Not much profit in selling games. Wholesale is 51.00 for xbox / ps3 games and retail is 59.. subtract your selling fees and your down to pennies on the dollar. Its all about VOLUME

This is correct, Video games and Dvd movies have a wholesale price only a few dollars below retail. Its not worth getting into.

Last 2 posts are right, not much profit on those items. I have been selling those for about 6 months now. I do make a good business out selling those , but like they say there is not much profit. I have found out that if you lower the retail price down $2 you can do alot. We do more volume on the games when they are a little lower.
Same with consoles, not much profit on those either. Cost of most of them are Wii $243 Xbox $339 PS3 40GB $392

i have found some people who supplied ps3 game, such as Call of duty $38, The club $28, Halo 3 $28 etc, they all brand new and sealed, if video game is low profit, how can they get so cheap?

Actually that is not a good point. First off these games can not be found this cheap unless they were discontinued and liquidated by a retailer. You will not find these through any legitimate wholesaler for that price unless they are outdated titles.

I know for a Fact that Halo3 is a Microsoft title and I know who their distributer is.
I was quoted only a few dollars below retail from them for a 1,000 title minimum purchase and they are the actual distributer not a wholesaler.

Most likely your people were acquiring fakes. Or discontinued shelf stock.
I have seen entire cases of brand new game titles in some of my Target Store Loads.
