Anybody have an idea? I'm trying to get GTA IV.

Keep your PSP. It is not worth giving away a whole PSP just for GTA:IV. Just save your money over a few weeks and buy it.

WOw your going to trade in a PSP just for GTA4..

Agree with the above replies, dont be crazy and sell ur psp just for a game, unless of course you never ever use your psp! U should be able to trade acouple of games in to get gta iv thats the way i would go, hmmm or it may even be better to sell a kidney rather than my psp!!

Wow three replies and not one answer to my question. Look, I'm not keeping my PSP, and I really want GTA IV. Plus it's not like I'm only getting that, I'm getting other cool stuff as well, like Xbox LIVE and maybe some used games.

*Wenkz* I hope you really think over again about it...

Well the trading price where I live in the US is $60 which really sucks you would be better off selling it on craigslist of ebay.

Gamestop will give you $50 which is less than GTAIV so don't even bother.

Wow, it's been so long since I've been into the whole trade-in thing. I've forgotten how cheap GameStop is.....

As for right now, call me crazy, but I just might do it. And I will have enough since I have some cash and a few games to trade in as well.

As someone else mentioned, Craigslist (www.craigslist.org) or eBay will get you great prices for the PSP, particularly if you make a bundle with all your other stuff (chargers, case, games, movies, MemorySticks, ...). I see $100+ for a simple bundle very often. The nice part about Craigslist is that a) the person is usually geographically close enough to do the deal in person and b) you don't have to wait 7-14 days to get your money.

I'd never do a trade-in, unless you have no patience and don't need the money (in which case, why trade-in at all? ;)

Um, forgot to mention that I have 4 games (GTA LCS, Twisted Metal, Daxter, and Burnout Legends) plus a 1 GB memory stick to go with them. Plus $20 cash. What do you think the total will be then?

Okay, listen, dont be stupid and take the easy way out by trading your psp into gamestop. For all that stuff you mentioned, you would easily get 130+ dollars from ebay.
#14 Posted by vader1231231 (212 posts) -
Actually, hell, you could sell those games and the mem stick on ebay (but keep your psp) and come out with at least 40$$$

It's a bad idea to come on the psp forum and talk about trading in your psp because psp owners are already hyper sensitive about people bashing the system and they take the idea of trading one in as an insult. So they'll inundate you with negative feedback. That said, they are right that a simple craigslist posting might net you twice or triple the cash. But if you're intent on trading it in wait till Gamestop offers their extra 20% special on system trade ins...thats help a bit and that's what I did with my extra 360.

theyll probably give you like 50 bucks if your going to a gamestop, but as stated already, i would avoid sellign it if possible

Wow, you are right, considering that every 7 or so replies consists of only 1 helpful answer to my question. Impressive, guys. Anyway, I would definitely prefer GTA IV over an entire PSP, so hopefully that dents the negative feedback. A few more answers to my question would definitely be of great help to me, and remember all of the other stuff that I'm trading in with it (in my response prior to this one):

gamestop doesn't even have a trade in value list for the psp on their website anymore. besides, why trade in your psp which has many uses for gta 4 which you'll beat in less than a week and will be collecting dust on your shelf. go donate blood, the right place will give you about 50 bucks your first time.

its an insult to the psp if u do that

Trade it in/recycle it at Best Buy. They will give you at least 75 bucks. Go check it out, Google, Best Buy Recycling. I hope it helps, don't resort to Gamestop. I only BUY games there, don't sell stuff, please. But if there is no Best Buy near you I guess you would have to go with Gamestop. Your games are all Greatest Hits, so they would probably sell for $5-$7, and the memory stick will fetch up to $15, if you lucky. I'm a PSP owner, but now that Patapon, GOW, CC:FF, are all out... I'm like, "can i haz mur psp gams plz?"

At least my 360 is still kicking.

You shouldn't revive old threads, and i have doubts gamestop will accept a system that doesn't work. You should call them first, so that you avoid driving or walking there and finding out that they don't accept broken consoles.
