Apparently you can now buy Amazon.com credit (Giftcards?) at GameStop.

You can even use your credit, your in-store credit to buy them.

How long will this last?

I do not know if you can use straight up GameStop Giftcards to do this yet.

Or you can trade your used stuff at amazon and get ~25% higher value in amazon credit and not deal with gameflop

Hey, good info! I traded in a bunch of stuff three years ago because they had a promo that gave me about 150% extra in GameStop credit (which was MUCH more than Best Buy or Amazon would offer0. But I've been sitting on $90 credit for three years now since I don't shop there. Thumbs up for posting useful info!

Keep waiting, because Sony already said that they won't. And it would be dumb for Microsoft to do it on their own, because no one would buy a system where they are forced to pay MSRP.

And what do corporate apologists get out of bashing used games? It's not like the developers and publishers actually give a f*ck about consumers, anyway. Many of these games have DLC ready before release, now.

We would only be forced to pay msrp if it was digital only. With sales, it's fairly hard to avoid getting newer games at a discount now. Most games can be had cheaper new than used at gamestop anyway.

good info. Do you have to go to the store or can you do it online? I have like a hundred dollars worth of gamestop credit and it pains me to pay more than other retails just I can use it. I don't know why anyone bothers to go to gamestop (to buy new games) when its almost always cheaper else where. When was the last time there was a real gamestop deal on slickdeals that was significantly cheaper than anywhere else?

No we are the only two with this plan, no one else is planning to resale so there is enough profit to spread around, friend.
