Amazon only offering 25 cents for ‘Gears of War: Judgment’ trade-ins

StickSkills: "Earlier this week, we heard reports that Gears of War: Judgment undersold by a pretty large margin. With only 425,000 units sold in its opening month, compared to 2 million units for Gears of War 3, Judgment hasn’t exactly been a roaring success."

that is a horrible rip off for any game.

Godchild10202005d ago

And they say GameStop is bad, but I think its an error in the system and it should be 25 dollars or more instead of 25 cents.

thechosenone2005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

amazon doesent easily make errors like that, if that's the trade in value it's because they have a buttload of them in stock and arent moving much and they really don't want anymore so they offer a really low value to discourage trades.

and if u dont like the value that they're offering for a certain game they allow you to sell it through their site where u can set ur own price and they just take a small cuf from the sale. I've made a good amount from reselling game on amazon that it paid for more than half of my gaming PC I was building at the time.

Lol, I have a Leica S2-P and they only want to give me $1200 credit for it. They must be smoking crack for real, or they think I do. Ha!

guitarded772005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

I'd give $25 to someone... I have yet to play it. 25 cents is a joke.

PeaSFor2005d ago

if someone is willing to get 25cents(or whatever the price) for a game, then i have nothing against that, thats his own decision and he have to assume his choices.

LukeTVNow2004d ago

I was curious and called Amazon about it, and it's not an error. A customer rep put it much like thechosenone says, it's all about supply and demand. If there's no demand, they'll pay you peanuts.
GameStop actually comes out smelling like roses on this one. My local one was offering $21, provided it's in good condition.

not really sure how or why this is news. trade-in rip offs are nothing new? shall we report every bad value trade on

KwietStorm2005d ago

I think what they're trying to imply is how badly Gears sold.

admiralvic2005d ago

What you're probably seeing is an amount designed to discourage flips or a default amount till they decide a value. I know BB will not list games till they know how well they sold and what type of value the game probably has. Needless to say, it's probably an amount someone just typed in so they had a value for TIV. Similar to how BB listed (maybe it's still available) the Persona 4 The Golden Vita skin for $9.99 (though it's still free with purchase) or how Capcom listed the Biohazard Revo 3DS case for $50.

dcbronco2005d ago

Unlike Gamestop, Amazon goes up and down depending on their stock of a game. Once they sell of their stock the price will go back up. But they must have a ton of them. I once sold FIFA to them for $27 after missing out on a $34 offer. A couple of months later it was up to $32.

InTheZoneAC2005d ago

it's not a ripoff, it's just saying don't bother trading your game in, if you do then you're a complete idiot to take .25

Either this is an error in the system, or that game is doing terribly.

KwietStorm2005d ago

It didn't sell "great," but this isn't the first or second time Amazon has listed a .25¢ trade in value.

aquamala2004d ago

the trade in value was $45 (glitch maybe?) about 2 weeks ago, that was on sites like cheapassgamer, lots of people must have locked in at that value, now they must have more copies traded in then they expected, that's why the value tanked.

Urusernamesucks2004d ago

Sorry to break it to ya but its not the only gow that did awfull this year...

tristanwerbe2005d ago

Fake it showed 5 dollars for me

Lionheart3772005d ago

It's still saying 5 cents for me.

H2OAcidic2005d ago

It shows 23 cents for me. Maybe Tristan wishes he could get it for 5 dollars?

vitorizzo2005d ago (Edited 2005d ago )

it should be 5 cents ;)

RyuCloudStrife2005d ago

idk 1 cent for me, this game is crap confirmed!!

Aloren2005d ago

35 euros for me, the game is great in Europe confirmed !

stage882004d ago

Agree. The game is awful. Even 5 cents is too much.

spicelicka2005d ago

who the hell cares, only idiots trade in games to these companies. You could sell it for $30 easilyy on craigslist or ebay or something.

Kurt Russell2005d ago

Sometimes you want a bit more immediacy than craigslist/ebay.

Th3 Chr0nic2004d ago

if ur willing to sell for 120x less than its worth then you should really really give up the hard drugs. besides how much meth can you buy for 25 cents anyway.

spicelicka2004d ago


if you want immediacy, jut put in the extra $20 you think you're gonna save from the trade in credit and get what you want. You can always sell those used games after and earn back your $20 plus wayy more.

shammgod2005d ago

That's still too much for that boring game
