IIRC, the last time that happened, all traces of promo disappeared from the website too.


Nope, website was still up and a few of the games were getting less than what was listed on the promo. This was probably like 2 months ago

Also I think it's hilarious all the people in here ripping on Beats headphones and telling him he's making a terrible purchase. Maybe they aren't the best headphones, but they are still very good and have brand name appeal. Same reason people buy Apple products. If he really wants to buy them, why do you care so much? It's not your money.


I don't think anyone would give a crap if he used $2 memorex brand headphones. Or if he used custom made $2000 ones.

The point is that beats are wildly overpriced for what you get. And that's pretty much the antithesis of what CAG is all about.

This. I have a pair of Beats and love them. Straight Edge you will love those headphones.


OT: I think I am going to have to unload a few more games now. The values are too tempting.

Thanks for the heads up on the Killzone triple-pack. Doesn't really matter to me if the controller is not up to standards, as it'll just be a back-up.

It's an official DS3 controller; what standards would it be failing?

Just got the KZ Trilogy/DS3 pack for $20 (after $20 in RZ certs). Went and traded in the game (discs only...i want to keep the case for some reason) for $25. I also traded a shitty N64 for New Super Mario Bros DS and Adventure Island 3 for NES, and traded in NSMB for $20. Now i have a total of $340 in credit. I'll be getting the Wii U soon. I hope something like this arises when the PS4/Orbis comes out so I can get one of those early on.

According to a few posts, it seems to not hold up to everyday abuse as well as the other available colors. I would've called BS, but I definitely saw at least two posts about it.

I also agree. I have a pair of Beats, but straight edge is getting this with credit which he probably got a ton for by doing flips. The guy is getting an A++ deal, great way to dump credit for something you want.

I noticed NHL 13 for PS3 is not included in the increase but Xbox 360 is, anything I should know? I was thinking of buying it on PS3.

Today I finally got around to trading in God of War Saga for $20 and Need for Speed Most Wanted for $30. Part of me wants to go to Blockbuster to see of I can flip anything, but I don't know if it's worth the effort. You guys think it's worth it, especially this far into the TIV bump?

Did some trading:
Forza Horizon - $36.80
Madden 13 - $36.70
AC 3 - $37.00
Sly Collection - $26.10
Killzone Trilogy - $26.10
Alice Madness Returns - $20.90

Then:
Peggle Dual Shot - $6.09
Red Dead Redemption - $8.83
Street Fighter X Tekken - $8.83
(Got the $10 trade bonus for 3 games)
Dual Shock 3 - $24.20

In total with PowerUp 10% I left with $231.55

Was going to walk away with a Vita AC Bundle, dude thought they had one left, they didn't. I walked away with Persona 4 and $188.56. Gunna check a GameStop he said has one, that's about a 15 minute drive tomorrow. If not, I'll pick up the Black Ops bundle, return Persona and trade in Black Ops Vita towards Persona again. Also, my Killzone Trilogy controller bundle is on it's way (only paid $10 with BB reward coupons), and going to pick Sly Collection again from Newegg for $16.

Whoa...I'm sitting on two extras that have been used and abused and I've upgraded. Do they test them instore or just take em? Mine work, but act a little funky, at least to me. I also noticed on their website that they take YLOD ps3s...has anyone tried to turn one in?

Just wait until their sale of controllers end. Right now they have new ones for $45 and thats why the tiv went down.

I would think that's about as high as they would get, maybe $25? As for testing them, the guy just tested out the buttons a little bit for me.

I've traded several controllers in and they just look at it. They don't test them or anything.

Just so you know the cod game is a download code, not the game so no trading it. Be sure to find the AC bundle!

Don't think he made it up. It appears that some bundles also included a download voucher.
