Bah, just called Gamestop to ask how much TIV for Tekken 6 and Avatar: The Game (both 360), and he told me he couldn't give me that info over the phone...



Sorry to hear that, thats just someone being extremely lazy.

Doesn't GameStop have a policy that requires them to not give out TIVs over the phone? Or is that spiel they always give me a bunch of crap?

There is no policy that hinders them from giving TIV over the phone. Most of the time they feed you that bullshit if they are busy, or just don't want to look anything up.

Ughh, I hope I can get my copy to GS fast enough that they don't notice the flipping and kill the deal. I just need to trade in 1!

Says on the promo page for trade 2 specific games and get $40 off FFXIII or GoWIII that they do. Board's required for that promo.

Or policy.


Speaking as a part time GS employee I can say that there is no policy. Either it was insanely busy and the GS clerk didn't have the time or ability, or yes they could be acting like lazy douches.

PS3 Dark Void - $16.75 Base
PS3 Dragon Age - $19.25 Base


You can get $31.25 for Dragon Age PS3 on Amazon. However w/ the bonus trade in right now, you'd be getting about that @ Gamestop.

Hmm...can you explain how you are making a profit this way? The game is $60 new & I'm guessing about $55 used? Even w/ the EDGE card you're getting the same amount you are paying for a used copy there. Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm not quite getting how this would be great way to make profit on store credit.

Guessing it's assuming the price of 49.99 they have on their site is in store as well. But says online only price, so I'm not quite sure how to work buying/trading in ME2 without running the risk of it plummeting stupid low by the time you receive it from ordering it online.

I think you get around $3.75 for XBLA Unplugged. Bought a bunch of copies of the game for $2 a pop on ebay. Traded them in to get Devil Summoner 2 w/plush and Chulip.

Looks like I may go trade in a few, not crappy, but games that I never play so I feel like I should take advantage of this deal.

GOODBYE DARK SECTOR FOR GOOD!

Ok, here is how it works (not like it would be the first time I made money flipping games from one GS to another only a mile away)

ME2 In store used price 54.99 (assuming your store has a copy)
used price is $49.49 after edge card discount
Trade price TODAY with 50% promo and 10% edge card bonus = $56

Net result $6.51 free credit by trading from one GS to another.
YMMV on buying from and selling to the same GS location in the same day. (dont be dumb people)

Also Sales Tax has not been figured into this since it is a nonissue if you are using GS credit to pay in many states (see OP) and those that are lucky enough to live in one of the few states that have no sales tax on any retail purchases (like MT)

So before I make the trip, I don't have an edge card but I can still trade games toward the 25% bonus deal (BFBC2) and get the 50% trade in aswell? I've never done much business with them and don't know if I need an edge card to stack that deal.

Was gonna trade: (360)
BF: Bad Company
NFS: Shift (not even opened it yet, suppose I'll have to in order trade it)
Call of Juarez: Bound in Blood

if the extra 25% stacks with the 50% going on base TIV's I should about have enough to cover Bad Company 2 with those.

25% and 50% do not stack. Choose 1 or the other.

Figured I'd post in here to help out jp.

All for 360

Civ Rev - $6.75 base, $10.81 after Promo and EDGE
X-Men Origins: Wolverine Uncaged - $7.25 base, $11.59 after Promo and EDGE
Star Wars: Force Unleashed - $5.00 base, $8.00 after Promo and EDGE
Lost Planet - $1.75 base, $2.81 after Promo and EDGE
Godfather 2 - $5.00 base, $8.00 after Promo and EDGE
Eat Lead: The Return of Matt Hazard - $4.00 base, $6.40 after Promo and EDGE

With all this trade in, picked up Borderlands for about $7. I'm ok with that.

anyone know what they are giving on a 360 console? I know it varies based on HDMI or not, etc.

in my local store, it makes no difference if it has HDMI or not. It depends on the controller (wired or wireless)

I wanna say 70-80

I actually asked about trading in my Arcade unit when I traded ME2 this morning. It's still $80.

Ah, I get it now, jp made a new thread which led to me not being subscribed to it any more and thinking the other thread was the "official" one. Stop doing that! ;)

In any case, I have ME2 ready to go as I just finished my Insanity playthrough last night - what a coincidence!
