This has been such a terrible gen for controller quality, I can not bring myself to buy pre-owned.

Yeah, the quality of controllers this gen have been subpar.  Plus some of the preowned controllers I've seen GS sell are bad.  Nothing like getting a controller with analog stick drift and someone else's hand cheese on it.

As would I. Look, I respect every one with a family/job/etc. Im just saying if your only free time is on the train to work and during lunch breaks, even if you have a family you are slaving yourself. Most people get 2 days off a week, and have some free time. If you chose to do other things during that, thats one thing. But you cant say getting married and having a family/kids takes away ALL free time. Owner of this site is an example. Dont slave yourself

I think having enough free time is highly dependent on your line of work. I commute two hours each way and have been doing that for 7 years now. I work in a high-profile industry where the regular days are 12-hour days and I have to spend a lot of my "free time" sitting on public/industry boards, volunteering, etc. I don't consider it to be "slaving" away as you describe it; it's a required investment of my time to be in this line of work. Just like I consider flipping games and keeping up with deals to be an investment. Being able to play my Switch during those train commutes is a godsend. I don't even have kids yet, so I can completely understand those who have to do what I do AND juggle raising a family.

when I was a kid I didnt want to watch my parents play games either. So I played my own or watched my own TV...or went outside and played

Ah, you’re not married and don’t have kids. You don’t understand. That’s ok.

My daughter is one and requires supervision and attention. When she goes to bed I have a couple of hours, but that’s time for the wife and I to spend together. Even if that means she watches some TV and I can play a bit of a game.

Yeah, wife + 3 kids under 10 + chores + random everyday happenings = about 30 minutes a day tops during week for gaming. Only hope is to sneak an hour or two on weekend when everyone sleep. And if your wife is not into gaming, you better watch out cause the eyes will roll when you boot up the system. Switch actually has saved gaming for me. Well, except for the left joycon drift.

Edit...when I was a kid (even in my 20s) I didn't get why some guys were up at 4:30 am everyday...now I get it. If you have a family it's the only time you have to yourself.

Amen to the 10+ chores. The to-do list never ends.

If you commute more than being at home then is it really a home? And if you commute that much with that much free time when do you work? It legit just doesnt make sense to me. I understand couple hour trip perhaps. But family time every second I'm at home?

If you sleep there more often than not and also get mail there? Yes. Also, if you’re not spending every second at home on your family, you’re either much better or much worse at this than all of us or you don’t actually have a family.

Did my move controller trade ins without problems. Also moved 200 in credit over to Best Buy. I guess I must be the only one that trades in there because no one seems to know how to do it. They tried to tell me that there's a limit for customer trade in of 3 games total, per day. Not the 3 per title limit that it's supposed to be. After I dealt with that, the employee then tried to do each game as a separate trade in. They were gonna ID and fingerprint me (law here in CA) 9 times and give me 9 separate gift cards rather than to it all at once because they didn't know how. Good times.

I realize I need to stop saying this but: I should've taken advantage of the SB and traded in a lot more stuff, only to buy it back as part of the possible B2G1. I only did a few games and only stuff I was willing to lose (and not buy back).

Debating whether or not to trade in mlb 19 the show for Crash Team Racing. Then need to decide PS4 or Switch....



Whatever floats your boat but I'd say ps4 if nothing else better visuals, better online multiplayer, and for me I like the ps4 controller better.

Huh? How can they tell if we did the surveys? Lol...this is getting waaaay too deep for "fun and games."

Usually because either you're cool with the staff so they know it was you or you put info in the survey that they can tell it was you/your transaction. The surveys don't actually say "Bob left you this survey" as far as I know.

Just had a ridiculous experience. Tried to do the $2 system deal but was denied by the employee 'because that must be a glitch. It shouldn't count as a system'...ok. Then tried trading in a DS, but the POS had a wildly different total than the app value I looked up just before going in. Was told they don't take customer app values because 'some people code fake apps to look just like the GS app to rip them off'... I think that's enough Gamestop for awhile.

where do u see this?

There was a 1 or 2 page flyer I picked up that was for "Days of Play" that showed all the stuff on sale, and on the back of the flyer it had the tiered trade promo for trading towards a Switch (i.e. the PS4 Pro/X1X had the highest trade value, the X1S and PS4 had $200, and the fat X1 had the lowest TIV). Can't remember what they were giving for the highest tier or lowest tier, but know the X1S was $200 as I have an X1S).


When does this start?

Not sure. It was in the "Days of Play" flyer in store, so I assume yesterday (i.e. on 6/7). Didn't take the ad with me unfortunately.
