Traded in 7 games for $178.xx. Did receive pur bonuses. I'll rebuy the ones I want with my b2g1 coupon possibly


You're talking the 10% on base TIV, right?

I'm thinking of trading God of War Saga, Sly Cooper, Dead Island and Silent Hill HD Collection. I've already beat GOW 1-3 (and I get origins for free basically), and got the latter 3 for 10 on BF. My backlog is so huge that I'd rather have the credit and I think this should net me $85 base whereas I paid 50 base for them collectively.

Trade it. This type of trade deal brings out the worst in my game collecting addiction. I am looking at over 100 games on my shelf and having a "Come to Jesus" moment over 5-6 games? Take the credit (especially if you are getting 2x what you paid) and eventually you will get back to it. I have so many games to play there is no reason to hold onto some of these.

Thanks OP. Traded in Sly/Alice/Lego Star Wars for $60 credit and picked up 3 $20 PSN cards. Also immediately rebought Sly from Amazon Warehouse for $15.67 because I really liked the 1st one and hadn't gotten to #2 and#3. I'll re-buy Alice at some point and actually play it, but $20 for it at this point is just too good to pass up.

Was also going to trade in FIFA 13 and pick up FIFA 12 from Gamefly for $9.99, but FIFA 13 is still going for at least $35 after shipping/fees on Amazon, so I just posted it there and will take the cash over GS credit.

I got Kinect Sports ultimate for $15 on BF, but for $30 i can't turn that down. I don't use the kinect ever anyways. Same deal with $25 for Sly Collection.

I got black ops 2 on WiiU from TRU B2G1 half off a few days ago but the connections are so shitty because there's all of 1,000 people playing online in the whole world that i'll probably let that go for $40 too.

I'll probably just pay off Devil May Cry for january.

I just opened them up and it made trading them in even harder...that new game smell and look. Thinking of getting these later all broken and dirty makes me want to keep them. :drool:

Had this same moment. I overcame it and traded in 20 games for $411.60. They were all backlogged and/or stuff I didn't see myself revisiting in the next 6-12months, except for some BF purchases and Sears/Kmart/Target clearance purchases that I hadn't even had the chance to open.

Used my $411.60 for a WiiU Deluxe and WiiMote/Nunchuck & NSMBU. I'm hoping it's not a mistake and I get more use out of it than my original wii did back at launch. At the very least this will end up being the console that my son grows up with so I'll take that over some cases collecting dust and just keep my eyes peeled to rebuy the games I really wanted for my collection going forward (it's not like there's a ton of wiiU games and/or new releases for PS3/360 that have my excited save Bioshock and Aliens).

Enjoy this promo and trade in as soon as you can, I remember over summer when they had this with the trade two for $40 promo going and a lot of the games tanked after 3-4 days.

I'm terribly bad with my backlog too, but I've started not buying any game until it hits the $10-$12 range and it's helped a little bit with my backlog, but even moreso with my regret on spending too much on games. I don't think I've had a "regretful" purchase in a long time. I also refuse to buy anything digital unless it's discounted by at least 50%

Heh, I was finishing Lollipop Chainsaw in hopes that Best Buy would have the 100% bonus again soon. Guess it and a few other games are going to Gamestop instead.

Do you take the plastic off when you trade it in? I do. Makes me seem like less of a crazy person, in my head.

Man, My back-log is so big due to BF that i might go ahead and trade Sly in. More than double what i paid for it, that's crazy.

promos don't stack, so the only way that would work is if you got an employee to override it somehow

The store I was at received another shipment today and they are in Stock for direct shipping to your house if they are oos locally.

Man I still can't get over this. I may actually take a ride and see if I can't find some of those Alices at bbv. My best buys don't have anything else worth moving credit for some more wiiu games.

Am I reading this correctly that Assassin Creed is going for 15?


I know !! I only wish this was also for Xbox 360 instead of just for PS3. :cry:
