They may take it but they definitely wouldn't sell it until the street date (release date)

Blockbuster also accepts trade-ins around me. They typically give you five more dollars than Gamestop will, but you only get store credit with them. It's pointless unless you plan to use the money to buy another game.
GS pushes the used titles for one reason: It makes them more money!

I can see one reason for going used rather than going new. If you are an Edge card member. The Edge card costs $15 bucks for the year (can be cheaper at times, but you also get a magazine subscription). It provides 10% off used games and accessories and it "stacks" with their other deals. So a 54.99 game is actually less roughly $50 if you are a member.

I shop at Gamestop regularly, so the Edge card has paid for itself multiple times for me and I think its one of their best perks.

As for Blockbuster...they're just too iffy in terms of selection. Their prices on new merchandise (espc movies) is terrible and the ones around here usually have jack for games. Some Blockbusters sell those prepaid gift cards to other stores though and you can use the store credit to buy them.

Forgive me if this has already been mentioned as I do not wish to read five pages at the moment, but trading anything to Gamestop (ever) is a foolish act. Considering that the game has yet to be released, a post on craigslist or eBay will get you nearly all of your money back.
