what the f are you talking about?


My wording was off. ECA


No, i'm pretty sure after all we know, you're still wrong. But that's another discussion.

Either way, your response to jody in this thread is pretty evident of how much of an ass you are.



Let's talk about video games

Traded in MW2 and went back again when I saw what they were giving for L4D2. I decided to buy the Edge card because I might payoff in the long. Clerk remembered me, spent 10 minutes reversing my previous trade to make sure I got the Edge bonus. I know there is some Gamestop hate so far in this thread but some of these guys are real nice.

Most Gamestop hate is just blind bandwagon hate.

People crave acceptance.

Just a heads up, JP. In the Wii list, you list Dragon Ball Z BT2, BT3 and Budokai 3. Budokai 3 is a PS2 exclusive, so I think that one might've been intended to be listed as BT3.

It's been years (8 or 9) since I worked at Gamestop, but back then all prices and TIV updated in the system in the AM...as with most retailers, it would be to difficult to have an active price database.

Just traded a few in on my lunch break a few hours ago -

:360: Magna Carta 2 - 15.00
:ds: New Super Mario Bros. - 15.00
:ds: Castlevania: Dawn of Sorrow - 4.00

All are base TIV.

Between the promo and my Edge card, it added up to nearly $55! Now I don't have to be jealous of all the people scoring crazy TIVs with Mass Effect 2 (which I can't do because I love the game too much to part with it). I am definitely liking this deal - makes me wish I hadn't unloaded so many games during the last promo.

The high TIV for ME2 is great for all of us. Those of you trading it in get back nearly everything you spent (although in the form of credit), while those of us that don't have it yet shouldn't have a problem finding a copy during the next B2G1.

I traded in a couple of Wii games plus a bunch of games for older systems. I updated the CAG database wherever I could, but some I couldn't input the data for some of the older games. Anyway, here are the base TIVs for the games I traded in:

Wii

Punchout - $19
Tigers Woods 10 - $18.25

Gamecube

Super Mario Sunshine - $6
Metroid Prime - $.75
Sega Soccer Slam - $.60

PS2

MLB Power Pros - $1
NBA Street Vol. 3 - $2
Peter Jackson's King Kong - $1
Phantom Brave - $.75
Genji - $.50
Project Snowblind - $.55
Splinter Cell - $.90
Xenosaga: Episode 1 - $1.50

DS

New International Track & Field - $1.75

GBA

Defender of the Crown - $.25
Mario Tennis - $2.25
Wade Hixton's Counter Punch - $.25

Obviously, I hardly got anything for the older games, but overall, I still came away with over $90 after Edge + promo.

Ok, probably stupid question but...
On the $40 towards FF13/ GOW3, is it an additional, or is it just $40 for the 2 games, because a lot of those games are worth more than $20 each.

If it's just $40 bucks I should probably just do the additional 50% on trade-in right?

The deals don't stack. Only the Edge discounts stack with any other offer.

Purchased on 11/25/2009 B2G1 Free Deal - PS3 all used (w/edge)

Dragon Age: $49.99
Borderlands: $49.99
COD MW2: $0 (this would be the free one)

Cost per game incl Tax $107.64/3 = $35.88

Sold on 02/22/2010 50% Bonus Trade-In + Edge
Dragon Age: TIV $31.76
Borderlands: TIV $37.19
COD MW2: TIV $36.80

Total Credit: $105.75

So basically I got to play 3 top games for 3 months for the cost of a few dollars.

Moral of the story is that Gamestop is good if you buy games at the right time (B2G1 Free) and sell at the right time (50% Bonus). If you just go in and buy and trade games at random you will get ripped off.

That's not what I meant. I wanted to know if it was 40 bucks towards FF13 on top of the TIV of the games, or if it was just a flat 40$

This thread is to post the base values not values with all promos applied as this just leads to confusion.

For the FFXIII/GoW3 deal, they apply the trade-in value of what you get toward the two games so that it takes $40 off.

It's just a flat $40. Do the 50% deal, most times that deal isn't so great unless one of the game's TIV dropped below $20.

It's great to know you got more with the trade in, edge, etc, but it'd help to just post the base trade in values to avoid confusion.
