Over the last 18 months I’ve been debating buying a PS3 primarily as a Blu-Ray player. Once I got into Lost and watched all of that, I decided to get the PS3 so I could watch Lost in HD when the complete collection came out(because other than the final episode I watched them all on my computer or on my Blackberry or on my Ipod Touch).
I’ve spent like 3 months waiting for a PS3 deal so I could buy one – with so many deals these days I basically refuse to buy anything at retail. Even if the deal was “$10 off if you come in wearing a wrestling shirt” I’d do it – just something in my mentality where I can only purchase something via a deal.
Then I was going through some stuff and cleaning out my reciepts file, when I discovered an old EB Games card from when I traded games in a few years ago. I checked online to find that there was $90 on it! So I then decided to take in a bunch of my other games to trade in and put that towards the price of the PS3.
These were the games I traded in and the prices:
Far Cry Instincts: $4.25
Trauma Center(Wii): $7.00
Assassins Creed: $4.00
Civilization Revolution: $12.50
Call of Duty 3: $3.75
Call of Duty 2: $5.75
Saints Row 2: $6.25
Gears of War 2: $7.50
Trivial Pursuit: $2.75
Project Gotham Racing 4: $1.25
Smackdown vs RAW 07: $0.70
Gears of War: $6.00
The Godfather: $5.25
Total was $73.45. So I ended up putting that and the previous card together and getting a PS3 for about $140. Sweet deal. Now to start building up my Blu-Ray collection. So far all I have is Lost, the Bourne Collection and Taken.
