    Hey everyone, i'm just wondering if anyone has gone to Canadian EB Games / Blockbusters and traded the following games in (and please tell me what you got for them)

    xbox 360

    Gears of War (like 1 week new o.o that game is f**ing short) [Hoping >$30]
    Sonic The Hedgehog (played like 5 times, been sitting in its case since then) [Hoping >$30]

    xbox

    Rainbow Six : Lockdown [Hoping >$10]
    Battlefield 2 : Modern Combat [Hoping >$10]

    playstation 2

    Gran Turismo 3 [Hoping >$5]
    Sonic Heroes [Hoping >$10]
    Star Trek Encounters [Hoping >$10]
    Tomb Raider Angel Of Darkness [Hoping >$-500]
    Red Faction
    Enter The Matrix
    SSX : Tricky
    The Getaway Black Monday
    NBA Street 2 [Hoping >$10]
    Downhill Domination

    Block buster has a trade 4 previously used games get Halo 3 free (preorder) so I'd like to trade there, but they have a small list of games I believe

    Anyway, please if you have any experience, tell me what i should expect if I decide to trade in at each place

    I bought Gears for 59.99 "used" (although there was no usage that I could see) so what it'd be somewhere around $30?


    zomg :P


    They sell Sonic for somewhere around that, I bought for 39.99 (sale) and I dunno


    o.o

    usually 1:3 isnt it o_O

    anyways, your more likely to get a better price at independent stores rather than chains, if you live in the UK try game station, they have a trade in price promise last time I checked

    Don't go to EB. I work there and if it isn't a brand new high demand game it won't go for more than $10. Then it will end up getting sold for $50 lol :D.
