Well, you're getting the extra $10.00 for the 3 trade offer, but I think there're at least a few people who would've given you $25.00 for each of those two games. I know, I know...convenience. But, you probably are the only one trading them in to Gstop.:lol:


I acually stacked the card with the re operation raccon city preorder and got 20 for each vita game. I also down a pre order for ass creed 3 to get that sweet steel book (first steel book case ive ever owned for a game).

Was in a GS today and had them look up these two.
Batman Arkham City (xbox) is still holding at $23 (base)
Mass effect 3 (xbox) was $25 base, although they'll give $30 as part of a promotion they are running through 4/4

Are people really trading in ME3? Craigslist, people. You'll easily make $45 compared to the $30 credit. If the $15 extra is of no use to you, just mail it to me.

Not everyone likes going through all those hassles (And risks), of someplace like that.

As far as Gamestop goes, i agree there are better easier deals. (Namely Best Buy for 35-37.50 trade in). Either way, its their choice

Too bad since you're gonna miss out on all the good 3DS games coming this year.


Really? Like what? Kid Icarus and more of the same Mario stuff? I have seen the entire line-up moving forward and there was nothing that I could see that I wanted to play. If a miracle occurs, and something worthwhile comes out, and they re-release a better version of the hardware, I will just pick up another one.

You must be very hard to please.

You'll probably trade the Vita in a matter of weeks.

Yeah, every gamestop in the area has at least 3 used copies of that turd.
Otherwise, it's slim pickings for now (used anyways):)


They have used Uncharted at the 3 Gamestops by my house. I think a lot of people didn't care about going back and getting all the photos/treasure.

I, like many others, would gladly take the $15 hit to not have to deal with people and general BS of Craigslist. I think of it as a convenience fee. I'd also pay $15 to not see this thread consistently full of posts uselessly hassling the people who choose to do business with Gamestop, but that's another matter.

I would love for the Wii U to blow people away at E3. With the news that the next XBOX isn't going to debut at E3 or "anytime soon" according to Microsoft, and me sitting on $950 credit to Gamestop and no desire at all to own a Vita or 3DS, I need to fucking spend it on something.

You didn't ask me, but your name is SuperMariofreaking64, your avatar is a freaking N64, you're talking shit about Vita, you think the 3DS has upcoming good games besides Nintendo's first-party lineup. You think Wii U will be good despite nothing suggesting one way or the other.

Seriously, I think Nintendo games are great too, but whenever I play one, I'm always like, "Aren't I a little too old for this?" I picked up Mario Galaxy 2 and just can't get into it despite recognizing that it's a good game.

Back on topic, I'm surprised Batman: AC still gets $23 base. I might check it out this weekend.

:applause:
Couldn't have called him out better myself. Honestly the 3DS is an okay system. I got 2 of them for my boys, but mostly for durability as the cartridges were a better option to the previous UMD format. Plus it's a great "kids" system. Even then they only play it when I won't let them use my Vita, phone, or iPad.

I own all 3 consoles so you can't call me anything.

I was not talking anything bad about Vita and I may get one down the line, but clearly more support is going in the way of 3DS. What I should of said was, if he can't find anything good on 3DS, what will make him hold on to the Vita?

Also thinking you're too "old" for Nintendo is ridiculous thinking.

Hey, I owned all the systems from last generation, but I'll be the first to admit that I was a Dreamcast fanboy. There's nothing wrong with favoring one system over another. (I do think it's interesting that Dreamcast and Wii were so similar, and the similarities continue with Wii U's screen-in-a-controller like Dreamcast's VMU.)

As far as the 3DS goes, it has to be one of Nintendo's biggest disappointments since Gamecube. Remember that it launched at $249.99 and it dropped so much so quickly. It cannot compare to the quality of the original DS's library (one of my favorite systems), and much of the excitement for Vita right now is that it is console-quality, so that probably appeals to many people who aren't impressed with DS anymore. Obviously, if Mario and Zelda rank among your top franchises, it's not like you have any other choice.

The 3DS had a rough start no doubt but it's starting to pick up quickly. I think getting rid of it would be too soon since E3 is right around the corner and there are new games to be announced there and the same thing goes for the Vita as well. But there are clearly plenty of choices other than Mario and Zelda.

Sometimes the earliest 1-2 copies of a game traded in are from the managers if they get the game for free. Many GS managers aren't what we would call gamers and even if they do play games, will only play a limted range of games depending on their sex so if they get a game like ME they don't want for free they can't sell it on Amazon/EBay/CL or get fired but are allowed to trade it.

Yeah.. I've known this for awhile. Slipped my mind, but sadly you know there are people out there that will trade in new releases "just because".

Someone traded in a :360: ME3 CE (Just the game discs) yesterday.

Also had someone trade in a :ps3: ME3 (Reg) about a week ago. Didnt even use the online code. He said his GF bought it for him, he didnt like it, so he traded it in for something else.

Yes, I sold it today. Not sure if there are different state laws where you live, but in SoCal, we can sell it once it's traded in.

it's not ridiculous when you honestly feel like the games aren't as mature or dumb downed versions compared to other systems. Sorry but there is more truth to that statement than you clearly admit. Reason why the Wii is crashing hard after being a huge seller early. The games in the end are not up to par with other consoles/PC.
