    This is a limited offer, the old switch can be traded for $225 and the new switch with extended battery is $300. So if u didn't hack your old switch you can get the new one for only $75.

    Why?
    Gamestore is the biggest ripoff since used gaming was a deal.
    Why promote them?
    And why even bother to switch? (haha)
    Srsly, be happy with what u have, and dont buy the same shit over and over again.
    2.5hrs more playtime? Who cares.
    Im not talkin about cost. Im talkin about where it all ends.

    exactly. My local GSs would think I was trying to trade in a broken system if I tried to trade in for the same system.

    They want to get the juicy unpatched Switches before they get expensive.

    Well some people in another thread wanted to get the new model so it would be better to just spend 75$ rather than buying it for $300

    Who are you to decide what people should spend their money on? They can determine for themselves whether it's a worthwhile deal or not.

    Because.
    Jein, but most probably Ja.
    Because.
    Because.
    Sounds wise, but why to be wise?
    Who cares -who- cares?
    It's well known all roads lead in Rome.
    Nyet. Africa is too far away, they probably end in Poland.

    PS: actually I would agree about not generating unnecessary waste, but the tone of the message made want to be annoying.

    No thanks. Screw gamestop. I'll wait to get the Switch mini and I'll get it from somewhere else. Gamestop is the worst. In the mean time I'm more than happy with my current hacked switch. Even with being banned lol

    Promotes gamestop and then complaints when that backfires. Yea, sounds about right.

    I'm not gonna give them a single dime either. Having to pay 75 bucks for a minor upgrade isn't reasonable when you can get a venom power bank for half that price and 10+ hours of additional playtime instead of 2.5 to 4 hours.

    It's not like it's generating unnecessary waste, anyway. Unless Gamestop have an extremely bizarre business strategy, I'd imagine that they are intending to resell the traded-in units for, you know, money.

    Not only that but it's a way to get back the unpatched units from the market, maybe they have a deal with Nintendo to do so.
