I haven't traded in anything since my last 5-6 pack of Loco Roco 2's and that was over a month ago easily, probably before they rolled out the PowerUp Rewards program around here.

tiv october 15 2010
gamestop

tomb raider underworld 2.50 - 3.00
force unleashed sith edition 18.00 - 21.60
skate 2 6.00 - 7.20
prince of persia 2.50 - 3.00
fable 2 2.50 - 3.00
dead rising 5.00 - 6.00
borderlands 9.00 - 10.80
bioshock 4.00 - 4.80
assasins creed 2.00 - 2.40

total 61.80

kind of crazy how bad tiv's are. i added it up in amazon and would have gotten 64.50... without 20% bonus.

on a side note, how long does it take to be able to post these prices in the live tracker?

Wait....what? They don't show the base prices anymore on the receipts? That's fuckin' stupid, if true. But then again I usually ask what the values are as they're scanning them so I can figure out each one as they go.;)


Not sure if it's everywhere, but at least on mine it didn't. It shows how much each promo added to the total amount then it shows the total after promos, but no base.

i tried to upload the prices in the tiv tracker and it said try again soon they dont let new people upload prices to keep it accurate.

dont know why anyone would want to tamper with it but i guess some people are odd.

You would be surprised how many people try to screw with the prices on a regular basis. All price updates go into a moderation queue until they are verified. That process is mainly used to weed out the Halo 3 $9999.99 inputs and stuff like that.

damnit why did they have to extend the 20% promo, i was hoping for something better. guess i'll probably trade my games in today since gs is the best option at the moment and the games i have will probably drop down in value by the time a new one starts

Amazon's price will likely go up, as it always does. Enslaved was around $26 a few days ago, now it's at $39.




yup. Most new games start at $25 and then fluctuate up or down a few weeks later. Its been like this for a long time now.

The TIV at FYE should be around $32($31.75 according to SecondSpin.com) and that's cash, credit would be I believe 20% more or so without having to have their discount card.

Just in case you want another option besides Amazon or GS. Toys R' Us and Best Buy's values are between $23 and $26.

MoH on PS3- $23

No I didn't trade it in, it was a quote given to the kid in line in front of me in store. I am currently renting the title from Blockbuster if you're looking at my trophy list.

wtf, why is that so low? I want to trade it in either GS or AMazon in a few weeks till I platinum it since its pretty lame and maybe buy COD7 or something. $23 is a joke though. Atleast should be mid $40s...

No base TIV at Gamestop is more than $30. Most new releases on PS360 now are anywhere from $20-$25 at launch. You have to stack with the percentage promos to get $30-$35 for it.

Also I can confirm the base TIV's no longer show on the receipts in St. Louis. You have to add up the promos and subtract from the total on the right to get the base value.

That is retarded. Gamestop's trade-in service is just that, a service. To write and complain about them not putting the base trade-in value on the receipt is... futile, at best.

I actually give GS a lil more credit than you.
Few hundred customers write about a POS change that can easily be reversed to make them happy for free...
I think it will happen ... but no not if only a couple write in.
and pretty please rethink the use of retarded.

lol it makes sense.

They don't like these threads, if people check a TIV on here and it's too low they don't come into the store. People who come into the store to check are more likely to say "fuck it" and trade it in even if they don't like the value. And more likely to spend money.
