Even at 50% extra, that is still 100% less than what they SHOULD give you! HA!

Oh goooddd. Instead of .50 cents, you'll get $1.00

/s

@zeee 50% of .50 cents is .25 cents. Making that .75 cents. Not a dollar. FAIL

zeee1244d ago (Edited 1244d ago )

Yes, you are right! I can't believe I made that mistake! Could probably have to do with the fact that I was in bed and sleepy and wasn't thinking straight. Still, thanks for correcting me there so let me do this again:

"Oh goooddd. Instead of .50 cents, you'll get $0.75

Are you saying they should just give you $50 for a game you paid $60 for? Do you not realize this is a business?

TheRacingX1244d ago

NO, but giving you $20 for a game thats a week old and then selling it for $5 less than a new retail copy is pure highway robbery. Gamestop WANTS you to dump your week old game, because giving $20 is more than likely still $15 less than paying the publisher for another new copy. thats why there's DLC included on the disc, online passes, crappy rehashes and very few new IP's and other assorted crap, thanks gamestop.

So you paid $60 for a game they should give you $40 for it ?

How does that make sense ?

greenmeanie1243d ago

They would still be MAKING $15 off the game, so how does it NOT make sense?

Furthermore, how does selling a $60 game used for $55 make sense?

And third, why is everyone defending Gamestop's shady business practices all of the sudden? I get it, business is business, sure. But getting ripped off is still getting ripped off. The point of my original comment is that trading a game in for 50% more credit is STILL a rip off. I think MOST sensible people would agree...

It should appeal to lazy or cautious gamers who don't wanna use Craigslist or Kijiji.

gamestop is a great store that i have always loved, i would have to buys like 4 brand new games to get twenty dollars worth

Starbucks_Fan1245d ago

Aaannd eBay is still better after fees

Johnny_Cojones1245d ago

During these promos I've gotten as much as $40 for a single game. They typically only give small amounts for old games that have much less resale value.
