    I have Excite Truck but I basically never play this game anymore....grew boring pretty fast. Just wondering if Gamestop or EB would give me a decent amount of store credit for it if i went to trade it in to go towards another game.

    Thanks :)

    nah, you are better off selling it on ebay. Call the store and ask for trade-in values

    Yeah, i figured they sucked. I was thinking ebay, but Excite Truck is going for only around $20 and after Ebay costs its not really worth it.

    Does Gamecrazy do trade-ins?

    I know that GameSpot partially rips you off. For example, they'll give you $10 (£5) for a used GameCube. However, I will continue to suggest GameSpot over eBay any day. eBay charges you to sell on their site and there's no guarantee somebody will buy your product.

    My Advice: Try Craigslist (website) or Gamespot

    Ironically enough I just got back from gamestop... I traded in all my old ps2 games and 4 ps3 games. I got 93 cents (tiger woods golf from 2004 or 2003) to 19.50 for a splinter cell game for ps3. They had a deal going where if you traded in 5 or more games they added 30% to your total so I got about 75 dollars store credit and walked away with Zelda: Twilight Princess and Res Evil 4 for about 74 used. I'm pretty happy with it...

    Ironically, though they're owned by the same company, in my area, Gamestop is horrible with it's trade-ins, but EB Games is good. :/

    they will rip you off, around 20-27 dollars for a fifty dollar game.
    but they DO have the monopoly on trade-ins so unless you can sell it to a friend or have an ebay account then your gonna have to trade it in there or just keep it. i trade in games all the time, its a great system, they just underpay.. :/

    I doubt it. You could return a brand new game after playing it once and get 25$, but they'll sell you the "floor copy" of games (the ones they leave out to play) for$50

    Ya I took in some Gamecube games to trade and they offered me like 50 cents for each one. The Wii games they offered between $10-$20, and then they turn around and sell them for like $40-$45 used

    i traded in some PS2 games at blockbuster and got $4, $6 and $8 each for them. Not bad as I called other places like EBgames and they sucked at trade in values.

    Trade in values suck.

    I traded in Scarface, Red Steel and Super Monkey Ball for Metroid Prime 3: Corruption because they had a 3 for 1 deal on it. When they swiped them through the scanner i think the trade in values were $18, $16 and $12 so they had to bump them all up to $20. Worked out well on Red Steel though, i bought it used for $20, completed it and then got $20 credit for it.

    Oh gosh, never trade in your games at those places. I learned my lesson when I got $4 each for a bunch of games and watched the guy slap $19.99 and $24.99 pricetags on them immediately after.

    I recommend finding some kind of buy/sell/trade forum local to your area. If you're in Canada, definitely try Red Flag Deals...I've sold several Wii games for $40-$45 there. Sometimes people just want to save the retail tax, they don't mind paying a good amount if the games have been gently used.

    Gamestop is a little two-faced when it comes to trade-ins. I personally will not do it anymore. I had to trade-in my DS Lite along with 7-8 games and I only got about what you would pay for a brand new DS Lite. Serious BS! If you are curious about their trade-in value's just read this list:

    You will see how badly they suck!!
