Checkpoint: Trading In Edition

How much longer will I be able to do this? How much longer will EB Games be around? How much longer will physical games be around? Who knows but this is why I like physical copies still.

I just traded in the following games to EB Games: 

  • Gears of War 3 – $1
  • Super Mario Maker – $26
  • Killer Instinct: Season 1 – $3
  • God of War 3 (PS3) – $0.50
  • Uncharted – $2
  • Uncharted 2 – $1
  • Uncharted 3 – $2
  • Valkyria Chronicles (PS3) – $7
  • Halo 4 – $3
  • Gears of War 2 – $0.05
  • Gears of War – $0.05

I took advantage of EB Games’ “double trade credit towards everything Switch” promotion and got rid of titles that I had HD remasters for. Until yesterday, they allowed PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 titles and I rather have the empty shelf space so 10 cents for Gears of War 2 was better than nothing. 

Now EB Games are giving a minimum of $10 for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One titles which means I can get $20 for titles like Metro Redux, Rare Replay and Halo 5 if I trade them in towards the Switch. 

It’s been Picross 3D and Yakuza 0 for most of the week. My brother and I have played the Puyo Puyo Tetris Japanese Switch demo for a couple of days though. What a great game. Looking forward to picking up that digital version.
