Not sure if it's been said or not but my local Saturday newspaper has some of the Sunday ads. BBY ad lists the next promo as just 50% bonus; no mention of needing to preorder anything.

Bought Hot Shots Golf Vita for $20 at Walmart and I find that I am not playing it as much as I thought I would. Base at BBY is $11, so trading it in.

Does anyone know if the in store estimate will be lower if I have already used the online pass?

I want to know what people think. Do you guys overall like the 100% or do you prefer 50% and regular looking TIV's?

Having used the pass up will not change your trade in value in anyway. There is no way they could know anyways.

With many of the games that I traded in, the base trade values during this promotion were actually the same or slightly higher than Amazon's. So it goes without saying that I like the 100% bonus more.

They're about the same, really. I do like not having to pre-order anything, though. I'm tired of canceling them and running the risk of getting banned.

I dumped a lot during this promo. I've got a bunch of games I'd like to trade in, but BB gives like a quarter per UMD.

The 100% works well for the smaller dollar trades, the 4-9 dollar types. If you are trading in newer games the deals are probably pretty even.

+1 This was great for most of those games at that value. In some cases they were as good or better than trying to sell on eBay. Those TIVs most likely won't go up either with the 50% bonus.

I'm definitely trying to, but playing Inversion via co-op with another CAG till 5 this morning and two hours and forty five minutes of that being just on one chapter/boss fight alone means I may not make it to BB with that game before the end of the day today.

Honestly, the boss fights in that game are so motherfuckin' repetitive(we've taken on the same boss 3x now in 3 different chapters, getting progressively harder each time:roll:) that I'll admit I almost stopped playing it this morning for good.

Then again, we are playing through on HARD difficulty, when I'd have likely played through on wussy mode(easy) and been done with it.:razz:

But it's actually nice having a bit of a challenge in a game for once, though over two hours for one level and/or boss was really pushing my patience.:bomb:

Anyone do the GS $10 Mortal Kombat Vita to $26 TIV at Best Buy? Too lazy to go and attempt it. It's hot outside.

Too bad my GS gc from eRewards wouldn't show up already today or I'd likely try that for at least one copy.;)

But according to the thread on here it's $10 online only. So unless you find a GS that's willing to PM their website you're SOL and would have to wait for shipping.

People on another forum are saying that the price is in-store as well.

Like I said, if I had the eRewards card by now(redeemed for it 2 days ago or so), then I might consider doing that. But knowing my luck it'll show up Monday.:roll: Besides which, I plan on immediately using $15.89 to renew my PUR with a manager who's been really cool for a really long time to me to bump up his sub numbers.;)

Quick question: do you need the case and/or manual when you trade in a game?

I beat it on hard mode solo and there is this section right before the final boss that might not make it worth to hold on for the end of the day because it's so frustrating. Nobody plays this online as I only found 1 person to play with in the hour of waiting so I played 1 vs 1. I just took my 720 achievement score and kept it moving.

If it's anywhere near the Slave Driver boss from Chapter 11 this morning, then I predict my patience will run out. That was SO annoying this morning to have 20 guys running after you plus the boss, plus some bigger guys with guns nailing you.:-#

Hey guys got some news for you, it seems like Best Buy might be giving up on gaming. They are cutting the job/role of gaming supervisor. Also, the gaming employees are being absorbed back into general employees. So there aren't going to be dedicated gaming employees anymore. I heard this from my local gaming supervisor.

that could just be something at your store which may not be making money in that department. Doesnt necesarily it will be the same across the board as gaming may be more profitable elsewhere

Yes! You still have a few hours

That's plausible but my local store has been number 1 in the districts for games. So we'll see, it still really sucks though.
