I lost my 360 controller battery cover too. I picked one up on Ebay (2.65 with free shipping):

It hasn't come yet, but I'm hoping it is good enough to allow me to trade the controller in.

Gamestop's next fiscal quarter end would be near the end of October (like most retailers, their FY ends at the end of January).



Interesting - that was the reason I heard for the B2G1 at the end of June, but it looks like the timing is not related to the end of quarters. I wouldn't be surprised if it was in the next few weeks anyway - it seems they sometimes do it right after a big trade-in bonus.

Workin on it

I kinda doubt they would do a B2G1 so close to the B2G1 you know they're going to do over Black Friday...but sometimes they inexplicably come in spurts so maybe we will see one.

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'?


I got mine with free shipping so 3 bucks total.

I didn't have the AA battery cover but I had a play n charge kit with it (rechargeable battery with the cord to recharge it) and they said if I traded it in this way, they would have to trade it in as Wired.

I have a 2nd gen Ipod Touch 16gb with what seems to be a bad headphone jack. Will they still take it and just charge me a re-furb fee? Should I trade it in or is that an easy fix?

I would hang onto them. Should be able to get $17-22 total TIV on them as we get closer to GTA V.

This. As hit sequel titles get closer to their release dates the previous ones seem to sky rocket.

So would you guys recommend holding onto GTAIV Complete Edition? With Gamestop's TIV, I can get around $17 for it.

If it's 360 then trade them in as disk only copies of 4 and Episodes to double your TIV. If it's PS3 trade it in as you can always get it back for $10-$20 on sale.

Why do you guys think it would trade in for that high? I can't recall any game that skyrocketed in value after a sequel was released. For example, Darksiders 2 just released and the first only trades in for $6 base.

It is the PS3 version, so I think I'll trade it in. Thanks!

It happened with Mass Effect. It really isn't worth that much but GS likes to take advantage of people who would actually buy a used copy of ME for $30 even though you can get it new on Amazon for $20. They're just trying to do the same thing with Prototype.

They did that with Assassin's Creed Brotherhood and Revelations. Best Buy and Target had bot of them for 19.99 new and Gamestop was selling them 30-40 used. I even asked about it and the guy there said they will raise prices on games in a series when a new one is announced and close to coming out because its in demand.

Looks like I might go use my coupon and move over the BB credit I just got from my Madden 13 PM before the 50% ends :D (which will likely be moved back over to BB of course!)

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

Ahhhhh, I see now. That makes some amount of sense at least. I guess I'm just SOL to find a cover for that price now. Thanks for the heads up, though.

Just traded in my backup Xbox 360 Arcade(white) for about $71 with the 30% hardware bonus(guy behind the counter didn't know about it and I showed him the back of the flyer that was right next to him). Got another $5.50 each for the crappy headset and chatpad as well. $82 in gamestop credit for a backup console I bought for $85 about a year and a half ago. Awesome.
