I have a lot of DD games but I'd like some physical copies of some games I want. It's tough to come by them these days. Amazon.ca has some games but they're all $30 to full price. I wouldn't mind buying some used ones for cheaper, or catch some old games hanging around in stock at a discounted price.

You guys have any places you see a decent selection of games still available? I was at a local shop the other day and they had f*** all. I might bounce around to a few more eventually but running around town looking for specific games gets tiresome and frustrating as I usually come up short.

I'm looking for some fighting games if it matters; Mortal Kombat, Injustice, Street Fighter/Tekken... I think they'd be cool to have. Any reliable sites online if I can't find anything locally?

Estarland, Ebay, VideoGamesPlus

Finding them in local retail shops like EB or Gamestop might be a but difficult at this point. Sometimes they even have them behind the counter from what I've read.

Last I looked, my local GameStop still had a decent, albeit small, selection, but it's been a few months since then, so I don't know about now.

I buy direct from the publisher (like from Limited Run Games), on Amazon, and on eBay.

Literally dedicate a paragraph thanking the man above. Geez. @game_player_s you really shouldn't spoon feed them to this extent.

Well that's a pretty decent list of sources but the .ca versions of all the retail stores have f*** all for selection.

Looks like I'm gonna have to do some rounds to local game shops and see what I can find. Hoping I can find some version of Fifa and some of those fighting games.

Not at all impressed with a lot of the prices I'm seeing either.

We're kinda past the point for good markdowns on new copies. Anything that was released a few years ago probably has dwindling stock, and anything that was released within the last couple years is pretty niche and didn't get big print runs to begin with. Good markdowns come when stores have an excessive amount and need to clear them out.

Do you think I coddle the other Vita owners to much? Guess it's possible... maybe just a little.

Sorry, wasn't aware you're in Canada, that definitely kicks you back to basically just VGP from that list, and Ebay... always Ebay. Or you could renounce loyalty to the Queen and move here... bring Maple syrup though, seriously we can't get enough of it.

Or stock that's failed to move for a long time from a retail perspective. Regardless, we've definitely moved beyond that point for the Vita. Can't speak of Canada specifically as I've never been there, but seeing as it is likewise part of Region 1 I can generalize that if the major brick & mortar retailers here in the U.S.A. began dumping Vita games in early 2015 on into 2016, then it stands to reason the same likely transpired in Canada during that same date range.
