Prices seem fair for some and others seem like a lowball. I'd be more interested to how they plan on selling them?

Hmmm... 30.80 for LoZ: Skyward Sword is pretty good.

Thief on PS4 is $8 less than what GS gives for it. Much like BB it's going to be hit or miss if WM has better base TIV than GS, but problem is Walmart won't do promotions like BB does to make up for any differences.

 

And only $20 less than what Walmart is giving for the Xone version.

I wonder how they come up with these values considering the odd number of cents given. Searched some older games that would get a dollar or less at GS/BB and it says I could get a couple dollars more at Walmart. There could be some gems for older games and hopefully they have random games with good values like Best Buy used to have. I miss the times of going to Gamestop on a Sunday morning and flipping random used games to Best Buy for big profits.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't remember SD killing Half.com, TRU, etc. All CAGs doing.

Here's the issues WM has to overcome:

 

No cash- lots of GS's trades come from people wanting cash, one of the reasons Target, BB, and TRU trade programs didn't take off. Argument can be made that WM GC is as good as cash, but isn't a Target one as well? Lots of those cash trades are for gas money (yes GS has Shell GC but not all areas have Shell stations and many cash trades are under $25.)

 

Actually selling the games they take in- You have to make money by selling the games taken in. How many times has the used price of a game at BB been more than the new cost? How about the selection of used games at TRU or Target? Also no rewards program at Walmart.

 

Condition of the games- GS will take any game in as long as it's not cracked. How will WM handle that? Will they have a return policy, unlike their current used game sales where there's no returns? GS's return policy is one of the best for used games (7 day satisfaction, 30 days defective.)

 

Pricing the TIV correctly- What happens if Walmart gives stupid amounts of credit for games they won't be able to resell to profit from? What if GS values are greater, as they generally are than BB's outside of BB's 100% bonus weeks?

 

Employee education- Yeah there's lots of bad GS locations, but even the bad GS's are generally better than Walmart. I've tried to buy stuff at WM in Electronics and just get blank stares. Also what about games w/o serial numbers or games with special serial numbers that are a retailer exclusive like the Target exclusive Square Enix Steelbook games? With as few staffers as WM puts in Electronics, can you imagine the holdups when trades are introduced?

 

Just some things to think about before all of CAG declares GS dead.

You do have a point.  Unless they have a dedicated trading center/employees who know what the hell they are doing I am pretty sure you are going to get an employee who says , "We don't take this game..." even though it is on the web site but because it has a different sku they are going to reject it.

I'm curious what the trade limit per item is - if any. I didn't see any listed and I was able to add 4 of the same item and it went through as a pending trade.

 

FYI - there doesn't appear to be a way to cancel a submitted trade. It also must be shipped within 10 days. Shipping is done via FedEx.

I didn't think TRU was discussed that much here. Gamers Factory who handled the trades went out of business. Some of the trade in values they and were awesome like $12.25 for Steel Diver when it was $5 at Best Buy. They also didn't advertise it well and almost every time I went to trade games at TRU the person at customer service had no idea how to process the trade.

 

If Mario Kart DS didn't have the save file tied to the cartridge, I would get rid of it for $23 and rebuy it later

I don't see myself coming here very often since Walmart is 20 minutes away from me but maybe the right TIV would give me a reason to go.

Duke Nukem was epic. Forget the calculation ATM, but things went downhill fast after that.

$375 for a PS4 is pretty outstanding considering they are paying for shipping too!

That's irrelevant. My point was/is most of the epic trades never made it to the masses at SD so why put any blame on them?

I forgot about that, I think it was trading in for almost $16.

Does Wal-Mart carry Amazon gift cards?  If so, I might take advantage of this instead of dealing with eBay.

I think the better bet is how many people going to be in line at 8am next Wednesday at electronic desk to take advantage? And the odds the person working that day going to be huh we don't do trade ins
