lolwut, how did the wii version of this game become worth 2 bucks more than ps3 and xbox. Everytime I've seen a COD game, the wii one is cheaper.

For people who are having problems getting the promo to work at their gamestop. The deal is not done automatically in the system. They have a "Marketing Manuel" or "Marketing Guide" for this week and there is a barcode in there they have to scan.

I was at Gamestop yesterday and I was the first person to try and use the promo so the guy wasn't sure how to do it. He called the district supervisor and so I watched what he was doing. So I'd just say for anyone who is having bad luck tell them the gamestop employee to check their marketing manual or whatever it is called (someone can correct me if they know the name) for this week.

This is true. I traded in 4 games today and saw on the receipt that I only got 10% on each game. I went back and asked them if there was a mistake. I was sure that Skyward Sword was on the list. So, I looked at the handout that had and looked it up. The manager finally told the worker that she had to scan the promo manually.

I didn't mean for the manager to lecture her saying "I told you guys to leave this out because you have to do it manually". Maybe I'll fill out the survey to help her.

Base values from yesterday, June 22.

Heavy Rain - 15
Super Smash Bros Brawl - 25
Call of Duty Black Ops 360 - 23

Edit: For those who do the preorder bonus bump, the employee has to scan the coupon code in some promotional booklet in order to receive the bonus. I think that should be added to the OP as a reminder to avoid being shafted by GS.

Seriously wish I'd knew that when I was in the store last night. Now I'm stuck at home babysitting my brother who has the stomach flu and I can't leave the house.

Praying that Blop's TIV doesn't drop any more before I can head out >.<

They are lying too you, once the trade is complete the credit is yours. You can transfer or cancel a preorder. I do it all the time.


on a personal level, I wouldn't do it too many times

If that was reported, then was someone was actually abused. The reality is GS has no corporate rules against transferring or canceling any preorder. I suspect they would actually get into trouble with the local pawn laws if they reduced the actual value after the trade was complete.

If all else fails however, you take possession of the game, ask for a gift receipt, and then return it to another store. 9/10 because they cannot connect the game back to the actual purchase method, and they will give you cash back. I've on occasion had to specifically refuse cash, and asked them to give me a gift card. I do this to keep my GS monies from being wasted on non gaming stuff :)


I don't see why GS would give you cash for a gift receipt, don't they usually only give store credit, i.e. gift cards for gift receipts? This is for almost all retail stores that I can think of.

This is actually the safest method, rather than trying to argue about transferring the credit, and having the manager possibly tell you he will take away trade in value (even if it is possibly illegal)

6/23
Smash Brothers Brawl - $25
New Super Mario Wii - $22
LA Noire PS3 dropped to $24

Pretty happy with the prices. Traded in Smash Bros + Mario Wii and put it towards Uncharted 3. After 40% bonus + 10% PUR it came out to $70.50 for just those 2 games.

Decided to preorder Skyrim and Saints Row also and she gave me a free copy of Game Informer since a $10 off coupon I had wouldn't work on it. was too stupid to try to apply it to the pre-orders lol didn't think about it until after the fact. It says it works on in stock items only though so probably wouldnt have worked. Anyway sweeet deal.

PS3
Monopoly Streets - $15
Battlefield Bad Company 2 - $14 (not LE or Ultimate Ed.)

I paid off Uncharted 3 also via the Dragon Age 2 and shift 2 deal at Bestbuy with the @gamer coupons. If you got BB gc to burn you can use it on the other titles on the list that you want.

Anyone know the tiv for a later model white xbox 360 120 gb? just curious. play my ps3 way more, can't find any prices.

It's a core + controllers + HD.

In other words, $30 for the system (w/ 1 controller, cables, etc), $7 for a second controller, <$20 for the HD (last value from January), and an extra $25 for the promotion. All totalled, probably around $70 for everything.

Cause I'm sick of seeing ghosts, and I know how it's all gonna end

There's no triumph waiting, there's no sunset to ride off in

We all want to be great men, there's nothing romantic about it

I just want to know that I did all I could with what I was given

I just want to sell out my funeral.

I just want to be enough for everyone.

No, actually. I've generally had good experiences with ordering from Gamestop.com

Just not this time. I usually don't get a manual or something. Not two thirds of my shipment coming incomplete. Generic artwork, generic case, and no manuals. That's overkill.

I had a similar conflict as well. What influenced my decision in the end was a recent TIV drop, which even though would still yield a higher TIV (combined with their current or upcoming bonuses), wouldn't be worth it in the end, considering I could make better use with a comparable amount of credit on Amazon.

You should be able swap those generic cases at your local store, and not go through the whole return/rebuy thing.

That's pretty much the main reason why I don't hesitate ordering from their site from time to time. It can be a pain if your stores don't carry copies of every game from your order, or if they only have copies in generic cases, though. I usually plan my trips accordingly.

What did you expect? Read through this thread and all the other GS threads and you'll see tons of people either saying they traded in their games without a case or manual or recommending people trade in their games disc-only. If everyone trades in games that way, that's what you''ll get in return. We can't have it both ways.
