Did you actually sell those PS2 RPGs? I would've bought your entire bundle except for Kirby.

Yep. Could have gotten a few more bucks for some of them on Amazon, but since I was already trading in something, I didn't really have any interest in going through the process of boxing and shipping. eBay didn't tell me any of them were worth more than $10, so also not worth the time.

Here's what I traded in to pre-order Tekken Tag Tournament 2 (was given 50% trade-in bonus instead of 30% and I still have my PUR Pro card):
Halo Reach (360): $13 w/ $6.50 trade promo and $1.30 PUR bonus = $20.80
Warhawk (PS3): $0.25 w/ $0.12 trade promo and $0.02 PUR bonus = $0.39
Uncharted 2 (PS3): $4.00 w/ $2.00 trade promo and $0.40 PUR bonus = $6.40
360 Wireless Controller: $22.50 w/ $2.25 PUR bonus = $24.75

Total = $52.34

Aside from Warhawk's value (I can't see myself playing this anymore), I think this was a good trade off. I only had to pay 8 bucks to finish the pre-order.

I might need to trade a wireless controller.

Don't worry, they were in pretty crappy shape originally bought from GameStop, so I'm guessing you can get better quality from eBay for the same price everyone apparently would have been offering me!

You got jobbed on the controller. Accessories get an extra 30% credit when traded toward select games an TTT2 is one of those games.

Yeah that seems to be happening. That bonus is supposed to last till 12/16 so I might try and trade a few controllers in for Halo 4. I was denied yesterday also so I would print out the webpage with the included items and games.

It's up to you. I would. You should've gotten an extra $6.75, which would've cut down on that 8 bucks out of pocket.

Yeh, same thing happened to me. I traded in a game for the 50% and the accessories didn't get the extra 30%. I think GS' registers have a hard time processing 2 different promos at the same time. I would recommend separate transactions for multiple promos, even if it's the same one. I didn't get the right amount of credit when I did 3 sets of 7 for one of the 3/5/7 promos in one transaction. I would also think this information is OP-worthy.

I had them scan the coupon code out of their "store advertised specials" book to get my 30% bonus on the controllers. The manager thanked me for running through it with him, he didnt realize the accessories got the bonus with this promo. Also heard previously here, you might need separate transaction if you have games, maybe the two promos don't play nice. Cheers!

Edit: Panda911 beat me to it.

Would've gotten $6 or $6.30 (with GCU) at best buy. Just sold my copies of kz2/kz3 there to prepare for the collection as well.

It always pays to shop around and see what store/website will give you the best value.

I would rather just keep or give a game away before I would trade it in for .50 or $1.00. There is no way people would sell them to someone that cheap so why trade in at those prices? I went by GS today 9/8/12 to check values but BB's base values were the same or higher on all of them.

Base GS values:

PS3

Ratchet & Clank All for One $5.00
Naughty Bear $5.00
Green Latern $4.50
Hot Shots Golf Out of Bounds $4.50
Hasbro Family Game Night 4 $5.00

I got rid of some $1 games today at BBY ($2 after bonus) only because I got them cheap and I needed them off the shelf. I think I got rid of Pure, Watchmen, and Alone in the Dark for $1 or less. I needed to purge some game as some mental relief from the backlog. It most likely sounds stupid but I seem to play less with a large backlog because I can never decide what to start.

I haven't heard anything (even rumors), but supposedly Gamestop schedules them for the end of quarters to drive up sales and impress shareholders. If this is correct, then the next one should start around Sept. 27.

I'm assuming 3 bucks before shipping, because everything I'm seeing across like 4 different listings have the price at like $5-$10 inc. shipping. Way too expensive, so Fuck that.

Also, to clarify: Are you saying that the :360: Wireless Controller would have to be counted as a 'wired' controller if it doesn't have a rechargeable battery-pack, even if it has the AA battery cover thing? Or are you saying that if traded WITHOUT either the pack/cover, it trades in as 'wired'?
