I have a 20GB PS3 I want to unload and was wondering if I needed to have all the original cables and manuals? The warranty seal has also been taken off so I don't know if that factors in and they'll take some money off?

they wont take it without the warranty seal intact (unless you get a lazy employee who doesnt really care and just tests it to play) and yes you need all original hook ups and 1 controller

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.

I imagine putting the original hard drive isn't an option? If that's the case, you're sol.

You need the cables, no manuals. Also if the warranty seal is broke, you're also sol.

Post if you do trade in that PS3 to confirm how it went! I won't be able to trade mine till Sat.

I didn't do it today. I went to ask and see if they will. 1 store said the promo won't apply to broken system and the other said they will, but was apparently 5 bucks less for the base. And they don't know how much the refurb deduction is (though first store said 40 bucks deduction). Yeah... I decided to go to my friends house to pick up my 360 to trade in and apparently it RROD and they tossed it even though it may still be under warranty. They said they will pay me back. Probably charge them more.

I'll probably try tomorrow morning so I'll let you know.

Yes, only games qualify for the 100% bonus


That and I believe in store they don't take systems with the exception of certain store taking in DS Lites.

Thanks for the quick responses! Guess I'm just out of luck, will probably give it to a family member.

Still a crappy deal. New Super Mario Bros. Wii U barely came out a month ago. Its a $60 game and still is. Hell its a Mario game. We know those don't go cheap. Tried trading my copy in and they tried giving me $19 and then the 50% plus power up rewards upped it to just $28. I think I'll be selling my copy online for $50

Help a cag out, I'm looking to buy a psp 3000 in excellent condition for a couple of bucks more than what GS is giving + shipping.

They take it with warranty seal out but it has to have the rubber thing that hides the screw.

This was tempting, as my 3ds xl will be coming in any minute now. I was hoping to unload the old 3ds after the transfer, but base dropped to 40, so it would be 80 bucks credit. I still might, anyone know where you can trade it in for more?

I just got $122 from Amazon but that was a promo with the gamespot show. Currently they are giving about $91.

I saw 91 but it says it requires the original box. I'm missing the box and the AR cards, so it looks like I would be in the 78 dollar credit range for Amazon. I still might just do it through amazon, better prices, more options on things to get with the credit. Thanks!

That was how my trade was going to be, plus I was gonig to get $4.50 or so for the dongle. I am still debating, because a nunchuck is required and so its pretty much a wash to trade in the wii and then have to go and rebuy a wiimote and nunchuck.

If you got a new regular 3DS, the Power Pak +, which doubles the battery life is $6.

Update. I was able to trade it in. At the store I traded it in to had the system for 75 bucks (other store I checked was 80) so I got 150 out of it. The store's refurb fee was 35 (compared to other store's 40 fee) so in the end I got 115 which is pretty nice. Both stores I checked had different prices and lost about 5 bucks but thats nothing considering 1 store said the promo doesn't apply with broken system. I rather lose 5 bucks than gain nothing.

Hope when you do it on Saturday that you don't have any issues. Just make sure it's complete. I brought a mini usb cable to be safe. Not sure if that is something you do need to bring.

I have a regular white Wii (one of the older versions, one of the first ones released) but it's missing the SD slot cover and when I called in they said I wouldn't get the full trade in but only part of it (plus the 50%).

But they wouldn't quote me a trade in price unless they saw the Wii at the store.

Anyone have any idea how much they might dock off for not having a SD slot cover? (besides that it's in excellent condition + everything else included).

i tried to trade in my ds without a stylus and they were going to knock about 8 bucks off but wouldnt give me the 50%.....after i asked how much the stylus was he said 8 so they may just deduct the price of what ever is missing.

while doing a little trading, I saw 2 Care Packages and 2 AC:III LE. Pretty crazy to see those I thought.

Store that had the 2 black ops said they were both returned by same person, who got more than just 2...I thought they limited CE orders? Never gonna pay $180 for that but at like $100 I would take the dive

thats just stupid, what they should have done was let you purchase the stylus on the same transaction, in all just taking the price of the stylus out of the whole value....man employees these days at retail stores (from a former GS manager)
