What are the accessories required to trade in with a PSP? Just the AC adapter, or do I need to include a memory card as well?

If you have any left over 2010 season sports games, you better trade them in by tomorrow. They will be next to worthless after Sunday.

No memory card needed. You'll get a TIV for that as well if you wanna throw that in there.

You just need the PSP, battery, and AC adaptor.

You just missed the base TIV which was $80 a few weeks ago (good thing I turned that one in on time).

If you opt for cash, it is 20% lower and you do not receive any bonus credit from promo's.

The new promos beginning 9/6 are

Trade in 3 360/Wii/PS3 games and receive an extra $10 credit

Trade in 5 360/Wii/PS3 games and receive an extra $20 credit


Games that are $2.00 or less are EXCLUDED from this offer, and will not work


There is also a Kinect and Move trade in offer

Trade in any games towards the purchase/pre-order of the 360 Kinect or Playstation Move and receive an extra 25% trade in bonus.


The Power Trade 25% offer is still going on, and I think Kirby Epic Yarn is added, but I forgot what the other two games are. I think Halo Reach is still one of them also.

NHL 10 and the NBA games (Live 10 and NBA 2K10) most definately. Easy $40 for Halo Reach or Metroid: Other M.

Also NHL 2k10 for Wii & Tiger Woods 10 for PS3/Wii.

I honestly feel bad that I've traded in so many sports games this week.

I am really hoping that the baseball game I have holds value over $2 by Monday so I can drop it with 4 other games!

I have another I can put in there just in case but I'd rather keep it if I can and drop the baseball game instead.

A large majority of values that are $2.25-$2.50 right now will probably be $2 or less come Monday morning.

Well the game I have was worth $4.00 on 8/21/10 so I am hoping to god it is still over $2 by Monday.

man amazon didnt delivery the AC hook up for my Pink (crimson rose) Ds lite

with 20 buck add on it would of netted me 50 bucks...

without the AC hook up they said 35

I think i can sell a DS lite for more then 35 on ebay so probally go that route .

50 even seemed very low for a DS LITE

if i cant dump it i can always use it as a GBA on the go
WOOOO I STINK

What would be a good source for games that could be purchased and used on the $20 for 5 bonus? Obviously we're talking games that are likely only slightly above the $2.00 non qualification line and preferably could be purchased for a total price of $26.05 or less to maintain at least a 15% margin?

BB B1G1 is a possibility if you can find 10 games for 9.99 or less, that would cost you $50 and assuming a minimum only value of 2.25 or less net you 22.50 + $40 bonus for a total of 62.50 or 25% profit. Of course, games of higher than minimum value are quite possibly found and naturally raise the margins considerably. Of course, Monday 9/6 will be the last day for this.

Anyone else aware of widely available sources?

Had an interesting conversation with one of our local GameStop employees today. I was purchasing a used copy of Resident Evil 5: Gold Edition and let slip that it trades in at Best Buy for $25.00 even though it's priced $14.99 (before EDGE) used at GameStop. The employee stated that they're supposed to honor the Best Buy trade-in values. I'm not sure if that meant ALL Best Buy trade-in prices or just the ones for the games on the "$20.00 Gift Card" list. Might be YMMV, but that's the info I got from the local store so I figured I'd pass it along.

lucky labrat, they never let me trade 2 of the same for 40 deals or i could have done better with my splinter cell convictions... they always say no duplicates at the only gamestop i have left around here. my buddy manager's gamestop closed down so i got no more hookups, argh! years of building friendly relations with employees all gone! argh lol

edit- oh, 2 dif systems, i get it... peace
