I’m excited to start this blog about used video game prices, but first I wanted to let you know what to expect from the blog.
The blog will be about the pricing for used video games and how the prices change; when they change the most; and what certain events do to game prices. Examples of questions I will answer are: What happens to video game prices at different times of year? What happened to prices of old Pokemon games when Pokemon Diamond and Pearl came out for DS? And can collecting video games actually make you money? I plan on showing you graphs and reliable pricing data at the heart of all my posts. But most of the posts won’t be too technical.
Why should you read a blog that I am writing about video game pricing? I own a business selling used video games: www.jjgames.com. As part of this business, I have collected price data on thousands of video games for the last six years, which makes as close to an expert on this topic as you can get.
The first couple of posts will be introductions about how I get the pricing data and a bit more about myself, but then I will dive right into the first real post; how prices change on games through out the year? When do the prices go up? When do they go down? And by how much?
