My son has discovered Pokémon cards. Is the current 25% off for pro days about the best deal I will find this holiday season on them? I have lots of GS trade credit and would prefer to get him some cards there for as cheap as possible.

I feel that since the new Marvel Spider Man is exclusive to PS4, xbox fanboys want to get in the bandwagon of playing a Spider Man game on Xbox One. That game is not rare at all because I remember trading in 4 copies of both ps4 and xbox One to gamestop. Indeed it was $19.99 and even $15.99 for those who had GCU at Bestbuy. It's not worth the price people are selling for now. All you need to do is think a little and it's common sense.  

Was it somehow not available to Xbox One only users prior to the new game coming out? No? Then there goes that argument you claim to involve common sense.

It’s expensive because people haven’t stopped wanting to play it ???.....Huh?

The only reason this game is expensive in particular like the guy asked for XBOX1 VERSION Is because the game is OOP and is currently the ONLY way to play a current gen Spider-man game on the Xbox 1

The game when in print was selling at multiple retailers for $19.99 and less. It wasn’t until Marvel’s Spiderman was announced, did the game start raising in price on the second hand market

So me saying people wanting to play it doesn't mean that it isn't also expensive due to it being OOP as well and a means to play a Spider Man game on the XB1. 

 

I resell games for a living (among other things) and keep track of this for the PS4 and XB1. It certainly was expensive (depends on how you view that word, it's been fluctuating between $30 - $60 for about 2+ years) since before Spider-Man was announced. The game was announced during E3 2016. 

 

Yes, when it was in print it got price drops (like all games) but once that stopped (2 years ago coincidentally, remember the game came out in 2014) it shot up in price. Hell, check out the PS4 version prices. It has been going for $80+ for over 2 years now.

 

You can view pricing history for it on CCC and it shows the game was sold for $30 - $60 (none FBA, it sold for more if fulfilled by Amazon) for the last two years and continued to climb once Marvel's Spider Man came out. I wasn't disputing that Marvel's Spider Man didn't have a correlation, just that it was already expensive since before it came out or was announced due to people wanting to play it (as well it being hard to find). https://camelcamelca...duct/B00FRESTZW

Thanks for the quick response. Now just to pick a set, I didn’t realize there were so many options until I just looked at the website.

Is your argument really that since you traded in 4 "used" copies of a hard to find in new condition game that it must not be hard to find? Where's the correlation? You make it sound like just b/c a game dropped in price at retail stores before it went OOP that it's not rare. Wonder what you think about Pokemon games, Bayonetta (Wii U, before the Switch announcement), or Rock Band Band in a Box (actually, any Rock Band). 

 

I don't think you're thinking much when you decided to type that.

So I have an OG PS4 and I'm thinking of trading it in for a slim.

The current trade-in value is $175 for credit and $140 cash. There's a promotion that says cash value is same as credit. So it sounds obvious, but that means I would walk away with $175 in cash, correct? and I wouldn't need to be a pro member?

Does anyone know how long this cash as credit promo will be in effect? And do you anticipate the trade-in value to drop significantly in the next week or so?

Thanks in advance.


Not trying to stop u or anything but if I were you i’d upgrade to a pro rather than trade ur OG PS4 for a slim. Unless that PS4 is the launch model and is starting to do weird things. Well u do get a free game with the slim tho

yeah I've been considering it. I know the slim is a side-grade rather than an upgrade, but I figured since I'd break even then I might as well. I've had my current ps4 for 4 years now and it has gotten loud and a bit sluggish, figured a fresh model would be good.

 

but I do have PS VR, and I plan to get a 4k TV pretty soon...I just wish the PS4 pro was discounted on black friday. maybe microsoft's oneX discount will force sony's hand.

Even the slim is an upgrade. I traded in my 500 gb original PS4 for a 1 TB slim this past summer and immediately noticed a difference. Not only did I have more space for games, but it runs faster, not as much noise, and the newer controller that came packed in was better. I don't think you need a Pro unless you have a better TV which I don't. And you will get Spider-Man for free if you can get one of those $199 bundles. I say go with your gut.

Nothing wrong with the slim, and Pro isn’t twice as good despite being twice as expensive. Took my $300+ TIV for the Pro and will likely get the Spidey Slim. If you only need a PS console to play PS exclusives or to play with PS friends it’ll do the job.

How’d you get $300?

if youre getting a ps4 i would definitely say get a slim because if they dont do backwards compatibility youll just be buying it to play a few ps4 games before next gen replaces it 

 

 

 

and also, if ps5 is backwards compatible, its highly likely that those games will end up playing at ps4 pro settings on the ps5.

Months ago.

Since last years slim 500’s were $199 with Kohl’s cash back I’d figure it’d be similar this year, and even better they’re 1TBs with a pack in game. Wanted to unload my loud ass Pro anyway. I got the Xbox X so any PS4 I’d rebuy wouldn’t be my main system.

I can confirm by looking at the new Dollar General ad that the GameStop card deal definitely ended on 11/10. It's now been replaced with a different deal where you can save $5 on a $30 purchase or save $10 on a $50 purchase of restaurant cards including Applebee's, Chili's, Domino's, IHOP, Taco Bell, and Wendy's cards. So, in other words, it's good for carb loading before standing in line at GameStop on Black Friday...or making the possibility of a cardiac event that much more likely. That deal ends on 11/17.

Dollar General stores have sent out a memo to not sell gift cards and not to honor the prices. Stores have signs on their doors that it's a mistake.

Oh my bad. It just shows the sign on a dollar General saying they aren't honoring the gift cards.

Found a Spiderman PS4 CE just sitting on a shelf at my local GS.  Should I pick it up or does anyone think there might be a price drop this holiday season?  Got coupons to burn so was thinking that might be a good candidate.

No. There's different certificates that can only be used online.

Last holiday season GS did a B1G2 free on collectables and some Pokemon boosters and boxes were included. Bought lots for my daughter. May keep an eye out in case they repeat it.

Well damn. I bought Firewall Zero the other day after hearing the decent reviews, but honestly, its not very good. Graphics are terrible, controls are bad, hit detecting is all over the place. Just didn't like it. Was hoping I could return it to gamestop since it was the "new" copy from the store shelves that they had already opened, but as I assumed, not going to happen. I still don't understand how they get away with that.

Sorry if this has been asked but if I buy one of the games on sale today for store pickup and don't pick it up until tomorrow, I won't get the sale price, correct?

 

Thanks
