Been lurking forever and finally have something to contribute. For those of you that were burned by Best Buy's drop in trade-in values and have a Microcenter near you, here's a possible alternative. Microcenter has some trade in values advertised on their website and in the new sales paper. Notice the trade in value for Crysis 2. I've never personally traded there so if anyone has please post your experiences.

http://www.microcent...aming/used.html

YMMV, as some stores do not have trade-in capabilities.
Stores without trade-ins: 'Twin Cities/St. Louis Park, MN', 'Beltway/Rockville, MD' [add more when discovered]

Current trade in values as of 11/29/11 from the CAG community (Thanks fortunado for compiling and editing list)

(11/29/11) - Added some new values today. I overheard someone say that all the games MC buys get shipped off to their buyer and then redistributed among the stores that lack certain titles. At my store they will take one copy per game, per console, per day, per person. So it may be possible to just spread trades of duplicate games out over the course of a few weeks.

(4/1/12) - RAGE Anarchy Edition not being accepted at some stores due to UPC being different from what they allow (even though it is the "better" version). YMMV on this if the employee will override.

To keep the wiki current, try to enter the date you obtained the value.

I gave up shopping there when I overheard a salesperson pitching $189 virus protection for a customer's new MacBook Pro.

That place is where computer parts go to die.

damn my microcenter is like 30 miles away. But $75 credit for Crysis 2, FEAR 3 and Dead Space 2....might have to make that trip.

Anyone know a sure-fire way to exploit this? Should I simply make more Kongregate accounts using different emails to get more codes or should I delete and re-download the app as well?

I wouldn't buy games there but they have good prices occasionally such as the Intel i7 2600k was the cheapest anywhere (even after tax!) when I purchased it in early summer. Also, they have a wide variety of laptop & tablet pc cases.

I miss their trade any 9 games and get an extra 10 dollar promo they had 4 years ago.... I cleaned out a near by GS of their PS1/DC sports games that came up 10 cents-25 cents and traded it in for MC credit.... spent about 30 dollars in crap and got about 400 dollars in credit because of this promo.

I'm going to trade in Kirby's Epic Yarn today, so I'll try to remember to post a report afterwards. (The TIV is less than $20 at Amazon, and eBay prices are max of about $25 for used.)

I wish I had one of these near me, because most of them TIV prices are pretty damn good for some of the older stuff especially.

I didn't even know they did trade in's. Has anyone done one there? How well do they scrutinize your games? Are they just like Gamestop -- check for scratches, if none, then ok?

Fuck, I spent an entire hour there. The system kept crashing and eventually I just left. Apparently the system was down for other stores as well.

Okay, so I went to the store in Columbus, Ohio. They used to have a dedicated games section but a couple of months ago changed it over to "electronics", and now sell TVs and other stuff.

So, I go to the service desk and they know nothing about it... sales guys in the "elec." dept. know nothing about it, and claim that they used to do trade ins but don't anymore. I mention the ad, but they say not this location and they don't know any locations that do trade ins anymore. Go to the pick-up desk where repairs and service issues are handled, and one guy sort of remembers that they used to do it. Again, I point out the ad and they call a manager over. He is very nice about it, says he just found out about the ad himself and they really have no mechanism in place to take the trades. He acknowledges that it's their problem, though, because of the ad and decides to do my Kirby as a return "open box" and give me credit for $25. The clerk points out that they have no way to test the game, but they both look quickly and see that my game is complete, near mint (because we only played it twice before my 16-year-old son--who usually *loves* Kirby games--felt this was too childish).

So this actually doesn't take that long (15 minutes in the store tops), but I would definitely say it would be an adventure unless you call ahead of time to confirm they do this. I asked about TIV for other games, and no one knew so I'm lucky the ad had the price. In all, though, I walked out very happy... I got $26.69 credit (they gave me "back" the tax) and rather than put it on a merchandise return card the clerk agreed to put it back on my credit card. :)

Does anyone know if you need the game complete, with the manual and box? There's almost no information on the website. I might try to trade in Dead Space 2 this week regardless. It would be nice to know when the offer ends, too.

I know both the Microcenters in Northern and Southern California have dedicated gaming sections and they sell used games as far back as PlayStation 1 (though not many), so they should accept trade ins at those stores. I could have sworn I also read somewhere that they'll match all GameStop TIVs and beat them by a certain % or something like that. It could be worth someone's time to check to see if that policy still exists.

Most of the time their pricing is shit on games, but they usually have good items on clearance from time to time. That's mostly because I doubt many people shop there for games when theres a million other big box retailers in CA who have more competitive pricing, and there's even Fry's to compete with them for everything they sell in Microcenter. But I usually find myself making a couple of clearance purchases there every year.

The microcenter in Houston has a large dedicated gaming room, with its own employee, they have a huge wall of used games as well and lots of posters and stand ups everywhere. Really neat walking through there, they even have a section with nothing but gaming magazines.

I wonder how many of the same title they would accept? Sucks because I passed up several DeadSpace 2 for 360 at BBV yesterday because they're just not worth anything anymore.
