Since pro day was last month aren't we due for a Prestige day this month?


Yesterday I went into a prestige store and they told me that the next prestige day would be April 6th. Hopefully it's true.

Do you guys think $100 trade credit is going to be the best I'll get for the base Xbox One for a while? Wanting to trade it and my PS4 slim up for the PS4 Pro.

Dropped by my local GS to throw $5 down on a preorder for Borderlands: GOTY.  To my surprise, I was told that due to the release date being so soon (April 3rd) that it would not give them enough time to allocate stock for preorders.

 

Asked regarding a possible trade promo for the game & was told the only new promo he was aware of was for Days Gone.  He didn't provide a date but I will be down to cancel my Target Buy 2 Get 1 Free preorder if I can use trade credit instead of cash...

I can totally believe someone finding steelbook+game for Sekiro.  To be fair it was only $90 and some people either 1) do not care about steelbook as much as we do; or 2) mistakenly think that they need to trade in steelbooks if they are trading in the games.

i saw a preowned RDR2 steelbook yesterday. it was in great shape, too.

Yes that’s the best price you going to get

Unless there is another console trade promo coming soon, which i doubt because one just ended

Value used to be $70-$80

I saw it at $80 a bit ago but I wanted to make sure before I made the trade, thank you. There was that $25 dollar extra promotion a week or so ago, I wasn't sure if there would be something similar again after this Xbox One X promo ends tomorrow.

What do you even get for pre ordering that as a bonus?

That would be legitimate grounds to burn the store on a survey IMO.

Passport cards do work - noticed someone using one for a trade at my local store a couple weeks ago.

Quoting before you turn this post to a “.” Too

Either you are really trying hard to fish for info. Or maybe you aren’t and you got the thing to work that you didn’t know about recently. If so congrats I think

Went in to pick up a used switch controller the other day and the cashier started ringing it up without showing me the condition. I asked to see it first and was immediately met with resistance. "Don't run out the door with it, Okay?"

I check it out for a few seconds and it's littered with scratches and scuffs. Not huge but worse than I normally like for a $45 controller. I thanked him but declined and got the third degree treatment from hin. It's like he was personally offended. I went over to look for b2g1 Xbox games but he wouldn't drop it and kept bugging me about the controller. Insinuating that it was dumb of me to pass and that a new one would be exactly the same. A few minutes later I had to leave the store without even finishing my shopping trip. Why do GameStop employees always have to be one of two extremes? They are either incredibly cool or unbelievable asses. Sometimes I just want someone to leave me the Fuck alone and let me shop.

u must not have been to gamestop before, that happens alot, when u order for in store pickup, the store gets notified at some point but its up to when the employees have time to take the game from the shelf put it on hold, i have always gone to the store and the employee didnt know i knew about it but was besieged with customers or answering calls, pointless to do pickup unless u live faraway

Buy one of those shirts that says in giant letters "leave me alone" and wear it whenever you go shopping

Finally seeing sekiro pop up used. Ideally want that and dmc 5. What to get for the third game though, division 2 or metro exodus? Maybe kingdom hearts though it's not really my style of gameplay. Anyone playing division 2 solo?

 

Well, just got cancellation email for sekiro so I guess that's that

Not that I know of. Traded in Has Been Heroes for Switch this morning and it was $2.40 plus the $5.

Happened to me when I wanted to buy a used 3ds the Black Friday Mario one. He was hesitant to open the box. No one else in the store. And when he did open the box he didn’t want to open the 3ds and said no...I said ok I’m good then. Walked out...I don’t wanna spend my money just to open the 3ds and it’s scratched up or dented on the inside.

Looks like theres no used Sekiros ANYWHERE in CA and there hasn't been since release. Either it sold terribly here or people love it.

Looks like every game this year so far is lined up for a black Friday buy.
