That is most likely for the PS3 slim, though. I had a 160GB fat system. I mean, even when I traded mine yesterday, the base value was not $95 for the fat system - no way the values went up for this promo.

So I just called in and got some system values

4GB Slim 360 - $75
250GB Slim HDD - $40
Core 360 w/ Wireless - $55

Though those could change by tomorrow for the double value


If it doesn't change then I'll be pissed that I could have gotten $15 more for trading my old 360 in had I waited a couple of days.

$15? I'd be happy if I only got screwed out of $15.

Damn, that means my 160GB fat system is probably the same - it seemed to be $90 base from the receipt I got yesterday anyway. I got $135 for it so I got screwed out of $45 by taking advantage of their last promo. I even rushed to a far away store before they closed Sunday since my local one didn't have the new super-slim bundles in that I wanted to replace it with.

Confirmed 10/1: PS3 160GB (fat) system: $90 base

I was able to go back to the store and have them adjust my trade to get the difference between today's promo and yesterday's credited back. That came up to a whopping $45! I used that to preorder NBA 2K13 both as a treat for my son (who lost his locked game saves on the old PS3) and as a bonus for the clerk that helped me with the adjustment.

What he did (at the manager's suggestion) was to sell me back my PS3 at a discounted price of $135 (which is what I got for it yesterday). He rang it up with an override discount of $84.99 (which means they are selling the used 160GB fat system for $219.99 which is a pretty small profit off the current promo trade-in value of $180). Then, on the same receipt, he traded it in again for the current $180 promo value. He tried to get me the extra $10 for the super-slim purchase (a promo that stacked with the $125 value yesterday) by ringing that up, too, but it did not stack this time.

So it all worked out in the end even though I had to make an extra 30 mile trip back to this store and I lost my son's locked saves (had I known the promo would work this way I would have bought the super-slim yesterday, did a proper transfer with Ethernet cable thus preserving his saves, then traded my old system in today). But thinking about it, I should get some extra bonus PUR points out of this. According to my receipts, it looks like have traded 2 PS3's in, and bought a used system in addition to the new one. I'll have to see how that plays out when the points show up.

I am very much relieved now. It would have bugged me to no end had I not been able to take care of that. That would have hurt down to my cheapass soul ;).

Yeah, the reason for selling it back to me and then trading it right back in again was to keep their inventory correct while issuing me the difference.

Yeah, I don't know if this is a good thing or not, but this manager has been an EB/GS manager for as long as I've been going to Gamestop - that would be the entire "modern era" of my video gaming life (since about 2004 or so when I got back into it after my early Atari/Colecovision days). So he ought to know a thing or two about how to use the system ;). I don't know if anyone remembers the Gran Turismo 4 trade-in promo they had way back when. I forget the exact details but basically you could trade in 2 (I think) crappy PS2 games for a brand new (at the time) GT4. This guy was the manager of an EB Games store and processed that trade both for me and my wife. His store is not local to me and I don't go there all that often but he still remembers me by name all these years later. It is quite remarkable, actually. I had only gone over there because my local store didn't have the super-slims in stock yet. It is probably a good thing because while the guys at my local store are nice enough, they pretty mcuh throw their hands up when it comes to dealing with promo issues and the like. I'm sure they would have told me I was out of luck.

Yes, and I more than made up for that with my son by preordering NBA 2K13 for him ;).

JP - I added the $90 value for the 160GB fat and $95 value for 160GB slim (from the other thread) into the PS3 hardware section with today's date. There are a lot more hardware quotes in that other thread. I'd shut it down and direct everyone here but people tend to get a little pissed when stuff like that happens. The deal is good enough to have its own thread for a few days at least, anyway - then maybe I'll move it over here. Maybe I'll cull the rest of the values out of that thread later tonight and post them here.

Base hardware values pulled from the other thread:

Wii: $30

Xbox 360 20GB: $55 (HD not needed for trade)

Xbox 360 Slim 250GB: $90
Xbox 360 Slim 4GB: $75
Xbox 360 250GB HD (for slim): $40 (assuming this doesn't double - and also this doesn't reconcile with the 2 quotes above)

PS3 40GB: $90
PS3 60GB: $90
PS3 160GB: $90 (looks like any fat PS3 is $90, no matter the model)
PS3 Slim 120GB: $90
PS3 Slim 160GB: $95
PS3 Slim 320GB: $100

3DS: $50

If any PS3 (fat) is $90 tomorrow then I am doing this but if not then it won't be worth trading up. My old MW2 Elite 360 would get like $130 with the HD so that is not worth it for an upgrade.

glad to be rid of my old XBOX 360 20GB with wireless controller for $55 base TIV. They gave me $3.75 for the 20GB HD. $113.75 isn't too shabby for an old XBOX I had sitting around collecting dust.

Yeah I just called and my 60 gb (fat) ps3 is getting $90 base. It is one of the originals (full ps2 compatibility) with 4 usb. I has been good to me but runs so dam hot and is a lead block. I think I am going to upgrade. I already have $44 in trade there plus I was planning to trade 2 games for $40. To get a new superslim for almost nothing out of pocket sounds pretty good.

I remember that promo... I believe it was 4 PS2 games for Gran Turismo 4 originally, then was reduced to 3 PS2 games for GT4. I believe GT 4 was selling for $40 at the time, so you were getting $10 to $13.33 per game. I would get a gift receipt and return the GT4 to another store for GameStop credit.

I'd consider trading in my 360 since I hardly use it anymore but what do you guys plan to do with your games that you have for a console you no longer have?

Trade them in at the same time? I feel as though that's exactly what gamestop wants so you get very little back for your games and then they can make a nice profit off your loss.

I'm thinking if I decide to trade in my console for this promo, I would just sell my games directly to gamers via Glyde or equivlent service so I can spread the saving around and get a bit more money off my games too.

Anyone have any bright ideas about the subject?
