Oh, well, damn. Now I'll wonder for the rest of the day how much they've changed in the last week.


Many of the middle tier games have not changed much. Even Max Payne 3 is still $16 base for the entire week. I am trading 6 today that never changed since the 100% bonus started. All are between $3-7 base. I would not worry too much.

MW3 is $17 base today. Is that up or down? I'm pretty sure that's changed, but I can't remember if it was higher or lower recently.


higher. I think it dropped to $14 with the sale last week.

Well, left my games home this morning by mistake. Meant to grab 'em on the way out of the door. Guess I'll be trading them in tomorrow. Here's hoping prices don't drop in the next 30 hours.

I don't know if this has been answered before but I have two questions.

1. We can trade in games that we didn't buy from Bestbuy , correct?

2. Does the online estimate include the normal value + 100% trade in or just the normal value ( e.g. $5 for one case)?

Thanks in advance.

1. Yes, though I've heard of Best Buys that require a receipt or proof of purchase for some trade-ins. I don't know the details, unfortunately.

2. Just the normal value--e.g., Max Payne 3 is listed as trading in for $16 online, and you would get $32 total when you trade in-store.

Does bestbuy still take DSi's for tradein? How much do they give us now? Their console tradein thing on their site is glitchy as all hell and rarely works, it lists zero for 95% of the consoles even though they still take them.

So is this a price cut for all the vaults, or just specific ones? The only ones I found were those Helghast looking helmets. Didn't see any others around, going to ask tomorrow and see what's up.

Honestly after seeing that Gears vault, I kinda want one. Would look absolutely sick on my future 360 lol.


Dang. I thought I deleted that link fast enough after seeing 1 store close has it!:lol:

Not sure about all the vaults. I saw the deal on SD some weeks back.

I see there's an ME3 vault, as well. Don't remember if BB has that 1 or not.

Ok so my trip to Best Buy went well. Traded in 6 games for $62. The guy up front told me about the 100% bonus and I said I already traded 37 games last week and he responds "you're that guy". Not that it was a lot but I think I was the 1st big trade for them Sunday so I must have made the rounds.

Yeah it is cases like this where I end up getting rid of a game because the TIV is just too good to pass up. I am never actively looking to flip but in cases like this I just trade for the added value. Same thing happened with BF3. It was DOTD for $19.99 a few weeks ago so I bought it. Well, the TIV last Sunday with bonus was $29.40 so I just had to trade it. The great thing about most video games is the price continues to drop over time so take you credit when it works in your favor, even if your backlog is not very deep. The game will come back eventually to a price worth buying again.

The estimator says Mario Kart Wii is $10 base, so it would be $20 with the 100% promo, $21 if you have GC Unlocked

If I pick up a Vita, I'd probably get Modnation and Mortal Kombat first. Sucks the reviews for Resistance aren't that great, I'd love a good FPS on it. I have about $1,000 credit to Gamestop I was saving for a Wii U splurge but I'm pretty sour on it after E3. I might just pick up a Vita in the next few months. Still hoping to see a bundle by the end of the summer.

Not sure, but it's not really necessary. You could just list the games and if someone is interested they can just look up the base value on the Best TIV estimator and figure it out from there.

Traded in 26 old games and got $236 after the promotion. The newest game I traded in was Bulletsorm. Most of the games were like Soul Calibur IV and Stranglehold - games I had no intention of ever playing again and were just taking up shelf space. Happy with my decision :)

Ugh, they are doing updates to BB.com again at the moment. Hoping nothing drops (like MW3).

Anyone know the TIV of Red Dead Redemption?
