I hope there wont be a next time on stepping on a mods toes. Definitely not a thing I plan on doing on a regular basis. I was a little worried at first about finding myself silenced. Been banned for less on other forums. I can help out with the updating from the old thread as well. Just let me know where you get to on those pages and I can pick up from there. I don't want to start on it though until I get confirmation, definitely be bad for us both to be editing at the same time.

On the updating, I spend a whole lot of time on CAG so it shouldn't be too hard. Most days at work I'm on here anyways.


Good lord, no, I'm not gonna silence someone for that! :lol:. My beef is more with the mod who dumped the old thread into the Graveyard when I had specifically noted in the OP last night that it would be good to use Monday as soon as the GS details came in.

Anyway, like I said, once I got over it I actually thought it was a good idea. I was getting tired of updating TIVs anyway. I wouldn't bother going through the old thread any more. I went back about a week - anything more than that is liable to be wrong anyway since the prices have changed so dramatically in the last 2 weeks. So let's look forward and not back and just continue on from here ;).

Sounds good to me. There definitely has been a large amount of price changing lately.

I'll put up some 360, Xbox and PSP TIVs tomorrow. Late over here. Has anyone done the math comparing the Trade 3/4/5 and Cellfire 40%?

what math is there to do? Cellfire is at least the same, if not better, but has a max of 2. So if you trade more than 4, it makes no difference. If you trade < 4 use cellfire.
e^(ipi) = -1

You know, I completely forgot about the trade-in deal half of the Cellfire coupon. I've only used the 20% off used game purchase part. Any trading I have will probably be in small quantities so I'll just end up using that (don't have to throw in filler games). Still, the TIVs should go in this thread.

Here's my promised big TIV listing, which is even bigger due to the fact I went to GS today to pick up my CE Resistance 2 (which is very sexy!).

TIV as of 11/2 (Trade in 2 get $10 era)(All before Edge and bonus)

:360:
Star Trek Legacy $4.75
Lost Odyssey $10.75
Silent Hill: Homecoming $28.25
Ninja Gaiden 2 $13.50

:xbox:
Destroy All Humans 2 $4.00
Conker: Live and Reloaded $6.75

:psp:
Star Wars Battlefront 2 (the one that came w/the PSP) $4.00
Steel Horizon $1.25

:ds:
New Super Mario Bros. $15.00

:wii:
Wii Sports $3.00

TIVs as of 11/4 (Trade in 3/4/5 get 10%/20%/30%)(All before Edge and bonus)

:ps2:
God of War 2 $9.00
Burnout 3: Takedown $2.75
Burnout Revenge $3.75
Shadow the Hedgehog $2.25
Dragon Ball Z: Budokai 3 $2.25
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City $1.00
Ratchet and Clank: Going Commando $2.75
Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal $2.75
Hitman: Contracts $1.75
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas $7.75
Genji: Dawn of the Samurai $1.00
Medal of Honor: Rising Sun $1.00
Ratchet and Clank $2.50

:psp:
Syphon Filter: Logan's Shadow $5.50
ATV Off Road Fury $1.50

Whew, that was a lot of typing. My GS doesn't accept things below $2, but I'm cool with the manager so he let some things slide. I had 5 other PS2 games that he just couldn't let in. Those were:

GTA 3
DBZ Budokai 2
Max Payne
Socom 2
007 Nightfire

Those were all under $1. My only warning is to watch out with any old games you trade in, especially last-gen consoles and the PSP. They love to throw out refurb fees like crazy for them (I would've gotten at least $10 more without the fees).


P.S.
I know this doesn't belong here but I picked up :xbox: Shenmue 2 used for $4.99 at FYE. I saw Xenosaga 2 for $7.99 but didn't have the cash. Check out your local FYE to see if you can score anything.

P.S.S
What's the TIV of :xbox: Shenmue 2?

Would you mind reading the original post? It answers your questions. I didn't mind your first question as much because everyone seems to do that once and it shows up once on every single page, but this one is answered in Gamestop's own description of the offer.

Hmm..Assassins' Creed is 9 bucks?! And I just saw the entire .hack first set at Hastings..on cheap clearance....omg..... What to do...ARGH. Damn good offer! Thanks! If I ever find my receipt, I got TIVs for Disgaea 2, Shadow Hearts: Covenant, PS3 Rock Band and Oblivion. All I know is those 4 games + the 10 dollar bonus for two PS3 games gave me 51 bucks credit XD (W/o Edge card)

From the OP:
"Trade in 3 games, get 10% extra credit, Trade in 4 games, get 20% extra credit, Trade in 5 or more games, get 30% extra trade-in credit!"

5 or more gets 30%.

Clever way to trick me into pasting the answer.

...... critical reading to the rescue.

You asked if you would get more by trading in more than one group of 5. The answer is NO. Why? Because the terms specifically state that you get the same amount for any amount OVER 5. ANY amount over 5. 5, 50, 500, 5000. How about 453 or 12? It doesn't matter. Same percentage boost.

You trade in 5 games, you get 30%
You trade in 50 games, you get 30%.

If you want a diagram, let me know. I'm bored enough.

Thanks for putting this list together jp0213. I'm tempted to ditch Lego Star Wars II along with some other stuff.

As many of you know, black ops 2 is plaid with bugs, lag etc which many people have been suffering including me.

I don't deserve the thanks. The first one to start gathering it was io and CAGs have been contributing to this for a couple months through other trade deals GameStop has had. Just updating the information people post.

TIVs today (both for GameCube) before bonuses:

Mario Golf Toadstool Tour: 4.75
Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy 6.75

So both of those aren't good flips, with Mario Golf being a particularly bad one. LSW ends up being about 9.50, so it's a slight loss at best.

Pikmin 2 - $19.75 :D
Mario Party 7 - $8.75

... and much appreciation to the CAG'ers responsible for the list of TIV's (that means you too jp0213 :))
