Seriously, why are there cutscenes in a Forza game?

The problem with Gamestop trade-ins is that they never have good deals to spend the credit on.

All these trade-ins could help me get a Wii U cheap or save up for something awesome later in the future! But I do have a question though? So these trade-in values are available for free GameStop members too? If so, I can get 10% more since I'm a Pro member, just making sure if I got that right? Another thing, will I get more for Forza Horizon if its the Limited Edition?

That and Dead Island GOTY I got for $8 now $20?

Damn, awesome prices for some of these games. Metroid Prime Trilogy gets $40, that's insane. Now I regret not buying Dead Island for $8 on BF, would have made a clean $12 profit.

Bully: Scholarship Edition - Xbox 360 $15.00
Call of Duty Black Ops Declassified - PS Vita $30.00
Dance Central 3 - Xbox 360 $30.00

You're thinking of the PC version, while the gamestop promo is for the PS3/360 version.

That's because MPT goes for around $60-70 for the disc only, and way more for the steelbook on ebay. I know not everyone likes ebay, but in this case gamestop is shorting you half the value.

Counter-point: gamestop will give you $20 for NSMB DS ($15 on ebay), $25 for sly cooper collection ($16 sold via newegg on ebay, or on newegg itself), and $20 for smash bro brawl ($20 on ebay if you sell it, minus fees, shipping, etc, so GS is more).

They "reserve the right to modify at any times". In the past with big lists like this, I've seen that mid-way through the promo some games just drop off the list completely. My advice is to trade as fast as possible if you're going to do it at all.

I think we all know you don't really have to ask.
This is a fluid list (as usual with Gamestop). Values may even drop during the day. I'll be there this afternoon, and any experienced CAG will not wait until tomorrow.

$30 TIV for Black Ops Declassified? Damnit, I'm out of excuses. I guess I'm going to Target to pick up a BO: D Vita bundle later today. I can nearly trade that POS 1:1 for Persona 4 and call it good.
