Thank you, Cheapy. Your response is quick and reasonable. Hopefully all of us can do our part to keep our community together rather than become toxic.

I'm assuming that you would need to trade in a controller to get this price for there Xbox....


Yes....

Excellent response and decision. Mods do need respect of course, but respect is earned and can also be lost.


I understand that this is his site, his baby, his business. I completely respect how he wants to run it. I equally respect his decision on the reversal of the bannings. I, however, have to disagree on the slap on the wrist stop being mean response. This all started by the individual that has the responsibility to maintain order. He initiated all controversy using his platform and privileges as a weapon and it invited the response he got, giving him more reason to use that power.

Although it's all in the past id like to think that he had more than just a little culpability as to why GameStop changed procedures here and there.

Alas, all is in the past so I'll leave it there. Im just hopeful that the chaos is over

I spoke to thor about the incident and I've decided to unban the affected users. Mistakes were made by thor, and in this case there were extenuating circumstances. It would be great if users didn't attack our mods (and other members too) but we recognize that this comes with the territory and we sometimes need to be able to turn the other cheek. Thor and I had a good discussion about this and he won't be making the same mistakes again. It would be awesome if we all could be a little nicer to each other.

tl:dr we are sorry for the bannings and they are reversed. please don't attack the mods.

Have you looked into adding more mods? Specifically ones that frequent the deal section more amd don't come in once in a blue moon and start banning people. I get he's a mod but if anyone else posted with so little info, they would get shit too. Kyle and BB would be good candidates. Sure they have sarcastic comments here and there, but many of us do, and they look out for the community. Those are my 2 cents.

Can't we just start a gofund to get Wario64 back? Honestly not to be a dick but these problems didn't exist when he was running the deals...and I have a hard time forgiving abuse of power myself...

Edit: I also support BB and Kyle becoming mods. They have helped the community 100x more than you know who...just saying.

how would this work? do they have it in stock or will take place an order and you have to wait 1-2 weeks to go pick it up after the trade in?

I believe "all" Gamestops are suppose to be getting a small batch of standalone Switches in within the next few days. Of course Gamestop is making a huge deal about it. My local store is getting 5 units. I think you just have to be lucky and be at the store after they arrive.

 

I don't think it works with an online order. Unless you can get one online and do a return / rebuy with your trade in-store.

From the CAG rules page...

"You may not engage in any behavior that interferes with the operation of CAG or its enjoyment by other users."

Does this include unreasonable bannings?

I'm back from the banned see! The water was a little salty. Thanks Cheapy for jumping in and pulling me out! And thanks community for pointing out I was lost at sea. Never will I ever bring up homophones again. In on 2 for the deal. Supposed tiered trade coming soon.

Don't know why this was edited to cut out my edit about Splatoon 2, but that's a great game. Everyone should get it with the credit they get from this awesome deal.

Still, was that it's not $150 for every Xbone. Just that One S.


No its $150 for any XB1. VCR or Slim.

It's cool that brotherly love won the day, but the current GS ad thread remains blacklisted and banned.

I am not sure what it is either way but even the PS4 Pro and X1S 2TB are currently less than this offer, we really need someone to try it out before anything is set in stone.

tbh if those values are for any Xone and any 3DS, I can dump my originals for a Switch and just resell that, even below MSRP it would get me more than I could sell either of those for these days

So why did all these banning occur? Why is Blackbeard banned? Can anyone let me know.

Someone earlier posted the link on the GS site, jackass.

No wonder people don't feel comfortable posting on CAG anymore. If you're not in the cool kids club then F off is the attitude around here anymore.

So when it turns out that 'up to' again means only the PS4 Pro gets $200, you'll be shooting me an apology?

The up to means as long as no refurb fee is needed & all components are included, you get the stated amount. Try again troll.

Keen is most likely not wrong. Previous promotions like this that mention "Up to xxx credit" still have different values for the same family of systems. The last one was a couple of months ago, and the PS4 Pro was the only model that got full value - other PS4's got less. I'm as hopeful as anyone that the original PS4 gets the full $200, but I never take Gamestop at their word :)

 

Hopefully someone can confirm once Gamestop actually has stock available.

Will you apologize to him when it turns out he's right?
