There were conversions on 7/3

 

So far the only things I've seen are Ouya controllers (went from $16.97 -> $29.99) and some headsets.

They are probably throwing the boxes away.  One of mine did that with the Titanfall CE.

 

They can't actually create skus for the statues afaik.

I've seen a few stores display the statues by themselves, but they include the entire package if purchased.

Yeah, seen this too. They have a display case for statues, I saw the Far Cry 4 statue and it had a sticker for the Far Cry 4 CE on it so it seems to be an attempt to sell old CEs by letting you see the statue

On Friday I noticed about 10 different headsets (including the offical XB1 & PS4 ones) that were being converted to used.  Sadly they were doing the thing like with the GTA V headset where it got its own sku so they were all still $60-$80.

Just noticed a sealed call of duty ghosts prestige editions at one of the local gamestops. I remember in this thread someone reported that all versions were converted, or were it specific ones. Could go buy it for the season pass and the cheap camera :D

None were converted.  That was a false alarm.

 

It appears that Falling Skies for both PS3 and 360 was converted on 7/2

Two more possible conversions:

 

Metal Gear Solid: The Legacy Collection for PS3. No stores in 100 miles have it and one local store had 5 copies on the shelf.

 

Castlevania Lords of Shadow Collection for PS3. No stores in 100 miles have it. For this one it's the same SKU as regular Castlevania: Lords of Shadow. The disc is just the Lords of Shadow disc and the extra content is DLC. Included is DLC #1 - Reverie, SLC #2 - Resurrection, Castlevania Lords of Shadow 2 Demo and the remake of the 3DS Lords of Shadow Mirror of Fate HD. Mirror of Fate is $14.99 on PSN and Lords of Shadow is $9.99 used at GameStop, so if you get one with an unused code it's a good deal.

A few weeks ago I noticed all the Ouya controllers disappear from the locator.  It appears they converted to used, however now not only are they no longer searchable on the website, they went from gathering dust at $17, to $30 used.

Yeah, it was a couple weeks ago.  I had posted about it in the Amazon trade in thread but forgot to mention it in here.

Be warned the codes with this are on the back of the instruction manual.

Looks like Bravely Default for 3DS was converted, and GS changed the used price on it to 39.99.

It looks like the 360/PS3 versions of Destiny Ghost Edition may have converted.  They were taken completely off the website.

 

Also, if anyone is looking for a Dead Island Riptide Rigor Edition, shoot me a PM.  I picked up a PS3 one last week.

More people on playstation 3...it's the best in the series but do you really need to ask about a $3 game...

I honestly like bf4 more...I missed a couple maps I can't name other than metro but that put into 4...if I were you I'd go for the newer one which is $15-20 on next gen so I can see $10 happening for you...regardless they are both a ton of fun and the launch issues are ironed out

I think Far Cry 4 Kyrat Edition may have converted for PS3 and 360.

I think Far Cry 4 Kyrat Edition may have converted for PS3 and 360.

The pre-owned version of FC4 for :360: and :ps3: are at mysteriously high prices, so probably so. Newegg was kind to me and others recently with the Kyrat Edition, so GS can keep theirs. :)
