Really quick question. I bought a used game, but did not like it. For some reason I lost my receipt. If I go back to the store I purchased it from with my powerup card, will they be able to give me store credit? Thanks for any info!

From my experience if it's within 7 days they can look it up with your powerup card and will give you store credit. Worked for me but as always YMMV you may get an asshole.

Yeah it is within the 7 days. I just can't seem to be where it went. It is not my usual store, but I know a few nice people there.

Any way I can get the extra 30% trade in that I'm owed?
Went to GS & traded in MW3 $(23) & portal 2 $(12) but they said the 30% is only towards Max Payne 3. I preordered ghost recon future soldier & when I asked about the 30% extra they said it had expired. I look it up on the website when I get home & the offer is still live.
so will they fix it or not, any ideas?


Same thing happen to me earlier this year. Fucking asshole actually said he applied the bonus too when he didn't. :twisted:
Depends if the stores still has the promo barcode in thats store system. For some reason when I return after this happen the promo wasn't in their system so I didn't get the difference.

That's the plan ;)

I can't really compare...it's much like the 1st game except different story.
Except I actually finished Prototype 2...I think I only played half way through Prototype.
I kind of like the way they did their cut scenes though.

It's really repetitive either way.
Hunt/chase this guy, sneak into this lab under disguise, defeat these monsters/squad units, collect these files in a certain amount of time.

The challenges and events from the Radnet thing kills a few hours completing them/trying for gold.

Same with hunting blackboxes/lairs/squad units for upgrades.

I just can't make myself play it again to get my last two achievements...which sucks.

Don't get me wrong, it's entertaining wrecking the shit out of military bases but I could only play like 3 hours tops every other day.

Can't give an extra amount because the employees dont know if it's broken or something is wrong with it, but their estimation is right. You're looking at about $80-90 after promo.

As for warranty sticker being removed, if they check for it (which they should), they won't be able to take it in for trade.


MS reseals any console they repair so if that's the case, then it should be ok.

Don't know if you're dead-set on trading it in to GS, but Best Buy is currently giving you a base $18 for Black Ops on PS3. There's also a 50% bonus with every trade-in, and the extra 10% if you're Unlocked. Just in case you didn't know.

Ugh, my ethernet port on my old elite has finally crapped out apparently and is no longer able to read cables inside it.

*yes I have tried other things it is the port*

I traded in my second 360 not too long ago for $150 with that awesome promo but now am looking at only $58.50 for one (with the 30% current promo)...

This is very disheartening. Any better ideas?

How does the Power Trade toward DLC work? DO i need to know the games i want prior to going or do they have some sort of list i can look at? Or better yet, does that work for PSN cards lol?

Also, does anyone know TIV for Starhawk? Trying to recoup as much as i can and since there is some stuff on PSN that i could use...

Dark Souls (PS3)- $10

Pretty disappointed with that since I needed around 15 and was expecting that but the last reported one was almost 2 months ago so I guess I shouldn't be shocked.

Black Ops for both consoles dropped to $15 in Best Buy though...I guess too many people traded in their copies.

I haven't had the need to try this myself, and as result I don't know if it will work or not but would the xbox wifi network adapter add on solve the problem, since it routes the data through the USB connection?....While it looks like gamestop is still charging a fortune for them, you could buy a used one from them to test to see if this approach works or not and then return if it doesn't work

No I am basing it off of the $45 TIV listed here and the bonus 30% then.

And about the wireless adapter, I thought about that but realistically would rather just get a new console at that point than pay to just get the adapter. Plus as of right now I have no use for wireless in my apartment and so it isn't even set up.

Just traded my 360 in and got $70.00 base and a extra $21.00 for the promo. It was the old fat white version with a wireless controller. Thats not a bad amount of money IMO.

Also traded in
Wireless adaptor G. $18
512 mb memory card. $1

These 'might' get you the 30% bonus, since they are DLC:

http://www.gamestop....ption-dlc/84612

When I got some cheap DLC, as the helpful people in this thread mentioned, I said "I'd like to put this trade towards 'enter DLC name' downloadable content." And, my trade in credit went up.
