I think your luck will be the same regardless, considering the quality of their "refurbished" products. I'd go with whichever is cheaper.

I'd get it new before I'd buy a pre-owned console from them. I just don't buy used consoles.

Edit: I remember a few years ago a "premium refurbished" DS came with earbuds and screen protectors, while the regular pre-owned didn't


Preowned = traded directly into a store & has never gone to the GS factory (sometimes systems are transferred betweeen stores, a RSB.)

Premium Refurbished = From the GS factory & in a larger box. Traded into a store & for whatever reason sent to the factory for refurbishment. The true coin flips. Note that ALL NEW 2DSXL/3DSXL’s are sent to the GS factory regardless of condition (something on how the stores can’t fully wipe them?) Those are sold in plain white boxes but do come with the charger.

What actually bumped? I see FH 4 went up a few bucks & the PH 3DS games went up but what else?

This is a great trick! Any other codes you have to help track values?

Picked up Smash Bros, Mario Maker and Pokken for Wii U. That may be my final Wii U purchase. Abut $11 each after Elite and cag16.


Do Wii u games not get the b1g1 50% off? Or was it an online purchase?

Was thinking about getting The Crew 2 for PS4, have a feeling it will be $10 or less soon. Gonna get CoD: BO3 for Xbox One for sure, it'll be $8.79 w/ Elite Pro before tax. My kind of price point indeed.

Any reason to think trade values drop tomorrow for the Target 3DS games?

I put a Zelda Wii u console on hold, hopefully the store actually has it.


Canceled both my holds as the screen was scratched on both

Cod WW2 Xbone dropped to 12.99 so i was gonna pair it with Blops 3, but Blops 3 dropped to 10.99 so now it doesn't feel like much of a deal.  Guess it will when they go back up though.

Went ahead and put a hold on a preowned Zelda Wii U. Hopefully it’s available tomorrow for pickup and is in good shape.

Well $8 each is the best price on X/Y and Sun/Moon I’ve recalled seeing but saw their TIV is basically worthless now.

They were about the same price on Black Friday weekend, but you had to buy 3 of them. I got my sister, X, Alpha Sapphire, and Moon.

The Zelda gamepad was pretty minty on the one I picked up. The system was scratched to shit though. I'll see how it holds up.

You can just buy a new screen with a digitizer included?

Yeah I have a Wii u already, just wanted the Zelda design. I don't have the time to change the digitizer, I wasted my time driving to two GameStop, haha.

Would also like to mention that a Zelda Shell is like 30 USD if you really do want it. Repair/Replacement is not that bad actually.

All the Nintendo Selects that were $5 from that recent Target sale are getting $12 after Elite. That's really tempting

I like how Gamestop’s employee’s final word is mostly “don’t shop here.”
Not really the message you want to send customers.

I believe it's part of the pre-owned sale, so through tomorrow, January 20.

Picked up the preowned Zelda Wii U and the game pad is Nearly flawless. The person who traded it in had a plastic cover for it. I was happy with that!

You post the same story to neogaf, where they are celebrating gamestop closing.  They can be weird sometime


Them and ResetEra are some of the most toxic people on the planet.

Went today to dump old WWE games and do the 2 for $20.  Got a steelbook edition of CoD: WW2 and Dead Rising 4 for $20.  Not sure why WWE 2K18 is getting $11 when they're selling it for $13.99 right now.  

 

Mine was also out of Wii U consoles and they only had some $4.99 Wii U games(they were out of everything else). 

I believe it's part of the pre-owned sale, so through tomorrow, January 20.

Yeah, it's part of the sale along with the $30 original 360s and $80 slim PS3s that ends tomorrow.

Thanks for the tip.  I traded in Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon this morning for $11 with Pro toward a PSN card.  There were a few games that I wanted on the current PSN flash sale (and I'm still broke as hell after the holidays), so that worked out perfectly!  :-P

Is an OG 360 really worth it? I'm on the fence because although that's really cheap, I feel like I'm just asking for a unit with RROD. How hackable are OG X360s? I'd like to be able to play Japanese SHMUPs on it if that's doable.
