I think GS may have canceled the last few days of Hitman being guaranteed $30 trade in since the price dropped to $40. Remember in the fine print if a game drops in price then they may not give $30 credit for it.

TooPoor got in on the last day of that trade boost deal and I'm 90% sure Hitman isn't getting a boost anymore.


Yeah I went in today and it's no longer on the list... Oh we'll, thanks anyways guys... Looks like Best Buy is getting this sucker.

If I trade in 6 games will I get an extra $20 or do I have to do like separate transactions or something?

I'm pretty sure as long as each game meets the minimum TIV for the promotion that you will get $10 for each set of 3. In the past when I traded in 9 games at a time during the promo I remember getting a total of $30 extra from the promotion. But always check the values BEFORE you sign. Always.

We can learn as much, if not more, from bad games as we can from good ones.

That's my justification and I'm sticking to it.

What all do you have to bring in with the xbox to get full trade-in for it?

360
power brick + cord
some type of tv hookup (hdmi cable won't work though, i don't think)

basically, everything that will allow the unit to function. hard drive is not required, but can be traded in as a separate item.

Just the info that I needed! Thanks! I've been on the fence about trading in my fat 360 towards a slim for awhile now but I wanted to keep my hdd since I will be getting the 4gb version. So then it's $65+30% on top right?

Yeah I have a fat 360 I need to get rid of, it has just been sitting in my closet for months and months since I got my slim. Should I wipe the HD before I take it in? Haven't had it hooked up in forever. No controller needed in the trade-in?

You need a controller included to trade it in... Unless they changed protocol. Wired or wireless.

When I traded in my ps3 everything was needed, cables and a controller.

Cool, I figured you needed a controller with it. I wonder if they'd accept my wired Black Ops Precision controller with it? I don't ever use the damn thing due to the wire being more annoying than I thought.

Sorry, I never trade in game systems, never really have had the need to because I usually just hand them down. In this case I have a useless system for once, might as well get something for it.

b ops controller will be separate from the system so u won't get full value for the xbox

No worries, I have a couple of extra 1st party controllers lying around, hopefully I can track down the battery compartment for it since I always use battery packs.

I didn't think the 10% applied on console buying or trade in. It is weird they bumped the value of the fat 360, I would have done it with the +$50 promo but I guess that is the whole idea of their strategy :( Still not a bad deal since I bought the system for $100 brand new at Walmart 3 years ago.

Yeah not a bad deal but with that +50% promo the deal becomes even better somewhat. I guess I'll be heading to GS tomorrow for a shiny new slim.

it may be a stupid question, but is the 50% only for the console or all other items also in the same trade in?

Thanks again JP for keeping this thread updated! This thread was one of the main reasons I stopped lurking this site to help contribute :D

Anyways, did anyone else's gamestop run a trade 3 games get a $59.99 game free? One near my house was having one from 12/15-12/20. I wish I would've know before cause I would've definitely looked around to get some games cheap.
