Yeah, I was surprised because Rodea was sealed and only $30. Maybe it's not as rare as it seems or the demand is just too low for it. In any case I was sure that once the version with both discs got discontinued that the price would go up like what happened with Bayonetta 2

EDIT: Also I dunno but I think when you buy a game with trade-in credits you don't pay any taxes (at least, in my area), and I read on various forums that this happened to some people who bought games at a different store (EB Games)
You're a fraudster DJ.
I heard it depends of which state/province you live in. In any case, if the store has to report profits they made to the government for tax stuff, then a trade-in means that either money was lost or nothing at all was lost (depending of if credits or real money was given back to the customer), and when the customer buys a new game with credits then the transaction doesn't involve any real money.

So I guess it might make sense that they didn't charge taxes (even though it's kinda using a loophole).

Same, it's quite uncommon and despite this, day one copies are sellng for a reasonable price, although they are priced much higher than the 3DS and standalone Wii U ports. (both sells for less than 20$, if not less...)
In twenty years though, it will surely increase in value.

You still cheated though. That money could have gone towards weapons being sent to Arabia Saudia, how dare you.

It depends I guess. The PS2 has many rare games that came out 10-15 years ago, yet only a dozen is worth anything decent. Even factory-sealed copies of Persona 4 still go for $10.
