Heres hoping a new thread means new huge rises in the stock price. Stock went up to 47 cents, so my total net loss is only $324 now

*grumble grumble*.

ummmm, can anyone tell me the TIV for Wii Sports? I'm so sick of that worthless game ;).

I really lost track of the last thread over the past couple of weeks. I'll have to keep up with this one a bit better.

I know I got an $8 quote for Kung Fu Panda on Friday, so unless it dropped this week, it should still be a 1.5, which is a good flip these days. *EDIT* And I see that it's still $8 this week. Thanks JAR.

I'm going to give the weekly special flip a try tomorrow. For anyone else who wants to:

New thread, nothing new at BB. Just spent the last of my gs credit on killzone 2 and hopefully there will be some worthwhile cash flips that I can put into games I would've bought anyways. Oh well, it was a great ride.

any flips from bbv to gs. I'd take even 1:1 as I just wanna switch some credit to cover a dsi. I'm gonna sell my psp. Just no good games for it anymore. Seems like much more support on games for the ds. I got more than enout gs credit, its just that I got $100+ bbv credit doing nothing, and its pretty much useless to me unless I want a new game.

Also anyone looked that the amazon trade ins. A few aren't that bad. Like beautiful katamari I saw trades in for $9. I got that during the b1g1 and I'm done with it.

I doubt you'll get much for it at BB. I would toss it up on amazon or eBay if you're wanting to get rid of it. You'll probably get around $30 for it.

Are there any known current 1:1 (or better, obviously) flips from GS? Or even just close to 1:1? I don't have the means to print out covers (only have a black-and-white laser printer), so can't do the weekly special flip).

No updates on a timeline for the rumored B1G1 again at BB? I'd like to pick up UT3 again with the upcoming Titan patch, but figured I'd wait until the next sale.

I was just at BBV in San Antonio and there's a sign up promoting the B1G1 free sale on all used games $14.99 and under. I didn't find anything noteworthy so I can't confirm that it is in fact active, but there was a small flyer in the window as I was walking in. I'm going to visit another BBV this afternoon to try to confirm but from what I can tell it is happening. Just good luck finding anything decent. I was hoping to pick up Bioshock but it looks like they put a $19.99 sticker over the old $14.99 one. The only games I saw that were under $14.99 for Xbox 360 were: The Club, Transformers, Spider-Man 3, Fracture, and Condemned 2. Everything else that I saw was $19.99 or greater.

Whaaa? It seems hard to believe that would have started and we wouldn't know till now (given the usual Tuesday start day for these things) - unless all of us are really ignoring BBV now. I know I haven't been there in a few weeks.

But if there is a B1G1 it is too soon - it needed to be a bit later once they drop more converted rental stuff down into that price range. As metallicoholic noted, there isn't much to buy now.

Sorry, I missed some pages in the old thread....

What is everyone talking about in regards to new trade-in values? Last time I traded in a game (month or so ago) I got a great deal as usual.

Has that changed or something?

Basically, Blockbuster drastically changed their TIV system to "be more competitive" with Game Stop. Now it seems like the max any game will get is $25, instead of $35 (or $36 for PS3).

I'm actually OK with another B1G1 sale since I just bought a Wii, and I know that several of my BBVs have Wii games that I'd like to purchase.

Yeah but don't forget the games have to be $14.99 or under to qualify.

There is so much at my BBV's, I could easily double any investment into GS credit. GTA4's would amount to $7.50 -> $18 with the current tier promotion. If I could only find that GH/GH2 double pack for PS2 that i saw a few weeks ago, that's $17 base TIV and I think it was $10 at BBV.
I'm attempting to sell some rarities:

-SCPH-1110 (aka sony ps1 flightstick)
-R4 box with Jogcon controller and t-shirt (JP)
-Earthbound, complete

Go back and look at the example I posted after I responded to your post (back one page). Those two games would have gotten $35 and $26 or so a month ago. Now they are only getting $25 and $19.

I know. There are several games that are $14.99 and under that I would like to get:

Battalion Wars 2
Bully
Excite Truck
MLB Power Pros
No More Heroes
Okami
Geometry Wars
Nights
Sega Super Star Tennis
Sonic & the Secret Rings
Super Swing Golf 2
Zack & Wiki
Cranium Kabookii

Obviously, not all of these games are available, but a handful of them are at my local BBVs.

A B1G1 would be great as well because of the fact that there a few flippable PS2 games now that Amazon is taking trade-ins.
