Does GS accept a 3DS with a cracked screen? I bet the refurb fee is significant. I ask because a pawn store near me has a 3ds with a cracked screen for $15. It turns on but the upper screen is 80% Fuck ed.


I just traded in a 3DS with a gouge across the touch sensitive screen, no stylus. They charged me a $12 refurb fee. It was part of a bundle I bought from CL and I'm honestly shocked they took it at all.

Interesting. $12 on a 75-100 system when it feels like friggen $20 games get $8 fees there sometimes. Gotta love GS.

"Hardware exclusions include: Consoles with parental controls that can’t be removed. PS Vitas with cracked screens or severely scratched screens. PS3 systems that will not power on/yellow light shutdowns. Handheld Systems that will not power on with the charger plugged in. Systems known to be modified. Hardware with severe cosmetic damage to the extent of being clearly un-repairable, or to an extent that clearly renders it ineligible for resale (i.e. severe or unsightly scratches, cracked cases, exposed internal components). Systems infested with insects or any other creatures. Systems with specific cosmetic identifiers."

 

 

Says only Vitas with cracked screens they do not take.

Thanks for the responses. $12 is not bad for that type of damage. GS must have a good profitable system for refurbing DS screens but not Vita screens.

Holy Shite that's nasty. People who deal with the public really should be paid more.


You have no idea man. When I worked at GS people would regularly bring in systems crawling with roaches, ants or spiders. When told we don't accept systems infested with live animals they would get pissed and start yelling about how that's not fair, blah blah blah. Good times.

Working retail or any job that deals with the general public can be horrible. There are some people that think the world revolves around them and they can treat other people like garbage without consequences. I've never understood how those people make it in life when they make everything around them toxic.

That is insane.  I can't even imagine that.

Should I bite on the $75 TIC for a 3DS? I already have a New 3DS XL so I don't really use the other one.

Thanks, I ended up trading it in and I was able to get my hands on a Grey Switch. Seems like a lot stores are getting shipments today as expected.

Man, finally got the rest of my Wii games that I ordered from the 4/$10 deal last week. I ordered 8 The Kore Gangs and only 1 of them had the original case and artwork, it's missing the instructions but for $2.50 I'll take it.

Traded in a ps4 and some games and got a switch and splatoon 2. Only cost 45 bucks out of pocket for everything. Almost as good as the xbox one trade in from a couple of years ago where they gave $250 for an xbox one on a purchase of a new xbox one. They also gave you a $60 new game and extra xbox one controller. I got my elite console then. One of the few times that I felt like I ripped off gamestop.

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.

As an veteran of the Navy I wanna correct your spelling of "sea" and hope you didn't get shipwrecked (he's my fav. on the podcast), hit your rack and sleep off the sea legs, fair winds and following seas await, at least you didn't get keel hauled for whatever happened ;p

Welp, took the plunge. Switch is far better than I expected. I have an IPS 3DS and expected the screen to be mediocre like that. Sure an OLED would have been preferable, but from my memories of the Vita screen, this is far better, neutral colors and of course sharper resolution. 720p is no problem at all. The body is so sturdy and metal feeling nothing quite like it in handhelds or controllers before. And still not TOO heavy. The menus are so much more simple and intuitive and useful than the Xbox and even ps4 ones. And double fisting the joy cons without grip to get around is fine, where as I'd thought it'd be the worst way to play anything or navigate.

Yeah, the one joycon with the stick dead center and too close to the face buttons makes the whole sharing controllers, let's get together like 1997 and play Mario kart at our hipster roof party thing lame, battery life could be better, it sucks that most body cases prevent it from being docked, and that this $90 dock is nothing more than a USBC to HDMI adapter, the kickstand barely holds up and leans the tablet like a piza tower, and yeah most of these games have Wii U versions you can play on dolphin but............... I'm pretty damn happy with this system.

Hopefully the unexpected great response to it will cause Nintendo to put out true sequels to Smash, Mario Kart, Mario Maker, rather than Deluxe versions, and there's more major games for early 2018 unannounced, rather than a long wait filled with indie e-shop games until Metroid in the fall. Everybody had their one 2012 third party annual franchise on the Wii U and then never made 2013 versions or 2014 versions. But already it seems like Fifa and WWE and NBA are all gonna be real versions of those games not like "All Play Madden" or "Fifa Street", and come out every year.

The one thing about Wii U was being burned by how few and far between major games from Nintendo were. But I think I can get my moneys worth just enjoying the few essential games, Zelda Splatoon Kart Rabbids Mania Odyssey Pyo Pop.

A bad sign is WWE on Switch can only handle 6 wrestlers on screen at once, unlike the PS4/XB1 versions. Although I guess that only affects the Royal Rumble unless counting the ref negates matches like Elimination Chamber or Six-Pack Elimination Challenge.

Like coolrust said, they have $10 system stickers now they're supposed to use instead of the refurb fee for scratches or other light cosmetic damage. I would file a complaint via Tell GameStop on your receipt.

How many wrestlers do ps4/xbox have on the screen at once?
