Thanks. If you have elite then the preowned version with Elite discount + CAG16 will be cheaper than $20 new by about $1.20. good flip to amazon


Too bad I pay tax online with trade credit purchases.

Everyone does. If you use the mobile app, it'll show the pre-tax total, but once you hit Place Order, you'll be charged tax. New and used will end up being around the same price.

Yeah tax bites for those that don't have to pay it in store. I have to pay tax in store regardless, so pre-owned online is better for me.

Word of advice - Don't try to trade in any retro consoles with anything but a standard AV cable. Apparently, they have no idea how S-Video or RF adapters work and just consider them "broken AV cables."

 

This graders comments on one of the Dreamcasts I traded in was especially entertaining - "This dinosaur of an av cable would not function."

:xb1: No Man's Sky trades for $25.xx currently. 

Good mover from GS, especially since it's B1G1 50% off on preowned today.  2 used copies is enough to get free shipping on the always-stellar GS website.

 

Edit: aand gone. GJ lurkers.

Do you think amazon would accept a PS3 with a no name brand PS3 controller?

Unlikely.  Unless it's one of those fake dualshock imitations, in which case they probably wouldn't notice.

They take disc-only games if it's a standard edition listing.  They usually only reject if it's a LE/CE listing, in which case it needs to have everything.

 

If I send in a disc only game I usually just send in a blue ps4 case with no cover art.  Haven't had that rejected once.

I once set a whole set of games in slim jewel cases. All got accepted.

 

Sadly, I forgot to submit my trade-in order for the trilogy, so the deal is gone for me.

$48. Also, it looks like they killed a bunch of trade ins. They had a bunch of consoles and other stuff with (renewed) in the title that had pretty high trade values (ie: $63 for an OG Xbox, $60 for a PS2, etc.) and they're all unavailable now.

From my understanding, the games all come in a steelbook. If they don't come with it, Idk if I would bother trading it in.

I got the Dark Souls Trilogy without the steelbook.  :wall:

EDIT: They have an acceptable listing for sale. It mentions that it may be missing the packaging. It looks like it's just the steelbook and the games. It has no inserts. They might accept my trade but YMMV

Yeah I'm not familiar with the trilogy but in that case I wouldn't consider it a standard edition.  Who knows what the graders will consider it to be

Got one with and one without.  Sent in disks only and we'll see.  I also wouldn't consider it an SE/LE so keeping my fingers crossed.

Just my luck. The second copy of DS Trilogy doesn't have the steelbook.

Looks like almost all games are not eligible for trade in now- wonder if they’re killing this program or just a glitch?

My Dark Souls Trilogy with generic case was rejected. Bummer. Anyone get theirs accepted? Now I have to hope it gets here in time to return it. Don't lose your packing slips.

Sorry to heard that.  Isn't the return period 7 days?

You do realize the program is intended to trade in unwanted games you no longer play, right? Not to flip. I hope your game comes a day late so it's no longer eligible for return. Would teach a valuable lesson on morals, at the very least.

Who pissed in your cornflakes

We do what they allow us to do. Go speak your morals to those that will listen. Thanks for sharing your opinion. Bye

Also, Tattler is a great name that I wish somebody more agreeable picked up first.

A former banned cag who keeps making alt accounts from time to time for a lack of anything better to do.  I'm surprised he hasn't yet gotten to the point where he calls himself a legend.
