Went yesterday to a GS and asked if they had any MK CE and the guy said he might, so he goes and checks and says they must have taken it the day before because he had seen it in the back and tells me they have a TE one :D . So i ask for the price and it rings up 34.99 new and he calls his manager and he says they can't sell it cause its defective. :cry: . so i finish my purchase and go. I was so excited for a moment.

Thanks for the info. I rarely check that thread, so I would've missed it for sure.

Added to OP. Wasn't able to check myself since I didnt open Wednesday.

There was a big list of conversions a week ago, but it was older games from 2-3 years ago (Nothing of interest).

You might want to list them too if possible. You never know, one of them probably is a hidden gem.


Im not sure if these are official conversions too but i was able to get the following games this week in-store that had new stickers on them but rang up as used too...

PS2:
1. Mana Khemia: Alchemist of Al-Revis
2. Soul Nomad

Well that explains why the alpha protocol I picked up on the 3rd was mint, lol. For a bit I thought it was luck....decent game btw, nothing phenomenal but for the price you could do worse.

Update with SR3 conversion & Cubic Ninja.

A bunch of DS games got converted as well, but it wasn't any titles people would interested it. (Mainly shovel-ware)

I'm sure that this must have happened a while ago, but I found one in store and bought it (in aB2G1 no less): Two Worlds Collector's Edition (at least the 360 version) was converted to a pre-owned, regular Two Worlds version for $4.99.

Workin on it

The Uncharted 3 Collector's Edition was converted to use, so it should be $18.99 in stores. Most stores probably gutted the contents though, and just put the game case out for sale.

What does converted to preowned mean? They couldn't sell the game new so they opened the wrapper and put it up as used? If so that's really dumb since they sell used games for like $5 cheaper



Most of the time, they don't open the wrapper, they just change the sticker and the status in the system. However, Gamestop often opens New games and sells them "New" (note, I'm agnostic about this and not trying to start a discussion about gutting games), so it's all YMMV.

I picked up yesterday COD Modern Warfare 3 Hardened edition- brand new, but converted to used and Deux Ex Human Revolution (Augmented) also new, but converted to used. Both were converted sometimes last week some trime I think.

I have never heard of this.

I take this to mean that the games are still in new packaging but the price drops to used so they can get rid of them. Does this also affect the price if you have the loyalty card thing and what about returning it within 7 days?

The loyalty card (power zone card) does give you 10 % extra off since these are sold as used items. Also you can return the games within 7 days if you want for full refund.

Found an Uncharted at Colma, CA in the San Francisco Bay Area. Guy said he would have to open the game before selling it to me. Shit, it was the last one, why not not sell as is? Rhetorical question. South San Francisco, Tanforan Mall, Serramonte Mall and Westlake Shopping Mall in Daly City were out. Gamestop at Bayhill Shopping Center was gone.

Dude, you rock! I picked one up and the employee was stunned when he scanned the box (which was in mint condition and still sealed). Even he did not know. They had one more in stock but his coworker called dibs on it. Thanks for the heads up. :)
