Gamestop "New" Thread

Let me just cut through all the fanboy crap here with some facts...

Xbox has HALF the active monthly users that playstaion does, therefore:
Gamestop has HALF the potential customer base for xbox games then they do playstation games, therefore:
Gamestop has to increase demand for xbox games by running more promotions for them.

Simple business sense.

P.S. I'm not hating on xbox. I love all 27 of my consoles equally.


Those promotions come from the companies themselves most of the time, the only exception is B2G1 on preowned items as those are gamestop’s bread and butter

PS4 Pro was only good for my PSVR, which I rarely ever play. I have preferred all of my other media through Xbox one S and X because it’s just a better experience. Really Sony? Release a 4K console and don’t put a 4K disc drive in it? Still hate Sony’s outdated and boring UI, and Xbox Live is still the best online experience.... The one thing Sony has are the exclusives, but not one of them has been able to pull me away from my xbox very long...

Does anyone know if the 20% off preowned birthday coupon stacks with the pro discount? I'm assuming, yes. Also, is it limited to one game or multiples?


It stacks with pro or elite discount and it only works on one game. I used mine yesterday.

The xbox UI is the Yahoo Search of game console UIs. Full of noise that damn near everyone hates, as is evident by them changing it dramatically a few months back. Not much better now but at least I only spend about 10 seconds in the UI before the game loads.

 

The PS4 UI is just the 360 interface minus all the fisher price colors.

Yeah they fucked up when they made the One UI.  I don't know why they think tiles is such a good thing to get to where I want to go.  One big tile, and two smaller tiles, below it.  Some ads in my face.  Too convoluted, slow and messy.  I heard they changed it now to be less messy but I haven't turned it on to update it. 

 

PS4 UI is clean and simple.  Get me to where I want to go.  Store on far left.  Library on far right.  More recent things in the middle.  No tabbing, or pages to flip through.  I got a Pro already so no reason to drop $500 on the One X.  I wouldn't have gotten one over the Pro anyway (for some stupid reason MS doesn't allow local backup of gamesaves which I desire, and I'm already too deep in the PS4 ecosystem, e.g. exclusives, trophies, etc)

 

MS is still holding strong with it's own dedicated base tho.  I realized this when my stupid cousin who already owns PS4 wants to buy an Xbox just to play with his buddies.  I told him to convince them to get on PS4 instead.

I have both Xbox and PS4 systems so I'll just ignore all the fanboy bs...

I'm using my phone and I'm getting some errors uploading the picture.

Days ago I asked if it was normal that one of my accounts didn't get the free $10 certificate from GameStop every month that my other account gets. People didn't because believe me so I'll put an screen capture and seems like I got my elite membership when this certificate was included and then they changed their minds and took it off the membership.Screenshot_20180301-105232.jpg Screenshot_20180301-105232.jpg Screenshot_20180301-105232.jpg

Speaking of which - the offer seems to not be working online. Is this in store only?

Spoiler that shit. You posted the pic three times. Someone earlier said you were probably in the pilot program, which your pic clearly shows with "Elite beta", so I don't think anyone was accusing you of lying. Most people just hadn't seen it since it was only available in test markets.

There were two test markets that got this, I saw someone ask if you were in one but never saw your response. Most likely once your year is up you will only get regular elite without the monthly certificate.

I actually do prefer watching stuff on xbox compared to my ps4. The ui just seems overall better oe easier to use. I can get to stuff quicker. Redeeming codes isn't quick on either system. movies didn't start over at the beginning everytime I start the console. I could just be me, but it seems like service like Netflix and MLB at bat loaded and ran quicker on my Xbox.

Might work better with 50% extra TIV from scratch offs.

You can make around 383 profit if you max out your limit and can hit the perfect combo of games.

Do those work on accessories or just games?

I’m brand new to GameStop flips, so I took the plunge today on the Elite Pro membership. I also put $5 down on Sea of Thieves and got the bonus with no issues.

My question is that it looks like I only got 40% extra trade in. Is this correct, or should I have received 20% extra for Elite Pro with a stacked 40% for the Sea of Thieves preorder?

This is correct. Preorder bonuses are usually 20% + PUR TIV bonus.

PUR TIV bonus is the ecpexted:
20% for elite
10% for pro
0% for everybody else

I also got the coupon for $10 extra on certain switch games (looks like its all the main first party titles).  Curious how that will stack.  Might try to go trade in Arms later if I have time.

I haven't received any of the montly powerup offers since I went elite.  Wonder if its bugged or something.

Yeah I noticed I went from getting like four active offers per month, nothing to big, but things like $20 off turtle Beach and so on, to getting nothing since going elite that wasn't a reward redemption coupon

Destiny 2 is obviously and even sweeter GS>BB mover now $44ish for $75ish I think it would be.  Are there any other games around $30 that are good BB movers that anyone knows about?
