I should've thought of that, Fuck I bought a minty flippable game instead, lol.


I did the same thing, but I did have "aggressive Inline" for gamecube in my hands, as it would only be a .89 game until I saw Alan Wake sitting there.

Quick question, if I bought a used game from GS and I removed the stickers with the price on them, can I still return it? I do have the receipt.


Yes

This is after +50% and Power Up Rewards. :) It's nice to see the final total. I bought Skyrim, XIII-2, and Skyward sword during B2G1 day... and kept all their cases/manuals and Zelda's soundtrack.

What can I say, I like to keep the cases and manuals just in case I ended up buying caseless games in the future (which is likely to happen more than naught).

Yes, this is especially likely to happen when stupid case hoarders trade games without cases ;)

I think they all should charge a refurb fee for disc only trades becuase they then have the hassle and expense of providing a generic case and they are harder to sell. I almost never buy a game if it does not have the original case and may avoid it even if the manual is missing.

Funny thing today at Gamestop, one of the pre-own game I got was Sonic the Hedgehog for the PS3 (game only, for Friend) and I actually have the box and manual for that one somewhere :D

And a not so funny thing, I nabbed Fire Emblem Path of Radiance (Gamecube Game) that has box and manual and ad for subscribing to Nintendo Power... but an employee stole the game :( so I got the case and stuff for free.

Oh pishposh, the guy transacting next to me unloaded like 15 disc-only PS3/360 games. If it makes the situation better, I didn't have cases for the DS games as I got them all from a co-worker.

I wouldn't worry about the DS cases. They'll most likely throw them out anyway.

seriously....why would u do that? cuz u might be a caseless game? if ur the type of person to keep just the case and the manual, i know ur the type to go and try to find a game with the case and manual....there is no benefit to you keeping the manual and case, go back to gamestop and put that in as well...i feel like there will be repercussions if enough games are traded in without the case and manual, gamestop may institute fees because no one really wants to buy a game without at least the case.

Aside from keeping them as a "just in case I end up with a caseless lot of games bundle on eBay/Craigslist" kind of reason, another reason I keep them is the fact that Gamestop doesn't pay me any more even if I did provide the case, manuals, registration cards, etc. Just like they don't charge me any less if I grab an originalcaselessmanualless game from them.

If there is a serious increase of certain titles being turned in game only, wouldn't Gamestop simply throw them in their warehouse for online distribution anyway? They do warn users of the online store that original case and manual may not be included.

In any case, I don't foresee Gamestop implementing refurbishing fees anytime soon, especially with an increase of trade in competitors on the rise. The only game store that I knew of that does the game refurb fee kinda... went out of business.

C'mon man, you're just screwing another gamer out of the case and manual and cover art. What are you going to do with those cases and manuals anyways? You don't need them anymore when you don't have the game.

You're speaking like I would never own those games in some form ever again. The last time I traded games to Gamestop was 3 years ago (Boxless Sonic the Hedgehog for PS3 + Completely boxed PS2 games). Today, I bought Sonic the Hedgehog for PS3 game only, which works perfect with my case and manual that I still kept 3 years ago.

I do most of my game selling to friends anyway, and they definitely get their cases and manuals when available. Only reason I decided to trade in games to Gamestop today was because with the bonus, they offered more trade in value than the Navy affiliated store down the street on 8 of my 14 games for possible trade ins.

I usually trade my games in mint and complete just because that's what I want to receive in return but I really don't blame him at all for trading in disc only. It's irritating yes but it's just a lousy Gamestop policy imo. They shouldn't allow it. Since they do, this is what they (and then the customers) get for it. Apparently not enough buyers care for it to be a huge issue.

I really don't understand what the hell people do with their games anyway to lose parts and destroy them so much.

To be hypocritical, I've done it a couple times myself just because I wanted a couple "just in case" blu ray cases.

:rofl: People getting on SEGAMew for trading in games disc/cart only when a good chunk of Gamestops' inventory IS disc/cart only is just hilarious to me.

Gamestops' primary customer base is soccer moms and jackoffs that don't give a shit about if a game comes complete/mint as long as it works. CAG's are maybe 5%(probably less) of their business.

It's just hilarious though.

Only problem I could see happening is at some point in the future SegaMews' GS stores go refurb fee happy like a few around here did. All it takes is a change in managers/district managers.:-#

what a dick move no wonder when I go to buy older games they most likely dont have cases just that generic plastic I didnt even think people would do this.

To counteract his negative karma, you should collect cases from dumpsters and all of your friends and turn them in to GS after printing inserts for all the games they might possibly get in.

Unless you live in his town and bought one of them games he traded in, STFU. All this feigned indignancy in this world pisses me off. Like "I know I live 4000 miles away, but I just can't believe that you would screw me out of a case if I came that far and bought one of the games you traded!!! The horror!!! You're a D-I-C-K, dick, dick dick."

If you're really that outraged, you should start a corporation like GameStop that only accepts perfect games with all cases and manuals.

Well, I don't know about him or anyone else, but I sell the cases and manuals on eBay, so there is definitely a benefit to keeping them. If you don't want to buy a game without a case/manual, go find a copy that has one (or buy it new since that's usually cheaper than GameStop's used prices anyway). We live in a world of options, mon frer.

For the record, I keep the cases an manuals too. I buy so many games at garage sales, it is nice to be able to make a complete copy.

DS games you should always keep the case/manual since every gamestop in my area trashes them anyway.

I have NSMB 64 on ds and SM64 DS...I may have to trade them in...Actually I think I have mario kart too. IDK where it is though.

I've got enough points to get the $50 off any gamestop purchase... Is it possible to apply this on top of the $50 off that is already? When I go to gamestop's website it's saying that the PS3 has a full price drop and is $199.99. It doesn't say it as an offer.

so in theory.

$199.99 - $50 any gamestop purchase = $149.99 plus whatever else I find to toss in lol
