Been here since 2003 , I remember when this place was all corn fields .

(in my best dana carvey voice)I remember when i first got here all i had was my gamecube, ps2 and original xbox. not this newfangled 48k TV 2 gigawatt hard drive mess you kids play. Your controllers had long cords and your memory cards plugged into the system, and if you wanted to turn on the system you had to stand up. If there was a new map or character for a game you didn't download a patch, you got your ass over to gamecrazy and bought the damn new version. 

 

That's the way it was and we liked it!

Why is everyone acting like this is the first time GameStop has done this.
Most b2g1 with Csac they tank values. They go back up after the promos are over. Hold the games for two weeks and you are fine. If you paid any attention(even badly) you know what games always have the high values. When they need trade ins in January they’ll go back up to normal

Or in the case of Fallout 76 where it drops $30 two weeks later lol


Yeah but spend $30 on a bad meal and I don’t care but spend $10 too much on a video game I am distraught.

Crazy mental block, kinda of like how I can go out spend $50 on on a steak get full and leave part of it but the $7 beer I have to finish!

There simply is no way GameStop will around in 2025. Physical games will barely be around in 2025. At that point, people will be nostalgic about being able to download and "own" their digital games, instead of just having streaming licenses.

Where are valuable brands like: Blockbuster, Toys R Us, RadioShack, Circuit City, Sam Goody, etc?

The writing is on the wall. I hope the employees get out while they can. I'm not trying to be a contrarian, but it's just the reality of how things for GameStop are going. They will be bought out, stripped down, squeezed dry, and buried.

Digital books killed Barnes and noble
Streaming would kill Sirius radio and vinyl sales
Both of the are doing well just smaller scale.

Streaming video games is still not an option in the vast majority of the county. I doubt the infrastructure of the Internet will be that much better in rural areas in 2025.

Is buying games and immediately selling back something that frown upon by employees? Is it it a trade they will reject (I assume they have the discretion to reject any trade they want). My GCU ended so am giving the GameStop/ trading method so am new to this. I have 4 games towards the six game credit bump, and I was thinking of just buying (using already existing credit) two copies of fifa 18 and trading back in order to reach the 6 game threshold.

Two words “low profile” what ever you do try to keep one and you will be able to flip years not weeks.

Since everyone is talking kids I’ll join in.

I have been trying to play Zelda botw but my 5 year old loves it so every time I turn it on he asks for the controller. I always give it to him and he plays for a while until he gets to a tough boss. So yesterday he says daddy I need help and he handed me the switch with 1 heart left. I look in inventory and I have no food left! I ask him where it all went and he says “Link was really hungry” how can you even be mad about that!

I will literally shit on your face. No one besmirches the Crown Apple name and gets away with it.

I don’t need to besmirch it it does that on it’s own. It tastes like someone took apple flavored chewing gum and dumped it into a bottle of NyQuil.

Funny how almost everyone defending blackbeard has an account made this past summer. It's as if they only joined CAG in hopes of getting access to his stupid sheets when he decided to put restrictions on them.

I’ll defend him, and I have had my account over a decade. Sounds like you are pissed because you don’t have access to the sheets.

You can transfer data from one PS4 to another, it will not transfer it will just clone the drives. Speaking as someone that has two PlayStation pros and two Xbox ones I would not switch out that. The problem is that you have to set one as your primary and that's the only one that will update to the cloud automatically. So on your non-primary you need to re-download to save and re upload the save manually. Xbox really does make it easier having two systems.

we dont have backwards compatibilty on PS4 because of the cell processor yes but mostly because at this point it really wouldnt sell many more consoles to cover the cost. While people like myself and hardcore gamers would like the feature i doubt i would buy any new games for it and i already have a ps3 with a ton of games on it. So although i think the feature would be awesome in my case and any most others i assume it would be a revenue negitive for sony.

I asked yesterday but everyone living in flippers paradise( cue coolio) didn't respond.

What is the best way to donate to Blackbeard? That should be the first thing in the FAQ.

Doing this in moderation will be the difference between making $10000 over one year and then nothing any other year or making five grand a year for 10 years. Not to mention raising a red flag on every other person who is helping you find these deals. Are used to do this before I found CAG and believe me it was a ton more work, if you want to go back to those dark days keep this up

I know it's generic because I had two pre-ordered and two separate emails and they sent me the same code for both.
