well I shouldn't have posted this apparently, my friend is pretty upset. Please lock/delete, and expect this deal to be over soon.

This seems highly unlikely unless it was to open a huge new store, even though seems pretty unreal. If this ever goes into effect, I'll be the first to call out sick and get in line.

If this is true, which I hardly think it is, then I say goodbye to my xbox and hello xbox 360.

Nice, but I find it hard to believe.
Gamestop/ebgames usually give you next to nothing in terms of trade in.
and all of a sudden, we're getting paid whatever they usually charge for a used game - $5?
that seems like a drastic improvement.
Hopefully, it is true.
We'll see.

Most GS/EB profit comes from used games sales. Do you really think they are going to undermine it by doing this insane offer?

No, they won't. Shenigans!

I thought the same things, I was just passing along something my old boss told me. I know if it's true, I'll be very tempted to trade in a lot of games I wasn't planning on getting rid of..

Maybe they're just bored of making a profit and want to try something new?

Only if they did it with "selected" games $20 or less and absolutely no consoles. Otherwise I smell a late April"s fool...

Nope, he was my boss for 3 years, he's not my "friend," he's my friend.
I'll post a receipt scan when I trade something in.

It could be interesting if this runs for a month, we could send things across country to be traded in. Or not.

I think a lot of people got swept away by the thought of fantastic deals.

If you're too damn lazy to read the first post in a thread, F your ability to get a deal.

EB/GS thought about doing this hoping nobody had games left after Katrina... when they noticed interest, they realized these people still had them

Nah, neither of these stores got looted afaik.

Neither of the managers I know was working tonight, so I didn't bother trying verify this, since someone said they called and were told something different. I'll try tomorrow night.
I'm not sure why this hasn't been moved yet, I'm sorry it's taking up space on the wrong forum.

Hm - I would think the Clearview mall one would be the one doing this (if theres even one in CV) :-s again - I thought that area had some damage to it.

But it kinda makes sense to me because they probably don't have a ton of used stock at the moment but still, you'd think their regional HQ would just ship som boxes down. Hopefully this pans out.
