I've been bitching about just this thing for a couple of years now. I remember how clean and organized the stores used to look, almost like a library of video games. Now the stores are cluttered with spinning t-shirt racks, glass display cases of figurines, and stuffed animals falling on the floor because it's hard to even walk through all of the mess of floor displays without knocking something off a rack. 

I knocked over a display sign on accident at the Sunset GS and got yelled at by Jeff (he was joking though).

Thanks TOGW. I was able to find this phone today at my store at the $30 price point. I will use it as a wifi phone to play games and use apps.

Side note. I haven't seen any Southwest cards at my local stores lately. I remember they said they removed some cards in December. Has anyone seen Southwest cards lately?

These are the gift cards that I saw today at my Gamestop in the mall. Southwest on the bottom row. Sorry for the blurriness, my phone is old.

I got one for Christmas and will say it’s not bad. No where near what SNES/NES is and totally not worth MSRP but not terrible. Also I agree that they should stop production as there are tons of these things sitting around nearly every store around here.

I went to Fry's today and they had 2 shelves filled with them, that's even after a $49.99 price after promo code.

I've been going back and forth about getting an xb1 again. Do any of these have physical copies?

Not sure about which ones have a physical disc, but the Fall76 one mentions that it comes with a physical disc.

There's a big topic about this on reddit. You may still be in luck. Just make sure the disc is perfectly clean, and some people have a few tips on getting it to work as well if the disc looks fine. https://www.reddit.c...l_disc_ps4_pro/

Thanks for posting this. Saw that some people returned their games and got new ones without having issues. Some stores pulled the defective games, but the used defective games will flood the pre owned market (GS, FBMP, CL, Ebay).

do ps3 controllers need the charging cable when trading in?

Related to the console trade in deal: does Gamestop sell factory sealed consoles, or is there a chance some employee opened and used it at home and then re-sealed it like they do sometimes with games?

I once got a resealed console (XB1S) and didn't realize it until I got home. I couldn't do an exchange because I had previously exchanged it for the resealed one. The resealed console had a bad hdd and noisy fan so I just ended up trading it in for cash at the time. When people return an unopened console, they break the seal to make sure everything is inside the box and then reseal it and sell it as new.

Are they actually doing double points this weekend? I'm not seeing it anywhere outside of a reddit post. 

From an email I got this past week.




* Elite Pros: 60 points per dollar; Pros: 40 points per dollar; Players: 20 points per dollar. Double points will be added up to 7 days after transaction. See a store associate for details.

What puts the target on your back the most for me has been saving tons of points and not using them. Gets me a comment every single time.

That and when they see your trade card has $300+ on it.

Anyone else hear that Elite level is going away starting tomorrow?

I was told that a message was sent out to the staff to inform them that starting tomorrow you cannot sign up for or renew Elite. Anyone else hear this?

Will they just go back to offering Pro memberships only or are they killing memberships all together, like GCU? That's a bad sign from GS because that's part of their main income (bugging people to sign up for Pro memberships).

Before I traded in my PS4, I deactivate the system then did a quick wipe of the system. After that I go back in and create a generic account on a wired internet connection (don't want to leave wireless info on system). When I get to GS, they plug it in and power it up, read what the system has (hdd size) and try a game. It usually takes less than 10 minutes. I have traded in 2 PS4s before (TIV too good to pass up).
