I can't see many consoles being taken back unless someone is desperate for cash

Loving next gen!

Goodbye GTA, hello Dark Souls 2

Yep. Been looking for a good chance to dump GTA 5. Though I'll wait for Gamestop to match...I can't give Walmart my business without feeling dirty.

Best buy is giving $28 for GTA and $28 for ghosts. walmart offers 16.80 for ghosts. I will not be using walmart for game trades at all.

was only looking at last gen, clearly walmart is offering better value for xbox one and ps4.

why would they buy X720 if they cant sell out old stock, or can they?

Calvin_ISA1727d ago

They're buying "X720" because they obviously would make more money reselling used systems at a little below the MSRP. The (I'm going to guess they will sell for 450 or so) money gained from each console would be a sweet bonus. It's like double-dipping. They've already sold you the console and made their money, now they'll buy it back for less and make the money again.

They can't sell it at $450, they already have the Xbox One Titanfall bundle at $450. Walmart is crazy to pay close to $400 for it.

Wagz221727d ago

Or desperate for a ps4, I've taken in 4 trade ins so far towards a ps4 in which you get $450 for the Xbox one. So usually people have $50 extra with a ps4 cause you dont have to pay tax if you use trade credit.

ifistbrowni1726d ago (Edited 1726d ago )

im half tempted to trade-in my xbox 1 at that price. If i ever wanted another one, i could just pay $60 more and get a $450 version with a free game.

I haven't played my x1 since dead rising 3. TitanFall was a flop in my eyes, returned it 1 day after owning it. I still have hopes for a Halo re-boot.

I just dont know what i'd get with the $390.

Wait a second. It's Walmart! I can get anything! Perhaps a 2nd ps4 controller to start.

This confuses me.

KontryBoy7061726d ago

or they regret keeping the XB1

TheRedButterfly1726d ago

Saw someone trade in their PS4 today. (Might have been a return, I'm not sure - I don't work in customer service.)

Food for thought.

Wow $390 for an Xbox One?? That's pretty good!!!

mrpsychoticstalker1727d ago

I smell stealth trolling on your post Mr. insomnia_84

Most of us gamers will never sell our Xbox One for $390. in fact we don't want to sell it!

drakulus1727d ago

I agree. I didn't pay 500 bucks for this thing to take it for $390.

Ratty1727d ago

I understand not wanting to sell it but it's still a good trade-in price if you wanted/needed to for some reason.

curtis921727d ago

I'm honestly thinking of it... mainly because the games I want are on both systems and if they look and play better on one then why do I need the other? That's why I mostly played 360 last gen.

KonsoruMasuta1727d ago

I know. Bring it in, add 10 bucks to it, and you can get an even better console.

DEEBO1727d ago

Yeah store credit but cash trades is were GameStop wins because Walmart doesn't have them but Walmart gives a better trade credit for games and you can buy more at their store.

Say you want a new led TV and you got some games you want to get rid of.I did this at bestbuy and pickup a plasma TV.

us_army1727d ago

Also remember the GS trade-in values have no promos included, which they are always running. Members of their loyalty program automatically get a 10% bump on all those values, and if they are traded to a pre-order of an upcoming new game, you usually get an extra 30% as well, totaling an extra 40% on value. So not bad all around.

Moms will sell systems for groceries.

WeAreLegion1726d ago

You trade games and systems in for Walmart gift cards. That means you can buy groceries with it. So, that's what's going to happen to a lot of people, especially those on welfare.
