Now I notice that every game I got pretty much has small scratches all over it. My xbox must do this naturally, is this what they are docking me for because I don't think I will be able to get rid of those. Can I get the disc smoothed myself for less than 2 bucks?

I just got that email about the 50% powerup rewards sale tonight. Really makes me think this sale was only for this weekend but was activated early. The original list had Oct 12 embedded in the URL.

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?

Online passes work for all accounts on the console where the op was originally redeemed, so they do operate like dlc and games.

What day of the week do they change tiv?migt get rid of the ps3 it collects dust

Gamestop changes whenever they want, no specific time, although they will generally lower the TIV after a few days of a promotion, so the best time to get in on a promo is the first few days. Consoles base TIVs have dropped, for example, since that promo started.

I'd say yes, but there's always this:

Trades must be in full working condition to receive full value. Defective items may be eligible for trade at a lesser value. Cannot be combined with any other offer. Trade-ins subject to manager approval. Offer valid only toward items normally accepted in trade. See store associate for details. No dealers. Offer valid in the United States, Puerto Rico and Guam only. Void where prohibited. GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancel, terminate, modify or suspend the offer for any reason without notice. Offer expires 10/14/12.

Are you sure about that for Mass Effect 3, though? I think that code is redeemed in the game when you are logged in.

I don't know if this has been mentioned yet but the @gamer CoD special at BB gets you :360:Black Ops for $20, which you can trade in to GS for $25.5 + 10% thru 10/14. Plus you'll get a map pack out of it.

When I redeemed the online pass for ME3, I was worried that it was gamertag-specific and that my brother would be unable to play the multiplayer to boost his Galactic Readiness, but he had no problems getting online.

When you download the online pass to your hard drive, look at the contents of your hard drive and locate the pass itself--instead of saying (for example) "CloudSquall78" under its name (like it would for a game save), it should say "Xbox 360" or something like that (like it would if you installed a game) to show that it's not specific to any gamertag but rather applicable to all since it's on the hard drive.

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.


Anyone know?

Anyone know?

When searching in my area for the :ps3: version, one store out of every 10 or so does not have the "Low Stock" indicator, but searching for the :360: version shows a lot more stores having plenty of copies. If any version is going to become harder-to-find, it would possibly be the PS3 version, but not being a fan of the series, I can't say for sure.

Hey guys, just to double check, but the deal on the 50% extra is *only* for the specific system listed next to the game, right?

I can't take in Goldeneye for PS3 and expect to walk out with $19.50, that's only for the Xbox 360 version right?

Also, do you still get the 10% extra from the power-up card on top of the 50% extra?

Yes the values are only good for the specified system listed.

Yes, you also get the 10% PUR bonus on the base value.

Awesome, thanks!

A lot of the games I'm trading in I got during the height of the K-Mart coupon frenzy, so Gamestop is going to pay me more for these games than what I paid for them at launch.

Feels good man.

So I only got $9 base on :360: Mass Effect 3 ($14.40 after promo)

I know the promo was working because I got $27.20 for L4D2.

I was also quoted at $40 for the Core 360 + wireless controller ($80 after bonus) so that pretty much ends me trading in my 250GB MW2 Elite to upgrade.

Is the 100% trade-in bonus for consoles still active or did GameStop put the kibosh on it early? It's no longer listed in their Trade In page.

I'm actually bought someone's 80GB YLOD PS3 console so I could repair it & trade it in. I'll be a sad panda if I don't get the expected $180 trade-in credit :-(

I don't like the sounds of that. You think they would stick with the promo TIVs for the last 3 days of the promo. Maybe they just got too many $10 copies from BB. :roll: I'm going to trade-in Halo Reach today and will report back.

Damn... Looks like my copy is going to be traded in. Really don't want to trade it in, but it's not getting much play these days.

Vanilla Dead Island going for a ride too. That will pretty much eliminate all of my backlog and leave me with a few games in my actual collection. Just in time for the holiday sales! ;)

Has anybody tried to trade in the Skyrim download card that comes with the 250gb Xbox 360 bundle? I bought a new slim the other day, but don't want Skyrim. If they accept them, i'll trade in at gamestop.
