Aw that sucks. At least there's a Play N Trade coming to RI. That's what it says on their site. Doesn't say a city though. I hear they have classic games.


Any word on this since?

I myself haven't heard much, but I did see a small billboard advertising their website over in Smitfield, near the Smithfield Crossing.

Aw, man. I'm not near Smithfield. I can still check it out occasionally, though.

North Kingstown here and summer job @ walmart in electronics. Have Halo 3 in stock in the back and Halo 3 xbox 360's too. They both look amazing, just sucks staring at them knowing I can't buy it yet :x Ugh.

Saw that the Xbox 360 Elite is going to be discontinued too from what I read and saw. Also, from a paper I saw, there's going to be a replacement xbox 360 Core in November. I have pics of it somewhere on my mac.

Why discontinue? Is it not selling as they'd hoped?

Nah, I heard from one of my sources that since the majority of 360s that get the RROD are from Cores that the new ones are going to be discontinued so that the new ones get the new chips/heatsinks. That's what I was told. It's pretty good if it is true. They are amazing too, have my Halo 3 LE Xbox 360 and I believe they have the new chips/heatsinks in them and my new 360 runs soooo fast and smooth, very quiet. Now all I need to do is pick up my copy of Halo 3 @ the Coventry Gamestop (the one in Centre of New England). Still not sure which one I'm gonna pick up though.

Advice for life there hootie ;)
I might've gone to the launch if my 360 weren't moonlighting as a paperweight at MS repair center at the moment.

Anyone see the 40GB PS3 somewhere besides GameStop? The Sony Style store is expecting any until black Friday.

I need a second one for an early Christmas gift.

Did a Play N Trade open up on Mineral Spring Ave in Providence? I was driving back with some Papa Gino's late last night and I swear I saw a sign. I think it was by the Rita's, but I could be wrong.

It's not on the official site yet: http://playntrade.co...ty/location.asp

Nice, I drive by there every day, yet I haven't had the chance to go in yet.

I wonder if they have good trade-in prices...

I don't know, but I hear their store is really, really nice. They have great customer service and they let you try your games before you buy them. The have kiosks for all systems, even the old ones. They accept trade-ins for all the old games, I'm pretty sure even as far back as NES (Yes!). I'm going there this weekend so if anyone's been there, please tell me how it is! I can't wait to go.

Warwick sucks, just a little.

For anyone interested, Salvation Army on the East Side of Providence had a console only NES for $9.50 the other day.

My eyes lit up when you said they had an NES, then I realized it was console only. I've been looking for one of those but with hookups.

Seriously? I believe I have one with hookups, no box though and some old games (but last time I checked they were like "Elmo's ABCs and Elmo's 123s". No joke).

Someone on CL has been trying to sell theirs with about 20 games for $40 for MONTHS now.

I'd do that but unfortunately I'm just a kid. I don't even know how Craigslist really works anyway. Do you actually meet up with the seller?

Yeah, craiglist is just as bad as ebay if your not careful, there are still scams and even worst are beatings that happen. You should be set if you just meet up with the seller in daylight with a friend or someone you know in daylight. I usually do it at malls in the afternoon

You only really have to be wary of CL if you live in a bad area or if you're going for something high in price/value. For someone living in East Providence and for an NES and games with an asking price of $40, not much to worry about.
