GAME OVER 2020
Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
This is playing out like another bad EA multi tiered release schedule.
But, if I understand correctly,
-People with the old Pro / Elite accounts are speculated to be good until sometime around the Q4 Earnings call in March 2020.
-There will be overlap, where existing "old" Pro / Elite members get to double dip with their plan benefits plus the $5 monthly coupon (To get their feet wet?).
-Regardless of the actual "old" Pro / Elite expiration date, the hard cutoff will be swift, perhaps sometime in March 2020 (if not sooner, no promises).
-There is no word regarding any form of reimbursement for unused time. It may be lost, it may be transferable to the "new" Pro plan.
-The agreement between the member and GS indicates that GS can terminate any account without reason.
It's interesting that the coupons come out mid month. I guess that means there will be only 2 weeks to use them before they get removed from the system. Sucky if you want to use it on a game coming out early in the month, if this schedule holds for every month.
Seems like a mess. I guess I need to see their new used price structure.
The promotion events may still be advantageous, even without Elite, although margins will be slimmer, forcing the manipulation of larger quantities to achieve similar results. Promotions seem to occasionally coincide with each other, which may be interesting, especially during a +X% trade bonus week. /popcorn
Also, stopped by a GS to trade recently, and the pre-owned Switch shelves had a whopping 10 games on them, all with generic cases. Nothing good either I swear the associate licked their lips when they saw my trades, even though they were loose or with generic cases. I wouldn't be surprised if the +$5 Switch bonus returns.
