That's not a glitch. That's how their trade promos have always worked. Trade glitches are like once in a blue moon.

Please explain to me how a game with a $6 base value getting to $21.25 is "how trade promos have always worked."

Except that receipt indicates God of War Origins Collection had a $12.50 base that day, which is odd considering we didn't have a stealth bump this past weekend and that value is quite high for a PS3 game.

The posters says that base was $6. Wondering if he looked the following day instead on the day of? or there could have been a POS update issue?

There were some fluctuations in values overnight last night, so it may have adjusted today to $6 base.

I hope you did before you traded it. That's one of the best games I've played in years. Got the platinum.

Refering to that trade in receipt, one would presume they were referring to the same, the first one.

Check Gamestop.com for that information and do a little bit of simple math.


I’m trying to make sure what i’d get and ur no help at all. I multiplied the trade in value by 1.6 since I ain’t elite pro. I’m tryin to make sure if I’ll be getting 27.2 or 29.92

Far cry 4 is only going to get you $6.40 with regular pro.

It's not hard to figure up the base price of $17.00 and add the 60% bonus you'll get for being a Pro Member. You'd get $27.20 total for Far Cry 5 on either platform currently. 

 

Edit: I am assuming you meant Far Cry 5 and not 4 btw.

Your post was quoting the promo #21612 so I was echoing the 70% boost being how it applies. The base value have always fluctuated as well. So that hasn't changed either. There was a mention of some overnight TIV changes. That's been the case with adjustments to promos in the past as well. So it still stands.

yes the base was 6 at 8pm last night and went right after. All other trades were accurate.

I unfortunately have to many games to play it. But it will be purchased again.

Some values rebounded. People mentioned that a bunch of games got nuked to $6 and then games like Fire Emblem rebounded to $20 base. The base values went through something funky over the last week for sure. It's not typical to tank them then bump back up so quickly. My guess is the analyst at Gamestop fell asleep on the wheel.

cool, platinum'ed the first one, waiting for the second one to drop.  Like you, have too many in the backlog such that by the time I get to it, it's going to be sub $20.

Looks like Life is Strange before The Storm LE got converted to preowned and Destiny 2 LE for Xbox One.

The first game. I passed for a long time because I thought it was "too kiddie". I was wrong. The storyline was great, gameplay was fun too once you get into it. One of my top RPG's of all time.

I was waiting for the second game to drop in price, but some of the reviews from people who enjoyed the first have been less than stellar. I may wait even longer. Apparently it's just not as good. I'll finish Xenoblade 2 and Octopath before I get around to that one probably.

I don't think it ever left. The problem for many of us is that it doesn't stack with elite, even though it was stacking with pro (at least it used to, don't know if it still does).

Thanks to people trading in things because of the promo I was able to luck into a complete copy of Dokapon Kingdom. ( Really uncommon to find at gamestop )

 

If there's any older harder to find games you guys are keeping an eye out for, now is the time to search for them.

 

Hopefully other people get lucky.

I found a complete copy of Dokapon Journey at a pawn shop for $5 and was completely shocked at how much they are going for on eBay.
