    If you traded in all the extra crap you bought for the Wii would you still be able to afford the WiiU?

    I've got the motion+, classic controllers,nunchucks,wheel( all X 2) and four controllers.

    Gamestop and all the other shops take trade-ins. So if you tried to get rid of all that to get credit for the WiiU, would it get you anywhere close to enough to get the new console? I'm doubtful but...

    WASTE OF TIME. No store wants more overstock of used wii's, Balance Boards and gun thingies bombed out years ago, and the best you can do is games less than 1 year old.

    Sure gamestop will try to make your double-taped gamecubes sound like good trade as a Wii-U promotion, but lots of $1 and $2 offers on the oldest games.

    The best you could do is either selling online or selling to someone you know.

    Trading in at a store like Gamestop isn't worth it unless they have a special deal running. You would do a lot better selling them on Ebay or Kijiji or somewhere like that.

    I wouldn't trade in Wii remotes, balance board etc though because they'll all be compatible with the Wii U.

    You're angry with Gamestop. Why?
    You are willingly giving your money to them. If you're naive enough to fall for that, you're angry at the wrong person.
    They're one of the few stores that actually focus on and sell games, nothing wrong with that.

    There are NO problems with Gamestop. None.
    I've purchased the Zelda collectors edition disc for $20. Great for finding games.
    The ones with the problems are those who think they can make a profit by selling to a chain store.

    Haven't done so in... three years now?

    My hatred for Gamestop is their selection of employees on occasion, and their terrible deals for trading in games. Oh, and their tieing in with Gameinformer I disapprove of as well.

    No one is forcing you to trade with them.

    Gameinformer is a capable magazine. The only problems with them is that they hate good Wii 3rd party games and love the PS3 regardless of what it does. Ties with Gamestop aid it financially.( GamePro wasn't tied to a store. It is now dead.)

    Nor is anyone forcing me to hate on 'em. But I certainly do. :p

    Bias like the **** Gameinformer spews is what further cements the fanboyism of modern gaming. I don't feel the need to justify my distaste for GI (which is quite a bit more than Gamestop) for any reasons more than this.

    I take you don't mind the hypocrisy in that statement.

    What "****" is GI spewing that other mags or sites do not? If anything, my analysis showed it's one of the best of the best.

    Of course, all magazines for any topic have bias. But in the realm of gaming, I've found GI to be especially biased.

    *facepalm*

    You said it yourself. They refuse to give most Nintendo games a high score, and often give the lowest of scores for said Nintendo games of all the big reviewers.

    Save that facepalm for someone else.

    QFT:

    Nintendo games =/= 3rd party games. They love Ninty's 1st party games and even claimed Zelda was the most influential series of all time. It seems you have yet to analyze it for yourself and have misconceptions based on what others have said.

    I have finally figured out why MHTri was given a bad review. Turns out the reviewer never played the series before, and didn't expect the hardcore gameplay mechanics. If the one who did the preview reviewed it instead, the score would've been more fair.

    I doubt it. I barely purchased any "extra crap." I find my Motion+, zappers, and other controller worth keeping. I did purchase this sport attachments for the Wii controller, which were kind of a waste of money. But I doubt Gamestop would take that anyways.

    I read my friend's GIs for years, I know damn well how biased they are towards Ninty; 1st party and 3rd party. Moreso the 3rd party, but that's the worst kind of bias. Nintendo doesn't need every reviewer to give their games a high score, anyone who's not stupid or a hater knows their 1st party games are quality. Games like Mad World are the games hurt most by a gaming magazine's reviews; in other words, great games that aren't widely known about as well as being 3rd party.
