Wow looks like first party switch games are running at 30 base. Do we have any idea what the eshop Black Friday deals will be as I’m debating trading in all my switch games for credit and rebuying digitally

 

"Some" first party Switch games are at 30 base.

 

Across multiple retailers, apparently Mario Oddessey, Zela, and Mario Aces, are taking a big hit.

 

Target, Best Buy, etc got deals to do this, so I really don't expect values to go higher.

 

Trade your shit now, don't wait.

 

It's not a huge surprise, since Price Charting shows them decreaseing in "new" values.

 

If I were to take a guess, I'd say the price is gonna flatline at about $30.

 

They are really good games .. it's just that they sold multi-millions .. and they are now "common".

MK8 Deluxe is the #1 selling Switch game, in the past 6 months, regardless of GameStop analytics.  I wouldn't trade that one in, just yet.

So couldn't trade in controller because no serial visible lol. Kept saying how it could be reported stolen.

It seems like bs, it comes off normally after couple years.

Played a few hours of Jedi Fallen Order and now I am having second thoughts about trading it in with the G2L promo.   The game is really good.

Yeah the cheap side of me is going to end up winning and trading it back in with the G2L.  My main critique of the game (and it's growing bigger by the second) is actually the way enemies are done...not enough interaction with interesting bad guys and waaay too much fighting frogs, dogs, hogs, animals and insects lol.

Yup that's what happened to me. I've only heard of trade bans lasting 90 days but yeah maybe it is ymmv. Could only get 30 for too many games or 90 for going over the amount. Idk.

I've been trade banned for two years now.

I accidentally went over $2000 during the PS4/XB1 B2G1 2 weeks ago (I'm probably at $2,400 now), and haven't been banned yet. I wonder if something changed (or a correlation with not getting any points for trades), or promo/G2L values are figured in differently. 

 

I've been trade banned for two years now.

My old roommate has been trade banned since Flippageddon 2017. Shortly after we all hit the limits, he went off on a store manager and had the DL or LP contacted to get it overturned. I'm assuming they went through his history and permabanned him, because ours all fell off after 90 days.

Am I seeing this right in the ad?  They're teasing a sale on Anthem next week in this week's ad?  WTF?

 

Just looking at the ad, there really is no point to this week's ad.    Seems like they're just phoning it in until their Black Friday sale.

Gamestop employees must be desperate for GPG's.  Employee added GPG to my transaction and said it was free.... I was confuse and wonder how that was even possible, but then eventually notice that that the bastard redeemed my pts to pay for the damn GPG.....

Burn them on the survey, say exactly what they did and ask for a leader to call you and maybe you can get your points back without having to call customer service. I would also take the games back and return them on that employee, as that hurts them. I had a cashier add GPG to all of my purchases and then try to rush me through the payment so I wouldn't notice and then gave me pushback when i did notice so I burned them on the survey and I never saw them again.

I'd suspect its coincidental but Anthem is supposedly getting a major overhaul.


https://kotaku.com/s...them-1839892415

Recent silence and a couple of high-profile departures from BioWare have led fans and pundits to speculate that the studio has abandoned its most recent game, Anthem, but the opposite is true. For the last few months, BioWare and parent company EA have been planning an overhaul of the online shooter, according to three people familiar with those plans. Some call it “Anthem 2.0” or “Anthem Next.”

Many of the details are still in flux, and there’s no clear timeline for the Anthem Next project just yet. In fact, from what I’ve heard, the developers at BioWare haven’t even decided how it’ll be distributed. They’re still figuring out whether updates should be released all at once or over an extended period of time. Anthem could be overhauled through a series of updates, a la No Man’s Sky, it could get a game-changing expansion like Destiny’s critically acclaimed Taken King. Most of Anthem’s biggest systems—its mission structure, its loot, its world—will change drastically, but the developers have not yet figured out exactly what that will look like. They’re even considering releasing Anthem Next as a brand new game, although those who work on the project said that could take a lot of forms (and it’s unlikely they’ll charge full-price to Anthem players).

I had that happen in September on my Pro subscription.  Emp said it was expiring soon (didn't expire until December) but said I could renew it for free that day.  Didn't notice for two months that he used my points to do it.  Also caused the B2G1 to generate in September with a week left until it expired...so lost that one.

An ad that went out this morning speaks more of the controller bonus:

 

Get The Newest colors For Less When You Trade
RECEIVE A $10 CREDIT BONUS WHEN YOU TRADE PS4, Xbox One, or Switch First Party Controllers**

**Offer valid 11.11 – 12.1 for PS4, XB1, and Switch 1st party controller trades only. Not valid toward cash trades. Trades must be in full working condition to receive full value. Defective items may be eligible for trade at a lesser value. Trades subject to manager approval. Cannot be combined with any other offer. See store associate for details. No dealers. Offer valid in the United States and Guam only. Void where prohibited. GameStop, Inc. reserves the right to cancell, terminate, modify or suspend the offer for any reason without notice.

 

On Switch, it seems they take JoyCons, Pro, general Wireless, and Gamecube (Switch) controllers.  Seems like a good time to upgrade worn controllers.

 

Since the offer extends to December, I suppose this means there won't be any big deals on controllers during BF.

 

Anyone try trading in a JoyCon grip?  It seems to be identified as a controller, since a controller protection plan can be added to it..

Noteworthy: I traded in a random third party Xbox One controller and it got the bonus.

 

Wired Switch controllers apparently work, too.

I'm pretty surprised that more people aren't taking advantage of the "Guaranteed to Love It" for Pokemon Sword and Shield. I get that there's more content there than Link's Awakening or something, but given how controversial the game has been, I figured more people would have wanted that "free rental" to experience the game firsthand without full-on committing.

Does each joycon count as seperate so you get the bonus for both?

FYI - Tried to use my $5 pro coupon for $5 of Xbox or Nintendo credit and they said I had to get one of the physical cards, starting at $10. Picked up a $10 Nintendo eShop card for $5 (used trade credit). Not bad - thanks!

Anything good to buy for $5-$10?

Have $5 off physical item, online order, not looking to spend $35 for free shipping.

Need something I can pick up, $5 off still works on store pick up.
