What was the most number of copies you traded with the same title? Did you trade multiple same copies in one transaction?

2 weeks in a row it dropped to .25 cents on Wednesday but by Thursday or Friday it was back at $12 base so just wait and see if this is a true nuke or not.

Traded in two games yesterday for $58. Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 (PS3) and Metal gear Rising: Revengeance (360), got $34 and $24 for each respectively.

Shame MGR's value dropped so fast. Didn't even get a chance to play it, but had to get something out of it now, being such a short game, its value will drop fast. I'll just rent it from gamefly to play/finish it in a weekend.

Now playing: Plants vs Zombies: Garden Warfare (XB1), Dark Souls (PC), Starcraft 2 (PC), Infamous: Second Son (PS4), Dead Rising 3 (XB1), Rouge Legacy (PSV), Diablo 3: Ultimate Evil Edition (PS4).

Got 74 total for Black Ops 2 and Bioshock Infinite. Not bad considering the preorder bonus for Bioshock, only paid like 3 bucks to beat it. Don't remember if there was a bonus for Black Ops 2.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

There was for BLOPS2. Remember all of the hubub re: whether it was on the official list or not? It was noted in the RZ page but apparently not on the general BB page which caused all kinds of confusion and thread clutter.

MidnightMetal posted the ad for next week (4/7-4/13), and it doesn't mention the 100% bonus at all like it has the past few weeks, so it's safe to say that today (Saturday) is the last day it's active.

Only for the newer releases not the mid to low end titles. Hopefully the TIVs change to reflect this promo.

Take this with a bunch of salt, but I read on another forum from a supposed BBY employee that in June, they're downsizing the gaming department again.

Just in time for The Last of Us, the last game I have preordered at BBY and ever will preorder there?

...That can't be a coincidence. :wall:

i still prefer bb trade in program, i just hope it does not mean they are removing the trade in program for video games down the line, because that is where this is heading with all the downsizing in their gaming department.
