dont know why anyone would want to tamper with it but i guess some people are odd.

You would be surprised how many people try to screw with the prices on a regular basis. All price updates go into a moderation queue until they are verified. That process is mainly used to weed out the Halo 3 $9999.99 inputs and stuff like that.

damnit why did they have to extend the 20% promo, i was hoping for something better. guess i'll probably trade my games in today since gs is the best option at the moment and the games i have will probably drop down in value by the time a new one starts

argh, I'm kicking myself for not locking in Amazon's trade-in value of $32.50 for Shattered Dimensions. They dropped it down to $20.

out of curiosity, what's people's experience been like using scanned coupons at their local gs?

Amazon's price will likely go up, as it always does. Enslaved was around $26 a few days ago, now it's at $39.




yup. Most new games start at $25 and then fluctuate up or down a few weeks later. Its been like this for a long time now.

The TIV at FYE should be around $32($31.75 according to SecondSpin.com) and that's cash, credit would be I believe 20% more or so without having to have their discount card.

Just in case you want another option besides Amazon or GS. Toys R' Us and Best Buy's values are between $23 and $26.

i added a link to more wang pics. yu wang i mean not wang wang as in penis.

One of my GameStops had coupons for $5 off any (new) Wii game on 10/23/2010, between 1PM and 4PM. Not sure if if anyone's mentioned it at all.

The coupon has the url:

MoH on PS3- $23

No I didn't trade it in, it was a quote given to the kid in line in front of me in store. I am currently renting the title from Blockbuster if you're looking at my trophy list.

wtf, why is that so low? I want to trade it in either GS or AMazon in a few weeks till I platinum it since its pretty lame and maybe buy COD7 or something. $23 is a joke though. Atleast should be mid $40s...

No base TIV at Gamestop is more than $30. Most new releases on PS360 now are anywhere from $20-$25 at launch. You have to stack with the percentage promos to get $30-$35 for it.

Also I can confirm the base TIV's no longer show on the receipts in St. Louis. You have to add up the promos and subtract from the total on the right to get the base value.

That is retarded. Gamestop's trade-in service is just that, a service. To write and complain about them not putting the base trade-in value on the receipt is... futile, at best.

I actually give GS a lil more credit than you.
Few hundred customers write about a POS change that can easily be reversed to make them happy for free...
I think it will happen ... but no not if only a couple write in.
and pretty please rethink the use of retarded.

lol it makes sense.

They don't like these threads, if people check a TIV on here and it's too low they don't come into the store. People who come into the store to check are more likely to say "fuck it" and trade it in even if they don't like the value. And more likely to spend money.

Sorry Hillary Duff.

It is not in Gamestop's interest to put the base value on receipts. Why do you think they changed it?

Will Gamestop take in a RROD Xbox 360? I know I wouldn't get much for it, but it's something. Plus I can trade in the hard drive, controllers, wireless, etc. to get more towards a new system w/kinect.

I think you give GameStop too much credit. I doubt these threads or the TIV tracker bother them much at all. The people who use this kind of thread or the TIV tracker are the people who know how to work the system. I'd say about 80% of their trades are kids/parents or people who just don't care. If it really did is that they would contact CheapyD and request that he not host the data. They have spent a lot of advertising money here.

I think the more likely scenario is that they are trying to cut even more costs and one area is in the paper rolls. A trade-in of just 7 games, if they cut out the price/promo breakdowns on the printout, that receipt size is cut in half if not more.

They no longer take in the RROD consoles. You can trade in the components on their own.
