I sold my Deadly Assassin's Code for $30.

1 British pound = 1.4342 U.S. dollars

18 x 1.4342 = $25.81

I made more money. Boom.

Congrats though, I did this with the past few games that I preordered.
I've made just over $200 with the codes from Assassin's Creed 2, Just Cause 2, Bioshock 2 and Red Dead Revolver.

Are you fucking serious? I didn't pay for anything extra to get it, it just came free because I preordered it. I didn't want it.

Someone else did, very badly; enough to pay me 50% of what the game cost me in order to get it because they didn't preorder their shit. Supply and Demand, motherfucker.

Call it awful if you want, I call it fucking genius.

Anyway, I turned around and bought a few decks of the Red Dead Redemption playing cards that were given out at the Midnight releases at Walmart and Best Buy stores using my profits.

i still plan on buying a deck of cards at some point... maybe two so i can play with one, and put the other one up for collecting purposes, even though i am pretty sure it won't be worth much more than what i paid for it in 10 years...

Oh, good one. The "you're on the internet so you must have no life" insult isn't moronic or unoriginal at all. You must, without a doubt, be a very important member of society, not at all a waste of the already barely valuable gift of life.

As is the case for everyone who takes issue with people who make them sad on the internet, you are one of two kinds of people:

You are exactly what you claim I am, and that is a lonely, pathetic basement dweller. You life is spent eating eight pounds of junk food per day, masturbating to anything you find online that's even remotely feminine, and wishing you had good looks and social skills. You continue to live with your mother until she dies of a combination of lung cancer and liver failure brought on by the chain-smoking and heavy drinking she used to cope with what a failure you are. Your mother mercifully dead and free of the living embodiment of failure she regretfully thrust from her loins, the bills start to pile up and you, unemployed and unable to pay these bills (of course), lose the house and everything in it. Somehow even more of a failure than you already were, you wander from place to place eating out of dumpsters and sleeping in your own filth until you finally die of AIDS, which you contracted from a diseased whore you scrounged up enough money to pay for, so you could finally lose your virginity while at the same time pretending that your mother was back in your life.

Or:

You are the type who was an athlete in high school, who was genetically doomed to be an idiot but managed to finish school and even get a college scholarship because you were so good at a worthless children's game. You went off to college with a suitcase full of polo shirts and condoms, the polo shirts, because you're a douche, and the condoms to prevent you from impregnating the dim-witted young college girls whom you could never touch without the aid of Rohypnol, a drug you refer to as "roofies" because you can neither spell or pronounce Rohypnol. You scrape by with borderline D's for the next four years, and leave the campus to go out into the real world where your realize you're not intelligent or talented enough to do anything of value with your life. Misery and minimum wage ensues for thirty years, then you blow your brains out, and your corpse, alone and forgotten, is not discovered until the smell of rotting flesh seeps under your door and your bodily fluids finally soak through the floor of your studio apartment and into the room below you. Your body is cremated, the ashes scraped into a garbage bin because there was no one in your life who valued you enough to pay for a casket, funeral, or burial plot.

You're undoubtedly one of the two, otherwise you would have better things to do than complain about the theme of a forum that doesn't care about anything you have to say.

Yeah, I am just getting a few decks to play weekly card games with. Can only use one deck at a time in a two deck rotation so the cards don't get mixed up. The other deck is old casino cards.

I thought you said something about best buy. Here in the UK there is one pack of cards on ebay, currently selling for 10. I'm not paying upwards of 10 for one deck.

I got mine for $6 a pop, shipped. Bought multiple decks. Well fucking worth it for the sheer badassery of the cards.

Best Buy and Walmart were giving them out at the Midnight release for freezy.

...and niether of those places near me had a midnight launch... why the hell didn't gamestop get those too? i don't understand that one... the cards are going for around $10 now on ebay... it'd be cool to see a listing stating they have TWO decks for sale so i don't have to order from two different people... but, i'll hold off on this for a few weeks i think...

Most of the listings I was looking at, the seller had more than one (usually 8+) deck for sale. I made an offer on a few decks and BOOM. Definitely got a great price, I had a few offers for $11 a pack out there.

Any of you guys want to buy some decks for us Brits and ship them to us if we offer to cover the postage/price of the cards? Shouldn't cost a fortune to ship to the UK afterall, given the small size/weight of the cards.

I'd probably do it. How many decks are you talking about?
