I just traded in a DS3 controller. The guy turned it on to make sure it worked, then pushed all the buttons, then swirled the sticks a bit. He also looked at the barcode on the back, not sure why though. Overall, he didn't do a great job of testing it, just went through the motions.


The last 4 times I have traded in a DS3, all they did was make sure the light on the top of the controller lighted up. But then again I traded in a 80gb PS3 on BF and they never hooked it up or anything.

Is this still happening? The site loads only as mobile for me so the link from the OP doesn't show anything.

It does hold up to abuse or it doesn't? Not sure if you're referring to going through several camoflauge controllers or other dualshock 3s. Because if the camoflauge has reliability issues I'll just trade it in and profit instead and recommend others do too.


My ps3 controller problems came before the newer models with the blue packaging. Haven't had a problem, but I did buy them all at best buy, previously through amazon. I know Sony has several factories producing different models of the controller, so it could of just been a bad batch or the early ones were poorly tested/engineered. However, I do have two camos no issues whatsoever, except they have bigger gaps in the middle of the snaps then others.

hmm is there a limit to how many of the same game we can trade-in?
and how much credit we can use for an order?

EDIT: anyone had luck trading their copy of the PSV Bundle AC Liberation? -considering it's just the card without the box and everything-

Oh my.

I can't wait to read an entire thread about people bragging about all their flips.


Then leave the thread. You know what the trade in values are. Someone in the comments isn't going to post some deal you won't want to miss. If you dont want to hear people talk don't read the comments

Yeah just give them the box and disc. You can be a douche and keep the box if you wanted.

AC: Liberation Vita I mean since it came in a bundle.

nice.. hmm hope it's worth trading in my AC:Liberation...
doubt i'll have time to play it before the price drops.. and i prefer it in a proper casing anyway..

can we put all the in-store credit we have in one order or is there a limit?

If there's a limit, it's something extremely high since I've received $240 credit in a single transaction.

$470 is certainly not the limit, at least when I was doing BBV > GS > BBV flips a few years ago.

There are no shortcuts. No do-overs. What happened, happened. Trust me. I know. All of this matters.
