Just got back from GameStop and had a great time. Haven't been there ina while, been using amazon video game trade in, which I won't be using anymore.
Traded in
Medal of Honor warfighter-got $26, amazon trade in $14
Xcom enemy unknown-got $28, amazon trade in $19
Command and conquer kanes wrath-got $10,amazon trade in $5
Lord of the rings middle earth 2-got $11,amazon trade in $3
Splinter cell conviction-got $7, amazon trade in $5
Fifa street-got $15(with no case or manual)amazon trade in $3
Got $95, pre ordered hitman absolution in full and still got $35 left. If I did trade in at amazon I would have gotten about $45-$50.

Get your shit together amazon, newer games used to get a trade in value of $32 now most new games are around $22 or $15 just a few days after its out.

I have no idea why you are so angry at Amazon. Sounds like you got more money by doing your due diligence; however, you still have a fistful of sand stuck in your craw because Amazon's prices are lower. News Flash: You didn't use Amazon.

Ah, 50 Cent is BroncosDude. That's good to know.

And yet he's not seething with trade-in rage at Gamestop for getting ripped off for that extra $19.

No best buys near me have trade in. Plus they don't have good deals.

"Plus they don't have good deals."

Ha, you obviously haven't paid much attention to their deals, then. In the retail space, Best Buy has really been churning out good sales and promotions (especially pre-order bonuses). I've got nothing against GameStop as a company, but it seems I rarely find a good deal there.

You would get even more for your games if you sold them on Amazon Marketplace. The fact that the mods let this thread live is a testament to both their openness to criticism and their tolerance for nonsense.

This is a zombie thread. Not sure why it needed to be resurrected. I trade in about 1% of my games. I call myself a collector. Truth is, I freak out and think that Ill get around to replaying all of my games at some point adn I just cant let go. Though I am replaying Mass Effect and Bioshock right now.

Because now there is definitive proof (as if we couldn't tell from his post structure) that Magz is Broncosdude, that racist, pos.

Anyone know if they offer decent trade-in credits on consoles? I don't know if their occasional bonus deals apply to hardware as well. I'm thinking about trading in one of my PS3s.
