I was in picking up 3D World and was complaining that I didn’t know what preowned games were available to combine with the 30% and they told me they are going back to the old way of displaying the cases at least at my local store.

He said they got more complaints from folks with the new method... ie they never had copies available of the displays. So they will go back to gutting new games and putting out the preowned cases.

Anyone else hear the same from their store?

So the sales clerks can go back to redeeming the gold points on the switch cartridges they are selling as new?

At some stores it was reported that people bought new titles where the gold coins were already redeemed. You can draw your own conclusions.

Employees willing to get fired over 60 cents. Sounds like the typical retail grunt.

Hell I can barely get it to work at all online let alone double dip this month. I loaded it to my cart and the next day, I couldnt even view my cart, kept getting errors on my phone and computers. Had to clear cache and such. Booted the code out. Now it wont even apply to a preowned game! Only thing it works on seems to be 'new" games. Even cag16 isnt working.

Yep, the few I've been to in the last few weeks have put preowned cases back out and pulled any display cases for stuff they don't have in stock.   Apparently this applies to controllers and systems too(behind locked cases), so you should know if they have any controllers or Switch consoles in stock now.   So apparently the store feedback complaining about playing the guessing game on what is in stock has been heard.

The Zelda N3DSXL looks so nice. I really prefer the look of that one of the Hylian shield model. I feel like the blue and silver and other trim on that case make it look like a Nerf case, while the gold Zelda case is just so sweet.

I have a question about trading in a console for gamestop.

 

Now there is a promotion up to $50 for trading in.

 

https://www.gamestop...s/?pid=10114375

 

TRADE VALUE FOR: PlayStation 4 Black 500GB PlayStation 4

PRO VALUE Store Credit $100

 

does it mean that gamestop will pay up tp $50 more based on the store credit on the website? (so the maximum credit for my old ps4 will be $150??)

 

 

Thank you.

I don't think anyone knows yet, I haven't seen it confirmed. Since the ad says "UP TO" $50 more, and includes Series X/S and PS5, my guess is that it's a $50 bump for Series X or PS5. Then probably a $25 bump for Series S, PS4 Pro, Xbox One X, and Switch. Probably even less for Xbox One S, PS4, Switch Lite.

 

Edit: but the promo is always in addition to what is shown on that trade page - so the $100 trade value for the PS4 would go up an extra $25, or whatever the amount may be.

Thank you very much for your info. Do you think I should wait for better promotion for trade in?

Is this trade in promotion very good already ?

Also, my old ps4 is black color . The black controller coming with has some stink on the pad and scratches on the buttons . It fully work still. Will GameStop accept it?

If so not, I have the white one which is no scratches and stink. When GameStop take my trade in, will they accept different color controller than the black console?

I don’t think the ps4 tiv will get better. You could try Selling it yourself on the marketplace if you have the time.

They will test your console cables and the controller. If black controller doesn’t work properly you will get hit with a refurbish fee. Take the white controller with you just in case so you don’t get hit with a refub fee. Controller color does not matter so long as it works and it is a Sony dualshock 4 controller.

My GameStop sold through their red Switches. Thankfully I woke up early and was able to get an in-store pickup at Target. Sadly, I'll lose the $50 trade bonus for my V1 I'm taking in.

Thank you for your detailed explanation. I will go to there to trade it in because it is not easy to sell in market place for me.

Does they need the original hdmi cable coming with the ps4? It seems i don't have it anymore and I only have thi4d-party hdmi cable...

Your advice is really helpful!

Wonder why they want to go back to gutting new games 

How is it possible that no one in a multi billion dollar company is able to figure this out in decades.  GameStop is not trying to build reusable space rockets, they are selling new and used video games. This most recent failure to solve such a complex problem at least shows they have the budget and resources to print place holder cases.  So how about this, pre-owned, actual case stays out on the shelf and discs are in drawer like had previously worked fine.  New games, just put out place holder cases in the new games section and instruct employees to take the case off the shelf when the last new, still sealed copy in their drawer is sold.  No more gutting new games and people can tell what is actually in stock and for sale.  Any issues?  Or we gotta bring in more Amazon talent and chewy geniuses still?  I know their priority is jumping on the digital future is inevitable bandwagon now, but a functional solution to allow someone to visit and see what is for sale with out deceptive or shady practices (selling used as new) would still be good to get sorted while they are trying to sell physical games at their 5,000 stores.  Know I’m ranting...but utter stupidity, incompetence and laziness by people in positions of power earning millions just pisses me off.  If you are in a position that could allow you to easily fix a deficient aspect of the company, and you fail to do so for years, to the detriment of your loyal customers and shareholders, step aside and let someone else do your job better for half the pay.

$48 for used then -10% for Pro discount

 

Also, while games like Animal Crossing NH are also $30 base, the cost is $55 base used. So not nearly as good to get.

mario 3d world is $55 though

the discount for the $48 games would just the b2g1 promo so $32 per game or $36.67 for 3 $55 games.

!

Any hdmi cable is fine. Also be sure to have power cable and usb charge cable for dualshock controller. They will test the system before they give you cash or credit.

AFAIK Pro discount stacks with B2G1. Unless something changed since the last time I did this.
