EB Games has really messed up prices to begin with. Example: often, for newer releases (or any releases), the difference between the new and used copies of a title is only about $2-3. So Metal Gear Solid 3, which can cost $39.99 new will cost something like $37.99 or $36.99.
EB online also has that nigh perpetual "15% off used games" code that you can enter, to make people think they are getting a great deal with used games. But it does bring down the cost of the more expensive used games.
EB isn't the only place to price used games nearly the same as new copies though.
And for the initial post where the new version was cheaper than the used, were new copies actually in stock? I know with Amazon and a few other sites, you'll get lured in with a cheap "New" price only to see that the new copies are back ordered, out of stock, or even out of print. But keeping the price listed gets them hits on price check websearches like froogle.
EB online mysteriously no longer has new PS2 copies of CFJ, only used PS2 or new Xbox copies.

What was awesome in the Jump magazine preview pictures was that Dio did Road Roller Da! on some guy in one picture, another picture was Dio giving Naruto MUDAMUDA, and yet another one was ORAORA vs. MUDAMUDA (and was even labelled as such!). Even funnier, in the picture where you see the ORAORA vs. MUDAMUDA, at the lower part of the screen is Luffie doing his punch rush, and he just looks pathetic compared to them.
Yay!! I recently got the Jump preview pages you mention, and Gyro was there as a playable chaacter as well!!! And there also were Polnareff, Avdol and Joseph as assistant characters!! Now this game sure looks as a must buy to me...
And I agree with you about those One Piece comparison pics, Luffy looks simply pathetic (as always). As someone said in 4chan : "The power of WRRRRRRRYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!! will own Luffy, Naruto and all this crappy chars"...
