Supposedly it will be limited run on these (like Final Fantasy white ones in Japan). It was only available in Japan in red color so for GOW:A release SOE is bringing it State side. $350 is still too rich for my blood. I will wait and see how limited the run is. Still nice looking.

It can be updated that the base trade-in value for the Xbox 360 fat (w/ wireless controller) is now $40. So that is $90 (after the $50 promo) or $115 (after the trade-in promo towards the white PS3).

Thanks for the update on this. With the value dropping so much over the past couple weeks, I'm thinking I should just keep it as a spare unit or put it in the family room to stream vids.

Anyone know how Gamestop handles PS3 trade ins without the warranty sticker? I've had mine serviced and it has a warranty sticker from the repair shop on the side. Will they take these at all?

They shouldn't, YMMV if they check it though. But if there's a big independent dealers sticker on it I would think they would catch it.

Does anyone know if gamestop accepts defective ipods like they do consoles?

I have a 160 gig classic that won't power up and an nano 6th generation that has a stuck volume button on top, you can still change the volume but have to do it manually through the ipod settings or itunes.

No to the one that won't power up, not sure about the 2nd one, but if they do take it you may be at the bottom of the 4 rankings GS takes in those devices.

Does the bonus 10% for power up pro stack with the 2 4 6 deal? Have six games I wanna trade, so might I get 40% bonus?

With the upcoming 2/20 playstation event... And the deal on the console trade in ends in 2/17 im having doubts if $299 white bundle is worth it still... My gut tells me that if ever a ps4 announcement is coming... A console price drop is just around the corner aswell. Waaaahhhh! My slim is slowly dying already (blu ray failure) and i want to replace it soon. Decision! Decision!

It is pretty unlikely a specific date or price info will be announced at the upcoming event and even if the price on the PS3 drops in the near term, it is not going be more than $50. Given how hard up Sony is for cash at the moment, it might only be $20-$30 (ie, the entry level PS3 becomes $229 once they end that uncharted 3 bundle).

And the $75 trade promo for the white PS3 is a pretty good bonus and GS is an easy way to unload a dying unit. And any price drop will also lower the trade in value of your current PS3 as well, there isn't a incentive to wait if you know you want to unload your current PS3. Assuming the year of PS+ is worth something to you, I'd say go for it. Big hard drive, good looking unit (I hate how dust is super visible in the grooves of the black super slim), lower cash out of pocket transaction thanks to the $75 trade promotion. Enjoy your new PS3 for two years and then pick up a cheaper, probably better built PS4 that actually has more than one or two games you want to play on it.

Depends on the GA. Some will tell you they have to put the entirety towards a game (and the excess goes on your powerful card), others just do the $5.

Any idea if you can use this coupon toward an existing preorder? I preordered Injustice a few weeks ago and I've been waiting for a decent promo to start building credit to pay off the ridiculous special edition that I couldn't help but get.
