobtainable any other way, but still the prices soar far too high in a lot of cases.

Why do they cost so much? I think this proves it. People will pay it.

Especially Xbox people.
