How much is that in real monetary terms?

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

18 British Sterling Pound lol.
PabloHoneyOle

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...

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.
Kuwong
they sell the decks of cards? where?
bOnEs
at this little place on the net called, ebay...

*facepalm*

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?
