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...

This cant be possible. Maybe your "friend" is just trying to get you into EB so he can push more pre-played products on you (in which, that case, he isn't really much of a friend at all). ;)

But really, what would happen if these dropped a month later? They're going to lose tons of profit on merchandise.... which is why this cant be true.

I support Rozz 100%.

Rozz is always right.

Rozz, you're the best.

Impressive, you are the greatest human to grace this planet.

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.

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