i could only stomach little snippets of the very first one before i had to turn it off but ill say this, its no secret that they give you like 20 bucks for a brand new game and then sell it for 50 or 55, thats just their business i dont really have a problem with paying 5 or 10 less for something that just came out really, but the real problem lies in the games that have BEEN out that somehow remain at the 20-30 dollar range when they would only give you 5 or 6 bucks MAYBE 10 if you were to bring in for trade. thats the only bullsh*t to me, i mean they are making at the MINIMUM twice what theyll give you for older games.

Yup. Took a brand new, unopened MW2 for PS3 not long ago. Looked at the shelf and it was going for $50. They refused to give me store credit without a receipt, but he said he'd give me $10 for it. fu*kin idiot. I hope they go out of business.

Yeah, Gamestop is grimy but at the same time who you gonna go to? EBgames? Gamestop owns them too . Lets face facts, besides a pawn shop where else you gonna take your used Smackdown vs Raw 2006 or PS1 games? In the shiesty world of Gamestop they do offer good deals sometimes. Like I remember when UFC 2010 came out and you could get it for $20 if you traded in 2 games off this list they had. Luckily for me they were older games (Skate 2, UFC 2009) that I never played so I got UFC 2010 for $20 and got rid of 2 old a.ss games I'd never play again.

The thing that bugs me is Gamestop taking in used games and putting the plastic wrapper back on the case and calling it new. I bought a wrestling game (Smackdown vs Raw 2010). I had bought it the day it came out brand new but about 6 months later it broke so I went back to Gamestop to pick it up again because my friends and I played it alot. So I go there and they have the used version for $25 and the version for $30. For $5 I figured it was a no-brainer so I bought the new version of it only to find out it had some minor scratches on it :nasmad:. It left a sour taste in my mouth because I had heard of them doing this but never thought I would experience first hand.

I remember taking my Street f!ghter 4 to Gamestop for store credit and only getting $2 for it.. gave the guy the look like "I should just keep this sh*t and make my game collection look bigger. fu*k $2"

the secret is to bring a new popular game in and listen to see if customer want to buy it and sell em the game yourself. like for instance i brought in MW2 back when it was first comin out. GS wanted to give me like $25 but i sold it to some dude in there for like $45. and it works vice versa if you see someone selling a game you want ask em can you buy it. customers win

This, it's no different then pawn shops ripping you off, best buy ripping you off or any other corporate business.

it's fu*king business, i have been using GS since they were babbages and not once have i ever had a problem with them, the only people who seem to have a problem with them are uptight "gamers" who feel they rip off people.

it's a fu*king business.. get over it. if you sell yoru brand new 65 dollar game for 10 bucks that is YOUR fault, GS isn't the only place to sell your sh*t, they have to make a profit, there is a reason they are the leading business in video game sales and you people are on the internet bi*ching and make sh*t for money.


Also this guy is a bitter ex-employee, hes pissed for not getting a raise? 5 cents? boo fu*king hoo, have to force pre-orders? boo fu*king hoo, it's YOUR JOB, be glad you had a fu*king job when people couldn't get jobs.

this guy is nothing but a loser ex-employee who just a bitter nerd, does GS have sh*tty practice? name one retail store that doesn't.

Target, Toys-r-Us, Bestbuy, Walmart = all have sh*tty practices, are sh*tty to employees, pay is sh*tty etc.

At the Amazon trade in store. That's what I use. Just print out the UPS label for free and ship it to em and they give you gift cards.

They give the same amount as GS does with a power up card and bestbuy.

i mean it is a business. them making $5 bucks off a game is not gonna pay the rent, employees, and the corp fu*ks.

blame urself for being stupid enough to trade in a game there instead of selling it on ebay or craigslist.

u guys are idiots for being mad at em. you might aswell be mad EVERY store out there. i mean footlocker gets dunks for 30 bucks. they double em and add 10. starbucks coffee is like atleast $4, and it took em prob 35 cents to make it.
