Default Bringing games back to gamestop...

I have many 360 games I don't play, and I very much would like to get rid of them to buy Fallout 3, Gears of War 2, and Mirror's Edge.

Games I want to trade in for money are...

Lego Star Wars
Oblivion
Call of Duty 3
Call of Duty 4
Gears of War
Army of Two
Crackdown
Viking: Battle for Asgard
Chromehounds

Really, I don't play any of these anymore.

Do you think I could get enough money from these to get GOW2, Mirror's Edge, and FO3??

Not likely imo. They get pretty cutthroat with their trade-in prices.

If they have any scratches they'll likely take off for that. It's likely they'll take off more for any missing manuals and/or cases.


If you can catch them o some of their specials days, some games can earn more for being turned in.

Just glancing at your list
I'd say you'd get between $70-80 depending on the condition of the games. I'm just guessing though, I haven't been in there enough to see what (older) games are in demand right now.

Well, idk 'bout the discs but the games play all well and good, and the manuals are all still there.

The games are just boring and there's just nothing more I can do with em, and I'd rather move onto new stuff... :-\

local pawn shops trade differently based on condition, disc, and manual. Youll be lucky to see 7-8 let alone 5 if they are generic I dont want games. However there are some winners in there.

Those getting into gears of war 2 and havent played gears of war 1? WINZ

Army of two is still tangible.

If I were to estimate 45-60.00 MAYBE

Trade into Game Stop? Answer to that is FECK NO!

Seriously they give you next to nothing, your better off putting them up on ebay or amazon or something, but trading them in at Gamestop is a gross, utterly disgusting waste of money.

You can always take them in and hear an estimate.
