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

Wow, talk about the Gamestop defense force being out in full. Usually even on their own reddit I don't see employees defending the whole opened vs new en mass like that. Gotta love the one guy who goes to the "used vs pre-owned" card. "You see, if WE open it, it's still new. But if YOU open it, even if you never play it, it's now pre-owned. Because magic happens." Still brings me back to the story I told before about the new, unwrapped opened game that I couldn't check for scratches literally right there at the counter because if I broke that tiny tape seal it magically became pre-owned.

it's days like today where a Gamestop Flip Sheet would be really, really helpful.    I'm kinda surprised nobody else has made one since - well,  then again I guess that's just asking for trouble so if it has been done they probably wouldn't publicly post about it.

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.


Yes they are. If you have trouble with a RROD, just exchange for another one like I did.

However, if you already have a PS3 and an xbox one, then no it isnt.



My question : Is a Wii U worth it for someone with no handheld systems? Or is waiting out for a switch a better deal?

Lol, shows how much I know about it. So do you like play it on the TV like a console? Regardless, is it still worth a pickup?

The console itself is separate from the handheld gamepad. You have to be near the console, and it may require the TV. It's worth $100 definitely because of the catalog of Wii and Wii U games, though you'll need Wii motion controllers to play Wii games. It also has a good homebrew scene, but doing that is up to personal preference.

Bought a bendy for Xbox One today, the store had 3 but they didn’t show as in stock on the app. Might want to check if anyone is still looking for one.

Interesting, I'll definitely take a look. Already own two Wii's so that seems like a good start. Thank you!

It's a matter of flipping the conversation on them, and asking "Would you want to buy something marked as "new", but in reality it's been opened, played, and you're not sure if the DLC has already been redeemed? Huh? HUH?!?!". Those fuckers aren't empathetic, so you have to turn it on their head so they understand that their stupid logic is flawed (then again they would probably say "oh that wouldn't bother me at all"... you know, because they are so far in denial and think they're right even though it is so fundamentally flawed it's ridiculous).
 
It's something that I just keep hoping and praying they file a class action lawsuit over. It's a ridiculous practice, which quite frankly I'm surprised they've been able to get away with for so long.

Are there any Xbox 360 exclusives that can't be played on PC or Xbox One? I had planned on buying one to play Tales of Vesperia, but now that that has been remastered, I can't think of any other games that can't otherwise be played on PC or Xbox One.

Fixed that for you

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.

I got my console new a couple year's ago and it got scratched up without treating it badly.

I think

There's not many left.  Can think of Infinite Undiscovery, Onechanbara: Bikini Samurai Squad, Project Gotham Racing 3 & 4.  Not much else that I can remember that was exclusive to the 360.

Also look on their website.

I don't want it, but for anyone who does and doesn't have it near them, in stock on Xbox and PS4.  No Switch copies though.

I’m trying to order a Wii U but it’s charging me $9 for shipping, even though it says free shipping on the product page. Anyone else have this problem? I wonder if I buy it and contact support if they would fix the shipping charge for me...

most of us are nerds to some degree, somebody's gotta know how.... I've considered using one of those freelancer apps/sites to hire someone to code it for me, but I'm on a site called "cheap ass gamer" for a reason lol

It's amazing it's lasted so long that the knowledge and hate for the practice of selling opened new games is so widespread.  I'm still floored by the time a game I preordered and picked up day one had been opened "so they could have a shelf copy"

 

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.

It's thirty bucks.  I would think it is.  I think I'll get one since both of my 360s have gotten really slow.  I'm really leery of buying a used console, but I'll just play the crap out of it during its guarantee period to test it out.  I think I'll get the newer model just since it will be newer and more likely last longer/have less wear on the tires.  The guy at GS recommended against that model since its ten bucks more and the cables are hard to replace if lost or damaged.

 

Depends on if you already own a PS3/Xbone/PC and have played a lot of games from that era or if you would just want the exclusives.  Don't know how hackable they are, but you will need a workaround to play japanese games as almost all games on the 360 are region locked.

Xbox 360 for me is worth it just to be able to use discounted Xbox currency on backwards compatible games. You can only use currency if you buy via Xbox 360...

Didn't see it in the ad, but there are good deals on puzzles, most are about 40% off.

 

Great to see Bendy is finally in stock, already got notice it shipped. I originally ordered it a week before it was released, went about a month without any update, only got a generic response about an influx of orders. I contacted them then eventually cancelled the order. Even if it was around Black Friday it was ridiculous to wait that long without a response. Had Red Faction in the same order and it didn't even ship.

 

Ordered South Park Fractured But Whole steelbook when it was $19.99 last week and ended up with a gutted copy. Was able to refund it and got a price match at Best Buy. Glad I'm almost out of gift cards, GameStop has been too much of a hassle. They really need to buy display only cases instead of gutting games. Toys R Us used to do that years ago and it worked out well.

 

That $30 360 looks great too, if only to be able to buy 360 games with XBOX gift cards.

They don't even need new display cases every time, just replacement artwork they can slide in when new games become available and old games move out.  But whatever, they aren't going to change their stance on this no matter what, even when it loses them business.

Slim but possible. There haven’t been many trade promos in the past 6+ months. One of them was a 25% extra on 2+ NSW games a couple of months ago.

There were 2 new spreadsheets around the same time in July, but they never got updated. I think I read that GameStop made it harder to crawl their site without getting your IP blocked.

it's broken when it compares new/preowned prices on some games that usually end .97, (and broken on items which you don't get pro discount on like consoles and probably other things too...) but little late than never,  see if this works https://docs.google....#gid=2023219697

The GS app on android has the trade in values for pro/NP games, consoles, etc. Helpful because it's UTD in real time and you can guarantee your TIV for up to 24 hours.

I got the last Gold edition from a Gamestop a but far, but was worth it as it was new and seale (Yes, I was surprised too) funny thing is that when I redeemed the Gold edition/Season pass code it redeemed the full game on XBOX (Digital copy and Season pass content) so now I dont even need the disc it came with since it shows I own it (already tested it no disc in tray), I guess I can just trade the disc in and get like $3 for it
