Did Gamestop Grow a Heart?

"Gamestop, a store known for ripping off customers with its ridiculously low trade-in values, has reportedly increased them. Some of these increases are significant, doubling from the old trade-in value and even allowing some savvy shoppers to make a profit off of their trade-in games (if they buy used copies from other sources)." (3DS, GameStop, Nintendo DS, PC, PS Vita, PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360)

They do this once or twice a year, it's a promotion.

Probably because of all the negative ads that obviously directed towards them from Gamefly.
"$9!? I just spent $60 on it?! "
Nerd rage ^_^

No, it never happened to me when I trade my games at Gamestop. But sometimes, one of my friend did got ripped off for an very low trade value on a PS3 game. He's not doing another trade again. I was shocked when he said that. For me, I'll continue dealing with Gamestop, but I'll sign up for Best Buy Gaming Zone later this month! At least they don't do ripoff like Gamestop does.

WHY would anyone trade to GameStop?!? Disc Replay, Goozex, or even Amazon are much better places to sell.
RioKing  +   600d ago
Probably because most people out there have only heard of Amazon off of those you listed. Usually people associate Amazon with buying, not selling.

Most people only really think of Gamestop,eBay, and Craigslist when getting rid of used games...at least here in the US. And honestly, I'd be willing to bet that Gamestop is the easiest route...which it just might be, just not the wisest ;)

Disc Replay is just as easy, if you live in the midwest. :D They give a lot more, too! AND they sell the newer used games that GameStop sells for $54.99 for only $42.99. Seriously. It's phenomenal. They're adding more stores every year, too.

If people think that game trade in values are bad, buy a new car, drive it around for a few weeks, get a real good couple of drives in, then take it and trade it in for a new one.

GS is a business just like any other. Just because they happen to deal with games doesn't make them a champion for the little guy.
