Do you guys think i can trade in my broken ps3 (red light) for the $40 and get the extra $75 torwards the assassins creed bundle? Would that get me 115 credit?

I was planning on doing the sony return thing and paying Sony $99 for the refurbished slim but i still need to get a control. And Im planning on getting Assassins creed III too.


You have to have a controller, charging cable, and the audio/video hookups to trade in a system even if it's going to be refurbed. If not you have to buy a controller.

Is your console the 250gb with infamous and uncharted? If so they are still available on the website so I would hope if you went to the store and spoke with the manager (not one of the employees pushing pre-orders) he or she would be able to help you out and try to get a replacement shipped to their store. This is of course speculation as I've never actually needed to exchange a console at Gamestop and also understand not everybody has a local Gamestop that looks out for their customers.


Yeah if it's on the website the manager/asst. manager can do a product request to get you a replacement, just may take up to a week or so. This goes on all the time when an employee messes up and preorders someone the wrong version of a CE, etc.

Just to confirm, the urban camo DS3 will trade for the same as the standard black DS3 right? I got the killzone bundle from Best Buy but mainly did it to sell the controller, consolidate my KZ2 and KZ3 copies and get KZHD.


Yes all DS 3 controllers are the same to GS when trading in (no seperate sku by color on used controllers.)

DUMPED all for 360 base TIV:
Dead Island GOTY $10
Halo Reach $9
Hunted: The Demon's Forge $3.50
BlazBlue: Continuum Shift $2
Need for Speed Hot Pursuit $6 (I noticed this is a dollar more then OP, but I did have the limited edition from Gamefly. Good game but I treated it as a rental for 40 cents more)

3DS:
Pilotwings Resort $2

Picked UP:
Persona 4 Arena $29.99 new aka gutted, but no marks on disc so I don't even think Gamestop employees "rented" this. Please do not make another version/ultimate or I will have to kill you guys :( (see BlazBlue TIV)

Wait...what? I've never heard of regular games being denied before. Just being reduced to like .25 or something. Was your disc scratched up and they would have charged you more in refurb then it was worth maybe? That's odd.

Darn, Infamous 1+2 dropped in TIV

Phone Quotes All PS3 and Base:
Infamous Collection - $8
Max Payne 3 - $9
Dead Island GOTY - $10
LittleBigPlanet Karting - $17
Killzone Trilogy - $11

Trading in Killzone for $17.60 sounds good, since I got the Ultimate Combo Pack for $40 with it and I didn't even really want the game. I don't really want Infamous because I already have all 3 games, 1 and Festival of Blood from Welcome Back and a sale, and Infamous 2 from PS+.

Oh, yes, it does; I know that all too well. 8-)

I forgot to post these (11/28):

:3ds:
Nintendogs + Cats: French Bulldog - $5
Nintendogs + Cats: Toy Poodle - $5

Misc.
HDMI Cable - $4

I picked up the RE6 guide for $8.99 (that 10% off guides perk is a pretty underappreciated part of PUR, IMO ;)) after trading in the games and two of the cables, adding ~$16 to my credit total.

You should--just don't mention how you paid for the game when you go return it and hope that the employee doesn't notice.

Take this for what it's worth but I just tried trading the first Skylanders game with the portal for 3DS and the employee told me they don't take "any Skylanders." Not sure if that's just limited to the games because I have seen used figures on sale before.

Traded in two games today (11/28) and sadly there were drops:

3DS:
New Super Mario Bros. 2 - $14

Wii-U:
Nintendoland - $14

Not as much as expected but good enough I suppose.
