We've always thought that GameStop and EB Games's used titles were, at the very least, $5 too expensive, especially when you consider the pittance they reward you with for trading in your games, old or new.

As soon as it went up, it has gone down. The 512 MB Memory Unit listed on Gamestop for $49.99 with a March 1st ship date has since been removed.

Back in early December we reported a 256 MB Memory Unit being listed on Gamestop. Apparently, the same page now lists the card as being 512 MB, double the capacity of the previously unconfirmed accessory.
