    The follow up:

    GameStop gives $50 gift card to Deus Ex PC buyers, apologizes for removing OnLive coupons | This is my next...

    Edit: not that I want to receive an open box when I purchase something new, but this is kinda crappy.

    yes, i saw the gift certificate. unfortunately, it's for used games, and only at gamestop. considering the markups they have on used games ($45 used game when the new one is $50--yet trade-in is only $25), they're practically jerking themselves off.

    i don't pay full-price for new games, and you see here one of the reasons. last "new" game i bought? $19.99 for a copy of fallout new vegas about 2 weeks ago. haven't played it yet though.

    What are you trading in that you get $25 for? All they are is a glorified pawn shop..Not too surprised by this I guess..

    I bought a game from gamestop awhile back for 60.00 new.. Took it home played it for about 30-45 minutes and hated it.. I took it back to game stop within an hour and a half and they offered me like 15.00...

    sounds about right. and they'll sell that game used, for at least $45, so they're making 200% profit on it.

    p.s.
    i don't pay more than $30 for a new game...unless it's a VERY special exception. i can buy 2-3 "new" games for the cost of 1 new-release.

    I'm with you on that one. I've found that if you're willing to wait 2-3 weeks after a game is released, you'll usually be able to get it for about $30-$40 on Amazon.

    Thadd, where all do you buy your new games if not from GameStop? I'll only shop there if they have a clearance.

    fallout NV was from target. sometimes i buy on amazon too. just depends where i happen to spot a good deal. $20 is usually a good buy for me, if it's a game i'm sure i'll like.

    i buy from Gamestop for the preorder stuff.. I had bought Socom 4 pre-order for a special shotgun, that ended up having worse stats then the first one you start with.. the game I talked about above..
