So i brought in 5 PS2 games that showed up on the app, but the cashier was only able to find 2 of them in the system. He even showed me the screen, to prove they didn't show up at all. Kinda sucked - with the Prestige bonus, one of the games would have been about $10 (along with nearly $5 each for other games). Oh well - maybe they'll show up later?

Anyone had any luck, bad or otherwise, trying to trade in PS2 titles?

I was told the same thing on about half of my PS2 games I was trading in. I showed him how they come up in the app and he suddenly was able to find all of them in the system.

I traded in some PS2 games tonight and 2 of them got hit with a refurb fee, but they came up as "retro refurb" and were $0.00 so I didn't lose anything.

Anyone have a list of the ps2 games you can trade in?

Scans of the list were posted on page 225 (I think that's the page)

Gamestop corporate takes negative surveys seriously. A couple of months ago I was trading in a bunch of games and my credit total was less than it should have been. I asked if the correct promos had been applied and he said they were all there (40% for trading toward DKC Tropical Freeze). I told him I think it was wrong and he looked again and said it was correct. I noticed at the same time that the amount on the screen dropped. He dropped a refurb fee on my highest value trade in for questioning the trade credit. I said that was bullshit and he grabbed the game case and said it was pretty scratched up, but didn't show it to me. I should have asked to see it, but I just wanted to leave, so I took DKC and left. I did the survey right when I got home and torched him.

The next time I was in GS picking up something else, the manager said something to the guy helping me about "the Donkey Kong incident". He apologized to me and said he looked at the game and it shouldn't have gotten a refurb fee. They said the employee was being retrained in what constitutes a refurb fee. He also gave me a $10 gift card. Needless to say they got a perfect survey that day.

The Gamestop here has lists posted by system that have "games under $3.00" written on it so people don't have to ask about what games are the cheapest.
