[citation][nom]LATTEH[/nom]i wonder if they will give you more then Gamestop?[/citation]

I wonder if it could possibly give less than the video game mafia, maybe at least Wal Mart will have the integrity to not rewrap it and call it new.

I see a couple things in the linked tutorial that I see a problem with. First of all, you don't get cash, you get credit to your card, and you need to submit identification as well. For what? Are they afraid someone else will credit your account in your name, or do they just want your personal information linked properly? Better stop to read those terms.
Second of all, unlike what this article says, I don't see anything about scanning the disc, so they won't give you extra for turning in things in good shape, which a live person who doesn't work for organized crime would do for you.

[citation][nom]Shadow703793[/nom]Ok, so what if you have a fake game (aka torrented) with a real or fake box?[/citation]
That's why the charge to a credit or debt card rather than give cash.

Don't imagine it will take PC games. Still, if it did, perhaps I would buy some PC games used that I wouldn't buy new. That way if I didn't have time to play them I wouldn't feel bad about it ^_^.

Very few places take used PC games nowadays with all the DRM, limited installs, Online Activations, Steam, and various other reason that thwart resale.

a machine will scan the barcode of your game box and inspect your game disc for suitability and value.

[citation][nom]bill gates is your daddy[/nom]I like how they say it's going to give you real money back but then turns around and says debit or credit card only. Last time I checked that's not real money.[/citation]

Would you rather have Wal-Mart money you have to re-spend there? As far as I'm concerned, money on my Visa is as good as (or better than, in some cases) cash in my pocket.

Great idea, but games i buy used or new i never trade in for money etc. I'm a collector type of guy, i love collecting games. This will work for those who need money back instead of store credit to buy whatever you need.

Ummm...No. Store credit is not real money either. Cash in my hand will always be better than "credit" on a card.

What is real money? Is it the useless green paper that is printed by the big machines? The Federal Reserve note, used to be worth a certain amount of gold, but since the Twin Towers fell on 9/11 (and building 7 fell, which wasnt hit by anything) all the nations gold was stored under those towers. It's not there anymore and nobody knows where it is. Plus it's been said over and over again, if someone wanted the Gold for the cash the U.S. has printed there wouldn't be enough at all. So as of right now, cash is soley the labor hours of the slavery we were all born into.

and btw a Debit Card is linked straight to your banking account (and no visa or master card), so they are giving you virtual ones and zero's just like the whole banking system actually is. Do yourself a favor and put all your money is a FIRE SAFE safe and get it out of teh banking system. You wont be sorry.

Not when someone knocks you on the head on your way out of Wal Mart and swipes your $20 bill. Were you not too much of a luddite to realize the myriad benefits of properly using credit/debit cards, you would still have your $20 and you probably wouldn't even have that bump on your head.

Yes, please take all your money, put it in a safe, and leave the banking system behind. Then, when the apocalypse comes, you will have all kinds of paper to heat your house with. Jeez, if you are going to be chicken little at least give good advice! Buy gold!
