Just looking for trade-in prices? Well, check out what's been reported:
GameRush Trade-In Prices Wiki
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Confirmed: All used games are 25% off (includes Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and Wii).
Confirmed: All non-Next Gen game rentals are 2 for $10.

Price Drops for the week of 12/10:

Okay, here's the price drops from this week (that I can remember):

:360:
Prey $19.99 New
Top Spin 2 $19.99 New
Table Tennis $29.99 New
Test Drive Unlimited $29.99 New
Xbox Live Arcade Unplugged $29.99 New
Dead or Alive 4 $39.99 New $34.99 Used
NHL 2K7 $39.99 New
NHL 07 $39.99 New
Official Xbox Faceplate (Silver) $6.99 New

:psp:
Miami Vice $19.99 New
LocoRoco $29.99 New

:ds:
Metroid Prime Hunters $19.99 New $19.99 Used (Yes, they changed both the new and used price to $19.99)
Pokemon Trozei $19.99 New

:ps3:
Sony Six-Axis Controller $39.99 New (Not a price drop, but $10 cheaper than MSRP)

System Watch:

Some GameRushes have PS3's on their incoming shipping reports as arriving on Tuesday, December 5th. One of the local stores that actually received Wii's will receive 1 (One) PS3 ($600 Version) tomorrow. No firm reports on when the next shipment of Wii's will arrive.

Random News:

In a really strange turn of events, GameRush actually pulled a lot of PS2, Xbox, and Gamecube games from Previously Played status and put them back up on the wall to rent. There are still plenty of used games for sale, but I thought this was an interesting move on Blockbuster's part.


Older News:

Random Tip
FIFA 2007 for the Xbox 360 is currently listed at $40 new ($60 everywhere else). If you pre-order it and pay for it in full now, you should be able to pick it up when it releases and save yourself $20.


Price Drops for previous weeks (what was in inventory at the store I went to)

Kingdom Hearts II (PS2) - $29.99 New
Godfather (Xbox 360) - $49.99 New $44.99 Used

Price Drops (and prices I thought were notable) for the week of 9/24

I got my hands on the list of price drops from this week at Game Rush and there are several good ones. Keep in mind that this list is just what was in stock at the store I went to so there are certainly other games that dropped in price as well.

Current Trade-In Deals

There are no trade-in deals at this time. The trade 3 get and extra $5 per game is still in affect at some locations.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reported Trade-In Prices

Trade-In Price Wiki <--- Trade-In Prices are now kept here.

We now have a trade-in price Wiki that will be easier to keep up to date (thanks Botticus). All recent trade-in prices will be listed here along with the date they were reported. Trade-in prices are usually universal at both Blockbuster and Gamerush, but there are some that differ per region. Trade-in prices generally change on Tuesdays.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Game Pass

Rent unlimited games for a month. You can have one game (or 2 depending on the pass) out at a time and can return it whenever you want and switch it out as many times as you want.

$21.99 for 1 Game

http://www.gamerush....es_gamepass.php click this link to find out about gamepass at Gamerush.

You must have a credit card/check card to signup. Checkcard must be visa, mc, amex, dc, or diners club. You can also do it by getting a prepaid visa, mc, dc or amex card with at least $1 on it so it will clear the authorization and just pay for it each month (very tedious though). You can cancel at any time. Good on any rental game (gamecube, psp, nds, gba, xbox, ps2).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

GAMERUSH WEBSITE

This should have alot of stuff so please just search around the website before asking questions. Website updates happen but most deals are in effect way before they are updated on gamerush.com so check in the thread for the newest deals.

Maybe that one was a price raise then? The sheet I have definitely says $20 for the Xbox version and $30 for the PS2 or Gamecube version, though.

Don't feel bad, everything on that list will be $20 or cheaper at other stores sometime in the future. There really isn't anything on that list that is screaming out "awesome mega deal!!!" to me.

I'll just wait for Lemmings on PSP to drop to $20 and GGC it.

I called my lady friend last night and said my buddy had to beat off on my chest, she is kinda pissed at me, but it was the best idea I had all night, and I stand by it.

I couldn't hold off on College Hoops for the 360 for $10. I can play it and trade it or sell it somewhere when I'm finished with it and get at least my $10 back.

I picked that up along with a used Medievil, a new Viewtiful Joe (PSP), and Super Princess Peach for my nieces birthday (which was the whole reason I went to GR in the first place :)).

Yea, that college hoops may be the one exception.

I guess I'm just sad because Gamecrazy had such an awesome clearance with a ton of excellent deals you can't get elsewhere... this one dosen't really compare, since I know all of these games will drop to $20 at other stores in due time.

I won't be able to get a new Shining Soul 2 or Boktai 2 for $8 probably ever again ;)

Sonic Riders was $19.99 for the Gamecube when I bought it on Saturday. I suppose it could have gone back up with the new pricing, but that seems unlikely. Maybe just the PS2 is $29.99?

DAMN - I want Ape Escape 3 and Shadow Hearts FTNW but I doubt my store has either...
I'm glad I traded in my Zelda Four Swords as it got $12 before bonus ($17 after!) just yesterday (Tues). They must not have adjusted the used price on that one to less than the new yet ;).

Nope, if you bought it on Saturday, it definitely raised in price on Sunday because both of those versions are on the "Reprice Report" that went into effect Sunday.

Well, cool, then - I guess I lucked out. It makes up for them dropping Daxter so quickly (which I got for $29.99 using the preorder deal) but not the 10-20 games I've been waiting on for much longer.

So would this mean that the used prices of all of these games have dropped as well?

Also should all of these game prices be live right now?

sorry if i'm a bit ignorant but its been awhile since I've shopped at game rush due to the banning i got slapped with last year.

Well, there are price drops every week, but they are usually not this big. I would guess that Shadow Hearts would stay at $20 for a while, before it had any chance of falling any further.

No, not all of the used prices dropped, but some did. Many of the games (including some of the 360 ones) actually have a higher used price than new price. For example, Far Cry Instincts Predator has a used price of $34.99 and Full Auto has a used price of $24.99.

It looks like most of the used prices for PSP games did drop though.

Yeah, I agree with ship - if you want SH FTNW from GR I would get it now - they are unlikely to get restocked at all, let alone by the time any further drop occurs. I might just pick it up (if they have it, which I doubt) just to round out my Shadow Hearts collection. One day I might even play them!

Now I do know they have a used one - that ought to be $16.99 now (or soon enough anyway) I suppose. I really wish they'd bring back some used game deals (25% off would be nice).

As for the used prices dropping, well we saw it for sure with the PSP games. But I know that Zelda Four Swords clearly didn't drop as I got $17 for it in trade-in (after bonus) and they wouldn't have been able to give me that price if it had been more than the used sale price. I would expect the used prices to get in line within a few weeks though.

Ape Escape: On The Loose (PSP) $9.99
Devil Kings (PS2) $19.99
Lunar: Dragon Song (DS) $19.99

I picked up Shadow Hearts: FTNW for $20 today! That was the magic price on that one! Thanks for the list Shipwreck. I had been spotting price drops the last few weeks and wondering what else had dropped.

I also saw Sonic Riders (GC) & (PS2) stickered at $19.99, but the tags aren't always up-to-date.

Oh one more thing (my thoughts seem to be jumping around a lot today), I found out that used UMDs apply towards the DVD deals that they run. So the 4 for $20 or the 3 for $20 deals apply to UMDs if they meet the pricing requirements of those deals.

Maybe this was already known, but it was news to me.
