:lol:

I didn't mean as in trade it in on Amazon! I meant sell it through their Marketplace (if you don't mind shipping it yourself and everything that goes with it):

http://www.amazon.co...&condition=used

See. More "valuable," right? :applause: When I checked a few days ago there were more obscene prices like $300. I guess it dropped closer to what you would've paid retail for a new one back then. But, they're definitely out of production and people still seem to want them. The reason I can see the price being so high is because the MadCatz one lacks force feedback and can't use the regular Xbox rechargeable batteries. On top of that, the only other "affordable" option is that unreleased motion-sensing wheel Microsoft has shown off at E3.


I want one... So bad..

Does anyone know the Current TIV for the official xbox 360 racing wheel? I have the box and everything as well.


Gamestop doesn't take it, sell it on Amazon Marketplace.

Yeah I saw it was about $24 on amazon. Was hoping for a bit more. Hopefully you're right about them being valuable. I don't see them anywhere. I may be better off waiting until the next big racing game, I guess Forza 4 comes out relatively soon. Thanks for the response.


Ill give you whatever Amazons TiV is plus $10 and shipping :D

Why do they keep doing all of these promos that cancel each other out?

That list may by YMMV, as I went to TRU today and bought 2 copies of LA Noire in their 2 for $50 deal (one for each system) and took them to Gamestop with the intention of trading them towards modern warfare 3 preorder...After they rang up at the bonus trade value, the employee was fine with me putting it towards any of my preorders...so I could have put it on battlefield 3 or anything else if I'd wanted. It may depend on if you're on friendly terms with the GS employees...they consider me a regular at my local GS, so I don't know if that's why they weren't strict about it.

Funny a buddy of mine is trying to trade an L.A. Noire copy that he got from TRU also. I'll go with him later to GS and ask about it. Thanks for the info

Totally panicked and ended up trading in at that price. I hate that these guys don't post their TIVs online.

Has anyone ever transferred pre-orders from 1 store to another? I'll be in another state this fall, but this is a nice deal (instead of waiting for the next 40% trade in to come in July).

I don't think it's possible, but it would be really nice! OR if they would just let me do the online order right in store just so they can see it... again I know probably not possible, but would be nice!

Generally it's not possible from what I've understood. You can try to get the other store to give you a refund and then preorder it again in the next store, but that kindof defeats the purpose.

I was in a store over the weekend for the B2G1 and there was a guy there trying to do this exact thing. He's in the military and was stationed in Georgia and had a game preordered. Things changed, he got moved up here, and was trying to get his preorder transferred. The employee was clueless about this even being possible and spent a while on the phone with the district manager about figuring out how to make it work.

Why don't you just cancel your pre-order at one store and then pre-order it at the next?

Wow, this is my exact problem! Well I asked a GS clerk and he didn't have much of an answer. He told me it really depends on the manager and if he's nice enough, He then said something about being able to do it via gift card, but Im not sure how that works. He said it is possible and he does it for his customers.

I too heard a lot of people asking about moving preorders over the weekend. (Is it the time of year to get pre-orders you can't pickup?) Seems like your best bet is to just do the pre-order then cancel it and get your credit back before you move.

Hey thanks for posting the new MK price, sucks it's down to $27 after 10%/40% bumps instead of $37.50 with the base price in OP....

TIV is $30 on Amazon i'll stick with there. It's my extra copy from my cheapo cheapass $84 TE stick bundle score. :D

Anyone have a clue what a DS lite trades for? I see the extra $25 bonus on systems so I guess I'll take mine in tomorrow and expect to get about $26...

Sucks that MK dropped. I'm guessing LA Noire did as well. I'll see on that tomorrow too.

stopped in today to see the trade in value. I did the same thing you did. Right now it's at $18, not too bad if you trade toward something for the 40%, but I'm gonna wait to see what amazon lists their value at.

That's what I was going to try and do, but I wasn't sure how their computers worked. Like if their computers had knowledge of when/how I pre-ordered it. Like if it I cancelled it a few weeks from now if it would take away the 40% promo and leave me with just the basic 10%.

I was hoping it'd work that way, but just didn't want their computer to realize that the money was supposed to be used towards a certain pre-order and thus kick off the promo later on. Thanks guys!
