I'm not wasting gas. The only Gamestop's that have it are a good 30 minutes away and I'll only be over there Friday.

When an order to convert CE's to USED comes down, the extras are all thrown in the trash or the employees take them home. If the GS stores in your area are on the ball, then that may happen the same day the order comes down. Meaning that if you wait till Friday, you might be SOL.:-#

Take this SKU in with you as soon as you can to your local GS stores: 270907

If any of them still have one in stock, then you should be able to grab it for the pre-owned price.

Luckily for me, it's showing two of my local stores still having them in stock. Since they're closed now, I may take a trek there tomorrow and use up the remaining $4 on my latest eRewards gc to grab it, hopefully before they gut it and chuck everything else.

Of course, this will be like the 3rd or 4th time I've owned the game.:lol:

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

Sarcasm-Just one of the many services I offer.

Just called 2 somewhat near Gamestops and they said they had it but it was still $100. Might just wait a week or so and see. Is there anywhere on their site that shows it as $18.

I'll call a few more but dont want to break the 10 mile mark.


dude thosee effers are totally lying to you...go say u wanna buy it for a 100 they will ring it up and itll be 19 lol man those guys seriously, they dont get paid enough that they cant afford the damn game and have to lie.

First rule is never to call on a deal like that.

Thanks for the advice. I'm hoping that my old manager is there and he can help me track it down.

:lol:This will be the 3rd time I owned the game. I brought the CE on launch like a foul. Returned it and got the standard edition for $30 at BestBuy on Black Friday. Now I'm going to get the CE again for $20. What a year for me owning this game.

Actually one of the mods on the BB forums said something about considering opening up small mall stores that would just buy/sell games and likely hardware & accessories.

It'd be great if it happens, since then they might be able to give GS a run for their money.:D


I'm vacillating between this being an amazing thing or another nail in the best buy coffin. Right now I'm leaning toward good idea.

So if a game is not on the trade-in page, will you still be able to trade it in at stores?

I have Fall of Cybertron sitting here that I want to trade, but it's not on the website yet to check the value.

You should still be able to trade it in. Problem being is they'll most likely have to ring it as a generic game, and give you 50 cents for it.

Better to wait for it to be added to the system. Just a hunch :D

Fucking best buy is starting to piss me off, manager walked by during my trade in and said they can't accept game's that say "Not for Resale". Anyone else ever have this problem?



When this happened in the past, I just asked them to type in the game name and search. Recently however, the employee just told me to keep the artwork and case and accepted it disc only when ever he saw the "Not For Resale".

I did that with a few during my last flip, left that potential problem out and just did disc only.

Convinced a buddy to trade in NCAA for Madden, which is pretty decent this year so far

my store just hired some new bitch ( and i do mean bitch) who specifically told me that her job was to make sure that all tradeins came with case and intact barcode. she wouldnt even take my games after i showed her that they had used copies without an original box :roll:. so yea, add my store to the long list of crappier bestbuy's now.

Did an epic trade in today. Traded in 80 games of my collection for $700 in gift card credit.

Bring my total to $1800 in credit for getting rid of most of my game collection (traded about 200 unique games) that I had accumulated over the past 6-7 years. Mostly there were X360 games with some Wii, PS3 and DS games in there.

Now playing: Pokemon Omega Ruby (3DS), Overwatch (PC)

so you averaged a little less than $9 a game? Sounds like a loss to me over the years. I can't imagine you paid for less than $9 for every game you purchased over the years.....

Nevertheless that is a really good haul.

BUT WHEN WILL MADDEN 13 GO UP FOR TRADE IN STORE? IM SO READY

:roll:
you know, not everyone views games as an investment or a flip.

He had games he wasn't gonna play anymore and traded them in. Whatever he paid for them originally is irrelevant.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

Well it is really only a loss if you plan to play the games. It is like any other collectible except these usually go down in value. Getting $700 today for games that will just collect dust is a win in my book. I am trying hard to get past collecting games and just playing them. :)

My post had a question at the end, everything above it was freepost, but I'm glad you responded.

Furthermore every purchase you ever make in life is a type of investment. Every game is included.

I chose to respond in a way that I relate to every time I trade a game in, or anything for that matter.

Anywho, glad you responded

Yes I know. I have that "issue" too. I had it with Pokemon cards, Jordan shoes, and Sonic comics. I just can't shake videogames for the life of me. Like Madden today, I bought 1, won 1, and will get another eventually for 10 due to p/m and rewards and stuff, knowing that eventually the game will drop significantly and I'll trade in it for less than what I paid for it -the sale price.

Oh well I can't help it.

Videogames are my anti-drug

I have no idea what you're talking about. Is "freepost" an excuse to just type anything you want? Cause I'd like in on that scam.

The sushi I had for lunch is not an investment of any kind.

You invested in food to fill your belly, or even your tastebuds. If you weren't satisfied by the value of the product you purchased, you would be upset thus making food an investment.

A freepost is a way to express thought in a way that if not meaningful by any stretch but still expresses thought.

I don't think you understand what the word investment means but I guess there's no helping that now. Time to move on.
