I'm getting my ps4 pretty much for free

28 posts in this topic

Thought I would throw this out there. Gamestop has been doing all kinds of promotions lately with the +50% trade in. I traded in a good amount of my ps3 backlog that I know I won't get to (kept 10 games so it was just the least desired games). Got $107 credit for my PSP and 11 games. I'm currently up to $318 in credit and will finish and trade in enough to make up most of the difference.

I know most people don't like trading in old games, but I figured I would throw this out in case people might want to look into it. Make sure to upgrade to the plus membership and watch the website for when they offer good trade deals.

:hmm: I have a few gams I've platinumed and won't play again. I'm not in the US though. Wonder if GAME is as generous.

In that case I should be rich... but they aren't very generous here.  :angry:

Wow....you actually inspired me. I have a ton of games that I will never be playing again, plus some iPods, and my PS3. That should round up to about $200! This would make my life so much easier to get the $400 needed.

I have a few games like that.

The trouble is I have guides for them as well and they can't be traded in.

Looks like I will have to find another way to move them on

It's probably an old picture but right now I would definitely take that offer. All 3 games are old. And I can buy Fallout 3 for 10 euro. So I'd say that's a good deal.

Although I wouldn't call it free (look at all you've sacrificed!) it's exactly the same way that I've "upgraded" over the last couple of generations.  I'd love to have kept all those old systems, but the good lady would have my balls as earrings.

 

This time around though, I'll be keeping the PS3 as a backup Blu-ray / netflix / media box when I eventually upgrade to PS4.

You mean that she doesnt already?

I have always managed to hold on to my old Playstations.

I have an original grey one with 2 controllers and a box of games in the attic - God knows why.

I had no less than 4 PS2 models, 2 of which died and were dumped a few months ago, the third I gave to a brother and the final one I gave to my daughter as a dvd player / singstar device. It was the silver version of the original PS2 and she has had it for 5 years and its still going strong. I was in her house a couple of months back and turned it on - the old start up sounds and the weird square "crystal" formations brought back manys a happy memory.

I have had one PS3. I will hold on to it until I finally get around to making the step to the PS4. When this happens I will give the PS3 to the daughter with a HDD full of games to enjoy. Oh and that damn Singstar thing!

God forbid Gamestop tries to be a successful business by making a profit, lol.  And if you trade in 10 2007 games, of course you will only get a couple of bucks, they are old games.

I'm getting mine for free as well but I sold most of my ps3 games online and it's paid for my ps4 in full. Personally I think GameStop is a rip off to trade in your games. They offered me 25 cents for skidoo eu version. Ha what a joke, I got $30 for it off eBay

This, I sold a few games around 2 months ago and using the game(basically uks gamestop) trade in calculator they were going to give me £26 for like 7 games, so I individually listed them on ebay and just black ops 2 alone got me £20 and over £60 for all of them, it may take longer and the trade in option is much easier but the effort easily outweighs the 'robbing' you will get at trading it.

Precisely.  That's not free at all!

Well I have had some s***** trade ins too. I think I got $0.75 for Dante's Inferno. I got 2.50 for 4 ps3 games on one trade. I've been surprised a few times too though. Black Ops 2 was mentioned. I got 22 for that +50% got it up to 33. 14 for Phantom Hourglass. Descent trade in for SMT Devil Survivor.

It's not without it's risks. Worst case scenario you go in, figure out which ones are worth trading in, and keep the rest.

To all the people hating on game

Go to their local competitor in your area and get a quote for store credit on your trade ins.

Then go to game and show them what you've been offered.

Game will beat it by £1 if they don't already match it or beat it.

I've been doing this a lot recently and have easily got myself well on my way to a few ps4 games to go with my console...

Haha if they accepted PS2 games they'd give me a house in return.

whilst in game, trading my games in a lad came in with about 10 ps2 games but was told they are no longer taking them for trade in!

that's a great bit of trading in! I wish I had that many games but unfortunately not haha, I'm thinking for ps4 I'm going to keep my games instead of trading in so soon after purchase and see how many I accumulate :)

I don't think OP knows the meaning of 'free'.

GAME lets you see the trade in points online on their store - which is a great little feature if you ask me. :D
