And surprisingly, people buy the overpriced DVDs.

Did anyone have trouble finding the GOTY editions of Oblivion at their local Gamestops? I stopped by 2 stores that supposedly have the GOTY edition and I couldn't find them. I saw the regular Oblivions, but not the GOTY editions.


Found 5 copies at 4 stores but 2 of them were scratched to hell

He's talking about at Gamestop. (i.e. - look at gamestop.com)

Just a little extra info to those who are flipping Oblivion GOTY... if you own a 360 and a regular copy of oblivion, install the GOTY content before trading it in. Knights of the Nine and Shivering Isles for free, that's all I'm saying.


My Friend told me that but I forgot before I traded it. boo.

I had this problem at 3 different stores that supposedly had it. I thought I'd have a ton of these, but it looks like I'll just have 4. It's too bad Smash Court Tennis is such as hassle to trade in. I picked up 3, knowing I probably would have trouble at my BBVs, but one of my Gamestops had 22 copies! I couldn't believe it. I could have really cashed in on that one.

My local BB doesn't allow the purchase of gift cards (Macy's, PSN, XBL, etc) with BB gift cards. Apparently it is a new store policy that is going around. I hope it is just this store cause I want to pick up a couple of PSN cards, since there isn't anything worth getting at overpriced BB.

I can understand Macys, VV and the like, but PSN and XBL are actual retail merchandise cards, not retail currency.

People have been posting about this all week, I guess they just act like they are using a credit card, but then push gift card and swipe it.

I went back to the Blockbuster I got refused at and sucessfully bought a $100 VV. The CSR wasn't a manager so that probably helped.

He even asked how I was paying and I said value card, he didn't say anything except "You know there will be a 5.95 activation fee right?"

received my 7 copies of Wii sport today. All looks good.

I just went to my local Ralphs supermarket and they're selling a lot of store gift cards; home depot, Trus, kohl's, best buy, Amex, etc. Another way to use vv, so you dot need to worry about the balance.

Thanks, i couldnt figure how to do this last night while i was studing for finals. Anyway one of the stores that supposedly has it available doesn't have it. I just checked a couple hours ago. So I'm thinking this might not be 100% accurate or up to date. Maybe someone just snatched it before me and the site hasn't updated it yet.

Fixed. It only gets $20 on PS3. I bought one, tried to trade it in today (assuming it was $1 more than the 360 version), and it only gets $20... so I took it back to Gamestop.

holy crap that sucks. You weren't alone because i assumed the same price. hopefully no one else falls victom to this. I also bought a Juno Blu ray at GS. It was tagged yesterday (120808) and it didn't ring up 75% off. A very kind GS manager manually adjusted it for me, for which i am extremely appreciative :-)

I guess the 75% off is really over for dvds and blus :-( I still had many GS to hit up but couldn't because of school

I'm running out of good flips here.. I was reduced to buying new/used copies of Monster Jam, Smash Tennis 3, and a few used blitz's.. I still turned $50 on my visa into $75 + TDK at blockbuster.

Yeah, I thought about doing that but I had just gotten one of the misprinted GotY editions (NEW) from Gamecrazy a few months back for $29.99.

what is this?

io, did you get my pm?

In other news, I'm updating the second post with new trade-in values and dates - ought to be current through this post in a few minutes...

I'm confused. It was just updated yesterday.

Or do you mean there are still a few months old values there?
seems those occasionally get missed if someone does re-report one.

Yesterday? I updated it just a few hours ago!

But again, no, I didn't call in for every old value. By updating I mean trying to go through pages upon pages of clutter to find the few posts where people report prices and then updating those in the second post ;).

Is this right? If so, this went UP $3 at GS which just seems unlikely.

Posted 10 December 2008 - 06:23 AM

OK, I updated the second post with all the current GS trade-in values from the GS trade-in thread. Now, many of our values were lower and may be newer quotes or maybe not - since it seems many values have gone up recently. But just to be safe I went with the lower values. Anyone who posts GS trade-in values here SHOULD BE DOING IT in the GS trade-in thread. It is pretty clear that many that have been posted here have not made it into that thread and that thread should contain the most up-to-date info. So as the B1G1 starts up please cross post GS trade-in values over there (as well as here so people who frequent BBV stores get a heads up).

I hate you. Send one to me, please. If you're not joking, that is. I actually want to keep one for collectors purposes and NOT to resell. It's one of my favorite games of all time.
