FAQ:
Q: How can I locate this game in store?
A: Since it has been converted to pre-owned, there's no easy way to track down one. Your best bet is to go into your local store and ask if they have it in stock.

Q: Can I PM you a question about xyz game?
A: Call your local GameStop if you have any questions concerning a game.

I have an idea to make this good idea even better. I think you should post the price so people Sony have to waste time looking them up on the website. Thanks for this thread op as these conversiones have been happening more latley :)

I saw a MK Kollectors but it was still tagged as new at a GS last week. Would it have rung up as used?

Crimson gem saga has been converted to used as well. I got a new copy last week for the used price. Now you just have to be lucky enough to have a store with a copy of the game to begin with.

Thanks for this list, it's a great idea.

Last week during the B2G1, I found a new Steambot Chronicles (PS2) and was told it had been converted to used pricing. I'm not sure when or if it was just in that store, but maybe someone else can confirm it.

Workin on it

Damn. Now I have to remember which store I saw it at. I went to almost 10 stores during the B2G1 sale trying to hunt down games.

Assassins Creed Brotherhood Collectors Edition for 360 was converted to used. Found one during the B2G1 sale and it was $24.99 and still sealed.

I went to GS the other day and seen one then asked her to check because I remembered this but she just punched it in. She didn't actually get it down and she said it was $79, now this girl has only been there for a couple weeks. Any tips. It was the MK CE. Lucky they have it way up on the shelf like the War in the North I found the other day.

If it was a MK CE, it'll ring up as a pre-owned vanilla MK.

Without prices along with the games this topic is pointless.


I didn't post prices because they change all the time. Check the GameStop website for the current price.

360/PS3/Wii games price changes happen all the time, which is why I didn't post prices.

...also remember that, if GS hasn't already done so, you can "gut" these yourself, keep the goodies and return the game in 7 days.


BTW, I thought folks hated mega threads. :)

i'm pretty sure Duke Nukem Balls of Steel for PS3 was converted. It's gone of the website and they reduced the 360 version to $20.

Here is my update. I went back to GS last night and they still had the MK CE. This time there was a guy working there that has been there for awhile. I asked if he knew about them converting games to preowned and he did but said he had just tried MK a couple weeks ago for himself and it didn't work. But he was really cool and said he would try it again for me. Of course it worked this time and I walked out with it for $31 after my PUR membership. Now all I have to do is return my older used MK vanilla edition and get my $ back. woohooo.
BTW we got to talking about consoles and stuff and the rumors about the new ones not playing used games.He got his manager to come over and she showed me a e mail they had gotten that day from corporate that said that rumor was false. Now I realize it is gamestop and not MS or Sony co. but I thought it was still good to hear.
Thanks again OP for the thread.

I finally got to the GS that I believed had the MK CE and sure enough they did on pegs touching the ceiling marked $59.99. The CSR had to get a ladder to get it. Anyway, long story short, it did ring up used as mentioned and I did get it. Thanks OP for reminding me about this.

It's unfortunate that some of the lamer stores will just destroy and throw out the extras.

I wouldn't put too much stock into that. We won't know what their plans are until they have a press release at E3 of next year. If that's the case, I'll just wait until the games hit bargain bin prices or snag certain titles from my reward sites.

Great idea on the thread. I'll keep an eye out on it. I know some people will come to the thread; not read the OP, and ask the same question over and over again. That's just how this sites works. At least it brings in more traffic for Cheapy.

thx OP for this thread! a mgr told me about the 'new' to 'pre-owned' conversion & said something about how converted product #s were different from 'regular' pre-owned product #s: true? l8r went to another GS to confirm this conversion practice & CSR looked at me like 'WTF are you talking about?' and said flat out 'no, we don't do that.' was she lying or clueless?

This is not true...in the GS computer system, games are listed by name as either new or used (both with different sku's) There aren't two sku's for used and one for new...when they are converted to used it just gets thrown under the used sku.
