Wild guns reloaded was a limited exclusive release that couldn't be found for a few months after the initial print run. The used copies are not hard to find around $24. Seems like people are trying to create false hype over katamari. It's available to download as well.

I never played the original version because I didn't have the system, but I did try the switch demo, and what's up with the controls or lack there of.

Woot! extremely lucky but my local store always comes through.  I asked them last weekend if they could get a copy of Reroll transferred to there store.  Sure enough they came through today and managed to get a sealed copy.

Lol these values are straight garbage. Who the hell is trading red dead or smash for 21, or a dual shock 4 for 14 bucks?

Since you know the people at Bandai namco, tell them to fix the controls. They are pretty horrible and not responsive.

The people I saw in the hood when I was getting the last copy of Katamari Damacy in the city.  One guy tried trading in some Aliexpress emulation thing.

I didn't get an email this time either here in CA that says 70%. Has anyone actually traded in and gotten it yet?

I didn't see a response to this. But I can confirm, for myself, that there was a +50% CA bump (+20%=+70% from elite) yesterday on 12/27.

Thanks for posting this. I've called around and all the stores say there is no such deal. Figured they wouldn't know as it's probably an automatic bump.

Thanks for reporting. Still don't see what the fuss is about when base is so low. $50 games are trading at $21. With the bump that gets you to $33 which was the base a few weeks ago. This is GS BS!

There's a few ways to look at it.

 

Here's one. It's a decent way to get the best price on games that don't go on sale, assuming used is acceptable.

Unsure if it's been mentioned, but Strategy guides at GS are currently 50% off.

You know, I often have loses at GameStop. But the wins are sweet. Just got a Wii U game for $1 brand new in the wrap. It is Star Fox Guard. And also ZombiU for $3. 🤣

Let me break it down for you. With the current B2G1 deal u can get 3 games for @ $88 plus tax with Elite Pro.

At $21 + 70% bump it comes out to $35.70 trade in per game. Trade in two games for $71.40.

$94 (w/taxes) - $71 = @ $23 for a game.

Not a money maker, but considering my boys just got a Switch it's an easy way to get Nintendo exclusive games that hardly go on sale for $23 (using only store credit).

There are stores practically next to each other so it only takes some planning and a few minutes.

Went to a no cash store for the 50% boost and the place was mobbed. They were telling everyone about the B2G1 but they were totally wiped out of switch games. They should be paying more especially this time of year to replenish the shelves. Traded some stuff I have been holding out for a bonus on but pretty much everything dropped further recently. The only solid value I saw was DS3 controllers (got 25.50 for a few).

Seem to recall someone posting about the Shadow of the Tomb Raider Croft Edition, which I just bought as well. Looks like it's now being sold online with a $10 GS giftcard. Not sure if that applies in store as well or how that promo usually works. Just FYI in case any recent purchasers wanna get in on that.

I still trying to figure out if anything beyond the base game is worth it. I loved the new tomb raiders (1-2) but unsure if should get a deluxe version if I won’t play multiplayer or care about gear

They’re fun games. Probably two of the better games that use the GamePad in a unique way.

Yeah, I get all that. But if you don't have Elite, this doesn't make sense. And earlier in the thread, there were a few posts suggesting this is a great flipping opportunity. It's not. In your example, someone who only has pro is paying $40 for the game they keep. Big deal.

Why is everyone acting like this is the first time GameStop has done this.
Most b2g1 with Csac they tank values. They go back up after the promos are over. Hold the games for two weeks and you are fine. If you paid any attention(even badly) you know what games always have the high values. When they need trade ins in January they’ll go back up to normal
