No offense but you opened yourself up for dissapointment when you waited till the last minute.


Family is more important. And I did not wait till the last minute as their hours on the site are wrong. Sorry I dont sit on CAG 24/7 and check out deals all day long. Much rather be with my wife and daughter, where life matters most.

Looks like the 10/20/30% thing's going to keep going 'til 2/17, along with getting $50 extra if you trade in a Wii U/PS3/360. Don't eat me if this is old news, by the way.

I was hoping they'd do the trade 3, get an extra $10 promo again before I had to pay off my FE 3DS bundle, darn it.

You bought the white one? How does it look? Is it a crystal white or just bland white?

It's just about the same white as the white DS3 but it's nice and glossy. I am incredibly fond of it, and hadn't even thought that it would come with the white controller.

Also, redeeming the code for the year of ps plus gave me the 3 additional months as well, for those interested.

I totally understand, but the double system trade in has been going on all month. Knowing GS you're just going to get a generic sorry reply.

Seriously though sorry you got screwed, but maybe some of the base values will go back up a bit since the promo is over.

I traded in my Phat Xbox 360 last week due to the double promo. Just a warning, the clerk tried to claim my Xbox was red ringing and wanted to charge me the refurb fee. I pointed out that he had not plugged in the display cables. Nice and shady! This was at my favorite Gamestop store where I have never had issues in the past, but this was a different clerk than I usually deal with.

You've got to be able to better than $16 for a used Wii, right? Even doubled to $32 Craigslist has to be the better option.

Just an FYI about the 12+3 promo that is currently active where you get 3 months free of PS+ when buying a full year. It seems as if any activation of a year of PS+ triggers the promotion automatically.

I had G-stop credit to burn after Christmas and had purchased a 1 year membership card a while back in order to re-up my PS+ account. Being as my current 30 day subscription was set to expire in a few days I thought I'd activate it today. Lo and behold, I was given the bonus 3 months after inputting the scratch off code from the 12 month card I purchased over a month ago.

The message indicating that I would by using the promotion triggered as soon as I finished putting it in. About $3.33 per month for PS+? What a great deal! Way to go Sony!

The White PS3 Bundle gives a $75 trade in bonus on a PS3, 369, or WiiU. Probably going to do that tomorrow if the trade in for PS3 still is a the $70 range. I have some games to dump and about $10 in credit so I should make out well.

$60 wiis here are gone in hours....
I'd ask $70 for a GCube version....and advertise it as such...

heck if it's in good shape and plays GC games, I'd give ya $32 (vs GS credit) plus shipping...

I traded in my 120GB slim ps3 today and purchased the new classic white super slim ps3 bundle. With the $75 promo, I got $145 and in total I paid ~$180 out of pocket.

Transferring your save files is actually not too bad. You can just pop in a USB stick (FAT32) and copy the saves over. I think what you should worry more about are full games or psn games since you'll have to redl them. However, if you talk to the gamestop manager, they gave me an option to purchase the white ps3 first, take it home, hook old ps3 to it with ethernet, do a full data transfer, then do the trade-in and re-tender the white ps3 with the $145 credit. He said this is an exception so I recommend you calling and talking to the gamestop manager there.

It's pretty easy to back up the saves so I agree with him on using a USB flash drive if you have one. I used it on my 160gb when I upgraded to a super slim on BF. However some saves cannot be put on a flash drive so I had to use the PS+ cloud feature. Not sure how that would affect someone without it. Thought it was pretty dumb I had to use it, but oh well. Downloaded it 24 hours later.

I didn't like reading about it, but actually loved it when I was able to get my hands on the super slim. The thing I enjoy most is being able to change discs without the ps3 having power.

I don't notice it being too much noisier than my previous slims were, but I also play mostly digital content with my 500gb hard drive<3

If i want to cancel a pre-order that is fully paid off(with some on my debit card and some on Store credit), would i get the money all back on my debit card or partially back on both? I ask this because i returned some games today, that i paid with store credit and my debit card, and the associate gave me all the money back on my debit card.
