how much do they pay you per game you sell. I know they don't give much I'm just kinda curious. I have 3 games to sell: GRAW 2, SM3, and BFME 2. They all pretty much suck.

You can just call the store and they'll tell you exactly how much they'll give you but you're probably not gonna get more than $10-$15 for each.

You might get like $30 max for all 3 (what's SM3?). if they have that deal where you sell 3 games and get an extra $20 than that would be good for you, but I dunno if it's going on right now. I'd hold on to them until you see something like that.

Usually if the game is more than a couple weeks old you get between $5 and $10 per game - and yes there are some games they won't even take on trade because they can't sell them anymore.

For all 3 games I'd say 30-35, however they do have trade in specials every once in a while and they will give you an extra 10 or 20% on your credit.

It's not worth it. You're better off selling them on ebay or to a friend or something. Gamestop will give you $10 for a game and then sell it for $5 off retail.

A related question: is Gamestop still buying used Xbox (the original) games?

just dont do it. keep the games. they will offer you an insult of a price at gamestop. if u really want to sell games use Craigslist or put up a flier or something. even a yardsale will get you more $ than gamestop.

Thats bs. At the Gamestop i go to they'll jus give u like 10-15 bucks for all 3 games and put the money on your Gamestop card. No cash, just credit.

Yeah, I just traded in a few the other day. I literally got 60 cents for one of them! Haha. It was a really old Madden so it's understandable, it was either 60 cents or the garbage.

it was pretty cool thought the guy at my gamespot just added an extra 10 bucks to three games i traded in so it would fully cover MGS 4. i traded in Assassins Creed, the Orange Box, and Rainbow Six Vegas 2 and got 65 bucks from all three

and i had only bought Rainbow Six myself, the others were gifts

:-) That's fine, I just have a few Xbox games that I know I'll never play again, especially now that I have my 360 (finally!), so like you say, better than the garbage.

I'd say that since they were only going to give me $12 for Darksector last week, BFMEII would probably net you $4-$9. GRAW2 around $7-$10. I guess SM3 would be about the same, $5-$7. Best bet, use Goozex or sell them on eBay or Craig's LIst.

I'm sure if you would get more money if you sell on Half.com (eBay) rather than Gamestop.
