Anyone know how to pull up price drops with the new site?  There's a dropdown for "filters" but it just brings up a blank area for me.

Do Gamestop take redbox disc-only games? with the redbox sticker still on it.

When I traded in, was my account with Pro (not Elite Pro) listed


So, interesting story. There is a second PUR account with my name on it and nobody has any idea how it happened. I looked at the number/points and they didn’t match my Elite Pro account.

Put it in a different case or sleeve, but generally yes.  Some employees may ask for proof of purchase, which would be your email receipt.

Same situation for me at one of the stores I frequent. They always ask me if it's the elite or pro account. Doesn't happen at any other store but this one, and it's not the original store I signed up at. This has been the case for a year+, so it's not due to this week's upgrades/changes.

 

I *do* have 2 back up accounts, but they do not share any info across them and I was not the person who signed up for them. Nor have I ever used my license on them for cash trades, I only use my license on my one main account.

 

It is a mystery.

 

edit: It pulls up when I enter my phone number. I should ask them to see the monitor and points, etc.

No personal frame of reference (only 1 switch), but the OG switch apparently can become a portable emulation machine due to a hardware exploit Nintendo cannot fix. (if someone knows more or i have misspoke please correct me)

In the same boat with my sons regular Switch if we didn’t dump all his fodder games during the 50% boost a few weeks ago I would be all over it.

I think I’m going to do the swap, new joycons and better battery.

But... as soon as the “new” switch dropped, the rumors of another revision surfaced. Nintendo did just make a deal for a new screen to be put in a “switch” that is not already in production... switch pro rumors won’t die.

With Nintendo online I don’t need the new switch to do any transfer stuff right? That’s my biggest concern

Correct, the OG switch can be hacked to put homebrew/emulators on it, but from what I understand if you use it online at all you run a high risk of getting banned. It seems likely the new switch will eventually be hacked also, its just a matter of time. But if homebrew is important to you, better off sticking with the old one for now.

I just got a wii u for emulation, $100 and can run gc,wii,wii u natively. Gba,nes,snes,ps1 should be fine too.

If you already have an exploitable switch, just keep it.

Wow, what a piece of shit website. They made it moron friendly, clearly, and made it harder for those who know what they're doing, to get it done. No way to sort by sale prices, filters that reset even when you click to another tab and go back, massive pictures for the intelligence impared, and no way to go back to a list view.

If gsdave were still around, I'd give him a piece of my mind, and wait for him to spout corporate speak about why I'm wrong in response.

But he isn't, so now i have to stew

Business stand-point, I can see why.

Yeah, it feels like this new website is intentionally trying to make bargain hunting more difficult, in hopes of getting more deal-hunter/CAG foot traffic in the actual stores. Reminds me of the concept of "hostile architecture/infrastructure":

For anyone curious, old gen games still work. Traded in some $2-$3 ds games and got $7-$8 for each. Also grabbed 46 PS4 games off of someone on letgo for $150. Kept 6 of them and got $366 in credit for the other 40. Grabbed a improved battery switch, going to transfer and trade my old one

I never traded in retro cartridges to GS before, so how anal are they with the labels? Both cartridge labels are intact, just slightly discolored.

IIRC, it depends on the game.  Some games don't allow cloud saves, so unless you can move the save data to an SD card the data is stuck on the console.

I appreciate that info. Anyone try retro yet today? I'll be taking some later if no one else reports on it.

Except why would we go in store now?  Figuring out which store has which game is now an unbelievably unpleasant process.  Same with the no-longer-filterable price drops.

 

Everything is more difficult on the new site.

Can anyone confirm bumps for games under $2? I have some low end 64 games that are non sports but I am not sure if they qualify.

It has to be at least $2 to get the bump.

We should be more concerned about the ability/loss of knowing if there will be a SB. The old keywords are only bringing up like 15% of the bumps.
