I bought an Xbox one s used today and the avatar and user name stayed on the machine. I had to set up everything normally though. That normal?

My experience with used consoles is that no one tends to do a good job wiping them, and that the people who trade them in are frequently not attentive to things like removing accounts.

So much drama in the C-A-G... (Snoop Dogg voice)

I just wrote this long ass post while the other thread got nuked lol..

Regardless I turned a $130 trade card into $1085 across 9 stores.. Going to go back for more tomorrow with a better plan, more flips and more PUR Pro accounts (no ID state ftw) but if the values get nuked I'm more than content.

I always feel like I'm being grilled by the FBI when the guy processing my trades tries to make small talk about the games I'm trading and I have to keep up the facade like I'm just a regular customer haha. So many times today I got "What did you think of game X? / How do you like system Y? Are you going to get Z?" I had absolutely no idea what these guys were talking about half the time but I tried to play it off and be as generic as possible lol. Also found it kind of annoying that a lot of the employees were trying so hard to sell me a bunch of useless shit that I had no interest in at all, but I didn't run into any jr detectives so I suppose it's a small price to pay.

Also, don't know if this was mentioned in the FAQ or not, but if you're doing GS to GS trades, be mindful that your trade balance doesn't really reflect the $2000 rolling limit. When I updated my spreadsheet when I got home I was surprised to find I traded in more than 2k worth of stuff even with 1100 in profit, just because I had to keep rolling those trades into other purchases. I thought the 2k limit would have just been 2k on across the trade cards, would have learned that lesson the hard way if I didn't have a second account going. It's my first time doing more than a few hundred bucks so if you're diving in like me be sure to keep track of that.

Thanks again to Blackbeard and all of the helpful contributions to the thread, hopefully there will be some more opportunities tomorrow and through out the weekend. Cheers!

Any Gamestop exclusive versions coming out soon? Already have the COD: WWII Pro edition reserved


I was looking today at what GS has for Forza 7. Seems like they're the only ones giving away the Porsche scale model with preorder. Might be worth paying $12 more than at BB.

Public knowledge or posting of GameStop flips has almost never resulted in flips being fixed immediately or at all aside from normal value drops.

GameStop flips have been a thing for a decade or more. Who was here with the visa vanilla and blockbuster sea monsters, cranium kabooki, and Oblivion goty.

So all you newcomers need to check yourselves and realize that we don't control the flips. You are not an exclusive club. New people aren't going to ruin anything. We should be welcoming and friendly. The only threat to the flips we all love doing is this negative and hateful attitude.

The weird part is that it totally set up normal like it was erased. Did an update and everything and still have someone's else's user name.

Sure, I think sometimes certain members can be a little overbearing, but all we're asking is for people to contribute to the group.  There are plenty of people who are new here and are getting along just fine.  Others, though, are purposely doing things to kill the flow of the threads.

I was there for all of those. I have to correct you on one thing though. It was called "cranium bukkake." It was a honest mistake I'm sure.  :D

They haven't said anything yet, but I expect it to be later this month (that's when PS4 was first available for pre-order)

Some jr detective on the gamestop Reddit is freaking out and they're infighting. Love these weekends so much salt.

The best part is how OP is so up in arms, but everyone else is like "Meh... it helps our numbers."  Some people really do take their job way too seriously.

HAHAHAHHAh it's so funny that the GS reddit is exploding with people taking that seriously, it's hilarious seeing them defend a company like that. I mean, honestly do these guys think that GS isn't making profit out of this?

Word on the street is August sometime, which means that the new :xb1: console I got cheap with the promo who shall not be named will probably end up being mine for good (not interested in just returning it).

 

Ehhh... I don't like the color the bag comes in :)

I think you're referring to the CE, which isn't a GS exclusive (and also long gone).  The LE is the base game plus the expansion pass plus a SteelBook case.
