Does Madden come in a regular PSP case or is it a sleeve type of deal? I was thinking of getting the Madden PSP trade in madden game and purchase the god of war game. Anybody know how well do PSP games trade at BB? or would it be better at GS?

the madden game is in a apper sleeve like the psp bundles have them. i asked the manager at GS when I got it and he looked it up, $20 for madden psp. I have held of on trading it in since I sont have 4 other games, gotta find some at BBv, maybe a small flip from GS->BBV->GS, dont need any profit, just 1:1 games so I can get the bonus, + I'm gonna pick up RE4 wii with that coupon. good thing I held off getting it til now. And also getting a xbl points card at BBV.

Also the contest for syphon filter is still on, so put :imwithst:at the end of your post if your interested.

Not so many interested yet (6 I think). I'll pick out of hat on saturday I think.

Any thoughts on a contest for Beats?

I just added the list of Wii games compiled by Bezerker and whatup5 to the second post. Then I realized they showed only the after coupon GS prices and to be consistent with the rest of the prices I had to convert back to the original GS prices. D'oh! Kind of a pain since I'm on dialup now. Anyway, please post both for any future lists and they will go into the second post faster that way ;).

I had no idea Dewey's Adventure was so cheap now at GS. I might just pick that up for the kids anyway.

few pages back, I have a syphon filter code and a beats code. And since I got them in psp bundles (syphon filter gow psp got returned, oops). And I got them by flipping. I thought since I didn't want them I'd give them away here instead of the contest forum.

Ok guys n' gals lets be smart on this new opportunity.

More than one manager has just shared with me this is being monitored...any thoughts Warner? (of course I feigned my usual ignorance...and was trading non duplicate titles)

It might be wise to keep the info new simple and Not quote/highlight the obvious r e p e a t e d l y. And while I applaud the success of others...are the $ totals and details really necessary? I understand the "totals" are perking interest...

At the end of the day, do what you want , but I thought this info would be helpful, and I for one appreciate the collaborative effort and would like it to last....

P.S. thanks for the info! :applause: beat me to the phone tonight.

Have a great evening....


Must be something specific to your district. While I am (obviously) 100% aware of this thread and the activities, I am also not a clueless douche that likes to ban people the moment I realize they traded in two games. However, put this info in the hands of one of the aforementioned douche's and you've got instaban written all over your account.

My warning to you (and everyone else) is simple... don't be stupid. Trade 1 copy of each game to each store. Period. Don't give stores reason to suspect shit. The only exception to this rule would be my store or any other store that has a cool store manager/assistant manager that likes you and has half a brain.

That being said, it looks like there's a lot of good trade fodder this week, so it shouldn't be too hard to trade 5-6 different games to each store.

I wish you'd be more specific. By "this" do you mean THIS particular thread, flipping in general, what? When you throw something out there like that please be specific! In reading through this thread I thought you must have meant the new GS Wii promo since that is the only "this" everyone is talking about. But then, how the hell would BB people monitor that :lol:. So I figured you must mean this thread. But then again, who knows...

I have no idea what he's talking about either...Telling people to not do something but not allude to what "something" is can be confusing as hell. Jesus, makes it sound like we're in a badly written spy novel or something.

I'm sure you already know, but you can get $32 if you trade Madden at a GS participating in the extra 50% TIV.

More flipping opportunities with Wii games....hmmm, do I want to move credit around again? I think I still have almost $100 at GS to move to Blockbuster if I choose. Hmmm, what to do ;)

1. Windows Media Connect is basically WMP11 now...you can share stuff WITHOUT using Media Center.
2. Once you pull a picture up, I believe there is an option to set as a background
3. Unsure
4. Why does this matter? I think you need a TV tuner in your PC....you should know if you TV has a built in tuner....this does NOT effect Media Center.
5. Not sure if there is a copy option from Media Center...you may have to throw on a flash drive to copy directly to the 360. I never copy over, just stream.

???

you mean the coupon? I tried that a week ago at 2 GSs and they wouldn't take it.

I got $50 bbv credit so I'm gonna transfer with a few games and transfer a preorder there. Plus gotta return that gow psp for $215.xx gs credit while I'm there.

Honestly, I find the media center options to be horrible. It takes forever for the sample pictures to load for all the videos. It's much easier to just share everything through WMP and then you can just view the titles in the selected folders on your 360.

To all looking for even money flips from BB back to GS:

As long as the "trade in a system, get $20 extra" promo is on, you can flip GBA SP's from BB to GS for even. Cost at BB = $39.99. Base trade in at GS = $20 + $20 bonus credit = $40

Just happened to see one today at my local BB/GR and remembered that I used that promo a while back on my SP after I got a DS. Not great, but I have seen enough requests in here for even money that it might be worth it to some of you.

With Edge would this net you a little extra, actually?

:imwithst:


If you are cool with the GS employees, get the bonus trade card for Madden 09. Its the little black card that lets you get $40 for NCAA 09 (:ps3: :360: gets $40, :wii: gets $30, :ps2: :psp: are excluded) if you put it towards Madden 09. Then either keep or return the Madden 09 for something else. Offer expires 8/17/08.

I certainly am. Having just one Gamerush near me would make flipping infinitely easier. As it stands, there aren't any in my state (or even neighboring states from what I can see).

thanks for the list. Spent the morning over a cup of coffee and Gamestop.com searching the store locator for copies. A lot of these are going to be tough finds, but should be able to get enough to make the trip worthwhile.
Now to decide if I want to deal with taking the kids to the mall. In between the two gamestops in the mall is a Disney Store and a Build a bear.
Not BB related, but if going to get games to flip...wii sports, Pikmin 2, SW Jedi Knight II Outcast and Metal Gear Twin Snakes are all decent flips to ebay for cash.

I don't have time until later today, but people might want to check these out as potential flips using the new GS coupon:

Wii- prices before discounts
One Piece: Unlimited Adventure-17.99
Emergency Heroes-17.99

They're all the biggest Wii drops, although I'm not sure when they happened. I'll give BBV a call sometime during my break, but if one of you guys wants to check on the tradein values, that'd be pretty nice.

Maybe you should check some DS trade in prices first, for the most part you would need to be buying games for under $5 to be worthwhile. The only time I've really heard much about a DS flip was from people buying SNK Cardceptors DS for $2 at Sears and trading it in for $9
