You can trade in any combination of 360 or PS3 games and get FNR4 for 360 or PS3 as long as they are on the list.

now the other question is, can you turn in multiple copies of the same game. I mean technically I don't see any reason why not, but because of the language in the ad, they can almost deny any returns for any reason, like them turning someone down who comes in with brand new sealed copies. This is a decent deal if you can get some cheap games at target and, in my opinion, exchange FNR2 for something else that will retain it's value for a much longer period of time, like for example inFamous for PS3 (sony 1st party titles tend to hold their MSRP's for MUCH longer than most other games). FNR2 will probably drop to 40 bucks within 4 months I bet. I do want to get it too eventually though.

Three or four people on this very thread have already said "no."

Riddick alone I can sell for $32 on Amazon at the moment...If you give me about 2 days after Fight Night 4's release, I'll find it for $50-55. So yeah, I would take you up on that deal, and I'm not the only one who thinks this "deal" isn't worth mentioning.

Even if you can find 3 of these games on the list for $15, you're still wasting your time because you could have sold them for $25-30 each... But whatever, buy into their offer, glad it's not my money being wasted.


If you found 3 games on the list for 12.48, which I did, at a Target right next door to Gamestop, which I did, then this is saving 20+ on a 59.99 game without having to try to sell anything on ebay or trade it on amazon. Instant gratification rules.

Wish they would do something like this for a game I am actually interested in.

I came up empty.. wasted gas.. my Target only had PS3 wheelman for 14.98, and prince of persia xbox 360 also 14.98... I know they recently had TONS of that smackdown vs. raw though, and it was just a couple days ago. decent deal if you can snag it.. even if I found another game for 10, I didn't think it would be worth it, 'cause fnr2 will drop in price pretty quick imo.

Ask for a gift receipt. They don't show the trade in transactions. Then return it to another store for credit.


Thank you....is there a certain amount of time to return it? If so, you can just return it for STORE CREDIT? That would be nice as I would prefer NHL 10 or something else.

yeah I'd personally much rather if they let you get NHL 10 instead.


well, what im goin to try to do is get fight night, return it for store credit and use it to purchase tekken 6 when it comes out. i wonder if itll work...

The OP's image states "Marvel Ultimate Alliance Gold/Platinum."

The Gold is the updated version, but what's the Platinum?

I'm still wondering about this. I have the "regular" version.

I know there was some back & forth on whether Edge was stacking with this offer, but I can confirm it at least happened for me. The combined base value of my trade-ins was ~$40 but I still ended up getting $4.xx back after getting FNR4.

I think you mean FNR4. I do not get why people think it will drop in price. Fight Night Round 3 was one of those games where I just couldn't find a price lower than $15 on.

And three or four people are wrong.

I suspect it might be YMMV but I just traded in 2 copies of the same game and the guy had no problem with it.

You never know until you try.

I also traded 2 of the same game-Left for Dead x2 and Folklore. The system accepted it with no problem.

Went to Target and bought:

SvR 2009-$12.48
Wheelman-$14.98
Scene It BOS-$9.98

Traded them in to GS and looked like Scene-It wasn't part of the list. I bought the game anyway for $21.96 w/ tax. Not Bad.

Went back today, with 007 unsealed this time and still almost had a problem.

I walk in and set my three games on the counter and said "I want to do the Fight Night deal". Now I should mention that the games I set down on the counter were 2 PS3 games on top of a 360 game. So the girl replied "sorry, we only have the game for people who pre-ordered". I said " that's great" took my games back and headed for the door. She then says "wait, did you want it for the 360 or PS3?" I said "PS3" and she said "oh, we have plenty " so I turn around and see 20 FN4's sitting on the shelf. Then she says "the last guy wanted it for the 360 and that's why I said we didn't have any".

And then they charged me $3.60 to cover the sales tax which seems odd since I didn't buy anything so why would I have to pay a sales tax? How can they charge sales tax on a free item?

Got my copy...traded in Monsters v Aliens, NBA 09, & 007:QOS. It was strange because I wasn't charged tax (I don't have an edge card if that matters). My receipt shows my used trade total at $59.99 and the game sold to me for $59.99...no tax???

Now I just need to decide what game I want to exchange it for? Is anyone having problems exchanging for a different game w/a gift receipt?

Thanks to the OP and everyone else that helped out.

edit: LOL...I just read your post Evolved. Me and you were both confused about the same thing but for opposite reasons. You getting charged tax, me not. I just assumed I would since everyone else was listing a $64 credit.

I went in to my local gamestop with L4D, Quantum, and Fifa Soccer 09 and I told them I wanted the FNR4 deal. The guy at the counter told me that they did not have that promotion going on. I told him I saw the deal on their website and he didn't even try to help me out at all. I left the store angry at how unwilling to help the guy at the counter was. I called another gamestop that is 15 mins away and they told me that the promotion was indeed going on. I would have gone to that gamestop but by the time I would have gotten there they would have closed already. He also told me that the promotion ended today so basically now I can't get it.:bomb::bomb::bomb:

Went out and picked up 3 (360) games for $37 after tax, Monsters vs. Aliens and Fear2 for $12.48 and Banjo... for $9.98. So I'm getting Fight Night when it releases for 37 bucks. That's a great deal. Now I just hope all goes well at Gamestop tomorrow!

Hey, I don't need a Edge card to take advantage of this right? I hate those membership card things!

Yes, that's why it's listed as "Get $59.99 off" instead of FREE.

Although it varies by state....

Traded:

:360: Rainbow Six Vegas 2 $9.75 base
:360: Monsters vs. Aliens $15 base
:360: WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2009 $16 base

The 10/20/40 deal would have ended up slightly better on the last 2, assuming I had 4 other games to trade in with them, but not a big difference. I paid $1.47 tax.

There are 2 reasons (3, if you count states without sales tax) why some people might have to pay tax while others do not. One is that some states do not tax the use of store credit, while others do. Since you are trading in 3 games for $59.99 credit (which must be used on FNR4), if your state does not tax the use of store credit, you don't pay tax. The other reason would be if 10% of your trade base value exceeds the amount of tax on a $59.99 game (assuming the use of Edge). Because my games' base credit total was $40.75, Edge kicked in $4.08 towards tax, so I only had to give $1.47 of the $5.55 tax being charged (9.25% sales tax rate, but no state income tax). I hope that clears it up a bit.
