Bought for the 360 B2G1:

Syndicate

Homefront

Top Spin 2

 

Tried the games out and found Co-op partner for Syndicate and a full room in Frontlines Fuel of War.  Big surprise there are still people playing that online - unexpected bonus!  I was only thinking I would be playing them for the campaigns.  Not bad for less than $5 total.

If you plan on trading a lot of Xbox / Wii games Its almost worth purchasing a resurfacer because it makes Xbox / Wii games look brand new. 

 

https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B000RBE4B8 - I usually use this model with just the blue abrasive and it makes look almost brand new

 

Gamestop does a terrible job of resurfacing because they leave swirls on the discs when you order then online and I usually resurface them again to get rid of the swirl marks.

 

Some information I have read says you can resurface Blu-ray discs with the lightest abrasive for about a minute but I never tested it out because I didn't have any discs I wanted to destroy. 

I prefer only doing the white.  Never really cared much for the blue.

 

I did get a Disgaea 5 (ps4) and some ps3 games resurrected with my JFJ.  It is certainly very tricky.

I'm happy for you. You actually bought some games to play instead of for flipping/boomeranging purposes. I really need to start playing more.

If a store doesn't ask you for an i.d. during a trade does that transaction still count towards your 2k limit per 30 days?

Yes.  Only difference is, you could get away with having multiple Pro accounts, since it would only be linked to that account in this case.  Stores is my area do not ask for ID for trade credit (only cash), so you could have 2 Elite accounts (yourself and a "friend" or "family member") and do ~4k in 30 days (in theory) but keeping just under the limit on each.

Thanks - I do have the best intentions to play, but I know it will likely gather dust in the backlog.  I recently re-collected most of the 360 Clancy games.  Great memories playing them the first time.

 

I do flip though. :-

Is there a B2G1 on 360 games or something?

I'm not knocking flipping games at all. We all do it here, especially me. It was just really nice to read someone say hey I'm playing these games instead of I bought 30 something games or whatever to flip/ boomerang.

Thanks for the info, will definitely be looking into a second account.

Loaded up on all of those two weeks ago when the 4 for $10 became a 4 for $4 during Pro Day. 

 

Around 32 games for $32 online.

They hiked the price up on pre-owned PS3 games. From what I've seen so far Black Ops and Ninja Gaiden Sigma ($4.99 > $9.99). Probably a lot more that they did that to as well.

What games do you usually flip or do you wait for the 4 for $10 deals to come out? Are people flipping older game system games? Selling them on eBay or back to the store? I never really thought of useing gamestop for flipping purposes. I guess I’ll have to watch the adds more closely.

Is it just me, or have we not seen deals of Apple, PS+, Xbox Live, Eshop, Netflix, Hulu, etc. cards from Gamestop in forever?

I was going to go buy Lost Odyssey, Magna Carta 2, and Metal Last Remnant...but nope, all prices doubled so I come out worse than I would by buying them separately with no B2G1.

You guys aren't kidding.  Huge number of price increases for 360/PS3 games.  It's even more ridiculous that they do it in the MIDDLE of a sale (instead of before the sale starts).  It feels so much more "we got you!" egregious this way - like they want you to know that they just negated their own sale to be dicks.  God, gamestop is so slimy.

Does anyone who has purchased a Whole Foods gift card from GameStop happen to have the Sku number from the receipt? Thanks

Went to my favorite GameStop, a prestige store. The dude says, "you come here all the time, here's something for free." He hands me a lottery ticket, I go "man, what I look like a charity case?" I took it, but threw it on the ground.


You’re not a part of this system. You’re an adult.

Not to defend GS, but you know they do stock checks, right? What's also possible is GS saw inventories of certain games go down quite a bit and decided to raise those prices. It's not a new idea. Really no different than when Amazon drops and raises their prices within hours or sometimes even minutes. GameStop is just slower to respond given they're b&m.

The manager at one of my local stores just JDed me I believe. Refused to let me pre-order a switch game or buy a cheap one, ala Has Been or troll & I,, made me buy Odyssey to trigger the bonus. Definitely wrote down my name.

The worst they can do is a 90-day trade ban right? At first?

Report him... its what I do to all JD  usually say I was being harrassed by the employee. It goes to the DM and they handle it. I have had a few people from GS fired by reporting them every time I go in there and had a girl moved to a different store for making me put in 5 preorders with my 300$ in credit I got from a trade. If you are polite to most and share your story with good employees or rather ones that just want to do their job you will have back up.
