Just got back from my local GS, they had signs that they were about to put up stating that they would give a bonus $20 for trading in a system with one controller and all the cables.

They accept all systems except for GBA and GBA Micro, if I remember correctly.

Hmm, does that include GBA SP also? I've been thinking about trading up for a DS.

I doubt it would work on any last-gen console/handheld especially since a gamecube probably trades in for something like $20 or $25.

That would be awesome if it applied to Gamecube, if they give $20 for it before the bonus, especially if you keep the 1st party controller and trade it in with a 3rd party controller

I doubt this will work with a Gamecube since they sell them for $30.

It is $15, just got rid of one a couple days ago. The $30 bonuses that were on flyers awhile back did not apply to Gamecube, GBA, or GBA Micro, though, so I wouldn't get your hopes up.

It is $20, I asked. So that means $40 for the xbox.

$35 for the normal PS2, $40 for the Slim one.

Before.

I'm going to trade in my two fat PS2's. Does the controller have to be 1st party or can it be 3rd party?

GameCube sells for $29.99 used, so it won't be eligible.

First party... (at least at my store) or a nice wireless third party controller could work too.

Is the 35 for the normal ps2 the normal trade in value or with the bonus included?

Hmmm I might trade in my fattyPS2 on this.

The last time they had this deal it was a regional thing and my GS wouldn't do it. I tried to trade in my fat PS2. Then I sold it on Ebay for $90 without any games.

The moral of the story is...you'll make more on Ebay even if GS gives a bonus.

Is this true? I ordered a used GameCube from them once and got a really bad third party controller included inside. I don't know if that's what came with the trade-in console or just some random one out of a warehouse, but they did apparently take in the crap third party brand in the first place.

It depends on the store. The one I worked at we would take any controller as long as it was in good shape but I know some other store that just took 1st party ones.

I don't know, but for what it's worth, I sold my NA on e-bay a few weeks ago for almost $25. They seem to fetch a surprising return.


So will GS take N64's with this deal?

OMG, no. They will only take in systems they have games for. Think about it, it would be bad business for them to take a dreamcast or an N64. Heck, I have a couple of NES consoles I wouldn't mind getting $20 a piece for :).

They seem to be selling for like 30-40 plus shipping. Not too shabby. I'll need to drop mine on Ebay once I get rid of the PS2.

Wow...
Even if I don't trade in the ps2, I'll just take the adaptor off. I really don't need it as i have two slim ps2s. Thanks for the heads up :)
