It's the same reason LFD 1/2 are so high: GS stopped buying the game from the publisher, demand for it has increased (sequel coming out,) company inventory is low, GS needs copies, and customers that don't know better are ok paying $36-$40 for a used copy from GS.


well thats still kind of amazing the price of the game in store is so high and people are buying....the game can be had for 15 dollars on amazon(ive bought and sold them twice to game stop lol)

not to mention all the copies sold with new 360s kind of shocking in a way but not really people are suckers...

How much is a old white phat xbox with the silver dvdrom tray + 20gb hd, 1 wireless controller and 5 to 6 wired controllers.

Last time (maybe couple of days ago) it was $55 and with the double promo going on it came to $110 with everything needed for the trade (power cord, A/V cables, controller and a working console). Hard drive was not required for trade in but if you are getting rid of it then you can throw it in their.

Couple posts below yours is the new trade in value listed for wireless controllers ($22.00). Wired was around $12.00 few days back.

If you do the power trade towards a preorder of a select game, you will get 30% bonus credit on your trade-in. Make sure to take a print out of the trade in promo (listed on GS website stating so) since some people have reported problems getting the promo if you go that route.

Borderlands 2 Base is $30, is that right?

I believe so. They have a $30 promo on that game for the next couple days.

BB with unlocked will give you $43.20 I believe

So I just opened my Uncharted 3 GOTY from the Superslim bundle and found out the DLC is on disk. Unlike U2 that had a voucher and just about everything else Sony seems to do it with. Hoping this means the TIV will be higher come trade time.

Base values for yesterday (10/10):

:360: Left 4 Dead 2 - $17
:ds: Pokemon Platinum - $13

Got $48 total with the 50% bonus (on qualifying games) + 10% PUR. I paid off my Wii U preorder in full just so I don't have to deal with that on release day. I still need to pay off my NSMB U preorder (didn't bring my other card so I was just a few $ short to do that) otherwise that was sort of pointless.

Got $164.30 today from the gamestop in westford,ma.

I traded in a old phat white 360 my brother purchased off ebay for $25 , him and his friend had repaired it and brought back to full gaming life.
Got $95 for it with a wireless controler and 20gb hd.

Trade in 4 wireled controllers at $13.20 a piece and a extra wireless at $22.00. My brother got these for free at the recycling center while doing a delivery, why would someone throw away pefectly working and comesticly fine controllers beats me.

COD 4:Mod War - 4.40
Halo 3 - 3.30

I decided to also upgrade my membership to a pur member for $14.99, it also gave me 10% extra on everything except the console. Now my brother will hopefully get the new slim 500gb ps3 bundle that includes assasian creed 3 so I can play it on my ps3 ;)

I thought the fat 360 was worth 110, 55 base, without the HD?

Nice, I'll definitely trade in my original copy of Mass Effect 3 and then keep the new one I picked up at Best Buy. That way I can get another online pass for my son. Since this is a stupid EA game, he can't play online with his account right now, but I think that changes when he hits 13, which is in just a few months. It sounds like the multiplayer is still pretty active (and ever-changing) so I'd like to keep one copy at least. The online passes are gamertag-specific, right? I mean, you can't just redeem one for a console like you can with DLC/XBL Arcade games?

Ok I took in Skyrim, Saints Row The Third, Reach, and Mortal Kombat.

Now when I added that up, it should have been about 95 bucks. The guy looked at 3 of my disc and said he has to charge me a bit because they need to resurface them. (I was surprised but I should have wiped them down, didn't notice anything wrong with them but whatever). At the end he told me I would be getting 66 bucks. I asked him if that included the power up special that is going on, he said yes.

I asked how much he docked me for the resurfacing, he told me 8 bucks total. I could have lived with 85+ dollars but 66? I told him I will think about it some more. What happened?

You probably shouldn't have traded in three games because that might have triggered the tiered promo instead--10% for each game instead of 50%. Just split them between two transactions and you should be good.

Oh man, that makes sense! That would be another 6 bucks which would put me at 66. I was hoping to come out of there with 88. I will go back and try that.

Does anyone know if XCOM: Enemy Unknown was a limited print? Looking like all the GS stores around me only have a very short supply. Just wondering if I should trade in a couple of games I'm unsure about keeping (SR3 and MK) since I've finished both and don't want to get to a position where XCOM becomes super difficult to find for anything other than PC.

If it's not limited or anything that would be better, because with Dishonored probably getting here from BB tomorrow, ACIII at the end of the month, DoA 5 still needing more online time and costume unlocks, GoT begging to be played more, and Tokyo Jungle still on lower level animals my backlog is currently crazy.

Did the employee really say they need to resurface the games? I hate how some Gamestop employees try to charge the refurb fee when Gamestop doesn't resurface discs or offer a discount for games with damaged discs and missing artwork/manuals. If you haven't traded try to go to a different location. If they say the same thing bring up that Gamestop doesn't refurbish games or offer a discount on damaged games and maybe (probably not but worth a shot) that argument will work for you. And as others mentioned, break up the trade so you get more credit.
