If the game is opened and the Gamestop doesn't take it for whatever reason (says subject to manager approval), it can't be returned back to MS store.


Ummm....are you new to trading games in? You're more likely to get denied if the game is sealed. If you're that worried about not being able to trade in 2 games that are pretty new and on the list posted, you should probably just not do it.

Good luck. Everybody will be vying for it. Knowing gamestop, you will probably have to pre-order it.

You need to use your powerup rewards card to get the promotion.

That's why I asked the questions. I always get better resale value in CL or ebay but GS is offering prices > what I paid so I'm trying it. Gamestop could deny if they have too much inventory for instance even if the game was virtually brand new. I don't know. I don't use Gamestop. Why the attitude?

IIRC MS store doesn't do returns on video games. I bought DMC collection on Black Friday and it said there were no returns allowed.

They take nothing sealed, saw some random black guys tried to trade in some sealed wii accessories a few wks back, funny thing is they weren't even 18! Most likely stolen

Traded in
PS3 AC3 -Disc Only- for $35
Vita AC: Liberation -Card only- for $20

pretty good :D


Why are your local gamestop staff very kind? For my game stops, if it is disc only, the value must decrease at least 5 bucks.

I got lucky on my games with no case or manual. I'm assuming because I go there often and their employees recognize me.

Thanks for the link. It's not a sticky and I never opened that thread--again, don't use Gamestop, but saw this deal so giving it a try. If someone just pointed to it (as you did), it would also save a lot of posts, no? Or just ignore the question if people think it's too newbie instead of arguing about the validity of the question and go round and round. Every thread will have newbie question. Can we just end it there?

I just got a free month of gamefly so I'm planning on trading in Dead Island and GOW Saga tomorrow, hopefully the promo will still be active.

Values are still intact for most games (didn't trade or ask for all of them, so I can't confirm all games) as of tonight. I expect a sharp drop after Sunday though.

I thought I was hooked on Dead Island goty however I just opened and started playing RDRGOTY. RDR is in my list of top 5 games ever now.

I still have BL2 sealed, but will probably trade it, dead island goty, and something else for ME trilogy on ps3 or far cry 3. I only paid about. $40 for those 3, so it's a win win.

Just traded Little Big Planet Kart and Sly Collection for $55 total.

Awesome promo!

I traded in (all PS3):

Hitman Absolution $31.50

Batman Arkham City GOTY $26.10

Killzone Trilogy $26.00

God Of War Saga $20.90

*fyi* thats more than I paid when i bought them new for all but Hitman. I've traded in sealed and duplicate copies of games before with no problem whatsoever.

I got the typical D-Bag gamestop employee. He was training a new guy, seemed like second day but first trade.

He was visibly agitated when I asked something before he presented the option to me. Didnt even try to ask about their used ps3s or any ideas on upcoming promos or anything.

Do your job, and quit whining.

Did you beat Liberation, or just get tired of it? I'm tempted to dump mine while I can, because I feel like I'll end up losing interest like I have with all of the other AC games. However, I could be wrong and end up enjoying it.

Traded NHL in for $30 today, no issues. While browsing the other games in the store I came across a "new" copy of Hitman Absolution with the "Only at Walmart!" bonus content on it...

I just got my issue in the mail with the expiration notice on it. not sure if im going to renew with them this time. ive been having a better time with best buy and there promos and preorder deals as of the past year. plus the service at my store is top notch. ive become good friends with a couple of managers there now, something that would not happen at gamestop because im not being shoved with stuff and things i dont need or want.
Visualize my mind... :whee:
