tivs.ca has some ESTIMATE thanks to people who update games on there.

If you find out more recent values, create an account there and submit values for your games / games you ask in stores.

The more people update tivs.ca, the more useful it is.
Its really a useful website. Thanks so much!

According to the EB Games Trade in thread, there will be a $25 value on $8+ trade ins towards a PS3 around the 14th to 17th to a max of $250. Wouldn't it be better to wait for that deal rather than this one which requires 10 games at that value? I'm curious as I plan to purchase a PS3 this month but I only have a few games to trade over $8.

it the same trade. 10 games = $250 , but you only paid $20 extra to get the new bundle.

you can do the trade, then return it for different one if you don't like, the credit it still apply

Regular price is 299.99 so if you do it that way, you'll pay $50 instead of $20. My guess (based on history) is if you trade 10, the price will drop to 269.99 instead of 299.99 so you won't end up with any extra credit but rather you get the unit slightly cheaper/promo pricing.

:rolleyes: We were just pointing out that they've had better deals in the past (and not even that long ago) and there will probably be cheaper, and easier to get deals during Boxing Week.

It has nothing to do with that at all. We're saying EB has offered far better deals before and probably will again so this is a waste of time unless you need these consoles right now and have 10 (10!) qualifiers. At least with the other deals if you only had say, 6, you could pay the rest off in cash.
As mentioned, Boxing Week will probably offer much better than this.
This may come as a surprise to you guys, but there's this thing called Christmas that's coming up real soon. It's something that is a pretty big deal for those with families, kids, loved ones, etc. :rolleyes:

There will always be better deals, and it's very common to have had better deals in the past even. So what? I realize there is a large, pasty-faced RFD contingent that never needs to consider others, but still....

LOL I got my vita using a Trade5 deal at Futureshop. I'm sure that EB's qualifiers are not that good to make this deal worthwhile. Move along folks, it's a rip-off.

I paid something in the range of $50-$70 buying cheap qualifiers for my vita via the previous T10 deal at EB, if the qualifiers are $8+ again, it might definitely be worth it. T5 at FS required as much cash on top as I paid total for the qualifiers.

I don't know why people are complaining, if it's for $8 qualifiers, then this is even better than what you used to get: $25/qualifier is what we've always gotten at EB, now there's another $30 off on top. Seems like a good deal to me, especially if you're looking for a 3G vita (which has its MSRP at $299). Old deals were T2+10 for a $60 game and everyone was happy with that: 5 new games at $60 = $300, that's 5x(T2+10) = 10 games + $50. Here it's 10 games + $20 for the same value, how is this not better?

How is this a better deal? Amazon has the Vita with AC3 for $180. It also came with 3 months of PSN Plus (which would have got you Uncharted, Little Deviants, and a couple of other games).

Not to mention the bundled games suck and 3G connectivity isn't worth it at all.

Wasn't that deal 5 + $100? That wasn't so hot either tbh.

I don't need 3G, but obviously there's a market for it or they wouldn't release one, this is probably the cheapest way to get one. If I could find qualifiers in the same range as last time, I would end up paying 70-90 for one, that's a pretty good deal. That's even a good price for a PS3.

Would you complain if EB reintroduced T2+10? Given that games drop to $40 about a month after release? If not, then why complain about being able to get a Wifi Vita cheaper than a 3G Vita?

I think everyone has missed the most important question, could they have found a lower resolution photo of a PS3/Vita?
First thing I noticed!!! :lol:

but 8 dollars is the new 15 dollars when it comes to eb qualifiers. someone posted a big list of recent games that didn't qualify and that brought me back to earth real fast
