Huh I payed $35 for AC3 a few weeks ago, maybe I should try and finish it quick and trade it in for a tax net loss.

Does anyone know how street pass records and DLC work with NSMB2? If I traded it in now and repurchased it at a later date, would all my content still be there? I'm so annoyed that save games are tied to cartridges and not the system memory like every other fucking platform with no easy way to back them up or transfer between systems or game copies.

Dang... really wish Just Cause 2 for PS3 was listed. I bought that for $15 a few months back and its still just sitting on my shelf. Would break even, but at least it'd clear some clutter.

I swing by Best Buy/Kmart for a few copies of Portal 2, though. Anarchy Reigns for $20 and some change to spare sounds good to me.

You have to actually go to the store and trade it and be a PUR member. It's not gonna pull up on their computer by doing a manual search for it.

Can anyone find any logical reason why the 360 version of Borderlands 2 isn't on this list? :(


They probably have enough stock of it so no need for incentive. That's why games drop off midway.

If you loaded up on BF, you're making a killing now. Had I a chance to play the games I got, I'd be heading to GS today.

I have a PUR membership but it's the basic one, I basically just give them my phone number but don't get any deals (I.E I bought a game for $9.99, but for "Pro" members it was $8.99)

Would I still get the the same trade in value as listed or lower because I am not "Pro" member?

I saw a post earlier indicating that trading in 3 or more games might trigger the tiered promo instead of this one, so I asked the dude. He reminded me that I'll always get the deal that gives me the highest value, and he was right. 7 games, $188.90 (PUR Pro). Grabbed a couple $50 Steam codes to prepare myself for a year-end blowout on PC games.

Thanks OP!!!!! :D

Ni No Kuni. Pay it off, sell the steelbook in February if you want


Hmm, studio ghibli, the game? Can't tell if worst idea ever or totally brilliant. Then again, I remember thinking that kingdom hearts would be the worst game ever (boy was I wrong).

On topic, tempted to go scrounge up some Alice games or something. Flipping $10 into a $20 PSN card or just more credit is very, very tempting.

I took alice in. I got it on pc and doubt I'll play it again anyways. I am sure I will find it cheaper later since I all ready got and redeemed the code for buying it new for the original. If I ever see it used for under 10 then I'll get it again on 360.

I never traded to GS before, do they give you store credit or is it cash for trades?

Yes, it is the case. My email was for Sly collection. Thing is, they should know I had already traded that one back in to them earlier. However, I don't think I bought anything else on the list from them so they had to use something I guess.


It looks like the power up rewards site is just generating results from your Games Library (mines was for Tales of Graces F).
If that game is still on your "have" list then it probably doesn't know that you had already traded it in.

I still have an extra copy of The Sly Collection from Walmart Black Friday.
Now I'm deciding what to do, return back to Walmart for $10 cash or get $25 credit at Gamestop.

Depends on the store, a lot of stores in my area don't do cash anymore just credit. But for pretty much any promo unless stated otherwise, they will only work with store credit. So for cash you would only get the basic trade in values.

Damn, traded in LBP Karting for $25.50, Killzone Trilogy for 16.50, Dead Island GOTY for $15, all after the 50% bonus. With a couple dollars here and there could have gotten $20 more in credit if I waited.

Dammit, oh well, guess I can't be a chooser for extra credit. Thanks!

How much does PUR cost to join?

I buy all my games at best buy, their prices are almost always better and they pricematch anything that isnt... last time I bought a game at gamestop was like 8 or 9 years ago.

2: need for speed most wanted (its better the hot persuit one but eventually i will get this game for around $15)

3: assasins creed (meh)

4: ultimate marvel vs capcom (street frighter x tekken its much better)

5: portal 2 (i went to kmart before gamestop and buy it for 10.80 with tax and got $21 for it!)

so i have $115.60 in my account!... ok, i dont like fps shooters at all, when i bought portal 2 i opened and it included a download code for mac or pc... if you want the code, i will give it to the person who pm me first... =)

btw. when i bought portal 2 at kmart they printed a coupon that will gime me $10 in points next time i spend $35 or more... not bad :D

I don't know if this has already been mention( it probably has) but you only get the 10% for Pro on the base value and not the listed values in the OP. For instance, I got the 20 for Assassins Creed Liberation, but it's base was $11 so my total was $21.10. For Kinect Sports Ultimate I got $31.40 and not $33, as the base is $14. So for those of you simply adding 10% to the total of the OP prices, you're gonna get a little less.

The GOTY edition is trading for 20 or 25 depending on which version you have
