So ther i was, having my money and 6 games with me, hoping that i could trade them in gamestop for the trade-in offers.

I wanted to do the deal, with Alan Wake and Red Dead Redemtion.

But none of the games (except DJ Hero) could be traded, because they were on a list of games that was'nt "Trade-in" offers, what the heck Gamestop!!?
i think that is lame...

Here is a Link with the list of games, that Gamestop not taking in, for the Trade-in offers:

Now i have one problem, i going to get RDR in gamestop (and that is the last time im buying anything from there) trading in COD:MW2 and DJ Hero.

But where am i going to get Alan Wake from? (looking for Limited Edition)
I want to Pre-Order the game, so where is a perfect place to get it? on the internet of cause :)

oh..a Region free Pre-order bonus would be nice, every site i visited is UK Only :/ (Bright falls bonus pack and avatar T-shirt)

Thanks :)

*Edit* The Alan wake was the problem, not RDR!

Trade them in for red dead redemption and receive an extra 15% trade in credit for red dead redemption.

There are no active trade in offers for Alan Wake at gamestop corporate decides all that stuff. Corporate has been making some decisions I personally don't agree with (walk into your gamestop and you notice the walls looking any different lately?)

There are obvious ways to cheat the system like put all your games on RDR get the extra value for the trades and then put it on Alan Wake, tada.




Also your sig is too big.

That's one big list of things they won't accept.
Some make sense since they couldn't sell them for more than a few dollars, but some really don't make sense, like Silent Hill, you se that preowned and it's still pretty pricey compared to other preowned stuff =/

Wow.

Alot of those games were really good at some point and some still are too. I probly would've bought some of those used if they were a good price.

We're still taking pre-orders for Alan Wake Limited Edition at my GameStop, so I don't know why they're telling you they're not.

lol gamestop never makes it easy. Its only newer release titles. We are running a 30% more trade in credit per game though. 40% with ur edge card which depending on what games they are allow u to come out better then gettin red dead or alan wake for 20 with certain trades. i traded in splinter cell and final bioshock 2and a couple reeeeeeally old crap games and got over 130 in credit. Paid for UFC 2010 and My red dead which was awesome.

I had a very similar problem with the gamestop near me and the store credit switching works great.
