Just learned that it's a mortal sin at gamestop to bring in a sealed copy of a game. Brought in AC:B to get credit for the B2G1 yesterday, and was denied service due to a policy against sealed games. Are they dumb or what?


You should tell them to pretend that it's a "new game" that was re-sealed as new, after being abused... er checked-out for a weekend, by their employees.

;)


I keed.

:wii: Super Mario Galaxy 2 $22

Really? Looks like I'm trading it in tomorrow. Have yet to play SMG1 but SMG2 is going for ~$35 used on Amazon. I figure after all is said and done i'm getting about ~$35 back after bonuses and I'll just buy it off Amazon next time I stack some credit.

I originally bought it for $25 from GF so its a win/win.

noob.

It's still a pretty dumb policy so I can see why some "noobs" arte shocked by it. How do they know your unsealed game isn't stolen? They should just reject all trades to be safe!

Personally I don't mind anyway - if I have a new game to trade in (which seems to be rare these days anyway) I'd much prefer to open it and keep the brand new case while giving GS back one of the crappy crumbled replacement cases that they send me from gamestop.com.

If you bought it used, you can return it within 7 days. If you bought it new, you can only trade it in. It is at $25 base so $37.50 with the bonus..$40 if you have a powerup card.

Yup I bought it for the multi player and its pretty lame. I'll probably let go of it soon.

Can someone clarify the 50% extra? Is it on all trade ins? Or only certain titles? Also, do you have to apply the credit towards another purchase right away?

I wonder if I should wait for another tiered promo (2/$5, 4/$10, 6/$20) to trade in my stack, or if I should do it now? I obviously can't sell them locally, hitting a brick wall there.


JP, any news on an upcoming tiered promo? Thanks brother.

Normally it's about the $12 mark for the percentage bonus to be better than the flat $10/$20/$25/$40/$50 bonuses for trading in during the bulk promos.

Ever since those employees in Memphis were arrested for taking in stolen goods Gamestop has made the sealed game policy roughly the same as the ESRB policy. Do it wrong & you're gone.

Yeah I've got 7 PS3 games, and with the 60% promo/PUR bonus it'd only equal $34.40 (21.50 before). That just doesn't sit right with me for some reason. Normally I come out on top with these deals, but idk this time. You'd think I could sell them locally for $60 or $50 as a bulk, but no go. I mean these cost close to $100 if you bought them used at GS.

Resistance
Resistance 2
Soul Calibur IV
Virtua FIghter
GTA IV
Warhawk
Bayonetta


Are those worth $34.40 TIV? I know most are older (heck i didn't even play 2 of them, warhawk is still sealed), but I still think they are worth a little more than that. IDK, $4.91 apiece just feels wrong lol.

wow killzone 3 tiv is only worth it if you get the +50% and powerup bonus. im hoping to plat it in the next few days, i cant keep this. mp is very underwhelming. i got all the mp trophies and the co op trophies with my man, now i just need to plow through the single player and im gonna tiv this asap. amazon only gives 11, omg. i hope gs tiv doesn't plummet next few days. i thought bulletstorm was gonna be overrated...kz3 is.

i wouldn't, bring them to a local shop or something if you have one. Mine would give me around $75 cash for those.

Yeah that's what sucks. I only have a really crappy run Play N Trade and Gamestops near me.


Even Amazon trade-in is ~$40-44 in credit, but I've read some bad horror stories about stuff going missing in the past week or so.


Guess I'll hold off.

For that list, I would lock in and go the Amazon route. Just make sure all games are complete and smudge free (knock on wood, many trade ins and no issues to date)
Sorry, but holding off on those titles will most likely not net you any additional $ more than Amazon. and I really doubt any game store would give you $75...if that be true, ship them to the CAG who thinks he can, and give him something for his time (that plus shipping and you would still be ahead...) but I really doubt those titles will garner $70-$75...you even wrote about a failed craigslist ad at less than that... that fail on it's own should have given you all the guidance you need...

If you cannot swallow GSs offer, Amazon is your best bet...

I've just heard really bad things lately about UPS in terms of items going missing.


The only thing missing in that list is the manual for Resistance 2. Does Amazon accept it if it is missing the book? It has the sleeve...(sorry, I'll delete these when I get confirmation, I've heard mixed results).
