Traded NHL in for $30 today

I'm not sure that was a good idea, NHL is awesome.

I do still have Fifa and NHL.

I enjoy playing both of them but I keep on losing in Fifa. Unfortunately, I know I'll get tired of it sooner than later. NHL is always good to keep though and I haven't really considered trading that in, especially for $30 and not $35. If I traded in both then I wouldn't have any game to play. I haven't been really playing NHL because I play FIFA a lot more. Whatever, both great games. I'll probably just hold on to Fifa, unless I feel that I can get it for $20 used anytime soon, and I don't think so.

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.

When was the deal for $40 for Borderlands 2, Dead Island GOTY and Far Cry 3?
And how did I miss it?

I just finished Hitman Absolution. Guess I will trade it in for $30 then.
I hate this trend of games becoming shorter and shorter.

Odd question, but what do the dual shock 3 controllers trade in for? Don't really need the controller, but wouldn't mind the game.

Was probably the BF DI for $8 and a combo of PM/$20 preorder for BL2 and FC3 and maybe a RZ cert tossed in for good measure. It wasn't w/o some work.

So these values are still good today? I think I'll run over to GS in a couple hours if so.

No, just take in the case and game, I even took in some that were in empty dvd cases and they took them at full value.

1. This isn't Best Buy

2. Your question doesn't make sense. If they aren't opened, they aren't used. Why would you try to trade a game in that hasn't been opened?


Then Gamestop has been selling used games as new for years.

I went to a BestBuy that had about 12 of these yesterday; thought about flipping some of them but then I thought about how much I hate selling small items on Craigslist. Wound up just buying 1, using some RZ certs, and getting the controller for about $3 after I traded in the Killzone game.

You can sign up for a free membership and still get the deals so why not? At most it will cost you a minute or two of uncomfortable upselling by the cashier.

ugh. I have to compare BB, AZ, and GS trade values and make some trades today.

In case anyone else had the same options from the Gamespot lockins:

gamestop are estimated based on last base trade

game/BB/AZ/GS

360
Madden 32/38.50/36.7
NCAA 24/33/31.80
Halo 4 38.40/35.75/30 +10% base

PS3
B2 24/31.50/30 +10% base

I traded in bl2, dead island goty, and motorstorm for $59.10. I could have had so much more, but really want to play everything else I have at the moment. Picked up Kens Rage and still have $40 in credit.

I just want to buy a extra ps move controller. Is $24.99 the lowest price we have seen? Will it drop to $19.99 eventually in GameStop?

You may be able to find move bundles on clearance at Target or kmart.

Oh. But I actually do not want extra ps eyes because I have one bundle from best buy already.

Went to a Blockbuster I had been to a couple of days ago cause I was nearby and I noticed they had 2 copies of Just Dance 3 and Madden 12 for the Wii. Traded them in to GS for $60 and picked up Sonic All Stars Racing Transformed for the Wii U.:D

I didnt like NHL much at all this year. Broken penalty system, injuries happening all the time in league play, fluke goals, opponent goalie playing like superman....I was glad to get rid of it.
