Yes, after asking a friend he said the same thing. That kind of sucks, I'm not sure how I could replace that.

You can also buy directly from store.nintendo.com, I would post a direct link but its really long. Not sure what you're missing, but both the Controller socket cover and Memory card slot cover are $1 each, and shipping is $2. I think that's a little cheaper than ebay, and it looked like most of the auctions are shipping from hong kong

Cannot decide if it worth the money to upgrade to a new 250gb slim for $140. I have a 250gb MW2 Elite system so at best I would get $133 for it. I would trade the Forza 4 out of the holiday bundle for $27.20 and I do not have Skyrim so that is a savings. I guess I would get something for the included headset. It would be nice to have wireless and a quieter disk drive but $140 seems steep...hmm.

Hmm...did not realize that. Also was considering Halo 4 bundle for $180. The larger HD and transforming D-pad would be nice. I should just sit on my trade credit but I never do.

Base TIV as of 10/08/12:
Posted ImageXbox 360Posted Image
Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY $5 (promo does not apply to this version)

...Can someone try trading an original Arkham Asylum to see if the base value really is $7 and that the promo works on that version?

(If so, that is crazy, as the last base value reported was $2 and the non GOTY version would get $11.20 with PU Pro while GOTY gets only $5.50)


...Anyway here's some base TIVs:
:3ds: Super Mario Land 3D - $17.00
:360: Batman: Arkham Asylum - $7.00

Yes, the original version trades for $7 base and $11.20 with the bonus it qualifies for. I thought it was pretty messed up too when I took advantage of it and posted this last Sunday (10/7/2012). I'm not sure what they're thinking here.:-s

how about you not be such a crappy person with crappy morals...and just buy a new system. it seem as though you've had pretty good use out of ur launch ps3...ur basically gonna let some other victim deal with ur bs ps3 that they paid 180 plus for that freezes after a few minutes of gameplay. how the hell would you feel if u got a system like that?


Gamestop refurbishes their consoles that are traded in, I have no problem if they charge me a refurbish fee when I trade it in. Also, if they for some reason did not refurbish it, there is no victim as Gamestop would trade them that console for another one or give them a refund. How about you educate yourself before mounting on your high horse next time? Or you can just shut the hell up before commenting on someone else' morals who you know nothing about.

If anyone can help on this it would be great, I'm thinking about trading in my Final fantasy xbox 360, just the console, the 110 is most offered in recent memory. my question is how much better are the new slim's compared to the fatter older ones, mine one time while applying a update got a red ring and I had to restart the system for it to go back to normal. in terms of console longevity is the newer slim worth it? I believe I can open my 250Gb drive at stick it in the 4gb.

Personally, I haven't had any real issues until the other day with my power supply. I had to plug it direct into the wall as opposed to a surge protector, but I've had mine since about 2 months after the slims came out(needed the wifi in it). So I guess its about 2 years old with no real issues. I use it fairly frequently too, so I'm not sure if that helps you out much.

If you are getting rrod I would say upgrade. Slim uses less power and is somewhat quiter and no rrod, you can probably get a good deal on BF.

I was trying to figure out that too and it looks like he may have gotten the tiered trade bonus of 30% plus 10% for PUR on Borderlands GOTY which is the only way it adds up to $117 but it still makes no sense since that applies to 7 or more games. Weird.

$17 + $8.5 + $1.7 = $27.20
$17 + $8.5 + $1.7 = $27.20
$17 + $8.5 + $1.7 = $27.20
$9 + $4.5 + $.9 = $14.40
$15 + $4.5 + $1.5 = $21.00

Total: $117.00


To clarify, I was picking up Dishonored as well in this transaction--I also had an unopened copy of NBA 2k13 that I was returning, so the Gamestop employee applied the return credit to Dishonored but still gave me the 30% bonus for picking up the new release (hence my ability to obtain the bonus 30% and trade credit in full). I think the deal usually only works if you are applying your trade-in credit to the game you are picking up.

This was definitely a YMMV-type of deal with a cool Gamestop employee. Sorry for any confusion.

Sleeping Dogs :360: $20
Sniper Elite V2 :360: $20
Red Dead Redemption Undead Nightmare :360: $7

Weird, dunno if he just gave me $20 for the two since they're part of the 2 for $40 promo, but looks like they'er going towards a pre-order for assassins creed 3 since I can get way more with the 30% promo than the 2 for $40.

All that you held dear, all that you held close... is washed away in a sea of distant memory. Life... is cruel. Of this I have no doubt. But life continues on... with, or without you. One can only hope that one leaves behind a lasting legacy. But so often, the legacies we leave behind... are not the ones we intended." -Queen Myrrah

Just figure it out. It's $25 base and $30 guarantee for the new release in 30 days promo. $30 is rare for base tiv these days. i know mw3 had it and mass effect 2 had it at $36 at one point.

As for their return policy, I saw this at the bottom of my receipt today:

"Any new product purchased between 10/1/12 and 12/24/12 may be returned with receipt by 1/15/13. Package must be unopened and in resale condition".

So thought that was nice as opposed to the standard 30 day return policy. I'm thinking I may just return Dishonored (PS3) because I already bought it for PC.
