Trade in 10 Used PS3/PS2/Wii/Xbox or Xbox360 games and get a brand new 60GB Playstation 3 for only $399.99 Canadian.
My question is why would you have USED PS3 games if your trying to buy a PS3 for $399.99?
Is that for the 20GB PS3 users??
"Choose a PS3 with optional 20 gigabyte hard drive and get it for $289.99." EBGames Canada have got 20GB PS3s?
Why not mention the Xbox360 for $299.99 with a FREE Gears of War deal or the Xbox360 for $99.99 deal?
This site is News4Gamers and NOT the news what a gamer would like to see here. Therefore, make your describtion to the story more general.
cuz im going to buy ps3, and i havent seen many people complaning about the xbox's price so meh...they dont wanna save money i guess :p
"Get a new PS3 for $399.99!
For a limited time, trade in 10 applicable games and get a new PS3 system with internal 60 gigabyte hard drive for $399.99 after trade in credit."
i was gonna post the flyer but i can't find the flyer anymore...the flyer had the info that you can trade any current/nextgen games for a new ps3.
EBGames is very picky on the games they find acceptable. If it's 360/PS3/Wii games you'll be ok, but majority of PS2/Xbox games will not be eligible...
Out of my entire Xbox collection (30+ games), the only eligible game I had in a "trade in 4 games and get Lair for free" deal was Halo 1.
Just keep that in mind if you were wondering about this deal.
Guess I'll be keeping Counter-strike :(
I got mine that way. Most of my ps2 titles were eligeable and they give you about 3x the trade in value for the ones who dont make the lust (15$ instead of 5$ for example). I proceeded to trade in my ps2 as well for a total of 350$ for a new ps3.
10 games cost you what about $500 and even if they are worth only half of that now that is still $250. I never feel these trade in deals are fair.
you can find 10 used games and get a ps3 or xbox 360..that is a pretty good deal. You can get either a xbox 360, or ps3, and sell it on ebay. You can take that money, and go on a nice vacation with your wife/gf/family, and have some fun. So if you already have games you don't want then you end up winning. Well, ebgames will too seeing they'll just take your cd, and sell it as new :-D.
You find some good games for cheap. For example, I can find Mario Sunshine for $10 where EBgames Canada give you $13 for it. Anyways, this is pretty old. They've had this deal at their store and on their site for nearly two months now.
This deal as clearly been on since March.
10?!!! JESUS WHAT A RIP, PS3 F!CKING BLOWS
So is N4G a shopping site?
10 games trade in and on top of that pay $399. Wow its even more of a rip off than what sony are doing. After that you end up with 10 less games and to wait b3yond.
I think N4G should add a "Deals" Tab where people can click on it to see the ongoing deals but maybe keep it separate from the other news.
they are leeches, they will use those 10 games and sell them as new (if they are in good condition) they will end up getting more than 600
Even if you trade in new hit games considering they're all top value games most shops give you $30 for a $60 puchase which gives you $300 in store credit. Now if they took any game at any value no matter how old that would move "some" consoles.
"Now if they took any game at any value"
It should be like that, the way it's advertised doesn't even state what games qualify. The full detail is along the lines of: "(these systems), original game box and manual."
Whereas in reality, you'll hear a lot of: "can't accept this. this is worth about 50c." And whatnot when attempting to 'trade in' 10 games.
I would only do it if I was desperate for a PS3.
trading in roughly $500 dollars worth of games to save $200 a deal? Is this that new math that I am not too current on? Not to mention you could still play those 10 old games on your new console with backwards compatability.
I say bullsh!t to EB Games. Yes I buy from them and if I'm desperate, sell to them. They give you $8 for a 360 game and sell it for $35.99. So if you trade in 10 360 games at $80, you get $200 off the price of a PS3. But then EB Games turns around and sells your games for a total of $360.00 and they still make a profit of $160.
They say 10 games but they want certain ones, lmao mainly no later than 2006. if u try bringing 1st metal gear, or madden. they'll say these games aren't on the list lmao. I wish they meant what they say instead of 1/2 ass speeches!
EB, gamestop whatever, they all suck. Last time I bought a game there was a LONG time ago. Tried to sell me a dirty, scratched used copy of MK trilogy on PS for $17, in some dirty, sh*tty sleeve. Told em I wasn't buying that and he "happened" to find a new 1 for $20. wtf.
