This is a price sticker that I was removing from a copy of Animal Crossing I picked up at a local thrift store. The sticker is from an EB Games (owned in Canada by the lovely assholes at GameStop). What really baffles me here is the original price. $69.99 for a GameCube game? Circa 2001? That is total madness. Adjusted for inflation, even though the game is only 11 years old, that price jumps to $86.34!
I purchased Animal Crossing in the summer of 2001 for my girlfriend (now wife), although it soon dug it’s adorable claws into me just as deeply, but I certainly don’t remember paying $70 for the game. I thought that 1st party GameCube games were all priced at $54.99… But I guess not?
