    what do you figure I'll pull for these games? all for 360 and all in good condition.

    GTA IV
    Wolverine
    Sonic's Ultimate Genesis Collection
    Army Of Two
    Sonic The Hedgehog
    Saint's Row
    Lego Batman
    Quantum Of Solace


    I'm guessing like $40?

    I was gonna try ebay, but after fees, i'd be getting probably the same deal i would be getting at gamestop, right? :hs:

    sorry if this shouldn't be posted here. :o

    you can call them, they will tell you the value over the phone if they aren't too busy. i've done it countless times

    if your a gamestop edge club member(14 bucks for a year, and you get a subscription to game informer) you get 10% additional on your trade ins, money off of used games, and sometimes up to 25-30% additional for used games during promos. i've been a member for a few years, it pays off

    because i'm fucking lazy, that's why :mamoru:

    I thought OT Gamer's Pulse had a couple EB/Gamestop workers if I recall correctly. Would save me a trip of heartache if I got around $10 for 8 games. :o

    Trade towards new product to get even more

    Trade in any 2 or more games toward the purchase of any new product and receive a 20% extra trade-in credit.

    as for the trade in prices, hell if I know.

    You can sometimes figure out a rough estimate yourself. Search gamestop for how much they sell said games for used. figure out what 10% of that is. and thats how much you will get. I always found you make more money selling the games on ebay or craigslist. selling for 15% less then the gamespot used prices is alot more then what you would get for your trade-ins

    same here. i just dont gotta pay for it :hsugh:

    you think you will get $40 for them from gamestop.

    Gamestop sells them all for these prices (used)
    GTA4 = $27
    Wolverine = $50
    Sonics EMulation = $27
    Army of 2 = 20
    Sonic Craps = $13
    Saint's Row = $15
    Lego Batman = $18
    Quantum Of Solace = $25
    thats $195

    I think you could get a good $100 on ebay. or craigslist.

    i'm confused on if you are saying ebay or gamestop would be the way to go? I didn't mean $40 a piece, i meant collectively. $195 would be nice, but I'd see like maybe $50-60 of that being more of what they would actually give me.

    I have always had better luck getting more money on Ebay or Craigslist or even on here then I have trading in at gamestop. I dont think I have traded stuff in at gamestop since n64 and PSone was out.

    The only game worth any value in that collection is the Wolverine game, (which I am guessing is Origins) You might get 10-15 for it traded in. all the others would get you between $2-$5

    yeah you'd make less money if you just went with them and way more money if you could find willing buyers

    saw one on ebay with 2 hrs to go at $19.50. so minus fees, I would get around $15-16 for it.


    thanks for the heads up :) I just might goto gamestop now. I'm not looking to walk out of the store ballin' out of control, I just want a decent kiss on the cheek from them after they rape me for what I could really get from real buyers :mamoru:

    honestly unless you are itching to unload them in a hurry (like today) I'd just ebay them, or maybe craigslist. but that's just me, I despise trading games in at places like that. greedy bastards, all of them :mamoru:

    They are not going to give you much. Not worth selling unless you just want to get rid of them.

    i'm starting to look at the ebay auctions for all the games and I think I could get a decent return on them. I guess I can eat the fees. but what's the current rape by ebay? I have 100% positive seller account, but I hear they hold fees now through paypal until someone posts a positive feedback or wait 21 days if no one responds :ugh: any truth? did they fix this?

    what's the best/cheapest way to send games won?

    I thought about getting a whole bunch of those priority shippers from the post office for free and i think it's like $4 flat rate?
