Star Wars KOTOR II - $2.00 :: $6.00


Wait, KOTOR2 gets six bucks @ GS? Hmm maybe I should trade mine in with the Madden coupon. I've come to the realization that I'm never going to play it anyway. Might as well trade it in....

ON TOPIC: I am seriously gonna burn 4 bucks in credit on the Burger King games. They ought to be fun for an hour and a half.:bouncy:

Advent Rising was an awesome game. It had one major camera-lock-on bug near the end, but besides that I loved it. Cool story, cool (last-gen) graphics, and fun as heck. All my friends played it too and agreed it was great overall. Too bad it was a flop in sales and highly criticized. It is a trilogy in the making. For $2.50, you can't go wrong (except it is not BC). I feel like I want to play it again. :)

I agree with everything here, except the parts about shunning them and TiVs.

I found that FYE/SecondSpin's TiVs leave much to be desired - especially for older systems. If anything, you can argue that while GS TiV are poor, FYE's are not much better.

Here is a partial list (XBOX and GC):

"won't take" means that FYE will not accept them for trade . Essentially $0.00.

XBOX - FYE/SS TiV :: GS/EB TiV (base price - no bonuses)

Atari Anthology - won’t take :: $3.00
Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II - $4.00 :: $9.00
Destroy All Humans 2 - won’t take :: $6.00
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind - $2.00 :: $1.50
The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind GOTY Edition - won’t take :: $5.00
Fable - won’t take :: $3.00
Fatal Frame II: Director’s Cut - $3.00 :: $3.00
Forza - won’t take :: $1.00
Halo 2 - $6.00 :: $5.00
Halo: Combat Evolved - $4.00 :: $4.00
Halo 2 Multiplayer Map Pack - $4.00 :: $2.50
Ice Age 2 - won’t take :: $2.50
Jet Set Radio Future - won’t take :: $1.50
Marvel vs. Capcom 2 - $7.00 :: $25.00
Ninja Gaiden Black - $2.00 :: $10.00
Psychonauts - $2.00 :: $4.00
Sid Meier’s Pirates - won’t take :: $4.00
Spongebob Movie - won’t take :: $4.00
Star Wars Battlefront II - $3.00 :: $8.00
Star Wars: Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast - $4.00 :: $8.00
Star Wars Episode III - won’t take :: $1.00
Star Wars KOTOR - won’t take :: $3.00
Star Wars KOTOR II - $2.00 :: $6.00

GC - FYE/SS TiV :: GS/EB TiV

Bratz Forever Diamondz - won’t take :: $5.00
Bratz Rock Angels - won’t take :: $2.50
Flushed Away - won’t take :: $2.50
Kirby Air Ride - won’t take :: $7.00
The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess - $8.00 :: $15.00
The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker - $2.00 :: $7.00
Mario Party 5 - $6.00 :: $10.00
Mario Party 7 - $6.00 :: $10.00
Mario Party 4 - $4.00 :: $10.00
Mario Power Tennis - $5.00 :: $12.00
Mario Superstar Baseball - $3.00 :: $9.00
Metroid 2 - $2.00 :: $6.00
Ratatouille - $2.00 :: $5.00
Spongebob: Lights, Camera, Pants - $2.00 :: $2.50
Star Wars: Jedi Knight II Jedi Outcast - won’t take :: $10.00
Super Smash Bros. Melee - $4.00 :: $10.00
Warioware - $3.00 :: $2.50

Here is the TiV comparison list between FYE/SecondSpin vs. GS/EB for some PSP games. The FYE TiVs are more competitive here.

PSP - FYE/SS TiV :: GS/EB TiV

After Burner Black Falcon - $7.00 :: $6.00
Astonishia Story – won’t take :: $3.00
ATV Offroad Fury - $5.00 :: $6.00
Brunswick Pro Bowling - $6.00 :: $4.00
Bubble Bobble Revolution - $3.00 :: $4.00
Burnout Dominator - $6.00 :: $6.00
Burnout Legends - $4.00 :: $6.00
Crash of the Titans - $7.00 :: $7.00
Dead Head Fred - $2.00 :: $3.00

Twisted Metal - $3.00 :: $2.50
Virtua Tennis 3 - $9.00 :: $2.50
Xmen Legends 2 - $4.00 :: $4.00



But, what are the selling prices for those games that are not able to be traded in at FYE/SS? Moreover, what are the selling prices for those games which get the higher trade values @ Gamestop? I can tell you right now that because Gamestop gouges and 'Ebay prices' games like Baldur's Gate: Dark Alliance II and Marvel Vs. Capcom 2(among others), that that is why they get the higher TIV's @ GS.

As far as TIV's go though, if anything gets below $3-4 in trade value, I won't even bother trading it in. This may be different with some people, but then again I've never liked the idea of getting next to nothing for my games.

So, while there are some which are higher @ Gamestop versus FYE, I'd still rather FYE since they won't take in the shit condition stuff.

Agreed. I would buy from FYE if I could for all the reasons you state.

However, I was only focusing on the view that GS/EB had mediocre TiV compared to other stores. Whether GS/EB jacks up the resell (MvC2 XBOX $60 @ GS, $40 @ FYE) or not (Baldur's Gate Dark Alliance II XBOX $30 @ both stores) puts the onus on the buyer, not the seller.

FWIW Here are some PS2 FYE :: GS comparisons:

PS2 - FYE/SS TiV :: GS/EB TiV

Arc the Lad End of Darkness - won’t take :: $1.50
Barnyard - $4.00 :: $6.00

There's making a good profit, then there's gouging. I mean, for the same game that FYE charged me $15 for(Futurama for Xbox), they charge double($30) and probably only give $3-5 in TIV for it.

I'm not saying they shouldn't make a profit, but the amount of profit they make and all of the suckers who willingly help them make it with their trades and patronizing the company is just sickening.

<rant>
How much profit are they making? How much is it costing them to take the trade-in, process it, store it in their heated, lighted building that they are renting, the list goes on and on. I don't think that they are making a huge profit on any one game.

As far as all of their customers evidently being suckers, I think you're way off base. As a parent, I would much rather buy games there than at best buy, target, or any other retail store. The fact that they take returns on used games if you simply don't like it is a huge selling point for many parents. My wife ended up buying a game for my daughter that is terrible. If we had gotten it from Gamestop, we would have gotten out money back for it. As it is, we are out $20. Not everyone has time to troll internet message boards to know everything about every game before they buy it. Please stop calling peoples suckers for making different lifestyle choices.

And to be on topic at least a little, I wish that there were better games on this list also. :(

Their uber lenient return policy is about the ONLY good point of the chain really. That much I WILL give you. But, with so many threads detailing sales and clearances on here and other deal sites on the rest of the net in general(plus sites like Pricegrabber.com, which lists multiple places to buy stuff from with multiple prices), how can ANYONE end up paying even $20 for ANY game nowadays?

I didn't mean to offend, but then again I don't really buy MANY games anymore, so I take my time and make sure I don't pay over $10 in most cases.

What game was it, if you don't mind me asking?

rant/How can anyone end up paying more that $20? Are you serious? You hate them because you hardly ever buy games which isn't a case for alot of us.

Also the $20 probably only applies to a insanely small amount of Cagers, we like to buy games new or even get happy when it's $30 if it's for a good game not only the super cheap deals and when they come out(only applies to great games) and Gamestop is much better to buy from because the employees there actually know something unlike most of the retards at Target or Walmart. Hell, I'll choose Gamestop over ever other store (sometimes Gamecrazy if I can find a good deal there) because they have a huge library and I really don't like buying online much, sure I can find it cheaper on Ebay but I like B&M since I can see my stuff before buying.

Also about the TIV, do they have a knife up to your neck demanding you trade in games? You don't have to and if someone is desperate and wants a game fast then let them, it's their choice to trade something in. You have all these complaints about them yet I have yet to see another retail store that matches them. No I don't care about Pricegrabber.com, I want you to point out a major chain that does what gamestop does but better, also the customer service at gamestop near me is excellent, they always help me find what I want and even point me out to where I can find if it isn't there./end rant

It's pretty much impossible to get a newly-released title that retailed at $60 for $20, unless it was a complete bomb, like Haze. I like to save money, but I also like to pick up certain games when they come out, not months later, when all the buzz is gone and no one is playing online.

I do like being able to see what I'm buying before I buy it, but save for THE 'big game' for me(GTA IV), I haven't found a single game worth $60 or even $30(except for Conan, which is a decent enough God Of War clone) yet on the PS3. Now, back on the Xbox I found multiple games well worth the $30-50 I paid for them, but since becoming a CAG I try not to spend alot of money on ONE game anymore.

I definitely know I aggravated the people at one of my local GS stores back in January of this year, since I took my entire last gen game collection(98 games) there and after they totalled everything up I told them NO THANKS and walked down to FYE to check what they would give me.

The service at the GS stores around here is meh at best, though I am a bit abrasive and tell them "I'm just looking" when pestered about pre-ordering or whatever else.

As for playing online and all of the buzz, Bigdaddy, I have to say that GTA IV has been my FIRST experience with online gaming on a console and I DO enjoy it. But, the people who treat free mode like deathmatch have gotta go.

Now, back on the Xbox I found multiple games well worth the $30-50 I paid for them, but since becoming a CAG I try not to spend alot of money on ONE game anymore.

I definitely know I aggravated the people at one of my local GS stores back in January of this year, since I took my entire last gen game collection(98 games) there and after they totalled everything up I told them NO THANKS and walked down to FYE to check what they would give me.

The service at the GS stores around here is meh at best, though I am a bit abrasive and tell them "I'm just looking" when pestered about pre-ordering or whatever else.

As for playing online and all of the buzz, Bigdaddy, I have to say that GTA IV has been my FIRST experience with online gaming on a console and I DO enjoy it. But, the people who treat free mode like deathmatch have gotta go.

I never did like GTA4 online, no one cares about playing by the rules and every game mode seems like it's just run around like a retard until you can shoot something that moves. Call of Duty 4 and Battlefield Bad Company are some great examples of multiplayer gaming at their finest (guess I gotta throw Halo 3 up there since there is a great variety of modes).

I didn't see it asked earlier, but are these going to be in a bin at the store, or just still on the racks where they normally are?

Depends if the store has enough time to prep. A manager I talked to yesterday was told that there would be a 50% off sale starting Thursday, but was not told what would be on sale...

I tend to have my teammates quit on me mid game in team deathmatch and/or team mafiya work, so usually I'm left to get massacred by myself.

Although the one night I played a deathmatch mode where they JUST had RPG's turned on. Even though you were easily getting killed every 20-30 seconds(you respawned close too), it was fun as hell.

Now, if they added a 'zombie' mode or something along those lines, where the other players have to survive the players with the zombie skin attacking them, that might be interesting for a bit.

Either way, this is my first taste of playing online and I've found that in free mode I just tend to do the same crap I do in the normal game once I'm done with the storyline, which is cause havoc.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
