You sure they're not just trade-ins?

Dunno about it, but this store has 3 more copies of Injustice Ultimate, and 2 more Final Fantasy XII steelbook in their shelf. Is any possibility that 7 random people trade ins these copies? Also, I checked the other copies, and all of them still have their inserts.

New to this thread.  What does it mean when they convert them to pre owned?

At some point after release, Gamestop will take their new stock of a game and convert them over to pre-owned in their system. No matter what, that game will automatically ring up at the pre-owned price. Sometimes they do this to clearance them out. Other times, they do it to jack the price up above MSRP.

 

Eventually, they even do it with Collector's Editions so even the Collector's Edition will ring up at the pre-owned price. Sometimes employess keep or throw away the bonus stuff that comes with the CE, but if you time it right or have cool employees, you can pick up the whole collector's edition (albeit opened) for the preowned price.

Does gamestop still do the birthday coupon where you get 20% off a preowned title? Haven't seen it around here in a while.

Or did they finally make it single use?

It's been single use for about 2 years I think. Someone can correct me if I am wrong. It was a sad day in CAG history. Based on all the birthdays I had due to those coupons, I should be at least 100

Same with HW2 Ultimate and MEA Deluxe. Good finds, but these aren't conversions.

The Overwatch CE seems to be a definite conversion though. I keep getting an error every time I try to search for the CE on the site.  Really wish I checked stock on it in local stores before it converted.

Bummer! I would always find great preowned deals on niche games because of this lol. Oh well. It was good while it lasted.

I think someone in that store just fucked up and labeled new items as used.

Pro tip: even if you can't find it in your state, search 10001.  Most likely it'll show up there if it hasn't been converted.

Sorry for the off topic post but I got an extra B2G1 pre-owned coupon at GS. This works as every 3 items purchased, it will have the promo in effect. PM if you wanted to trade for anything.

Funny thing was they sent me 3 of these coupons!

I noticed Yoku's island express for the Switch appears to have converted. I checked earlier this week and every store near me had a new copy, zero preowned. 

 

Now those are all pre-owned copies

Noticed the demo in the eshop the other day and tried it out, it was pretty fun. A platformer with pinball elements. Try the demo.

PS4 and XB1 versions of Yoku's Island Express also converted to used.  You can find them in this link:

I randomly checked a few other games and noticed Moss (PS4) was converted to used also, at $24.99:

Radial G: Racing Revolved (PS4) also appears to have been converted ($9.99):

There probably were a bunch others too as I was just checking random titles.
