Nothing new here. Remember the video of the guy who got COD MW early? He tried to sell it before release date unopened and they said they would give him $24 for it. That is the craziest evidence you can get for how crazy it is. $24 for a game not even released publicly yet unopened right in front of them "how much can I get for this?" and to hear $24.... I want to know who makes the rules for this..

They have the right to do this but its not right!

Game stop won't take a game that is unopened (wrapper still on). I just tried last week. They will tell you to bring it back "another day" with it opened. its against store policy. You can't even open it there to give it to them.

as much as these prices are low, $30 for a ps2 isnt bad
tachy0n  +   571d ago
you can easily get $50 if you post it on Ebay.

for a PS3 you can get $200+ (i sold my PS3 Fat backwards compatible for $250)

PSVitas are selling for $220+ also and most of them come with 8GB memory cards and accessories.

GameStop is the worst place to sell your stuff.

really? thats not bad.

i've seen 60GB ps3's going for up to $400 recently

Gamestop is instant cash that has to be resold for profit. Ebay will take longer, but you will get more money than simply pawning at at Gamestop. Got to weigh in whether you want fast cash for less or more cash for a longer wait (plus you have to pay to ship it). There are pros and cons for each depending on the situation.

^ The mark-up is consumer rape, plain and simple. They'll give you like ten bucks for your games and then sell them used for five dollars off retail. It's really crazy.
tisoyboy2  +   569d ago
Why so many disagrees? its true. If you have the patience, you will make more selling on ebay or Craiglist. You only benefit from GS if you wait for the 3/5/7 game trade bonuses.

$100 for a Vita that they can turn around and sell for $250? Ouch!
Skate-AK  +   571d ago
That's only if you are a Power Up Rewards member. My friend took his Vita with Modnation, Mortal Kombat, and Resistance and they only wanted to give him $60.

I would have told them to get real and walked to the nearest pawn shop.

"I would have told them to get real and walked to the nearest pawn shop."

lol... they couldn't care less. They just work there, they don't own the place.
ddurand1  +   570d ago
your friend is lying to you.

gamestop is essentially a pawn shop. they need to make money. they dont negotiate like pawn shops.

its a business.

they can't sell a used one for $250. Stop making stuff up.
Skateboard  +   571d ago
F that, Ebay.
R1CAN617  +   571d ago
Amazon.
Muffins1223  +   571d ago
You can get a better price on ebay
LOOK_AT_THIS_I  +   570d ago
I used to trade exclusively to amazon and now they have trade in prices like GameStop. .25 cents for ps3 game trade ins? I've got a 60gb backwards compat ps3 I'm thinking about unloading. Don't play the ps2 games anymore so I might as well unass it to someone who can use
ScytheX3  +   571d ago
lol, i sold them a broken ps3 controller missing battery, board is fucked, and the conductive film is ripped and they gave me $27 cash =) my own way of saying fuck you
one2thr  +   571d ago
Lol I did something similar...
nevin1  +   571d ago
On a quality standpoint, the PS2 is worth $1000s
Tetsujin  +   571d ago
I want Funcoland and EB Games back, at least they weren't as big of a ripoff; Gamestop where I live is the LAST place anyone goes to selling-wise, buy wise they do have some good deals but only if your pro 360 (Again where I live).
Zangalou  +   571d ago
if you are in canada or québec, come to Play N Trade/Gamebuzz, it's 135$ for the Vita only.
BringingTheThunder  +   571d ago
gamebuzz?
Zangalou  +   568d ago
gamebuzz is québec only but recently bought by playntrade

Gamestop: The place to sell your stolen systems from the hood!

lmao wow! Almost choked on that one...
Wolfbiker  +   570d ago
Why do people get bent on what gamestop is offering? No one is forcing you to go there, they will change when people stop selling them their Near new ps vitas for $100.
SilentNegotiator  +   570d ago
The Gamestop robots broke into my home and kidnapped me until I agreed to sell my items at Gamestop.

True story.

Gamestop is just a pawn shop with a specialty. No one has to like their offers. It's fast cash or credit. Gamestop has to pay far from retail to make money reselling it. It's that simple. If you'd rather sell it yourself to the end-user, cool, spend more time and get more money...welcome to capitalism.

i have a 40gb cechg ps3 that is still running but i want to upgrade to the newer one just so i can get warranty & peace of mind. I would love to sell my used ps3 on ebay for $200+ but my model has been selling for $130-$140 on ebay. Im willing to fork out $50 for a newer system but not $100+ oh well.
erick21093  +   570d ago
Burn it out and call sony telling them your ps3 fried. If you have no Warranty, they will offer you a new slim for $122 USD replacement I believe.. better than trying to sell it for more than what it sells now.
gobluesamg  +   570d ago
Amazon is usually very fair with their trade in prices even though you don't get cash. I try to never step foot inside of a Gamestop! I did get Mass Effect 3 for $20 there though.
