Yeah the UK version of Suikoden sells very well. I sold a copy for £62 a couple of weeks ago.

That's at least slightly different though. They're obligied by the company to respect the preorder chain and to not reserve a new item for more than a week.

With the preowned stuff, if they buy it within the reservation period that's fine.

I nipped down to gamestation, who ALWAYS do decent deals for me, and told them about it, and asked if they had any. They were shocked that game were trying to actually SELL one. They gave me one for free! Just as Nintendo originally intended. A celebration of Zelda.
GAME are legally allowed to resell it as a traded in item. They do have Nintendos permission.

Honestly I'm surprised GS still had one. I've still got 2 myself (they sent 4 to a GAME owned store I worked at that didn't sell the cube at all)
