Sounds like a good deal. And the initial reviews of FNR4 are promising. I called my nearby GameStop just to make sure they were aware of the deal. The guy on the phone said it didn't matter if I traded in 360 or PS3 games as long as they were on the list. I don't have a 360, so will have to see what I can find on clearance at WalMart and Target. I think the Target I live by has many more 360 clearance games.

I had the same problem as a few others. I bought three 12.48 games from a Target right next to the Gamestop and didn't unwrap them in case the deal didn't work and was told they cannot accept shrink wrapped games. Asked if I could just "open them". No dice.

So I went to another Gamestop traded them in (CSR didn't know about the 59.99 deal so he had to check) and it worked like a charm. Ended up getting me around 65$ so I had around .40 to put on my edge card. FNR4 for around 41 total. Great deal thanks alot OP.

And IGN just rated the game 8.8 so I guess I'll give it a shot.

To who have done this: Do they still give you the 10% boost on the base TIV of the games you're trading in?


They didn't at my store because I still had to pay the $3 something in taxes.

Hmm... so if you can find 3 $10 games at Target to trade in, that's about $32 in cash.

Trade em in at GS, pay the extra ~3 in tax for FNR4... so basically FNR4 costs you $35.

Not bad.

Basically the same as the EA sims card dealio

For those who have none of the titles LOTR Conquest is $10 at Target and L4D and Raw are $13. So buy all 3 and you get Fight Night for around $35.

this deal really blows before gamestop asked for trade in 2 games plus pay another $20 for the fallout 3 deal back then

only way you profit is finding some games across target clearances but I live in a city with a lot of people and most of the stuff rarely make it to the 75% off mark off

That's possibly the most retarded thing I've ever heard of. Wow. I didn't think Gamestop was that stupid. Sounds more like the employees are douchebags more than anything else. Unseal the games before you go in, problem solved in the future though.

I guess its kinda like people who enforce the "one coupon per visit" thing in restaurants or something, although I've never actually had anyone enforce it. WTF is the difference if you walk out and back in? Stupidity boggles the mind.

EDIT: Also, I wonder if you were like "okay I'll go home, play it, and come back tomorrow, the end"


Well, it makes no sense if you don't think like they (or their management) do. They assume anyone bringing in sealed games just stole them from the Walmart (or whatever) next door. Thus, letting you go outside and open them and then bring them in to trade still wouldn't make sense. Yeah, sure, if you opened them in the first place then they still wouldn't know if they were stolen or not so it still is rather ridiculous. But I guess the thinking is that someone who is stealing them would want to keep them sealed for maximum value until they were sure they could get something for them. But the same is true for legitimate flippers (ie, those who buy them at places like Target and trade them to GS). You may want to keep them sealed in case the value drops so you can then return them (legitimately, using a receipt) wherever you got them from. So I see the desire of CAGs to keep things sealed. But really, there's enough info on CAG about game trading, especially during deals like this, that you should be safe opening games the day you plan to trade them in. And like I said before, you really ought to consider keeping the nice new minty cases and giving GS your older ones anyway so I see no reason not to open them in advance.

I have 4 of the games on this list: GTA IV, Saints Row 2, Sonic Colelction, and UFC. But I only have one I really want to part with with the Sonic Collection. Although I've already beat GTA IV and Saints Row 2 and am getting tired of UFC. Dunno what to do, maybe I'll figure something out. I dunno if I'll ever go through GTA IV or Saints Row 2 again.


CML for UFC, if you have the 360 version that is.

Why is Grid for 360 still on these trade in lists? It was released June of 2008 and is not rare by any means. It must be one of those games they can always sell when it gets traded in. I guess I just don't see it.

I'm loving this and going to head up tomorrow and do it. I'm very interested in FNR4.

I've got a copy of NHL 09 which I don't play anymore and will become obsolete come September 9th which is the day NHL 10 is supposed to be out.

Same with Fifa 09 which has a new version coming out almost exactly a month after NHL.

For my final title I guess I'll trade my Madden 09 CE which also never gets any play, and Madden 10 will be out in August! This one kind of hurts because I kinda like Head Coach and it isn't a yearly release. I haven't played it in forever though, and it can probably be had as the stand-alone version super cheap if I ever get the hankering to play it again down the line.

Just be sure you check the trade in values they give you. They also have a promotion for 20% extra trade value when you trade stuff in towards FNR4(or Madden or NCAA). For example, if I go by the trade values of my games according to the thread on this site it would be like 48.50..but NHL 09 hasn't been updated since April so that has likely gone down. This means both deals work out almost exactly the same for me...but for those of you with Edge card as well make sure you are getting the best deal, assuming you're not trading in some of the lover valued games on the list....many of which I'm very surprised to see on there too.

I traded in NHL and FIFA to Amazon for about $20 each. With the extra $50/$75 bonus, much better deal.

If you're serious, you got a deal.


Riddick alone I can sell for $32 on Amazon at the moment...If you give me about 2 days after Fight Night 4's release, I'll find it for $50-55. So yeah, I would take you up on that deal, and I'm not the only one who thinks this "deal" isn't worth mentioning.

Even if you can find 3 of these games on the list for $15, you're still wasting your time because you could have sold them for $25-30 each... But whatever, buy into their offer, glad it's not my money being wasted.

So, what are the odds of returning this game to another GameStop since I Really don't want it, but it seems better than the 40% deal they have going on.


Ask for a gift receipt. They don't show the trade in transactions. Then return it to another store for credit.

Probably going to do this today with my PS3 versions of QoS, MX vs ATV, and either GTA IV (to get later on 360) or Madden CE (to later get 2010)

Wasn't even considering FNR4 before this thread, thanks OP & GS!

Took advantage of this deal yesterday by trading in RBSV2, Heavenly Sword, and Lord of the Rings: Conquest (thanks Target 9.98).

Of course the GS employee didn't know about the offer, and said "Wow, the total trade in before this offer would have been like $24 pre-Edge". I think it was around $10 for LOTR, 8 for Heavenly Sword and 6 for RBSV2.

Hmmm, I have been looking for a reason to get rid of my 360 Bioshock, but I can't think of 2 other games I would let go for $20 or less...


You can just give Bioshock to me of course :) Just name me a price.

AFAIK you can trade in 3 xbox 360 games & get the PS3 version of FN4. I don't think GS locks you into the system your trade-ins happen to be for.

Wow, wish I would've seen that before I traded away 9 games this weekend. Pretty good deal if you're still sitting on those $10 Best Buy games or stuff from Target Clearance.



Exactly!! I traded Quantum of solace (paid $10 BB)
Bioshock (bought on eBay $9 new!!)
Rainbow Six Vegas 2 (Target clearance $7.48)

Finally a decent Gamestop deal!!

BTW Fight Night is INCREDIBLE!!

Better deal for you maybe. I have no interest in getting any new systems. I looked into Amazon as well, but they don't even seem to be buying back the Madden CE. Besides that I've been reading some horror stories about trading in with Amazon.

Got rid of 3 games I was never playing again. Prince of Persia., Uncharted and NBA 09. I had my favorite employee there and he allowed me to "get" FN4 and then immediately return it. I turned about 30 dollars in trade in to 63.59. Such a great deal!
