Absolutely no more 20% as tried today with 0 luck. It's as if they decided to take it out completely

Don't know how they still had those. 3DS games disappeared from all the stores around here awhile ago.


The joys of semi lost stock popping up. Some definitly bring surprise

Are we not able to trade in Cyberpunk anymore?


They likely pushed values under. Not even Left 4 Dead(1st)is accepted

I was at two separate stores today, no sign of a proday sale at either. Where did you see there was going to be a sale?


I was told by employee but likely they were wrong if that's the case

All the more reason to keep an extra on side to modify or jailbreak. As much as I want to support Sony,they are just backhanding legit buyers who simply want to enjoy purchases from digital.

Note that typically they don't always show up on the system listing pages under used or on awd itself occasionally. They can only be found by already using the AWD links to the specific page in those cases.

Basically you have to bookmark the link for the sold out listing then hope you are there when it restocks.


That explains then. Just have to be lucky when it pops up and at random hours

I gave up on pre-order bonus crap from GameStop because I have a job I go to.

I don't get off work till 5, and everything is gone. So happy all the losers that stay at home, jobless and living with mommy and daddy get to get a poster or whatnot and I, who has to work, doesn't get shit.


*Calls people losers
*Posts on thread on a gaming website
*Expects and demands sympathy for not getting bonuses

If you even remotely tried in being nice to employees,you'd know some locations got extras but stay there btching and moaning. You are why most would not help out with that negativity. Change while still can as never too late

Yeah I just guess my point is with even 10 minutes of hunting you can probably find a better price on something, but not everyone is like that, and in fact most people just buy without looking because the just want it and buy it - instant gratification.

I'm growing more and more aware that I'm the "thrill of the hunt is more exciting than the prize" type of person though, So I love doing this crap.


I feel that though patience is worth it at times

I think a lot of it is convenience and ignorance/laziness too. A lot of people don't bother to hustle around online or in store like we do. Most people want what is in their face and available to them right there. Its the reason digital is so popular, if everyone was like us here on CAG I think Physical would be in even more demand than it is.

I notice that even on ebay people over pay. Not sure if its bidding wars or what, but with patience (depending heavily on the game) you can find better deals on ebay by waiting, or just look on facebook marketplace/letgo and you'll typically find the going rate and be able to get in just a bit under that. Example being people would bid used copies of Spiderman MM Ultimate edition with the DLC for Spiderman Remasted unused up into the 40-50$ range, where I threw an offer in and got a copy for like 35$ after tax/shipping. Not to mention people are still paying full retail for that game at a variety of stores.

So - again, if you're willing to put in the time and not just buy on the first thing you see, you'll always save money, but most people would rather pay more for the convenience it seems.

Edit - another example from just this morning Ratchet and Clank Rift Apart PS5 - been doing some looking and it goes for around 30-35$ + Shipping/tax on the usual sites. Hunted OfferUp and found a copy for 20$ + shipping and tax - was around 26$ out the door. A little investigating pays off. Granted OfferUp always seems like the deals fall through/is shady so we'll see if this shows up lmao.


Hustling just isn't the same anymore. Sure there are deals but with prices rising up on basic necessities,you gotta put what's more important on focus. Also give in the fact a lot more stuff has dropped in value with regards to trade ins
