With the US release of the PlayStation 4 on Nov. 15th and the Xbox One a week later on the 22nd, we’re proud to announce that we’re beginning to track the trade-in values for a new generation! Happy trading!

Right now we’re experiencing some technical issues in updating tracker values and hope to have this solved soon. Hopefully this is something that can be fixed this weekend, and we apologize for any inconvenience.

If you use Chrome, you can make trade-in value look-ups even easier! When visiting an Amazon video page, a pop-up is added that allows you to view the trade-in value history for that particular title, all without leaving Amazon.

Try the Amazon Trade-in Value Tracker plugin on the Chrome web store!

New Site & Blog

Since the Amazon trade-in value tracker launched back in 2009, we’ve grown from 2,000 games tracked to over 10,000 – and ever growing! And we’re closing in on 1 million values tracked! For you stat junkies, here’s some other interesting facts about the values in the past two years:

  • Super Mario All Stars is the most volatile game with 334 price changes since Aug. 2009. That’s at least two changes per week!
  • Most valued trade-in? Dream Dance & Cheer on Dec. 22, 2010 at $364.25!
  • 360 is the most popular trade-in here, followed by PS3 then Wii (according to site traffic).
  • Most of our traffic is desktop, but 10% of users are using our mobile web app.

I would like to thank the folks over at CheapAssGamer.com for their inspiration and support. Many of the ideas and suggestions were inspired by the friendly members of CAG, which without the tracker may not be where it is today.

What can you expect from this blog?

To be perfectly honest, not very much; I know you’re really here to track trade-in values. However I do plan on posting when new features get added or updates to the tracker have been made. Additionally you can voice your grievances, complaints, or thoughtful suggestions in the comments below.

Happy tracking!
