I want to do the 200 xbox promo. What are the limitations? Can I return the xbox and keep the 200? Will it be prorated if I do not put it towards something else?

I know this is probably a recurring question, but I'm looking to trade in my Xbox one s for the X, but only have the Elite and Lunar White controllers, which I don't want to trade in, but I'd like to keep the bundled controller with the X. Anyone know of the cheapest Xbone controller I can pick up to throw in to trade? GS has a Captqin America controller for $12, but there's none near me, after that the lowest I can find is around $20.

You do know you are supposed to trade in a first party controller with the trade in right?

Your best bet is to find a cheap controller off of Craigslist or FB marketplace to trade in. Try maybe a pawn shop too

You used to be able to throw third party controllers in with trades, did they stop that with the current systems? Oh well, guess I'll just give up the pack in controller, they've let me do that before.

I doubt you'll be able to pre-order anywhere at this point, but I do think if you really want one that you could probably find one when they come out next month. It'll probably also be loud though, my PS4 Pro is only loud when running more intensive games like God of War. I hope the Spidey Pro isn't as loud since that will become my main PS4.

Yeah I guess I'll just have to keep an eye out. I think the Spidey pro is the best looking PS4 to date imo. But yeah when I was playing Detroit my pro was so loud it was ridiculous. Probably how they all are though due to how graphically demanding it is. I was hoping maybe the Spidey pro would be better in this regard.

Do you have a launch pro? If so those are notoriously loud, I switched to the god of war pro and I haven’t heard the fan ramp up much at all

In the same boat as you, my current Pro is basically a hovercraft. Cant play No Mans Sky without it being obnoxious. Are you not going to try for the 500 million translucent Pro? Or does the Spider-man one really check all the boxes for you personally?

I have a plain black pro, but I got it awhile after launch so I'm not sure honestly.

I personally think the Spidey pro is a better fit for what I want. Besides that it's gonna be hard to get the 500 million pro. It sold out almost instantly on Amazon uk when preorders opened today.

I really liked that Monster Hunter World one. I like the Spider-Man one too, but I wish it had some blue trim around it or something. Not a huge fan of the all red personally.

I have a launch Pro, but it only seems to be loud when playing games like God of War. I play Overwatch with little to no sound.

The 500 Million Pro is very cool, but I can't justify the extra money unless I knew I was going to flip it, which I wouldn't want to do. I am going to buy the controller and headset though.

Is the PS4 camera that comes with the 500 Million Pro a normal version or does it have the custom translucent blue casing design, as well?

I see that Madden NFL 19 is guaranteed $30 TIV for 30 days for Elite.  Do I need a coupon like in the past?  I got it as a free game at GameStop so I technically didn't buy it from them. 

 

Want to hold on a bit and see if there are any better deals (Amazon, Best Buy or GS) for it before I trade it.

 

And I assume the 10% bump for buying PSN/Live credit when you trade is over finally?

It is also translucent blue. They are doing the Pro console, Dualshock 4, Gold Headset, and camera in the translucent blue from what I understand. I still have my original Gold Wireless headset from when the PS4 version came out and it works fine, but it isn't translucent blue so I think I need the upgrade for cosmetic reasons more than anything lol. Same with the controller too since I just bought the Midnight Blue a few months ago and will have that Spidey controller next month.

For those looking for Spidey PS4 Pros, I was able to get GoW pro by walking in around 8pm on launch night (launched at 9pm) and paid for one in full. Call your local Gamestops to see if they have them on launch day.

Anyone have luck swapping out one of their "4 for $20" games after the promo has ended (but still within the 7-day return period)?  I want to replace the 4th "filler" game I grabbed with another game that has the same ($9.99) price.

I am probably wrong in thinking this but I would be willing to bet the Spider-man pro due to its character association will either be on par or possibly even more valuable than than the 500 million Pro. Main reason being is Spider-man will always be relevant and every time a new Spider-man movie comes up the value will only rise.

As far as I know there are no pre-orders in North America, only way to buy it is online on 8/24 so take the day off and get a case of red bull.

Spider-man Pro $450-$600 sold recently on ebay, 500 Million one just went for $1600, most in the $900 range. Crazy thing about the $1600 listing is the seller is in the US and won't even know if they will have/get  one to sell yet.

Separate pre orders or could they be applied to the same ?

Yeah, the Spider-Man Pro may be worth more in the long run than something like the God of War Pro, but I can't imagine it will be more valuable than the translucent blue console.

I found this e-mail in my junk folder today.  Came from a suspicious address, but I went directly to the website and it seems legit from looking at the court docs.

 

http://www.braysecur...settlement.com/

 

Anyone else should check their junk folder, as the e-mail has a claim ID.

Is gamestops site not working for anyone else? I can very rarely get the site to even load up much less do any successful searches. 

 

I've been consistently having problems for the past week and a half, since they started that retro flash sale.
