I know that maybe you didn't want to deal with eBay, but that game goes for $50-60 on there. Cash. Even with eBay/Paypal fees, it'd have been much better.

Not for a beat-up exrental that isn't complete.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

Indeed. Also, keep in mind that the rumors of the game showing up on the XBL and PSN have bit into the resell value a bit. The PS2 version still seems to almost consistently get $75 on eBay, but I have seen the Xbox version fluctuate, dropping to as low as $30 in some auctions. It doesn't help that the game runs like crap on the 360.

Yeah, I was basing it on a copy I sold last month for $70 (trying to get rid of it before an official announcement). It wasn't complete, but it was in pretty good shape. I'd forgotten how badly ex rentals can be from HV.

Grand Theft Auto San Andreas: $7.75

Following are Xbox 1 trade values before any bonuses.
Star Wars Battlefront 2 - $10.50
Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas - $11.75
Ninja Gaiden Black - $4

And a few Wii and 360 values
Super Smash Bros Brawl - $21
Assasin's Creed 360 - $4.75
Metal Gear Solid 4 PS3 - $12
GTA4 360 - $12

MAKE SURE you use the trade two, get a new title for those last two.. the values bumped up by $10 apeice when I used that deal. You can always exchange the product for something else that's not on the list later.

And yes, all of those were purchased at Hollywood Video, mostly for $4 apeice ;)


:shock: on that GTA San Andreas price. I passed that up at my store today thinking it would trade for squat given how much Xbox stuff has dropped off. I'm especially surprised the Xbox one is more than the PS2 one. Wow... I'll have to go back and snag that.

And just to be clear before anyone gets excited, you didn't get any of those Wii/360/PS3 games for $3.99 - they were 20% off though some were pretty cheap I take it (Ass Creed was actually less than $3.99 though, right?). I may have to look into that.

GS TIVs 11/6/08 (all before bonuses & edge)

PS2 -

God of War $4.00
God of War II $9.00
Guitar Hero Rocks the 80's $6.75
Kingdom Hearts II $3.75
Star Wars TFU $18.75

GC -

Mario Power Tennis $5.75
Mario Superstar Baseball $7,25
Super Mario Strikers $3.75 (ugh!)



GS wouldn't take 4 games from me, because I had traded the same titles (1 copy of each) yesterday. I've never had a problem at GS before. They cited their theft policy as the reason, yet they took all 10 of the other games I brought in. Doesn't really make sense they would bring up their theft policy and still take some of my games, but whatever. However, they did say that if I bring in a receipt they will gladly accept them, guess I will have to, to clear my name.

If anybody knows the TIV for the Lego Indiana Jones/ Kung Fu Panda holiday bundle double pack it would be greatly appreciated.

EDIT: Nevermind, I just opened the case up and both games are on separate discs so I guess it's full price for each. SWEEEET!

Indeed - I said the same thing when I saw that posted earlier today (after having made 2 trips to my local Hollywood). Fortunately this store is only 1/2 mile from my house and they ended up having 2 copies of San Andreas ;).

Keep an eye out for that Hot Wheels PS2 game, too, though - I knew, that, like Power Rangers Super Legends when it first hit $9.99 at Blockbuster, it being a fairly new release meant it would get a decent amount at GS. $12.60 after promo + Edge is pretty nice. (Of course, :xbox: GTA SA is $16.45 after all bonuses ;)).

Yeah, thanks for the heads up on the Hotwheels game. I may have seen that... my store had five GTA SA games though. If Gamestop didn't have the one game only rule, I'd take all 5 and turn 24.XX into 82.XX. That's some nice flipping right there. But I may get a few and pad it with games that get at least 6.XX before bonus. I know that's not terrific flip-- they say go big for cash flips-- but EB trade credit is just as good as money for me. I put a lot of money into the coupon sales they have.
How is Gamestop on disc only games? Are they still good, or are they still doing the YMMV fees for not having the original case or manual? I've heard of a few stores doing that.

Don't forget you can just pair up the GTA SA with one other game and use the Cellfire coupon. Even though I'm using credit (from Gamecrazy) to buy these games I'd say it is still worth it using cash even if you get a second game at break-even (and there's plenty of those).

As for GS and disc-only, it varies, man... I have not been charged a refurb fee on any of these HWV games and some have been pretty iffy. Though I tend to get them cleaned at the store where I buy them if they look bad - that has saved several from fees I'm sure.

As for not having the case, yeah, I got told at one GS that they would charge a refurb fee if so (don't think the lack of a manual matters at all to 99.9% of GS stores though). The thing is, you actually do have a case with these "disc-only" games, it just isn't one with original artwork. I'm not sure how they would treat that. But tonight at a another store they looked up the 3 out of 9 games I had that didn't have artwork or had the old-style Hollywood reprint without a UPC code on them with no problem. I got $130 for 9 games with no refurb fees. It was very nice indeed. Now if I only I could find one of these mythical cheap-ass Xbox 360 games (like Civ Rev for $12) other people are finding ;).

Yeah, me too-- I'm crossing my fingers that it's simply a case of of the prices not being updated today because my theory that the Gamezone element was throwing off pricing was disproven by people who have Gamezones who posted followups saying that they got the proper pricing. So, this makes me very excited for tomorrow's prospects. Either way, I'll get my first serious flipping experience done tomorrow. Hope I do well and don't get stuck with refurb fees.

TIV (base) 11/6:

GTA:SA Xbox - $11.75
Zelda:TP GC - $14.50
Mercs 2 PS2 - $18.75
Ninja Gaiden Black Xbox - $4.00
Mario Kart:DD GC - $10.50
Mario Party 4 GC - $6.50
Incredible Hulk PS2 - $7.75
SW:Battlefront 2 Xbox - $10.50

Picked up some more games. I will trade in today and post the TIV. All the HV (excluding the 1 with GC) were honoring the deal. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find the high end TIV game (only 2 Mercs 2) but have done more that ok, thanks to GTA:SA Xbox and Zelda:TP GC. All the HV in my area are pretty much cleaned out except for some lower end TIV that I left behind. There were alot of GTA:SA though.
