Hi guys, quick Q.

I have a launch PS4 Pro system with the GS 2 Year Warranty. Recently I've been having issues with the system resetting randomly even when playing.

Anywho before it expires (mid November), I'd like to take it to my local store I took this warranty out on and get the newest PS4 Pro revision. Looking online it seems its the Read Dead 2 Pro Bundle.

I'm wondering, can I pre-order this Read Dead Pro system and when it comes out, go to store let them know about my issues and somehow walk home with the new system bundle?(same price as launch model) The reason I plan to pre-order a Read Dead 2 Pro is because apparently the Pros are hard to find? So I want to get one ASAP. Makes sense?

Any suggestions? Thanks guys! (if this is stupid and won't work, please let me know to avoid embarrassment.)


I really doubt they'll let you turn in your used PS4 for a new one that's bundled with a game. They'll probably just swap it out with another pre-owned one.

I visited my local store and Gamestop is trashing Wii, 360 and PS3 games now.

So far I’m not seeing the $5 extra for Switch games. Every GS I’ve been to recently is loaded with Switch games, so I’m a little surprised they’re even doing a promo honestly.

I traded in a couple Switch games last night and the $5 bonus automatically applied to each.

I want to trade in Crash Switch (not feeling the game, the controls are just as bad as I remember) but they dropped the elite pro tiv from $24 to $18. Meh, I'll hold it for now.

I went to two stores last night and heard nothing like that. Source?

Thanks for the confirmation. I’ll have to see if TIV tanked now lol

Really want AC: Odyssey but I know it’ll be $29 on or before Black Friday so I’m controlling myself.

Same here. I was tempted to spend the money the Gold Edition, but I had the Deluxe Edition of WWE 2K19 and I know I don't have time to play everything right now and like you I know it'll be cheap on BF and it's become my tradition to buy the annual AC game for half the price a month after it releases.

Yeah, I traded in my Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 for Switch and got $29 which was great since they only sell it for like $37 and I paid $15 for it.

It wasn’t all of them, but they did purge a bunch of cheap titles, like old sports games etc

There is a 0% chance of that happening.  The warranty would cover the exact type of system you have, and not a new replacement.

I assumed that he's only talking about sports titles and old music and Move titles, but it was kind of a blanket statement. That said, I will probably pick up a few more games before the buy four used games for $10 sale ends. There are some really good deals to be had. And I'm not picky.

Well, shit. I've got a PS4 copy and Switch copy, was waiting for a decent promo. Ugh.

Stores were given lists of games to collect & donate to non profits. It’s mainly all old EA Sports games & Kinect games.

Wow. GameStop doing something decent? As I live and breathe. There's probably a tax write-off in there somewhere, but let's not think about that.

Associate shared with me that they're discarding last gen games from Wii, X360, PS3, and DS. Associate offered me any games from the list. After a quick glance, I saw a bunch of low profile games. Off the top of my head: Haze, Infamous 1 and 2, all Maddens up to 09, NHL's, Hannah Montana DS games and tons others. I would guess these games are most of the less than $1 trade ins.

I mentioned this a week ago so it's definitely happening

 

 

By the way, doc_j, you ever get contacted by a district manager about your issue?

Did your pro boost kick in before or after the $5 increase?

Pro/Elite bonuses always apply to base values, so before.

Probably already known by most, but seems like Gamestop is moving all their New Vita games to Used now. Went in last night and every Vita game was used. Unfortunately I already had most of them and the ones I didn't were visual novels.

The Annual WWE game is another on that always hits around half price on BF.

This is true, but it's typically the standard edition of the game and I wanted the Deluxe Edition for the season pass. I still need to get back to Orgins and finish that so I am in no rush on AC Odyssey.

Thank you for the feedback guys. Don't remember the guy saying "well replace it with a used model". I'll give them a call.

Went to reddit last night and didnt see anything about others getting pre-owned units just that if they get a replacement, GS has to have the unit in stock else they have to send you to another store or wait for stock thus my q about pre-ordering. BTW the reason I mentioned the new bundle is because it has the same monetary value as the ps4 pro? ($400)

Well thanks. I'll let you guys know how it goes in a few weeks! Whatever the case I know I'm covered for a replacement.

I thought that Crash Bandicoot PS4 was on the Guaranteed $20 towards New/Pre Order list? Guess I should of traded it in earlier in the week.

All of the Activision games that were on sale for the BB DOTD were also on sale for the same price at GS and other retailers (even Crash for Switch.) It was a publisher promo. Of course the TIVs are going to crash, especially, with the sale being only a few days ago.

I see what you did there! 

 

 I was going to dump my PS4 Crash since I have it on Switch, but $18 is too low.

New copies of Owlboy have been converted to pre-owned. I checked yesterday and nobody had a pre-owned copy, but just about every store had new copies. I looked a little bit ago and it’s the complete opposite.

This Switch version is the only one that’s been converted so far. It’s a good deal if you still have Elite Pro.

I didn't know that was a thing. I never bought a warranty and just assumed it was similar to best buy where if you bought it new that they would replace it with a new one.

When I worked there I replaced warranties with whichever condition was equivalent to what they bought. PO got PO replacements, new got new. I'd be pissed if I paid $40 for a warranty on a new console and got someone's cheeto stained roach hotel as a replacement.

Yeah, that's what I was getting at. Maybe I missed it but I dont remember the OP saying anything about buying it used so I assumed what he was asking was reasonable but ymmv on getting the RDR bundle.

I once saw somebody doing a warranty claim for pre-owned PS4 slim. The employee brought out a brand new ps4 slim and told him that's all they have. Maybe wait until they are out of stock of the pre-owned item and then go in.
