Halo 5 doesn’t seem to be holding up its value according to a UK video game trade in website. Trading in Halo 5 only gets you £10 back in return, and the shop is selling the pre-owned version for £22. You wouldn’t think such a big AAA title that only released 4 months ago would lose that much value, but we checked the trade in prices for the big AAA titles released in the later half of 2015, and the results were quite shocking.
Call Of Duty Black Ops III sells for £35, and has trade in price of £16.
Just Cause 3 sells for £42, and has a trade in price of £19.
Rise Of The Tomb Raider sells for £32 and has a trade in price of £15
Even titles releases before Halo 5 have held up better
Metal Gear Solid V sells for £25 and has a trade in price of £11
The Witcher 3 sells for £30 and has a trade in price of £14
Mortal Kombat X sells for £32 and has a trade in price of £15
We also considered that maybe the shop itself had too many Halo 5’s in stock that were not being sold quick enough. We checked what price major retailers were selling the game for, and we have seen it as low as £20 for a brand new copy of the game compared to the still high selling used prices of other fall release games. Even The Master Chief Collection has a better retail price brand new than Halo 5!
Is Halo 5 really not selling that well? Are people returning the game in more than anticipated? We don’t know this, but we can say that Halo 5 is really not holding up well compared to games released after it and even way before it.
Let us know in the comments section what you think about this? Is Halo 5 just not performing that well compared to other AAA titles? We want to know your thoughts.
