From April 20th-26th GameStop will be offering $50 off NEW and USED(Slim only) PS3 systems.

You will also receive a free copy of either Mortal Kombat: Komoletr Edition or Batman: Arkham City with the purchase of a NEW PS3 or XBOX360.

Edit: GameStop will also be offering a 50% trade bonus on any preowned purchase from 4/20-4/29

Edit #2: Since so many people are asking, this has been confirmed to work on the 320GB Uncharted 3 Bundle, bringing the price down to $249.99

That's actually a pretty good deal. Maybe I will trade in some junk and try and pick up a used one.

Pretty decent deal. I want to jump on it, but I have a 20+ game backlog for 360. So why would I want another system...

That and I severely don't like GameStop, but have $200 in credit there still

Dam Gamestop and their 30 day return policy I just picked-up a new PS3 on 3/17/12 and its still unopened whish I could do a return and rebuy to get the deal. I might just eat the $50.00 saving on the 160gb one I got and just upgrade to the 320gb which would now be the same price with the $50.00 off. Anybody ever have luck returning anything past the 30 days if it is still unopened?

I should also mention that GameStop will be giving a 50% trade bonus with ANY pre-owned purchase. I guess I'll add that to the OP

Woah, so we can trade stuff in at 50%+10% and use that toward a used PS3 and get $50 off that? I might have to pick one up. Are PS3s reliable such that buying a used one is a safe bet?

What's their price for a used 160 GB? None of those seem to be on the website. The only refurbished slims are in bundles.

If you do get a Slim. If you get a fat more likely than not you'll get a YLOD system that someone reflowed and traded in. Even if it wasn't YLOD before a lot of the older fats are due to YLOD in the near future.

Definitely glad to hear the 50% towards a pre-owned purchase. I've been meaning to pick up a few items.

So you could get a new slim for $199 (Isn't MSRP $249) AND get either MK or Batman AC?

Where did you see that? When does it start? There is nothing on their website about it yet.

Hmm, yeah, I guess it makes more sense to get a new one and get $50 off plus a game, but if I were to get MK i'd want it for 360, because I've got a 360 arcade stick. Can you get the 360 version of one of those games instead of the PS3 version?

seems like gamestop knows something that everyone doesn't know yet (PS3 Price Drop?) and are trying to unload as much ps3 as possible...

$199 for a 160GB + a game is a pretty good deal though!

I think it will limit you to the same system as purchased. Wouldn't hurt to try though

Crunchewy. If you'd prefer a new one, don't forget the old buy a $.99 preowned game and trade in all of your stuff for the 50% bonus option.

Couldn't hurt to try bro. If you're a regular fixture at your GameStop, like most of us are, they'll probably show you a bit of grace. Can't hurt to ask.

Ah! Good idea! Now I'd still really like to have MK for 360. Hopefully they'd allow that.

Is there a listing for this deal somewhere on their home page? I looked around but couldn't find any mention of it.

The MK is the one that comes with the bookends or the new one with the dlc? OP is messy.

It would be really hot with the R&C:A4O and LBP2:SE bundle. You spend $200, but you could almost knock it down to less than $150 by selling/trading all 3 games.

If you wanted infamous 2, you could trade in R&C at BBV (should be $22) and pick up infamous 2 (sells for $20).

You're doing it wrong.
I get the gamestop hate, but I must be pretty damn lucky, I've got three gamestops locally with employees who really know their stuff. Got one guy who's having a Brawl arcade stick transferred from Puerto Rico for me, told the guy he was talking to in PR to throw in some Gamecube fillers to pad out the shipment.

If you bought it with a credit card you could use return protection benefits, ymmv depending on your credit card.

Well, good to know on the extra 50% deal, And the PS# deal I want to do so much, but unless I get some mega score at a garage sale, I don't have the money.

I just called GS and they said that the sale starts tomorrow. I bought MK:KE when they had the spring sale and the guy said that I can return it / get it for free. Also they will be offering a $50 bonus trade in on used systems.

I think that Sony might offer a new bundle and a $50 price drop soon, just a guess after seeing this deal.


yea you can almost count that the 160GB is going to 199 or less at E3...

Tempetd got 100 bucks on a gift card after dumping a 4 year old xbox360 we never used




if you could dump the game off for 30 it be like buying the unit for 170

Do you think there will be a price drop at E3? Because I just did the math and I actually could buy a PS3 with this deal, if I forced myself to trade 21 or 22 games from my personal collection when they do the extra 50%.

I hope I get an amazing score at garage sales this weekend.
