Metal Gear Soid: Peace Walker - 18

I asked because I got the Big Boss Bundle and have the Collectors Edition of the game coming, only paid 37.50 for the CE, so getting 28.80 of it back isn't bad.

neiname,

didn't they give you the 3 for $10 bonus on any of them? Or are they above and the 50% below?



Yes top ones were for the 3 for $10 and bottom were the +50%.

Wow I ordered Splinter Cell Conviction online today at like 1PM, it shipped sometime today, and apparently it's a 10 mile drive from my house! I am so lucky, gonna enjoy this tomorrow :D Unless USPS works in a way where 10 miles takes 2 days :|

Came today! Played the first two areas, I'm so glad that I live in a real convenient place to get games fast. My biggest beef with ordering online is that I get real impatient and can' wait, but you can't beat next-day :D

The first time gamestop.com had the 25deal code it worked on preorders, so I got that for 37.50 , Red Dead for 45, and a few others.

Question for JP/mods/community:

Should there be a "try to sell online before going to Gamestop" addendum to the OP or would it have to be a different thread in a different forum for particular older accessories, like the PS2 Network Adapter or Gamecube component cables for example? I know it's a slippery slope so that's why I think it should be limited to accessories, but there's got to be people trading in PS2 Network Adapters and not realizing they can get 6-10 times online what Gamestop is offering them for it.

Game prices and Gamestop promotions fluctuate so much that you can USUALLY get close to what you paid for something if its fairly new or you can at least get a DECENT offer for older stuff, but I'm sure some people would like to know they could sell X accessory for much more than Gamestop will buy it for. I know I didn't realize what PS2 NA's went for on EBay until I became a CAG 4 years ago so it might be something to help out newer members.

Of course I guess it would be so filled with abuse that it couldn't be done, but just food for thought I guess.

Just guesses but:
1. Nobody really wants them.
2. Gamestop doesn't make hardly any money off of them because everything is digital download on them so the only add-ons they could do would be accessories (best option financially for Gamestop) or point cards/game cards (but there's little profit margin in those.)

Probably preordered it from gs.com before they stopped you from being able to use the 25% off codes on preorders.

I've had instances where USPS took 2-3 days for 2 miles.

Of course I guess it would be so filled with abuse that it couldn't be done, but just food for thought I guess.

To be honest, it seems that about 50-60% of the people don't even read the first page let alone the entire first post. I could add it, but those values are very dynamic. Right now the PS2 network adapters don't get anywhere near what they were 6-8 months ago. At least from what I've seen. Also, like you said, it's a slippery slope. Where do you cut the line off? Why just accessories? It could very quickly get out of control, which is another reason I don't necessarily think a portion in the first post is really the correct place.

Since I've been doing this thread in particular I have seen no less than 3 attempts at this, either in the trading forum or in the deal/shopping discusses forum. It always fails. The trading thread ones always fail because they only offer like $2-$3 above gamestop offerings and never add-in shipping costs. The threads with info normally get buried. It's just one of those things.

Those are just my thoughts on it though. Mod may have a different idea entirely.

I traded it in today for RDR. So here ya go! Thanks for the awesome list JP!

GTA IV Episodes from Liberty City - $11 (6/08/10)

I aim to serve. Glad to be of help to the community. Thanks for the values! Keep 'em coming everyone.

Working on updating right now guys. It does look like tomorrow will be the same scenario. No chance to update until later in the evening.

Overlord Minions(DS) $1.75


Thanks for this new quote! I have an extra one of these from the BBV sale and didn't know what to do with it. Turning that $2.50 purchase into about $5.25 at Gamestop is nothing spectacular, but it is good filler for the trade 3 deal and clears up that much more space from my game clutter ;).

To be honest, it seems that about 50-60% of the people don't even read the first page let alone the entire first post. I could add it, but those values are very dynamic.


jp, what I would do on those two particular items (PS2 NA and GC component cables) is just put a note in the list saying that they are much more valuable online than what GS gives. I think I did that with a few items when I maintained the list. There is no need for a special section (that you are right, no one would read). But if it is just a few words after the price on special items like that people are more likely to see it.

Good call on that. Will do that here in a few minutes. Got the lists caught up, almost done getting the database up to date.

Updates to lists database complete. Thanks for the ideas and wording MSUHitman and io. Got that taken care of as well.
