I was really wondering, i've never traded a game in, and I'm just about to beat Max Payne, so I was wondering how much they'd give me on a trade in. Because I know for a fact they will sell it for like $5 less then what I paid for it, how much do they give you for a used game?

Give me a US amount if you have to, but like I paid $77 canadian for this game at my EB, so the less they'd sell it for is $70, how much of that goes into my pocket???

games here are 50 bucks, i would say EB would give us about maybe 35, or 40 for it if even that

depends how old the game is. if its fairly new they will give you about 20% its shelf value back.

How much CREDIT they give you depends on the popularity of the game and how recent the game is.

I just traded in my Max Payne pc copy and got $15 for it and put that towards Max Payne for the Xbox!

Max Payne for the pc would be considered a hot pc game, so $15 is probably about as much as you will get for a game.

However, EB was running a return 2 xbox games, get 1 new xbox game for a while. Not sure if they are still doing that though.

We returned Star Wars and one other crappy xbox game and got Blood Wake.

I buy most of my games at Microplay and have been doing so since my PS1.

I purchased F12001 and NHL Hitz at the price of 90.00 canadian each including taxes.

I was not satisfied with the F1 game so I wanted to return it or to trade it in thinking they would give me about 40-50 dollars to use against purchasing NHL2002.

They offered me 20.00 bucks.

Even after I paid 90 for it just the day before

Not alot, definitely not enough money to buy a new game.

just this week at EBX, i got 20 for an xbox game, and was offered 3 bucks for SSX [PS2]. i laughed and kept SSX. they would only give store credit for a game right there (no coming back later), so i took bloodwake for 30 bucks after trade in.
