    It's not profits, it's just a smaller net loss for you.

    sure they don't give you as much credit as it's worth but it's easier and saves you the trouble of selling it. who wants to be a used game broker? just trade that shit in and get on with life.

    :werd: i know you dont get your money back, rarely will you ever do that unless you sell it to someone which i personally dont do unless i know of a friend who wants it. but even then, they are picky about prices and end up trying to haggle the price. i just trade shit in, use it towards new games and get promotions on that too. you can get like 50-80% bonus credit doing so

    Most of the games I would want to trade in would still probably only get me like $5 anyway :o

    To what? I'm sure they lowered the original price on every game by 50% to offset this.

    Side note, has anyone seen Gamestops renamed to Game Trader? I've seen one so far.

    Never. The most I've seen (besides rare games) is 30$ for games like modern warfare 2.

    Shit, I've seen newer games go for $37+ on Amazon and that store credit can be used on a fuck ton more than games.
