It's a seven year old game! Whoops, lemme guess: the supply and demand factor, isn't it?

Not even. You can get a lot if not all of these games for less than a Lincoln used a gamestore. (Gamestop, Gamecrazy) just go to the nearest store and ask for it. Even if they don't have another one of their stores will most likely be able to nail it to the store for you to pickup. It'll cost like an extra 5$ but they won't charge extra for multiple games.

The game is priced high because it is no longer in print. Thus, it is only available from third-party sellers who charge more than the original MSRP because it is now more rare.

Its only rare dude if its either I Collectors Item or it was printed in short supply. Super Mario Sunshine doesn't fit either of those. Its all about price gauging!

Well of course it's price gouging.

Gamecube games aren't in print anymore, so people take the opportunity to sell them for higher because you can only get them second hand. How ELSE are you gonna get them? It's like any games for consoles which are no longer having games made for them. Luckily, most game stores don't do that, but if you can't find it there...

You fail to factor in if everyone keeps their copy or not. Alot of copies may have been printed, but alot of people keep their copies of sm sunshine which makes it more rare because less copies are floating around.
