Does anyone know what price companies like Amazon and GAME buy games at, for which they sell for around £38.

So this:
http://www.amazon.co.uk/Call-Duty-Modern-Warfare-Xbox/dp/B0021AETNQ/

is being sold at a loss, that and a good proportion of the top 100, yeah right.

There are also bulk discounts applied at the end of a month and, considering the numbers that Amazon and Game order they may get 60% to 68% off rrp.

Dixon's (when they had store's) used to tell the distributors how much they'd pay for titles...
