I don't usually trade in games but honestly I beat all these games and didn't see myself playing them anymore.

I traded in Far cry 3, Assassins Creed 3, Tomb raider and Black ops 2 (Hated it).

I got The last of Us paid off and 40 dollars deposit on the ps4.

Basically I got 110 trade in value.

Not bad for games I never planned on using ever again. They had some promo going on. You guys should check it out.

Funny thing is the guy at the counter automatically assumed I wanted a ps4 and not the xbox one.

Anyways, Im really pumped to play the Last of us.

""As a side note""

I was going to buy a ps plus subscription today but wasn't sure if i register it today, if it will carry over till next June on the PS4. The guy at the counter didn't know either.

You can get some decent credit as long as you have the right games and work the system when they offer those special deals. That's about the only time it's ever worth trading back any games, honestly.

I'm kind of thinking of following suit today and trading in some stuff.  I'm just hoping I get at least $200 for everything, or else it wouldn't be worth it.

How much did you get for Far Cry 3? I just bought it brand new from Walmart for $20 and I don't like it at. I want to trade in Uncharted 3 because I beat it and I want to trade in Far Cry. I hope a coupon for 50% more trade in value. Any idea how much I could get?

I kind of agree with you but there worth less sitting on you shelf collecting dust. I've had some that I thought I shouldn't trade in because they were great games, thinking I'd play them again. Well two months later they were still sitting there collecting dust so I just trade them in now. I rarely play a game twice, even masterpieces like The Last of Us. Don't know why either. I figure, been there done that, ya know.

Did the trade-in promo apply to the PS4 pre-order or just for The Last of Us? I've been waiting to pre-order mine until they had a promotion for trade-ins towards it.

It was for the ps4 and the last of us. The last of us promo is over but im not quite sure if they still have any promos for the ps4 preorder. I think it was only a one week thing.

I wouldn't trade in games even if I could get god money off of them. I like to keep a collection of what I've played.

You must have done "Ok" selling all those games. I wouldn't have traded them though.

Selling the games individually on Craigs list or Ebay is the way to go to get more for your games. Go below used game retail but well above what Gamestop will give you for trade ins.

I normally don't trade in used games at gamestop since they often try to rip you off, but once in a while they do that "trade in games, and get a new game for $10" deal :).

And that's so freakin' hilarious that the gamestop employee automatically assumed you wanted a PS4 :P.

As stated above, your PS Plus subscription will carry over to the PS4. I wanted to add that if you apply and are approved for the Capital One "Playstation" credit card, you will receive a 1 year Plus subscription and $50 gift card to add to your PSN account. You'll receive the rewards after your first purchase with the card. For those of you interested.. check it out.

Sony stated PS+ will work on that account it is registered to across all 3 platforms, ps4, ps3 and vita.

Its tied to your PSN account name, not a system.

Nice. Metro last light is a great game and bishock infinite is great also.

Sometimes gamestop has good trade in deals, you just have to keep checking the website.

I normally dont trade back games. I like to have a collection for each system. I have about 40 games for ps2 and over 30 for ps3. When I buy the ps4, i will probably have 30-40 games for it by the end of its cycle too.

Yea I'm pretty happy with the deal. A system I haven't played ,much at all recently and no interest in anything else coming out for it for 5 games I haven't played, a new controller and a couple other things. I'm happy with it

Between now and PS4 launch, I'm going to start trading in all but my Top 10 or so. I'll be trading them in for the remaining big PS3 games. I also need to get Metro: Last Light and Dead Space 3 as they're the only big titles I've missed so far this year.

Right there with you, buddy. When I was a kid, I traded in many games & a couple handhelds and got crap for them. Now, I would do anything to get them back... :(

I find if you go during promotions then you shouldn't be doing that bad with trade-ins.  And yeah, I usually go to the same two Gamestops and I don't think anyone working there is eager to promote the Xbox One (I went there the other day and the guy was still talking current gen for next year to play Dark Souls II, which I'm amazed is up for preorder almost a year in advance).  Though, I'd assume they want to sell the One since it's $100 more (I'm guessing that ends up helping out the stores if they can sell more of the One).
