Great game, best in the telltale series in my opinion (but i do rather like Batman so might be slightly bias)

Apologies to buzz, only now so I noticed that this deal was posted last week.

​First episode on disc, the rest needs to be downloaded through the game.

Is this not the one that's £11.99 on PlayStation store just now?

If so why pay £2 more for it?

With physical copies you can trade it in.

It's only the first episode that's on disc and the rest you have to download anyway so I can't see any resale prices being great for long especially as it's a cheap game to start off with.

I'm sure any trade-in price will cover the extra cost of the physical copy. Just bought, thanks!

CEX currently pay £10 cash or £14 voucher

The HUKD massive loves a physical copy. Finish the game then feed the parasites at CEX. Personally I'd rather keep the game.

excellent, so it has resell value while digital doesn't

I'm looking forward to the death of the disc. Surely it's more cost effective to sell content digitally anyway i.e. removing overheads like packaging and shipping? They just need to sort out their Day 1 prices. No one pays RRP.

Something doesn't sit well with me about recouping the cost of a game - and CEX making money in the process. And ultimately several people play one copy of a game, so the publisher/developer loses out. If a game is good, you shouldn't have any reservations about investing money in it. In what other facet of life do you expect to enjoy something for free?

guess we shouldn't have a second hand market for anything then- not everyone can afford full price game or equipment. some may buy a preused game but then buy DLC.

also, the seller will use the money from selling to buy new equipment and games and so keeping the market healthy.

Telltale Games are fun but have zero replay value. So I can see the appeal of trading in and having played it for £4, rather than £14 and never playing it again. That's £10 to put towards a game that has replay value. Seems sensible to me.

What about cars, houses, electronics, furniture and other things everyone resells where the manufacturers lose out?

Apples and oranges. A car, for example, has a lifespan. It doesn't matter who owns the car during that lifespan. Also, cars generally depreciate - massively - in value.

Games, on the other hand, are an experience; that's what you're paying for. Yet people expect to recoup the cost of that experience, at the specific expense of the publisher/developer.

Imagine you could go to the cinema and subsequently sell the experience to someone else. 1. Why should you be able to make your money back? And 2. Why shouldn't the buyer pay directly for the experience, to the benefit of the industry?

There are people here who would gladly pay £30 for a game, finish it, sell it for £30; pay £30 for a game, finish it, sell it for £30; pay £30 for a game, finish it, sell it for £30... If everyone behaved like that, the industry would be in ruins.

Similarly, I pay for a cinema pass, Sky TV, Netflix... But there are people who pride themselves on paying nothing for movies and TV (i.e. downloading illegally). These people are parasites, and again, if everyone behaved like that, there would be no movies and TV.
