Selling Some Games And Gamestop?

How much money would gamestop give me for Uncharted: Drake's Fortune, Killzone 2 and Battlefield Bad Company also God Of War III?

Thanks Alot

Answer on Selling Some Games And Gamestop?

Gamestop doesn't generally give a lot of money for games.

Even more recent titles, like yours, will only net you about $10/title, plus whatever special they happen to be running at the time.

If you have an Edge card already, you get at least 10% on top of what they normally pay out, but even that won't boost it very much.

I've had very good experiences selling games through Glyde (glyde.com) myself. Glyde's main benefits are they act as a proxy between you and the buyer, and they make it real easy to deal with shipping because when your game sells, Glyde mails you a self addressed envelope that you use to mail the game to the buyer. The downsides are Glyde takes 10% of the proceeds, and charges you a $1.50 for the envelope (they make the buyer pay for the postage)

Still, I got $10 for a game that would have normally only gotten me $2-3 from Gamestop - and the buyer got the game for about $13 when Gamestop would have charged him $20, so we both got a deal.
