    good for game stop so they can sell a year 2 old used game for the discounted price of $54.99 while paying somebody $8 for the trade-in


    In all seriousness though, you can usually find physical copies of games at big box stores a lot cheaper than digital. Target for example I already get 15% off everything because of the red card and my daughter's employee discount, then they have sales all the time on top of it.

    Also



    spurraider21, Reck, apalisoc_9, you guys going to play Miles Morales and Horizon Forbidden West on PS4 or will you save them for when you get a PS5? Gotta think Horizon Forbidden West is going to run like complete dog on an OG PS4 / PS4 Slim though.
    In all likelihood, yes I will.

    Will the PS4 version be 60 dollars? I'm not one to obsess over graphics. If the games look as good as God of War 4, death Stranding type high quality, I really dont care for upgraded graphics.

    I'm not to keen on paying extra dinero for what would probably be a short ass game in Miles Morales. Imagine paying 70+ dollars on a 4 hour COD game too. outta here.

    thats true. target/walmart/best buy have those clearance bins, but thats not necessarily used games, but rather they're just trying to clear up shelf space for new games

    I'm going to miss Gamestop when they go under, there are often really profitable loopholes in their trade deals. I once used one to sell them my copy of Nioh 1 for like $80 store credit and just bought PSN cards. They had a trade-in deal in summer 2017 you could game to get a Switch + Pro Controller + Zelda BOTW for like $200 out of pocket by buying a few cheap games from Best Buy / Walmart / etc and then taking them out the wrapper and selling them to Gamestop used with these huge trade-in bonuses they were giving if you sold them 6+ games. Like you'd go buy Plants Vs Zombies 2 for $18 at Best Buy, take off the wrapper, and sell it to Gamestop used for $54 store credit.

    It's not a loophole if you have to buy a bunch of cheap games at store A then go to store B to make the trade work.

    Your local store must've been an outlier. They never presented me with 50 dollars of store credit at any point. They always tried to shove their powerup card thing every time when all I wanted was a simple trade.

    Gamestop and their shady business practices.

    I mean you should only be trading to them when they have good promotions going on. Most of the time the trade-in values are horrendous but their corporate must be nothing but re s because their national promotions often have ways to really game them. The last really stupid promotion they had was when they were shutting some stores down a few months ago and clearing out stock so you could buy a used XBox One X from those closing stores for like $130 and then go sell it to the Gamestop down the street for around $300 store credit after trade-in bonuses were factored in. Even if you wanted cash you'd still come out way ahead.

    Saw a guy buy a used copy of some game and sell. It back to the same store for like a 5 dollar profit. The place said he would do it, but only once
