Is GameStop not selling Xbox 360s anymore? I've been checking on and off for months now and they are always unavailable. I'm just looking to get a cheap backup unit in case I ever run into any issues with my 360 down the line.

I was just at GameStop today and overheard the associate. He told a customer that GameStop stopped taking in ps3 and 360 hardware due to the pandemic so their inventory is low. They plan on accepting this hardware again in the near future once things ease up from Covid... I'm not sure how true this is but that's what I heard.

They have a return policy but I’ve never had that problem

Looks like the ad shows a Pro-Day this Saturday... hopefully a B2G1 everything or 50% some stuff...  [-(

They plan on accepting this hardware again in the near future once things ease up from Covid... I'm not sure how true this is but that's what I heard.

Some stores seem to go by different rules for trade-in consoles. One store had a few 2DS/3DS in stock pre-owned (nothing cool), but others said they had some on traded in - but weren't allowed to put them out on the floor and were forced to send them all back to the warehouse for refurbishment. Haven't heard about them accepting PS3s/360s/Wii, but I really hope they do start taking *ALL* retro back in and maybe someday listing loose/CIB/New - unless they feel doing all digital is going to help them survive...  :roll:

 

Most of my stores are starting to setup kiosks for PCs/Laptops. Next will be Warhammer tables!

 

For some reason I have 3 Wii sports games. I think only two covers though. They all look pretty scratched up but work. Will GameStop take my extras? Trade-in value is pretty high and I can't see selling them on offer up or Craigslist for that much.

Yep, they should take anything disc only as long as it isn't cracked is what I've found. I stocked up on a few sets of all the Wii games Amazon used to take in with good TIVs (Sports, Resort, Kart, Brawl, Party, DKCR, New Bros, Galaxies, Zeldas, etc)  But think it's probably time to give up on that flip and liquidate back in least complete / most scratched at a time. One set for the shelf of course! Eventually I'll just be left with a stack of Guitar Heroes no one wants  :whee:

Something is up with GameStop right now, or the game lost sphear is one of the buggiest ever for their inventory control systems and packers.  I think it’s going to be a rare game, which, well it sounds average to good, not great, it’s chronotrigger influence is enough for me.  I first tried to buy it for switch, got an empty case.  Since that sold out, have been through 3 copies trying to get it complete for PS4, of which another was an empty case.  That’s ridiculous.  I hadn’t been too active a GameStop customer in the past, but bought tons during these 50% off sales, trying to get complete copies.  While some came terrible condition, I think this is the first time ever a game has been completely missing for me, and it’s now twice within a few weeks!  I’ve been buying the game while it says “1 copy left” online, so maybe that is part of the issue, but I’ve done that plenty of times before.  Cancel and refund I’m used to, but just sending empty cases is a new low, which seems to be ok policy for them now?  I don’t want to deal with this again, know too many returns and especially claims risks a ban, which it sounds like they are having a party with right now.  But check your freakin cases GameStop, can’t mess up much worse than that in our transaction.

 

My guess, if chewy guy is shaking things up, people maybe concerned they will lose their jobs are caring even less than usual.

I order mainly jrpg titles, though not that particular game. I just think quality control from items shipped out of store is at an all time low.  50% of my orders out of stores have major problems or omissions.  90% of new/gutted games from stores don't get resealed and arrive ineligible for return.  This, added to the facts that they're keeping accessible inventory mostly online and their always-abysmal customer service line..  just makes me not want to buy from them at all.

I picked up Lost Sphear on Amazon Japan a while ago.  The Japanese version is in English and is very cheap.  Checking Amazon Japan, the PS4 version is going for 1,096 yen New (sold from Amazon) & the Switch version is going for 2,200 yen New (sold from Amazon).  Even with shipping costs, you will finally get your game & for way cheaper than the $49.99 pre-owned price from Gamestop (unless you just have the credit to burn).

Thanks, great tip and a huge price difference.  i just always buy US region though.  If I had known it would be this much of a hassle and result in me having to make two missing game claims, I would have passed, but too late now.  I do have the PS4 version of the game now and used coupons to get it, so that’s not an issue anymore though.

Dumb tip of the day: if you have something on your HAD or HAVE list, you can move it to your WANT list. (for anyone that used to use the wishlist to check stock status)

 

Side-thought: Hope this 50% promo can help us figure out if there truly are new trade-in limits... something like limit 1 copy per rolling 365 days should be easy to figure out I'd think  :-k

Has anything been rumored or speculated? I’ve got about 6 copies of Wii sports from yardsaling I’m looking to cash out on and tbh, I’m ready to take the soft trade ban because it’s been over a year since their last 50% promo and who knows when their next one will be.

Also, do they still do end of the month credit bumps? Not quite sure which day that’ll fall on since the last day is a Friday.

well i can confirm that this isnt true, unless its an audit-based system. i traded in yesterday and ive traded in 2 copies of a few games several times this year on same account. including the first day of the extra 50%

Sell them on facebook marketplace and make enough money to get a switch lite and some games. You have some nice items there.

They do seem to have bumps at least once a month, but don't think the Wii/360/PS3 really get any meaningful bumps unless the pre-owned price ticks up again. (I bet Wii Sports will be $199 pre-owned by the time kids of the mid 2000s hit the nursing homes... with The Office on loop)  :shock:

 

well i can confirm that this isnt true, unless its an audit-based system. i traded in yesterday and ive traded in 2 copies of a few games several times this year on same account. including the first day of the extra 50%

Thanks for the data point!

Wow nice finds. If you really must trade in to GS do disc only. Eventually you may want to start a collection of your own and loose discs are way easier to find for cheap. Or sell for actual money if you are so motivated. CIB = premium! Personally, I'd just hold until they hit the moon  :cold:

 

Gotta say I am jealous of your goodwill. 

Yep, mine only put the good stuff on their auction site.  :oldman: Except Kinect Adventures, plenty of those!

I feel like this may be a troll but I'm going to respond seriously anyway. Perhaps it's just naivete.

 

As said previously, this is a bad idea. Price charting has these at over $600 assuming they're complete. Even if you sell them at 50% of that on Marketplace you'll clear $300. The Gamecube games alone are over $300 and Pandora's is a $60-$100 game depending.
