What is considered powering on? I have 2 360s, both turn on with a green light, but they freeze on start up. None of the stores (5 of them) in my area will take the systems.


If they can't sell it they won't take it.

Xbox 360 250GB Slim = $90 base (phone quote)

I just bought mine for this price ($180) but was thinking about trading it in because the disc drive is very loud. That still leaves $70 more though that I'd have to pay to get a new one.

Boot to the system's main menu or to an error screen usually. If the system is powering on that should be fine, but apparently stores are having problems following the new guidelines from corporate. A dual-sided, laminated sheet was sent out to each store about systems & disks.

Has anyone traded in a Vita wi-fi? I called 3 different stores and was given 3 different values which were $90 before promotion, $70 before promotion, and $45 before promotion. Not sure which to believe so just seeing if anyone has done it. Was interested in trading my black one in for a white one but if its really low then it's not worth it.


Just confirmed the Vita WiFi base trade in is $60

I got quoted 160 for my old 80 gig, I wasn't really even considering getting rid of it but I literally haven't played a game on it in months so it seems like a good time to let it go.

I'm pretty sure iDevices are a separate thing altogether and also have their own promotions associated with their trade-ins, except in the case of the power trade, where you should be able to get 30% extra.

Call another store. You are going to probably to deal with a lot of disgruntled employees today though because of all the people spending their gift cards/returning gifts.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

I have a 120GB older, but functional, xbox 360 with a Microsoft controller. Just got an Xbox live gold card for Christmas but the Xbox has no real way to connect to a hard line and has no wifi built in. Wifi adapters still cost like $70, so maybe, MAYBE this deal wouldn't be so bad if I got a good value for my old system. Either that or upgrading my 3DS to a 3DS XL. Anyone have any luck with those?

I think. Well trade in my Vita then tomorrow. $120 after bonus is probably as High as I'm going to get, I haven't touched it in so long. Would rather use the money to get games that I will play. Just can't really get into gaming on mobile devices

Hey guys, I was hoping someone would help me with a problem I have.

I am trying to get rid of my 120 Gb Slim PS3, but the hardrive inside is a 500gb. I tried to trade it in to two different Gamestops and both said they wouldn't take it cause it doesn't have the original hardrive. I just wanted to know if anyone has had this problem and a solution.

I imagine the only way would be to put in a different hardrive since the original slim models never had a 500gb model.
