So you guys think gamestop will give $300+ for PS4 Pro, if they have PS5 trade in promotion?
Haven't used PS4 in months, can live without it as i got a switch/PC.
Will save that for the PS5.

Someone offering me $330 local for my 2tb PS4. Just don't want to wait and then PS4s start flooding the market in next couple of months.

Honestly that’s probably the most you’d get out of it for the console alone. If you’re set on getting rid of it you won’t get a better trade offer at GameStop than that.

I got rid of my original Switch because I was never using it docked and it was too big to play comfortably in hand-held mode. The Switch Lite is exactly the size the Switch should have been.

This is just sad....
Hopefully a restock happens and can get one.

Check amazon warehouse as they might have some.  That's where I grabbed mine back in march for 156$ iirc and it was listed as acceptable but came in new condition with just a small dent and crease on the box that are barely noticeable.  Just note that amazon warehouse is very ymmv on item conditions.  If applicable try to look for a dinger description which often reads small mark on such and such.

I'm going to raise hell and contact the BBB if GS is closed tomorrow and refuses to let me pick up my Animal Crossing preorder. I refuse to buy digital under ANY circumstances and there's no reason for them to close. This whole virus bullshit is overstated anyway. It's nothing more than a flu yet the sheep are going crazy and buying toilet paper and hand sanitizer. I also love how the soyboys and neckbeards on the GS Reddit think their jobs are so hard and they're health is in jeopardy because they have to work. It's like dude, you work for a fucking retail store. If you're an adult who works retail it means you're either uneducated or stupid and make minimum wage or barely above that. Police officers, doctors, etc. work real jobs and are the ones we should be concerned about, not some soyboy living in his basement with Funcopops and works part time because he's not talented enough to get a real job.

Stop talking.

Is a N3DS Xl worth it over a regular XL?
Being offered a N3DS XL for $45, very tempting.

Might trade in my OG 2ds for $20 to upgrade.

On a side not, can't find trade in price for N3DS consoles. Maybe I'm missing something?
Looks like they're not taking them anymore?

New 3DS is one of the absolute best systems to mod pretty much ever. With basically very little know how you can purchase a $20 DS flash card and get custom firmware on it in basically 10 minutes. The New model is capable of great emulation of NES, SNES, Master System, Genesis, Turbografx 16, and you can also inject GBA. The flash card will have a switch in it that then gives you a fully functional DS card and the ability to add a very good GB/GBC emulator on it. My New 2ds has a 200gb micro in it and the flash card has a 128gb micro in it. I love that system, and until the Switch is old and dead, and much simpler to mod, it will be my go to portable system, still for years to come.

You don't even need a flash card nowadays, all models can be unlocked by following a specific set of instructions (google!), ROMs are a bit harder to come by but doable. I purchased 3x 2DS XLs (drove all around the county to find the special editions ones - poke/pika/AC when the were running that 2DS preowned sale) for the kids and put pretty much every single game on the SD cards. Perfect for road trips, plus no fighting over games!

So a bit annoyed, I have 3,960 points. Not enough for a $5 cert....
Not planning on buying more stuff, other than persona.

I have the exact amount [emoji15][emoji15][emoji15]

Most people already know this, but xbox credit is MS store credit.
Couple of months ago converted $300 of my gamestop credit to xbox credit by buying $50 cards. Ended up buying 8tb hdd,samsung t5 ssd and some other stuff. Might work for some, mostly if it's on sale as MS store prices are sometimes too high.

Holy smokes, thanks for the reminder! Totally forgot about this.

So I just had this incident happen to me today and I am wondering what kind of advice you guys can give:

I went into GS to buy 2 sets of 4/$20 (only 8 games that were all different as I have been trying to fly under the radar at this store for a while). Unfortunately, when I went to check out, only the store manager (known Junior Detective that has had it out for me for a while) was helping customers so he had to ring me up. After looking for the discs, he sets aside 5 out of the 8 and only brings 3 to the register. He tells me he cannot sell me the other 5 games because he looked on my account and saw that I had bought them from a different store. To be fair I did buy 4 out of those 5 from a different store a couple days ago and I know they can check your past purchases (from what others here have reported). I tried to argue with him about why I can't buy the same games (how can this even be a reason especially during this time of the year!) and he calls me out for trading them back in. At this point I just left since I didn't know what else to say. Here's the thing, my account has been pretty clean for months and any boomerang trades from this current promo are not on my account. I would love to fill out a complaint against this guy with a survey but I do not know if it will just bring further negative consequences. In the past when I complained one time and left a negative survey, they looked into my account and then banned me I think for a period of time after seeing that I bought multiple games and traded them in (this was years ago). I just think that this whole situation is absurd. In the past they have given me a hard time at this store about buying 2 copies but to flat out just refuse to sell games to a customer is a new level of crazy. I am on the fence about just keeping quiet about it or filling out a negative survey to get this guy hopefully in some trouble. What do you all think? I feel like I have a strong case to present to the district manager or whoever would take action but if they look too deep into my account they will probably find boomerangs, etc that would support the store manager's claims against me.

Sorry for the long rant, feeling a bit emotional about it and I was looking for some outside advice and opinions. Thanks.

Comes with the territory. Don’t flip games, don’t get called out for flipping games. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯.

So playing Rage 2, but not feeling it imo. Combat is fine, but the open world kills the game for me.
Enemies are pretty brain dead and just rush you. Driving is clunky, just not good overall.
Bought it as part of B2G1, so rather not return it. It was around $30 for 3($18) games.

Is the $5 extra for ps4 games still going? Tempted to trade in for $7 + $5 bonus for $13.
Funny how I had a way better time with anthem and that was $4...

Trade that fucking garbage in. I bought it for $20 when it was on sale a couple weeks before BF and absolutely hated it. Easily the worst game I've played this year one of the worst this gen. I got screwed and traded it in instantly this week when it was only $4 base, but now that its $7 it's a no brainer. You'll feel better that the game is no longer in your presence.

It just looks really bad. Worse than a QB clone. Havent heard a word about the story which means there likely isnt one and from the videos I've seen it looks like it has a very dark, lifeless color palette.

great review, do you work for ign?

Don’t make it a habit of giving your opinions of games you haven’t played. Especially if they’re going to be this shitty.

So how good are the yooka laylee games?
I know one is more of a donkey Kong or banjo clone, 3d platformer.

The newer one looks to be a 2d platformer.

The Impossible Lair is a 2D platformer and the original is a 3D platformer. I really want to get the sequel on Switch, but none of the Gamestop's by me have any copies for Switch. I have the original on PS4 so maybe I'll just spend the extra $5 and get it for $15 on PS4, I have heard it's quite good though.

Just ordered code vein on ebay for $20. Hope it's not a scam, might play it and trade in when we get a trade bonus. Should be able to get my money back atleast.Was planning on using my $15 off coupon, but would still be $55-$15= $40.

Can't find anything wrong with listing,seems too cheap:



While I'm sure the listing is legit and you have PayPal protection if not he says that it's "Like new. Used once" but the photo clearly shows a shrink-wrapped copy  :-k
