correction: buy any game for $9.99 + TAX and 2 eligible games and sorry for misleading
this title is misleading first you have to trade in two eligible games
Yeah, and then it's not even mentioned in the description either.
Click on "behindgames.com +" and downvote this website so they can't pull this crap again. We have no time for journalism like this.
And its all new games people probably bought for $60 each, so for $129.99+tax worth of your games you're getting a $60 game. Better off selling those games on ebay or craigslist, you'll get more than $60 easily.
So Xenoblade is on the list. Trading it in would value it at $25 technically. But you sell it for $90. I'm sorry GameStop may as well just put a middle finger on their receipt and leave a turd in your bag.
Yeah that is a total rip-off, since gamestop is already making boat-loads of cash off of xenoblade
only actual deal here is if you trade in sports titles because those will lose value very fast every other game on the list they stand to make a nice amount of profit
Same Metroid Prime Trilogy. Almost any of those games would net you more if you tossed them up on eBay.
Well IF someone read more than just the title they would know that....It's not gamestop fault that people are ignorant, they have ran this promo before so common sense would dictate that there is a list of eligible titles you have to trade first.... Hell the article clearly has the list of eligible titles, lord forbid they not want everyone's 10 cent trash games with no box, or jizz/Soda/Cheetos dust covered box and discs scratched to hell
i did read it how the hell else would i be able to point out the title is misleading? and its not common sense if you havent seen the promo because i dont constantly go to gamestop or their site..noone even said its gamestops fault so your comment is irrelevant
I'm getting sick of people using misleading headlines to troll for hits, and I'm getting even sicker of people like YOU defending them for doing it!!!
You can still have an eligible game that's covered in jizz and soda. The last part of your post makes no sense.
I dont think anyone on this site treats their games like that...
So everyone LOVES Gamestop when we are looking at an all digital future. But after thats changed we go back to screw you Gamestop! Me thinks there's alot of crazies on the internetz
I say screw Gamestop! I want a digital future but on our own terms. It's the consumer who controls the market. We proved that with the recent events at Xbox.
I support gamestop, how else will you sell games and by used in an all digital world, even next gen only has 500gb, i just downloaded unchrted 3 and it was 40gb.
I was so excited and ready to run to Gamestop, but then I actually read the article. WTF man, I was about to leave my kid alone so I could buy a $9.99 game at Gamestop. FN misleading article. LOL!
Thank God for misleading titles then, lol.
Cause it was hard to figure out that there was a list of titles that you had to be trading to get that game for $9.99...They've run this promotion before, common sense should have told you that...
Why are you trolling this article?
Downvote this site!
This is BS first not every gamestop will allow this deal! I went to two in my area and the only game allowed was the last if us! In the fine print on GS website subject to manager approval! Such false advertisement!
Ummmm Gamestop is a corporate company, when they run a promo like this it is the same across the board in EVERY location....That subject to manager approval is at the end of EVERYTHING GS does, and really means nothing....But they have to put things like that and the trades must be in full working conditions because morons bring games that look asstacular then can't grasp that IF it needs to be refurbed than NO it will not apply.... Instead of taking in all your trash you probably could have saved yourself time and looked at the list of eligible titles....It's not just the Last of us, you just obviously took in all your trash ass 10 cent games.... Just cause you don't know how to read doesn't mean that it's false advertisement...Simple reading comprehension would have saved you the time.
It's not false advertisement if it's there in the fine print.
meh... you have to trade 2 games... Misleading title. Vote down this website.
How did this make it to publishing?
lol you ask that like N4G has a reputation for any sort of good filtering
yo i made a legit article for pokemon news a few days ago moments after images and a video was released with a source a full description and good link and i got a negative comment no approvals and 3 reports... and this gets approved
Im ok with the article per say but really, the title is flamebait.
It Gamestop who give a shit. Robbing people money.
Lol trade-in two video games bought for $60 each and get a $10 game. Real value right their. Gamestop, your one stop for being ripped off.
Xenoboade Chronicles was on the list-- they're still trying to rip off the kiddies the don't know any better-- shame on them!
Click on "behindgames.com +" underneath "Read Full Story" Story Quality: WTF? Like this Website: No
yes, give us two games we will pay you $20 for and sell for $55 then gives us $10 more dollars and you can have any game you want after you have made us $80 pure profit aren't we awesome hey gamestop, when you start going the way of blockbuster in the next two years we won't miss you all digital is your demise, you have 3 years tops!
Excuse my language but hey you can go FUCK YOURSELF Gamestop! How about you quit robbing people on trade-in value? Like how fucking new is that list of games?? Not only that, but they're going to take TWO of them and STILL charge you another $10 ??? It seems to me like if you traded in any of those 2 games you should be able to buy another game and have some change leftover. Oh wow gamestop, thank you for being oh so generous. Give me a break. I hate Gamestop solely because they rip you off so much when you trade in games that aren't even that old.
that's not cool...
I like how gamestop put xenoblade on there for basically 25 credit when they're selling it for 90 and also ebay can fetch you 90.
even if there was a sale like that, I would never support gamestop and their damaging practices
anyone that gives metroid prime trilogy to gamestop is retarded, worth like 80 bucks on ebay
So I trade in 2 $60.00 games and then can buy one for $9.99 + Tax? No thanks I'll hang on to them.
Stop supporting GameStop.
For a limited time-Power up rewards members receive a collectible jar of Vaseline with sand preinstalled FREE with any eligible trade in on their used games and systems. F*CK GAME$TOP!!!
This Gamestop deal has been going on for a long time. I used it in June to purchase the Last of Us. Why does this get approved but other more worthwhile news stories get rejected?
So trade in 2 games that are still worth $60 then get any game in return for $10? Cause the website didn't really make that clear.
Someone needs some grammar lessons.
