I got 200 in credit today for my 320gb PS3, Not too bad.


That's very bad why not just save up instead of getting ripped with trade in's.


it's not really all that bad..on eBay they go for about $240 give or take. You account for ebay fees (listing, final value & paypal) and shipping costs, gamestop gave him about the same amount he would have gotten from eBay (give or take).

even if he sold it on Craigslist for $240, he still would have had to ship it and that generally costs about $10-$15, not to mention Paypal if that is how they paid. The difference really isn't all that bad really once you add in the convenience of getting it asap. Generally I don't stick up for Gamestop & their trade in values, but this one isn't really all that terrible.

When you put it that way it does look ok. I just never trade in my stuff anymore and just buy games or consoles I know I will want to keep forever in my collection.

in general, im the same way....only time I trade or sell is if I am upgrading (i sold my 120GB Elite so I could get the MW2 console and I sold my MW2 console to get the MW3) Basically lost 100$ each time, but that really isn't too bad, definitely got my hundred dollars worth as a rental fee over the course of a year.
