I have a phat 40GB PS3 and upgraded it to 320GB. I was thinking of taking the hard drive out and put the old 40GB and then sell it but does anyone know if all the stuff in the 320GB will be gone? I would then buy a slim PS3 and put the 320GB in it and hope for everything to be there.
Also, I have never sold a console on Gamestop but I'm guessing they need all the original cables and the controller no? Do they open the console on the spot to make sure everythings working? Thanks for any replies.

Console, power cord/block, AV cables (no HDMI) 1 Sony branded Dualshock 3 or Sixaxis controller w/ sync cable. They don't open it up, but they do check to see if the warranty seal is in tact. They also power it on, pop a game in and test a few things. Well...that's what they're supposed to do.

Lol. You are about the 5th person to say $27.50 for Halo Reach. It's actually $27.20.

AFAIK you can't put in the 320GB on a new PS3 and just use it. Each PS3 is coded or something and the hard drive can only be read from the same PS3. Basically, if you put in the 320GB in a new PS3, it will say it has to format the hard drive in order for the PS3 to use it.

My suggestion is to either
1) back up the 320GB to an external hard drive and then restore it later on to your new PS3. However, using this method will make you lose all the 'copy-protected' save files.

or the better
2) buy a new PS3 and transfer all the data. (I forgot what the exact term was but it is something like transfer). This will let you keep all the copy-protected data as well.

According to the poweruprewards list it says the tivs are guaranteed until the 14th. That means the base tiv right, not just that the 50% is guaranteed. So I'll definitely get $13-$14 for darksiders 1?

It's not hard to come by but it has held its value incredibly well for a game that came out just shy of 3 years ago. I'm trading mine in because I don't see it staying up this high for that much longer. Plus I haven't played it in well over a year.

Just got back from Gamestop. Traded in my 3DS black for the 3DS XL Blue.

Traded in some games as well, with the double hardware bonus I spent about $30 out of pocket.

The store was awesome enough to let me do the system transfer in store. I just tethered my smartphone's connection to each 3DS so I could do the transfer.

I LOVE the new 3DSXL!

The 50% yes. The base TIV no. Just ask the people who traded in ME3 the past couple of days.

I just traded in both my old Xbox 360's. One was the original white console, the other a black elite. I got $95 for each. The hard drive isn't necessary to trade, makes no difference on the amount you get for the system itself. But, I went ahead and traded my 20gig and 120gig, got $1.75 and $13.25. So, $205 total for my back up systems that have just been sitting in a closet for a year.

Left 4 Dead 2 is a game I'll most probably keep throughout the 360's life cycle since they added every map from Left 4 Dead 1 to it.

I see in the OP that for the double credit on systems that defective systems maybe be eligible at a lower value. So my question is what is anyone's experience with this? My 20GB 360's (falcon) disc drive doesnt read discs anymore, but plays games fine off the HDD. It was also sent in to be fixed from rrod and no longer has the stickers under the face plate. Would gamestop take this for credit?


I'm going to try to snipe a 250GB 360slim this fall for $200. Anything above that seems ridiculous. Going to take advantage of this deal for my regular 3DS too since amazon is only offering $70 max for them now.

Got some quotes over the phone:

PS3

Bleach: Soul Resurccion (probably spelled wrong) - $12

360

Transformers: Fall of Cybertron - $22

Bleach is an awesome candidate for the Trade 2 for $40 promotion, Fall of Cybertron is not because you're actually losing $2 using that promotion for it.

does the 30% extra stack with the 50% bonus on those certain games?

ive got some old crappy sports games i could trade in with the 3 games i mentioned earlier if it gets me an extra 30%. I'm assuming the answer is no though.
