New PS2 Slims Converted to Used (GS 39.99)

Hey everyone, sorry if this is old news. Gamestop has started to convert all their new PS2 Slims to Used (without breaking the seals on it). So that means that it's going for 39.99 now for brand new Slims. YMMV, but it's confirmed in Davis, CA and has been confirmed by another member also. Apparently they just received the email the other day to begin the process. Good luck!


Thanks so much to the guy who said they converted new PS2s to used at Gamestop this week. Just picked up a brand new sealed one for $39.99.



New-to-Used conversions are nationwide and affect every store. Every store receives an e-mail notifying them of the item they have in stock as New that are being converted to Used.

So yes, go trying to find some at a store near you. Since the SKU has been deleted from the systems, you'll have to call every store that has Used Slim PS2s in stock.

Argh. I just called 7 stores within 6 miles of me, and all of them say they haven't carried new PS2s for over 2 years.

If the OP confirmed in California and I confirmed in Virginia, I imagine it is nationwide.

the two gamestop's near me have them in stock used, how do I know if it's new converted to used because I asked and the girl on the phone had no clue what I meant. or only way to go in store?

i would say go in store and see if the seal stickers are still there on the box. and if they aren't you can still ask to see the PS2 itself and see if it looks brand new.

I called and asked if they have any new PS2s and all of my stores said no. Do the new PS2s show up as pre owned ps2s on their computer?

Grabbed the last one at my local Gamestop. I've been looking for a back-up ever since my backwards compatible PS3 died over the summer. Thanks a bunch, OP!

Two stores near me show "used" PS2 slims in stock... guess I'd have to go to the store and check the system itself to see if it's a converted system or an actual used one.

Hmmm, I'm assuming that if they already transfered them, it should show up as used now. If its close by, you should just go check them out yourself.

I've gotta check this out. Unfortunately my two closest gamestops no longer carry ps2 games.

I need a new signature.

Been waiting forever for a sub-$50 price on a new PS2. Crossing my fingers.

So if someone does you a massive favor, you might possibly consider tipping them for their time? What an incredible deal...for you!


Lol I was thinking the same thing, but I don't think the guy meant to sound like the tip was a maybe.

I'd have to drive 3 hours before I could get to a store that has had new PS2s in stock.. it must be different out in California, or New York.

The new PS2s, which are converted to used consoles, qualify for the current B2G1 promotion. According to the GS employee, a console can't be the free item.

Thanks so much for the post, OP! I was able to find a store that actually had some in-stock. This was after driving to 4 other GS in my area.

Good luck everyone!

I saw 3 of them still in box on the floor yesterday with the a card on top showing a $49.99 price slashed to $39.99. I should of looked deeper but was in hurry and just assumed they were used even though the box's looked be in mint condition. It was the silver slim model. I probably go back now and get 1 if it is indeed new.

My buddy and I each grabbed one from one of the stores on Transit ave in buffalo NY. They also had a new in box psp go marked $99. All three consoles were stacked on the counter between the two pos systems. I thought real hard about the go, but ended up passing on it. Up above the shelves where they keep the new games was a final fantasy Xbox 360 for $230. I fought the urge on that too. If the system had any kind of special graphics I would have grabbed it in a heartbeat. But since it's basically just a game packed in the box, I passed.

Thanks for the confidence. In my mind, the tone was supposed to be evoke the reader to ask, "How MUCH of a tip will I get?" not, "Will I get a tip at all."

I'm thinking about buying one since my dad is going to give me his collection since he can't play on his PS3. Decisions decisions.

FYI: Best Buy may also be clearing out the slim PS2's as well now. Unfortunately they were still marked MSRP when I was in there just before Black Friday and now they're all gone.

The've already marked down the peripherals to clearance pricing(memory cards for $5-10, etc).

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.
