Heads up: potential collector's item

As the result of a recent litigation these games will be recalled from retail soon.

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/n...--Destiny.html

I just wanted to give everyone a heads up these games may become collector's rarity if purchased new and sealed.

I just purchased 1 from amazon and the price as already gone up today by 10 dollars. It's insane actually.

It will probably take anywhere from 10-20 years before you start to see any real price hike but I figured what the heck. Might be worth the risk.

This is a pretty unique case. Never heard of a court ordering a videogame developer to recall and destroy copies.

Edit PRICE TRACKER:

11/9/12: cheapest price $14 new on amazon - rose to $24 that evening
11/10/12: cheapest price $48

The guy at Gamestop does not have even the vaguest idea what he's talking about. Online stores pulled it immediately. Retail stores are in the process of removing if it's not out already.

I got mine used for $1.50 from Gamestop.

i'm starting to think soulreaper is a little more correct. gamestop still has new and used copies on their website for 2.99/5.99 respectively.

Ebay still has a few copies available if people are still looking for this game, i manged to get my copy for 20$

If your on the fence i would make up your mind quickly as they will only become harder to find.

New copies should be out of stock now in most stores including Gamestop. The game was pulled from Games on Demand not too long ago.

Definitely a collectible item now.
