100% positive its the new one BUT apparently it was a one day sale (yesterday) :cry:. i was about to get it yesterday after part 1 of my massive trade dump but thought i'd sleep on it, even called at night to make sure they'd be on sale thru the weekend so i could pick up today. went back today and found out it was a 1 day sale (like the dre beats headphones are on sale today instead)..so yeah, im bummed. gonna go back tomorrow to trade more games, just gonna save 100 in gs credit in case they ever go on sale again.

What?!?! I had to pay $150. Are you sure it's the newer pulse elite model. The old one's msrp is $99.99

That means I just bring the controller to there without a case and then they will accept and test it? If so, after I trade in my old controller, I use credit to buy a move controller.


You do not need a case for the controller to trade in to GStop.

how come they don't have the 30% extra trade in bonus toward the Last of Us?? that will come out earlier than GTA 5!!


I've heard the opposite. GTA 5 before fiscal year ends in March.

cuz the actual amount doesn't show until you apply your PUR account to the trade in at the end..



Ok so if I go there and trade in Madden I should get $35 even though they told me $17 on the phone?

Yeah, just remember that you won't see the $35 until after they scan your powerup card.

Thank you J7. I hope my controller can be traded in $22 too. If the trade-in value is lower than I expected after they test , can I reject it?

You're welcome. Base value should still be $22. It would be $24.20 if you have a PUR Pro account. Just ask them you want to know the value before you trade it in, the value usually shows up on the credit card scanner before you finish the trade. If it's not the value you want you can tell them you don't want to trade it.

Thank you for your detail information. I am only a normal member instead of Pro. This is my first to trade controllers. I am so sorry that I ask you too many questions.

So torn on trading in some of my games. The Sly Collection is fetching a nice price, but if it's OOP, I want to keep it, especially since I collect all of the HD collections and I haven't even played the second and third games.

That and Assassin's Creed III. I've already beaten the game, but there's still some trophies I want to clean up and the multiplayer is surprisingly fun. I don't know what to do. I'm definitely trading in AC III: Liberation though. The game's not grabbing me and I'll just wait for a cheap retail copy later on. I have PS+ so I have plenty of games on the Vita to entertain me meanwhile.

Got it on bf at bb. I am kinda hooked on it but wanna trade it. I usually hate trading games before I'm done with them, unless the game bores me.

that's true but it's just odd they dont have the exact date yet. I'm thinking to trade in my dualshock 3 and get 30% bonus toward GTA 5 pre order.

my gut says no, but do these values stack with anything else? (like the 50% bonus towards a used game..? or are they all just promos..)

doesnt stack. computer automatically chooses best promo for your games tiv. only way to stack is to get a manual override like velo's accomplice. and that is almost impossible.

They already gave out Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus for plus members if I remember correctly so I can see this happening with the other 2.

It varies by state.
