    are you adding the stars or do curse words automatically change?

    trade stores are **** like that. i took in a bunch of classic dvd's and got AUD$2 each for them. 30 quid is about AUD$90 i think... and for those games that's not hot. but it's a trade place, so, you know.... they're crap. better off ebaying them or putting them up in the trading post.

    Then why did you sell them?

    I went to EB games and I traded in excite truck, COD3 and 5$ and got Metroid Prime 3.

    No surprise, usually game stores rip you off when it comes to turning in games used or new. It's all about making a good profit. They buy it from you for $5, but then sell it for $9, making a $4 profit. Doesn't sound like too much, but it all adds up.

    Try selling games on eBay in the future if you feel ripped off going to these places.

    why didn't you say "no thanks" and ebay them? then you could've used that money for wii points. you could've gotten about $30 USD for just excite truck, not sure what the exchange rate is but i'm positive that it's more than 1.30.
    i'm not trying to sound like a jerk, but you do have the option to say no when someone's trying to rip you off. i know around me excite truck used goes for $45 at the game stores.

    i'd be surprised if you got more than $50. but i'm not sure. i think they list the trade-in value for some consoles and popular games on gamestop.com.

    edit: just checked the website, it has the trade value for some games but not the console. sorry. give your local one a call. :)

    Yep, we did a "tell my why you should get a GC" on another forum and gave it away for free (and Mario Party 3)! Felt good about the giveaway, and the potential trade value was pointless. :)

    I freakin hate that crap! I was trading in some of my old PS1 games and i got diddly squat! I had Megaman 8, the disc was SPOTLESS and SCRATCHLESS and the manual was CRISP and i got less than US$8for it (can't remember). I even have my original Final Fantasy 7, 8, 9 and the discs are MINT. I would never trade them in because over a 1000 hours of my life went into those games, but I know that I won't get crap for them IF i wanted to trade them. I just keep the games that I buy or give them to someone I know.
