Looking for a little advice. I almost forgot that I have a couple copies of GTA IV still and I noticed I have a few other things I could trade with it to take advantage of this promo. Would it be worth it to go ahead & give them GTA, Bully & Timeshift and get the $23 base ... so about ~$35? I got all of these from BBV so I spent right at $20 on them. This is probably the best deal in the immediate future, right?
edit: forgot to mention, but all 360. And I may be looking at a refurb fee on Timeshift. :/
The refurb fee likely wouldnt be too severe. Irregardless, Timeshift is not a game that's going to get you much of anything in trading or selling privately and you have to look at it that even if that game garners a refurb, its still getting you into bonus territory. I think the TIV on it is $3, and thats the most Ive ever seen for a refurb, so you're still getting something for it with the bonuses.
My philosophy is that if I have games I am not playing anymore or do not want to play again or at all, I try to maximize the trade ASAP. The older titles get, they're going to consistently lose value as stated above me.
GTA IV is a bit iffy only from the perspective that when the expansion comes out, many people who had it will re-buy it, but it's not a scenario worth waiting on because its not a guarantee. I got multiple copies during the BBV B1G1, and they helped me score some great GS credit. I still have the copy I got on launch day because I love the game.
Even if there's nothing you want at GS right now (like me), there will be soon undoubtedly and that credit will be useful. If the games are just taking up space, maximize the credit now. I'd only save them if I was stockpiling for a massive trade off.
