Wow. I might do this and I don't even own a PS4. I'm getting one for Xmas though.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   496d ago
a man sold his copy for $100 on ebay (steelbook edition) so no regrets skipping on this lol
guitarded77  +   496d ago
I will definitely do this.

EDIT: One thing I'm curious about is how the offer runs from the 27th if the game doesn't release until the 29th. I'm wondering if they're just marking it as a week long promotion, or if they're gonna start selling TLoU on the 27th.

I'm ready too. I already have it pre-ordered through newegg, but this is definitely a nice deal for those that have the PS3 copy and want to get the Remastered version on PS4.
Crazyglues  +   497d ago
Now this is a Sweet upgrade for all the people who already bought the PS3 version of the game and wanted a sweet upgrade that was not full price...

-Really Nice Deal..

awesome deal for those looking to upgrade, this is what i always say wait and see approach. people were whining about the stuff there isn't any deal to upgrade towards ps4 version

we can expect the same for GTA5

i see TLOU doing greats numbers on ps4(do y'all think 2-3 million is achievable by end of 2014?)


another HD remake(GTA5) IMO will do 5-10 million
Jaqen_Hghar  +   496d ago
If this version hits 3m and it ends up at 10m lifetime that would be pretty crazy for a new IP
Xer0_SiN  +   497d ago
this is a legit deal. i went to my local gamestop and talked to my boy whos the manager. he looked up the promos and sure enough it was there. he told me its only a one week promo though. from sunday to sunday, running through the week that its released. if you think about it, its a heck of deal.

Doh! Traded it in a couple of weeks ago for $15 thinking that if I wanted too long everyone would be trading it in and then I wouldn't get anything.

LAWSON72  +   497d ago
What are they desperate and can't move enough preorders? At least that is what PS fanboys say when Xbone gets promos at GS so it must be true. Right?

Anyways that is very solid promo and I don't know how it favors GS. Not only would they have a huge supply of TLOU on PS3 but the demand for that version will be much lower and they would need to sell it for more than $25 which lowers the demand even more. There is also a chance a PS3 version sees a price drop this holiday.

Edit: what's the matter PS fanboys. You don't recall this

Hypocrisy at its finest.

No Genius, this is for those who owned the PS3 copy and want the PS4 version but not willing to pay $50.
LAWSON72  +   497d ago
But what about those last gen console owners who wanted to trade up to Xbone but not pay $400. Is that not the same thing? Genius?

I get it if it is a promo for PS4 it is to be generous but if it is Xbone it has to be out of desperation. Just like how Sony is rainbows and sunshine while MS is the devil.

uptownsoul  +   497d ago | Intelligent

Wow, are you really conflating 2 different discounts…

1) How does a Gamestop deal prove Sony's desperation?

2) Microsoft themselves are the ones offering $100 deal if you trade in PS3 or Xbox 360 toward an Xbox One purchase &&& Microsoft themselves are the ones offering $75 gift cards to 360 owners who buy an Xbox One.

3) To my knowledge Sony has offered NO discounts on it's PS4 console. Every discount I've seen has been a retail based discount (gamestop, Amazon, Best Buy, etc), not a Sony based discount.
PinkEye  +   497d ago
Sony should have gave a discount for owners of the ps3 DIGITAL version. Even gamestop knows that the price is a hinderance for those who already own the ps3 version; thus giving a discounted incentive. I will never buy another digital game from Sony again. You never know, they might drop the Remastered Plus Super Alpha Directors Cut edition in a few months after release. I'll buy the disc, USED.
Why o why  +   497d ago
Yeah lawson. . .Sony are desperate to kick ms's ass in their own turf for 7 months straight. . . I mean, that's what the other side would say init. . . Smh

Good deal for those who can take advantage. It would be nice if sony offered a similar deal

This is a gamestop promo.
Not a sony promo.
DanielGearSolid  +   497d ago
To be fair Sony fans didn't say that after the first X1 promo

It was after a few consecutive X1 promos by GS
Kavorklestein  +   497d ago
Yoou ever think that gamestop has an agenda too? I'm sure GS wants to see both consoles thrive just like MS and Sony do. They see the importance or competition, and there's money to be made regardless of platform.

Everybody should just shut the fuck up and say:
'Oh wow! That's a pretty good deal for Xbox fans!'

And on the other side of the fence, say: Oh wow! that's a pretty good deal for Playstation fans!'

Why get all nitty gritty all the time with guess work about why or how these sale are implemented? WHY? It really doesn't affect your ability to pass a kidney stone does it?

Basically, unless it's gonna save you, or your friends and family some money, don't get mad about sales events. It just makes people look like they are concerned with a little healthy competition and see sales boosting incentives as a threat to the blissfully ignorant mindsets that so many fanboys on BOTH sides have.
MegaRay  +   497d ago
Haha, too true. I remember reading all those negative comments about XB1 deals :)
No_Limit  +   497d ago
LOL, I just remember this recent article:
GameStop Hosting Xbox One Weekend: Pushing Microsoft’s Console Hard With Discounts and Deals

Some of the quotes from that article were just plain trollish, I might add:

"Or because the Xbox One price drop isn't selling as many units as they hoped... "

"This whole promotion with GameStop reeks of desperation. You know that used car salesman on TV so so so desperately trying to pan you his pathetic lot of cars. Well this is GameStop trying to sell you there lot of pathetic xbones. "

"Why aren't we seeing PS4 sales? Is Xbox really doing that badly that it needs all this pushing?? "

"So why haven't they had a push like this for the PS4 ? Because the PS4 doesn't need some lame sale. it laughs at the fool who thinks it does..... "

Anyway, I commented on that article and I got slaughtered for defending the Gamestop does this all the time for every console and if you look at my comment below, I am happy they are doing it again, this time for a PS4 product. I just can't stand the 2 face gamers and their hypocrisy.

@LAWSON72 - You're going to lose bubbles for criticizing, no matter what it is, dude. I've lost bubbles over criticizing Mario Kart 8, Sony's Music Unlimited service, and Halo 4.

You can't win with these people. If you're going to be even slightly critical, be prepared to lose bubbles. It's unfortunate, but true.

Are you guys really this worked up about losing bubbles on an video game internet site? hahahahAHAHAHAHahahhaAAH!!!!
GamingSinceThe80s  +   497d ago
It's $25 store credit which is like maybe like $10 to GS.Plus you have to trade it for a new copy of the game which they pay $20 to $25 tops for.Then they sell your PS3 copy of The LOU for $35 to $40.They will make plenty of money on the deal.When I worked for GS I also learned they make thousands a month per store selling all the ad display in store space.And last time I checked the one by me had a ton of it for TLOUR.
ThatEnglishDude  +   497d ago
That's right - generalize and accuse an entire community of people who own a piece of plastic to justify your argument on a completely unrelated topic with the sole reason being to cause bickering amongst a group of people behind a computer screen.

Good job!

Going back on topic - it's nice to see GameStop give people a cheaper alternative to play the TLOU:R.

That would maybe apply if many of us didn't always see so many of the same exact people on this site acting hypocritical.
Kavorklestein  +   497d ago
Agreed. It is nice to see Gamestop give a discount or incentive, even tho if Sony was going to be honest, they should have informed people of their intention of releasing TLOU on PS4 a lot sooner, especially before they released Left Behind.

Rockstar should have been honest and up front too, especially with desperate PC gamers who wanted to know if they could expect a PC version of the game.
legionsoup  +   497d ago
First off, don't lump a vocal minority to a group of people. We're not all like that. I have all of the consoles, and I happen to enjoy my Sony consoles the best. Does it mean I hate my other consoles? Heck no! I wouldn't have bought them if I hated them.

Secondly, this is a deal for one game by one store. Independent of Sony. The Last of Us is still selling like crazy. It just reached 7 million, which is pretty impressive for a console exclusive. I don't think it needs help.

It's just a good deal. Why are we having this argument? Why not, you know, talk about the sweet deal, rather than kick up a flame war (for no reason whatsoever).

This coming for someone who makes stupid comments all the time. On another note I've heard from friends that are sony loyalist that it's a good game and even had a few say that naughty dog sucks. I for one think they make decent games and this is a great deal for fans and I'm happy for you guys. I just hope that gta gets discounted if not I won't buy it even though I didn't buy it on last gen console because I knew what rock star was going to do.

wonder if I can trade in the ps3 copy without a case and still get this. I want to keep the steelbook from the ps3 version for the remaster version
No_Limit  +   497d ago
Actually, all Gamestop cares about is the quality of the disc..As I traded in multiple games without the actual case and still got full credit for it. You will need to put the disc in just any old plain DVD or Bluray disc case without the sleeve and it should work.
vickers500  +   496d ago
I don't think you even have to have a case for it. A while back, I asked them if trading in the cases to a few games I was about to trade in would affect the value in the slightest, they said no, so I just brought in the discs (kept the cases just in case I ever changed my mind later on down the road about the games, could get a cheaper price on a disc only copy of them) and they took them.

Called up my local Gamestop and spoke to the manager. She didn't know anything about this.
admiralvic  +   497d ago
"She didn't know anything about this."

To be fair, there are a good number of employees (be it manager or lower) that don't even know what deals they're currently offering, much less know of future deals. Like I went to Walmart the other day to do a game trade in and went to customer service to ask where would I go to do that. The manager over there claimed Walmart didn't do game trade ins (ignoring the fact that the store did do them, have been doing them for months and there was a huge picture in the weekly ad saying 50% bonus trade in with preorder of Madden...) and I was confusing them with GameStop. Not saying this is true, but I am saying that finding uninformed employees is fairly easy. Especially if they were told to feign ignorance on the subject.
Yo Mama  +   497d ago
Oh, I totally agree. I'm not saying that it's not real. Just stating that my local Gamestop didn't know about it yet.
Soldierone  +   497d ago
Will it be 25 dollars even if you don't have the case? I got the collectors edition and would like to keep the tin case :P

Most likely. Just call your local store and as to verify.
Wagz22  +   496d ago
Yea your good man. We don't need the case just the game. I'm doing the same cause I got the post pandemic edition and I'm not trading in that case ever haha
The_Devil_Hunter  +   496d ago
I was thinking of doing the same thing but i realized that the collectors edition disc is also different to that of the standard edition of the game.
Soldierone  +   496d ago
And there goes that idea! I didn't realize that at all, thank you for pointing it out haha!

(Not being sarcastic, I honestly didn't realize it :P)
Moe-Gunz  +   497d ago
If true this may be the only time I ever trade in a game.
GasTankKiller  +   497d ago
I have the PS3 version but never finished the game. I know, I know I should have finished, and I should just play it on PS3.

I just use my PS4 way more then my PS3 because its in my man cave. Whereas my PS3 is in the living room where the kids always are. So I most likely will take full advantage of this limited deal.

i dont know if i gonna trust this one coz last time i asked gamestop they told me $12 is the trade in value or the last of us ps3.
JustInTlME  +   496d ago
Right…..but that was trade in value towards anything and wasn't a specific promo enticing people to pick up a specific game for a specific console…

It's basically just 100% bonus. Which Best Buy did all the time.
