I reported this a while ago, but I see that the first post says $17 each, so either I got majorly ripped off or there's a seperate classification for the ones I traded in.

:ps3: Jabra 125 Bluetooth headset(from Warhawk bundle)-$6.50($7.15 with Edge)

I hope that quote is for the official one in the first post or I got majorly ripped off.


Wow considering I only sold mine for $10 after listing it twice on EBay, plus the PayPal fees (charged $3 extra for shipping FC so that was a wash) I probably would have been just as good to trade it to Gamestop, as I would have done it towards ODST and gotten almost $9 for it.

Maybe someone can help me add up this potential trade in. I went out and bought a Jasper 360 when my elite bought the farm in between the time they extended the warranty to cover E83 errors. So, I have an elite just sitting there, sans harddrive.

I could trade in the elite core unit (without the HD) and one wireless controller under the current promotion for $90, plus Edge? What all cables are necessary to include to get that? I have all sorts of cables since I am only using the HDMI from the Elite with the Japser, so I have 2x of everything else, plus headsets, live vision, etc.

Thanks. Looks like I can turn that lump into $125-50 of credit with all the extra cables, assuming they won't double stack the 20% towards new on there.

You would only get the $20 hardware bonus. Also, the 20% towards new I think only applies to games traded in towards games that are currently in stock.

Has this question been answered somewhere in the thread?

I want to trade in Batman towards RB:B and the 20% bonus would be really nice.



Same here I want to know if there will be a trade-in promotion for the beatles! I find it hard to believe it only counts for MW2, ODST, and Batman.

I wanted them to do two seperate transactions earlier when I went in. One being a power trade for 20% more towards something new in store(or the 25% bump for pre-ordering Halo ODST or one of the other featured games). I only wanted them to do this because then I could technically stack two promos on different receipts.

But I'd have to hope that I could come back in with the $150 credit for the PS3 in like 2 minutes and say I wanna buy the PS3 and to switch my 'pre-order' from Halo ODST to a PS3 slim.

I'm sure it would've worked, but I was a bit annoyed that they didn't get what I wanted to do.

In the end, I traded a buttload of PS3 games and one PS2 game towards the PS3 and I got the following values:

Before promo(after Edge)

Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas:ps2:-$7.75($8.53)
Grand Theft Auto IV:ps3:-$8($8.80)
Prototype:ps3:$23.00($25.30)
Warhawk(game only, no bundle):ps3:-$1.50($1.65)
Star Wars: Force Unleashed:ps3:-$8($8.80)
Haze:ps3:-$3.75($4.13)
Viking: Battle For Asgard:ps3:-$1.50($1.65)
Prince Of Persia:ps3:-$8($8.80)
Marvel Ultimate Alliance:ps3:-$8($8.80)
Heavenly Sword:ps3:$10($11)
Conan:ps3:$1.75($1.93)
Saint's Row 2:ps3:-$8($8.80)
Bioshock:ps3:-$15($16.50)
Mercenaries 2: World In Flames:ps3:-$5.50($6.05)
Metal Gear Solid 4:ps3:-$8($8.80)
Silent Hill Homecoming:ps3:$5.25($5.77)
Condemned 2: Bloodshot:ps3:$1.50($1.65)

I looked back about 10 pages or so and didn't see this answered.

Does anyone know how they are with transferring credit from one pre-order to another? I was thinking about trading some games in on MW2 or ODST to get the bonus, then going back in a week or two and transferring that credit to Borderlands. Do they allow this?

Yes, you can do this. They may or may not give you some gruff about it, but its absolutely doable.

warhawks a great game. 1.50 for trade smh lol its not even worth trading it in if any one was thinking about it


Great game? An online ONLY game is 'great'? Pfffft!! Every time I played, all the morons who spend 24/7 playing the fuckin' game trounced me in like 1/2 a second. So, no thanks. I couldn't stand the game, but I only had my copy to play against my one buddy, who hasn't even been on in almost 2 weeks now.

wow for someone with such an emo name you got totally screwed over


Totally screwed over? How so? I traded them a PS3 that had a line that would scroll up the screen while i'm playing a game(so the av port was possibly damaged and getting worse). The system I traded was already serviced once by Sony. So therefore, they got a system that wasn't at 100%.

Moreover, I spent $5 at most for a majority of the games I traded in(save for GTA:SA, which I got in trade from a buddy of mine), so yeah....I got screwed, huh?:lol:

Thing is, I shoulda did the game trades a day or two before I did the system, then transferred all of that credit over to buy the system. But I had a brain fart and figured I could just do two seperate transactions yesterday and be done with it in one shot. But even though I didn't get the 30-35% more, I still made out better than what I paid for all those games.

Hey, when you sign up for the Edge card on a trade in, do they take the $15 off the base trade in value and then add the bonus, or does the bonus apply first and then they deduct the $15?

trading in a game for a dollar and some change isn't even worth it. you could get a random person off the street to give you more than that.

I admit, I was a sucker for trading in some of those games for the pittance I got for them, but I did it because of the convenience of it. I pulled a non-CAG move and just traded everything in at once because I was lazy. I admit it.

Besides which, the values balanced out in the end because I used cheap credit or clearance sales to get a majority of those titles.

I asked several people I know from CAG and PSN if they wanted any of the games, even listed the list in it's entirety, but they only told me AFTER I traded them in what they would've wanted.

Either you tell me you want X or Y game right on the spot or I go with the easiest route for me.

I would of fought harder for Mario Kart and SSB on the Cube unless you're getting rid of it. Also, why in the world are you trading in Batman already? Did you beat it? I hope you at least did it towards one of the 25/35% power trade games so you got it up to over $40 credit after bonuses.

quick question, do they normally check 360 systems when you trade them in and do they accept rrod systems...mines out of warranty and ive sold alot of games to get close to the ammount for a new arcade
