Quick question. Should I keep my Power Up Pro or just go to Best Buy and get their Gamers Club Unlocked? I feel like I don't spend any money at GameStop anymore. I'm just not sure.


If you only get one, you should go with the GCU. Assuming you can go to a BB store just as easily as GS, of course. The GCU membership gives everything PUR does and more (opportunity for price matching, $20 pre-order bonuses, game coupons)

If you just ask yourself if you're going to do $150 worth of business at either store (pre-owned purchases/trade-ins), then that will determine if you should get only one/both. Because at that point, the membership fee pays for itself.

Is that for the enhanced edition or vanilla?


There is NO vanilla version of Witcher 2 on 360.

Why does OP have 2 different copies of Witcher 2 listed for Xbox then?


Because it's referring to the Dark or Enhanced Edition.

No "vanilla" version exists for :360: (as MSU just pointed out).

There's no extra content on the disk for the Dark Edition, it's just the usual physical extras, so the TIV of it should be the same.

But if you're trading a Dark Edition of Witcher 2 into GS ...

Plan on trading in some controllers next week while best buy has the DS3 on sale. Do they check them very thoroughly/at all? The one I want to trade in looks fine but the left button on the d pad doesn't work.


They thoroughly check all buttons.

Jay Rooster are you even old enough to trade stuff in?

Wtf they told me on the phone I would only get like $13 with the promo added on GTA IV

True statement if they were referring to the 30% pre-order promo with no PUR bonus added.

Granted. However, your questions are often so sophomoric that they go beyond the scope of a "reasonable" question. Half of the questions that you have asked are answerable through research within the thread. The other half require simple logic.

So the GS employee straight up lied to me today I now realize. I wanted to use the Power Trade (30%) for the Wii Hardware and accessories I had. She insisted that no pre-order would allow me to get this to apply to hardware and accessories. She said I could get the 30% on the hardware with that bonus. I am read the Power trade conditions right now and it states.

Extra 30% when you trade any items toward a new copy of these games*
(includes games, hardware, accessories, and iPod. iPhone and iPad devices)

Well Fuck her. I hate it when I know more than the dam employee of the company and they just fucking lie instead of actually looking it up. She looked me straight in the eye and said no pre-order EVER gives a bonus to accessories.

Now the total it cost me was $6.45 so it is not a huge deal from a monetary standpoint but from a dam doing your job right standpoint it pisses me off.

If you have anything pre-ordered with that GS, make sure you cancel your preorders with her.

You know the funny thing is that she would have gotten a pre-order with me if she would have just tried to do the dang Power Reward. Instead, I did not pre-order anything.

It was the one by the Mall (not inside)...next to the TJ Max. Normally no issues with that store but the shorter girl with the brown hair and glasses (Kami from the receipt) kept insisting the Power Reward did not apply to accessories. The other thing was there were 2 other employees there that said nothing.
