it is very easy to collect SDM points that can add up to an easy $150 off the purchase price.

toaster2990d ago

lol What the heck.. this is so pointless. Why not just go to Futureshop or an electronics store with people that actually know a thing or two about gaming.

n4gn4gn4gn4g2990d ago

employee ANYTHING about a PS3? Its a commodity and more availability (especially at a store that offers up to $150 off) is great for the consumer.

Legosz2990d ago

You really don't need to ask someone to know that the PS3 is the greatest piece of gaming hardware available.

wicko2990d ago

I think you missed the point. It is pretty easy to get points at SDM, unlike FS or BB. 150 off is pretty awesome.

Genesis52990d ago (Edited 2990d ago )

I don't see anything wrong with trying to get your products into as many retail outlets as possible. In Canada Shoppers are high consumer traffic stores.

This way you go and get your valum and a game.

HighDefinition2990d ago (Edited 2990d ago )

1. This means the PS3 is getting popular, they only sell what`s "hot" when it comes to gaming.

2. Similac = Points = Games = A Very Happy HD

Nicholas Cage2990d ago (Edited 2990d ago )

its just not in the form of a substance you smoke or shoot up. and these drugs come in the form of "godkiller" "drake" "gt" "infamous" "ratchet" and my favorite drug "solidsnake"

halojunkie2990d ago

your a genious! bubbles.

HighDefinition2990d ago (Edited 2990d ago )

I wouldn`t tell a bunch of dudes on the net that your "favorite drug" is the Solid Snake.......


RageAgainstTheMShine2990d ago (Edited 2990d ago )

finally PS3 games at my convenience! Few minutes walk ^^

Just so people know, Shoppers has been selling Nintendo Wiis and Ds' for some time now.
They are pushing the fitness games with them. (Wii fit mainly)

They are definitely picking up the PS3 because of PS MOVE. (Fall 2010)
The people at Shoppers are very pro-active about promoting healthy activities for young and old.
My GF used to work there in the pharmacy and got a discount, It would have been great if I could have got a PSP or a 2nd PS3 at a discount LOL.

@GHINASKY above, don't expect a good selection of games. Unless you are into the latest Sports Active or Brain Trainer game you most likely won't find it at Shoppers.

DaTruth2989d ago

You guys remember how small this store was twenty years ago? Now it's almost a superstore! You use to find them in the corner of small plazas, now they had to put up their own giant buildings and you never have to walk far to find them!

Next stop is Safeway biatches!

Elven62990d ago

Safeway sometimes sells games around the summer or so when they put out the bargain bin racks, at least the one I used to work at did.

Good memories, picked up that Yoshi GBA game that had an accelerometer in it for $10!

SaiyanFury2989d ago

What's wrong with Safeway getting PS3 games? If people want to get them at a place like Safeway where many people shop, what's wrong with that? So some people don't buy games at Safeway, that doesn't mean that people won't buy games there.

waltercross2990d ago

I'm a few blocks from a Safeway that we go to about 10 times a month!, That'll be Awesome if it got Sony stuff!.

playstation_clan2990d ago

this is where 360 owners go to when their console breaks to ease the pain, so its a great target audience.

waltercross2990d ago

LOL, That was Funny and unexpected!. Begin sarc/I'm not Laughing at the 360 user who does go there when there 360 breaks down, I'm laughing with you!./Sar

Forbidden_Darkness2989d ago

Wow, this post as some damn funny comments lol

HighDefinition2990d ago (Edited 2990d ago )

Shoppers Drug Mart making N4G......impressive/hilarious.

n4gn4gn4gn4g2990d ago

last comment to say I love that you talk about babies and Similac while having a gag balled Lady GaGa avatar.

Keep living the dream man.

Elven62990d ago

Shoppers Drug Mart already carried some games before so I'm not surprised that they're branching out further. I'm still amazed at all the stuff you can buy from a SDM now, it's like a mini Safeway!

Pedobear Rocks2990d ago

I've only seen DS and Wii games...the family market that SDM is shooting for. I find it interesting that this is effective this fall...right in time for Sony's 'family' push with the MOVE.

Can't wait to turn in $150 off on a PS3.

Natsu X FairyTail2990d ago

I've seen PC games , PS2 , Xbox , Xbox360 , DS, Wii Games at Pharmaprix aka Shoppers drug mart
