Battlefield 3 - Page 497

post #14881 of 16243
Great games last night with the crew. I joined lazy’s 600 ticket firestorm and decided not to stay. Went solo a few rounds here and there. Then I found a Dice Rush popular server and it began from there. Lazy and harp joined my on me, then a bunch of other people joined. Excellent games with the opposing team. We won some and lost some, but man were they tough though. The last match, attack Strike on Kirkland, I spawned on Duke on the top level of “A” and armed the last crate and won the game with 5-4 tickets left. Anyone have the battle log on that match? I forgot the clan name of the other team.

Hey guys, heads up! Gamestop is doing 50% extra on ALL game and console trades, with no need to renew your PU card.

Only runs until 7/28. Go, go, go!

What that hell does that mean? I see that the trade in value for slim xbox dropped $30. I should trade mine in asap!

Dammit. I just renewed and was gonna trade in 3 more consoles today. Looks like they dropped the values of everything to counteract the 50% increase. Lameballs

Now the question is due they re-raise the trade in values once the 50% bonus is complete on 7/28? Or do the values stay low.... Anyone have experience with this.... I'm looking at you Spyder

Shows the price of a slim as $165 for me. That is tempting. I have close to $300 on store credit now. If I do that no more Xbox though. Still have a couple games to complete but I may just cut my losses and build up more credit.

Yea, Im on the same boat Nexus. Last week they were giving $195 for xslim. Like I said, my live account expires in August and this deal is up to 7-28, I think it going to work perfect for me.

4 months no video games? You guys are stronger than me. If I got rid of my systems now that would mean I would have to watch movies like Oz the Great and Powerful with my wife, FOR 4 MONTHS.

Dammmit, looks like gamestop has caught on. Gave them a call this morning. The new base value for 320 gig slims is $110, opposed to $165 just two days ago.

Base value for 4gig slims is $75, compared to $105.....

Best get those consoles traded in ASAP.
post #14889 of 16243
Trade in values typically go down when a bonus like this (meaning one that anyone can do, not just those renewing) is on then back up when it goes off. Good deal for those that don't have a renewal or have already used their one-time coupon. Bad deal for those that still have a coupon...MAYBE. Sometimes, the trade in value never goes back up, so there's a risk in waiting. Also, TiV can vary from region to region, state to state, and even store to store. Last holiday, I gave them so many that the values plummeted in our area just from my trades, while the rest of the country stayed the same.

I'll be going to GS in the next few hours, get some more details, and let you know.

Well, that says it all then, doesn't it? (I wa typing while you were.) Best to wait if you have a coupon for sure.

As of yesterday, TiVs hadn't changed. GS must have changed them this morning. frown.gif

Awesome, thanks. I was going to buy a 320 gig slim and two controllers this afternoon for $120.... was going to trade that in as well as a 4gig slim, 3 more controllers, blops 2, and a RROD 20 gig 360. On Sunday I thought that would get me close to $550 in credit, now it looks like I will get more like $400..... Oh well, total investment for the 3 consoles and controllers is going to be $240, I'll still make some decent credit back, but a drop that significant seems like maybe just maybe they will re-raise base values after the mass promo.

I might just trade in BLOPS 2 and the extra wireless controllers that aren't tied to a system, the values for those havent changed and if anything BLOPS 2 values will go down even more.

Not quite. Been firing up my PS3 to go through God of War and some others. BF3 came with my PSN+ as did Xcom. My PS3 is going nowhere. When the PS4 arrives, the 3 is going to the bedroom. It plays Netflix free without a subscription, plus offers bluray and keeps the wife happy. Use my old fat PS3 for this now but the bluray is busted.

The only regrets I'd have is missing out on the beta and not having a crew to run with till BF4. Though I did see Gamestop offered $20 for premium I think. I've got quite a few titles to finish in the meantime.

My Live expires in September just before the beta date that was given. My plan was to extend Live another month and try the beta before trading my 360 in. If I can do a 50% thing now I just might. Kind of sucks that I just traded another stack in Sunday. I'd have waited if I'd known this was coming.

I thought you were going to trade it all in. Have fun on the PS3 side, its going to be mighty quiet.

I've traded almost everything off. Got a few Kinect games, BF3, and maybe two or three games I didn't finish. The rest is gone. I plan on being completely off Xbox when my PS4 shows up. Just a matter of picking the time to ditch the remainder.

How are you getting more than one coupon?

Doubtful. I'm going to start from scratch on my free BF3, perhaps this week. With me around complaining about getting one-shot killed every 3 seconds, it's never quiet. Add Shmoopy to our mix, and the pity party is nonstop. biggrin.gif Where has Shmoop been anyway? I miss his rants! smile.gif

I'm thinking more like late 2015. I told you guys I'd get the One when my gamerscore got to 100,000. Sitting at 78K right now, so it might take that long to go through all my 360 games. Of course, that's about when BF5 should be out, so who knows? Sadly, it doesn't look like we're ever getting Bad Company 3. frown.gifmad.gif

Oh, and for everyone else, don't let Lazy fool you. He's getting 3 Ones (one for the living room, one for his office, and one for his garage...maybe one for the toilet too?) and at least one PS4. Unfortunately, not all of us have this kind of cash lying around. I went through his games list and I've never seen anyone with more games with 5 Gamerscore, which means that he's buying these games, playing them for 5 minutes, and never playing them again...although there were a lot of games like Dance Central, Dance Party, Kinect Fruit, etc. eek.gif

His rants are the best. He'll be ranting and then being the MVP of every round with a positive K/D

So the GS trade in doesn't require a coupon at all for another 50%?

I'll just use the 50% promo they are currently offering and stash my Pro coupon. I renewed my Pro membership for another year and got another coupon. Apparently you can renew your membership further out then just the current year and get the 50% coupon again.

Will be quiet unless I pick up a headset or get drunk....

Wow...just got a call from GS personally inviting me to the 50% trade in deal. Wasn't prerecorded or anything. I feel warm and fuzzy now. biggrin.gif

So you will be back when BF5 comes out? They why leave now?

I never tried to fool anyone, I have said many times that I will own both systems. Just not BF4 for both, even though I preordered for both only one will be kept. I will own multiple XB1s as I play in multiple spots/locations. The DS4 being bigger still wont make me like the controller anymore than I do now. If the Cronus device works on the PS4 and with the XB1 controller then you could very well see me switch sides but as of right now that doesnt look it will happen. Also Sony's promise of the online being better means nothing to me as well. I want to see/try it first before purchasing PSN+. For me right now MS is the better option for this gen consoles so I would naturally hope it will be the same going forward. I know MS did a 180 on some stuff but to be honest I didnt care about it as I liked the first option better. My only downfall would be playing xbox while on vacation, just looks like I will need to get a cheap internet plan so I can play. But in the end MS provides the better gaming experience and if they can keep what they have and just add to it, thats just icing on the cake for me.



Yes I know I have a lot of games, mostly arcade games though. I do play each game for more than 5 minutes, I am not one to chase achievements so I never pay attention to what I need to do to get them. I just dont finish all of them. Also I do realize that I am fortunate enough to be able to spend a few thousand in one month to support my video game habit and I try not to be a snob about it either.


As for Shmoopy, he was around the other night with us. Who has been MIA is Brianbat. I miss his rants about us stacking up our squad perks.

No, as of today, they are doing a 50% bonus on everything, no coupon needed. But they also dropped the base value of consoles and I am assuming some games by about 30-50% as well.
post #14907 of 16243
Well I traded in a couple systems, but I held on to one of 'em & BF3, so I'll continue to play.

Been watching game trailers this morning... damn Destiny, The Division look good. Now I understand what some of you have been talking about. Previously I had been ignoring all the new game release hype. I think I'll be playing more of those persistent world type games on next gen than BF4.

Check out Elder Scrolls Online, Cyberpunk, Mad Max, even Killzone looks good. I can't remember the rest my head is spinning from all the shinies!

I was thanked for my PS4 purchase made in full. I'm guessing their fishing for xbone sales as my trade in would get enough to get one. wink.gif
