Interesting. I wonder if they'll take trade-ins for Blu rays now.

Probably. They'll give you $1 for them then sale them for $1 less than a new one.

Gamestop must have finally figured out a way to heavily scratch BD's easily.

The bunch I saw last week were mostly Sony Pictures (et al.) blu rays with little or no special features versions, and are actually new just gutted. Must be "oem/value" versions.

The heck, Gamestop does not have the shelf space for this...it's already cram packed that they throw away handheld game boxes.

I saw these over the weekend. They said they were not going to be taking trades on blurays. What was funny is the guy told me they were "used" but not really. They took the shrink wrap off all them, lol

Like I said in the other thread, you can get most of these movies new for less at more standard retail stores.

The old days kicked ass, when they regularly took DVD's and blu-rays for trade. Sure, they traded for crap, but buy 2 get 4 free... each blu-ray was roughly $6. DVD's ranged from $1 - $10. Epic!

No joking, but that is actually Fye's trade in values. Well I've seen $0.25 personally.

Yeah i noticed this in stores a few weeks ago and thought the pricing was pathetic but i was hoping in a couple years they could get enough inventory to actually have competitive pricing. Now that i know they just received a shipment of these, unwrapped them, and priced them a couple dollars less then MSRP all hope for me is lost.

Any chance that the $5 off used game coupon would apply to these?

Ugh. You're better off buying used from blockbuster or go hastings.

These prices could be a YMMV. I picked up Family Guy: Something, Something, Darkside for $4.49 at my local GS.

The price for some of these are stupid though. $11.99 for Spiderman, when it's $10 at Target. Wanted is only $7.99 on Amazon.

When I was there last week the manager said they were all 9.99. I wonder if they are all half price now? He said it was only a seasonal display.
